  • New Game Rules - valid from 17.9.2012 Quote from Game Rules: “4. Bashing It is not allowed to attack any given planet or moon, owned by an active player, more than 6 times in a 24 hour period. This rule also applies to moon destruction missions. Probe attacks and interplanetary missile attacks do not count towards the bashing rule. In specially-designed universes announced on the forum (board.en.ogame.gameforge.com/) the bashing rule can be modified or abolished. Bashing is only allowed when you…

    Quote from MikeGrinder6: “they don't see the actual issue in this game... they're just trying to buy our trust with this universe... ” And here is yet more proof that even if Gameforge does EXACTLY what players DEMANDED for years, they're still completely wrong, at least according to this community. You don't like Gameforge or ANY of its decisions. We get it. It got very old years ago. Give it a rest.

  • As far as I understand it, each a:b:c will always have the same planet graphics in any universe, but not necessarily the same picture as a:d:c, or x:y:c. Planet temperatures and fields are not in any way, shape, or form tied to the planet graphics. The only thing that affects the ranges they randomly pick from is the planet slot (the :c).

    Quote from Sneikku: “But who asked for this?” The players. That version 6 is a message system update was decided directly from an ogame-wide poll of the players (granted that poll was years ago, but that Gameforge isn't a fast development company shouldn't come as a surprise by now). Many of the features were long-time suggestions from the players. There have been changes to how things have been done in the update based on feedback from the players. It's not perfect, no, but I dare you to put ou…

    EDIT: Whoops this post isn't needed.

  • From the Formula Thread... Quote: “Construction times: Buildings, in hours: (Metal + Crystal) / (2'500 * MAX(4 - level / 2, 1) * (1 + (level Robotics Factory)) * (2 ^ (level Nanite Factory)))” There's a time reduction for the first few levels. With the given universe speed of 5, a robotics factory level 4 (not 6 as reported) and with a conversion to seconds... (1'000 + 500) / (2'500 * MAX(4 - 1 / 2, 1) * (1 + 4) * 5) * 3600 = 1'500 / (2'500 * 3.5 * 5 * 5) * 3600 = 24.686, rounds to 24 seconds. (…

    Not all communities picked their top 3 suggestions by community vote, iirc.

    Nobody said that Gameforge would only pick from the top results from each community. Just that the top results would get coupons (which they did afaik). And just to try to head off future complaints, nobody ever said that Gameforge 100% will actually implement any of the suggestions, top results or no. They're very likely to do something since they went to all this trouble, but just saying. EDIT: Rereading the original post I can definitely see the confusion. "We will make a poll then to find th…

    Unread message counter is known to be bugged. Quote from Dark Depresion: “But at least it was designed for the player foremost” No, it was a hobby project foremost. Number of clicks is not the absolute measure of usability and you know it.

    A bunch of Antigame's features should be external. If it's a feature only some people would want, if there's multiple ways to implement a feature, if there's tons of confusing customization options, if it crowds the screen just to implement it, it should be the realm of a tool. The only thing really wrong IMO about the redesign was the lag, and they've already largely addressed that. A bunch of stuff was an improvement (such as not needing to scroll and scroll and scroll just to see the level of…

  • If multiple people are having trouble understanding what you meant, then it is quite likely that your original point wasn't clear. That is a basic rule of communication. You can't just blame them for not understanding you, you have to endeavor to be understood, if being understood still matters to you. Is your "contradiction" thinking it unrealistic that a damaged ship could explode even from a shot not breaching the shields? One could argue that the shield generators redirect some force into th…

  • Where is the contradiction? IMNVS/Kelder's post does not talk about chance to explode. At all. It only talks about how damage to the shields is rounded to whole percents of the shield's strength (the actual source of the bouncing/ineffectualness rule) and how combat can and will end early when neither side can destroy anything due to shields. So, if you want to understand chance to explode, ignore that post. Chance to explode will be triggered when a) a unit is fired at, and b) it has less than …

  • If a target gets hit, after all the shot damage is calculated it has a chance to explode. It doesn't matter the strength of the shields before or after the shot. The only thing that matters for chance to explode is how much of the hull is remaining. If the target has less than 70%, then it has a chance to explode of 100% - remaining hull% (aka % damage). Say we have a ship with high shields but low hull. Shot hits a target, it's at 60 / 100 hull. This means it has a 40% chance to explode after t…

    As far as anyone knows, the moonchance code only cares about how much debris was generated during a single attack. If the amount is the same (or similar with respect to how the formula works), then the moonchance will always be the same. It doesn't matter if the debris came from light fighters, plasma turrets, or a mix of everything. As has been overwhelmingly said, you've just been unlucky.

  • When I was playing uni 35, I built a meager defense on my moon. The one time I had to leave resources behind for want of cargo capacity, someone tried to cargo raid without noticing the defense. Too bad they got they got the debris before I got back on.

    Nice to see someone linking our Cumulative Cost. Unfortunately, as far as I know there's no tool that calculates how long it will take to build up ...buildings, taking into account multiple planets, time to mine the resources, change in production from the higher levels, and construction time. It's theoretically possible, just not so simple since it has to know what order to build things.
