I want to have at least one training depot, a staryard, mech construction facilities, etc. Do they cost 1 NP each? what does the 100 in explosives do for me? bigger booms? missiles?


Yes, for now they will be one each, but you start out with one Training facility, and others depending on your tech levels. So keep that in mind when you purchase the facilities.

Yup, if you combine the mechanological material explosives allow with a unit design, yuppers, bigger booms.  :D

1 Army Command Base, 1 Fleet Command Base, 1 Air Base, 1 Star Base, 1 Shipyard, 1 Staryard (You have Space Dwellers). These Yards begin with 2 slipways with a capacity of size 4 ships (Heavy Cruiser or smaller).

For Planetary Forces 1 Training Depot, 1 Tactical Aircraft Manufactory, 1 Starfighter Manufactory (you have Space Dwellers), 1 Vehicle Manufactory, and 1 Artillery manufactory.

Do you have this consolidated in chart form somewhere in an appendix?

Doing up the Technology list right now, below is an example.  :D

But the pre-game setup lists the basic rules for what you get.

Project Name Monoplane Heavy
Tech Level Requirement Engineering 6.5
R&D Requirement Monoplane Light, 10 Aircraft Factories
Successes Required 1
Resulting Unit Type Super Dogfight, Heavy & Super Heavy Bomber, Heavy & Super Heavy Cargo. Allows production of the Strategic Aircraft Manufactory.

Sure, you can have any type of RR in a region as long as the sum total of RR layers do not exceed the regional limits.  :D

I am looking at railroads and how they work. In essance you gain .1 WU in a populated region, but pay .4 WU per Adv railroad in a empty region? This does not count raw materials cost.
the payment cost would count in say nevada where large portions are uninhabited.

That .1 WU is per layer up to the pop count. And higher levels of RR gain a larger WU bonus. Only the UR (Unpaved Road) has the .1 WU bonus. So it is cumulative and can add up to quite a bonus. And remember you get that bonus each month while maintenance is paid only once per year.  :wink:

How do I buy them in pregame setup?

Lab Rats , good description :)  
Prospectors , figured it out
Explorers, also got it.

If you begin a game at a certain tech level you gain all the technologies that required that overall tech level. So for example, you have an Engineering tech level of 8 so you all ready have all the technologies that require Eng 8.0 and lower. But below id the tech required for Super fighters.

Project Name Trans-Atmospheric Fighter
Tech Level Requirement Engineering 8
R&D Requirement Spaceplane, Jet Fighter, Precision Weaponry, 15 Rocket Factories, 15 Aircraft Factories
Successes Required 5
On completing the Trans-Atmospheric Fighter project the nation can
build Super Fighter blocks.

Lol, thanks. I am trying to keep the Mechanology stuff slightly tongue-in-cheek. As for production of the Lab Rats you can read the current Inventors and Mechanology: Inventors for that info. To the Mechanology sections only minor facelifts are required.

But the quick answer is thus: Lab Rat: 1 RP per 250. Inventors are built in the same manner as a normal Military unit, with Final Cost being determined by Block Cost, plus Added Capabilities, all multiplied by highest Mechanological Advancement Level ( FC = (BC+AC) x ML ).

So I would need to start the game with 15 rocket factories and 15 aircraft facories? Are they 1 NP apiece?

I am curious about combat. May we have some examples for both simple and complex units?
