  Colony homepage links to image
Posted by: wintermute - Less than 1 minute ago - Forum: Game Ideas, Suggestions, and Feedback - No Replies

Just a small idea here. You can add a screenshot to your colony page eg:

https://www.my-colony.com/colonies/PWDm77jG/

And that html template shrinks down the image. Maybe have a link below the image to view it in full size eg:

  Suggestion: an overwrite colony warning.
Posted by: forcedminer - 1 hour ago - Forum: Game Ideas, Suggestions, and Feedback - No Replies

Hi my colony forums!

I recently started a small earth-like colony and its been pretty fun for the most part.
after a while i wanted to check back to my main colony with all the alien tech and independence...only to find trying to load it up opens the small earth-like colonly.

i did ask in the chatbox and i think patchdaddy answered me saying something along the lines that it would overwrite any colony with the same name.


So I'd like to suggest one of two options.

1.) instead of having a colony new name set to "my-colony" it starts off empty
that way a user has to enter a unique name

2.) if a user attempts to have another colony with the same name a warning would prompt them saying it will overwrite a previous colony and suggest they make a new name or overwrite the existing one.


I'm not angry or anything that alien tech one had a horrible.......horrible history of famine and thirst wheres this earth-like one smells of burning wood and has a WALL surrounding it! Big Grin

  Tourism...how does it work?
Posted by: sparticus - 1 hour ago - Forum: General My Colony Discussion - Replies (3)

So I'm a bit confused about tourism; maybe someone can explain how it works for me. In my colony (21,000 population, 27,000 tourists) I've found that my maximum # of tourists fills up rather quickly, and then no new tourists arrive. I left the game overnight with max tourists and my tourist income on the statistics page didn't change at all. I would expect that tourists would come and go, bringing money into my colony on a regular basis. Instead, the max number of tourists arrive, no one leaves, and all my tourist buildings sit there wasting space.

Any idea on how to solve this? I find that if I build a bit of extra tourist space, some of them start leaving and new ones arrive, so I do continue to generate revenue, but eventually it fills up and then I'm stuck again.

Thoughts?

  Can't build Consulate
Posted by: wintermute - Today, 03:48 AM - Forum: General My Colony Discussion - Replies (3)

After the 0.30 patch (windows client) I went to upgrade my consulate but it would not let me. I didn't see the research requirement at first. So I removed my consulate to try to fix what I thought was a bug. After removing it, I'm unable to build it again. I seem to have all the requirements and resources but it isn't an option to build. I tried saving and reloading but that didn't fix it. Anyone else encounter this issue?

  A secret code in game that can be hashed to confirm connection to specific colony
Posted by: Vyryn - Today, 02:33 AM - Forum: Game Ideas, Suggestions, and Feedback - Replies (1)

Discussing Orcinus's my colony bot, the issue of confirming a colony actually belongs to you came up. There currently is no way for someone to externally confirm that a colony belongs to them, especially not in an automate-able way. It occurred to me that if there was a secret code in the game, perhaps veiwable in your stats menu, and a hashing algorithm to externally confirm that a given charter code corresponds to a given secret code, this problem would be solved.
This is no becoming relevant with multiple people creating third party applications designed for my colony users.

  Luxury Crops
Posted by: Blue β - Yesterday, 05:42 PM - Forum: Game Ideas, Suggestions, and Feedback - Replies (4)

I have an idea for specific crops that could provide other materials and/or happiness.  One crop in particular is think is necessary is coffee.  It could be grown in the open air, thus requiring adequate atmosphere to grow it.  The coffee could be harvested to make drinkable coffee to be serverved in a coffee house(which would basically be a pub). Coffee could offer a +50% energy energy boost, making workers work longer. The side effect would be a gradual degradation of health. Tell me what you think of my idea, and what crops you can think of.

  I lost a bunch of items after a Galactic Trade / game client closing - What Can I do?
Posted by: mickginger - Yesterday, 01:57 PM - Forum: Game Tips and FAQs - Replies (1)

I had offered to buy some uranium and ancient artifacts and when I logged in this morning I found the offer was accepted! I was excited because this was the first large amount (1000 artifacts and is large to me, 10,000 uranium) of artifacts I had and could now get my colony out of this huge water problem I'm having. 

Soon after this I had a call come in and when I went back to the game it was a fresh title screen and I had to log-in to a previous save.

Will I eventually get the "gifts" back?
