most fun was exploring the abandoned systems
« on: December 22, 2015, 09:05:09 AM »

seriously even though I didn't see a single fleet in the Penelope's Star system, it was fun exploring it. It was interesting to 'unlock' the history of the system piecemeal by going from planet to planet, and I felt like I achieved something when I found that wreck of a "rad-hot" Onslaught at the bottom of a canyon.

The Mexican system was good too (almost uninhabited). That reference to the iraq war/iran nuclear deal also amused me, though I spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out what, if any, political point was being made.

Next update hoping for references to Thucydides' Melian Dialogue on a barren pock-marked moon.

Damn I'm not paying close to that much attention on the little information texts... I'm constantly busy getting money or supplies and a trip to an empty system would just mean I lose money.
I have just under a million in bank... maybe I should try less hard and play with wear...

Has anyone with Nav 10 tried docking with it?

Yma? That's not Mexican, it's Quechua. And where's there a reference to the war in Iraq?

I'll now refer to it as the  "Precolumbine civilizations" star system when I can't remember the actual name.

The iraq war/iran deal reference is in there somewhere on one of the planets.

Is it Killa? Or the other one next to it? I've read both descriptions and I didn't get any references.

Also that system isn't quite abandoned. If we ever get an "alternative" pirate start, I'd like to start from that system.

Abandoned or not, it does have some extremely cheap marines. I now have around 700 marines just by constantly buying there.

There's another system that offers dirt cheap marines, near the bottom west of the map but I can't remember the name. The planet is called Maxios I think.

Decivilized plantes.
Weather forecast of Maxios is full of meteor showers.
Killa? No need to explain...right?

So the question is what weapons do they actually carry. Stone hammer maybe ;D
