Upgrading/Refitting Units

Post by davelogan69 » Tue Mar 19, 2013 2:58 pm

Hi. Good game so far. Reminds me a lot of Alpha Centauri, a bit slower though. It would be nice to be able to see the whole tech tree in-game. My one suggestion is to give the player to upgrade his older units with newer abilities/weapons or armour - might be cool to be able to refit a unit with whatever at anytime. I haven't played that much, but it seems you are going in the right direction. I will post again when I've played more.

This could have some interesting implications - mass build a cheap unit, and then upgrade him once you have an army and more time to spare.

Remember you have to be able afford the refits/upgrades. I know in SMAC it's sometimes in your interest not to upgrade everything to the best possible equipment and it also pays to specialize certain units for certain tasks.

Most likly there will be some cost to the upgrade, as to prevent cheep spam whit mass upgrade.

I realize this, but sometimes you need units NOW but once the immediate threat is past, you don't want crappy units lying around
