  2. There is a lot of things that I would love to see pulled in from star sector. Like buildling up a planet. The combat control can use work as well. I would like to be able to have people escort a ship, but go out an immediate attack enemies before they reach the ship. The commands need to be fleshed out. Instead of commands you can have ships have states. I.E they are escorting state, guard state, but then they have AI that determines how they interact with AI; Hunt and Pursue, Attack when only attacked, ignore etc. This way you can have ships escort other ships, but change their state when enemies show up. It seems this and star sector have a lot in common. I would like to see more fleshed out Captain traits and the traits refined, a lot of them seem lackluster and not exciting. There should also be more ways for Captains to gain experience and it not being just using commands. I want to be able to see my fleets stats, cargo holds, and details without having to be in the ship to see them. Its kind of annoying to have to load a sector in order to check out if the cargo is full. Quality of life for mining is control miners from the map. I.E. mine sector and when they need to refine I can move them and refine in a sector that has a resource depot without having to send them on a refine command. More factions and better designed ships for factions. Allow miners to mine and refine, not having to tell them to do one or the other. If the goal is to make people use the commands, just make the commands more lucrative and require escorting more. Most important one, advertise this game more. This game is crazy unique and would love to see it grow.

  3. Estou fazendo essa tradução do Avorion + DLC Black Market. Comecei do zero e sozinho. Está completa e já fiz diversas correções, porém dei uma pausa devido ao lançamento da Nova DLC RIFT que será em agosto. segue em anexo pt_riftV5.po

  4. Ships currently don't seem to have a "dock" option for the strategic view for ship -> ship docking. This makes creating a large ship carrier troublesome - you can press Control + C to get all of your minions seperated, but you can't put them back on easily. If we want to try something like the Family boss fight does, where he has a couple of smaller "fighters" connected to him, it'd be a chore to reattach each and every single one after every small fight (or you'd just avoid deploying them, in which case - what's the point in flying with 5 "minions"). The suggestion is to create a dock command - either simply telling a ship "dock to this ship", or better yet, an ability to specify which dock it's meant to go on. It'd be a lot quicker to box-select, press dock and wait a short while when they reattach, rather than have to take over 5 different ships, fly to the correct spot, switch to the mothership, select the specific ship we're trying to reattach and hold C when it's slowly flying in and docking.

  5. Yes, I too have the problems you describe. Yes, they were present before v1.0 Yes, they are still present in 2.0.9 While client performance certainly drops when many objects are on screen, the problems you're complaining about aren't related to the number of objects, the speed of processors, or the latency of networks. I'm running a server on localhost, giving it 8 (out of 12) threads on a 5600X with 16GB of RAM. The server isn't using those cores much - and there's no way to strain the network on localhost. As for RAM, the client stays under 3GB and the server stays around 2GB. Resource-wise there are zero problems. The problem is clearly a multi-threaded deadlock. If the game had a 'single-threaded' mode that removed all mutexes and semaphores and TCP messaging, I'm sure it would run fine. I'm a C / python / etc programmer. I've written real-time systems with sub millisecond timing requirements. I've also done plenty of batch processing, API request processing... etc. Game programming is harder than all that. I think I've met two programmers in my entire life who had the chops to code a multithreaded game engine. Both of them make more money than any game company could pay. Multithreaded code is rare because deadlocks are very very hard to figure out. I've known quite a few decent programmers, and many very good ones. Almost none have the chops for games. In fact I'd say that if we confined the set of game-programmers to people capable of writing multiplayer engines, we would never see a real-time 4x space game. We'd be stuck with single threaded space games, because the top tier multithreaded multiplayer engines aren't simulating any part of the world where players aren't present. Lets take a tour. Elite Dangerous - Had roughly $1.8 million in funding. IMO the best space game available - also multiplayer. Last I checked it still has connection problems where you just get booted and can't log back in until the servers get rebooted. Is that a multithreading problem, a networking problem or a database problem? Don't know but it wouldn't surprise me. Star Citizen - $300 million (according to wikipedia). Unreleased even after 7 years. X - ALL SINGLEPLAYER. First 3 games were single threaded. First multithreaded game ("Rebirth") took years of development and released missing tons of expected features from previous games AND was super buggy for years. Egosoft even skipped numbering for it and launched their 5th game as "X4 Foundations" to convince their fans that they've re-implemented lost features that defined the first 3 games. Stellaris - Largely single threaded. Can't handle a heavily populated medium to large universe because they've coded an NP algorithm to update populations and they can't multithread it (and apparently can't optimize it although one would expect memoization would work well enough). World of Warcraft - Single threaded, Used TCP - lost packets would freeze the game. I had a Linksys router with a firmware bug that occasionally, but reliably miscalculated a tiny fraction of TCP checksums. WoW was unplayable because one lost packet and you lost control. Skyrim - primarily single threaded, zero networking, shipped without optimizations, a user noticed this and made a mod that restored like 20% performance by inlining just a few of the most important tiny function calls. I don't recall how many months (but multiple patches) later it they turned on optimization in a patch. The volume of fixes in 3rd party patches dwarf Bethesda's officially released patches. But enough of that - lets find out how much harder it is to write a multi-threaded program that actually uses concurrency without introducing deadlocks: If you have the problem and the chops, then whip out wireshark and a debugger and identify the source of the deadlock. I've seen entire codebases scrapped and rewritten from scratch because these problems are very tough to identify. Good luck, a lot of people will be very happy if you succeed.

  6. This has been an error since color palette translation was implemented. About a few months. The reference where the translation is specified is 'data/rgb.txt:' However, 'data/rgb.txt:' does not have a translation tag ' " " t _ x '.
