Yeah, Steve's back! Does that mean that 1.12 is imminent?

How exactly would an Imperium Ship be designed in Aurora?

Would you use a bunch of plasma cannonades to represent Marco-Cannon broadsides?

I imagine you'd have to dramatically buff industry and resources in order to make the massive ships used in the setting.

Steve's ships all use railguns.

In all the games I tried so far (I'm still waiting for 1.12 for the next major one) I had severe gallicite problems, so I can relate.
I might even go so far as saying there's not enough gallicite generated by the game, but maybe I've just been unlucky....

Anwyay, the Lords of Terra should be... less confrontational with the Tarellians for now I'd say  ;D

I hope we will find out what kind of ruins is in Canis Minoris, that Necron fleet is massive. It seems that Artemis is infested with Orks (Rakhas), never encountered them before so I would like to see that battle as well.

You're encountering a lot of Necrons, I've explored 80 or 90 systems in my game without finding any, what determines if they spawn or not?

Also that's quite a convoluted galactic map, are you thinking of making any changes to the map based on this?

It would be funny if you could repurpose the captured Necron flotilla as a covert raiding group.

It would be the perfect disguise, then BOOM!

I like that some brazen civilian colony ships just went out and decided to populate some recovered ruins on their own.

Almost makes me wish that we had an option to turn on civilian colonization efforts - autonomous groups that drop down infrastructure and civilians on various worlds in explored space.

Using civilian contracts to automate infrastructure shipping is a good approximation.

The fuel harvester will need a lot of micro management. In my opinion, it would help to make some changes so fuel harvesters always fill up in a year or longer to minimise micro. Awesome campaign Steve! :)

Those are NPR designs and the AI doesn't care about micromanagement and seem to need unloading every 6 months which isn't too bad. But since they have a refuelling module, NPR combat ships probably just visit them to top up when they need it.

Eventually, the Lords of Terra decided the tiny colony of 50,000 was not worth a war with the Tarellians. The colonists were ordered to destroy the tracking station on the planet and scatter into the cold, desert-like terrain. There was some resistance to the plan, but it was carried out as ordered once the colonists realised the Imperium would not come to their aid.

Hmmm... does this mean the colonists are still there, or are still there but with no infrastructure so they slowly die off?  Because I can see the Imperium doing that too!

The NPR does not care, no. But Steve will and it makes more sense IMO to design things as if they care about micro.
