Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

Not related to the Bobit situation, but we need I think one diplomatic action that share supply but not information (view). This is especially important in a one-winner-only game with diplomacy, where every alliance is supposed to shatter one day. Yes sharing supply means that the ally can send scou...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

Regardles of that, can all the players see the diplomatic status between other players? Whether an empire is at war or not might give an indication of whether battles might be happening. I think we do, yes. I saw the war between drkosy and oo1g at the beginning of the game, when obviously I had no ...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

First two cases are same for me, a player tells us something got wrong. Not entirely : first one is the player's responsibility (doesn't mean we can't be kind to him though of course), second one is a technical problem he may have no control over, so it's at least partly the server's host responsib...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

To all Emperors of the Galaxy : We/I have been recently (and painfully) made aware that not everybody is George¹, so we/I make this call on official channels for those who do not share thoughts naturally. A specter haunts the Galaxy, the specter of an all-planets Empire. Our neighbour, who pretended...

Re: Colony Independence Decree (new building) and thoughts about conceding

I think you mean "prize" instead of "price" in most of your post (except for the last occurrence) ?

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

Today (sunday) I have a family event and will probably not be able to play at noon.
I may play one turn around 7-9 h GMT if there is one to play and it doesn't require too much deep thinking, and in the evening I'll probably be able to play normally.

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

Diplomacy mechanics: - You can select an empire in the Empire window, right-click and ask for peace (if at war), declare war or propose alliance (if at peace) or cancel alliance (if allied). - Empires at peace won't shoot at each other, and can gift ships and planets (the receiver must have a ship ...

Is there a way to allow "unable to colonize natives" only ?
They make for some diversity (and strategic topology) without making the game totally unbalanced due to luck...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

What are the rules for Diplomacy, by the way ?
I mean both the coded rules (what are the diplomacy options and where to see them) and the gentleman's agreement that is supposed to be respected by players on how to behave ?

Re: Allow build evacuate system on outpost

make evacuation a focus so you have to choose between defense/influence/supply and evacuation. also gets rid of the building. I like it. Imho the burned ground approach doesn't actually add to the gameplay. We should allow evacuation of colonies and outposts only for strategic reallocation of plane...

Re: Music

My experience with royalty free music in the past hasn't been too positive. It's ok if it's exactly what you want. I don't get this part ? The point of Creative Commons (which is more extensive than just "royalty free" if I'm not mistaken) is that you can modify anything, so if you like something b...

Re: Music

Some nice things and ideas indeed. I wouldn't even know how to find out what license it uses. I suppose I could research this. https://freeorion.org/index.php/Audio says the license needs to be https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ . About the license, apparently on Soundcloud if it's Crea...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

When launching the game to play the 4th turn it stalled at the "fake settings screen". After that when I exited twice (and closed Firefox which was eating most of my RAM) and re-joined I had to login again with an OTP for the first time since I joined the game. Is that normal ? Now I got a message "...

Re: Fiftteent game on the multiplayer slow game server

Thing is, I have email open on my computer, but I'm not all day on my computer. And K9 on the phone doesn't notify me of new emails if I don't check, which I don't want to do compulsively. I probably also can play several turns in a row around 19-22 UTC (no guarantee though - by the by, what's the r...

Re: Music

Also, when turns take a few minutes to compute (which happens on large galaxies), a specific music for the time between the moment the player clicks "end of turn" and the moment the new turn actually begins ? This one could use vocals for example. On an unrelated topic, the serie Battlestar Galactic...
