Hi !

I played Aurora last time in 2012 i think. . .

Is Quasar "playable" even if in a limited way ? I run it via itchio on Linux without issue, but then i'm lost, i forget how to play, and as it is all WIP, not sure what can be done.

As a lazy returning player, can you point me to recent Let's Play or similar so i can watch/read and maybe learn (on Quasar, not Aurora) ?

Hey, thanks for checking it out!  I would say wait awhile, it's mostly just available in case someone has something specific they want to try, or help out with bug hunting.

Progress Update 2019-11-05:

Ordnance and fighter management were two of the major items still missing from the UI and now they are mostly, if not completely, done!  Specifically:

Fleet Orders bottom row:
- Launch Parasites
- Recover Parasites
- Reload Parasites. 
Fleet Orders > Naval Organization:
- Land Ship
- Land Branch
- Add Parasites
- Add TG Para  (this finishes the naval org tab)
Fighter Squadrons:
- Ordnance column
- Senior commander in squadron
- Reload fighters in squadron  (this finishes the fighter squadrons window)
Ships > Ordnance tab:
- Fast reload from population, colliers, and mothership.
- Fast reload 'Standard' button (Free reload, SM-Only).
- Para MS, Para CO, All Para MS, and All Para CO buttons.  (this finishes the ordnance tab)
Class Design > Ordnance/Fighters tab: 
- Range and Armament columns in Fighter Types list
- Current Preferred Strikegroup
- Delete from strikegroup,
- Double click fighter types list to add to preferred strikegroup
- Sensors column and Second Stage column in the missile Types list  (this finishes the ordnance/fighters tab)
View Technology > Missiles:   
- Second Stage column   (this finishes the missiles tab)

Support has been added for:
- Strikegroups (new fighters start landed on motherships in their assigned strike groups when possible)
- Missile Series (reloading from colony via orders, buttons, or new construction will make use of missile series)

Along the way, I added behaviors to existing features that my older testing scenarios missed:
- any time a ship carrying parasites is detached or transferred to another fleet, the parasites come with it
- ordnance not matching the class loadout is unloaded when reloads occur
- allow recovering and landing parasites from other fleets, automatically transferring them to their mothership's fleet, as long as they are in the same location

Bug dodged:
- don't allow over-filling magazines by substituting larger sized missiles in a series for the missile in the class loadout. No tiny fighters with a hundred size-50 missiles allowed!

A ton of hours went into this update; some of these features are deceptively beefy.  The reload button on the Fighter Squadrons window is pretty neat, for example.  You can have theoretically have every fighter in your empire in one squadron then click reload to reload them all from their respective motherships and colliers wherever possible.  I believe it may be a bit different and possibly more flexible than VB6's behavior.  The Para MS / Para CO buttons are deceptively powerful (and required lots of code) as well. These buttons will do their best to match the selected parasite's loadout across all other siblings, shuffling ammo around as needed to get as close a match as possible.  If the loadout you're trying to match has magazine space to spare it will even use the spare space across other parasites if there is nowhere else to store non-matching ordnance.  Ship-to-ship reload fleet orders have been updated to use the new code as well.

So before this update there were hardly any UI bits left unfinished, and this update finished another couple dozen of them.  I'm really excited to be slowly but surely getting past the mundane features and into the exciting things like conquest of alien populations!  That, and dozens of other big things are still ahead.  Onward!

Yeah, this sounds very involved.  Looking good! I hadn't used some of that functionality before but the inner workings are quite cool.

Progress Update 2019-11-14:

Work on my current goal of conquering alien-controlled planets begins.  The scenario I'm working through is simple: Load up some ground units, drop them on an alien planet, defeat the alien ground units, and take control of the planet.  It's a nice way to discover and address functionality that is missing or bugged along the way.  For example I happened to have alien scouts positioned on the jump point into its home system, which lead to implementing transit detection.  I'm finally at the point where it's time to work on ground combat itself and decided to post an update before heading down that rabbit hole since it's been awhile.

New Mechanics (to Quasar):
 - Worsening diplomatic relationship causes military cooperation level to decrease (e.g. from Neutral to Hostile)
 - Ships detect populations (Thermal and EM)
 - Ships detect hostile transits (Grav, Thermal, and EM)
 - Active sensors detect previously uncharted jump points that have gates
 - Random division morale penalties for being in non-cryo drop pods too long
 - A steady increase in division morale of (100 + Commander.MoraleBonus) / Year to a maximum of 100
 - Switching between different HQs halves morale
 - Hostiles in system cause order delays in inexperienced fleets
 - Inexperience delays are mitigated by Operations and Comms bonuses if fleet's task force is in system
 
