It finally happened. I found a system that cannot support life.
With only a 7 for food production, it cannot feed 100 colonists who will require 10 food. So my fighters will simply orbit this system instead.
The game continues as I expand when I have some phone time.
In practice, a lot happens in the john. When I’m alone cooking. A few minutes until the next meeting. When sitting in traffic at a standstill. Gaming time is expanding and I can’t complain about that.
I have about 187 stars and 600k people, 55th place overall. I’m as safe as I will ever get from attack in a PvP game being both large and remote.
