Passive NPC units


What if, as an alternative to NPC soldiers, there were NPC civilians. In the lore it is said that there were over 50000 people that survived to Auraxis. Many are soldiers. These characters could miners, non combat engineers and medics, or plain civilians that, if owned or capture by a empire could give a slight buff.
Engy's could lower vehicle spawn times, miners give a rescourse buff medics lower spawn wait times and regular people just adding realism(for lack of better ideas)
I don't want this at launch ,but as something implemented later?

According to lore, at least, the civilian pop of Auraxis is actually living on space stations, so it wouldn't quite fit to have civvies wandering around a warzone in this case. I think similar buffs to what you have in mind may be eventually tied to certain facility types or maybe specific hexes.

Well, npc civilians would make more sense if we had some sort of non-combat facilities. As it is, everything that's in-game, you wouldn't really see much in the way of civilians around. If we had cities, or stations, or something, that'd be a little different.

We all know the civilians got deconstructed and processed into resources to fund the war effort.
