    [K-G09] A bigger digger

    Location: G09 Tags: Land vehicle A follow up to the new discovery Yes, that one will work much better. We will unearth this thing in no time. No you wont. In fact, if you get all the way down this mount I will make sure you get a massive bonus. You heard her! Get diging! Of course only the tractor is to be judged. More pictures in the spoiler.

    [O - E03] Desert Storm

    Nice use of the Nexo Knight armor but I was expecting a "Dessert Storm"

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    We already have plans for an exponential reward so better builds should be properly rewarded the first time. We also mean to limit publication so you can't (or don't have to) post every week. I think that's a better way and of course there is noting stooping you from reusing old builds (you just don't get anything for it). I remember Pombe used the same briefing room a lot in the beginning and I even made the hoverbike from "scouting land and sea" digital in "the discovery" for the story alone. I think the biggest problem now is that we all are tiered but don't want to quit so we make the lest amount of work to get our points. Basically, the game have gone on for too long and we need a break (and some new rules) Which we are getting soon.

    [K-A04] Finally cracked

    Location: A04 Tags: Spaceship, Exploration On a Dust Demo ship on Mynderis. This story continues right after the second part of Reporting in so the inside scenes are the same and should not be judged. Wait! She had armor on! Maybe she survived the explosion. Raven could be alive! No, no. The autopsy report we stole say the armor at most made her die slower. She was probably in agony for several minutes before finally passing away. Good, good. But I still want some kind of prof. Find that armor, or even better, the coffin she was spaced in. Some time later they locate and retrieve the helmet. Then comes an unexpected announcement. We have finally cracked it! What? The data we got from Raven’s computer. We managed to decrypt it. Anything good? Huum, lets see… It look like she didn’t keep anything personal on her work computer. We have travel logs, schedules and appointment logs. Here's a company finance record. Oh, she had over 2500 credits… That spoiled rich bitch. It look like she didn’t buy much. There’s only one purchase here. A Raven model love bot? Woo. Talk about narcissism. She probably had it made so she could get one herself. She also owned an apartment in the Kobayasi tower. According to the travel logs she didn’t use it much. She spent a weekend there before the attack. I want to buy that apartment… and trash it. Don’t you think you are obsessing too much about this? She’s dead. Forget her and get on with your life. Lets see how much it cost. I might have to use MANTIS founds but it will be worth it. Please stop. This have gone on long enough. You need help. It’s not for sale! Kawashita still owns it. Why aren’t they selling it!? Relax. I’m sure there’s a… What if she’s still alive? She could be living in a luxurious apartment right under my nose. Laughing at me! Now you are overreacting... No! Send a spy over there immediately I must know.

    Transformers: Generation Brick

    Can't beive I haven't comented on this before. All of them are really cool but I most like the small ones (Nightbeat, Sideswip and Prowl especially). And the head on Siren look so good. You should try north (tecnicaly geografically central) Sweden (but at least the sky is clear the few hours the sun is up)

    AG already have an alien register in the travellers-guide-to-andromeda, feel free to add any aliens you create. I was planing to flesh out the aliens Narbilu created early in the game, maybe you could use one of them? I'm looking forward to reading your ideas. Maybe for AG2 we could have a wiki but with Bob's nice player index and timeline there might be little use for it. And if you get tired of waiting on AG2 to start you could introduse some aliens now. I'll check with Bob if we could impliment the aliens stealing resources thing in the current game (and make anyone with Alien communication immune )

    [K-G09] The new discovery

    Here are a few more pictures (I have like one hour of daylight here this time of year) I also added a story. It turned out to be a lot more than I had initially planed. And previous random character turned out to work exceptionally well. (lets say I planed it all )

    [K-G09] The new discovery

    Location: G09 Tags: Exploration, Land vehicle Now it's time to see what Raven found last week. (if anyone remember that build, it kind of got lost) The new discovery How's the excavation going? It's slow but steady. We have taken it easy so not to damage the structure. Well, you can bring a larger machine and speed it up. I have it from a reliable source that this structure is a lot sturdier than it look and there is nothing of archeological value around it. What kind of source, everything about this is Omega level classified. Half of my mission specifications where censored. I have a personal connection to security chef Derrek Thorne. He's put me in charge of sec... You know Derrek Thorne? That Derrek Thorne? The Sergeant who got promoted after all the hush hush with Raven and the missing scout ship? How do you even know about that. I have a Delta level security clearance. That's how I got this job in the first place. Seriously, what's so secret about a stone ruin anyway? It's much more that that, obviously. But having clearance is still no reason to why you would dig around in classified files. I could have you arrested right now unless you have a very good explanation. One of the soldiers on that mission was my sister. Summers... a painful memory wash over Raven and she look away. You are Marie Summers. Yes but who are you? How do you know about my sister? Those mission rapports where classified higher then Omega level. I have only managed to get access to secondary rapports. Like records of Raven canceling the first team and requesting Thorne's team instead. So how could you know my sister was on that mission, and what's this “personal relation” you have with captain Thorne? As I said, I know Thorne and his team but I don't know any more than you. He lost a good team in an alien attack on a scout ship. Now Ms Summers, I'm truly sorry for your loss but if you keep digging in this I'll have you court marshalled. Do you understand. Yes Ma'am. And that's exactly what Thorne said too. ---- The speeder is from last week, I just wanted to recreate the look of the first discovery. Here is the entire build. I don't know if it's apparent but there is a lot of angles here to work around the six sided building. I'll take some more pictures tomorrow (and maybe add a little story too).

