There is problem with tick rate. If tick duration is high then the game is very slow. If it is low then one can loose a game during a night’s sleep. So here are some ideas how to solve it:
- automatically pause the game during night hours ( a game setting )
- bot takes over if player is afk (player setting)
- player can set up even more sophisticated rules how to defend systems. Destroy gates automatically if enemy fleet attacks. Enable defense-mode for a carrier and assign systems to defend against attacks to a carrier. If an attack is detected the fleet try to defend those systems.
