Title: New Building: Foundry
Post by: Matt on November 02, 2009, 06:07:38 PM
Just added today is a new building called Foundry. For each level constructed your build times for each unit are reduced by half. See the wiki (http://http://bluefroggaming.com/starfleet_commander/wiki/index.php5?title=Foundry) for details.

ohhhh very pretty... I want one.  :-)

Only question that popped in my head right now would be the effects of the new building are for that planet ONLY it is on.  So it will reduce the building times for the planet its on correct and not EVERY planet.

Definitely. When you can build Athenas in an hour you'll love it.

Very much worth it.  And I have the 300 plus field planet I know where to put it.  My one day "new" homeworld.  ;-)  

I still feel bad for the bozos that continue to probe and sometimes launch attacks on my old homeworld.  Silly rabbits.

This new feature further widens the gap out between the people at the top and the people who are newer to the game.  Any upcoming features going to help balance things out again aside from group attacks?

Valid question. The player still has to have the resources to build the ships, but it does speed up the process for someone who can afford it.

That's exactly my point, though.  A top player has the best ships.  A top player can go run around attacking people to accelerate the rate they acquire resources and therefore they can afford to build ships at a faster rate than newer players, further widening out the gap between those at the top and everyone else.

Yeah.  New feature is called quit.  You can always try dip, but you wont gain, just fall further behind.

Try quitting.  Then you wont have to worry about it.

well,  we are a'holes if we complain about people in dip.  a'holes if we attack anyone not in dip.  

So why not try a new approach and just tell em to quit.  Haven't been called an a'hole fo rthat one yet.

And the 500 threads about boohoo he attacked me is not spam?

honestly, I don't like empire but if  people make a thread complaining about an attack, they need to grow a pair.  recovering is a part of the game just as much as attacking.
