Any point to commission aside of money? Missions?
« on: June 19, 2022, 05:31:57 AM »

Just curious if theres any kind of like additional quests or missions I'm missing out on?

Like does joining a commission of a faction give you faction only missions of any kind aside of aiding them in defense or invasions?

I've tried commissions a few times in a few games but nothing ever seemed to pop up and the money doesnt really matter once you get to a point where your planets are making enough money.

The fact none of the planet people give you any different quests than you could get in the bar from randoms kinda sucks too, like the archon or CEO seem like important people that could be added to quests but... they just ignore you and theres nothing.

Man I wish there was more to do in this game cuz I do enjoy it alot, but after the academy missions basically galaxy domination is the only option I can see...

I installed the nex mod and tried the story mode on there with the direlects but honestly theres not really any story or additional missions here either; you just got a bunch of weak planets for everyone to take over.

Is there any mods someone knows of that adds actual missions to the game?

Is it possible to mod missions into the game? How hard is it to make a mod? Is there a mod creation application or? This games great enough that I'm actually debating upgrading my r9 290 for the first time ever cuz it cant run the game... been serving me great for years and its kinda weird this is the game to make me upgrade but tbh its hard to justify that if theres like nothing to do in the game aside of "make your own fun" it kinda makes alot of these people on planets to talk to feel lifeless when they just auto shut coms on you, or they are a generic person that gives you the same bar quests everyone else does.

There's also access to higher quality ships and weapons in the military markets of each faction. But other than that and extra money there's nothing else positive sadly. I'd also like some custom faction missions, instead of just being payed a little big extra for destroying their enemies.

Being able to colonize a world in their system without the faction organizing a sat bomb expedition to wipe your new colony off the map.

In case of Hegemony, also access to the Princess of Persea side quest that ends in an '80s style fighting game like Gladiator or Karate Champ.

Can you elaborate on the quest or how to start/trigger it? Is it still active in nex if you dont use core worlds and use the direlect questline?

tbh I've had my fair share of fun in devmode and I was wondering why that fencing simulator was in the game - I personally think its under utilized.

All I did was get a Hegemony commission and visit planets to check boards and bars in Hegemony space.  For me, it started in one of the worlds in Aztlan.  I do not know what triggers it aside from getting a Hegemony commission and visiting Hegemony worlds afterwards.  The quest chain will eventually take your character to Eventide where the fencing duel takes place.

I had finished the Janus device quest (and met Baikal Daud along the way) before getting a commission, though.

you need to meet daud (beat the story, effectively) & be commed to the hege, it'll pop up eventually on any hege world
because it relies on the story, it's inaccesible in random core.
