Re: The new Boundless Sea rebang

Hello Lockon,

Yes, a 10k max population galaxy is a definite possibility. Can you give a brief explanation of what you like most about that setting compared to 25k?

Thanks.

Re: ** Suggested Game Updates/fixes **

-If you can't run fullscreen, then your Windows OS is failing to support the older protocols of DirectX. If it's really slow in full screen mode, it means your Windows and Video Card Driver are packing the image sprites into system RAM rather than VRAM (video ram). This makes it 40 or 50 times slowe...

Re: A totally new way of play.....

I think it's an interesting idea, but it wouldn't be much different from servers currently offered. Probably not enough to justify a new galaxy at this point.

Maybe it's an intermittent problem with your internet connection. Try typing /ping when the problem is happening, and see if you have any packetloss, or if your latency is over 200ms.

Sometimes this can be caused by an input device attached to your computer, such as a joystick, gamepad, or driving wheel. If that's the case you can try either unplugging the device, or making it work with Starport in the Options screen.
