do leap mines scale, in damage, with improved mine research? (anti matter, implosion, etc)?

Nope, leap mines already have the biggest warhead they can get... the engine takes up a lot of space that might otherwise have been devoted to a bigger warhead.

Leapmines are awsome against the AI players, and the locust.

That'd be the day when you research cloaking. And move your Minelayers up to CR size.


Even better if you get improved cloaking. :twisted:

Improved Cloaking Cloaked Mines Minelayer anyone?


Gotta try that - then probaly stop since I just broke the game against AI. ;)

Reminds me of old Pax Imperia - a slight bug (?) allowed you to place fighters on transports without researchin carriers, and bringing them to game way before AI players. Fun at first but after a while it it ruined the game - so you stopped doing it.

At least in SOTS you need luck on tech tree to pull this game breaker.

Has anyone been on recieving end of this from AI? Is it as game breaking as it sounds :?:
