Ima not sure I like how tec need 6 logistics slots per lab while the other races only need 4... not sure where that came from. if it was all 6 that makes sence... but the other races getting 3 labs for the logistics of 2... i dont know...
it comes from the fact that the TEC can get another 10 logistic slots added on to its planets
well advent can add quite a few tactical slots... but i dont see their repair bays taking up more slots. (right?)
in order to get that research... you need 6 (right?) civic research stations... thats 36 slots... and what happens if you get stuck with crappy planets... its catch 22... I need slots... but i need a shizzload of slots to get those slots.
well, you all are not done balancing... so whatever... Its just that by the time you can get the devlopment mandate research... your either already won... or you have lost (prolly because you spent so much money compared to the other races on logistic slots)
I mean... lets do soem thinking... broadcast centers do alot in your mod... +50% allegence... for early game... this is simply awsome... waaay more awsome than trade ports... and can pust on enemy allegence.... as they are currently... in competitive play... you will find that broadcast centers are REQUIRED, and required early.
advent can get broadcast centers with 8 logistical slots... and illum spam with 12 more logistical slots...
it takes tec 18 logistical slots for broadcast centers... to counter the 1337 advent broadcast centers... and then another 18 slots to even have a hope of defeating the advent illum spam.
20 slots vs 36. for labs only. add in 1 boadcast center... and thats 22 slots for advent and 40 for tec...
whatever... like you said... yoru not done balancing yet.
Edit: herm... we should do a few 1v1's just for fun, and to see how well everything works out. one of you going to be on sometime today?
