Basically I hate troop ships because I hardly ever use them and hate having them around costing me money. So I usually end up building them and then discarding them. Now one day I had an idea to save some time and management. I decided that since new colonies are easy targets for pirate raids and are abysmally slow at recruiting until their population grows why not put troop bays on my colony ship? Needless to say I tried that and the soldiers that were on board my colony ship simply vanished as soon as the ship landed.

So does anyone know if there is a way to have troops that are loaded on a colony ship end up on the planet you use the colony ship to colonize instead of being destroyed?

It's a straight-forward idea with some good merit. I like it.
Have you considered asking it be implemented in the Master Wishlist Thread?

Don't bother with the wish list thread since they are working on DW2.

Hi folks,

We are indeed working on the next game in the series, but I can't share any details yet. I can say that it is a very major project for us all that has been getting a lot of effort and attention both from us and Elliot. We expect this to move DW forward in every respect, but even the internal test team haven't seen any details yet, so it will be a while before we can share anything publicly.

Regards,

- Erik


That was posted last September.

The colony ship gets cannibalized so forget about troops.

Ow. Where can I read updates on this development, or is that it??
8 months and nothing further shown about the upcoming DW2?
