how to keep npr using naval yard to build military ships
« on: February 19, 2017, 03:37:42 PM »
instead of them using civilian ones ?
looks like code issue right ?

game designed as multi nation Earth "from zero to hero" start
especially purposed to play a bit low tech small ships instead big high tech one I had in most of my games
but everybody around build 16k+ ships even their only size available shipyard is civilian one

You can't control the NPRs. If you want to do an RP game, you'll need to play multiple factions. :^)

I only want them obeying this one basic rule not theor designs or ridiculus production level
I tried to have this game running without playing all 5 factions
but seeing multiple 16-17kt warships so early in game breaks all assumptions
especially as naval yards are still around 5-6k for all

That is because every race (even yours) gets a budget to buy ships at the beginning of the game, and ships bought in this way ignore shipyard availability.

Titonian wrong or rather partial info unfortunately
you get twice the yearly productivity of your shipyards if I remember correctly
so if you set zero shipyards - no ships are spawned
problem is with new ships constructed
military ships are constructed in much bigger civilian yards

My first ships I build 2-4 years in are usually 20k tons or larger. I flat out don't like building small ships.

I reiterate, you have no control over what the NPR does. As in zero.  If you want an RP'd space race you will need to play the factions involved.

that what I fear and hoped to not see
I tried to minimize impact by self running shipyards in opening setup with only 1 naval and 1 commercial yards at the start at minimal size and all prespawned ships deleted
unfortunately seeing npr 40kt carrier is a matter of few years only
it looks like like multi nation "humanity to stars" game cant be made with minimal human player influance
and I dont feel I have time, devotion and strenght to run it by hand

Odd, I never knew that NPRs can do whatever they want with civilian yards.

Which I will fix in C# Aurora - no more mystery large ships :)
