I’m playing after a long time away and very immediately remember the feeling of “ah shit… what the heck do I build?” I can only imagine how lost new players must feel.
I would like to see about taking the following data to suggest a build for your empire:
- your empire’s race
- your empire’s research
- your current production
- your projected production (calculated from incoming buildings)
- your family’s production
- your family’s projected production (calculated from family’s incoming buildings)
- a “stability” weight based on how long planets have been owned, so that wartime gains/losses are accounted for when factoring
This would be only a rough suggestion and more experienced players would probably be able to fine-tune their builds to be far more efficient. Similarly, family econ planners would probably do a better job but families who don’t have that luxury won’t be completely without direction.
