Invasion?
« on: January 10, 2017, 11:14:42 AM »
It's 2096 in my current game and I haven't had a combat challenge for decades.   The local 154 race doesn't pose a threat to even my worst combat fleets.   They seem to be a couple techs behind me at this point. 

So I went and turned the invaders on in game options and was curious if doing so mid game actually works? Will they eventually show up?
Also, I've heard talk about various "spoilers" afaik, I haven't come across anything other than basic NPRs, 3 to be exact.   I've explored at least 50 systems (~edit, make that 126), just curious if I'll eventually start encountering some more capable enemies. 

Does PDC deployment time matter? For instance, if I wanted to put a simple AMS base on a automated mining planet, can I use a PDC for that or will the deployment time tick down?

yes, invaders can trigger if turned on midgame.

Precursors and Star Swarm only appear if they are turned on when a new system is explored. You may not be encountering any if NPRs have explored most systems before you; a toggle was introduced to turn on and off whether NPRs could trigger spoilers, but it is bugged and seems to just set it to off afaict.  You may still encounter them through exploration of new systems.

PDCs do use morale last i checked.A recreational ship or orbital habitat can get around this.

I'm thinking that a PDC does not actually use moral at all with regards to deployment time. Since a PDC can never have any speed above 0/ms to move then it can also never carry out an order to dock at a hanger.

In addition a planetary hanger which many folks use for many reasons is essentially just a PDC with lots of hanger bays. Since a hanger is a military module it causes the ship it is on to suffer moral issues. As no planetary hanger I have use has ever suffered from morale issues I can only conclude a PDC is immune to the effects of morale.
