By now you have a steady production of resources, some buildings, some unitsโ€ฆ

Let's continue by maxing out your Mines to produce as much as possible and get a nice and steady income.

If you still haven't maxed out all your planet slots, do it now, this is how I have mine:

๐Ÿญ Buildings (100/100):

1 ๐Ÿ“ก Radar (Automatic Scan)
20 โ›ฐ Crystal Mine
20 ๐ŸŒ‹ Metal Mine
10 ๐ŸŒž Solar Panel
5 ๐Ÿ— Starport (Build ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฒ Liberator)
1 ๐Ÿฆ Trade Beacon
1 ๐Ÿงช Engineering Bay (Research โš™๏ธ Productionยฒโต)
1 ๐Ÿฌ Technology Center (Research ๐Ÿ”ฌ Technologyยณยฒ)
8 ๐Ÿ”‹ Battery
15 ๐Ÿ›ซ Hangar
20 ๐Ÿข Warehouse

Open the Settings

Go to ๐Ÿ”ฃ More and then โš™ Settings to customize your strategy further.

Don't stop researching

Keep researching, both in the ๐Ÿฌ Technology Center and in the ๐Ÿงช Engineering Bay, as new Research specializations unlock, you should choose your strategy going forward: offensive, defensive, resourceful, etc.

The first levels of each are quick and cheap, so go ahead and level up a few of everything.

Know your surroundings

It is vital that you explore for a while and get to know your surroundings, so keep exploring until you know at least 20-30 nearby planets.

You may not have used it yet, but the /destinations command is pretty awesome, it shows you a map of all known planets, the bigger the circle, the higher the score.

For new explorations, don't send more than 1 ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ด Observer, there's no need to send multiple since we only want to learn where everyone else is, and hopefully find a Boss for later in the game. If you keep encountering strong planets that compromise and destroy your ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ด Observers, then send more than one at a time to increase your Intelligence Level and reduce the chances of getting caught.

Remember to keep a few ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡ด Observers at base to increase your Intelligence Level and block curious enemies from discovering your assets. Read how Intelligence works to understand why I am saying this.

Join a guild

๐Ÿ”ฑ Guilds are a great way to keep your planet safe, once you join one, ask if they have a Telegram channel so you can communicate through there or use the guildmsg command. Some guilds prefer their members to specialize in different abilities for better teamwork, check their descriptions.

If you are too far away from your guild members, you can try teleporting although note that you may need to do it a few times until you find an acceptable spot.

Strength is in numbers

Get a few ๐Ÿ— Starports and build the strongest units you can until you max out all your ๐Ÿ›ซ Hangars. It is better to have 100 Scouts than 10 Liberators so first go for quantity, then for quality. You want to maximize the number of ๐Ÿ›ซ Hangars all the time, so any building that is not strictly necessary will need to go as soon as you run out of Unit space.

If you constantly lack a particular resource, use the ๐Ÿฆ Trade Beacon to swap resources with other players.

As you grow your fleet, you will either need more Hangars or deconstruct weak units, it is up to your strategy to decide which buildings to demolish and which to keep.

๐Ÿš€ Raid

Now that we are relatively strong, start raiding for extra resources to grow much faster than just with resource production.

Sleepy players for easy targets: note down their score and check it again after a few hours.

You will not be able to attack very low level players so keep exploring as your score increases to find similar-level players.

๐Ÿ”† Steal overflow resources

If you don't want to risk your units in a ๐Ÿš€ Raid, you can send ๐Ÿ›ฐ Explorations to planets that have overflow resources orbiting around the planet. You can quickly see planets that have overflow debris by opening the ๐ŸŒ• Destinations menu.

Keep improving...

As you unlock more Technology levels keep optimizing your buildings and units, demolish those ๐Ÿ—ผ Light Lasers and build โ›ฉ Heavy Lasers, deconstruct ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ฌ Scouts and build ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡น Wraiths, etc.
