Could the minimum build time be capped at 1s for all constructable items?

It was originally - a select few in the first test team wanted insta allowed.

How bout you get Malphage or MyrSee to set this question in the Voting booth?

Just as the title says, should the build times be capped at 1 second to prevent "insta-build" of anything.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and has been widely regarded as a bad move.

Instead of 1 second minimum build time, it is possible for me to set it to 1/10th of a second, or 1/100th. Even 1/1000th etc is possible. I'm currently running tests on this in Uni2

How about a per/min value based on total res cost/structure points...

I like the Instabuild- it's a tool that the attacki has at their disposal when an attacking fleet is incoming.

yeah if you spend the time and res to get your nanites and robots up high enough you should be able to insta-build

I like the 1 second cap... I might not like it when I have nanite 16 or whatever it would take to instabuild RIPs and some of the titans but I like it now. However, considering that the smaller defenses (like light lasers) typically have just awful RF agianst them, it wouldn't be real great - what I'm worried about is when people can start instabuilding gauss cannons and BCs and stuff like that. That would be just completely retarded >.>...

Thats why i asked eOs if it was possible to do fractions of a second. Its not quite instant so you cant just spawn half a million ll 1 sec before an attack, but it would be a big enough deal to keep leveling up your nanite and get the bonus from it.
