So just an idea I was thinking about the other day, what if on every strategic point, you could choose exactly what type of generators to build?
Right now, the types you can build are pre-determined by whatever the mapmaker put there, but if we could choose exactly what we want, we could tailor our strategy to how we want to play.
For example, just say I want to go for a tech rush, I could put power generators on all of my closest strategic points, forgoing req generators. On the other hand, say I want to get a powerful elite out quickly, I could stack elite generators, and allow my economy to suffer on the gamble that rushing the elite will turn the tide.
Of course, this might necessitate altering how much each type of generator gives (especially elite), but I think it would better allow players to play the way that they want to.
