Trick on the tatooine random map.
if you scout around early and hit a big bag of SANDCRAWLERS (the more you hit - the more you can find)
and start scouting in all directions, you will hit a lot of krayt (-sp) dragons which will attack the crawlers.
you can get abour 3 or 4 at a time attacking one sandcrawler.
so what do you do, since it takes forever for the crawlers to die?
ROLL INTO THE ENEMYS CAMP OF COURSE!
after they smash the crawlers they will go for the carbon or food workers.
it's funny as hell.
course it is kind of cheap - but an intresting way to use the map for your advantage.
i was already to tech 2 and the other guy was fending off krayt dragons left and right with no carbon. he got kind of mad and left in a huff, but i thought of it last minute - it wasn't planned.