More UI elements now functional:
 - F2 > Ground Units tab > Training column
 - F2 > Ground Units tab > Inc Sub checkbox
 - F2 > Ground Units tab > Initiate Ground Combat Against dropdown
 - F2 > Ground Units tab > Attack
 - F2 > Ground Units tab > Ceasefire
 - Fleet Orders > Load/Unload Entire Formation if HQ Selected
 - Ships > Parasites/Cargo/GU Tab: Parasite Ships list, Ground units list
 - Commanders > Show morale deficit next to ground units
 - Tac. Intel > Status of Current Class Members tab: Shields and Thermal columns. 
 - and a new one for Quasar, Settings > Comma Separator

Bug dodged:
- Morale recovery rate can be faster without a commander than with one
Quirk not dodged, for now:
- Can avoid fleet inexperience penalty by 'equalizing fuel supply' etc instead of 'move to'.  Plenty of other options too, like 'Send Message'

Latest build pushed to itch.  A lot of detection was added in this update, as well as quite a few fixes.  I don't usually bother mentioning fixes unless they address an issue someone's reported, but one fix took a considerable chunk of time for this update; While working on inexperienced fleet order delays, I wondered whether it was possible to bypass these by deleting all knowledge of the alien race on the intel window.  Turns out, it isn't, and the alien contacts remain on the System Map named after their database ID.  This required me to do a considerable amount of reworking on my contact code because I had previously been using the table of known alien ships to tie different pieces of intel together into single contacts.

Now it's time to dive into ground combat!  When I worked on weapons, I focused on just one channel of attack (lasers) and one channel of defense (shields) and implemented those to the fullest extent possible, so that ship-to-ship warfare is fully possible as long as you don't mind the limited choices available.  I want to kind of do that with ground combat too, omitting for now anything that isnt strictly necessary for a complete ground war, and fully implementing what can't be omitted.  I *think* this is the last piece needed for core gameplay sans AI -- the fourth X in 4X.  Remind me if there's something I'm forgetting.  Onward!

Can you play a game from start to finish? Just curious as I really like Aurora4x and my main issue with it was turn time and AI that didn't evolve their tactics or ships much (both of which will be changed in c# so that's nice).

The answer to that depends on whether or not you expect AI to be part of your game, both as civilians, and as NPR/spoilers.  AI is still on the todo list and will probably be among, if not the last things completed.

If you plan to control all players yourself, all shipping of any kind, and do not mind that the current build lacks ground combat(that was his last post's stated goal for the next update), then yes, afaik you can play out a pretty much complete game now, so few mechanics remain I can not think of any off hand.

Ah ok. I figured AI wasn't in, but wasn't sure from the last few posts. If he is that far though that is quite the accomplishment. I'm guessing AI is going to be a PITA though.

Hi Kyle, as I do play many times just by myself, are you able to confirm this? Once ground it's done we can play a complete game?

I can't think of any critical mechanics missing other than ground combat and planetary conquest either, but Aurora is so deep there's always something else around the corner.  As you know AI is still missing, and there are a lot of other big features missing that while technically not required, are pretty important, like missiles, point defense, non-laser beam weapons, bombardment, ramming, hostile ship boarding, any sort of diplomacy, ruins, nebula mechanics, political status effects, sync fire, copy combat assignment settings, tech recovery from wrecks and conquered pops, and on and on and on.

The other problem is that I'm still in full-steam-ahead development of new (to quasar) things, doing zero QA other than spot checking new additions as I make them and fixing issues I incidentally happen to run into.  Every feature I add has a chance to break something from a previous update because I don't go back and retest everything else.  So honestly, I would hold off because there will be so many bugs.  I strongly suggest starting a game without AI in Aurora4X instead.  If and when the delays becomes unbearable, send your game to me and I'll convert it to a quasar save file (it just takes one click and 30 seconds for me to do).  Remember, quasar can run ANY existing aurora game.  Also, if you happen to have MS Access, you can stave off the delays in an Aurora non-AI game for a while by setting the ShippingLines.WealthData field to 0 for every new shipping line that appears.

But, important mechanics and numerous bugs aside, yes I would say ground combat and planetary conquest are the final missing pieces for a technically complete 4x game.

Progress 2019-11-22

Ground Combat is done!  (for now).  Go forth and conquer worlds!



