how do you clear out rubble (building, not turret rubble)?
« on: September 16, 2008, 10:54:15 pm »
I'm just wondering here because I just finished a military civ stage with some ICBMs and a few of my new cities have some rubble in them that I can't remove. One city has so much rubble that I can only place one building. I've tried picking it up or something, but that doesn't work. Its the large piles of twisted metal with what looks like green radiation coming out from it.

Also I've noticed that the citizens seem to be slowly clearing it out.

My question is how do I get rid of these big piles of rubble or do I have to wait for the citizens to clear it out?

That is the problem with nukes :/

They leave contaminated, unclearable rubble :/

Temporarily unclearable rubble. It goes away after awhile... quite awhile. At least that's what others have said.

I had the same problem and I'm still waiting for it to clear.

Yeah dont use nukes :)
And dont worry the rubble will clear after a period of time, dont build anything in those cities, your buildings will be lost, just leave the smoldering city and return when the radioactive fallout has cleared.

After just getting my 'Conclusion' achievement, I too was rather frustrated and slightly worried by those glowing piles of rubble.  I had not expected it (don't ask me why, I know that sounds stupid!) and began to fear that some of my home cities would be unusable.  (Why did no one warn me of the dangers of nukes?! :P)

I can confirm that after an hour or so in space I came back to my home planet and checked the cities and they were all clear.  One thing that did puzzle me slightly though...  there were four cities in civ stage with radioactive rubble, upon advancing to space stage there were still four cities with radioactive rubble but a different four cities ???

Instead of nukes, use hundreds of bombs you get for being a predator in creature stage (if you have them)

And then you go to space stage and suddenly you only have tiny little bombs that do nothing...LOL.

It is like they forgot about nukes later on. I really wanted some MASSIVE nukes for the space stage.

Maybe they suspended the production of the little things in favor of funding the research program for the you know what. ;) 8)
