is it possible to get planets to act like starbases? like building construction ships and fighters, firing if attacked and maybe process resources?

I know you could build a facility around a planet (much like you do with orbital mining platforms) just have orbital weapons platforms instead...

sorry ash, that is exactly what i was NOT thinking of. and giving the planet a construction ship odf and put it into the starting unit doesnt work because there are no hp or such that i can work with. i know there is a mod that lets the planets defend themselves - could i use that maybe?

my point is: as starting unit you would normaly have to have ab planet where the action comes from. it is planets that life develops from after all (and yes, i know all the episodes where they were colonised from space. please dont make that a hen and egg problem roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif). i just feel this way round it would be more realistic....

Yes you can, to amke this easy, just look at the Birth of the Federation MOD for A2, iam not sure if it is on A2 files, but it is over at armadafleetcommand (Earth is the starting unit for the feds ...... I believe that is what you were after!!!) :smokin::smokin:

There's a mod (or two) for that, as well. Search the site.
