turning invaders on and off?
« on: March 01, 2021, 11:36:42 AM »
Ok I got a bit tired from fighting their hordes to no end, my entire campaign essentially got halted because I constantly fight them, so I would like to turn off their ships spawning for some time. My question is, is it safe to do it mid game? So far I turned them off and rifts and all that are still there, they still exist in db so it looks fine, but  before I continue and get too invested I want to make sure I can reenable them later and once I do it they'll begin sending new ships again.

Tl:dr; I want rifts to keep growing and all that, I just want to prevent new ships and rifts spawning for a certain amount of time.

yeah your cool, existing rifts will stay and (should) continue to grow. When you re-enable invaders they should eventually start spawning stuff again.

I remember I got sick of rifts too so instead I created an RP scenario where I would board and capture an invader construction ship and then "sacrifice" it in order to close a rift (DB deleting the rift) after a year of it sitting in the center of the rift. I just thought I would mention this as you might find it an interesting method as an alternative to toggling them off.

Nope, according to my aar humanity hasn't developed technology to destroy wormholes yet ;)

And I don't want to do that because more rifts means more challenge and them being harder to contain which I like.

I just got tired of them constantly spawning, because I literally wasn't able to progress further - populations stopped grwing, construction stopped happening, whole industry halted, research stopped, ship designing stopped, EVEYRYTHING was paused as I was micromanaging combat for hours to no end.

I feel like filthy cheater but I just need a break and restored balance between combat and development.

P.S. I'd actually advise you to make it depending on the size of the rift rather than always a year.
