First of all, I saw a thread that said something about grav, grav planets and grav farming. What are these? I thought they meant the research, but I didn’t think you could “farm” research?
we are talking about the research here basicly to get grav tech it dosnet require any mins to do it but you need a one hell of a a lot of energy avalible for it . Most people will pick a planet that is out of the way or something to biuld up power plants and build a 6000 to 10000 solar sats on .
term i had used grav farming was people who look for people trying to gain the power to start the reseach destroying all the solor says for all the crystal thay can pocket.
Can planets be destroyed, or buildings on them? I mean… can I lose a planet if someone attacks it enough? Can I lose a planet at all?
no a planet can not be destroyed nore can any of there biuldigs othere than defences like lasers and such. only way to destroy a planet is to do it yourself .
Moons on othere hands can be destroyed but only with a RIP aka deathstar and even that not garentyed theres good chance you can loose both or just the deathstar trying to destroy a moon.
What are the advantages of setting aside a seperate planet for, say, research, or fleet building?
well no real big one othere than some planets arnt really big and till you can get some biger ones a specialzed one can help. plus if you going be haveing lot mins on hand if u can set a side a plant to do major biulding or research away from prying probes . you can usealy keep the mins long anough not to loose them .
How exactly does combat work? In the battles I’ve seen, weaker ships, in numbers, do not seem to stand up to fewer, but more powerful ships? Why is this, and does it mean you should only focus fleet construction on the most powerful ships?
well not sure the pure math on it but mass light fighters can take out batleships you just have to have anough them that there total power is more than the total shields with anough to spare to damge the hulls anough befor the Battleships can take them out. basicly it takes about 13 to 14 light fighters to take out a BS’s .
For building defence, what is a good strategy? And I assume defence is more powerful for the resource cost than fleet?
well way i see it best stragy is have a good mix of all ground defence go heve on the cheap stuff as they usealy first things hit when a plantet is attacked more you have gives yoor big guns more time to destroy ships . you dont have aways have anought to wipe out the attacking fleet though that is nice you will make anyone who is any good in the game think twice iy your defences withh hurt them anough to loose more in resorces from ships losses than thay will recover for attacking you .
