From now on, defense requires energy.
Defense can be disconnected from the battle on a page Resources.

Until the whole defense is built, you can turn it off to save it. This is a small plus of this change. At the OPS captured by pirates and on the special planets, the defense does not require energy.

The consumption is arranged according to the principle: 1 energy for every 10 defense points (minimum 1), for Tosses -  for every 2.5 points.

Shield dome needs more energy.

In agreement with the balance editor, the consumption of Moles is 3.

We introduced the concept of medium orbit.
The low orbit is intended for the appearance of fleets at the coordinates and the high orbit is intended for the appearance of satellites.

!!! Enter the defense, if the energy is not enough for all
The control energy of all the defense units is summed up. The percentage P of the remaining energy at the facility as a percentage of this total control energy is calculated. The number of units from each group of defence units is entered to a maximum of P% of the number of these units.

Do you mean that defense consume energy when OPS captured by human being player, and it does not, when OPS is still under control of non-playing character (NPC, bot, pirate)?
Special planets = All first planets of arms [X:1:1] - is that what you mean? Why it is not written in the description here https://xcraft.net/special_planets/

How can you respect others if you don't respect yourself? Can you respect a little the players? My strong neighbour and a friend left the game just because of changes.

Have you consider all the aspects?

Have you inform any player before implement those changes? (even your friends)

Do you want send away players and close this project?

STOP thinking of us (players) only as wallets, we are hummans , with life, programme/routine and cannot withstand constant changes for the worst.

DO you belive that defences should require power?   do it the correct way =>

- inform community of planed changes (observe whoo many will stop playing)
- increase (find a way) the power output (by introducing new power generators?)
- give to all orbital stractures the phisical ability to collect sun power (todays technology and for the last 30+ years support it in real life)
- give the ability (as is in real life) to stop production to increase energy reserves during combat

REMEMBER  we are paying for fun / recreation / relax,   we are not payed to play but pay to play , we have rights and you need us to continue working.

Dear Xcraft team, many thanks for informing us about so important change so quickly AFTER you have implemented this feature, so everybody already know about it anyway...
Is it true, that this game was bought by some american guy who just wants to piss russian players and close this project? Because steps you are making are aimed exactly to such end.

Slimer if that is so it may explain some things, although no changes here have ever been beneficial to the game.
Regardless, waking up to a 7000+ energy deficit on most of my planets, after the Jumpgate and Gravity trampoline issues is the last straw for me. Lately the 'Balance Updates' have come thick and fast....like a nail-gun with the safety off.


 Players of Xcraft seem to be punished for investing, not rewarded. No matter how much time or money is spent, the rewards for that investment are ALWAYS negated at some time in the future, or those rewards are offset by a game update such as this. That is the equivalent of a Supermarket consistently and dramatically raising prices for lower and lower quality products. Its a shame, because this game has been a lot of fun in the past, and there were lots of people here to play alongside and enjoy the game with. It isn't that way now and no-one I know is happy with any recent change.. and plenty are leaving after years of playing. I may join them. Good luck on the squeeze admin... people are getting over it.

Where was our vote on this? where was our notice before this happened? If you want continued support, you might want to start at least giving us warning before making game changing decisions like this. How was this a balance issue? you just made it harder for new players to protect themselves to develop, this makes all of us op everything and have to fix the energy problems to even produce resources to play... this was a joke and money grab. stuff like this is what is driving away players that donate. How many players are you going to loose before you listen and give us a voice in this stupidity you call balance editing?!? We did not need or want this change!