    [K-G09] An important find

    Location: G09 Tags: Land vehicle, Exploration Raven was on her way back to Orinshi to reunite with her family when she got a call from her security adviser Derrek Thorne. An important find We have found one more. Another key? No, an energy signature. On G09. G09 uh. Whoever made those sure liked symmetry. I'm on my way. Later on Greater Drigo. As she fly thru the landscape she calls the excavation team. How's work going? We have uncovered the anomaly and is clearing the last mud now. This picture is not actually meant to be judged as it will be shown better next week. It (and the speeder) is a hint to what have been found. And the cover story? Kawashita just started a major expedition to the planet that should keep Octan from looking too closely on us and as soon as equipment arrive we set up a mining station and constrict a building around this thing. Great. I'll bee there in 15 minutes. Are the markings the same as the other one? Those files are classified so I wouldn't know. I guess I see when I arrive then.

    [K-G09] The new discovery

    There is already a link in the post to the first discovery (on Lesser Direstan. The last week Raven commented on symmetry. I wonder what could be on F02 Lesser Drigo ) Much like DLL, I too planed a lot of story in the beginning but it never really got anywhere (untill now?).

    [O - G10] Skeletons in the Closet

    Nice story. I like those ods better then the original even if they are still way higher then in reallity. (but then a planet had just been destroyed so it make sense if asteroids where denser then) I figured the masked assailant was Jeb (but he changed his hair color). Now the big question is if he kept questioning his orders and joined Octan out of guilt or if Octan's best (only) special force agent is a sleeper agent for an anti-Andromeda assassination agency

    AG - Kawashita Group Dojo

    Kawashita is researching the ancient art of Alcemy (maybe we should try making gold into lead as it seems to be a lot harder to find in Andromeda ) We are also researching Alien communication (as soon as it's posted).

    AG - Introduction and Discussion

    The Idea was to make a final sprint to end AG1 (another option was to continue the race in AG2 by carying over the resources but we feelt it was better to start AG2 fresh which will make this end a little rough)

    [K-A04] Shield Liger

    Cool mech/alien and NPU on the spaceship. (now I have to nag on the location. Mynderis is A04 while A06 is Guivevere)
  16. EpsilonEta

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    One idea we had was for aliens to steal resorces from the companies with domination on the planet. This would also make it tactical for players to do alien builds sometimes. It could even be implimented in AG1 if there is interest in that.

    [K-C10] Snow

    Location: C10 Tags: Land vehicle We (in northern/central Sweden) got our first snow a few days ago. This was earlier than other years but still not as early as it used to be (I blame global warming) Anyway, I made a snowmobile. I actually started with wheels, then added the skies. When it started looking like a snowmobile I changed the wheels for threads. Still not happy but now I'm really out of time. (oh, and Raven's story is in here somewhere too )

    [K-C10] Snow

    I tried to get a fig in there during building but it didnt look good so I went with a slightly different scale . At least stering and seat look beter then if they where designed for a fig I know right, had to use really small parts. could I get an exploration tag for it

    [O-H03] Crofter's ridge to Kaalin

    You have to select only one location (and please add it in the top of the post too) And AG1 won't end untill the next year at least.

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    To Pombe I'd like to say; the way to improve from where you are would be to try making something higher than a 4 (feel free to take a few weeks off while you build) Also, step out of your comfort zone and build something other than a land vehicle (or even better, don't include a vehicle or building at all, you could focus on terrain. Stop helping Octan so much. It's not like I would but a small land vehicle in the snow just to score 3 free domination points.) No really, it's great to know AG have helped people to improve but it's a shame that 4 points is about optimal score per effort as it doesn't motivate players to improve beyond that. And those who are that good don't get that much for actually showing it, which otherwise would inspier more players to try harder. We will try to adress this in AG2.

