Make sensors cumulative, so some AWACS or Sentry ships can be built that really see far and watch borders for intruders or invasion fleets.
Sensors are cumulative.
GC2 just has a hard cap at 15pc for sensor range, and since Eyes of the Universe gives you +10 and multiplies your total by 1.2, you hit it with practically everything.
Removing the sensor cap has already been suggested, but it's good to see more approval for that idea.
Ground combat like the old Star General, which was based on the old Panzer General. Objectives to conquer, great to see a planet being conquered by your forces, if they are enough. Or seeing your ground invasion forces defeated by a strong defense.
I don't get this. It's Galactic Civilizations. I don't want to watch every single battle-either on a planet or in space. And I damned well don't want to have to order my units around any more than I already have to (with regards to ships; at present there is no ground combat ordering to be done).
Maybe I'm alone in that, though.
Stealth and carriers have been discussed numerous times...if you have specific ideas, feel free to share them. I haven't spent a lot of time thinking about either, so I personally don't. But it's something we can hope for.
