New Maps, Dominion Dreams

I just wanted to get word out on a little project I've been putting far to much time into. I've been messing around with a fractal terrain generator, high-res scans of old gaming maps (Martin...

Re: TIME TO PAY UP!

Re: re-making mini.map

Gandalf,
One other thing. The 'links' page you setup for the random maps has some broken links. Specifically to the .zip files (windommap.zip and dommap-win.zip) Also, the new 'prettier'...

Re: re-making mini.map

Gandalf,
I think that there are parts of GIMP1 that could be used for a simple army testing ground. I'm very glad to hear that you are going to right a more complete guide to map modding. ...

Re: OT: Flowers for the grave of MoM.

EotFS and MoM improved remarkibly when patched. They were good on their own, but a few patches really expanded their scope. Emperor was 100% less buggy and MoM was like a completely different game....

Re: How much time do you spend per turn?

Usually about 1 hour per turn. When playing SE4 I noticed my turns were taking far to long while I fiddled with all the settings. What was happening then was that my turns were very effective, but...

Re: Newbies and Confused People - Look Here!

Re: OT: Flowers for the grave of MoM.

MoM alone caused me to upgrade my computer. The animation for the nodes brought my 486 to a stuttering standstill. I loved the game enough to sink cash into a new system just to get that one part...

Re: Where is everyone?

This is one of the quieter forums in Shrapnel Games, but I don't think that its a lack of players. Space Horse has limited "mod" capabilities, so I guess there aren't ongoing discussions about how...

Re: discovering warp points

It's too bad that the game doesn't allow for hidden warp points. That really would be a great option for gameplay. You can just imagine ships hunting around for warp points that may, or may not, be...

Re: Gas planets vs rock planets???

I have to admit that I like Rock planets with no atmosphere. Almost every moon is prime even with limited cargo space. Once I get Ice tech it usually gives me the rest of the moons as well as...

Re: AI Ram

After checking out other threads, I just realized that the AI pulled a fast one on me yesterday. It sent a colony ship and escort into a VERY undefended system of mine. I wasn't too worried, and...

Re: best ship components against planets / WP\'s
