Re: My Concerns & the State of the Game

Hi Caleb. Any recent updates or future plans? There was a great burst of activity a year ago but things have quieted down I see. Did I hear you were considering adding some new functionality? Just wanted to check in... still keeping an eye on the forums.

Hope you are well

Re: My Concerns & the State of the Game

Thanks for your replies gentlemen. Moving the conversation away from any contentious topics :) I like the idea of a draft war. I wasn't involved in one in the old SE. Could someone explain the logistics of that to me? Sounds like some good courses of action Caleb. What I'm reading from your post is ...

My Concerns & the State of the Game

Hi All, I'm posting this because I'm very concerned where I see the revival of SE headed. As of Beta war 7 there are just not enough players to make a viable/playable experience and more people are leaving the game every month. Here are the statistics for # of unique players in galaxies after the no...

Re: 0.9.0.3 Update

Hi Caleb. Looks like some great fixes and finds. I had about 5 or 6 crashes last night as I was using the planet library and highlighting groups of stars to color them various colors. Had this happen I believe with and without galaxy/prov maps being open. Not sure if you can see any logs from around...

Re: 0.8.9.4/0.8.9.5 Update

Hi Caleb. I'm still seeing a lot of issues where folks are not able to target missiles with lasers. Also I'm seeing more issues than before where the bottom two text windows are not scrolling properly and I'll be missing conversation that's going on. Probably items you're aware of but thought I'd me...

Re: Alpha War 2 Feedback

I'd also like to see a way to list teams and all players on the teams without having to select each team.

Re: Alpha War 2 Feedback

What do you think about an "apply setting to all planets option"? Say if I wanted to set all planets at 90% guns 10% fighters, or set eng allocations a certain way on all planets. Or set armaments across all planets? As a FYI I find I exclusively use the Web PM. If you could clean up the W...

Re: Alpha War 2 Feedback

Caleb can you check what happens if a planet with .99 hydro then later gets say 1.5 agri assigned? I would have thought food would immediately start to accumulate. And I would have thought that the percent capacity of hydro would start to decrease downward from .99 over. I just must not be understan...

Re: Discussion on the best approach to revive SE

Thanks Caleb for your very thoughtful reply.

I'm a bit short on time right now to respond at any length - but it was very interesting to read your responses. I'm interested what the rest of the community thinks as well.

Re: Alpha War 2 Feedback

I encountered two items during scouting last Friday that I wished to report. 1) I noticed some weirdness while utilizing a probe, and flying my ship into systems at the same time in terms of trying to do libraries on the system my probe is in (not using the command line). I found if I just operated ...

Re: Alpha War 1 feedback

Hi Caleb, Can you do a confirmation for abandon planet in the GUI? Seems like it would be very easy to abandon your planet as you're clicking around. I've love a confirmation button or option before nuking your planet and all your guns etc... Thanks for your prompt response to the unemployment reque...

Re: Alpha War 1 feedback

Thanks for your replies Caleb. All your points make complete sense. I forgot about the blue/red gas giants and hostile planets. Its been quite a few years. Maybe i was initially taken back because hostile planets looked like a mars type planet instead of a hostile one. Keep it the way it is, but may...

Discussion on the best approach to revive SE

I wanted to start a thread for folks to discuss the best way to revive this game. And what SE 2.0 circa 2013 needs to look like to be successful. I found SE to be a groundbreaking game in 1997 when the first open betas occurred. 4 week persistent galaxies. A GUI client which gave more opportunity fo...

Alpha War 1 feedback

Hi Caleb, First off, i'm very impressed, no major issues i can find. I wanted to start a thread where folks can leave their feedback. A couple items of feedback: 1) As we discussed in the game the chat and info windows can get stuck sometimes. I like how you can look through them and they will hold ...
