Advanced Cloning is a more powerful form of Cloning , available only in Campaign games. It allows starships to be cloned at starbases after the ship limit has been reached. The following conditions must be met to initiate Advanced Cloning:
Unlike normal cloning, which takes place after the first Build Ship function in the Host Order , Advanced Cloning takes place during the first Build Ship function in place of normal build operations. If a starbase is scheduled to build a ship in either the priority build queue (using priority points) or in the normal build queue (by id #) and the starbase meets the above cloning conditions it will clone the ship instead of building any ship it may currently have set to build. The build queue will then move on as normal. The normal ship build will be skipped for this starbase until it is prioritized again.
