assuming you go over that threshhold where your making more money than you spend, ships cost you time in later game. the only time i cared about the money is when i wanted to reinforce my fleet with as many units as possable and built the cheapist ship design ever.

As we are the immortal puller of strings hiding in our flying vocano lair, money can become minute in the big picture.

as soon as theres trade theres people that want stuff for free, and we cant all be slavers.

with the stealth structure tech you can have privateer bases, and you give them the same odds for ai rebellion to go from privateer to pirate over time. or maybe half as much ai is pretty high, probily make it a racial% of chance to go pirate, hiver and morrogii very low, terran and tarka med-hi, suul-zuul just has the intersteller house of slaves and waffles.

Well, that is assuming they actually pay for them.

Huh, just doing a bit of reading and apparently the USA can still legally issue letters of marque. I haven't seen them outfit a destroyer for anyone yet but I'll keep watching.

The Taliban navy would be slim pickings. Or maybe you could go after the Somali's zodiacs.

After 9/11 Ron Paul suggested the US issue letters of reprisal rather than invade Afghanistan.

Also known as a Letter of Marque and Reprisal, it authorizes privateers to attack enemy vessels.

except we have no tall grass in space. how about siege driver rounds in a gravity field?

Yeeeah. i realize those work together but aren't exactly ships, but you catch my drift.

If tall grass could put a giant hole in your battle-cruiser.

compared to sots prime, will interstellar drive speeds be the same in sots][ or will we get faster engine upgrades?
