    Order the D-Officer to fabricate a conspiracy with all available personel, set course for the Airstrip, initate decompression of the heavy infantry kit as soon as the gunship template has been decompressed and order the Rail Titan to built a network.

    If our goosery with the disks causes a response, I'd like to have it pointed at someone else if possible. The network will aid us in keeping a good supply of resources and if we take control of the airfield, we might be able to gain our own air support.

    Infantry fighting vehicles are armoured transports. They're reasonably well armed, but their primary function is to mechanize infantry.

    So what kind of offensive capabilities does the main tank have?

  • TipharethTiphareth Registered User regular
    Main cannon is anti-vehicular and side cannons anti-infantry I'd guess?

    Well, it wasnt how want to start things off but I think we made an impression.

    Strategy: We have seen some combat now and it looks deep. Priority number one should be filling these IFV with some infantry and then adding some support. Medium term we need to have some anti-air capabilities to fight the massive retaliation airstrikes that I am sure are inbound.

    So what are we thinking for doctrine long term? What do you guys want our forces to look like a 100 ticks out?

    We need main battle tanks.

    Also we should probably outfit some super heavy infantry as soon as we build these main tanks. We have 4 empty infantry transports after all.

    It seems apparent to me that our first priority should be to stock up on Androids till we're at capacity. This means we need fuel to keep the Zettabay running (that thing is gulping it down). It looks like personnel are the most cost-effective force multipliers we have available, so I propose a policy of Androids for general crew, and pulping our organic crew into Officers.

    We also should get the regenerative megaresistor tiles, because that's a freebie.

    - Assume command over the standing military forces and immediately move to a new location of your choice. You will receive an assembled unit of 1d4 Light Tanks and 2d4 Light IFVs will full complements of conscripts. Orion Base will be erased from your RADAR.

    - Use the Collossinator to transform the military vehicles & equipment into a War Titan entity. War Titans act as Generals, and automatically convert slain enemy combatants & equipment into assets for it's own use. You will need to remain stationary for 5 Ticks to erect the War Titan.

    - Mark Orion Base as a valuable asset and immediately move to a new location of your choice. You will gain 2d20 Asset Tokens which may be traded with other KaT units or spent to make special requests from Kaiser Fleet. Orion Base will be erased from your RADAR.

    Cobra Faction - South Korean Association

    Cobra Faction is openly engaged in hostilities against us. They can be expected to continue deploying units at a rate of 1d6 every 10 Ticks. The lethality of units and rate of deployment is expected to increase as hostilities continue.

    Pacification of Cobra Faction is a high priority objective.

    - Do you wish to deploy probes to attempt to locate Cobra Faction's forward bases? Each probe deployed will have a 50% chance of locating a base. Analysis suggests that Cobra Faction currently has 4 forward bases in operation; if these are eliminated, Cobra Faction will be rendered temporarily harmless.

    - Do you wish to switch your RADAR from Sector Scan mode to Threat Scan mode? Up to three checks will be made every update to locate a forward base with a 50% chance of success.

    - Cobra Faction has accumulated 3 Terror. If 100 Terror points are inflicted upon Cobra Faction, they will disintegrate. Terror may be inflicted upon a faction by launching terror raids, assassinating members of their government, destroying their bases, and a few other activities.

    Incoming hostiles!

    Some more troops was tempting but we need a general to protect our factory and you know, it's a war Titan.

    The SAM vs air cav was hard but we need some protection from aircraft.

    As for the radar/probes, we are in no shape to be going on the offensive. We need to concentrate on building up our forces and that takes sites.

    I think we should make all our mechanized infantry useful by putting some troops in 'em. I also want some corvus class soonish. We need more humans desperately so we can pulp more engi officers and stuff.
    As for our research, the regenerative tiles would give us much needed defense and will be done soon enough to actually do us good in the current engagement. I also think we are unlikely to meet aircraft as of right now.

    Well my thought was that if we are burning tiles now we are screwed anyway. With the situation we are in (outnumbered and outgunned) we cannot afford to be on our backfoot. We have to keep thinking long term and try to get 50 clicks of building caught up.

    Kincaid is already building two main battle tanks, we will not be able to build anything before the first group enters but we should stick to building what we already have started. By the time group E hits we can finish the tanks and make some Watcher-Class.

    As a question, does the zettabay cost 20 fuel per turn or 20 fuel per job? 120 fuel seems like a huge amount to spend.

    Totally forgot about Kincaid being busy right now. These tanks are slow stuff to make.

  • The EnderThe Ender Registered User regular
    Folks, I would your feedback. I'm thinking of implementing two pretty major changes for the next update:

    1) I do not like the 'Ticks' mechanic; it's a lot clunkier than I thought it would be and it slows the game down, which is the opposite of it's intended function. I want to phase-out this mechanic, and give everything a simple resource cost (including movement & research: the KaT will accumulate CPU points every turn to spend on templates and Ingress points every turn to spend on reaching locations. This will also give me something to do with the Super Conveyance upgrade). If you can afford it, it builds / is researched in 1 turn.

    2) I want to give things an up-front crew cost. I think this will be less clunky than later having crew assigned to vehicles, while achieving exactly the same result. It also gives an advantage to setting-up factories, since vehicles produced at factories have no crew cost.


    Any objections / other thoughts? Anyone prefer to just keep playing with the Ticks system? Obviously you'll keep all of your present progress even if I change-up the mechanics.

    I'm perfectly fine with you changing the system to whatever you feel works. As it stands now, I have a bit of a problem remembering what actions I can vote for (or rather, what is unavailable), so a change might not be a bad idea.

  • WubWub Registered User
    No objections here, change it however you think you need to.

    Joseph Cain successfully indoctrinated a cult of followers. 1 Espionage Officer and 13 general personnel have been gained. Joseph Cain is prepared for immediate re-assignment.

    Rail Titan Draco has constructed a Rail Network. The colossus is prepared for immediate re-assignment.

    Probe Beta has returned to the KaT and requires refuelling.

    Abduction Disk group King has returned to the KaT with 4 general personnel. All Abduction Disks require refuelling.

    !!!WARNING!!!

    Hostile forces have entered weapons range of the KaT. Sensors detect 13 fully manned Cobra faction XK21 KNIFV Infantry Fighting Vehicles. War Titan Orion has taken command of all available military units to defend the KaT. Prepare for combat:
    Spoiler:

    2 hostile forces have been neutralized. 2 forces remain on approach, 1 hostile force continues to threaten Sirius Factory Compound.

    Probe Gamma and Probe Theta have been launched to Sector C and Sector E. They will send their reports next turn.

    What I've got in mind here to to keep KiTKaT defended and pointing the finger at someone else while still building terror against Cobra. Once we can refuel the Abduction Disks I'd like to send them back out, too. Even if we Placate them, they're bound to start getting nervous as we continue to lobe clip/disintegrate/COLLOSSINATE their neighbors.

    We have enough time to head to the defense ministry and get back to defend the factory. These groups of IFV don't seem too bad right now so between the giant tank we are and our rail Titan I don't think we have anything to worry about tank defense wise.
