I'm pretty sure none of the players here knows how to drive a chariot either.Wanna bet?
If anything, if there are turrets, it means there are no factories churning out reinforcements.You've never played an RTS have you?
Basic design strategy is you bury your primary outpost behind your defenses, and as you branch out you can start using more and more defensive measures until the area is secured then you simply rebuild those defensive protections into supply generators.
For example, a planetoid can only support six bases could be built in a more defensive design. You build four turrets space around the equator, and two factories at the north and south poles. Approaching from any direction still allows three turrets to fire making it damn near impossible for anything other than micro-infantry to attack and it produces two mechs per week to combat those.
And those will sit towards the outer ring of controller territory. Moving inwards, onto a moon-sized planetoid, 1,460 bases can be built and you technically only need two turrets to defend it anyway since one is enough to blow anything 20th level out of the water. But let's go ahead and allocate 10% of the space to defenses, then out of the remaining split half that to real, then out of the remaining near-quarter split that up into super-level. That moon produces 34,164 real robots, 9,855 super robots, 4,927 arcane robots, and 4,927 divine robots per year and from any given direction 73 turrets can fire at approaching targets. Round some digits for bunkers to store overstock as needed and there ya go. Of course a more styled zerger may just stick to one turret, because that's all that is needed, and build a single factory next to it while dashing across the known space as a land grab.
Population generators, you know where baby pilots come from, may sit even further in your defended zone. But as the need for 146 turret defenses reduces to roughly half that (I personally never scrap all of my defenses), they can simply move to that moon.
