Hi.

After playing the impressive demo, a couple things nag me: do enemies continually respawn without limit? Not being a young man anymore, I find the constant pressure a bit off-putting.

Also, am I correct in assuming that you can't combine multiple instances of researching and building, or rely on your crew to research/build/repair at their own discretion?

Thank you for your time.

Enemies
Minor units are released by the end of zone boss as he sits hidden somewhere within your current zone, as long as he lives he will keep making them. As they are created within his node, all enemies are funneled into the zone from one position, they don't just appear everywhere, you can use this to your advantage.

He also carries enough resources to make a limited number of mining barges, but making one takes the boss a long time.

The zone boss creates all major units, but he can only make these if there are mining barges active in the zone gathering resources for him. If there are no mining barges he wont make any major units.

Therefore: killing mining barges reduces the enemy output of the boss and also reveals his location. Killing the boss stops any further enemy units entering the zone.

Resource Management
You can research and build at the same time, but you can't queue up items, fueling the forge is hard enough as it is. Games such as C&C where you need to make hundreds of different items very quickly need sophisticated management, but Starscape doesn't have such an urgent need for production. Its more about planning and spending your resources wisely.

Tip: when you take out a major unit it will drop reusable equipment, the bigger the unit the more equipment is dropped. Its worth getting this stuff as even if you don't currently need it you can pump it back into the forge and turn it into raw resources again.

Thanks for a helpful reply.
