I am guessing the title got peeps to look here! LOL :>

Ok here is the layout... 3 planets in the sector lvl 6s. Ore max is 7,500,000 and fig max is 5,000,000 and there is 2,000,000 defensive fighters in the sector. Figs may not be maxed, but shields might be.
Anyway to look without being podded/killed?

Ships avaliable for me to use; are ICs with 400k figs and ISS like ship with 200k figs/photon capable.

So someone please tell me what I could do and such....
Im a noob when it come to this part of the game.

a big TY in advance!

Prob the best thing to do would be to do a foton xport enter with a script or macro. if the sector cannons are on your prob going to get podded anyways. but at least you'll know. there are really no ways to take planets like that with out taking some pods. good luck.

curious is it possible to photon xport and enter AND also tow another ship in with me?

and if I'm in a ship that has photons, why xport at all, just ptorp and enter sector?

Mombot/Zedbot Command "PXEL", but it won't tow a ship.

Mombot/Zedbot Command "PEL", and I assume this one will tow a ship if you have one locked first, but I haven't tried it.

Sometimes the best moth ship can't carry photons, so that is the reason for the Xport.

Type "Help Offense" in Mombot or "Help Combat" in Zedbot for a full list of offensive scripts, which includes almost a dozen Photon scripts.

Once you are in the sector, Mombot KAZI command can help you finish off the invasion! (You can also run KAZI as an external command in Zedbot, but I don't see a native script)

You can be podded twice, third time you'll be kicked out the game till midnight.

Worth parking a ship just off fed space to get back in if it's a game with not many people in it. Then you can go in with a cheap ship just before midnight, get your moth and enter after midnight nice and safely.

I assume those 1mil hits are atmosphere damage, so what is the sector damage?

If sectors are low(ish) then pick a ship with high offensive odds and take out those 2 mil sector figs. Once you get sector control you can move in a planet, load up on figs, and keeping hitting exit/enter till cannons are drained down to a manageable level.

Sector hits use 3 ore for each 1 damage. So it might be worth draining the ore at sector level.

Depends on a bucket load of factors, like is the person who owns the planets even in the game?

TY Hammer for the tips...

Sector damage was much smaller, like 40K i think.

its an Alien maxed out planet, so starts with 10Mil fuel I think.
don't know for sure.

I will use your advise on getting a planet in the sector, I have the sector figs down to just 50K offensive figs.

Any other tips you can think of?
and TY, it has been awhile since I have tried to invade! TY for the advice
