Outposts in Your Campaign
Outposts are incredibly simple to put into your campaigns. All you have to do is add outpost to your MyTech list and bingo - the player can build an outpost by putting it into production in his Sun Workshop. I don't think the AIs can use outposts though you might want to try it out...
Here's an example of what you might normally have in your MyTech statement:
MyTech = "sunArcher;sunCannon;sunAviary"
Now to make the outpost a possibility the MyTech list would simply change to:
MyTech = "sunArcher;sunCannon;sunAviary;outpost"
Very simple indeed! Now you can have maps very far away and perhaps have a island hopping scenario where the player is fighting towards the AI and building outposts to secure the land. See what you can do!
