this is dumb, this is broken. No one thought this through at all. So the AI gets everything unlocked and you have to find all of your tech? orbital basic tech doesn't have orbital fabber to no tp dropping with that, you have to drop a fabber and build it. they can and will nuke you at 20 mins and you can possibly not get t2 tech to even be able to counter it. who passed off on this and said "oh yeah, put this in the game." don't even try and give me the "just restart it's rouge-like" bs. no wonder the playerbase is so small.
