Yet another question..
Are glory devices in phost business as usual, or is there some mechanic for reduced damage on allied ships?

Enemy ships will get damaged by the same amount as one mine hit.
Own ships, and ships you offered the ship and combat levels of alliance, will get 10% of that damage. The "low damage" in the name refers to just that.

Thanks again, and, another question. Page of game description sais ESB 33%, in pconfig.src it is commented.
Since I hope to be the richest guy in the cluster once I grow up.. will there be ESB?

Don't forget that there is another significant difference between Phost and THost.
You need fuel!

In THost, you can set a primary enemy, together with "trg", to detonate. No fuel required.
In THost, you can set a FC of POP without fuel to detonate.
I Phost you need at least 1 fuel on board for either operation.

This is a real pain, as it removes a lot of options.
You can no longer set a ship without fuel to trg, so that it is only affacted when a cloaked ship comes to the planet.
Now because you have to put fuel on it, it runs the risk of being destroyed if a non-cloaked ships attacks your planet.

Check your shiplist.txt, BitMask tends to hide it in there :twisted:

Look in shiplist.txt and you will find the ESB in there

"Game runs 3x a week until turn 30, then 2x a week & when all in. Game is set 100 turns."

So seems about right :)

Ehm, I just found out another problem in the PCONFIG.SRC (taken from latest zip file):

Code: Select all

### Production
  RaceMiningRate                  = 70,200,100,100,100,100,100,100,70,100,100
  ProductionRate                  = 100
  ColonistTaxRate                 = 200,100,100,100,100,200,100,100,200,100,100
# NativeTaxRate                   = same as ColonistTaxRate
  MaxPlanetaryIncome              = 5000
  BorgAssimilationRate            = 100
I have a 200% tax rate.
Now I don't want to complain about a minor detail like this... :P

How do we solve this issue? I have no idea how much money I have obtained due to that (nor how much was stolen by pillaging klingon bastards :evil: ).
Maybe set it back to normal, and remove something like 10.000MC or 20.000MC from my homeworld?

Sorry for not spotting this before, but I suddenly noticed that setting a 25% tax rate, gave me 5000MC, and that got me a bit confused.

Newspaper head lines would read like "Badass vet plays double-taxed Borg, everyone dies horribly."

Drinks are on you - forever?

Turn back to 100% and continue I'd say.

:shock: I am not sure if this can be fixed. Where was this config used ? Federation war 1/2 ?

Some klingon bastard pillaged you ? Great guy =D> =D> =D>

Just come a little closer with your biocide, please. It might seem I am running away - but I am not. I am just flying in the opposite direction !

It's the config of FedWar3.

What is one lightyear for a biocide. Your ship should have died out of shear terror :P
In the end all of those pillaging gits will get whats coming to them.
Death, because we do not assimilate inferior races!

Well, the question is ... why is the tax at 200% ?

"So far, so good, this you borg think,
come even further, your blood I will drink.
Gowron am I, and great is my god.
Come to me, come, down the path few have trod."
