Overall I don't think Construx are in bad shape. A few ideas below:
- If some units/mods/buildings end up being removed from the game (not likely): allow owners of that particular strux to sell it back to the system for TB based on complexity. I imagine whatever is removed will mostly be Simple complexity, so probably just make that 1 TB per strux. This only applies to whatever is removed completely from the game.
- On units, remove the “chance” of getting the max number of slots. Just set everything to 100% oversight with 100% chance of 1 (probes), 2 (drones), 4 (everything else) slots. In other words, you always get the max slots depending on the unit. I think Powerups helped with this, but I imagine, with the exception of probe builds, just about everyone uses 100% oversight on everything else, so just set it to 100 for everything, and give the max number of slots every time.
- I think build efficiency requirements and VAR chance are fine. Powerups kind of solved any problems with VARs.
- Somewhat unrelated, but it probably would be a good idea to go through the mod construx and mod requirement for unit builds for balance. For example, I've always thought the Death Lance mod was kind of ridiculous to build.
ANY OTHER THOUGHTS OR IDEAS ARE APPRECIATED!
