I’m a fairly new player with about a week of experience in this game. I am playing quite many games at the same time so there has been some action already. I do like to plan, calculate and optimize things so I think this game will suit me well.
Now the actual question. In what order things happen when the turn “ticks” forward? This is interesting when things are about to happen at the same time which seems quite common. Mainly the order of the following things is what interest me.
- Ship production on planets
- Science production on planets
- Money production on planets (if the turn is production turn)
- Checking if research is ready
- Experimentation (if production turn)
- Banking (if production turn)
- Carrier movement
So if I finish weapons research, move ships and produce on the planet at the same time while enemy arrives there and it happens to production turn and I get another level of weapons from experimentation (yeah, unlikely scenario but still) when would the combat happen? Would I have the same weapons level as in previous turn or one or two levels higher at the combat?
Also another question just for clarity. The game is turn based game with 8 hours jumps. Does it do 8 x one hours turns in a row or one 8 hours turn when everyone has returned their turns?
