  1. I also got the Aeroculture Farm but I'm sure lots of you have popped that one by now.
  2. I'm guessing the standard 100:1 ratio. Means 1 Terraforming Station for every 100 pop.

    Draco Alert!

    I warped into a system I suspected where a DMX minelayer came from this turn with my kitchen sink design. I'm pretty sure I'm right since it encountered 3 fleets of 3 light cruisers for a total of 9 light cruisers. I lost my ship and did some minor damage to two of the CLs. I'm not sure if the large number of CLs are part of the increased activity that Pete hinted at but that system definitely belongs to the DMX......for now. Has anyone else seen a concentration of DMX ships like this? Anything else weird about the DMX since Pete dropped his hint?

    Drone/carrier resupply

    Just the Pop Group number for the TR orders. Too bad there isn't a SUPPly order where you can specify what is to be transferred from one fleet to the other. In the case of fighters, they can just fly from one fleet to the other collocated fleet and you're done. Drones could be a little more problematic. Maybe have the order cost an AP to account for that.

    Drone/carrier resupply

    In all my years of playing SN, I've never really done a lot with drones and fighters. If I had an attack fleet with drones/fighters and a separate bunker fleet with drone racks/fighter bays with spare of each, how do I transfer them to the attack fleet from the bunker fleet?

    Zulu in Draco

    I don't have all my fleets at Zulu. Now, if I'm sending a fleet into DMX space I would consider putting them at Zulu but since the DMX fleets are already at Zulu, I don't need to. I think I would only use it when actively at war with another empire and only with fleets in the area of space. Very situational for me. There might be some systems I don't want anyone to enter, even allies (I would warn them). Now, I have tested the Yankee setting with Total Allies and it does work.

    Santa Points?

    One of the techs I put into Slot 1 wasn't too high. It was Advanced Synthetic Materials.

    Santa Points?

    I put Advanced Synthetic Materials into Slot 1 for one empire and it didn't pop. I had 3cm Chain Gun already in Slot 1 for another empire but did submit an SRP this past turn. Both empires are in Andromeda. A third empire did get its Slot 1 tech but it already had SRPs saved up and activated.

    Draco Galaxy turns

    On a positive note: Intelligence operatives, interstellar merchants, spies, rumormongers and other sources report that your empire possesses a very strong colonization effort. Additionally, your sources report that your standing army is among the largest they have encountered in their travels. On an ominous note: Various spies and rumormongers also note that the DMX, seemingly dormant of late, appear to have picked up a bit in activity.

    Draco Alert!

    Some questions regarding the DMX if fellow Draco players are willing to share info. 1) I'm aware of the Minelayers, Light Cruisers, Heavy Cruisers, Battleships, Monitors, and Orbital Mining Platforms. Has anyone encountered any other DMX ship type? 2) Has the DMX you're messing with changed up it's designs in response to seeing a particular weapon system repeatedly? Are they adapting to what they are encountering from the Players? 3) Are they expanding their system beacon network and, presumably, their combat patrols since you first encountered a DMX Sector? I just encountered my first system with DMX system beacons and it was for Sector 0317. Anyone else run across this Sector?

    Can't remember an order

    Thank you!

    Can't remember an order

    Checked my notes and couldn't find it. At one point in time, there was an order that would bring all empty fleets back to the homeworld. Does anyone remember what that order is?

    Draco: Real or Fake News? Discuss...

    Pete, When figuring the CIDS defense/ship tonnage part of the formula, is that truncated, rounded, 1 or 2 decimal places?

    Draco Alert!

    I finally ran across my first DMX encounter. I lost 4 civilian planetary explorers to a single minelayer. They were headed to the last system at 4 jumps that I hadn't explored yet. It was at the warp point leading to that system. I had not encountered any system beacons at all. Time for a recon in force into that system to see how badly screwed I am.

    Draco Rumours

    The Eridani Enclaves are doing pretty good. Intelligence operatives, interstellar merchants, spies, rumormongers and other sources report that your empire possesses a very strong colonization effort. Additionally, your sources report that your standing army is among the largest they have encountered in their travels. Your sources also indicate that your merchant marine is quite strong.
