We need a part that will add population to a ship.

 

My tholian space city has a crew of 1200.  Which may be enough to operate the ship,  But what about the 1,000,000 plus residents of these cities. 

 

Also there should be some way to have them produce some income.  Your not going to live in a space city and not pay taxes.

 

I put this thread in because I didn't want my suggestion to get lost in the official thread.

he thought I was talking about the torians or whatever. When I was talking about the Tholians of star trek


Props for defending a detractor to someone appearing to defend you. A balky forum day prevented me from getting into this thead sooner. I wanted to go on record supporting both the masses-in-jewelry request for GC2 and the notion that GC3 should support off-planet "productive" populations.

Re the jewelry, because I'm a big-map fan, I almost never zoom in to the low-level map. But if I could see art that evoked the teeming masses on a custom ship a-la Iain Banks Culture novels, I would take a few more close looks.

Re "produce some income," I'm on record in other threads as wishing that off-planet assets could do this, but I don't expect anything before GC3. After GC3, I'll be prepared to scoff ferociously if planets are required rather than optional for a player civilization.

Tholian is star trek not galciv


In that case, I'm sorry for misrepresenting you.

Kudos for making a Star Trek race work in GalCiv.

Anyway, it still really bothers me when people blatantly misspell things where they have only seen it written down. It's understandable that, after hearing a word, say 'hearing', one misspells it because they don't know how ('heering')...

...but a word that you have LEARNED from in print? If you've seen a mission in GalCiv with the title, 'Death of the Korx', how can you POSSIBLY spell it 'Knox'?!

Excuse me from digressing. I concur: it would be cool to have off-planet taxable population. Unfortunately, ToTa is on feature lock, and you can't, erm, mod in a new mechanic

Thanks for understanding, Danielost,

I may have misspelled a word but I have not referred to any galciv 2 races in this thread.


For future reference. The Tholians are the ones that spin the web, I forget the name of the episode.
