Suggestions / Faster time acceleration for speedy rigs
« on: December 03, 2015, 04:04:09 AM »
Make time acceleration with Shift key faster, maybe variable with + and - keys.
Sometimes scouting for pirates, getting that one bounty in the far other end of the two-star system, playing "Sector Trucker 206" or waiting for wardec. in Excelerin the accelerated time still feels too slow.
Make it more like in M&B with 5x acceleration option, I'm sure my rig could handle it and I wouldn't mind some stutter.

Bug Reports & Support / Fishermen like to eat fancy

It seems that in latest release Volturn consumes 26% more lobster than it produces with 0 exports,
For the resource to have any use in the game Volturn should produce about 10-20 times more of it and it should be with a far higher base price to be worth it compared to organs or drugs.
Being the only palace that actually produce it, it's a wonder anyone actually knows enough about it to desire it.
You'd think they would sell it as it's 40 times more expensive as normal food. 
I guess it's just so good that they can't help themselves  ;D

General Discussion / Naval Academy IN SPACE!

1. Put all your xp points to crew training
1. Make a fleet of passenger liners with some defensive frigates
2. load the liners full of green crew (each big one can carry whopping 7000 crew!)
3. Fight Pirates and Luddies
4. Sell veteran crew for big money
5. Profit!

Would this daring and adventurous plan work?

Bug Reports & Support / BTM Micro won't let me buy the game
« on: December 02, 2015, 12:11:06 PM »
I order the game as usual with a Mastercard that I have had for over a year and I think have never canceled a payment from.
This is what they respond to me with:

I guess the easiest solution is to let someone else buy it for me and hope they don't arbitrarily cancel the order,
but this kind of stuff is what deters potential buyers so heads up for devs to maybe implement alternative payment options in the future.
