Re: Beta Testers Needed!

Hi,

I would be interested in play testing. I was a beta tester for Space Empires IV and V, and (long, long ago) for The War Machine (originally sold by Shrapnel). I've also tested a number of...

Re: emissive armor possible fix

From a balance perspective, would it make sense to make emissive armor do what it does now, but make it take up a LOT more space? That way, you can shove it onto a large ship (BB, DN, whatever) and...

Re: Two New Races Completed

Atrocities,

BOTH race sets are very professionally done, and are tres cool. I don't know what software you are using, but your results are excellent.

Re: I was thinking the other day and came up with a nifty idea.

Mines in their current implimentation are pretty uninteresting. However, with a little modding, you can create some cool options.

Re: A better system for combat

While I will happily agree that the combat system could use some modification, I have never seen a "one of mine goes, then one of yours goes" system that doesn't a) bog down and b) end up with its'...

Re: mounts

Think of the missiles as really good proximity fused warheads. They *seek* then explode close enough to the target that they never "miss".

Re: Seekers performance in really BIG battles

CW,

Re: Most bang-for-the-buck hard code changes

Mac,

One of the easy things to do with missiles vs planets is to build weapons platforms and satellites armed with PDCs. The PCCs, when in range, will stop missiles. That makes it much harder to...

Re: Miniaturization Tech

Interesting. I wonder if the problem is really related to file size, or if it's caused by tripping over some max number of components.

Did you try asking Malfador about it?
