Nova Universe / Re: Broken NPCs

I just dropped by to check on the forums; did not expect someone to reply to one of my posts from... 2 years ago haha.  Nice to see you're still in the game!  Sorry to see you're still struggling with hydro. 

I think the advice back in my time was to build up your main hydrogen storage tank to an appropriate level, and then use merchants to exchange ore/crystal.  That evolved into players building their storage tanks to absurdly high levels in order to maximize conversion from that 5k credit cost (I'm assuming the merchant price hasn't changed).  Alternatively, depending how much hydro you needed, if you had a nice big neighbor with a high level storage tank, you could arrange a trade with them and possibly pay them a small credit fee in exchange for their hydro.

Bottom line though is that you'll always lose hydro in raiding NPCs, unless things have changed, which I doubt, because merchants = $$.

Haha just read through this thread, surprised BFG (was it Jason?) didn't lock it up after page 2.

If I apply 4 levels of Eradeon to my Charons, will they carry 7 droids?  ;D

I'd been watching Graham for a little while, and observed that he was a pure NPC farmer.  His primary moon was quite small, so I planned to destroy it and lock his returning Thanatos fleets, but that didn't pan out.  I made a MAC in system and mooned it, and successfully destroyed the moon, but there were no NPC fleets out.

After battle your Zeus count was 16.
There was a 99.17% chance of destroying the moon and it succeeded.

There was a 37.6% chance of losing the attacking fleet, and the fleet was saved.



Sting and I waited around until his fleet returned, but he was online before the fleet got back, so we didn't have a chance at getting him.  Luckily for us, he launched all 500k of his Thans at Sting's heph.  I had moved my entire fleet off my heph onto my MAC moon, and using my oracle from 68 systems away, I was able to successfully defend Sting's heph, and we destroyed a good portion of his Thans.

Sting was able to harvest all of the debris from that battle.  Being that his Thanatos took 1:00:43 to attack Sting's heph, we were able to mount our own counterattack and lock the remainder of his Thans.  I was even able to add in my own Thans to the attack which was lucky!

There was a 20.0% chance that a moon would form from the debris.
However, no moon formed.


I harvested 82B of that debris field and Graham got the rest. 

Definitely a nice DSP boost for myself and Sting, unfortunately Mr. Graham Tucker was also boosted from DSP rank 706 to rank 12  :-\

Nah he just let his p mode expire by accident.

Wow bob is so good he was able to lock my return on a npc within 2.5 sec. The part that makes him even better, almost physic is he had to launch before I hit the npc.

Who knows, he might have had trial and errors before that you never knew about.  If he anticipated you hitting an NPC and it never happened, they he might've recalled and you would never know come morning.  In this case he anticipated you hitting the NPC and it did happen, so all he had to do was slow down his attack in progress to the appropriate time.

Lol at least your hydro expenditure is peanuts relative to most of the developed player population.

FYI there's a warning message in the NPC espionage reports if the NPC is going to disappear within 2 hours.  It appears at the bottom of the report, as such: "The Urcath show signs of leaving soon."

If you have the espionage reformatting script from eljer, the warning shows up in yellow before you even expand the message so it's easily noticeable.
