the different "[army purpouse]" are usually stuff like attack or defence or maneuver. When I played OWB as house the armies where grouped into 4 groups: robots+fast mechanised cars+tanktroops (spade logo), infantry (Hearts logo, these guys did defence), wildcards (puppet troops, clubs) and the airborne power armour lads had Diamonds.

Thanks for your answer I was probably bad at explaining my question well enough becasue it wasn't exactly I was asking.

So if you found a new colony, does the sector that you found the colony center on have an influence on just the colony center itself or on the sectors tha twill be annexed to it in the future? So far that I observed it doesn't have any influence on it because the Colony Center has static yields, unless of course there are landmarks like rivers of visit sites etc. on the same sector. And the other sectors are also self contained. Does it influence population for example?
>>
>>226617
All the tiles have an affect on your colony and the sectors that are its extensions. Thus you need to be tactical and careful when expanding. Also certain landmarks work better with certain sector types and depending if you are producing research or energy too.
Sectors with large amount of food are perfect to build food production sectors, ones with high industrial output are better used for industrial purposes and so on. It's good to have two colonies with two food production sectors and have them share the food with your other colonies for faster expansion. At the beginning you will have it harder since some maps will have negative factors on it that makes expansion a tad problematic (like annexing a volcanic sector will cause negative factors like unhappiness and economical downsides). Additional research will mitigate this (researching volcanic adaptation and exploitation will not only remove the negative factors, but also give you a permanent +10 per turn to energy as you extract heat from magma rivers). Hell, exploitation in the civilian research will make you want to claim certain sectors a lot. AKA: Naked sectors have a static bonus that add up to the totality of your colony, sectors exist to improve/modify those things, and tiles in the sectors may have different effects on you that can be mitigated/improved via research.
Some landmarks add extra bonuses if you manage to liberate them from marauders or defeat their guardians. Like if you take over a broadcast center you get a permanent extra +5 to influence per turn (and it stacks with your structures in the HQ and other broadcast centers).
>>
>>226443
I was more complaining that if you are surrounded by water tiles, or have very slim land sectors, there is little you can do to efficiently place a city.
I wish I could just place a building that gives me +2 water sector limit.
Or at least when water cities arrive, I will be able to have 4 water sectors.
One of the reasons why you rarely see an open-sea fleet is that thee is nothing to protect in sea.
>>
>>226635
Yes, I know all these, these are indirect benefits of the Colony Center's placement. I only wanted to know if the Colony Center itself gains any benefits from being founded on... say a forest sector or an arctic sector.

I hate to bring up other games as an example but for example in Civ6 (a game I am coming from) the tile you settle on (especially your first city) has important considerations. Like a Plains Hills are generally considered to be the best because it will give the city +1 production from the moment it is settled so the city starts its existence with 2 production instead of the standard 1 essentially doubling its base production. Same if the tile has a luxury resource which will automatically be acquired by the city without the need to build or do anything. And of course settling next to water sources. I am fully aware that the surrounding areas are equally important for planning the city's expansion and the empire's expansion later but that is not what I was asking here.

In Planetfall this works similarly by settling on sectors with rivers, landmarks, hazards, visit sites etc. and some factions have a other benefits down the line. For example Amazons settling forested sectors will immediately benefit from Ecological Construction if that doctrine is active.

But are there direct differences solely to the Colony Center itself if I found it on a naked 2/1/1/0 sector or a 0/1/1/2 sector? No landmarks, rivers, visit sites, hazards, volcanic climate etc. existing and ignoring any later expansion plans.

Thanks for sticking out with me btw.

>Yes, I know all these, these are indirect benefits of the Colony Center's placement. I only wanted to know if the Colony Center itself gains any benefits from being founded on... say a forest sector or an arctic sector.
Not at the beginning unless you research the proper civilian tech, then you will start getting the benefits. In case of the latter you will also get negatives because your colony is build deep in snowland...that is until you research arctic adaptation and exploitation.

ITS HAPPENING! ARE YOU READY FOR RTS 2.0?

>Frost Giant Studios, a new game studio formed by Blizzard Entertainment veterans, has raised $4.7 million to make its first real-time strategy game.

>StarCraft and Warcraft veterans Tim Morten and Tim Campbell said in an interview with GamesBeat that the real-time strategy genre hasn’t gotten as much attention in recent years as other big genres, like battle royale shooters or console action-adventure games. But they believe that RTS games on the PC can still be a vibrant part of gaming in the future.

>Bitkraft Ventures led the round, with participation from 1Up Ventures, GC Tracker, Riot Games, and Griffin Gaming Partners. They will use the money to grow the team, build a prototype for gameplay, conduct consumer research, and expand operations. Morten said the Irvine, California-based team has eight employees — all who once worked at Blizzard — and four contractors.

It was once poised as a question "What if Germany won WW2?" Many mods have answered the question in their own unique way with varying degrees of success. We are proud and pleased to reveal the map for "Iron Grip" a mod that explores world where the Germans won in Europe, Japan swept Asia, Italy gobbled up the middle east, and all the free world could do was watch in terror. Retain the Pax Germania as one of the successors to the Fuhrer, cling to the last remnants of the empire as Great Britain, Shepard the last democracies of the world as the United States, Unify the Russian goliath in your own image, and remake the world into your own image even if it must be remade in atomic fire.

Zoo Tycoon is one of the best and most in-depth management sims from the golden age of tycoon games. The first game is gold standard (better than RTC2 imo) and the second one is a legit classic

The original? Yes. That shit was cash.

The Jurassic world one? Maybe?
There is no proper free building mode. It's all about the campaign. It's a pretty good campaign though.
>>
>>225213
Operation genesis is fun but i'd recommend bringing a phone.
it takes a while for cash to come in at the start and while you CAN reroll to get one of the 3 'starting' dinosaur sets.
there's 3 starting dinosaur sets but one of them gets you acrocanthasaurus DNA to start off with and you can watch that stomp around and destroy shit. bottom line is since the start takes a little while to ramp up there's a whole lot of hurry up and wait but hey we all play zoo tycoon here so that's par for the course.
it really opens up as you get new techs and way's to play.
Also it's really easy to 'mod' as in you can just change the config files directly as they came from an age where it was just numbers on a notepad document so you can easily change the starting sets of dinosaurs or how much DNA you can get.
a top tip is to set it so that you can get ALL of the dig sites in a single game as it limits you to a small pool of possible dinosaurs otherwise.
It's a great game and there's a reason it's a classic and still has high scale overhaul mods coming out.
>>
>>225246
Good god could you imagine in the modern climate the $9.99 DLC packs containing three animals (one is a reskin) and then one new fence type? Such ass
>>
>>225213

Operation Genesis is neat but it get's pretty hard, specially at the start. It also has a pretty small pop cap for both dinos and guests but luckly you can go in to the files and up the pop and it doesn't effect the game to much in both the game shitting out and the game being smart enough and not just pumping people in to make everything OP.

The Jurassic World games are a bit better than OG but I also find the game more chorey, since it was made with consoles and to impress Sony you have to do a lot of the chores yourself and automating everything is a bit of a bitch. Still with all the updates and DLC I think it's pretty fun for a more casual play through.
