I've done this, using military-grade formers (customized in the workshop) to raise a mountain and create a rain shadow around large enemy bases. It works OK, as the sudden drop of food really wreaks havoc with populations and drones.
Sturleson: On a separate note, has anybody else ever attempted to make climate hurt the other factions? Like building a mountain range is supposed to affect the moisture downwind.
But even with Weather Paradigm it's slow and expensive. By the time I feel comfortable undertaking such a project I usually have faster and better means of weakening the enemy. It's sort of like my beloved submersible aircraft carriers-- fun, but inefficient and ultimately not very practical.
