Unit

From Planetary Annihilation Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Units are the mobile armed forces under a player's command. The units available to the player are the same regardless of whatever commander they choose. Units are divided into four general types: Vehicle, Bot, Air, and Naval, and further into three unit types: Fabrication, Scout, and Combat. Combat units come in a variety of roles for dealing with different types of enemies.

Currently, the core number of units are implemented, with more specialized units to be added in the future. Uber has stated their goal is around 100 units.

[edit] Tech tiers

There are two technology tiers. This is represented in the 'basic' structures that can be built by the commander and other 'basic' construction units ; and also 'advanced structures'. The advanced structures can only be built by the same Types basic construction unit (e.g. basic aircraft fabricator can build an advanced aircraft factory.

[edit] Commanders

Commanders are powerful units representing the leader of a player's armed forces; they are, in essence, the player's in-game avatar. Commanders are also the only unit that can both attack and construct, making them very ubiquitous. A player will lose the game if they lose their commander unit. The commander is also the first unit to be given to a player at the start of the game, and can not be created any other way.

[edit] Vehicles

Vehicles are specifically wheeled or tracked vehicles that are made from the Vehicle Factory. Compared to bots, they are slower and more expensive, but have better armor and firepower.

[edit] Bots

Bots are legged units made from a Bot Factory. Bots are cheap, close-combat specialists that are best used for fighting in tight spaces.

[edit] Air

Air units are able to fly over any terrain and can move very quickly, but have less armor than other units. They are best used for scouting, swarm attacks, and bombing runs. Their biggest weakness besides enemy fighters are dedicated AA units.

[edit] Naval

Naval Units were added into the game once funding on Kickstarter reached US$1,100,000. As the name implies, they are water-based units. While generally more expensive than land units, they also carry considerably more firepower, especially the advanced units. The submarine class in particular is one of the few stealth-type units available. Also note that sea fabrication units are capable of creating unique sea-based equivalents of the normal land-based structures.

[edit] Orbital

Orbital Units were added into the game once funding on Kickstarter reached US$1,300,000. To reach the orbital level, orbital units need to be launched from an Orbital Launcher.
