Posted: Mon Sep 27, 2010 11:29 pm Post subject: Dark Nova 4.29 fix list
Recently, there's been renewed interest in Dark Nova 4 on the PBW2 site. After playing several turns of a new game, I've compiled a list of fixes to put out into v4.29. I've got a fair amount of 'hotel time' next month because of work so I'm looking at getting this update out for then.
I wanted to post here my proposed fix-list so that I can get feedback and (hopefully) suggestions from others on what else should be on this list or options for how to make some of the proposed improvements.
-increase kt of unique/racial hulls (+ other benifit?)
-increase range of unique/racial hulls to full range (dreadnaughts. worldships?)
-increase production from hybrid resource facilities
-Reduce size of Shells
-increase power of unique racials (almost even with racial?)
-increase power of Enhances techs
-nuclear/fission reactor, fusion reactor, anti-matter reactor (weaker versions of quantum reactor)
-better balance PD weapons (lasers & Flak should do more damage. normal PD should do less than others)
-remove colony slug ship
-adjust speed of transports (too fast compared to other hulls)
-add Dark Nova Reboot empires
--- Dark Star Alliance
--- Black-Star Hegemony
--- Star Empire of Terra
--- Interstellar Confederacy
--- Cardassian Union

--- Meropa Hive
