MK I units are not cost effective though :(

In this case they are.

In terms of time they are the most cost effective unit by far for this game though.

I can't afford the time to go back to my homeworld for reinforcements after every system I take.

Yes, throwing away ship caps worth of Mk I units like this it wasteful of resources but with how out of wack this game is, it's the best strategy I've found so far.

probably won't help you now, but I think to best custom unit for this would be the neinzul commando since it's so fast and cheap to build and ideal for killing defenses.

Hmmmm.

Good point, Neinzul units of any sort seem tailor made for this.

Might be my next experiment game with 3.701

My avatar's a character from the Touhou Project named Flandre Scarlet.

The specific picture in my avatar is from the Bad Apple music video which can be found here on Youtube.

Her pose from my avatar colored.

Her character page on Touhou Wiki.

I can't claim to have created any of this myself, all I did was resize the clip from the video to fit as my avatar.

There's a Touhou thread in the offtopic section here if you want to know more.

And yes, the Touhou games are still second in time played for me, first being AI War of course.  ;D

That's actually very cool, I play bullet hell games myself. Why don't you pop on IRC and join Lance and I for our next game this week?

I'd love to, but I doubt my schedule is going to let me hook up with you guys.

I'm only really available Monday and Tuesday evenings, Wed/Thur/Fri/Sat are right out and Sundays are iffy.

My schedule will open up next summer, going to start looking at getting multiplayer games in then.

Limited time is fine, as long as it's somewhat consistent. I don't mind a couple game nights a week. Anyway, when you're ready, join up on IRC.
