so if you add in new ships, will the computers eventually have them in their fleets? The computer doesn't use your custom ships (as it can't guarantee that you don't make some real stinkers!) but if you come up with some good designs please send them to me and I can put them on the website and mayb...

Re: The repair bot

Joshua wrote:I'm just wondering, How does the repair bot work?
When End Turn is clicked on each repair bot in a ship stands a 1 in 10 chance of repairing something. I put a limit in that only a maximum of 4 repair bots can work each turn to stop people buying dozens of repair bots per ship!

I'll take a look at the code but I don't think the computer cheats at all. The decision to eject or not has a slight random element built in so sometimes enemy ships may seem to eject as if they know what's coming and sometimes they may be stupid and eject too late.

I found it was a lot more fun to have a squadron with you rather than just spend all your money on one super-ship.

People can always cheat by making their own really simple missions - but where's the fun in that?

Sean, you could just save the game before the end of every turn. (And group them into a single file). So when people want to playback, just load up the first save, click end turn automatically. Then load up the second save, etc. Bear in mind thought that each saved file is nearly 1Mb big, so if you...

Then I'd have to check for all the "a"s and replace them with "an"s every time in the mission description text. It's easier just to give all four races names beginning with consonants.

How am I going to figure out that? The Germans?
It's Africans and Asians. All the races needed to begin with a consonant or I'd have ended up with sentences like "find a Amerikon convoy".

I've never seen that happen but if you get that again could you quit the game and email me the file Conquest.gam? Maybe I can figure out what's going wrong from that.

Fusion is right but if you've got a good idea for a new civilian type ship please email it to me and I'll consider adding it to future versions.

you should make a feature that could play back a game so you could see what you looked like. that would be really cool. :D
Yes, that's something I'd love to do! People could email each other their best moments. It's just a matter of finding spare time to do this though.

The most expensive ship that you can buy can only be up to 1/3 of your total money. It's just to stop you from blowing all your money on one mega ship!
