Unable to place Military Command building
« on: June 15, 2015, 09:30:27 PM »
Whenever I try to place my Military Command, the text says that district centers must be 3+ territories apart, and I'm always 1 or 2.

The Military Command is not a district center, is it?  If it is, this is very confusing.  How can I place my Military Command, please?

Hey man! In my game i'm currently fighting like 15 spaceships so I havent gotten around to building these yet, but heres what i read in the patch notes.

"The Coordinated Military Command is now considered a district center. It will be further differentiated later, but basically the idea is that it's more of a "military district" whereas the civic center is more of a civil district."

So as of now, it's just an overpriced district center. Later, it will differentiate regions towards military or civilian if i understand.

As for placing district centers, I believe that it needs to be at least 3 regions away. So, if you control all the regions extending out to the 3rd region, slap down a teleporter, then see if you can start a new district. I'll play around more with it after this war I'm in ;)

You can control all the territories between your centers no problem, but the centers themselves have to be that far apart.  Or there's a bug... ;)

I'm not sure I understand how to distinguish different territories.  All I see are blue lines around some areas.  I did not notice any closed off areas, but I could have just missed it.

What is the right or best way to tell one territory from another, so I know what ones I need to claim to extend out three to build another center or military base?

Possibly different territories need to be more easily distinguishable.  When a player has multiple territories, it seems like it will be difficult to tell them apart. 

Maybe add a territory overlay?

Well, when you hover any tile it says the name of the territory and who owns it and what type it is.  In terms of a territory overlay, that's not a bad idea at all.
