Now that you have gotten your colonies started and you are starting to expand. I thought we should go over some of the more advanced buildings and features of the game to further enhance your gameplay.
REPLACING INEFFICIENT BUILDINGS
First things first you need to go through and start to get rid of some of your original buildings and upgrade them with better ones such as:
Setting Up a Good Amount of Waste StorageIts always a good thing to level up Interdimentional Rifts and Ravines so they can store alot of waste just in case you get scowed (trash dumped on your planets) or a bleeder starts using your resources and turns everything to garbage. The more waste storage you have the better. As soon as your storage fills up then it will start affecting your happiness of the planet that is being attacked. If your happiness goes negative and is negative enough then someone can use spies to try to take your planet from you.Spy DefenseYour security ministry is a good building to upgrade to help the effectiveness of your spy defense. When someone sends spies at you you wanna be able to stop whatever hostile acts they are trying against you. There is a bonus given to all spies defending on their planets which also helps. Besides that, training your spies is a great idea to help avoid possible issues going forward.Increase SAWsSAWs or Shields Against Weopons are your first line of defense against incoming ships. Getting several on a planet or several on multiple planets (Ring of Fire) is the best way to go to make the SAW defense more effective. Either way in this case, the more.. the better.Increase Ships Protecting Each of your PlanetsAs you are developing ships you start out with drones and weaker fighters. At this point you should think about scuttling or selling those lower quality ships for higher ones. Get some higher level fighters and sweepers. I would suggest also having some scows at each planet. If not to get rid of waste where you may otherwise not be able to, it can serve as insurance so if lots of waste is being dropped on you that you can try to get rid of some of it before it damages you too much.
