That's the Son'a stretching mechanic at work right there.
Either that or you're compensating for something

I love playing this mod but lately some issues been bugging me. For some reason some races randomly will never equip warp drives the entire game but crank out hundred and hundreds of ships that just sit in there starting system. I've conquered some races and ended up with 800+ ships of all kinds including all military but none of them will have warp drives. I always start my games in prewarp. I thought it was just independants that became full fledged playable AI race but this last game the Romulans had thousands of ships with no warp drive even though they had a few different star systems and for some reason there economy was 3 times that of all the other economies put together. I had 29 races at start. They had +50% of galactic economy in the victory conditions and the game had just started practically.

One more issue is the Quantum Torpedo will never get picked over the basic torpedo when I do auto upgrade design. So every time I upgrade my designs with that button I have to manually remove them and re add my quantum torpedos. Also and more importantly doesn't this mean the AI will never equip quantum torpedo's on there ships? I even made them slightly better to see if they would get equipped but they still didn't. What governs what component gets added by the AI? I'd like to fix this so the AI can get some good torpedo's. The templates only list torpedo's so I'm guess the calculation for quantum torpedo's makes it seem lower dmg than basic torpedo's still. I'm gonna test it with extreme dmg value's for quantum and see what happens.

(Edit: Ahh. I see it's the bombard dmg of quantum torpedo's that causes it to be replaced by the basic spatial torpedo no matter how far tech'd quantum is even up to it's top dmg of 67). Does this mean no AI's are using quantum torpedo's though or is there special programming for bombard races that makes it pick it?)

Another issue I was able to fix was for some reason the Advanced Fleet Countermeasures and Advanced Fleet Targeting techs ended up wiping out the bonuses altogether for those components. They both would say 0% after those tech were researched. You can actually see the 0% bonus just finding those techs in the research screen.

I got them back there original intended 35% bonus by going into research.txt and changing the 0 after the first 35 to 35. It seems the #'s 35 and 0 were reversed. Advanced Fleet Countermeasures needs to be 90, 5, 0, 35 and Advanced Fleet Targeting 89, 5, 0, 35.
_____________________

I'm not sure how Economy is calculated for Victory condition. I can never get past 2 - 7% in that victory condition out of 25%. I played as Borg this last time and had 350+ million cash with the build button wanting me to build 2000+ ships at a time and yet the Romulan's which had like 5 colonies the entire game had +50% economy rating from start. I made sure to make all 29 races to prewarp everything for every race in starting game screen.


Sorry for long post but this is only mod I play for DW. It might as well be a Star Trek game cause I never play the original. I just love being in the trek universe with all the characters from tv shows.

Thanks for the fix for transports I never noticed that some races weren't building transports and I've played like 30+ games.
