Minimum Build Time to 0.0XXX1 Seconds

Postby Eterna » Sun Nov 14, 2010 1:00 am

What, if any, limit should we set on the minimum build time?

Instant builds DO cause a few minor bugs, and DO put a greater strain on the server.
By making it an fraction of a second it still allows for defense ninja's, and doesn't make people wait for minutes.
At a minimum of 0.0001, with 10,000 units as the maximum you can input per unit per slot, that one slot take 1 second. instants would give more time for players to correct mistakes.

I think 1000 ships in a second is better than 0 :]

I can live with .0001. The max you can build is 10,000, so the time that it takes to put 10,000 in que then que up another 10,000 will take more than a second. And if that puts less of a strain on the server, then I am all for it.

Ahm, I have to say NO!!! Come on guys, keep the game REAL. Can you instant build a boat for example? Or 10 000 boats at once?

The idea to deform the DF and put it in the moon creation is something realistic and I really liked it. I am not sure for the others but I think that the game should stay like it is!!!

I vote yes. Keep in mind this is in the future. And with millions and millions of nanite robots it may be possible to build a ship in less than a second in the future.

I totally agree, but you have to pick your battles. A 1 second limit for 10k def at least gives us a fighting chance not to get Ninja'd by some turtle sitting on billions of res with the ability to build 100k def at once.

It is much better than nothing (insta-build as is now).

I voted for 1000/sec not 10000/sec. Its much more reasonable in the case of building the bigger defenses and ships. Personally i'd rather not have this at all but if I had to choose 10000 is too much.
