Re: Time for AQ9

Since you're drumming up support for a new AQ game, I will crack upen the data files and incorporate the changes suggested in the following thread: http://www.circus-maximus.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=427&t=5485 I should have it knocked out and packaged for ][avok by next weekend. [edited to add] If...

Re: Time to end it

As always guys, I appreciate your comments.

One of the challenges of the AQ mod is that it the ships can be fuel hogs. Which is why I tried to reduce the cost and increase the utility of the fuel-related ships.

Looks like the Cardassian's RANOL Transport is in the CYBERNAUT's hull slot.

Looking for setup advice

I used to host VGAP games for our local group of gamers before I found Circus Maximus, but have fallen out of the habit since then. Last week, I got an unexpected surprise when one the local players asked me to set up a game for a small group of his friends. My original intent was to run a small gam...

Re: How did you started in VGA Planets?

I've posted this story before, but it bears repeating ... "I was playing in a shareware game back in the early 90s when I was still learning the game. I was playing the Feds, and I had snuck a NOCTURNE into Crystal space. Well, I got flushed out by an EMERALD BCR and zig-zagging back to my empire, b...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

First I’ll address your comment about the Orions since I’m the resident Orion in AQ8 … I have not built a single B’Rell in this game. The only ones I have in my Order of Battle were gifted to me by generous neighbors. - From a trade perspective, I don’t like giving a neighbor a cloaking minelayer, ...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

One way to give them more teeth is to make their main carrier (Victory CV) lower tech with a higher capability similar to the Borg Diamond (Tech 6: 7bm/7bay/320KT/95 cargo/3 eng/410 fuel) or Dominion Jem Hadar Warship (Tech 6: 8bm/8bay/335KT/115 cargo/4 eng/390 fuel). Making the Victory lower tech ...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

Just a note. The "Military Freighters" that list fighter bay for some races and torp tube for other are all fighter bay. I say the same issue and it comes from an error in the original scenario documents for AQ. The shiplist correcly have the fighter bay some gameplay is as intended. Exactly correc...

Re: Alpha Quadrant: Maquis Fix

Logain, Thanks for pulling the Maquis Fix issue into it's own thread. I have been tracking the discussions and suggestions so far. Here are my initial thoughts. THE MAQUIS : Maquis Carrier boost: Unless I see a better solution, I'm going with this one. Maquis Cloaking issues: Some background: in AQ,...

Re: New Alpha Quadrant?

Once again, thanks to all you guys for all the Alpha Quadrant love. The Maquis is clearly the week link in Alpha Quadrant. The question is how to fix it. Thematically, the Maquis was added in last during development - originally Race 11 was going to be the Bajorans, but there simply weren't enough s...

Re: Welcome to Alpha Quadrant 8

Thanks for the report, casebolt. As I recall, the Klingon and Romulan carriers in Alpha Quadrant were among the ship designs that went through several modifications during our local beta-tests of Alpha Quadrant. Both carrier designs were originally more massive - somewhere around 300. As a result, I...

Re: SFB4 AAR (Klingon Perspective)

Excellent AAR. Very glad you enjoyed the SFB Klingons - one of my favorite shiplists!

I loved how you "acquired" your Romulan "heavy scout"!
