Combat

Space combat occurs between two ships, or between a ship and a planet. It is important to note that only two combatants will engage at a time. Large fleets which fight will destroy each other one ship at a time, with each victorious ship fighting again immediately. So battle order is extremely important. Battle order is usually determined using friendly codes.

Combat will occur between two objects at the same x,y co-ordinate if any one of the following conditions is met:

1. One object is a ship with its mission set to "Kill", the owner races are not allied, and the two objects do not have matching friendly codes.

2. One object is a ship with its Primary Enemy set to the race owning the other object, the two races are not allied, and the two objects do not have matching friendly codes. Note one exeption: if a ship is cloaked, it will not attack enemy planets.

3. One object is a planet with an aggressor friendly code "ATT", and the other object is a non-allied ship with fuel.

4. One object is a planet with an aggressor friendly code "NUK", and the other object is a non-allied ship.

Starbases do not fight separately, but can enhance the combat capabilities of the planet they orbit.

Combat is resolved using three weapon types: beams, torpedoes and fighters.

Losing planets are never destroyed in combat, only captured. Losing starbases are never captured, only destroyed (cf. ground combat). Losing ships are captured if the crew are all killed before hull damage reaches 100%, otherwise they are destroyed. Different beam and torp types have different hull/crew kill ratios which will affect which of these happens first - see your ship list documentation for details.

If you successfully destroy a ship in combat, you'll receive a message like

(-f0439)<<< Fleet Message >>>

The Bringer Of Death ID # 439
has destroyed the
Empire ship
Ship 20 ID # 20
( 1657 , 2294)

while you also get a message, if your ship dies in combat:

(-f0211)<<< Fleet Message >>>

HarmlosesSchiff ID # 459
Has been destroyed by the
Trödeljan ID # 211
a Gorn
starship.
( 2557 , 2694)
