Please list here your suggestions of what should be added to the Stars! - Must Know section. What is still missing, or what is that important it should be there?

Of course I'll not be adding the entire help file. Wink

No bugs/features in this thread, please use the other one for those nasty buggers.

mch,
modaw

Deal Init is capped at 63.

Deal Sometimes Stars! fails to gen under Wine but gens normally under Windows.



So many Stars, so few Missiles!

In space no one can hear you scheme! Deal

Deal The "Estimated Fuel Usage" number that Stars! displays is often wrong, estimating higher usages than actually happen. This is particularly grievous in the early stages of the game, where most ships are light, carry little fuel, and cannot refuel easily. Hit Computer

An exact formula exists, as seen in this old Academy thread.

The tool itself is currently hosted at: http://craebild.dk/hab_range_tool/fuelusage.html

I'd like to see the list of MT part descriptions in the Must Know so that it is easier to find. The search function appears to be down right now and the closest I came to finding the thread was a very old one that was moved from "MT part details" or some title very similar to that.


One out of five dentists recommends occasional random executions to keep the peasants cowed and servile.

That's a good one, I recenlty heared about a toy available in a game I'm in and I went looking for info myself, it wasn't very easy to find.

There are some versions, the one that BlueTurbit posted, but also for example the one by Walter Pullen (1997) at that the wiki is using ... my preference would be to use the same as the wiki ... I'll have a look though, tactics and strategies might have changed ...

I did find ours shortly after making the previous post and bumped it to the top, but having all the build costs as the wiki does is nice.

Something else worth putting in the must know section would be the mechanics of tech trading and details on how ship transfers work (CE and UR, for example, and how you can't build transferred designs and such).

Edit: And I found myself looking through the battle orders again, trying to figure out a way to win an unwinnable fight. No luck, looks like I have to send reinforcements instead of tricks. But the bit you wrote on how the different battle orders work wouldn't be a bad thing to have there either.
