So I see. As shown by the vote, people love insta-build.

However I am not sure why? Do people simply like it because they can lure attackers in, build a crap-ton of def/ships and insta-build ninja the attacker, seriously that is it?

I say no. Insta-build is a perk of dumping millions upon millions of res into the nanite/shipyard/robotics. I have odd and sometimes short playing windows. When I reach insta-build point and can build my ships at the click of a button then I can make sure they are off planet before I log off. Don't have to worry about building them over my offline time and hope no one destroys them before I log back on.

i dont feel like sitting and watching ships take hours to build at one second. And the insta defense build is just another strategy you have to anticipate.

well if we were to keep things along the realistic lines, then even one sec is pushing it, but even when we stray away from them i think that the very most that should be done is drop it down too 100th of a mill sec. this way yes you can kinda insta build but to a limit. still takes time but you cant build millions in a sec. and if you all still want it so bad, why not make it a tech that u have to unlock.

name - insta build
requirements -
nanite 6
robot factory 15
research lab 18
com tech 18
laser tech 16
plasma tech 12
energy tech 20
scientist 3

lv 1 insta build 10
lv 2 insta build 25
lv 3 insta build 50
lv 4 insta build 100
lv 5 250
lv 6 500
lv 7 1000
lv 8 2500
lv 9 5000
lv 10 10 000

max lv 10
high cost and long time to research

looks fair and all, this way if you want it you have to unlock it.
and not everybody will have it this way

sorry tooke, that's just not possible with the way production times are handled.

the most that could be done would be a tech that acts like the nanite...which defeats the purpose right?

After testing extensively in Universe2, having minimum build times set to a hundredth of a second, or a thousandth of a second, actually works quite well.

It allows defenses to be built VERY quickly, but not instantaneous.
0.001 second times 1,000 = only 1 second. the max amount of ships would be 10 sec each group max
