Is the planet capitol usefull, or should I destroy it?
« on: September 30, 2011, 08:37:55 PM »
Something weird just happen to me, I was rebuilding one of my planet, and destroyer the planet capitol, by mistake... I really never even though you could remove it, givin the very small bonus it give, is it better to destroy all of them, on every planet?  Unless they give some kind of bonus Im not aware off it would be the thing to do, considering they dont upgrade with tech.  It cannor be rebuild too, I was really surprise to see that you can actualy destroy it...

Well, the capitol does produce food for free (the homeworld one also resources to build ships), and also repair damaged buildings (only capitols do that, not having it means damaged building will remain damaged). Of course, later in game those bonuses may become moot as any building can do much more than the capitols (save repairing buildings).

Interesting thought. I destroyed mine once accidentally, and got worried because I don't think I could rebuild it directly; I ended up having to put on a governor to do it. Never considered leaving it knocked down though :D

I did not know it could repair buildings, in my production planet Im probably going to destroy them since the bonus they give it so little late game, that funny that you can just scrap it like that, and cant rebuild it, thats a little something that would need to be fix, or revisited.

Or, capitols don't use planet slot.

Indeed, a simple and clean solution!

I suppose code writing people don't like exception and they want to keep
EVERYTHING in the same line so its easier to manage data. Isn't it?

Pro-tip: if you're gonna destroy your planet capitol, wait til you build some other stuff first so your planet doesn't stall and immediately die out.  ::)
