Just found this game infinity is dragging its heels good to see a development progressing eve online blows
So got the alpha 7 realise and love it.
A quick question are there plans for a system whereby as u explore and trade u will have an impact on colony development – ie if u trade into a outlying system a lot it will upgrade, population grow it will become better defended or the system itself will upgrade and degrade dynamically * if u turn pirate * u can cause a system to become a pirate heaven production drops and so forth
And also are there plans for dynamic expansion and dying of outlying colonies u know those thousands of explored and unexplored systems where if u head out with some equipment u can setup a colony of youre own or u will be given missions to take out and setup equipment for a colony 1000 light years from earth and once the mission is complete it becomes a part of the game map. U and the AI ships then expand to incorprate make it thrive or kill it off
Or is the aim of this game more a space sim and outlying areas remain kind of only of use as high pirate levels mining and basic interaction or are there long term plans for a space sim but with influencing factors that make the world grow change based on youre acitons
Glad thats working for you now CelticFang, the bug seemed to be related to ship mass (I noticed it more on the small ships with big drives) and drive power, I have reduced the drive power a fraction and it seemed to work, although in Alpha 7.5+fix all drives are a little more powerful anyway so you won’t notice the reduction.
Ollobrain, I actually considered releasing that ‘fix’ as Alpha 8 as it contains a few changes, but they are pretty minor like the addition of some realistic ores and minerals for future mining as well as a few bug-fixes. The drives were also changed somewhat, I added in a new super massive super expensive fuel-less drive for a big ship that I’m working, and have reworked the drive powers of the larger civ drives and all the military drives to conincide with the increases in mass to most of the ships.
ah good now for the hyperspace to station via map feature
Oh yesties. I think this must be my biggest bugbear with Pioneer right now. Not being able to use that lovely zoomable solar system map screen to set my autopilot targets. I also miss being able to see the planets and stations there.
