How rare are Rakhas?
« on: July 05, 2020, 09:09:45 AM »
So I play pretty intensively since the release, switching to new versions when released. I got some pretty long games with lot of exploration and plenty of Swarm and Precursors. But I never encountered Rakhas.

In my current game I have 15+ systems with Precursors and several systems infested with Swarm. Quite a lot of 0 cost or less than 1 cost planets. But still no Rakhas. Are they rare or did I miss info about them not being in game?

They seem to be really rare, but I have found them.

I think I found them once, but they never used their STO to attack my ships that were hanging out surveying and then they disappeared. I didn't kill them, but when I went back to the system after a war distracted me, they were gone.

Also never found them.
To beam, or not to beam.   That is the question
the answer is you beam. and you better beam hard.

They need a certain temperature band of about a hundred degrees wide, some oxygen, no dangerous gases, available water, substantial accessible minerals and no ruins.

That is proving to be a very difficult combination. For v1.12 I am dropping the requirements for water, no dangerous gas and high mineral accessibility. Instead, if they meet the other requirements and there is at least one mineral present, there is a 30% chance they will be present. The total mineral accessibility will determine the size of their forces.

Hi,

I am very inexperienced in this game (played years ago and now picked it up again a few weeks ago).  But I think I found them?
Basically I stumbled over a ~1b population on a perfectly human-suited world.

This is my first encounter with Aliens in C#, so I was quite excited.
But then was lost about what to do.  Communication was not happening.  No ships.
So eventually I decied to land around 25k tons of infantry, which gave me an instant victory ( I don't think they had any units) and then the message that the population refuses to surrender, requiring a lot more military forces.
So eventually managed to shuttle over 250k tons of troops (which, if I read another of Steve's posts correctly, will increase in 1. 12 by a factor of 100???) and that made them surrender.
Now I have a second population on that planet with the Rogar aliens, which I am not sure what to do with.  Apparently they require policing / suppressing.  So I shuttled all the 250k tons of army from "my" population over to the alien population.  I would have assumed they could just walk over, since its the same planet.

How can I use the aliens? Forced labor? Or will they eventually integrate into my civilisation? Can I merge the two populations on the same planet?

Thanks
Thomas

This seems to be normal NPR maybe pre TN, if you selected that option. Rakhas have only military forces and no population.

If you control their colony then they are normal part of your civilization, but after conquest there is big malus on their productivity You can check in Economics - Summary, there is Political Status, normal is Imperial Population and you will have something else, not sure what is lowest level called right now, maybe Occupied? This will change after some time and with higher Political Status, productivity will rise as well.

Edit:
You can use them as forced labor - build Forced Labour Construction Camps or Mining Camps - http://aurora2.pentarch.org/index.php?topic=8495.msg105681#msg105681
Check the post by Steve, I personally do not use aliens for that as you will consume the population in the process.

You can drag and drop ground forces formations between colonies on the same body in the Ground Forces window.

The NPR population slowly changes state towards imperial citizens.  Currently sitting at "Candidate", with slightly reduced efficiency and increased policing demand.
I created forced labor and forced mine camps just to test them out.
More importantly, the new specie can stomach lower gravity and temperature, so they make good Belters.  The Sol asteroid belt is now populated with the new aliens.  Note: on these new colonies they are instantly full citizens without any efficiency reduction.

Thanks! That's very good to know.
