- All your actions require a decent cost, so ensure the collection of three or four spice harvesters.
- The enemy can capture the building, if practically destroyed, attack him as long as the energy reaches the protection of red (critical) level, and then send it to the structure of a lone soldier. After capturing safely performed, be sure to immediately turn on the option Fix. This technique is relevant primarily for the capture of guns that are much easier task to destroy the enemy.
