I'd like to test some fighter blitz starts, but it seems I can't build them in both settings. Other empires seem not to have them either. What's up with that and how do I correct it?
Using version 1.40b23
in post-warp you never get them
and its intentional - readme states it;
"post warp tech age - players will receive all tech up to 250RPs except
fighter bays. Creative races will also no longer receive fighter bays in post warp."
on advanced you can get them, it's matter of chance. if you are Creative, you will have them for sure.
