Amazing New Feature! Building Structures

The new mission 'Colonization' brings a whole new aspect to Stellar Forces: resource gathering and building structures.

* Gun vending machine
* Grenade vending machine
* Medi-bay
* Wall

Each of these costs a certain amount of Resource Points, and these points are  acquired by dismantling existing walls.  This makes the strategy of the game very different to the other missions - how long do you keep building and churning out clones before you decide to attack?  Will your opponents attack you first?  And how far dare you venture out to acquire more resource points, risking the lives of your engineers?

Here's a base I prepared earlier:-
