Is there a way to report players? There's this one absolute tosser in my turn-based game that's been logging in but not doing anything. The last week we have had maybe 8 turns...

I just started playing with some friends, and cannot work out how to enter alliances. Do you have to be in scanning range? Any help would be appreciated!

Two Questions:

1. Is there any existing lore that I should be aware of and read regarding the history of races aside from each ones description in the game?

2. Does anybody have any tips for what typical RP should be like in a game? I'm not new to RP but new to it in a game like this.

Try reading some of these.  http://forum.ironhelmet.com/c/triton/role-playing 
There may be others in the forum.  

I once RP as Pando 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pando_(tree) 
My clones were establishing a root network across the stars, hunting down invasive species in the galaxy.  I was using nitrous miracle grow, sharpening my farming machinery, gifting potted plants to my favored allies, .  
I have a ridiculous style.  LOL  My enemies got scared of my high ship count, and targeted me, and one of my minor allies backstabbed me.

hrmm, I do test for range before allowing a jump. Must be a bug somewhere. I will see if I can fix soon!

Do you think the AI was a tad bit desperate?  http://i.imgur.com/bpVIMIi.png

What are the rules regarding AI trading? Specifically, how does your standing affect trading?

I think this has come up a few times and has evolved. Search for the latest post about the AI trading.

If I'm looking at a star's natural resource amount, is there any way to predict how much infrastructure will cost on that planet? Say a planet with N.R. 48.

Search old posts there had been formulas explained before. I believe there is a spreadsheet that can calculate it for you.

Hello, newb here with a question not about game mechnics but about player termiolgy. A player just asked to trade a science for Terra or exp. I would prefer to be 100% sure what he means before responding. So what does Terra and exp mean?

Hey All, I've recently started playing again after taking a hiatus, and I'm liking the new changes.  I had a couple of questions though. 

1) In a game where anonymity is set to the highest, how does one give renown points?  We played until the end, and then decided to let the obvious winner take first and the rest of us conceded in order.  I went back in to distribute the renown points and there wasn't an option.

2) I notice now that there is a badge for those that have won a 64 player game.  I won one of them last summer.  Is the badge awarded automatically or is it purchased?  If it is awarded automatically, anyone know if I can get one retroactively?  Not a huge deal...really just want bragging rights.  :)

Not to be a pest, but was hoping to hear from +Jay Kyburz about this.  Still hoping to get the badge.

This is a comparison of my opponent and I who are dualing it out over first place in a game he is actually really good at this game but the numbers just are harsh and there can't be victory for him...

Hi! Is there any way to remove the password (make public) a game that was created with it? The rationale is to let friends join the game (created with password) and then make the game public after a day or two to fill the empty spots. Is this possible?

By the way we prefer European players because it's a turns-based game and waiting for the one US player to move at 3am is quite annoying (avoiding that is the reason we create them with password in the first place).

Do you think experimentation is a good research for the beginning? I've always favored it or weapons, what do you think?

Although it depends on the set up and conditions, mostly always experimentation or banking are great choices

So the new AI... do they ever attack unprovoked?

I believe they get a -1 in attitude to the current winning player, making them hostile to you if you are winning, and attack on sight. Kind of a weird mechanic imho, but there you go.

Need a question answered urgently. Just created a game with a production cycle of 16 ticks instead of the usual 24 ticks. How will Experimentation be affected in this case? Will Experimentation contribute the 72/144/etc.. research points to your chosen research every 16 ticks or 24 ticks ?

"Science
Upgrading science increases the rate at which you gain technological advances. For each point of science you have you will generate one research point towards your chosen technology."

Is it at all possible to adjust game settings once it's started? I apparently didn't set the galaxy to dark, but there's no way I'm going to be able to wrangle 24 of my friends again to restart.

So the previous poster deleted his post regarding the combat mechanics. I was enjoying the conversation. I believeI missed some replies. Can we pick this up again?
What is everyone's experience at learning how combat maths work?

Why thank you sir. It would be interesting to hear other's experience with discovering how the mechanics work, good examples or explanations.

Just joined up and got a game started right away, and I am already loving it. I absolutely loved how quickly people started talking and working together. I think I am going to love this game for a long time!

Well I wouldn't say outwitting your opponent is so much dishonorable as much as it is apart of the Game. ;)
