What to buy with the Other Fund

Postby SCC on Sat 17 Aug 2019 00:53

So I'm trying to figure out what to spend my Other Fund on, I've already out 16 DD with X split between two designs out of my Survey fund, along with 6 ammo colliers. I'm buying a bunch of st with my Battle Fund, along with an ammo depot. I'm thinking of buying a mobile shipyard, but I'm not too sure, if I can't come up with something I'll probably dump the whole lot into FT to raise income.

That's what I did. I started out with a rather healthy government Pool income (103.5 MCr) already in place on turn 1.

I'd suggest at least one mobile (SYM) on a DD-FT hull. It's going to be a terrible design, slow and inefficient, but it'll give you some off-planet construction capacity right off the bat. It'll let you do remote repairs, build space stations, and if you give it Atmospheric Capability (should be inherent with a FT hull) then you can also use to to build planetside facilities if needed (this great for setting up some cheap and cheerful PDCs or the like wherever you wish).
