Re: [Balance] Research speed

OK. Confirmed. The Radeon 12.9.2 driver version works normally, the newer 12.12.2 makes the game unplayable. Reported to AMD. Just a small report back on the Research Speed and Agent hiring progress: General info: Reached Turn 160 by now - no contact to major empires. Found 6 table wormholes. Put Su...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

I reported the issue to AMD...it is 100% the new Driver causing this problem.

Reverting to 12.9.2 works all fine. Since driver crashing or even OS-Rebooting occurs in multiple games (Civ 4 BtS e.g.) I think it is a more generic issue, hopefully solved by AMD.

Re: [Balance] Research speed

OKAY... Big game stopper right now. I had to update to the latest AMD Radeon Adrenalin 2020 Edition driver (v12.2) - the problem is. I cannot start Supremacy now anymore, it completely crashes the driver and I have even to reboot the OS. I have no clue why and how this happens or whether it is a pro...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

No use in comparing different situations.
Indeed ! I'll turn random events back on in next game. We'll see how it works out ;). Maybe you find it useful to add some counterbalancing positive random events to add until then as well :-)

Re: [Balance] Research speed

Ah...then maybe there is a flaw in the probability calculation. I understand that you put a probabilty check in, which checks EVERY system vs the 1/600 "odds", right ? But that means if you have like 10 colonies the total probability ONE such event occurs raises by a factor of 10 ! The more colonies...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

As for research speed: Yea well, like I said before, that's a problem with playing a Huge galaxy... there isn't much I can do about that except reduce the size of Huge galaxies. OTOH, you could try a smaller galaxy and see how that goes :wink: You might get to experience those battles with early shi...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

Wooaaa - lots of changes :-). Lets not rush thing OK - just because of a single opinion :-). I'll try to answer all in order. Regarding Random Events I changed the parameters of those following your feedback (though I think in part it was just luck - or lack of). The latest release should be better ...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

OK - last post for today. Just a small update on the progress and I can confirm that Surveying Ion Storms is working as you describe and not as I thought. Surveying of Storms is only possible with 1 Surveyor at a time. Recruitment Turn 11: Antaak - Retired in Turn 114 Turn 20: Vorok - Retired in Tur...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

So far nearly 100% of the wormholes were double-ended (alias I could travel them). The surveyors can be positioned on each end of such a wormhole. I did not try placing multiple surveyors on one object. I assumed this would have been blocked by the game engine - as it would in my opionion be clearly...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

Which population reducing events? There are currently 12 Random Events, 9 negative and 3 positive (plus 2 positive colonization events). Of those 9, one is just -Credits (Embezzlement), another is just deactivating stuff (Solar Flare). 3 are really harsh (Asteroid, Comet, Supernova), but set to 50%...

Re: [Balance] Research speed

You haven't met *any* race? Major or minor? Ah, I was not speficic enough in my post. I have not met any Major yet. 3 Minors so far. All now part of the Empire by now. Heh, IIRC I toned them down in this latest release. I haven't yet fully understood how the random events are triggered, so it's not...

Re: Playing as the Borg

Can one look up the Fleet Population Support value somewhere ? (Also for the other races like Klingons, Feds etc.)

Re: [Balance] Research speed

By too high you mean there should be more time between agents, or less? I think more time between Agents might be an idea. Right now I have 7 Agents - but 0 in "use". The best Operative that is idle in your homesystem will also act as your counter-intel chief of operations, protecting your empire f...

Re: Supremacy new release

Hi,

sorry I was off for 3 weeks...just wanted to say that I didn't drop the game. Just got really busy in RL at the moment.

Is there a new version out yet ? Though I will probably have little time until after x-mas to test :-/
