Balance

  • Movement changes
    • Base ship speed is no longer set by hull size (previously tiny and small ships were faster than larger ships which made them annoying when trying to chase them all down, or having them run around your larger fleets).
    • Probes get +2 moves (probes can continue to fly around and explore).
    • All ships get +2 Moves in their borders (we considered putting a movement penalty on enemy ships, but that bonus will probably be increased on military shipyards, and we wanted to reward players for connecting their ZOCs with starbases since they will now travel faster between those systems).
  • Ships now teleport across subspace streams.
  • Improved the weapons on the Stargazer ship.
  • Pushed the Discipline culture trait back to later in the Authority tree.

  • Reduced anomaly frequency.
  • Doubled the cost of Supply modules for civilizations with the Proliferation trait.
  • Prepared culture trait provides +2 Repair instead of +1.
  • Manufacture Life project of the Yor increases in cost as more are made.
  • Increased the number of planets allowed by map generation slightly.
  • Decreased the number of stars generated by map generation slightly (so there will be fewer stars without planets).
  • Added back the pirate defenders on ship graveyards.
  • Vigilant starbases hp increased from 50 to 100, increased attack values all from 1 to 3 and removed defenses.
