Just out of curiosity...
« on: June 11, 2014, 04:04:00 PM »
Is there a reason that there is no hostile action that allows the player to recapture the remnants of the Hydral planet? IIRC it is a veritable science outpost in its own right and thus would be a regarding target?

To offset this gain an influence/attitude penalty could be imposed on the player and or sympathetic races (either once or continuously), along the lines of "Fear that Hydral is onto something" - "Those guys are scheming with the Hydral"  etc....

Thoughts?
Dev comments ;)?

Mainly it's a matter of the hydral not having the manpower to defend an entire planet.  The goons can defend minor outposts, but that's about it.  That said... something is coming up in Betrayal Mode where you can indeed capture both planets and that, and have fleets of your own as well. :)
