Ships and Shipyards


Published: Jul 5, 09:08 PM by: Robert ~ Voidhawk

You do not have to have a shipyard on a planet in order to base a fleet there.

You cannot build any new ships on that planet, or defenses, but you can launch attacks from that planet, or recycle hauls or ship resources to another planet.


OGame Tips Strategy Guide

  1. How do you build a shipyard?

  2. Go to the technology screen. It says Shipyard requires “Robotic Factory(level 2)”. Once you build a level 2 robotic factory you will get an additional building type: Shipyard.

  5. I was wondering wat the word multialarm. I was trying to send my fleet somewhere in another universe and it said multialarm. Can someone help me out.

    — Rok    Dec 22, 09:34 PM    #
  6. build a colony ship. now find a slot in a galaxy that is uninhabited (for example 1:242:7) now go to fleet, colony ship and choose colinization for the mission type

  7. i can answer the multialarm question. my friend used my computer to log in and found out that he had lost about 900k of each resource. i then logged in to help him out, but when i tried sending a fleet to him, it said multialarm. it does this so when people that have more than one account per universe (cheating) use one colony to supply the other, the multialarm thing stops them (hence the name). so if you and your friend log in on the same computer withing a time period of about 24 hours, you can’t send any fleets.

  8. that is probably only if you have “IPC check” enabled under options, however i have not checked on this

  9. how do you get deuterium

  10. how do you get a shipyard?????

  11. how is trading working? i mean how do you send the resources?

    — kili mon jaaro1    Feb 2, 12:38 PM    #
  12. to trade, just tell a player what you want to exchange and have him ship his money to you and you ship your money to him. It is kind of a trust thing, because if I sent my money to someone and they were sending cash to me and then simply decided to recall their fleet once mine arrived at their planet the only way I could get the money back would be to raid them.

  13. I sent a fleet over to a planet that had a Shipyard Lvl 6. In that fleet were roughly 8 Battle Ships. When I looked at my fleet list, I found that not a single battleship showed up. When I upgraded to Shipyard lvl 7, still the 8 battleships didn’t show up. If anyone could explain this, it would be much appreciated.

  14. How many ships can u make?! can u make more if u got a higher lvl in shipyard or there is no limit, no matter what the shipyard lvl is

    — Piranha    Apr 7, 03:03 AM    #
  15. On my Shipyard page I have Small Cargo Ship, Light Fighter, and Solar Satellite. How do I build one of them? There is no “build” option to the right like everything else, only a Send button at the bottom that doesn’t seem to do anything. Thanks.

    — John    Apr 20, 01:57 AM    #
  16. aw man i so new how do you trade with other people anyway? and how long do i have to wait to get a freeking fleet and how big does it haf to be

    — DaoFu    Apr 27, 11:29 PM    #
  17. i can’t figuer out how to transport materials because theres always a multi alarm? how can i fix this

    — homosapian    May 3, 01:10 PM    #
  18. to answer johns question, if there is nothing to the right of a ship in ur shipyard that means u do not hav enough resources to build it

    — wellsy    May 5, 06:33 AM    #
  19. this is to answer john. if you have enough resources, there should be a zero in a slot, next to the ship. if you want to buy it, then replace that number with the quanity of ships you want to buy.

    — bounty hunter    Jun 8, 03:39 PM    #
  20. this is to sycotic, first you have to buy the battleships, and you have to meet the requirment to posses one. if you click tachnology on the side bar then it will tell what you need to get battle ships avalible. Once this is done you then purchase these ships by using the directions above

    — bounty hunter    Jun 8, 03:43 PM    #
  21. this is to Piranha, it does not matter how developed your shipyard is to have a large fleet. when you began you are only allowed to deploy one ship, and you have to wait until that ship returns from it’s mission to dploy another one. if you want to increse the amount of ships you can deploy then you need to upgrade your computer tech. this determines how large your fleet can be. every level ugraded is one more ship you can launch on a mission.this can de upgraded in reaserch section.

