Yep! And to spot those you either have to be in orbit or even get boots on the ground. So PDCs can be VERY stealthy.


I guess the question is how small can the object be to house an PDC, and when you need an AF instead.


As I recall, you can make PDCs up to 500 HS in size.

I am more wondering how large does the rock need to be to qualify for PDCs

That's part of what we were talking about at the beginning... it has to be on the hexside of a planet or a moon. That's the qualifier. If you build it on an asteroid, it's an asteroid fort.

Have made it to the "design the initial ships" stage of this, after which for some reason I always get stuck.

Do you know why?

If you are having trouble getting everything started, you should start a topic and we'll help you get through it. I say start a new one so that someone else who needs help can find it easier since this topic is about PDCs :)
