Default Re: SE5, Tell Aaron what\'s on your Wish List

Improved strategies and combat. SEIV strategies are not entirely intuitive (to put it diplomatically) and some of the selections don't do much of anything. Make more real options available like having a capture ship skirt around the battle to capture the enemy's repair ship or troop transports that will drop troops in the heat of battle. Make it more likely that several ships (not just one or two) will be targeted. Improve the combat movement algorithm.

And one little one. Add an order, something like the sentry order, that will attack enemies entering the system during the turn. This would be especially useful when warp openers are around. Does you no good to defend a warp point when the enemy is more likely to open his own warp point and ravage your planets while your far superior fleet stands by and watches.

I like most of the suggestions so far, but I'm not keen on realtime combat. That's what turned me off Warcraft.

Those who can, do.
Those who can't, teach.
Those who can't teach, slag.
