Nowadays I just blow up the world destroyers because you can get them from pirate lost ship beacons once you have firepower greater than 120k. The last time I tried to repair one, it was still under construction at the fourth year.

Afaik, if u have the proper sensor on your ship, u can see how many damaged components are on the WD, and u can see it is slowly decreasing as your ship repairs it.

For me it used to take 1+ hours in real time (1x speed) until the WD is repaired... so I dare to say it is couple 10 years.

(im not sitting in front of the game, but if I recall well it also depends on the technology of your constructor - some techs increase the speed of construction so I think it will affect the repair speed of derelicts as well. )

But anyway, it will take looooong time till u get your WD. Dont wait for it, just play and once upon a time you will get it. Just keep an eye on it, guard your constructor with a minor fleet just in case.

By the time they get it repaired you can kill them with the current tech levels anyway, provided you have hyperdeny as it has a lot of armour. The only real use they have imo is to blow up the ancient guardian home world, because **** the ancient guardians.

Having just invaded them, I agree with this sentiment. That was a pita... it took me ~150 capital ships to deal with their fleets and clear off their homeworld enough to invade.

Following contains what may be spoilers to you, skip the rest of this post if you haven't completed the return of shakturi storyline:

In my latest game, using a start with old empires setting, by the time I defeated the Shakturi and gained the ancient guardian homeworld my world destroyer was finishing. That suggests in a normal start game the destroyer should be ready well before you are in a position to deal with the shakturi/guardians. The guardian homeworld space port had 30000+ firepower!

Back in the old days you could assign multiple construction ships to repair the WD and the repair was much quicker. Glad to see this was tweaked as I'm sure it was a human exploit (non-AI).

Well... I cant really agree, I really miss the possibility to assign more than 1 constructor for building projects. Or the possibility to build advanced constructors to be able to build faster.

IRL this would mean you can't hire more constructon workers when u build your house. Its just simply stupid and too artificial limiter in the game.

Your constructors will build faster if you research the more advanced construction techs.  Their limitation is yard speed.

Has anybody found out the optimal number of Construction yards to put on a Constructor/Base?? And how this relates to how many Plants you need of each Weapons, Engery, HIghtech plants?? none of this seems to be explained anywhere.. like how much - I currently have in a base E: 150k W: 150k H: 150k

Lets say I bump that up to 450k each.. does that really do anything?? and having 450k each with 2 construction yards compared to 10 construction yards with 450k each (E W H)

thanks.