Here's an additional scroll-by of capturing a PDC:

Off-Topic: pdc capture • show


Latest build pushed. Here's a fairly complete list of what was added in this update:

- Ships detect shipyards
- Ships detect ground forces
- Hide undetected PDCs from ground units
- Ground Combat damage occurs according to Aurora 7.1 rules, see the logfile posted below
- Commander bonuses are applied to ground combat
- Commanders randomly die or escape the death of their unit
- Commanders have a chance to level up Ground and Morale bonuses
- Ground combat damages political relations
- Units lose or gain morale from ground combat
- Ground units slowly recover readiness over time
- Replacement battalions transfer their readiness to ground units over time at a rate improved by commander morale bonus
- Pop surrenders when no more ground units in PDCs or on the field
- Pops resist surrender if insufficient attacker police strength
- Ships in orbit of surrendered pops also surrender
- Relevant commanders also transferred in a surrender
- Conquering a pop has a chance to recover generic tech based on number of population and research labs
- Wealth is plundered based on conquered pop count
- UI: F2 > Transfer button (transfer population to alien race. It's like conquering, but keeps Imperial status and transfers all generic tech instead of random)

This list is at a somewhat arbitrary level of detail.  Pretty much any mechanic related to the items above should be complete, units under 40 strength refusing to attack for example.  Some items I am saving for later: Bombardment from collateral damage, any associated POW mechanics, negative impacts of Conquered pop status, pop status changes, and spoils from complete annihilation of a race.

Here's the full ground combat log from the battle in the animations above, taken from the Copy Text button.  The attacking force is significantly stronger than the defenses so I could get a reasonably sized log.

Edit: -- actually, see my previous two posts, I ran out of characters --

Phew!  So, where do we go from here?  Bombardment damage from mass drivers and ground war are high on my list but to keep things interesting I may shift gears and focus on something else.  Another item high on my list is the Trans-Newtonian start.  Why?  Because I believe it may involve Design Philosophies, one of the few remaining non-AI features of Aurora I'm not too familiar with.  There is good amount of both randomness and predetermined logic behind design philosophies that is probably going to be a challenge to imitate.  Pre-researched tech is a part of this as well.  Further, these features are a singular prerequisite for all AI of any type.

And speaking of AI, I'm really excited at how close it's getting.  After design philosophies are out of the way, I don't really see anything that would prevent getting started on it if I wanted to.  There are many items still on the to-do list, but I think AI should be possible without them.  For example, bombardment mechanics aren't in place, so any AI developed right now would not factor bombardment into its calculations, not react to being bombarded, and not try to bombard.  But those are all improvements that can be added to an existing AI.  I'm really on the fence on whether I want to give it a shot or wait until more mechanics are implemented.  I'll most likely wait, though, in favor of finishing items that will take a much more predictable amount of time to complete.

I've also been thinking on how I want to roll out the very first AI (which would be a general NPR, not any of the spoiler types).  It will for sure cheat to keep the programming time down.  It shouldn't grow at an unfair rate, but if it does, I'll have it tied to the Difficulty setting so it can be scaled up or down.  Tactics will be crude, about as smart as the ghosts in Pac-Man.  That said, the question is whether to make this first-draft AI public or private.  I know public scripts are popular but hear me out;  I will for sure be doing public scripting.  But what I'm mulling over is whether the mechanics of at least one AI should be kept hidden, to make the game interesting and suspenseful.  One of the major aspects I enjoyed about Aurora 7 is the fear of the unknown.  I have had very little experience dealing with Aurora NPRs and the experiences I did have were quite tense because I had no way of knowing how the AI would behave, no public scripts tempting me to peek at.  I want Q4X to have that same discovery and learning process that can't be spoiled, even by accidental second-hand knowledge from someone else describing what *they* saw in a script file.  It doesn't hurt that the more people interested in playing Quasar, the more free QA testers I have :).  Once the minimal "secret" AI is done, then I would start on a public version, probably less cheaty and less dumb.  The sooner I can get the public scripting mechanics in place, the sooner that community-written AI will be available for *me* to play against :D.  Of course I would continue to work on improving the "secret" AI over time.  Finally, it would make the first-draft AI come out sooner if I don't have to worry about a public API yet.  I'm open to thoughts on any of these ideas. 

I'm also open to thoughts on priorities for the remaining non-AI mechanics to work on.  It doesn't make a difference to me personally which order I add features in, because I'm not going to want to start playing my own campaign until all major features I'm aware of are completed.

So for now, I'll probably go easy on Q4X over the weekend to clear my head, and then it's off to work on more non-AI mechanics!

One thing you should probably fix instead of imitating with Q4X from Aurora is the effect the difficulty percentage has on NPRs. A 200% difficulty NPR has double the industry of the player when discovered but the NPR AI does not understand that, thinking it has 100% difficulty industrial strength. This leads to an NPR that is initially very strong but will run out of minerals soon, leading to a crash and burn. This was discovered a few years back.

Hype for civ shipping AI so I can start my peaceful empire building game :)


Edit: May I humbly request one thing from C# aurora? Max population amounts on system bodies :)
