Introducing - Colony Locations

I dont care if the commonwealths are mixed up. I am just making changes to the distance that a child colony will be placed from its mother colony. With the older settings a child colony could be on the complete opposite side of the map. It now has a tighter radius. Eventually distance between colonies will matter, so I want Commonwealths to be close to each other, unless they join together manually by un-natural means..

If you're talking about the fact that all commonwealths are being mixed up all around United Earth and that you can't really see crowded places at popular commonwealths, then I gotta disappoint you, 'cause that's how odds work.
If you want to make crowded spots at popular commonwealth, then the best option is to let the current independent commonwealths start far away from each other (maybe even in different sectors).

that definitely would be a good idea

I don't think lowering the radius will change much, it will only get spots more crowded, but the commonwealths will get spread the same way around the galaxy.
What I think should be done, is that the radius of a commonwealth should be determined by their size (e.g. GDP, population count, amount of sub-colonies, RRR-Index, or something else). I've made some simulations, and I've discovered that this gives way more beautiful pictures, and it keeps sub-colonies of small commonwealths closer to each other.

As you can see in this picture, the smaller commonwealths like the turqoise one in the right down corner have their sub-colonies close to each other. If you look closely to the bigger commonwealths, you can see that this is the case with them as well. The difference is that the colonies who join later on have a bigger radius to set their colony in. Note how the giant black commonwealth has his colonies spread all over the place, while most of them are still in the middle.
If you compare this to a vast radius, you would get pictures like this;

The bigger commonwealths slowly start to show boundaries, as their vast radius makes the spots more crowded. This isn't that pleasing to look. Bigger problems are the smaller commonwealths; they're almost invisible, and they're divided way too wildly among the galaxy. Lowering boundaries won't help at all, believe me.

Another thing I stumbled upon during these simulations (and another reason to make the radius dependent on the size), is that commonwealths with an unchanged radius will make the galaxy look like this;

While my idea will make the galaxy look like this;

It might look messier, but this feels more like an actual galaxy than the other picture.

The commonwealth radius is already determined by size (population of the motherland), I had already thought of that. United earth (having a huge population) has a big radius.

Just reset the maps again, I have resized the sectors from 500x500 to 2000x2000

accutly i did make payroll and taxes selling water at a 1 per 100 back when all there was the massdirver
avatar
seems like normally theres quite a few people trying to buy stuff like aluminum and harder to get stuff

If this game mirrors reality then there are definately aliens out there pillaging planets for resources and abandoning them.

LOL

Youll never make payroll if your trying to sell water or foor at $1 per

I made a few fortunes on sugar, ant paste, and antium in the last 7 days.

@Blackwolf You can post in the My Colony General Discussion sub forum that you're looking for a commonwealth and see who answers.

Must be a lot f them given the frequency
