Re: Where's the rest of the map?

Zakblood's reply in the second post totally confused me and seems to contradict Pavelk's later reply. Is northwest Europe (parts of France, England, northern Germany and Ireland) part of the base game's play area? Or does is have to be added as a mod?

New Polaris Sector Patch

According to a recent dev post on steam there is a patch coming. I am shocked that there has been no news here, on the official forums. I am relieved that work still goes on for this stellar game, which I think is the best 4X game on the market. https://steamcommunity.com/app/418250/discussions/0/17...

How about some news, Dev?

This great game has always suffered from lack of news from the devs. So, how about it, what's going on? There is a lot of room in the game for improvements - game size, UI, AI, more races, ships, galaxy size, techs, etc.

Re: BSG Deadlock - Dev Diary #7 'The Endurance Update'

The May 29 update is listed as v1.035. My install file from purchasing the game on May 30 is listed as 1.09. This implies that the setup files are a significantly later version than the May 29 patch. This seems unlikely. Are you guys being consistent with your patch and game versions numbers? Do I n...

Re: Commands While Paused?

I, like so many others, play only solitaire vs the AI. I have no interest in any game that does not allow me to pause processing, review the situation an issue commands at my leisure. I made the mistake of buying the original AoE and regretfully deleted it from my HD after discovering this fatal fla...

Commands While Paused?

Can commands be issued while the game is paused and reviewed? I find no mention of this in the game description or in any reviews. This is THE make or break issue for any "RTS" type game for me.

Re: Hydroponics Food Production

I play on the Challenge difficulty level. Hydroponics is a vital and incredibly useful tech that allows access to critical resources. It provides just enough excess to mine those inhospitable, resource rich planets. I even colonize contaminated worlds and farm them just for the tiny excess that cumu...

Production Frustration

Production trade-offs are not documented. We need pop-ups or some other documentation that tells us that (For example) deleting 4 factories will open up "X" farming slots or "Y" research slots. ... or deleting 3 farms and 2 mines will open "Z" factory slots. Right now, it is all a huge guessing game...

Battle Control Frustration

The battle controls are lacking and poorly documented, IMO. After I create a group and tell it to "Keep Formation" I then want to tell it to go somewhere. I point to another part of the map and click there. The formation is then displayed at the destination location, but it is reoriented in an undes...

Re: DLC and Patch

I found and posted one (two?) bugs that I ran into directly to the Dev many, many months ago, which he fixed for the next patch. I have quit playing this otherwise very, very good game until I can play it with that bug (and others I have seen posted) fixed. I look forward to buying the DLC. In my op...

Re: Graph Label Question

Maybe. I think you should change something about it. I do not find the number of fleets to be very useful information. One race could have 50 fleets each with 2 ships while another might have 20 fleets of 20 ships. The number of fleets is not very useful in such a situation. And this does not accoun...

Graph Label Question

One of the curves in the graph section is labeled "Number of Fleets". Is this right? Is it the number of fleets (groups of ships) or is it the number of individual ships? If it is actually the number of ships you might want to edit this in the next patch.

Do the ship detection stations that are built on planets "stack" in their effectiveness? How do they work in detection uncloaked and cloaked ships?

Re: Can't affect invaded planets.

Well then, there's your problem. I am pro-oppression. Oppression prevents genocide. There is no such thing as too much brutal force. And if they are so violently warlike that they build up their forces to unreasonable levels, then they are forcing me to bomb them...the warmongers. And I object to th...
