The BOMB order

Recommended Posts

Greeting Draco Galaxy!!

Has anyone heard anything about when this order might make it explosive return?

It was listed on the Draco info PDF some 40+ turns ago as being inactive for recoding

but that's the last we heard.

In the old SuperNova the Death Machines got points toward being Unit Prime by how many biologicals they killed , and their level of being a Death Machine also gave them higher levels of more destructive MDD's .

Well without a functional BOMB order the DMX will have get their biological kill fix the ole fashioned way. They will have to land troops by which time we will be ready with our Tckon Imperial Assault Can Openers :)

Personally I was never very fond of the BOMB order. In Andromeda I never used it. Thought it was such a waste of valuable population resources. In Draco I like it even less as population seems to be an even more critical resource.

DMX do not operate pop centers like we do. They don't use the same mechanics that we use to produce stuff. Too bad really as I was looking forward to chopping them up into scrap metal and use them as a raw resource. :)

Since the Bomb order is up in the air. I bring up an important point since it hasnt worked forever we should receive notice if or when it is going to be worked on. Right now everyone is immune but why are the Death machines running around with bombs if the system doesnt work. Also, will we be brought up to speed on how to use bombs effectively? I personally want to use bombs as well even on home worlds. My race does not need to conquer other races due to its design.

MDD's only destroy installations and the subsequent pop, maybe some additional pop. They don't impact troops or stockpiles. Dropping enough MDD's can have adverse effects on planet conditions.

 

You drop the MDD's using the BOMB order and then sit back to see what happens. In the past you would have to scan the planet again to assess damage as there was't any sort of a report to tell you what happened. Part of the upgrade is supposed to make things more automatic and predictable. If the DMX forces don't have pop groups then MDD's are a waste against them.

 

In andromeda the use of mdd's can be called for when the enemy can just gate away. In Draco there is really little call for them since the pop can't escape. The biggest prize in the game, for the first 10 years or so, is population. Only time will tell if the same holds true for Draco.

 

I presume that the Bomb order could be back to working any day so I have stockpiles of MDD's and ships to carry them.

 

just sayin'
