I just noticed that "Modifiers" tab, what's that for?

Work in progress. I am thinking I might show all modifiers that apply to mines, factories, etc. I already have something similar on the Mining tab showing which modifiers apply to (separately) Mines, AM, CMC and orbital mines and their effect on mining rate.

A milestone achieved !

Aurora C# just launched the first new ship from a shipyard as part of the normal construction phase. The ship can't move, shoot anything or use sensors but it does exist (at least until I close the program because saving isn't enabled yet) :)

Even so, this means everything that goes into ship construction in terms of production is now working. All the various modifiers (such as commanders, racial wealth, unrest, radiation, available workers, etc), the resources requirements plus fuel, supplies, ordnance are all accounted for, the crew from the available pool, putting into the correct fleet, changing speeds, etc.. Plus a portion of the construction phase is working; in fact, shipyard tasks (construction, repair, refit and scrapping), shipyard upgrades, industrial production and pop growth are all working properly now.

Getting there slowly but steadily :)

Shipbuilding Changes

I'm using this post as a placeholder to post any shipbuilding changes. So far the changes are:

1) You can't refit a damaged ship.

I am curious as to why you can no longer refit a damaged ship. In the wet navy it was a fairly common practice. Is it an accounting or programming reason?

I guess to force you to fix it first, to avoid player getting "free" repair when refitting.

Yes, that is the reason.

Honestly was it a free repair? I naively assumed the damaged system was junked for no return and the new upgraded system paid for in the refit. If other damaged systems are not replaced but repaired in the refit cannot the cost of their repair be added to the refit? It seems strange to repair a ship then refit it, or are you saying that damaged systems can be replaced in the refit but other damage remain untouched? Which seems fair.

I've just replied to this on another thread where someone made the point it was be unrealistic to repair something before you replaced it. Perhaps it might be better to allow the refit but not repair any damage to components that remain in the new ship. Alternatively I could have a Refit & Repair task which combines the two.

I guess a "refit and repair" would be best. Just have the game repair the ship first in the background, then refit directly. I mean, I know this is Aurora and all, but micro for micro's sake ain't good. :p

I also vote for "refit and repair". The cost being of course the sum of the repair and the refit.

Having to do one then the other is really pointless micro...

Seems like a good idea.

Stupid question incoming : Is it possible to include SOUNDS in the C#Aurora ? You know like units acknowledge orders, warnings about detected missiles etc ?

That would be fun.

I think having to repair the components before refitting them is such a rare case that it's not worth worrying about. I'd just go with whatever was simplest to code, myself  ;)

Steve used to have the ability to play a *.wav file (particular to the officer) whenever an ship with an officer would get a command in SA.  Not sure why he took it out - I always liked it, especially the "By your command" one.
