Re: Large Map Bug

I mean, does that problem start happening when you get to 255 systems?

I believe the option would be "number of systems min/max" somewhere in settings.txt in the data folder of whatever mod you're...

Re: Large Map Bug

Any chance that system limit is 255?

Something to try; make a quick mod to give a low cost warppoint opener component at starting tech, and try opening a warppoint to one of those cut-off systems....

Re: SE4 - What's still around?

All of my stuff had a URL change; dyndns -to> duckdns.

But its still there!

Re: please advise: weird bug

When you don't have the shipset that the other player chose, then SE4 will pick a random replacement set so that you can see *something*.

When you view the empire details (right click) one of the...

Re: TF Orders

Do the ships need to have capture planet as their design orders?
As soon as you break formation your ships start using their individual strategies.

Also, if the planet has weapons, the ships...

Re: Who's Left?

Hey, DogScoff.

I recommend, and use myself on the kubuntu netbook:
Virtualbox
+ Seamless mode
+ SE4
+ windowedSE4

Its the best of both worlds, with a windowed SE4 floating among your xterms...

Re: Newbie Pre-purchase question

You might also consider SE4 with CBmod (link below).
No bonus makes a tough game, and you'll be crushed on your first few games.
Low bonus or team mode makes for a very tough game even for experts....

Re: SEIV on Steam: where should I place mods?

Re: Just Stopping in to say hi.

Of course!

Re: A favor...

The same reasoning applies to overcomplicated ground combat.

You've got to limit the scope of scales you're dealing with, and not go overboard.

You could have SE4 style with the focus on grand...

Re: A favor...

To go along with that;
- An open PLR/orders format.
That way, people can write their own AIs which act just like real players.

Re: A favor...

Additive modifiers must be purged.
50% and 50% should equal 75% (or 25%) not 100%.

The additive XP scheme is the one thing that sticks out with a sharp and unfixable point to me. All the rest of...

Re: What other games do you people play?

Me and Se5a are doing a remake of the game, so it should soon be a lot easier and faster and graphical to play :)

Also moddable out the wazoo.

Re: What other games do you people play?

Well, given that you stuck out to the end in an 18 hour straight marathon epic game, I'd say it is too late for you DL :D

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

While there are no none-atmosphere gas giants, all the gas giants are medium or larger.
You also need fewer colonizers to grab more facility slots, which helps during the initial rush, but you'll...

Re: How does PBEM work - exactly?

PBW2 is independent of the LAN.

But in the case of a LAN and scripting:

- Make a shared folder for transfers.
- Script:

2)...

Re: How does PBEM work - exactly?

At the very minimum, you will need to be given the "gamename.GAM" file.
You will also want the "gamename.CMB" (combat replays) and some of the gamename_stats files, but they are optional.
You'll...

Re: Looking for the Supersized Planets mod...?

There was a definite performance hit for making the system and planets 100x bigger, so I did a tradeoff and made the system/planets 10x bigger and the ships and camera 10x smaller.
