Out of curiosity, is the Iron Shell capable of doing A.I. Core inspections? If I saturation bomb every Hegemony colony, will I have to worry about Iron Shell picking up the slack?
Do you want them to?

Honestly speaking boss, not really. I like the expanded Hegemony feel Iron Shell comes with, and it'd be fitting if the Domain survivors were able to outlast the Domains successors.

Meanwhile, I'm going to be the Shoulder Devil and say merely:

Does Iron Shell faction *always* align/get friendly with Hegemony even in randomized relations/random core worlds game starts?

Seems to have fallen that way in the last two random galaxy/random faction relation setups I ran...

...in case the answer is "yes":  If possible, I would request an option to turn this off and allow random relations to truly be random.

Probably alignments or starting dispositions aren't randomized? Iron Shell is very closely aligned to Hegemony (obviously) so in Nexerelin, similar dispositions tend to align together. Really unsure as I do the bare minimum for random sector support right now, might have to ask Histidine later on for Nexerelin updates if random relations consider dispositions as well.

thanks for the info

...I still heard/determined why...but in my random games Hegemony seems to always do really well...even with random relations, even faction weighting, etc.  Adding Iron Shell to their side = juggernaut.

I would like to role-play Iron Shell deciding that yes, AI inspections suck and Heggies must submit to Doctor Waifu's...final inspection.

I think AI inspections should be Hegemony thing only. Instead Iron Shell should tax audit you if you smuggle too much or have free ports, maybe even outright taking over that function from Hegemony - Hegemony would no longer touch your free ports delegating this to Iron Shell
