Predicting B drones
I noticed the drones had to quickly switch from probe team to rec commons last turn due to a B-drone.
I believe figured out how the B-drones work. There's a gobal list of cities. Depending on where your base is in the list the cities gets a drone.
The list works as follows.
If the first beaucracy limit is 7, (for the map googlie made it is).
* Then on the 8th base, the bases 7,14,21,28,35 in the list will get drones.
* When the 9th base is planted bases 6,13,20,27,34 in the list will get drones.
* When the 10th base is planted bases 5,12,19,26,33 in the list will get drones.
As you see the pattern continues until we get 14 bases. Then I assume on the 15th base we get the 2nd set of beauracy drones.
So technically it's possible to build 13 bases that are free of beauracy drones. However that would require that your 13 bases are in the base order of 8,16,24,32,40,48.... etc in the gobal list of bases.
The problem is it requires a bit of work figuring out what number each base has as it also depends on the bases that other factions plant.
If the drones would be willing to give the build dates of each of their cities we might able to predict when certain bases will generate B drones.
The hive (2102) - BDrone level 7
Voltairegrad (2106) - BDrone level ?
Kommuniza City (2107) - BDrone level ?
Jamski Clove (2119) - BDrone level ?
Feckin Cheeky Tower (2123) - BDrone level ?
HongHu KongHu (2124) - BDrone level ?
Rokossovky (2129) - BDrone level 7
Googliegrad (2129) - BDrone level 1
BDrone level 1 - A Bdrone is generated on the 14th base.
BDrone level 2 - A Bdrone is generated on the 13th base.
BDrone level 3 - A Bdrone is generated on the 12th base.
BDrone level 4 - A Bdrone is generated on the 11th base.
BDrone level 5 - A Bdrone is generated on the 10th base.
BDrone level 6 - A Bdrone is generated on the 9th base.
BDrone level 7 - A Bdrone is generated on the 8th base.
Since your turn is right before us, if we have planted bases consecutively the BDrone level can be predicted if we know the BDrone level of one of the previous bases.
Living Standards (date???) - Bdrone level 7
Anyway if you don't have the time you don't need to particate in my Bdrone mapping project.
