So the Galaxy Gun operates like a Novalith Cannon just that it destroys planets instead?

I don't know what kind of "restrictions" you can place other than increasing the cooldown timer, "anti-matter/resource" costs, and tactical slot usage.

Well the Galaxy Gun is a gun that shot projectiles through hyperspace and destroyed the planet. So yeah, it's basically a Kostura/Novalith/Deliverance that destroys the planet.

We don't really want any other restrictions on it anyways.

Never been a fan of simply destroying planets.  Just never understood it.  I want to conquer the planet, not obliterate it.  Now, in this game, it only destroys the civilization on the planet, so you can still conquer it, but...meh.  Not a fan of world-destroying weapons.

People like to see things go boom and scorched earth policy can be a good strategy if you just can't be bothered to deal with defening it.

I'm not going to say there aren't exceptions...but you can always alpha strike a planet that you need obliterated.  And if you set up correctly, you can WATCH the carnage on the planets surface as they run around screaming and dying.  WAY more satisfying than a Death Star or Galaxy Gun ever could be.

The truth is invading a planet is not cheap destroying it with just one missile is far more cheaper and if you are playing agains someone (not the IA) and you have the galaxy gun, he would probably be scared and will attack the galaxy gun no matter what is defending it. In other words he'll make mistakes.

Exactly. If the enemy is depending on certain planets for income, with one stroke you can cripple their economy. If you destroy key planets, chances are the enemy will get moral lowered and you might get a moral boost. Chokepoints can change from a planet held by a hostile faction to a messy free-for-all that can be more easily advanced through than said planet.

A question: Will there be a way to get Katana Dreadnaughts?

I can think of several ways that it could be done if they so choose, so I wouldn't doubt if they want them in it that they can.

People have already modded in ship graveyards into Sins; it wouldn't be that hard to make a scramble for the Katana fleet type map.

I haven't seen destroyable planets in any mod for sins yet.  This would be new ground for this team and pretty impressive.
Did you see that?  Know what that cost?  $58,000.  I mean, what a waste.  It wasn't even funny.  That's $58,000 that could have gone to curing leukemia.  Or.  muscular dystrophy.  Or... what does Michael J. Fox have?  That.  Alright, let's watch some damn cartoons.

Impressive to you and only you fans. Most of the stuff you can do is stuff that more experienced Sins modders know about, but haven't actually put into practice.

This game sounds as if it has a lot of potential for modding.

Technically, "destroying" planets is possible, but it is not possible to change their mesh. Stripped to the Core can destroy planets, however, as it works via a player manually scuttling a planet, it cannot be worked into an ability as there's no way to trigger scuttling via a buff. Though I wouldn't be surprised if the ICW team figures something out... Perhaps making it uncolonizable for good along with a fancy particle effect could work.
