    Not playing in Draco, but in Andromeda, so to answer your question from what i know, no. You have a percentage chance of finding something. I forget the order, but you can find out if a planet has been explored and how much. The more you explore, the harder it becomes to find anything.

    What would you do?

    Build stuff.
  3. Here is an corrected image of the formula. I saw an error and fixed it.
  4. Now, If you are going to to build a table or similar, this is where VLOOKUP and HLOOKUP come in. I have not the time to explain thru keyboard how to do that. One way I learned was to copy what others in thier work and incorporated it into my sheet. I was lucky to have a job that required me to use Excel so I was able to apply what I learned at home and at work. I made a character sheet for robotech. I will shit you not I spent at least 3 months writing and formatting and fixing errors. Great learning experience.
  5. Here is what I threw into Excel real quick.
  6. This is not something that can be easily explained thru a post. I know it sounds rude, but there are great guides on the internet to explain things. one thing i do notice, you need to be awa red e of order of operations. Without a correct amount of parentheses, you risk dividing your whole formula by 100.

    You what with ICE? Missing some commas and periods. Are you infering that you were able to send ICE thru a player made wormhole(Wormhole Generator)? I have never bothered testing. What about Universal Gates?

    Returning Player Questions for Draco

    What about the SCM stat? Is that a factor at all or has it been bumped up to be more effective like GCM?

    Colonial attrition

    Find planets that mirror you homeworld. Growth rates will be really high when you drop enuff installations to maintain 1 to 100 rate.

    Colonial attrition

    In an email from Pete many years ago, he stated each facility effected a certain variable. So a domed city and a subterranean city, each effect a different variable, even though you would think each would effect the same. I think the verbage in the csv are just fluff. The only one that seems to really mater is the pmap.

    Only person negatively affecting your gameplay is you. Maybe instead of rants and accusations, send an email to Pete informing him of what anomaly occured on your turn.
