New Special: WeirdNameHere Nebulae

#1 Post by Oberlus » Thu Feb 27, 2020 8:11 pm

System special created at universe generation. Should be roughly as rare as a neutron star with planets.
Effects:
- Objects in that system have +20 stealth.
- Industry-focused colonies in that system get +0.5 bonus per pop.
- Building "WeirdNameHere Collector" allows the Empire to mount WeirdNameHere cannons on their ships (both unlocked with some late game tech, maybe in the neutronium branch). The part would be to SR weapons what Neutronium armor is for armors, more powerful than last tier weapon but not so cost-efficient.

Inspired by that Neutronium Cannon from Vezzra's weapon rework in 2013.

I like that idea. :D

Can you create a feature request issue on github?

Sure. I'll work out the details too (subject to debate).

Maybe "Dark Matter" nebula and "Dark Matter" cannon?

Maybe some name which does not sound like a field?

Furthermore, I propse... we should default to four combat rounds instead of three ...for the good of playerkind.

It being a system special instead of a planet special gives it some flavour, compared to the neutronium armour.
I can't think of system specials apart from that sort of unobtanium molecule cloud thingy. We also have the acretion disc, I thought of this one as something similar to it. But anything you come up with, not related to clouds, could work.
