Re: ENDED - THE GRAND SIRIUS INTERSTELLAR EXPEDITION

Everyone got paid automagically. Which sounds good, especially for explorers who may be a long way away. BUT... there's no record of how much you were paid. Unless you keep a close eye on your balance from day to day, you'll never know. It's a mystery. :roll:

Re: Debilitating Disease Devastating BD-02 4304

My guess is that this CG will not be popular and may not achieve its top tier. Why not? Because the delivery station is around 8,000 light seconds from the star! Traders don't like such distances for rapid repetitive trade routes. It reduces the profit/hour and it increases risk of interdiction, esp...

Re: THE GRAND SIRIUS INTERSTELLAR EXPEDITION

Currently:
  • reward tier 5 (of 10, non-linear)
  • 840,271 reports
  • 4,066 contributors
  • top 5% reward is 7,500,000 cr.
Final goal appears to be 4,000,000 reports.
Expiry if 4,000,000 not reached is still over 2 weeks away.

Re: General Thought On PP So Far?

I had another interesting experience with AI. A Diamondback Scout interdicted me. I ran for it and made it back to SC, and then got interdicted by the same guy again. I ran again and this time made it to the station. As I was approaching, I was attacked again by the same ship. This time I just kept...

Re: Really Overwhelmed with 1.3 PowerPlay

Anyone else having trouble absorbing it all? Call it daftness or old age, but I've read through the release notes and have been spending mornings with coffee waking up to reading all the new powers stuff and the leaders info and galaxy map updates and I don't even know where to start! I think you'r...

Re: THE GRAND SIRIUS INTERSTELLAR EXPEDITION

I put in 33 reports, top 70% so far. Sold my scanner after getting bored. Might buy a new one and get a few more closer to the end. Sadly this community exploration goal, like previous such goals, is not really exploration. Or at the very least it encourages bad exploration habits. That is true of ...

Re: ENDED - The Hunt for Halsey (short duration exploration)

Very flattering of you to suggest it, and most courteous of you to ask. :) How about this? Keep this post here and I'll write a separate one for the Tips and Tricks forum (probably this weekend) with more and better examples taken from past goals, and answers to a few questions. When that's done, I'...

Re: ENDED - The Hunt for Halsey (short duration exploration)

Here's a tip. I worked this out from observing my own progress during several goals and also recording how friends were doing. It seems to work for any type of community goal: combat, trade or exploration. And even though it's an approximate rule of thumb, I still find it useful. At any time after a...
