Need a little help...

Post by Nfredible » Thu Jun 02, 2005 9:49 am

Hey players. Anyone feeling a little generous? I only have a couple games under my belt and there are a few things that I haven't found supportive literature on yet. In VPA, CTRL-P brings up a box with PB1 through PB9. I understand it's priority build screen. Is that just a box to keep in mind what's needed, or does it actually trigger something in the game and build ships in a certain order at bases? Thanks in advance for any help!!

Thats a FC order for building on Starbases. If you set a SB to FC PB1, then it will set its build priority to first, a SB with PB2, will build second, and so on.

Thanks Ed. So it has to do with the order that the bases build. That explains why in the game opener theres a whopping 1 available.
Time to continue cutting my teeth on the game?

They are only used for PBP builds (ie, those you get with >20 PBPs) after the ship limit is reached.

Er, actually it's after 450 ships in game, not limit.
