Yeah.  The real issue with those domes is that they cost time and production to produce, so your growth ramp is MUCH faster on planets you can colonize without domes.  This is also true for Ocean planets, although my recollection is that the Ocean Platforms don't have nearly the cost of domes.

Just to be clear on the game mechanics, domes allow people.  People then allow production buildings.  Different planet types have different production chains, and some techs allow you to skip some build prerequisites.  I'm hazy on the specifics, as it's been six months since I played the game.

The other good reason to colonize sub-optimal planets sooner or later is to prevent the enemy from getting refueling points.
And those Pz IVGs are none too historical, neither...

SS4 wears its video-gamey-ness on its sleeve. It's definitely fun, but not the place to go for strict fidelity to historical detail...

I think it was NZ that used one of the CM1 games.  I suspect its some kind of update to that, or similar to that.

I think one of the main issues is losing a programmer and and the marketing guy who did a lot of other stuff.  I think they might be back to the original team from late CM1 days, not counting MaddMatt having moved on also.

Thanks RyanE. You are my source of cm updates.
I am just glad they are still active and working on new stuff.
Must say given what he says is still to be done on CMSF his estimate of early 18 seems hugely optimistic but then he usually is with his estimates. I would say back end of 18 more likely.

I noticed a defence contract in there so perhaps explains to some extent their slow down......

Still good news in any event.

I'm not a fan at all of platformer-type games, but I really like the looks of this.

I don't have this yet but think more Contra boss battles and less Contra platforming (although there are some platforming stages) basically it's mostly about boss battles.

I bet he'll still buy two in a day or so, though.
