Just out of curiosity, is level 1 insanity research supposed to be 600 research points, where as level 1 research is 500 research points? Seems low considering the possible calamities involved with this facility.

It starts low, but is Sqr so is the end it is 3600 vs 1000 for the norm. And while the chance of having a "accident" is base on the num. of insanity centers, the tech level decide the level type of accident.

I complete forget about the FQM mod add-on, I'll try to get a add-on out with hopeful a lot less bugs in it, unlike before.

Ugh, you still haven't gotten rid of Formula Studies and replace your random research formulas with scripts like I suggested? I thought you said you'd do that for v9... Sad

Oh good on the Insanity Research. The Spica Group needs some dark R&D projects on some desolate rock somewhere out in the fringe. Evil or Very Mad

It seems that you are unable to apply any kind of armor on your ship shipsets when you're playing with the Organic Host trait.
No problems for Bases, sattelites or freighters. Haven't tested drones.

I have had armour on my Org Host designs.
I use organic armour.

There is a design trade off between speed(i.e. the number of engines present), defensive armour and offensive pod weapons or defence drones.

Have you maxed out the number of engines on your ship design?
If so there will be no space for armour.

Similarly if you use less than max engines, but max out podded weapons you won't be able to add any armour either.

Aha!
I thought that the speed/armor tradeoff was applied only as the text in the armor description said.

Great! Smile

Going back to do empire wide battle once more.

Oh, so now instead of armor reducing your speed with the same number of engines, it just counts as an engine itself? That's pretty cool! Hope it consumes supplies as you move, though...

Now I want to use that idea in Stellar Warfare Mod! Very Happy

And I came up with some enhancements, too - in addition to external missiles, you could have external bombs, external cargo bays, external supply and ordnance storage, external unit launch bays...

Maybe you could even reduce the supply usage of all engines, but instead give all hulls an intrinsic thrust ability of zero but with a supply usage proportional to their mass? Dunno if that will work, though... might only work for components, not hulls!

There is already an external fighter bay component.

If you have been following the beta thread, you'll see that mixing them with real fighter bays slows down the launch rate.
OK on the like of colonisers though.

VC Corporation, I kind of sort of have an idea how they work, but am looking for a bit of detailed explanation on how to master them.

VC Corporation work with the Corp/Private Funding event to provide a way of increasing the amount of private research points the event product. The upside is that VC is a small building that provides some resource from taxes collected from it. And that it also has a random bonus value that time the standard RP it provides between 0-4. Now on the downside if you have to many in the game there is a small chance that a few planets will get unhappy. Now if you have a lot ,over 100, the unhappy doubles so enjoy. Twisted Evil Oh also there is a chance that you may not get any research points at all to due to the random bonus of VC too. Surprised

It seems that somewhere along the way the Xi'Chung have lost their organic trait on quick start.
Intended ?

I never use quick start, so no. I'm not even sure how they lost it, honesty, I never work on them or worried about them. Anybody got a clue on how I could have screw them up. At work tonight, so I can't work on it, but still like an idea, thanks.

The PBW game will be open to new players through Friday, October 19, and we'll start on Monday, October 22 with any players who have uploaded emp files. (Or over the weekend if everyone who joins gets their emp files in sooner!)
