Established a colony for *** and giggles. Functions like a normal colony would. Visitors found it hard to leave though. :)

Hmm... Looks like that place is pretty safe to live on! Normal 100% hazard rating! Wish I could say the same of Earth... ;)

Normally I *** myself at the mere icon of a black hole on my radar, but this has intrigued me enough to maybe see them in a different light.

I know it's probably unintended but the notion of colonizing a black hole is one of those far-reaching sci-fi concepts that I'd love to see more of in general. Starsector is a prime garden for this too given the setting. Imagine running into O'neill Cylinders, Dyson Spheres, Kugelblitz Reactors, and many other kinds of freaky technology on a cosmic scale.

we could all be living inside a black hole right now. 

The space time differential should make that colony grow fast.

For those who are intrigued, I also flew into a star.

The parties there are LIT!


Warning: Only try this on the non-main star in binary/multiple star systems.

Just 24/7 Smash mouth blaring the entire time you're on the colony is really the worst part of living there.

In my game, a pirate base is right next to a black hole... There is about 5-6 fleets in there having some good time.

That low hazard rating is somehow making the picture even more comical.

Yeah I know it's a bug, but maybe it should be kept, your people are living in hab just outside the event horizon and collecting stuff before it get sucked in, or scooping the stars corona for rare metals and gasses. But they should also have hazards, like "100% perilous existence" mod to show how risky working that close to certain death requires vary proper maintenance or some such.

Did you call the colony Hotel California? You can check out but you can never leave.
