my bots aren't going anywhere.
no, they get diamonds instead. LIS has to import aluminum or belong to a commonwealth that can send it to you.
mine the diamonds
they sell for alot
then you can easily import aluminum with the cash you made from it.
just ensure you keep some diamond for your colony..its not forever but its needed
I ran out of diamonds....how do I get more?
If you are connected online you can go to the League Trade Authority or start a Diplomacy. Diplomacy has worked well for me in this game.
Lis Asteroid has diamonds.
LIS abandoned world has aluminium.
Start an abandoned map, mie the aluminum and gift it to yourself.
