Having experimented, I am certain I have no idea how to play the Unn Pirates.
As I understand it you start with 3 fleets each consisting of an ark, 3 sabres and a base, so you can start 3 colonies for various things.
Presumably I can make up most of my ship costs by mining, but with a total population of 3 on separate planets, the population growth will be minimal so I clearly need to find other methods of income.
- Am I correct I should be approaching other races to extort money and technology? If so, how should I go about this? Going to war against the hoon yon, threatening them, then extorting them didn't work at all, and I had no space marines to occupy a planet.
- Should I be trying to grow the population? If so how? The population will not grow in less than about 30 turns and 20 after that if I'm lucky (these are optimistic guesses).
Please let me know if there's something I'm missing.
