IMO remaking the GUI for the aircrafts design (maybe also for the rest), should get into the next stable release, it is really a game breaker.

Huh. That new little picture on the start screen - is it random, or is it a hint that we might be getting native livestock as another possible food source at some point?

If I recall correctly, when aliens came out we had a big monster and when air forces came out we had an airplane. No idea what the motorcycle of the last set of betas might represent.

I'm wondering why there aren't any ammo factories that allow us to produce ammo more 'efficiently' than with the workshop.

In my recent game, I came to exactly the same conclusion! :) +1 for the suggestion!

I kinda like the system as it is. It cuts down on the MM and yet is still dependent on the factories built.

Game/Map generation still gives me trouble:

Map below is the result of
- unclassified planet
- medium size
- "spread out"
- city state start
- quick planet gen

* 6 major nations in the upper left quadrant of the map, 1 minor nation between, rest of the map empty.
* Map is -35°C, but is said to have "cloud forest" as main vegetation?
* shows desert zone at the equator ... why - if there is any rainfall, its at the equator?

2nd try:

-same map settings

* i started near the equator, 4 majors are started strung up along the lower map edge, 1 at the upper edge, 22 minors fairly spread out.
* planet should have winter/summer only with 33°C const. in the torpics, -11°C ... 5°C in the artics; yet, I am sitting a bit below the equator at 40°C, neighbouring hex is 42°C.
* strangely, the open water hexes are nearer to the equator than to the poles ...

In my opinion, most games could use a better map generator.

@Arralen, You are correct that some of the information and geography is hard to reconcile with our expectations of an alien planetology. But in my experience, the maps plays well enough, even in my 1.09 version. I would go further and say the generator actually works quite well, seen purely in game terms. It may seem unrealistic sometimes, but it consistently generates interesting and playable maps.

(low-key bump for a 'Sphere' update)

Some people do it, but most just put it over there.

Also the 1.10.04(b) is now the live version anyway.

Thank you very much for the update Vic.
Shadow Empire is without a doubt one of my favorite games of all time.
I'm curious if this is (update 1.10.06) what you meant to fix (better AI) in your snippet #31. If so, will the next update be Oceans and Maritime Trade Houses without playable naval units? Or now that the AI ​​problem is fixed, do you plan to put everything in one package and release the Oceans and Maritime Trade Houses along with the playable naval units in one update? From already thank you very much!

I'm getting an end turn game crash in the 1.10.07. There is no exception thrown, no error, no stack trace, the application just closes when a player ends the turn - it goes into AI calculations and then crashes.

I've sent you a save file via mail.
