Re: Stuff is pretty bad now.

I agree about the turrets. There used to be that xp award /message when you killed a turret. Apart from being satisfying to see the little message pop up it also let you know you had killed the turret so you could reshield without leaving wounded turrets that will heal. Now there is no information s...

Re: Increasing hardware on ships

12 hardware slots for all war ships would be so much better. 8 nukes cant kill anything, 16 nukes is o/p.

Re: Baldurs Gate vs Diablo

I prefer the IWD games over BG. Both games have great level design. The main difference is that the IWD games allow you to create your own party. Where BG you have to recruit the oddball characters the game offers you. Also in BG its annoying because if your main character dies its game over (and he...

Re: fix to overpowered mods

I came up with an idea to fix the overpower issue with some mods...make a limit to how many of any one mod(s) that you can have at once. yes, this or the Starwynd idea both sounds like improvments. Also I propose scanners have their own slots which are not inter-changeable with other mods. There ca...

Re: Nerfing the solars again? Really? =====POLL=====

10 shot solars are boring as you cant really dodge between them, you just have to walk right through the wall of fire coming at you. It just becomes about credits, or having enough players pile into the colony. Maximum solar should be triple-shot, this would be tricky enough to dodge but do-able. Al...

Re: Y not new arties

Atleast artifact hunting and trading would become a more on-going part of the game, so some players might specialise in selling them, but artis should last atleast 2 months or it would be too annoying.

Re: On EXP and most of the game...

You might have a point about xp being too easy to generate from colonies, the old style 'build xp' you want to bring back is good as you have to make a choice between producing xp or weaps or credits etc that makes it interesting. Ive always found 'building xp' a weird concept though, setting your c...

I hear what youre saying, but I think 8 nukes is not enough seeing as it cant kill other 16k ships, upgrade to 12 nukes would be optimal and not overpowered.

Ever since IG and CEO got 16 missile bays the ISC and Seth have been horribly inferior. So... upgrade them to 12 hardware slots each (and probably upgrade battleship too). 8 slots is no fun anyway, you cant kill 16k shields with 8 nukes, even if they all hit the enemy will limp away with 1000 or so ...
