Hi Everyone,

The 20th Anniversary of the release of Birth of the Federation is now less than 2 months away "May 25 2019" it is gratuitous that it also falls on Saturday.

I propose we gather on GameRanger for quick multi-player games and reminiscing about our favorite game.

I will try to be on GameRanger as much as I can that day and night and hope to see you there.

Re: Playing as the Borg

These are good ideas too. I also think the Borg should then get a bonus in defending against ground assaults and a bonus when to comes to being bombarded. It should be harder to "liberate" Borg worlds They do have a CombatStrength of 2.0, the highest (along with the Zakdorn). The Klingons, for inst...

Re: Playing as the Borg

Ok, so I reduced starting ships for the Borg: Early, Developed: 1 Probe Sophisticated: 1 Probe, 1 Sphere Advanced: 2 Probes, 1 Sphere, 1 Cube Supreme: 2 Probes, 2 Spheres, 1 Cube What do you think? Also, I've been thinking about completely removing orbital batteries for the Borg. And maybe not start...

Re: Playing as the Borg

Hi, I have been playing Supremcy on and off for a while now and I played as the Borg for the first time last night. Let me start off by saying it is awesome to have the option and it was fun going around assimilating the galaxy. Hi CaptScarff, thanks for your excellent feedback! The Borg are still ...

Re: Supremacy new release

So, the Klingons found a recently established Romulan colony, and sent a couple of Transports over to teach those sneaky bastards a lesson. But when they got there they got gready and went for Romulus instead, which was only a few sectors away... (I helped a little by deactivating the OBs - since I ...

Re: Supremacy new release

Some localization, customization and clean up work.

Finally cleaned up, and improved, the code for invasions and respective fallout. Needs testing.
Improved system assault code for the AI - next, to actually teach the AI to assault systems...

Re: Supremacy new release

Troop Transports now cost Garrison to build.

Fixed the messy display in the envoy assignment button after an assignment - refresh hasn't been addressed yet though.

Re: Supremacy new release

The Economy overview mode now shows resources and planet bonuses present in the colony (letters only, need to change to proper icons), and also current build project. The Task Forces tab in the Assets screen now also shows the rank of each ship. (posted a couple of pics on BitBucket) A few other twe...

Re: Supremacy new release

The overview modes (Economic, Military) now work correctly.

When scrapping stations, the correct station is now scrapped. Still need to fix the scrap menu.

Re: Playing as the Borg

The Borg can now only build their race-specific Buildings (not universal ones) - which means they'll need a bunch of new Buildings for resources, etc.

The game no longer hangs when Special Events were set to Off and playing another civ.

Re: Supremacy new release

Apparently I must have disabled agent spawning by accident... probably with the crash fix. Found the problem and fixed it. A few bells and whistles in the diplomacy screen, like the border of a civ's image is color-coded according to relationship, the civ's image is dimmed if it is eliminated, the ...

Re: Supremacy new release

Apparently I must have disabled agent spawning by accident... probably with the crash fix. I'll look into it. I've increased initial resources for Early and Developed levels, so that building an outpost is not such a drag. I think I'll have to tweak weapon damage, it's way too high late game. I'll p...

Re: Playing as the Borg

In the next release, the Borg will have a base growth rate of zero. I'll add a Maturation Chamber building to add +1% GR (to act as the Immunology Centre). I'll need to block the universally available buildings from the Borg build list.

#271 - Invading 2 star systems in the same turn results in an exception.
(as a temporary workaround, the game only allows one system assault per turn - until this gets fixed)
This was finally fixed!
