currently it is at 78, but i switched over from government just around 15 turns back, at the time of the tests it was around 61 to 64
What is the calculation there in terms of it having an effect on the roll or difficulty?
The switch btw i did to find out if i could keep feats from different profiles, which seemed possible, later on i read in the manual that aslong one does not fall 10 points below what is needed for a certain stage of a profile you would keep it otherwise you loose it, which seems fine. That surely will be a consideration, when actually planning out a playthrough as then combination of feats may give certain advantages or enable playstyles(?) i may enjoy more. This will need a lot of more testing i guess =)
that may be, i just then stumbled uppon that indicator when i mentioned it here.
I am currious though, how came it to be that usage points are safed up to be accumulated and not directly being converted into xp and therefor skillpoints?
I would guess it is so one could not push a certain skill to the extrem on new staff members and maybe safe up PP for such occations? Though that would seem an extrem way to play it as you would ignore certain opportunities all the time just to safe up PP. Sofar just using them as needed gives a nice sense of accomplishment and immersion.
Or just to reflect a linear learning curve ... linear curve ... that must be it ^^
Then again f.e. in the current game i am a bit in a pickle, either i was not aggressive enough, but all the major players are basicly at war with every minor faction around them and that makes it impossible to make some meaningful plays still with minors like protecting, unification, annexation have become complettly useless it seems for the rest of the game as i have sofar not witnessed that majors would at some point put their sword away again against minors and i am cursed to just be a bystander till they are all gobbled up, which will make ecoing so much harder as those majors gain developed zones while i need to clean house on unaligned lands and then establish new zones and colonize them. Point being, i am hardly using any PPs right now as i don't see much i could do against that. It is also quite clear which of those majors will become the strongest faction and i will try to be friendly with the second strongest faction besides me, though these majors are all theocracies no idear how that would work out. If i would be able to take one as ally to wage war against the bigger one, well we will see =)
anyways i am quite hooked currently by the game *sigh* ... so many games so few time
