Gosh Durned Astrotrains!
« on: November 23, 2013, 12:21:01 PM »


Welp.  There went my entire fleet.

Shortly after my homeworld had an influx of enemy units.

YOU HAVE LOST

Huh?  What killed my force field?  It couldn't have been the spire battle ship...it doesn't have a bonus against heavy.  Oh.  3 million base damage.  Which will never miss a stationary target.

Yep, photon lances are basically weapons with a "x10 vs wot-stays-still" bonus ;)

Yup.

I did get a peek at the protector starship (finally!) though.  Very nifty.
The only problem I have with them is not being able to quickly figure out which module they have built.

Dunno if you have thought of these or not but the quickest ways I can think of would be to select the target Protector and then click CTRLS then go to the ship design tab.  Another would be to go to max zoom in then right click on the unit portrait in the fleet/threat intel bar.
May the Force be with you.

And the Triforce too.  :D

Oh I know about those, but neither one is "quick" ;)
