General Discussion / How to deal with high-danger systems?
« on: August 22, 2019, 01:18:41 PM »
I have a system with some really nice planets sitting right next to my current capital colony. The problem is that said system is full of Remnant and nothing I've thrown at them has been able to significantly dent their numbers. I lucked out exploring and have blueprints for both the Paragon and the Astral but facing off against a Remnant ordo ends up with the enemy losing two or three destroyer-sized vessels before all my ships (up to three Paragons and two Astrals so far) are overwhelmed and destroyed.

Am I supposed to just hurl dozens of capital ships one deployment after another at an ordo until I finally whittle it down and then repeat for the other ~7 cruising around the system?
I feel like I must be doing something incredibly wrong but I can't figure out what.

General Discussion / My kingdom for an Atlas!
« on: August 15, 2019, 03:45:33 AM »
After having finally had my first go at Starsector that I'd tentatively call successful I've found that my ambitions to become supreme galactic wholesaler are being curbed by a lack of convenient cargo capacity. The one Atlas in my fleet of mostly Colossi (salvaged from a pirate-ravaged Hegemony convoy) upgraded with Augmented Drive Fields and Efficiency Overhaul is my most efficient cargo hauler. I can, however, not for the life of me find anywhere to source more Atlases! I have once seen one for sale by the Hegemony military that sadly demanded a commission, which would have ruined my trading prospects. Yet on black markets across the core worlds I see these damnable Atlas Mk.II "upgrades" cropping up like mushrooms with 200 cargo capacity.

Is there anywhere I've missed where Atlases can be at least semi-reliably found for sale or will I have to settle for shadowing convoys in the hopes of them getting jumped and me snatching the wreck?