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    Who said the new techs would even give bonus to tags/specific builds? It could upgrade the fleet, make it easier to hold territory or just make any build earn more secret resources. Maybe you even have to choose between two techs that give effects to progress (like most non effect techs now) or buy both and progres slower. There is a lot to be done with techs but we haven't really goten to that yet.
  22. EpsilonEta

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    Thanks for all the feedback! And some people haven't worked at all for their items. At least it would be the earned credits that caried over but that would put new player behind from the start. (maybe 10% could carry over. I don't know. Staf will have a lot to talk about at least) I'm no expert on forms but I would assume you click on a link, enter your builds name, location and a link to the thread and then tick a few radio buttons for tags. Each tag could than also have an explanation to them. What rules tie you too hard to the company? I would like the game to be very open to new ideas. You should be able to ally with the aliens but you could also rebell at your company from the inside. The main differance would be if you give your scores to Mantis or Aliens (or Kawashita. You know you can change faction. They woulden't mind a talanted builder, just saing ) We will go over the game balance and try to make a large territory managable even with relativly few players. Bases is also a good ide to consider. I think a limit to the number of items and changing your equipment betwwen builds would make the game too complicated and with individual credits it will take a while to get items anyway. 1 - Well, drivers, pilots and explorers have tags to use and credits could be sent to those who best use it so it work kind of good now but in AG2 we will adjust it. We havent started on equipment yet as we wantet to have the job classes and game mechanics done first but if you want to brainstorm then go ahead. Also the new tag system will give you a personal bonus to anything you like to build. (after X spaceship builds you get a bonus for ships) 2 - This is just a thaught that poped up in my head and would probably not work but if Octan won they could be an allmighty presence in AG2 and a new or doughter company take their place in the game. We will reward resources on an exponential scale. The question is by how much. Score^2 would probably be too mush as each increase would give twice as much but two scores higer doubeling your reward might work. This is also something to discuss. We want to reward good builds but not make inexperienced builders worthless. If DP was kept linear then small builds could still help maintain control of dominated planets. There are a lot of options to concider. The build limmit is ment o be a fixed number within a time period (as in max 3 every month) to force people to skip weeks once in a while. They could then build something bigger for next week or something else altogether, not focusing on AG all the time. It depends on what credits are supposed to be. Now they have been a company resource to be distributed on players who then fell they have to work up to pay this dept. We want it to be more of an individual reward. It would be kind of cool to have a kind of wild west style where numeros companies with diferent styles and aligence fight for riches in andromeda but I have no on how to make that work. On the other hand, we have already seen diviations from the company styles in the past. Pombe invented the black Octan ships and most Kawashita use dark red instead of regular red (even mantis had e short period of white and pink ). You could even invent a daughter company with alternat colors and maybe others join in. I think the changes to tags will adress that but feel free to elaborate. Yes, we just need to decide on just how exponential. (see above) @Kodan Black and @spacer steve by limiting it to 2 tags per build you can't "tick ALL the boxes" and will have to focus on the thing you want to build. You can still put in more things but you shoulden't fell you had to. Also, the new game mecanics allow for more diverse techs. We havent discussed this yet but I think an early one would be to slow DP degreas so you could hold a larger territory for less effort. The fleet could also be upgraded in several ways. One good sugestion was to make it prevent DP loss in it's area. The new tech sould not limit what you could build, only how effective it is. Just make sure that Octan build half as mush as they do now and the game will last twice as long (an Kawashita have a chans of catching up)

    AG2 will folow after AG1 story wise so if you chose to continue the same character only your credits and items will be reset. (But anyone could also finnish up their stories and make a new character for AG2, even in another corporation)
  24. EpsilonEta

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    @goliath, we had planed mini challanges similar to the events you mention. Aliens are as numerus as there are players building them. Even with our limited alien players (which we try to adress now) we have got several different sentient species and very few are "evil". If anything its the humans invading andromeda who are evil and its natural that some aliens will fight back. Becase of the infinit possibilities of aliens they will all be grouped together as one and share a simple tech tree but items (which will be made for aliens too) will be individual. Aliens will also add to a comon domination on each planet and therefor compeat for planets in the same way corporations do (maybe with adjusted mechanichs and we are considering "diplomacy" or similar to get less hurt by alien presence. Details not finalised)

    Future of AG - It's feedback time!

    It's very good to hear your opinions and discuss things. As the CEO and team strategist in Kawashita I often get the question of where someone should put their builds. That is hard to know without seeing it first (possible tags, guessed score etc) sometime someone dont ask and post on the "wrong" planet and I may ask them to move. To me it would be a lot easier if they would tag there buildings with what they thaught important (location or job bonus) and tag the rest as optional so I could fill it in myself. It would not be a burden to me and I think it would be a kind of win win situation (especialy for those strategists that dont have moderator rights) @kodan black, 5, the new system with droping DP will ensure the need to build on planet that have already been dominated. Even long before its about to run out. 6, that is already the case. I have fetured only Ravens family and Pombe have a large team that sometimes act alone. I may be wrong but that rule have never been particularly enforced, as long as your main cast is fetured. (But sometimes I just make a random speceship. Don't tell the judges )
