At the moment it looks like transport units (probably other units as well) can be upgraded when they are moving. It makes gameplay easier but it would be more realistic if units could be upgraded only when stationed. For example I can imagine upgradng my attack fleet while on its way to the target which gives me a kind of advantage. What do you think?

I thought about exactly this for a while. Honestly I'm kind of on the fence about it. Realism doesn't really play a part. In this game there are "People" everywhere, even on planets where no corp is on yet. When you upgrade you're essentially send more stuff that way via normal transportation. When you relocate half way across the galaxy, its probably a different staff in the building.

If I was to take structures offline to upgrade it would be disastrous so they don't get penalized. If I make units have to go to the corp or war factory and issue themselves an "Upgrade" order it would cause a lot of aggravation, especially on transports. It's also more coding and interface for something that doesn't add anything to the game but annoyances =)

OK, I got your point. I am actually ok with the things as they are now.
