Production of ships only on planets with arrows?
« on: January 29, 2014, 04:47:44 AM »
Hi,

I read in the tips-thread, that
Quote
When you have a lot of stars, turn off production on the far-away stars by tapping/clicking on them (this removes the arrow). This makes ships get created closer to the front lines.

Does this mean, with more planets my production-value (ships per seconds) increases, but only planets with arrows are producing. So less producing planets mean those still producing produce ships faster? Is there any manual or explanation how production works in detail?

Thanks!

There is a cap on the maximum number of ships possible for each empire. When you reach that cap, production stops. When a ship dies somewhere, it can respawn anywhere -- it can be far away, or it can be close. By turning off production on far-away stars you ensure that it spawns close.

Thank you for your answer.

Is there any way to estimate if I'm about to reach that cap? Is this cap fixed regardless the map- and empire-size?

The cap is something like 12 ships per number of stars (all stars, not just player controlled). The number isn't displayed anywhere, but if you see that the production has become sporadic, then you've hit it.

Also keep in mind stars with over 50 ships in orbit don't produce any new ships.
