Quick ship, weapon and fighter guides [0.9.1a]
« on: April 30, 2017, 11:26:38 AM »

Mine and partly mine, partly community made, respectively, ship and weapon quick beginner guides! If you don't know what weapons to put, what ship to look for or which ships beware? These guides will help!
Feel free to point any mistakes and whatnot. Those guides aren't all-covering nor 100% exact, but they are good enough to give a sense of weapons and ships.
Link to the weapon guide.
Link to the ship guide.
Link to the fighter guide.


Note: you can reply to this thread anytime if you feel guides are inadequate or want to comment, even if last reply was quite some time ago.

Some useful stuff, might as well put it here:
Locations of safe free storages:
- Abandoned Terraforming Station in orbit of Asharu, Corvus system.
- Abandoned Siphon Station in orbit of Chupi Orco, Yma system.
- Abandoned Astropolis in orbit of Mairaath, Mayasura system.
Locations of planets with ruins in the sector core:
- Maxios, in Magec system.
- Hanan Pacha and Killa, Yma system.
- Crom Cruach, Hybrasil system.
In addition to that, certain core systems have parts randomly generated, and random planets can have ruins that you can search for valuables.

As someone returning to the game after 2+ years, this is really appreciated. If you were able to add pics of the ships it would be perfect imo.

1. In codex you can find all pictures for ships, as well as accurate stats of ships.
2. Images would bloat the size of doc (which per se isn't that bad, I just don't want to redesign it because it's work and I'm lazy).

I'd be worried that someone is gonna delete everything, hope there's a protection against that?

Not seeing any direct mention of the Wayfarer in the frigates section.

Do you mind if I work on this and add pics / clean up the layout a bit in that case?

It'd be best if you copied that doc and then redesigned it, that way if people wanted to change description won't be prevented from doing so.
Also, as I said, your limit is 1 page per 1 size (so you can fit descriptions for 2 sizes on 1 page, but every size can take up to 1 page) to prevent this doc from bloating. It's supposed to be short, not an all-encompassing guide.

I wrote this because... What exactly they are good at? Fleeing? They are outdone by dedicated ships in every field.

Oh, I don't disagree. I'm just into "themed" playthroughs.

I hear you. I'll make a copy and mess around with it.

"..reliable in AI’s hands and rewarding in player’s, especially with SO"

What is SO.

Nevermind find it. Safety Overrides
