Am I'm just cursed or did 1.04 change the loot table for discoveries? I own 33% of my radioactive planet but I did just find a single GR walker.

In the older versions, GR stuff was more abundant, or so it feels.

So: Cursed or loot table change?

I feel like it's just RNG. Some games I get heaps other times very little. Started a new game tonight and got a GR mobile shield unit ****ing Pog

Playing latest beta i had probably 10 different GR discovery's. one of them was one of those super tank guys that could burn a city defense by itself nearly.

The game before that in beta 7?, i had 1 GR discovery and got overrun by scavengers by turn 40. I had thought the same thing as you. Its just super random apparently.

When you generated the world, did the galactic military establish a base on the planet? if not, it seems that you'll see almost nothing, even if you conquer the entire world.

I'm too hugely suspect this. On planet with "liquid energy facilities" I get enormous amount of gravitic energy plants but very few GR units.

"The Republican military has housed a sizeable part of the sectorial divisions on the planet."

And it got "relocation of the Quadrant capital to the Planet".

And all I got is a walker and now Jumpjet Infantry. Well, at least I do not have any energy problem as it is abundant in geysirs and derelicts. That is probably better in the long run.

Keep in mind that you only find them in settlements so it is important to be the first player to control the free-folk towns.

Thanks for the reminder, but I learned that from some 'stralian guy some months ago, who did an a w e so m e job doing some deep analysis of this game.

I think a lot of it is a function of how populated the planet was, and if there was a correspondingly high amount of ruins to mine. A colony world with only 2.3 million people will probably house very few ruins. On the other hand, I've played on maps with ruins everywhere. By the end of the game I was acquiring a relic card every three to five turns.

This is such a ruins world, and I have found two Megacity-ruins with 12+ scaving points next to each other. I am living in an abundance of energy and automated factories with + x IP. With slow crawl research setting I cherish every small GR unit cause my own military is just a little bit ahead of the minor regimes. They really would make the difference here.

The world had 555M colonists during colonization phase.


I hope I can deliver an AAR!

Ruins don't deliver units I think someone said the villages do.

You are right, every free folk settlement has a chance to randomly deliver GR stuff or money or resources.

The first Major power that puts a unit next to a Free Folk settlement, has a chance to find something.
You may be able to find stuff in hex assets as well - but that one is inconsistent.

Note that getting either of two via a peace deal/vanishing enemy does not search the sites properly. You still need to send a unit there.
