Greats posts, took me awhile to read 2-4 since I had to get off my lazy rear and go find them... would be helpful to some if someone would edit in there links at the end of original post.  But I cant criticize any thing else.  Good job.

There is no shame in being stupid, after all you can\'t climb a ladder without a bottom rung.

Energy is such a pain. Solar Array and Nuc Plants cost alot. And you cant build satillies cause if you get attacked (WHICH YOU FRIKKIN WILL) they'll get destroyed and screw over your mines. Yet there so bloody cheap. Why cant those things have a weapons system. Or a more powerful weapons system. 30 attack at least.

Have your defenses strong enough to deter form someone coming to wipe your Solar Sats :)

Quote from: "FRACKnCYLON"
As a newbie player who has been playing now for about a week and a half, I have noticed that there is a valid reason to have reactors over satellites - the distance from your star.
Exactly! A "newbie" player has noticed the one reason which you rank > #1000 players don't know! :shock:

The colder your planet is, the more hydro your Hydrogen Sythesizer is making per hour, so you have a lot of Hydro to spare and you can build a Nuclear Power Plant.
The hotter your planet is, the more energy your Helios are producing.

You can find out the temperature of a planet you have on the home page of the planet, you look at the Maximum temperature!

You can find out how much hydro does a Synth make: Production Value = 12 * Level * (1.1^Level) * (-0.002 * max_temp + 1.28)
You can find out how much energy does a Satellite make: Output = ( 0.25 * max_temp ) + 20


The WIKI is your friend!

Like everything in this game, you have a tradeoff. Expensive and safe (solar array) or cheap but vulnerable (sats) or in the middle, but costs hydro to run (nuke). They're balanced.

'xactly!  And because Sats are so cheap, everyone should gaia train slot 15 planets and build 1000 sats on each.  That is if you really want to excel here.  And yes, I am serious.  If only I had this knowledge before I built up my planets.

You're not making any sence at all, you mean build slot 1 planets and THERE put sats, because they have a higher output on hot planets?
I would NEVER put sattelites on cold planets and moons, unless I didn't have anything else to waste my res on, or to add comic effect...

slot 15 gives you more resources than a slot 1.

sure you can get power easier but for long term slot 15's will produce more resources.

such as i have a low slot high slot galaxy hive feeder set up.  low slot gets 27/27/24 high slot gets 24/27/27. the high slots, while being slightly more expensive in terms of powering and construction because of the higher cost for hydro mines and not being able to supplement power from helios. however they more than make up with it by the nearly 20% more in hydro production.

and you can't say oh but field count...15% chance in any slot for a 200+ field count.

And for you slot 15 24/27/27 planets, what level Solar and Nuclear Reactors are you using?  Just curious.  And do you use any satellites at all?  Yes I know that they produce almost nothing but I still use them on my slot 13 and 14 planets to get me over "bumps" when I only need like 30 energy for another mine level.

It was already mentioned that those cold planets being so far away from the star the solar sats produce maybe 7 or 10 units of power as opposed to over 40 if the planet was warmer? Same goes for the solar panels. Trade off for sure.

Solar Arrays do not vary in energy output from either energy tech or planet temperature.

They vary in energy output based on photon input. i KNOW the sats do, Ive tested it. They are worthless when U R in slot 15. And I'm pretty sure the Solar panels do as well but not to as great a degree as the sats.
