How should they spawn? Because despite having the messages they have appeared, I never actually see any one of them, in 3 games...
It has been a very long time since I've seen them spawn. Usually there's one lonely pirate ship with no shipyard around at the beginning of the game, but when I get the message about the pirates they don't spawn. I'm wondering if it's because of my galaxy settings, maybe the pirates need more room to be able to spawn into.
I did see some pirate bases in the first 3.5 release, but I think it's like the setting differences between "common" and "abundant" - there's a large jump between the two.
Mostly, it's one lonely little pirate ship, just waiting around.
Perhaps the evil empires attract more pirates per the game configs- I normally bounce between good and neutral, so the local conditions aren't poor enough to create enough demand for pirates.
I'm glad its not just me then... I've been trying to figure out how to just have the game spawn the bases like they used to instead of waiting for the event, but no-go.
Even once I get the event, pirate bases only seem to spawn on "abundant"
I just got pirate bases in a game this morning, from the event, with them set on Occasional. Perhaps it has been fixed? It did help prompt me to build more warships, as I was in an isolated part of the galaxy.
I remember seeing some now if they were set on 'abundant', but that's it.
