Thread: fleet control - ships

Hi folks,

I started playing here a couple days ago and its pretty cool, even though i seemed to join at the end of the round.

Anyway, my question is can you have too many control centres and space ports, and even too many ships?

My fleet control dropped to around 70% and im not sure whether its because of too many ships, or too many buildings.

Thoughts please... and see you around.

For 100% Fleet Control you need 1 Fleet Control Center for every 20 ships. Too few ships drops your FC and too many ships drops your FC.

Please note that you automaticaly have one fleet control center.

"and dont forget for ur first 20 ships u dont need a commandcenter...."

That's probably why this line existed in my post.
"Please note that you automaticaly have one fleet control center."

I suppose it could be for a random 20 ships in the middle of your fleet.

think of it this way -- your home world *is* a command center and it is one that can never be destroyed and can *always* command 20 ships.

By way of example:

600 space ports -- hold 1,800 ships
1,800 ships -- require 90 command centers
1 home world -- equals 1 command center
the "command centers" line in "show empire" should have 89 in it (assuming your space ports are filled to the brim)
89 command centers + 1 home world = 90 command centers = controls 1,800 ships

and you would be at 100% fc... for 200 ships ( the minimum required for attacking...) you would need 9 command centers. also note harvesters, torpedos and space mines do not use command centers.

Does the Mine Grid count towards number of ships?

Never Mind .... Found the answer.

"Harvesters, Torpedoes and Mine Grids does not use command centers or space ports."

Does anyone other than philldodildo know what the hell a command center does? what difference does it make to your fleet?

Better command of your fleet (i.e. higher Fleet Control %) makes your fleet more effective and more likely to win a given battle

Basically Limerick,
You want to have 100% Fleet Control when You're going into a battle (Offensively, OR Defensively)...
The Higher your Fleet Control, the better your ships perform in a battle situation.

Other factors play into the chance of a win as well, but, that wasn't what the question was, so, seeing as I've answered your question, I'mma shut my yap now.

My command centers are really gerbil cages with the gerbils going very fast on their little wheels until they pass out. One gerbil has a pellet of food that shocks him every time he tries to eat it. He has white hair that stands on end. He kind of looks like an Einstein gerbil but he shocks him self a lot. He has done this 18 times. I call him Voltage18.
