Human base WIP...screenshot

Post by Bryan » Sat Nov 04, 2006 7:19 pm

Here is a preview of Earth, please note it is not finished. Still plan on adding a few things.

The planet has a high hull protection value, and a large fleet will be required to take it down, the shield values and recharge rates are set high (after all you are trying to destroy a planet). But first you will have to get by the defense ring...

The planet can build a planetary defense ring, which consists of 8 armed satellites capable of firing nuclear warheads, the defense rings can be upgraded according to which era it is. For example the below picture is of the Current era (2006). The satellites have half the shield energy and recharge rates of the planet itself, making the defense ring a formidable opponent to destroy.

The nuclear warheads consist of 1 missile from each satellite, each warhead is capable of a large area shockwave, which can cause high damage to a large number of ships.

So in general, if you manage to get by the weapons themselves, you still have to take out the satellites, if you manage to do that, you have a hell of a time destroying the planet before they are able to redeploy another defense ring.

Heres a sneak peek...



I also plan on adding an orbital shipyard/base which can be upgraded with each era, which will build that eras construction ship and initial defense vessels..

Please note, the picture isnt dark, you are just looking at the dark side of the planet
