Re: OT: Thinking About Buying An XBox360

Atrocities,

Definitely get the Xbox360. My kids have had it since last Christmas and it's great, especially for first person shooters. Make sure you have an HDTV to get the full effect. Also...

Balance Mod - Flags

Unlike almost everbody else I like the original size flags in the stock version. How do I go about modding the originals back into the Balance Mod?

Re: Big Cheese Thread ~~~

I think this is exactly as it should be. Maybe the cost of troops vs fighters needs to be adjusted, but airpower should beat a tank any day.

Re: Understanding the weapons and balance

I have had quite a bit of success with all missiles, however you will still need PDC for missile and fighter defense as well as killing satellites + Small DUCs so that fighters will have a ground...

Re: Empire-Wide Espionage and Technology...?

That is correct, sabotage - empire wide does steal tachs. Sorta counter intuitive.

Re: Feature Request: Pickup from enemy planet

It sounds like there must be some enemy units you have not killed on the ground. The AI will have a certain number of militia based on population + whatever troops they build + any WPs still...

Re: Strategies for \"clean\" planet capture (renamed

This will be a bsic problem for your proposed strategy. Unlike SEIV WPs in SEV are not destroyed first before damage is applied to facilities and population. I have witnessed my ships destroy...

Re: Which are the corresponding txt/csf files??

I agree that they are pretty cryptic. I think we need an AI flowchart and then documentation of the implimentation before we can do anything other than trial and error on imroving the AI. An AI...

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

Brings up another question though, is line of sight functional in ground combat and are facilities capable of being damaged by friendly fire? I assume if you start firing heavy weapons in the city...

Re: More than just \'weak\' AI?

It would be nice to know how the AI system really works so that we could start making flow charts of what a good AI should do. I looked at the empire data files and ended up just guessing at what...

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

Another quick and dirty solution is to allow satellites to be active for ground combat and allow mounting ground capable weapons. Just a couple of quick adjusts to the data files.

Re: Units and Abilities

The majority are used in someway on existing unit types. I have not yet tested the ones that aren't so obvious.

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

Regarding WPs for ground combat, IMHO I think one should be able to build some type of ground based installation to aid the troops in defending the planet. The problem as I see it now is that even a...

Re: Balance Mod Available for SE:V

As I mentioned in a previous post WPs are one of the three units set to be active in ground combat, however none of the ground combat capable weapons can be mounted on WPs using the stock data files....

Re: Units and Abilities

Not sure on that exactly but I did see in the data files that you can specify that a unit in cargo can fire in space combat.

Re: SE 5 Editor

Devnullicus, this is awesome. Should be a huge help. Any chance to do this for AI scripts? I personally that AI is the most "broken" part of the game and needs a ton of modder help.

Ground Combat

I've though it would be nice to be able to build armed "bunkers" to aid in defending a planet, sorta like a ground based weapons platform.

Well, while reviewing the data files, I noticed that WPs...

Re: A dirty hack to improve the AI\'s research

You can steal tech using "Sabotage - Empire Wide". You still can not try to steal specific techs.
