Hatred of miners
« on: February 16, 2011, 07:18:37 AM »
Has anybody found a planet with the resources and mineral type things that they need badly but have it destroyed?

I was scouting out a on a x map (which i placed my base poorly in) and found a planet about 4 jumps away from my home planet containing all the resources I needed to get a huge offensive going. I attempted to take the planet 3 times on different occasions but failed each time due to AI and enclave attacks on my planets. After i stabilized my situation a bit I was fully prepared to take the system. Then I looked at the alerts box that tells you when miners and such are happening and see that the planet was going to be destroyed in 3 seconds. (I almost never paid attention to the alerts cause I'm always busy dealing with the ai attacks.) I got to watch as the planet i was going to claim as a prize got blown up along with 3 other planets separating my home planet from the ai. The miners screwed me over badly.

(I'm still playing this game cause it proves a challenge.)  :'(

You can turn off miners in the AI Options box, along with a host of other minor factions to tailor suit the game to your playstyle.
Options are deadly.... :O :O :O

What Entrenched Homperson said. They are an optional part of the game for this very reason. If you don't like them, turn them off.
