I built the relavent buildings for asteroid ships on an asteroid outpost, but I cannot build the ships. When I look at unavailable ships the asteroid ships seem to pass all the required conditions, but do not appear in the available list.
Has anyone managed to build any asteriod hulled ships recently? I am using version 5127 - windows.
Also when I get Silmaline Crystals on an asteroid field, the description talks about getting 25 production when using mining focus and increased growth for Litic species. I cannot use foci on asteroid fields (which I beleive is intentional).
Artificial Minds tech works on outposts, since they have Infrastructure. If techs working on Infrastructure affect outposts they can start to produce quite a lot of resources.
Overall the new system for outposts (zero population) is looking good.
You need an actual asteroid colony. Build some exobots, as they can live on asteroids. That's your quick fix
And we need to change something -- either the conditions for asteroid construction, or the habitability of asteroids.
