  Game crashes at load in
Posted by: Greydog - 08-08-2020, 01:20 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (4)

For one character out of 5.

Malcanis: JWZX

Character actually does load but the game shuts down as soon as the environment tries to load as well.

Grizzic: AFBJB

I was curious as to whether this was system wide or just planetary, or maybe just the character, so as a test I berthed this character into the others ship. This one is now stuck as well so I guess that makes it a system wide thing.

This is an old and crude script I cooked five years ago.
Somebody could find it interesting.

  "Offer a bid..." input limited to 999,999,999 cronodollars
Posted by: Mal - 08-02-2020, 02:29 AM - Forum: Bug Reports - No Replies

Ran into this issue when trying to buy a large number of expensive items from a colony to clear its inventory of lower QL items.

The problem:

When you do 'Ask for items' > 'Offer a bid' you can only enter up to 999,999,999 Cronodollars.

[Image: Aq5D5b2.png] < --- as you can see that's a bit of a problem here.

So there is no way to give the merchant what he wants currently. The fix: adjust the textfield so that it allows you to type more digits.

As a bonus: You are actually able to go over the 999,999,999 if you use the increment arrow. But it isn't exactly practical doing that 2 million times.

[Image: tdzLUFq.png]

And yes, I know that you can trash items via the building menu, but they are spread across all buildings due to being broker imports so that would take a painfully long time. So I'd rather just...not. Would greatly appreciate a fix for this!

  Star Map Gone (mostly)
Posted by: Greydog - 08-01-2020, 01:25 PM - Forum: Bug Reports - Replies (5)

I'm not so sure this is a bug but I'm going to ask here anyway.

I bought a new PC last week. Since then the "map" part of the star map won't load up.

After installing the game I copied the xml  file to the new programs folder. Now everything in the map works except the map image itself. All the data is there, all the tabs work, it will even populate the list in the right column ...there is just no map to navigate.

Is there something I was supposed to do that I missed?

I'll copy/paste this in here just in case. I have no clue if anything in there could be the cause.

Designer Wiki
Designer needs to be documented in the wiki.

Designer is now documented in the wiki.

All places in the designer that used to display a usage tip were changed to open the appropriate wiki page instead.

All usage tip text moved into the wiki.

Usage tip window removed.

nan% Relative Humidity
Some inferno worlds report nan% for relative humidity.

Exponential calculations in the formulae for saturation pressure and relative humidity produce unpredictable results at the extremes of heat and pressure on inferno worlds. They sometimes overrun the numbers of the computer, resulting in a broken number. The variable containing the number then returns "nan" when formatted, which means "not a number".

Weather information will now report "Humidity Undetermined" when the relative humidity is not a number.

  City display on Starmap
Posted by: Neils Iyssada - 07-20-2020, 08:30 PM - Forum: Arena of Ideas - Replies (3)


From what I heard the other empires cities you already discovered aren't notified on the starmap if there's no owned city close to them.
While that acts as a basic fog of war, it's a real pain. For example I wanted to get an overview of the cities in a radius of 5 systems from my colony cluster - but I couldn't because I don't have my cities spread enough to get more than a radius of 2 sectors. So I discovered some cities in some systems and couldn't see them anymore when I moved my ship away.

Why ? If it's there to have some fog of war mechanic, why not displaying the visited cities as they are already known to the player?

Actually to be visually notified of a foreign discovered city you have to get a city close to it.
What I propose would be that once you spot a foreign city, it's saved into the starmap and you can see the dot even if your cities are not close enough.

  Station Broker Slider
Posted by: Greydog - 07-19-2020, 12:06 AM - Forum: Arena of Ideas - Replies (3)

As far as I can tell (correct me if I'm wrong) Stations only have 2 brokers. I find that stations not over a city may need more. It would nice if we had a slider in the designer to add to or decrease that number.

i was under the impression that the auto-intrasystem trading would include a station that had been towed to a gas giant?
