So, how many fighters can I fit into the hanger? One per level, two, more?

One level of Hangar can cover 80 points of fleet. A Fighter is valued at 1.3 points, meaning each level of Hangar can cover ~60 Fighters. For 1000 Fighters one would need level 16+ Hangar, without accounting for other ships like cargo and recyclers. You can see details at FAS page, accessible from Overview.

I need between 1k to 5k fighters. With that small amout of fighters, will all those fit in the hanger?

Relying strictly on Hangars may work for 1k, but with larger fleet it would be not feasible. On that level, it is better to start investing in defense to protect fleet and resources, or develop a habit of “saving” them manually when you leave the game for several hours or more.

How will that affect transferring ownership of alliance Temples and PPS?

If you mean leaving an object and then colonizing it by an ally, it will require only 1 hour.

I used like 40 lurkers to colonize last planet, until I got 300+ fields. It took few days, I still have real life, sure. If I have to slow this approach down by 1 hour, or by 3-4 or 8 during my normal shift at work... (yes, RL), colonizing a planet and getting "quality" extends to months.

I don't see any value in messing with free planets either, but can't help with that.

who was playing with energy consumption and production of terran this morning?

I see no changes in base values for terran production in last month. Please check Ally network and other possible dynamic modifiers.

In near future, capturing enemy stations and asteroids won't be instantaneous after the battle: it will require holding the capturing fleet at target object for at least 24 hours. Capturing fleet will enter holding mode after destroying object's defenders. Other holding features will also apply.
Several allied fleets would be able to stay at the same object. After the first successful capture, all other fleets will fly back.
For satellites with teleportation (space station/Entity), their movement abilities will be disabled during capture process, including the hold time of capturing fleet.

Colonizing free planets will also require holding, at least for 1 hour. With longer stay time, the “quality of planetary base” (i.e. building field count) will increase slightly. If a fleet is already holding at that planet, all other fleet will turn back (as if the planet was already colonized).

Quests that require colonization won't be affected.

you have an opportunity to have a vote in the topic here

Since the vote options in that topic aren't autotranslated, here's what they say (just in case someone may need it):
«ЗА изменение полномочий НТ» => in favor of changing People's Tribune powers
«ЗА изменение полномочий глав альянсов» => in favor of changing alliance leaders' powers
«ЗА возможность выхода из политики» => in favor of having an option to exclude oneself from politics
«ПРОТИВ всех представленных изменений» => against all presented changes

Topic: Announce: Jump gate changes | 3 December 2020 19:24
Message #26
Good news:

Gate interface will be moved to dedicated page, with better navigation and messaging.
- Unified interface for viewing, performing jumps and changing settings (for Gate owners).
- Links to Gates in list for quicker navigation.
- Ability to hide closed Gates from list and other small improvements.

A new mechanism for setting personal access rights will be added instead of current crutch.
- Right now, the only way to personally alter access to Gates involves using ignore list in PM. Since this mechanics is not really related to Gates, we will remove it, adding proper “allow/deny” lists.
- Personal access rights will work separately for each gate and each direction.
- Temporary access changes are also considered.

Bad news:

Jumping through any Gates will require Vespene, which would be taken from jumping fleet's cargo. Jump to any distance will use a standard fuel consumption value (listed in unit's description for each unit).

Jumping to Gates of inactive players will be forbidden.

I know how I send my safe fleets out.

We don't argue with that. I see a lot of your fleets that were sent to expedition with 999-hour hold. But also several of them with 24-hour hold, including the one you mentioned.

Quote: hunts
the front end application had a glitch and went with the default 24 hour time frame

If that's the problem, we would like to know how can we reproduce it, so we can fix that.

Quote: hunts
What would be a good fix is simply default to 999 and let us change it from there.

Some players still use expeditions for their original purpose (finding random things), and longer expedition hold time also means more fuel consumption, so I don't see the highest value as a good default for everyone.
Maybe as a user setting it will be fine.

Show me your logs

I'm afraid it's not possible, since they are for internal use only. I can cite some non-public info about your fleets (like time of arrival, carried resources etc) to you in private, if you wish to verify that we keep information about them.

this is a nightly or mostly nightly fleet that I send on 999 expeditions

That particular fleet was sent with 24-hour hold time, as seen in our logs as well as in the screenshot you provided. Since 24 hours is a default hold time, it looks like you forgot to set your usual 999-hour hold time before you sent that fleet.

It's unfortunate that you got a bad outcome from expedition lottery the moment you made a misstep, but it's not a bug on our side.

Deployed in trial mode (collisions happen, but fleets deal and take zero damage).

Marsman, seems like when “Inaccuracy” of the device is bigger than 100%, it can deal “negative” damage, increasing target's signal level.

Update: fleet's “strength” was reduced (it's now total basic armor, not actual armor).
