I would like to chime in that I disagree with how the economy works via linking things back to your territory.
I'm indifferent with the current arrangement that you can gather resources/have a secured route to do so thanks to your allies. But you should have a secured route back to your own space first. So for the Delest to use the Valkyrie Shipyards, they can do so thanks to the UGC supply lines (read: resources. The UGC would be the only ones to benefit from the generate resources at this time) but do make use of it with their own resources/add to their own resource pool. They should have a link to their home systems. (that gets a bit complicated. Simplified version of, secure both sides of the lance. Works better)
So basically, would need to secure the lances to Ihefulian and Serpens, both lances being in Aldebaran.
But I guess on the other hand, as the system is under their control (is it?, colour only changes on the refinery and not the entire system?) you can kinda write that off saying they only need to secure the lance in Serpens.
I just read it more like how the CRF captured the Uuni Lance. We have both sides secure, rather than the Aldebaran lances which are "One-Way".
Let's see if I can summarise.
- Captured locations within an enemy system should have secured lances back to home territory for usage.
-- Marked by both sides of lances being secured in friendly colours. Allied lances also fulfil this. Minus the natural risk if your ally is no longer your ally. Severing the supply line.
- In the current turn example, for the DD to use the Valykire yards, they need to have the Ihefulian and Serpens lances in Aldebaran secure. If they only secure the Serpens lance, then they can access the yards but lose the supply line if the DD/UGC allience was terminated (theoretically. For the example)
- Both sides of lance should be secured for civilian traffic/resource traffic. Rather than just one side. If only one side is secured, say the Serpens System side. Resources could be carried back to friendly territory but income taffic cannot so production cannot be used? Or such. Adds additional complexity over basic. Secure both sides.
With current wording, for Harcon as the example
Harcon Shipyards has no direct friendly/neutral starlance route leading to a DD planet, facility cannot be used for repair and produces no resources until a route is secured.
Makes the above irrelevant again as a neutral lance functions the same as a friendly lance. It just makes more sense in my head to have both lances (sides of) secure first, rather than just the one.
