BGS guide

Postby CMDR 3D PLAGUE » Thu Nov 16, 2017 9:29 pm

Recently John Luke asked everyone to take a survey regarding The Order of Mobius minor faction.
Mr. McBride was kind enough to share some of the results from the question "What would you like?" with me which gave us some insight into a demand for an up-to-date BGS guide as plenty of you wanted to participate but didn't know where to start.

So i took it upon myself to make said guide which is now ready to be released into the wild.

The guide can be found here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DpSek ... ZPKuOnmhRM

As I'm not an active forum user any and all questions, remarks, improvement suggestions or general feedback regarding the guide can be relayed to me through the Mobius discord found here: https://discordapp.com/invite/RrFfNmU

You can also find The Order of Mobius members and daily orders on the above mentioned Discord for any further questions regarding the BGS or if you are looking for other CMDRs to play with.


I'll try and maintain the guide for as long as i can and hope this will help everyone trying to get into the BGS and help those seeking for a refresher.

The most recent changes will be detailed in the guide itself.
Where as a back-log of all made changes wil be listed here.


version 1.0.1 Change-log:

What are system states?

- added link to external table specifying the impact specific missions have on states.
- clarified the negative effect a Lockdown state has on the system.


cartographic data & Bounty vouchers

- new topic to further explain their function and limitations.


using negative states to your advantage

- New topic to address some accidentally left out information.

Thank you.

Most of my elite time at the moment is working to fathom the BGS so this is very useful to me.

Everything you need to know about the BGS.

It's broken.

Ignore it.

Enjoy happier life.

No, it's not broken. It works as expected much more reliably than my wife does. :lol:

When using a kill warent scanner I get bounties for multiple factions. If I turn in bounties, does it matter which faction issued them? Or only where I turn them in?

When you have multiple bounties (multiple factions) they each affect their corresponding faction's control.

Any bounty you hand in other then the Order of Mobius one will counteract against OoM control (provided they are present in those systems).
there are 2 exceptions to this famine & outbreak: a faction in these states don't gain influence from combat actions.

or if you don't feel like waiting for the correct state you could always go to a Interstellar Factor aligned space port to hand the other bounties in at a 25% penalty (reduces the money you get and the influence the factions get by 25%).

closest Interstellar Factor port (that has a large landing pad) to OoM space is Paola Plant, Ombiko system

Of course nobody will force you to hold on to bounties until they are in those states or otherwise, and you are fine handing them in whenever you'd like.
