Armed planets- anyone done it?

Has anyone messed with making the planets armed? I have assigned weapons HPs to a sphere and pretty much made a planet a station but even though they will not work if it is taken over. I realize the alternate is to simply make the planet a full station and assign resources to it but it will not rota...

I think that any race contacting us from afar will certainly be able to take into account our stage of development and bio make up that stems from our mammalian and reptilian roots. If you go into the bush and pick up a viper by the tail to look at him he attempts to defend himself. He doesn't know ...

I've studied paleo-anthropology and paleo-archeology as a novice. The one thing that bugs everyone is the rapid evolution of humans. It is unprecedented in all of evolution. No other creature has changed by the huge margins that hominids have. With tons of other species to compare to they have evolv...

And don't forget you can add resources to "stations" like planets, moons and asteroids are so you could mine the sucker too!

Sure, anyone that just wants to mod for the sake of doing it is OK! I guess the best weapon to stop ships is something like the engine overload on the Steamrunner. The ship is dead but the crew is OK. Any variant on that weapon will work. I've found that the trouble with that is that once the enemy ...

dragon breath- Just curious, why do you want to disable the ship and not the crew? Sooner or later they fix the ship and go away unharmed and you can't take over the ship with crew aboard.

7 of 9 has a slightly more voluptous figure than T'Pol. If 7 of 9 is a 10 than T'Pol is a 9.5!

It is a fault of the data entry person putting pricing codes into the chain store's computer system. They're humans and make errors. Garbage in- garbage out. In addition there are softwware glitches. It all has to to do with the UPCs and the SKUs working correctly when a product is scanned. Super ma...

Terestel- call your mod anything you want. If anybody from any software company wanted to bust anyone for modding files and offering them free they would have tried doing it long ago. They actually like the idea that folks love their products so much and it actually stimulates sales and overall inte...

AFC- If, for example, a person only gets copies of games made by friends it is like spitting in the ocean compared to the off-shore illegal industry. They ain't replicating games. There's no money in it. They are producing fake Windows, Word Perfect, Photoshop, and all the software stuff like that. ...

Hmm? Never knew you could do that in A1. Always figured allies had to be set before you start.

I for one like the Borg and only play Borg along with races I assimilate. Don't mess with the Borg. As far as textures go you can import anything you want from A1 or make new ones easily with a simple non-Photoshop program.

Do you mean switch sides and control an allie's ships and stations? You couldn't do that in A1 either.

I worked for many years in the CD replication industry. The real threat to software and music always has been foreign- mainly asian- pirating and illegal replication in the multi 1000s quantities. The gaming industry has absolutely no impact if some folks copy a game and give it to their friend. RIA...
