New Player Corner / Re: Espionage on my whole array of planets

Well, just so you're aware, there were scripts (like SFCstats) that were written such that the information can be searched.

For example, one script automatically saves all the planet names and owner names into a database while the player is scanning across the various systems.  If that information is shared across several players (of an alliance, for example), then other people can benefit from the manual efforts of a few.

Would be awesome if you could. Send it on the longest, slowest fleet save possible and be like a ghost ship.

no but they can see your fleet if you attack an inactive and then they oracle that planet.  They can also GD that planet if they were friends when the player went (i)

Actually, from what I've seen of my friend's oracle, you can oracle anyone ... even people on vacation.  My friend is constantly griping about "darn it, I can oracle this guy who's (vn) ... but that doesn't really make much sense."

You can even oracle someone who's  (N) ... so beware the newbie who's may be getting paid to keep an eye on you!

Just don't send anymore missiles and I'll try to call off the latest attack. If only I had went with Verizon Wireless instead of AT&T!

I'm gonna go outside and walk around to see if I can get a signal. Be right back!

heh heh ...

Can you hear me now??

Also... considering how expensive fields are, unless you're actually planning to install defenses, putting a Shipyard on a Moon is a waste of valuable space.

This is the part of the game that bugs me.

There's currently no ABMs that can defend a moon.  So the defenses on the moon are essentially a sitting duck for IBM-strikes.

i didnt see an update in extreme.

Yeah, same here.  And I don't play the original.

I wonder if they're actually doing something unique in the original...

I ran into this problem, though. We regularly do group atttacks and since I have more recyclers than anyone else in my alliance in extreme, I usually scoop the debris and distribute it. But one of my alliance members has a higher RS ranking than I do, so his transport icon is grayed out. If it's pushing for us to group and me keep it, how do I legally distribute the resources? I owe this player 2 mil ore and 1 mil crystal and haven't been able to figure out how to legally do it; I could drop it on an inactive but haven't because I don't want to look like we're cheating.

Do a structured series of trades.  I'm pretty sure this method is legal, and has been talked about in these forums before.  It would be nice if Matt replies and approves the examples given below.

For example:

You trade: 8000k Ore
You receive: 4000k  Crystal
You trade: 4000k Crystal
You receive: 6000k Ore

The net effect of those two trades is that you've given away 2000k Ore.  (The downside is that both of you will be spending hydrogen to get this done).

Another example

You trade: 3000k Crystal
You receive: 2000k Hydrogen
You trade: 2000k Hydrogen
You receive: 2000k Crystal

Net effect:  you gave away 1000k Crystal.

I love this part:

Picard: One, and it’s on a direct course for Earth.
Riker: Which Earth? So many players out there with a planet called Earth.

If you make another, let it be "AVATAR" .... there's so many Pandora planets around.

General Starfleet Discussion / Re: Have you ever won that lotto?

Quote from: "LunarAvenger"
... the only thing I can figure this lotto system is good for is if BFG wanted to manipulate the game. After all what encourages a newer player then "you won an athena" ?? or a few artemis?

Bingo.  I think that's exactly what BFG was trying to do.

It's kinda funny though ... a newbie gets his 2 Athenas, and they're moving a lot slower than his Artemis or Apollo raiding fleet ... so he ends up getting ninja'd.

it is most likely either they are working on it or it is extremely dificult to make, as it would take much time, effort, etc to make a ship with unknown stats until its finished being made..... also because they could still be deciding on a ship shape to use, how to do it, even up to what is should have components of.......good luck BFG, try to get this feature as soon as possible

Heya Czer!  I know you've read the Flagship/Hero idea (something I started building on, and then many people have made adjustments to it.)  For those who haven't read it yet, you'll find a link in Sid's reply above, or in my signature below.

The advantage to the Flagship/Hero idea is that the "capitol ship" is not a "new ship" ... it's just an improved version of the existing ship(s).  So, there wouldn't be any need to "build components" and put them together like lego blocks.

Well, if the game was being played as a "single player game" where the only source of resources was your mines and your missions, then I would agree with you.

However, this is a multi-player game.  So you're technically competing against other players (and/or working with other players).

And some players have a philosophy of:  if I can take my enemy's resources away, the fact that their growth is crippled will be worth the effort ... and perhaps they'll stop playing and I'll have another inactive planet(s) that I can farm.

Now ... I'm not saying that's my philosophy (and it isn't) ... but I just want to bring up that there are people who play the game that way.

Hmmm ... just wondering if there are any additional comments based on the new version (the one that LunarAvenger suggested, and I've now adopted).

The purpose/description stays the same:
-- to attack inactives
-- to attack weakly guarded planets

It's definitely not a replacement for the Artemis fodder (Artemis is still a lot cheaper, and provides better armor/weapons and fuel consumption)

But it's still definitely an extremely fast raiding ship.

When you unlock it at Warp 1, it goes at 32500 speed
In Extreme, That's 16.5 minutes to attack a planet in-system
Or about 30 minutes to attack planets within 8 systems

When you get it to Warp 8, it goes at 85000 speed
In Extreme, That's 10 minutes to attack a planet in-system
Or about 20 minutes to attack planets within 8 systems
Or about 45 minutes to attack a neighboring galaxy
