|0001915||AI War||Suggestion - New Unit Ideas - Golems||Dec 8, 2010 6:33 am||Dec 18, 2010 6:59 pm|
|Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0001915: Assimilator Golem|
|Description||Humans aren't the only race that have learned to integrate alien technology with their own. The assimilator golem can swallow a friendly structure and after a period of digestion can then operate as a mobile version of the structure.|
This has some cross over with the Neinzul mothership vessels, but becoming mobile starship constructors or even experimental fabricators would be a powerful ability!
Ideally the golem would also be able to swallow other structures such as zenith power-generators, black hole generators and anything else where their ability to attack isn't their main purpose. If a structure would cause an AIP increase after scrapping, I believe that the AIP should still go up.
The main downsides to using this vessel, other than the cost of resurrecting it in the first place, is that the golem self-attritions as normal and you lose the structure it swallows if the golem is destroyed or you want to assimilate a new structure.

Well it would surely add an interesting tweak to the game, but I'm not really convinced we need it. This sounds like potentially becoming a "building transport ship".
I don't really oppose the idea, but neither do I support it. Lets see how the rest of the community reacts.

I find this idea insanely cool because it gives the player an incredible amount of options which all come with their consequences.
What structures could be swallowed should be limited though. A mobile Grav Drill is pretty powerful for example, maybe OP.
Anyways I suggest that the golem is very slow.

|Any OP structure tends to come with a downside though. For instance the gravity drill affects ALL units, so that would include the golem. If you choose to carry around a utility structure like a gravity drill or black hole generator then you're missing out on an opportunity to take a factory... and if you come across a fabricator you really want to get mobile (<3 speed boosters) you then have to lose the carried structure.|
