Jodookus Posted July 27, 2008 Report Share Posted July 27, 2008 Pete, I have a few questions about the first two notes you put at the beginning of turns this turn cycle. You said:  Stable Wormhole Generator links can be used by anyone, not just you and your allies. The WG description mentioned that Total Allies could use your links, but made no mention of enemies or unknown aliens. They can, and the description has been updated accordingly. You should take care to defend your networks or they could become compromised by enemy ships. Though the link itself remains in the database forever, if the WG on either end does not happen to exist at the instant the jump occurs (destroyed, or more likely, dismantled), the link will not function until both sides have powered WG's. Dismantling, using and later reconstructing is one way to ensure the safety of your network. Another way would be to defend key positions in the web. For anyone who has attained Stable Wormhole Construction, will you send them the updated ANZ? Is this technically feasible? Or would we be required to 're-ANZ' this item?  Universal Gates currently use a simplified system of item loss that does not take into account the true distance between the Gates. This was never the intended mechanic, which will see some changes fairly soon. Once upgraded, you will no longer need to inform me of new Gate construction, and will be able to transfer items from any Universal Gate to any other so long as both sides have an active Gate. Item loss will be based on true distance between the stars involved, with a minimum loss for in-system transfers. Losses could potentially reach catastrophic levels, including 100% losses, for very long transfers. Distance will be calculated by raw distance and not warp jumps. Will you define what you mean when you say "will see some changes fairly soon"? Will this happen next turn? Will it be in two turns? Knowing will give those of us on a budget to plan ahead to issue orders that modify/cancel material transfer standing orders. JD Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
