Due to lack of significant ModDB response, I will take the question to Filefront. Is having a population value of 1 for EVERY unit (squadron, corvette, frigate, capital, hero) a good idea? If you have a better idea, or a reason it is a good idea, please say why or how. Thank you, Galaxy of Chaos Mod Team

accidentally selected yes thinking you were talking about land, in which i'd say that's fine. however, it's unbalanced. 25 squadrons of say, x-wing are worth the same as 25 squadrons of ISDs. want to tell me which will win? it should be obvious...

Agreed Keyser. Unless your willing to offset the very high imbalance by significantly increasing the cost of a particular unit the it won't be worth the 1 population value for ALL space units.

even then, it's imbalanced. once you have a certain amount of income, it becomes difficult to spend all of. eventually, you'll be able to spend however much, on whatever you want, as a you'll have hundreds and thousands of credits.

1=lag.

Non pop caps=more lag and more errors.

Specially when your computer is very slow.

I remember one comment from you critizing other mods where you spoke about big lag, I can not imagine how you can play without pop cap.;)

lol, true, depends on how good your PC is I guess, I just got a new one, and my old one has been reworked, so eh, oh well. No cap is bad I guess, but ever unit = 1 is not a bad one...?

Yea, the idea of 1 or a simply fighter or bomber squad is very stupid.... it will be fun to have as many of them as we want! :D

its a bad idea. I really wouldn't do it that way. it will cause lag for sure.
