  1. Good to know! So my low pulse tech is not directly compared to my enemies? This is somewhat helpful and makes researching pulse engines not immediately necessary. Does ones pulse tech also make missiles and torpedos harder to kill more or more effective against a low tech enemy? Seams like a high tech pulse engine on a missile would be far more effective against a low pulse engine on an enemy ship.
  2. It would appear I have a pirate on my borders who favors Fighters and Drones and NOT diplomacy. I have a lot of catchup to do to stiffen my defense. My particular weakness is Pules Engines. Can someone educate me on the problems I am going to face if my enemy has Mark XXV antimatter pulse engines and I only have nuclear pulse engines? Draco rules confuse me on these issues and I never truly understood them in Andromeda. Am I at a HUGE disadvantage and need a crash research program or is it a non-issue?
  3. Thanks, but the core question remains. I have found an undefended homeworld ripe for the taking. Is it my play or lack of species brainpower holding me back? Over 6 players have conquered the defenses Pete has set up for home worlds and I have not.
  4. With the news that 6 home worlds fell this turn I am left feeling inadequate. I know of a vacated home world some 6 warps away from my position and I am still quite a few turns from beginning my preparation to conquer it. I am left with the question. Have I been playing poorly or are these other seemingly successful races just super-brains with highly advanced tech? I lean towards the ground pounder end of the spectrum but have few negatives and no positives to my intelligence. My signup/setup shows my race to have a tiny +1 Research Bonus. Is that a sufficient excuse or have I playe
  5. How distressing. Why can my empire have such wonderful tech as jump drives and Mk XXIV Death Beams but does not have the intellectual capacity to develop an OFF switch on a beacon?
  6. What is the order (or procedure) to delete one of your own beacons and to get it to stop transmitting? Do I go to the system and issue a LC for the Beacon? I want to stop one of my beacons from singing before another empire finds it.
  7. I am beginning a long term colonization plan and trying to determine the priorities I should give to various resource avail to me. Given the tech that I have yet no exposure too, what are the emphasis I should place on mining various resources? What is the priority list? I know the list starts: Steel crystals light metals ??? ??? ?? and ends with mineral fertilizers Can someone complete this list with their knowledge of future techs?
  8. Great! Can I put this in my convoy orders? Can I. Xoc some construction materials. And then have a con. Domed cities in the convoy orders?
  9. Can I unload some construction materials and use them the same turn to build a fission plant that very same turn?
  10. I wonder if the cap of 1000 ships also includes planetary bastions and orbital bases? Can I have 1000 ships AND 3000 planetary bastian AND 2000 orbital stations? i sure hope so...if I adopt these reforms I am going to have to build something with all these increased iron production I will gain. BTW, what are the prerequisites for this tech? Also, I can see a ton of time wasted every turn to see if I am near or over this limit. Pete, are we going to see a “total ship count” line on our printout to minimize our efforts?
  11. I have a fire control question. I just battled some DMX light cruisers and the fire control section of my orders was: ZZZZZ # xxxx (+40 [Leaders * Lifeform] Total tonnage: 1,223,000.....Base Fire Control: 1 [6,000 bridge] I had a fleet admiral (level 6) with my fleet What does the +40 (leaders times lifeform) mean???? I expected a FC of 7 (1 for bridge + 6 for the admiral) Did I have a FC of 41? (40 for the admiral + 1 for bridge) What is it about my lifeform (besides are outrageously good looks) that would transform a level 6 admiral
  12. Does anyone have the ANZ results for a MK I Standard Torpedo???? I found some and want to use them but none of my data from any Draco empires or old Andromdeda empires ever found this data. If you don't have Draco then Andromeda should do nicely for my purposes.
  13. Is there a way to use the Imperial palace on an Ipad???? Any suggestions on how I can send in a SN turn with only Ipad availability???? Would there be a way to do it if I switched to an Android tablet???
  14. Please describe the effects of this order and some of the circumstances it would be used. In paticular how to not take all of the processed radioactive off a colony rendering its fission reactors useless