    — bounty hunter    Jun 8, 03:48 PM    #
  22. Nearly, bounty hunter, actually from level zero comp. tech (CT), you can send one fleet. A fleet can be any amount of ships, as long as they are all doing exactly the same thing.
    Eg. you could send a fleet of 50 LF (light Fighters) 25 HF (heavy fighters) and 20 SC (small cargoes) on an attack mission to (random co-ords) 1:232:1, but you could not then send another fleet of however many ships to any place (debree field, other planet even same planet), until your first fleet had returned. :(
    Each level of comp. tech increases your no. of fleets by one so [C.T level 3 = 4 fleets] [C.T level 7 = 8 fleets] etc.
    I hope that clears that for you Pirahna. :)

  23. “so if you and your friend log in on the same computer withing a time period of about 24 hours, you can’t send any fleets.”

    Actually, two people using the same IP can send fleets, attack, etc.

    However, they are not allowed to interact with each other, whether it be an attack, resource transportation or even espionage.

  24. hi there
    when i want to build a ship it says send, it doesnt do nothing and all there is,is a box saying 0 and i have checked and i have enough resources i just cant figure it out????

    — nathan    Jul 5, 02:54 AM    #
  25. The box saying “0” is where you key in the number of ships you wish to produce.

    — Arbron    Jul 11, 04:20 AM    #
  26. hey is it possible to send a fleet of ships created on a colony planet to permanently stay at another planet?

    — thor    Jul 11, 09:51 AM    #
  27. wat does it mean by “Deployment” ?

    — leutcmdrdata    Jul 23, 05:07 AM    #
  28. deplyment means that you are sending the fleet to stay in the planet
    for example one of mi plantes gets crushed and i want to send some fleet there for defend it i can say mi fleet to deploy there and obviusly you can transport resources while deploing for example a fleet of 1000 BS will be able to stay in the planet and transport 1000k in resources (without counting deutconsumtion)

    — Sir rexxar    Jul 27, 05:11 PM    #
  29. Is there anyway to attack someone when they use the same computer , i dont think ip check works

    — Greg    Aug 21, 04:33 PM    #

  32. i have 3 planets including my home and i have 4 fleet slots. is there any way a can have more fleets active at once? i have a shipyard on each of my planets

    — teh27    Apr 23, 10:52 PM    #
  33. to answer lOl its impossible to take apart a ship like you would a building (unless its destroyed)

    — teh27    Apr 23, 10:54 PM    #
  34. hi i am really far into the game and i have my metal mine at lvl 25 and i want to know what is the max lvl coz in uni 30 all res is x2 please awanser :)

    — random guy    May 24, 10:51 AM    #
  35. u can increase your fleets with compueter tecnology

    — Roxana Mora    May 31, 11:27 AM    #
  36. How do I deploy to a buddy? He needs the help but it only allows me to trade and attack his planet. What do i do?

    — gysmo1    Jun 9, 10:39 PM    #
  37. If you can’t deploy a fleet to defend also known as ACS Defend, then your uni. may not have that option to use it!

    — kickbass    Jun 12, 08:46 PM    #
  38. hi im a bit of a noob but what would be the best to attack with LF?
    do they have rapid fire against anything?

    — jolly boy    Jul 25, 10:14 AM    #
  39. This is amazing! I just figured out how to stop a ship from being built: just highlight the one in the production line in the Shipyard that you want to get rid of, and click the send button again. It removes it! Amazing!

    — Anti-anti-noob Guy    Aug 14, 08:34 PM    #
  40. Never mind, no it doesn’t. Worked when I tried making two cruisers by accident, but nothing else did.

    — Anti-anti-noob Guy    Aug 14, 08:36 PM    #
  41. Wow this has been inactve for a while but I’m here to help a couple of people.
    To Random guy,
    There is no known limit to how much you can build a building but the time it takes in the higher levels is in months so people only build up to around lvl 40.

    — shanman    Mar 15, 06:17 PM    #
  42. To Jolly Boy,
    Light fighters have rapid fire against esp. probes and solar sats but can be used against cargo ships and recyclers without takeing damage. (This is only if the opposing ship is in small numbers.)

    — shanman    Mar 15, 06:20 PM    #
  43. i’m trying to transport materials from one of my planets to another, which is based in a completly different universe. Do both planets require a shipyard in order to trade between the two

    krysztof    Apr 26, 08:29 AM    #
  44. To krysztof,

    You can’t send resources to your other planets that are not in your universe, only to your planets that are in your galaxy. And you don’t have to have a shipyard on both planets to trade. You just need to have a ship, then fill it up with the resources you want and send it on it’s way!
