So I guess if your gonna play as the VL and want to have one superweapon per planet, you may seriously pay for it in the end.... hehehe.
But again, if one is playing in VL "death fleet" mode and doesn't own any planets, or only one or two at any given time, this kinda defeats the super weapon being able to target you..... or at least can make it very difficult to find you if your always on the move..... In theory, if it's an FFA game, the AI might be so busy shooting at each other, a VL player could move in after and pick at the remains...
OK, the map I made in galaxy forge last night is designed for a Vicious 6 player FFA "death fleet" game..... basically 5 big systems for the other races, and a little one to get my fleet started. I gave myself something 25,000 credits and 10,000 resources (each) to get a fast start.... but I didn't cheat, I gave the other players the same amount... so everyone can get going.
The idea is to set all the other races to Vicious, then see if I can make a true roaming Death-Fleet really work. Once I get moving, to only own one planet at a time to replenish my fleet, then strip it to the core and move on, and see if I can survive.
So as long as I'm making it a real nasty FFA, for now I might as well set the cannons back to one per planet and really up the stakes.... bwaahahahaha
