I think a multiplier system (you can apply to each world) for cost of each unit "brought up" could help as it just seems a bit arbitrary that everyone pays the same for the different unit levels regardless. Otherwise though seems a good idea, we'll have to play the beta and see how it works out in practice.

Will we be able to build multiples of these facilities: If I need 50,000 men to man an ISD and my faciliies dictate 1,000 naval personnel a month..that math doesn't work. If I can invest, I can build another 9 of these facilities and can man the ISD in 5 months instead of 50 months.

 

Also, I assume this won't change the nature of military training actions (building better academies and training systems to get high personnel levels)? Or are those levels kaput?

There won't be anymore Military Levels to my knowledge.  This was supposed to replace those but since we have to give everyone almost every academy type its more of a "repeal and don't replace" option.

So it is automated. Otherwise you would need to send in an action which takes up the avatar's time and would have an arbitrary completion time. With the facility, the player can recruit and train troops all by himself. 

Well no, training troops in an automated system has arbitrary completion times, Avatar assigned completion times are rooted at least part in fact through research of training both in SW and IRL.

Yeah, you can build more training facilities. They will have a cost in TPC, but one of your planets civilian industries would be able to make you a new ones. Or at least that's how I think it would work.

 

You can improve your personnel ratings through training actions like you used to.

I made special training facilities as a blanket for all the random special units. Like Hutt Warriors or Mandalorian Super Commandoes or Wookiee Beserkers or whatever.

I also changed the name of asymmetrical warfare to unconventional warfare, since asymmetrical warfare doesn't have to be non-conventional.

I assume "Entechment" is suposed to be "Entrenchment"?

 

I also see basic and kaminoan cloning, so there are just two? Sorry "basic" seems to imply to my mind there should be more, since Kaminoan is kind of a special case.

 

Oh and now that I'm thinking about it, this seems to cover military capabilities as technologies, what about techs pertaining to your industries allowing you to build factories for vehickles starfighters and drydocks for capital vessels.

You want an intermediate cloning technology added?

 

We did military doctrines first. The groundwork is there to tie industries to technology, and hopefully we can get it implemented.

I guess it just seemed odd to me . . . is Kaminoan cloning generally researchable by anyone?

 

I mean shouldn't it be unique to kamino?

Kaminoan cloning is basically cloning with a slower age acceleration to better mature the clones.

Well some facilities can do a lot more, 3,000, 5,000, 8,000, etc... Just remember one of the main differences with the new system is that there is no more maximum TPC cap. I don't think any facility has over 8000 TPC in it so an ISD is still going to take a couple months at max output.

Kuat's orbital array has 30,000 units each, Mon Cals do 12,000 and the Corellian models do 10,000.

No what I meant was it seemed liek Marcus was implying Kaminoan cloning was as simple as makign hte clones age slower (thusly explaining the classes of "Basic" and "Kaminoan" cloning), whne you think about it I suppose it is an assumption to an extent, but that's never been the impression I got from the concept of the Kaminoan cloning industry.

I don't think you can research Kaminoan Cloning unless you do an action where the government of Kamino does if for you somehow.

Spaarti Technology is a derivative of Khommite civilian cloning. Kaminoan is a derivative of similar cloning techniques. While specific techniques of the cloning process are trade secrets the basic process behind them are fairly easy to grasp. I would assume Gene Templates and techniques behind the genetic manipulation are more closely guarded than the methods behind making the cloning tanks themselves.
