That's what your average base tab would look like.
This is the map of the universe in Astro Empires. Yellow squares are your bases, and blue circles are your fleet, you will see little grid squares, clicking these will bring you to a region, in regions there are little dots with numbers, Clicking these will bring you to systems, and then from there, to planets. If you want to move fleet you need to have the base coordinate by using the above method and then when looking at the planet bookmarking or copy and pasting the coordinate (explained later on).
A * tells you if debris is on a planet, in term credits that you collect with a ship called a recycler. The more *s there is the more debris (or derbs they are known as) there is there. White circles represent your fleet, yellow represent neutral (or enemies) fleet, and green is your guilds fleet.
When you have fleet it appears in the fleet tab, in this tab we have;
Code: Select all
Fleet Location Destination Arrival Size Comment
Fleet is the fleet name, clicking the fleet name and move will allow you to move the fleet, to do this you click the move tab after clicking the fleet name, pasting the coordinate (What you learned earlier) selecting the units to move, and clicking move. fighters, bombers, ion bombers and heavy bombers need "hanger" units such as frigates to transport them). Location tells you the of the
astro your on or you left. Destination tells you which astro your landing on, and arrival tells you when your due to land. The fleet size is made up by how much you spent building your fleet. And then you learned about the comment option.
Empire contains many tabs, if the tabs are maroonish orange it means you need to be upgraded to see them, otherwise you should be able to see it okay. Scanner subtab tells you of incoming fleet, yours and other players, technology tab tells you how much of a bonus (explained later) you have on your tech and your tech level. Units tells you about your units power, defense, how many credits you spent on that unit, how many of it you have, and what units and defenses you have unlocked. Trade tells you if your trade routes are active, how much econ your getting from them, how far away they are, and who they with. Economy is pretty much the same as the base tab, except at the end it tells you how many bases YOU can occupy, how many you have occupied, how long since you pillaged the base, and how much econ your getting from pillaging the bases. Fleets is a straight foward tab, it tells you what units your fleet on a planet is made up of. Structures is the same as the fleet tab except it tells you how many of a certain structure is on that base. Production tab is like a smaller scale tab of your production page on your base, it is handy for mass production. Events (main tab) tells you whats going on on your bases, ie construction, production research Capacities tab tells you how much credits you can construct something in an hour, its hard to explain but lets say your production capacity is 500, and you are building fleet costing 1000 credits, it will take 2hrs as you can build 500 credits worth of fleet on that base per hour, same applies for research and construction. Commanders decreases the time it takes to to this.
These are handy, they decrease/increase certain traits on were they are assigned, the higher their training, the better they operate.
You can join a guild by going on to its page and clicking and request to join it, and it is up to someone to let you in, or you can make and manage your own guild. Guilds often have rules to follow which make the game more fun to play with, when your in a guild you cannot attack fellow guild members and you can chat on the guild board.
You can write anything and everything in it.
Very handy for keeping track of bases you wanted to send fleet to, it saves the coord on the fleet movement screen also.
