Love the Game and updates. This game is a huge investment in time on the larger maps. Ans so:
Thus you need to add an option to allowed the repostioning of a newly aquired tech buildings to the top of the build list with one click. When it is stuck at the bottom of a large planets build list.... it gets old fast moving 8 new factories to the top cuz you need them now! move selected to top or move all of selected type to the top!
When building and or setting up new planets do not allow the game to select specialty tiles for the next highlighted build tile. I cant tell you how many times Ive had to move a computer selected empty tile off an unused farm tile or some or specialty tile .... that I plan to use for a farm later. The game should always choose blank tiles while there are still avialble for the player as the next traget tile for a new building.
Next, when a planet is selected, from any menu.... have the game map engine center the planet in the middle of the screen AND have the planet in question flaged in some very very obvious way. Many times I get lost looking for a desired planet. Put a flashing halo around it for 20 seconds or some such!!!
You want the AI to become harder? Simply have it pull off a full on concetration of forces against the human player at some point.... so many times the AI sends in just enough for the player to deal with. I say strip all planets of but one ship. Flag a rally point and then load up a very solid attack force then move against the player...
Next have the AI target easily killed player troop transport fleets with fast ships. I cant tell you how many times I have flown huge unprotected troop fleets into harms way and the AI just did nothing.....
Next would be adding a new wild card event with a huge invasion of a a totally new race into the map from one of the map edges. Have this race be one of the unpicked AI races. Have the size of this invasion fleet potentially be very large to huge, if the setting is on a harder selection. This would be so cool to deal with at some point in the game... and have this invasion effect diplomacy in a signficant way as the races try and deal with the new threat!!
Thats all for now.....
Love the game and thanks for many hours of amazing game play.
