Where's "my" Super Terminal?
« on: August 02, 2012, 01:42:37 PM »
So Super Terminal doesn't spawn in all maps? I haven't thought about this before but now I noticed all maps don't have Super Terminal. Seen many maps without one recently. Has it always been like that or did some patch change something? Botnet Minor Faction or Spire Archive patches maybe? Has anyone else noticed this? I think Super Terminal is an important part of the game especially on high difficulties.

I think it has always had a chance of not appearing.
If warheads can't solve it, use more warheads.

Looking at the code, I'd guess it was a bit less than 50% chance of being seeded in a particular map (50% due to a random roll, a little less because if the first planet in the randomized list happens to be a homeworld of either side or a core world it won't seed either).

It also only seeds if planet count >= 40.

Ok thanks. So I just didn't pay attention to this before^^  :)
It also only seeds if planet count >= 40.
Also I didn't know this.
