    Lumber/Timber

    I noticed the same thing in one of my other games. Boardwalk was terrific and Mediterranean Avenue was lousy. Every game has good points and bad points

    Sadly, I have moved to the Midwest. But as someone once said, I will be back.

    Lumber/Timber

    I know that it would be far too hard to change but.......every turn I get annoyed by Lumber growing in some forest and a lumber mill converting it into timber! I am from the Pacific Northwest and I can assure you the world is quite the opposite. Timber grows in the forest and is chopped down, taken to a lumber mill where it is converted into lumber (2x4's, 4x4's, plywood, and such). The rules state: Lumber: Raw wood and other forest products in an unfinished form. Lumber is refined into Timber for use in the manufacture of more complex items. (1 ton) 10 Raw Resources Dictionary.com states: Timber Noun- the wood of growing trees suitable for structural uses or the growing trees themselves. Lumber : Noun - timber sawed or split into planks, boards, etc. Is this issue fixable???????

    Returning Player Questions for Draco

    i remain confused. I built some installations that reduce attrition but I get this: 39 population units perish in Population Group # YYYY on XXXXXs - 1 due to colonial attrition. i have reduced attrition but POP is perishing. Are there installations that stop perishing. I only have installations that reduce attrition! Can someone please pontificate on the differences between perishing and attrition!

    Returning Player Questions for Draco

    I know others have whined about this issue before but I didn't pay attention at the time. I just dropped 2000 colonists on a new colony on a Near Ideal Planet and 60 of them died from Attrition! What gives???? 3% losses!! The CSV was: What can I do to stop this attrition or was it one time only thing??? Is the answer that the CSV did warn me about a slight losss of population over time? Therefore I need some textile mills, cities, etc.....?

    Draco Rumours

    I have started a new Draco empire a few months ago, clearly a year after the core of the galaxy got underway. Pete.......What can I expect in the way of rumor reports way out here on the galactic rim? Clearly I will never haves as many ships, larger economy, bigger army, etc... than anyone in the Core. Will I never get a rumor report given my very rural location in the galaxy? Or will I get rumor reports that are indexed to others that started a galaxy about the time I did? What will happen if my success if so vast (as I expect) that I, in fact, get to be bigger than everyone in the CORE. Will I be compared against them or the others in my age group? What will happen in say 5 years if I start a new Draco empire. Still no reports or a report showing my status among others with the same birthday??????

    Beginning Ships

    Has anyone else confirmed this by trying??? I find that I am allowed to enter a Bastian when using the SCRP order but do not wish to wase the order if in fact it won't process. I can find no reference to it not being allowed in the DRACO introducion letters, etc... What is the source of this data? Is it true? Pete....can you confirm this???

    Returning Player Questions for Draco

    Here's and easy question..... I have a ship on a Convoy Run and now wish to move it elsewhere midpoint in the convoy cycle. A. Can I just issue my MOVE, WARP, NM orders and that will automatically cancel the CONV orders it is operating under? Simply put is issiong a MOVE order to my ship a way to move that will never need me to issue the CONV NONE order??? OR B, Nust I order the CONV NONE order first then my MOVE, WAR, NM orders??

    Interesting warp points

    In Draco, I entered a system via. a one way warp point with a single outlet. That outlet turned out to be a one way jump to a system. Two one way jumps in a row! I am Exploring the second system now and perhaps I will uncover a third one way jump!

    Wasted or Useful Research

    Could you elaborate on this?? What techs will it take to build a guards or marine ground force?

    Returning Player Questions for Draco

    I want to build something in the Heavy Cruiser range to go fight the DMX. How many tons is that likely to be? So far I know: frigate........................25,000 tons Heavy Destroyer......81,600 Tons Light Cruiser............224,700 Tons Can any one fill out the rest of this chart with Heavy cruiser, battle cruiser, batttleship, etc... tonnages??

    Draco Alert!

    Two Death Machine fleets of Light Cruisers ambushed one of my pathfinders exploring far from home. Resistance was futile........for now at least. If anyone cares the enemy fleets were KO233-1 & 4. This of course means fleets 2 & 3 &5,6.... are somewhere nearby. The cruisers were carrying system beacons and fusion bombs. I noted no system beacon alerts so it would appear these fleets arrived at the same time I arrived.

    EXPL Results

    Do results tend to decay the more a planet is explored? I.e. Does a ship that tends to have a 50% chance of success when beginning to EXPL a new world, end up with say a 10% chance when the planet has explored heavy exploration? Conversely does it take a much more powerful ship to get the last 50% of the finds where a more simplistic ship might get the first 50% of the treasures?
