Default Wars

In Drox Operative's universe races make wars each other

But what kind of wars? Player will see fleets fighting each others in some massive scale ? Something like 100 ships vs 100 ships, launching nuclear weapons on planets?

You will definitely see them fight each other. It probably will not be 100s of ships at a time though. The races try to make stronger ships instead of more ships.

thanks! I like this idea, seems reasonable! But travelling ships, for example from Zron empire attacking Krin Protectorate.. how do you get notice to player of that? Can player get notice from travelling ships? I mean from the gui

Right now you are told when they go to war. I'm not sure if being told about battles would be cool or get to be too much.

If I'm in zone, maybe using some indicator on screen border, like red arrows.. it's not so cool to get into a war without be warned before

Well just because you are there you wouldn't necessarily be involved in the war. For the most part you will know if one of the races wants to kill you.

go back to this old reply. How you will notify players about this?
A message on screen?

Do you mean if a race wants you killed? If so they will basically declare war on the Drox Operatives. You will see a message to that effect and you will see that on the race screen also.

Maybe you can add a dedicated screen for logs: many times I feel lost in Dop and Din's because there are a lot of info on messages and I can miss it.

this is my idea:



note: you can use it, just credit me :P

So player can filter and navigate througt messages more easily and you can always color messages usign race colors (for example humans blue, Salarian red) and so on.

It's only my need or someone else need it?
