  • Custom SE effects

    Hi, new user here,

    I've recently edited alpha.txt to change the SE effects. I was wondering what people would think about the new settings. Note that this is intended for single player. Stats that are different from standard are in bold.

    Police State: +2 POLICE, +2 SUPPORT, -2 EFFICIENCY
    Democratic: +2 GROWTH, +2 EFFICIENCY, -3 POLICE
    Fundamentalist: +2 PROBE, +1 MORALE, -2 RESEARCH

    Free Market: +1 ECONOMY, +1 GROWTH, -2 SUPPORT
    Planned: +2 SUPPORT, +1 INDUSTRY, -2 EFFICIENCY
    Green: +2 PLANET, +1 EFFICIENCY, -1 INDUSTRY

    Wealth: +1 ECONOMY, +1 INDUSTRY, -3 PLANET
    Knowledge: +1 TALENT, +1 RESEARCH, -2 PROBE
    Power: +2 MORALE, +1 POLICE, -2 GROWTH

    Cybernetic: +2 RESEARCH, +2 EFFICIENCY, +2 PLANET, -3 TALENT
    Eudaimonia: +2 ECONOMY, +2 INDUSTRY, +2 GROWTH, -3 MORALE
    Thought Control: +2 POLICE, +2 PROBE, +2 MORALE, -3 SUPPORT

    One thing you might notice is that early- and mid-game pop-booming is all but impossible using the standard factions (demo+free market+creche+golden age necessary). This is on purpose.

    Play-testing has shown them to be reasonable enough settings (Yang+PS+Planned+Wealth is a little overpowered maybe).

    So, does anyone have any comments to make?

      What does the talent thing do?
      +N talent gives N additional talents to each base (or more precisely, upgrades N times citizens in each base). Applied before any other effects.

      -N talents gives N extra drones in each base, applied before any other effects.

      So, any comments, especially balance-wise?

        I would have to play test games to judge the balance correctly.

        At a glance it looks quite good. Yang might be a bit too strong as you said. Some factions will be able to GA-boom easily (Lal) whlie other can't do it at all. Since Ga-booms are the only way to boom (Eudaimonia doesn't count) the HGP is likely the most powerful secret project with your settings. It might be a good idea to make the future societies avalable (much) earlier on the tech tree.
