    Wow, that's really bad, I run uber settings, 1680x1050 and I rarely drop below 30fps, crazy maps and long games can drop below 25 or so since I updated my drivers a few weeks ago.

    I'll try that particular map and see what happens

    You actually can't, and it's a pain in the arse.

    I agree, I like that it can't reclaim living stuff but trees and wreckage is annoying.

    @jables @tvinita hear our plea

    Any word on a fix for lobbies changing settings when you load a system?

    That actually sounds like a bug. Or an interesting gameplay element, since you can't build teleporter everywhere? I remember complaints about them being to versatile.

    I would like to be able to have the game UI remember settings like setting AI's to Absurd (or have a default difficulty instead of normal, etc) instead of having to do it for each one and having the most recently played system in the sidebar so we don't have to search for it every single time if we want to play it again.

    I think you're doing something wrong if someone builds a teleporter in your base. :p

    No, I mean, build it in the middle of the trees, so the enemy can't put it around your base either.

    Just kidding, I see what you mean. Especially terran planets with their 'forest rings' would be interesting as some form of cover, while tropical planets would get harder to invade. At least until the first fires.

    Not sure how relevant this would be, but it surely sounds cool.

    I was thinking about tree fires when looking at this thread.

    Having forest fires slow down units could open up some awesome strategic moves.

    I believe this was fixed in this latest PTE build. Please get me more info on it if you are still seeing it :)

    Can't wait to try out the new combat fabbers and see if a secret strategy of mine is a bit stronger :)

    I tested the new PTE version on various maps vs the AI . Looking good so far, even on all-water maps. I´m seeing forward to have this in the main build!

    I'm not sure I like Orcas being "Leviathan light" and Narwhalls being "Anti-everything else" I kinda liked the idea of Narwhals being anti-air and Orcas being anti-sub. With both of them being equal against surface targets.
    I do like the idea of the stingray as an anti-orbit weapon. Maybe it could also carry a single anti-nuke missile (with shorter range and greater cost) and replace the naval anti-nuke structure?

    Also, why is the barracuda not stealthy? Isn't that the point of a submarine? And will we get the sub fabricator (and the possibility of hidden underwater buildings) at any point?

    Clear
    Clearly there is a middle ground of not allowing fabricators (of any kind) to reclaim intact hostile structures, or re-allowing construction without reclaiming.

    That's no fun at all though. Bring back Orbital Reclaim!
