Code: Select all
design_combat_value = attack_value*(1+defence_value)
Code: Select all
design_combat_value = attack_value* max( 1+defence_value, .1*attack_value )

They didn't. They're just hanging there on the outside of the hull, you can see them. If anything, the tradeoff should be the increased possibility of ammo explosion since they're just hanging there off the outside of the hull.PrivateHudson wrote:After all, where on such a small ship the furry devils find room to store so many warheads?
I can do you one better: I played the whole game without ever once constructing my own warships. The AI would look at my pathetic transport-only fleet and think "Yeah, I can beat that."zenopath wrote:I played the whole game never once needing to declare war. AI would look at my "pathetic" destroyer only fleets and thinks, "Yeah I can beat that. I shall give you an ultimatum!"

Yes, that is the other type of combat value the AI does not calculate optimaly: boarding modules (shuttles inlcuded but especially the bae boarding module itself)

I have *A* boarding transport, but the bulk of my fleet is just made of regular transports I draft from the freighter pool, and then use to assist the boarding. The AI assesses them as noncombatants and targets them last, you see. The AI isn't wrong to do this: I, too, would assess them as noncombatants and target them...for theft. I never blow up anything I could steal.
