Star Command: Revolution
The main ideas to learn in Basic Training are resource gathering, technology acquisition,
and training. The Mothership is responsible for resource gathering and technology acquisition.
When the Mothership is near a resource, she opens her bay doors and sends out a shuttle to
grab the resource. When the Mothership is adjacent to any University (Academy, Programming,
Battle School, or Eduplex), she will learn new technology.
If she is adjacent to two Universities, she will learn at twice the rate. The ships you build
may also benefit from being adjacent to a University. A ship will become educated up to
the fourth level of experience if you leave your unit adjacent to a University.
If you need to rapidly train a stream of new units, you can build two Universities with
enough space between them to fit one new ship. That way all your new ships will become fourth
level at twice the rate that your opponents ships raise levels. If you ever feel stuck
in Basic Training, remember that your Mothership can build a Missile Base a short range away
from herself, even on the other side of a barrier. Then build a Terran Switcher ship.
Select the Switcher ship. Right click on the Missile Base that you built on the other side
of an obstacle that has you stuck. The Switcher ship will swap locations with the Missile
Base and can now move freely on the other side of the obstacle. If you feel that the new area
is safe, select your Switcher again and right-click on your Mothership. Now your Mothership
is on the other side. If she is attacked, just Switch her out of danger.
If your Mothership remains adjacent to the Academy long enough, she will learn Computron
technology. Build the Computron Base and then the Programming station. Position your
Mothership adjacent to the Programming station. One of the Computron technologies is the
Teleportal. If you build a Teleportal on the other side of an obstacle, you can bring many
units to the other side. Just select the Teleportal and right-click on your Mothership and
then on any other ship you own to transport them to an unoccupied space adjacent to the
When the Basic Training mission feels easy, you will be ready for Campaign or Battles.
If the Basic Training mission is going too fast, hit F5 two times to set game speed to slow.
