TA Rebel Testing results
1. Suggestion: Name for colonization techs should be [planet type] markets. That fits more with their philosophy and differentiates from TEC techs.
2. Tarleton's Superior Weapons ability doesn't match its description.
3. TEC Rebels should have better relations with TA. It's at -10 when it should be IMO -5 or greater.
Other matters.
1. Is Waterworld Supposed to have orbital defenses? Just surprised me because nothing in the description lead me to believe it was an ancient type planet.
2. What is the Asteroids' ability that I see a graphic for?
3. I saw some pirates set up around the planet but they didn't colonize it.
4. Pirates should have the new graphic effects IMO.

Sorry for the slow testing. I've been pulled in a variety of directions these past few weeks.

Same. I will try to have Norlamin Rebels game done within 24 hours but I already see a serious bug with the Jelmi leveling that I have to figure out what's going on.

Replicator Loyalist testing results
1. Is it correct that the Solaris anti-matter is only for making Hords?
2. On the right hand card when hovering the cursor next to a planet the bombers' icon doesn't show.
3. The Helleria Plasma Bomb ability mentions overcharge when there's no overcharge type ability.
4. Interlocked coverage is inconsistent with description
5. When constructing an orbital thumper, the damage changed from 157 to 156 and some of the thumpers have different damage values.
6. Suggestion: Phase jumps ought to be either Red like the Vasari or maybe even purple.
7. Neural attack should have a more visible particle effect
8. Dominion's capture research ability doesn't match ability nor does it have a particle effect.
9. Question: can the Replicator AI ever turn off Disable Engine?

1. When (a lot of) my forces are in a neutral well and the pirates colonize, is their base supposed to be able to jump away?

Hi JurisDocta,

As always thanks for the feedback ...

1. Yes
2. Will look into it
3. Will look into it
4. Will look into it
5. Controlled by the game or possibly as a result of interaction with an ability
6. Not sure why ... I seem to remember trying to vary them for each race
7. Possibly, currently it is audio only
8. Capture is limited to structures without shields ... so that they can't capture dreadnought factories. I might expand the structures they can capture though
9. Are you referring to the starbase?

1. Yes, some of the pirate structures can move and jump ... but very slowly

JurisDocta Sep 1 2014, 2:51pm replied:

1. But how much anti-matter is really needed to make a Hord?
6. They look similar for the new races
9. Yes

1. Hord generation could probably be just time triggered
6. Thanks ... its been too long since I last looked. Will look into it
9. I could have the AI's Starbase engines enabled. The AI will have them off all the time. The reason I have this ability is that a human player can position (or re-position) a Starbase at a critical defense point and not have it wander off ...

9. Perhaps de-sync the cooldown time by a few seconds so an AI Solarus could re-position itself if needed. Just a thought.

Speaking of Pirates, were you trying to copy the mothership from Homeworld? The tall one? Just asking

All of the pirate ships are based on Hiigaran ship models. Which suits perfectly imo if you think about their reliance on salvage corvettes (HW1).. :-P
