Well, you could allso put units up like this: fighters are small squads then, frigates slightly bigger ones and cruisers large ones, it doesn’t really matter what time of unit it is yet, it’s just a size standard.
So you could do with different squads, you could put a large squad of fighters in the battle by
spending a cruiser ammound of points on them spend a smaller ammound and you could choose between something like a frigate size squad etc.
What types of units aught to be in the game well, I think it should be race dependent.
I’d immagine they all have an equivalent of a tank/walkers and infantry unit/squad an artillery unit. a heavy weapons platform,
perhaps you could give em spy planes to scout out and give better aferages to the unit’s fighting in the range of those scout unit’s.
Anyways, then there’s anti air unit’s in the form of air to air and ground to air and then there should allso be air to ground…
Now to put that into form, we could pick either a uniform means of drawing units, or they’d have to make a unique unit style every time round…
Allso, squadrons would have to have different specs, per race, like the ships have…that’d be great.
How about bases/ cities/ defence installations? Think about it, would there be bases on the map, or behind it like: ‘loose this battle and this and this factory will be lost’/ loose hitpoints.
What would the Trade Federation unit’s look like? (very hardy?)
-blue? with the usual robust appearence?
What would the Rebels unit’s look like?
-gray, axe swinging units? infantry with axes?
-tanks that have a heavy metal like look?

- lots of 8 legged infantry units.
What would the Empire unit’s look like?
-cyborg like, with lot’s of shields am I right?
What would the Order unit’s look like?
- heavy red shield pieces, nice red flags,

What would the Nomad units look like?
-Bigger tanks, bigger squads bigger everything?
What would the pirates look like!?
-spider like units? with lot’s of web shooting weapons?

What’s your imtake ont this readers?
But perhaps I’m making it too difficult, perhaps there should just be a two sided version of space invaders! (in addition to a gratuitous land battles game?)
With pre deployed defence towers, fighter squadrons, fighter hangar bases, floating hangar platforms and satalites?
Ah, lets just leave this one to Clifsky
