Random Resource Spawing??
« on: October 18, 2013, 01:07:31 AM »
I cant find any information about this on the Wiki, and after a year of playing I am finally curious enough to ask.

I always notice a HUGE amount of resources occupying an empty planet slot within 20 or 30 solar systems of mine. Usually there is a good 150 million resources.

Why would those resources be there? Is it a destroyed Heph, or is it a random spawn?

Thanks

Most likely a destroyed NPC, in particular a Large Enemy Fleet, which can be finished off in one hit plus two cargo runs.

I thought destroying NPCs does not product debris?

Oh, is that still true in Uni2?  I thought all universes had gone to NPCs leaving debris.  Random debris spawning is not (supposed to be) part of the game.

Am i the only one who has noticed this?

I could be wrong, but I think whenever I have attacked a NPC, debris was never generated. Despite that, these debris fields are in an unoccupied planet spot not near a NPC. I going to see if I can find one and post it on here for you to look at.

NPCs create debris when their ships are destroyed. We do not have any sort of random debris field spawning in the game.

Matt,
I appreciate you chiming in on this. I don't know why I assumed that the NPCs didnt generate debris. Did it used to be that way in the past?

Upon browsing my galaxy i noticed several empty planet slots with big amounts of debris, but in each case they were right next to an NPC. That must it.

Thanks!

It did, although I wasn't able to find the announcement when it changed specifically for U2.  Roughly a year ago? Perhaps shortly after you joined?

I think Uni2 changed to NPCs generate debris at around the same time as X2 did. SFCO was last to get it, as I recall.
