Hi BitMask,

of course I did extract all custom files to my game folder.

I think it has more likely to do with this exorbitant growth of planet's core ore. I've just checked this behavior once more from turn 1 onwards. As soon as I owned a planet (including HW) every turn (except turn 5) the ore got increased by the configured amounts (see above config). It always got increased on ALL planets every turn. This is more than strange and it can't be the intended behavior! In my opinion the Continuum doesn't like this, hence striking randomly. The first victim was Gavan and me seems to be the second one....

See here the core ore development for my HW:

ore |trn1 | trn2 | trn3 | trn4 | trn5 | trn6 | trn7 | trn8 | trn9
N | 4162 |5216 | 6213 |7161|7059|8097|9306|10424| 11444
T | 2221 |3360 | 4207 |4908|4806|5784|6539|6970 | 8235
D | 3574 |4165 | 4995 |5540|5464|6504|7566|8686 | 9537
M | 1553 |1980 | 2724 |3439|2955|3223|3367|3778 | 4545

On every turn, except trn5 the core grows excessively. This goes for all planets.

A real quick question for all of the players - what are the dates on the following data files in your game directory?

beamspec.dat
engspec.dat
hullspec.dat
torpspec.dat
truehull.dat

Thanks,

Hi Klauser,

nice to have you on board here! :-)
All my files show the date: 2015.11.11 22:08

Hmmm ... those dates are correct. How 'bout any other players?

Klauser, is this rapidly growing core material really intended on this scenario?
I think it is a little bit overdone... Has it been the same in past AQ games?

Minerals are growing. Dates on files good. Cardassians are mean.

Core material should be correct. I'm using the HConfig that came with the scenario and it looks like in AQ8 I used a default one.

Same for me. Minerals are growing rapidly. The date files are the same.
But maybe I should inform you all that I am in posession of a D'Visor Crusier. I got that as a starting ship. Strange, isn't it? I reported it. After forwarding that issue to Klauser I got the recommendation to recycle that ship which I didn't. I don't to things like that on principle, even though there's the risk of the Tim Continuum striking back. Now that I see that the Tim Continuum ist attacking anyway I consider cloning that ship. Har har har! :twisted:

I would guess all you got of the D'Visor is its BMP file for when I looked at building a D'Visor I was looking at the image of a JH Attack ship but the ship specs of a D'Visor.

Does your ship have 3 beams and 6 torps or 6 beams and 2 torps?

P.S I was able to build a warship this turn. Not the same one as I tried before but a different one.

It got 3 tubes and 6 beams. Even the number of crew members was the same as for the jemhadar. Nevertheless it is A D'Visor with the typical hull mass.

No D'Visor for me :cry: I feel left out...
