Do the laws of the Universe not apply?
« on: November 01, 2009, 03:36:35 AM »
Hydrogen is one of the most common elements in the Universe - it's the major component of water, yet it is one of the most difficult elements to come across or manufacture in Starfleet Commander.
The Devs of SC did complete Physics or Chemistry 101, right?
I'm beginning to wonder, judging from the way they have set up the game...

Hey JJ,

I like the fact I am spending all this time building a Galactic Empire for four of my friends and our 3000 robots and androids.

We really just like the cool ships :)

Isn't tritium rather rare and quite useful for fusion?

Yes and it constantly decays into helium so keeping any useful stockpile is quite expensive. We decided not to decay your hydrogen stores until we build space Zeppelins so you can use the helium too  ;)

Space Zeppelins seem rather dangerous... to yourself. A good kamikaze ship :D

What they fail to understand is that it is realistic in the context of the game.

We generally choose to make the game fun and balanced over realistic. We like realism where applicable, but you can't realistically model future space-themed warfare, and even if you could you definitely could not do it in a Facebook game. It would be a fool's errand to try.

True, and it's a game after all. Aside from the fact that web-based games are much limited compared to desktop games.

They sure are. Future versions of Flash may change that by allowing access to the graphics card.
