They cause plagues on the planet unless shields are up or a medlab whichi will prevent these bombs from bein effective.. We all know that biological warfare is a part or was a part of any military strategy for capping difficult targets such as fortified castles where diseased and dead cattle were launched into the cities to kill off the population... Since barely anyone actually uses bio bombs or neutron bombs this would be a good alternative to them... Killing the planet population with plague bombs would nmake capping a planet much easier unless a medlab building is present..

You do realize this is a rather useless idea. Either its too OP sounding with no medlab present or the medlab totally makes it a useless bomb. Med labs would probably end up on every planet as well so in the end it'd be useless.

Now for instance maybe if its a damage over time effect that errodes the population over a period of 30 seconds doing say 25% pop damage and if med labs gave a small % resistance each to the effect then I might understand this as being a potential idea.

admit it, you just want the power to cause plagues

plagues randomly happen on planets, and are more likely to happen when a planet is attacked. asking to have plague causing bombs is like asking for earthquake bombs, volcano bombs, recession bombs, smuggler bombs or plague bombs.


No, sir.

Also in DS lore it was agreed by both sides that biological weapons development would be banned after a bio weapon test killed everyone in delta pavonis

medlab reduces the chances of a plague bomb actually working not stop it entirely. plague bomb will always cause a plague unles a medlab is resent which will reduce the chances of the plague bomb working but not entirely stop it In any event that the plague bomb does infect the planet pop the medlab will reduce the time needed for a plague to end
