Re: Glorious Stars Intro (feel free to jump in)

Lest the diplomatic channels go utterly dormant as House Raptor's recess wears on, House Phoenix would like to take the floor and call out a specific challenge facing this Assembly: the challenge to reach out a peaceful hand to help our less-fortunate brethren in neighboring systems. For example, wh...

Yeah, that looks super-rad :)

Re: Glorious Stars Play Aid Website - Alpha

I love the graphic! It looks totally badass. The only thing I'd say it's missing is a class-name link next to each hull in progress, ideally hyperlinked through to the ship-design view. Maybe ships under construction >1 CC, thus requiring multiple shipyard slots, should get represented graphically r...

Re: Glorious Stars Play Aid Website - Alpha

I think I remember seeing a mail or posting (which I can't find now) that you actually need TRANSPORT FLEETS to build a Starbase unit (each such fleet in the system lets you funnel 10 EP per turn toward the construction cost), and that a shipyard is neither necessary nor sufficient for Starbase cons...

Re: May 2013 Development Update

I believe Maint$ is measured per unit as a fraction, but per empire, for purposes of calculating per-turn maintenance expense is always the sum of M$ for all all units, facilities, etc rounded up to the next whole EP.

Re: Glorious Stars Play Aid Website - Alpha

Probably need a different gun icon to represent multiples of 10 combat factors: a 1.5x size dome with a double-barrel perhaps? For colors, my suggestion: DV #00BF00 •••• ¤¤¤¤ PD #88DD00 •••• ¤¤¤¤ AS #BF0000 •••• ¤¤¤¤ AF #DD8800 •••• ¤¤¤¤ CR #0000BF •••• ¤¤¤¤ CC #0088DD •••• ¤¤¤¤ EDIT: PD looked a li...

Re: May 2013 Development Update

...Supply ships are going to carry 10 supplies per point when they're not being used to carry any other cargo. A Supply (3) unit could carry 30 supplies. Each unit then "eats" 1 supply per point of command cost when it is out of supply. The name of the ability could be changed back to Cargo, or "su...

Re: Glorious Stars Play Aid Website - Alpha

Oh, one tiny quibble with the system description graphics (which are otherwise a super-easy and intuitive view of the colony stats, BTW): http://i.imgur.com/17JdSa5.png ... the open circle at the end seems to indicate a small rounding error. Shouldn't 30 be three filled circles? It's the same on the...

Re: The Glorious Stars Playtest

That's an excellent idea. How about that up-to-date first post (or a similarly edited-up-to-date second post) with the player/empire list also specifying the current diplomatic agreements active in-game? It'd be like a central Assembly registry for membership and relationships, both pretty crucial f...

Re: Glorious Stars Play Aid Website - Alpha

Now that the GS playtest email thread contains a template Turn Orders format, I wonder if we could revisit the notion of adding an entry form to the web system? Probably doesn't need to be anything fancy: freeform text fields for each of the "phases" to keep things open-ended and not too rulebound o...

Re: Glorious Stars Intro (feel free to jump in)

One opportunity this legislative assembly does afford in immediately offering a peaceful climate to all member Houses is this: a formal, universally-recognized central arbiter for inter-House agreements. House Phoenix encourages all delegations herein to make immediate use of this advantage to secur...

Total population. Gross Domestic Product. Gross Trade Income. Total maintenance cost (and perhaps broken up by category, ships / bases / ground / facilities) Tech level, and research progress as % and XX/YY Active treaties and declarations with my empire's name in them. Thatd be a pretty awesome sta...
