Summary0023070: Allow the Imperial Spire and Spire Plasma Driver to automatically fire on and destroy the Devourer Golem
DescriptionI don't know if it would cause problems with their (Imperial Spire) current behaviour, but they can easily take it out if they actually fired their guns at it.
I attached a post-victory screenshot that shows a lot of them (100k+) sitting on the same planet not attacking it.
I don't know if they see it as a high enough threat to do this sort of thing when the AIs are still alive; I certainly didn't notice them prioritizing the Devourer Golem.

Also, sometimes the Devourer seemed to get stuck on the Spire Great-Shield (sadly I forgot to make a save) and it would just jiggle around harmlessly until I ordered it fired upon by a Plasma Driver/Spire Fortress/Seeker turrets (or I killed it with my own Spire fleet). It should still be lower priority than other ships, but maybe let these structures fire on it if they have nothing better to do, or have the Devourer Golem be able to pass through the Great-Shield.
TagsNo tags attached.

My 0.02 of your favourite currency: I think in fallen spire games everything should probably be able to fire on the Devourer. Big exos would easily kill it, larger player spirefleets easily kill it, AI praetorian guard and threatfleets would easily kill it...
I know in a two of my spire games the Devourer has got stuck on the other side of the AI homeworld and slowly eaten the entire AI dragon force because the AI will deploy the praetorian guard against it and then not actually shoot.

Wild thought:
Maybe the devourer should be able to retrieve spire debris?

A Devourer upgraded with Spire debris sounds terrifying; I like the way you think. A lot of other minor factions already have interactions with Spire debris so it wouldn't be out of place.
