We realized that we had a lot of content about Sidius Nova out there, but nothing really explained the actual game play... So we're catching up =)
The tutorial covers the map part of the game and explains things like basic control, UI elements, movement, dividing fleets, resource collection, Warp Gate placement, Quantum Teleportation, as well as how to use probes.
There are a few more details that we don't mention about resource collection, i.e.:
- when the Mothership is located on a planet without Warp Gate,
its resource collection radius is 2 planets out
- when the Mothership is located on a planet that has a Warp Gate,
its resource collection radius is only 1 planet out
- a planet that is 2 jumps away from the Mothership and sends out miners
gives less resources than planets that are adjacent to the Mothership
Our goal for the map is to create a platform that provides enough options to give the player plenty of choices in terms of strategy.
We also set up our Forum here on indiDB if you want to share your ideas, give feedback or ask questions you have. Looking forward to seeing you there!
We'll be creating a separate tutorial for the battle part of Sidius Nova, and keep you updated here on indieDB.
