Re: PON 2 ?

I agree, even if PON was only a redone GUI. I have to do some windows tweaking just to make the text readable, but the game is pretty solid itself and the support at AGEOD is 2nd to none. If they only updated the graphics and interface I'd be willing to pay for that as this is probebly my favorite g...

The odds are : when you prospect you have only a 25% chance of it actually prospecting and not having to do it next turn. Then when you successful complete th prospecting you only have like a 50% chance of success. so basically .25 x .5 = 12.5% chance of finding something when you prospect. I've pro...

Cool! I'd be very happy to take a look at those and see if I can make some tweeks to make the AI a little smarter on the decision making process for regions.

Thanks a ton McNaughton!!

Aye, havent seen the stars for experience in the last 3 patches that I remember. You can do the mouse over to see the text, though so not that big a deal. I always moused over just to see how close they were anyway, but they did add "flavor" to the unit stats, and I liked them :)

Militancy and revolt risk as well as contentment can be looked at as totally different things, while they can have an effect on eachother. Think of militancy as the amount of people that feel comfortable running around town carrying firearms. It doesnt necessarily mean they hate the way the country ...

Modding AI Decision Making

I was wandering if anyone knows a way to mod the AI"s decision making. At least how they decide what cards to play. Far too many times I see them wasting cards on things that give no benefit, or dont use them when they should. I see them use a colonial merchants probebly the most wasteful, like on t...

To confirm this, I am playing as USA in year 1888, and I believe it was right after or shortly after the patch he was assasinated in my game as well.

I captured 2 Army HQ's allong with 1 cannon and 2 cannons respectively from Spain as USA. I brought them back to Manhattan and added the missing units from my troops to complete the armys. Now, when I mouse of the army it, as usual, says it requires 12 command points. The problem is when I assign th...

The only thin ive noticed so far is that you loose a point of morale every turn now due to war weariness, where I was loosing points to that on a much rarer basis before the patch.

That "late" would be my 2nd guess. I should pay more attention to my expected completion dates to find out. But, if you started those transport ships and no L till 5 turns left, I would think maybe you could cancel the build up until the L appeared in the last 5 turns where it was locked and also yo...

OK, I am venturing my own guess. I'm thinking the "L" means "locked". I'm guessing you don't get the L to start with because you can cancel the build up until it becomes locked. And locked would also mean its locked and cannot move yet. That's only my best guess, if anyone has another or actually kn...

Why does the AI seem to waste cards so much?

I'm wandering why the AI wastes cards so often. You would think it would know that building a certain building has no benefit. I wish I could go in and adjust the decision making process somehow on that. So many times I've seen a country start to build a merchant when the only benefit might be the 5...

Is the sell order actually cancelled (IE in the turn log you get a message as to why the order itself was cancelled). If on the sell line it still has your attempt to sell, but you sell 0 and there is still countries buying the item (check under the "B" screen for that commodity), it can be that oth...

The reason this is important is because you have a limited amount of cards and the only way to build beyond your limited stack of cards is to first build tier 1 and then build all tier 2 cards before you upgrade any of the earlier completed tier 1 buildings. The tier 1 cards go away when tier 2 bec...
