I almost steal one aircraft in the beginning of a campaign because it is more efficient but after this one I almost build them by myself because I don’t like it (morale).
So I go with the second one, but this could mean on the one side I do it through the whole game because it is more efficient or on the other side I do it not because I don’t like it. This answer is not really clear …
If i find some Helios, i steal them, in addition to build them by myself. It looks like that Factions don’t build new aircrafts, at least my synderion faction has run out of helios and have not found any new versions.
The issue is the price, you need around 200 techs and ~1200 materials in addition around 1-4 days build time. If you raid haven for resources, you have to raid 2x materials, 1x tech to have resources to build the aircraft, or you just steal the aircraft. In midgame, i start building helios by myself because faction helios are pretty limited in quantity.
Because the devs decided to tone down the relationship lost from raiding heavens. Before it was -15 for the faction and -30 for the heaven leader. But even these higher numbers are a joke compared to the rewards.
I would like it if it would go up with every raid on the same faction. For instance the first raid will cost -6/-12 and then for every raid to a heaven of the same faction you receive an additional penalty of -3/-6 or even more.
I thought there was a system where if you attacked a faction where you had the “aligned” status with (faction relations of 75+) they’d just auto declare war on you?? DId they get rid of this in the latest patch?? or is it just broken and doesn’t work??
If they got rid of this then why?? seems a little bit exploitative…
welp, time to add another self restriction to the list
Every playthrough I seem to add one. I do really hope that changes eventually.
But… we can discuss the issue that sometimes you can’t reach some locations without a better aircraft, New Zealand for instance, but also North America <—> Europe/Siberia
I can confirm that is an issue , lot of attacks in the other continent and you can’t cross because your 100% scanning is not allowing spots to “jump” to the other continent,
in the beginning you can’t activate all the bases, you activate a few hoping for the best, but…
