Short question. Does this still work?: "After being taken over in combat, a planet's friendly code will be randomized. "

I believe the friendly code remains the same unless its ATT or NUK and then it is randomised.

Friendly Codes are NOT randomized after you take it over.

Which is very useful to send messages to your enemies: die, ass... or some shortened 4-letter word... :-)

No. If the FC is any form of att or nuk it *will* change.

I could be thinking of ground combat.

I did some double-checking on the nuk/att FCs and what changes and when:

1. If a planet is set to a regular FC (i.e. aaa or 123) and it is attacked by a ship, the FC will remain the same.

2. If a planet is attacked by Ground Combat, the FC will remain the same. This is so for any FCs (i.e. aaa or 123 or nuk).

3. If a planet has its FC as "nuk/att", the PLANET initializes combat and so the FC is randomized. In this case, even a ship set to "Kill" does not start the battle.

Basically, you have an advantage if YOU initiate the combat. You get to discover what FCs the enemy is using.
