Seems like some things got deleted in several threads, mainly in the C# Change List, with a "Last edit" date shortly after the original post time when I definitely remember seeing said post long after that.

C# Aurora / Re: Replacing Teams?
« Last post by Dr. Toboggan on Today at 08:09:49 PM »
I personally might request that survey ships be able to carry survey teams around that they automatically drop as part of surveying.  Then they wait for the team to finish, pick em up and move on.

If Steve does implement survey ground units, couldn't you just put the smallest troop bay on your survey ship, then carry a unit around for this?

Because letting the game decide legitimized the amount, accessibility, and location of the minerals, rather than it just being something you make up.

It's a bad idea in the near term for feature creep reasons I think, until Steve at the very least gets a test game going, but in general I would argue this might be nice.

Yeah, it would be really neat if with the right infrastructure you could span one of those super huge systems.

C# Aurora / No Limit on Commander Themes in C# Please
« Last post by Lucifer, the Morning Star on Today at 07:15:42 PM »
So I don't know if I just missed it, but a feature of VB6 Aurora that mildly irritates me is the fact you can only have up to 5 pools of name lists to draw off of.  In my opinion, this is simply not enough to represent a multi-system empire.  Hell, it's not even enough to represent Earth.  Now I know that there is the Nations of Earth theme, but what if I'm going with an alternate scenario? Please, Please let us have more pools to draw off of.

There is. I need to figure out which it is and remove it again.

I also lost the thanks option a while back but didn't say anything because I though you had just gotten rid of it for whatever reason.

FYI I was set to "default" but apparently I was still on the old former core.   I changed my theme to one of the other ones, and then back to default and got the new theme.

It's. . . different, but now I have the "say thanks" option back.

Apparently my 6km/s ion ships were way too slow.
6000 m/s with ion engines (TL3) is not bad at all.

there's no reason not to fully survey every rock
If you are so obsessive that you HAVE TO use geo teams to survey every system completely, down to the last asteroid, then you are obsessive enough to go nuts with something else. I only use teams on bodies that I'm already colonizing or mining or using otherwise. I can't even imagine the OCD required to survey 200+ bodies in the hope of getting more minerals. Why not just use SM to put few million of each TN mineral somewhere and call it a day?
