Very Cool Game And A Few Questions
« on: October 21, 2009, 04:54:26 PM »
Just tried the demo and decided to buy really love the chilled out vibe to this game. Just a quick question though is there a limit to the number of seedlings an asteroid can produce? Linked to possibly the power or number of trees. Also is the power of each asteroid dependent on size.

Tried a skirmish in the demo arena and got slaughtered didn't seem to be able to build up any real army so the AI attacked an steamrollered me. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Yes, when you have 40 seedlings or more on an asteroid it will cease to produce seedlings. I dont know if there is a limit to the amount of seedlings you can have on a particular asteroid however, I have had more than 500 in some cases.

The levels of strength, power and speed are influenced by the asteroids size, as is the core energy of the asteroid. I am not certain whether this is always true or whether you can script asteroids to have high stats and be small.

I find a simple strategy is this, always scout every asteroid you can see to be aware of any threats before they arrive, use the majority of your seedlings to build more seedling trees and always place these trees on the asteroids with the best stats you have access to. This way you get the best seedlings you can as quick as possible with the largest numbers. Defense trees are best used on critical locations such as choke points or objective specific asteroids as they can cause tremendous damage to large numbers of enemies. They are also needed for manufacturing laser mines but generally most of your trees should be for seedlings.

Good luck !

Thanks for the reply. Is the number produced linked to the number of Dyson Trees I had an asteroid with 4 trees and this maxed out at 40 so maybe it's 10 per tree can anyone confirm this.

Also does energy have an effect on this at all.

No, its 40 for all asteroids irrelevant of the number of trees as far as I know.

Energy doesnt effect the spawn limit however I think it may effect the spawn rate although I cant say if thats just me seeing things because I have never put it to the test.
