It would add something but i can't see it working well in this game has they would go the way of barracks i.e no one uses them or most other space games has like isay said one good ship heck just a small ship with good tech could take them out.

Barracks, Laser Turrets, Missile Turrets, Plasma Turrets, Plasma Turrets, Photon Turrets, Disruptor Turrets, Deflection Shields, and Planetary Shields take up area on a base so those could be classed has ground units but i am guessing that you mean soldiers and humvees, tanks, etc.

hahahahah even in reality i think inteligence beings who can travel through space go and land on planet to refuel, do some *beep* and go on. I like better idea to destroy structures, but the cost and time would be reduced, and very slow demolish fleet that would make advantage for you, *beep* to others.

ye it would be cool
but this is a online game in a make believe spreadsheet game
if the devs want to have faster than light speed travel
the best colony's are on planets that probably have no breathable air
an advanced galactic based empire that hasn't got around to inventing nukes
etc etc etc
and it makes for a more fun game
then good on them

Tanks, Artilerry, defense on a astro should take down those fleets who came into orbit and help you to destroy them, larger ships probably stay in orbit and shoot down from above. Catapult fleet or so would damage the structure, like fleets get damaged and get fixed, with credits....... Nukes would destroy all or many structures, but you need plutonium uranium resource in the game to make a nuke. Nuke i dont like, i have enough of radiation around the nuclear power plant 10km away.. Than i would need land units, in reality even advanced species would have land units for planetary control, not in space only, problems get solved by killing those who makes more trouble then they can fix it.

It's horribly inefficient to land spacecraft on a planet. Any sufficiently advanced race is going to refuel in space.

I would always love to see a AT-TE on planet, but that would require landing cost for landing craft. Then what? We add fuel? Some of you would like this game to be a Stategy game by the same format as Civilization 5 (excluding the turn based gaming though). That's something AE probably will never reach. I agree we should add tanks, but I also agree that it would cause you guys to demand 5000 other things.

That was cute, good try.
