Structs Battleground Prototype

Greetings, aspiring galactic trailblazer! Today, we’re delving into an essential aspect of Structs: it’s time to explore the vibrant energy economy that powers our expansive universe and your interstellar adventures.

In the world of Structs, energy is the lifeblood of your operations. It powers your Structs — the advanced sentient machines that mine and refine on your planets, defend you from enemy attacks, and conduct raids on enemy outposts. The source of this essential energy? A rare substance called Alpha Matter.

In our universe, Alpha Matter is as precious as it sounds. This stuff is the fuel for your Power Plants and Reactors, which are the crucial components that produce the energy your Structs need. You’ve got choices to make — do you use your Alpha Matter in the safer Reactors shared amongst your guild, or do you risk it in the more efficient Power Plants local to your planet? It’s a balancing act that that will challenge you day to day.

Every action, from mining Alpha Ore to launching a fleet, requires energy. Your growth, and the ultimate power of your guild, will all depend on how well you can utilize the energy generated both in enterprise and in conflict. This means Alpha Matter itself becomes a valuable trading commodity too; opening the door to endless possibilities for enterprising players. So, immerse yourself in our cosmos, orchestrate your might and resources, and write your own history of enterprise and empire.

Stay tuned as we continue to unpack the layers of our game in future posts. In the meantime, keep your reactors hot and your ambitions hotter!‍
