After playing a lot of games in spiral galaxy maps, I found that habitable planet placement (Continental and Marshy swamp)is a very dumb and nonsensical! That is because they are not spread out property and are in close packs.

So my suggestion is to add modifiable galaxy generator txt. file!

Tyrador, I play alot of spiral maps too, but I haven't noticed that issue with planet placement. Maybe I just havnen't noticed it.

A modifiable galaxy map would be immensely cool. I think what we need is the ability to save a map using the editor. The tricky part for the devs would be to make each game start with that map, with each race in their correct starting positions ie, on their own homeworlds.

Strange, every time i play 7x7 map with 700 stars and scarce habitable planets, I get very weird continental planet placement...

You could be right. I haven't played a map that size for a while. I seem to remember something being mentioned a long while back about dispersal of planet types, but I'm not sure.

I have a whole list of things I'd like to have modifiable.

AI Behavior:
AI Military Spending - even though it's there now, the high level is very, very low. I'd like more levels with the highest being one where the AI spends most of it's money on military, saving little.

Other AI Spending - although not as important as military, it'd be nice to be able to mod priority to other the fields (expansion, resource gathering, technology). This would be especially useful if the costs of ship / base parts are allowed to be modded as I request below.

AI Ships - ability to put a blueprint for the AI to follow for individual ship types. Or something of the sort.

AI Negotiations:

Mod how the AI values anything that you can trade as well as wars / sanctions. It would be great if you could change individual paths along with levels (i.e. Some races value military techs more, others energy). If techs become modable, this last part might not be necessary.

Economy:

Ability to mod the cost and maintenance of individual parts.

Ability to mod the base cost of resources.

Technology:

Ability to mod what each tech actually does. In this way, technologies can be changed.

Ability to mod how much each tech is worth for each race.


I think those are all the big ones I'd like to see. It would allow actual mods that change the way the AI and the game plays a bit.

Damn forgot about this master topic,
So some copy pasta:

It would be great to have some "dimensions" control of "displayed ships picture size" in Starmap.
I mean actually I would like to display only small symbols for ships (like triangles, squares, circles, ...) but I can't because if I try to put some 20x20 pixel image, it will be stretched ingame to match some standard ship size.
There is no need to delete this scaling effect (ships get bigger as their hull size increase) but maybe can you allow us to "divide by a number" initial ship sizes?

It would be really great and I would be able to continue total conversion work :)

Thank you anyway for reading,
