how to get story points
« on: December 14, 2022, 02:32:56 PM »

I apologize if this was already posted somewhere I looked it up in the search bar and got lots of results but no topics explaining how to get them. I admittedly spent all of my points on the single planet i own  to keep it table and thus i admit i really could use more. diplomacy, fighting  and blowing up stations doesn't seem to give any thus my question. i'll be laughing if i'm trying to get them via doing things all wrong?

You get a story point every 1/4 of a level up (and continue getting them even after you hit level cap).

AKA- do things that give you a lot of XP to get story points quickly (fight hard battles).

oh....Xd that was vaguely explained in game also good to know you can infinitely earn them. Add a lot more playability after the main campaign is done. although....now i just need to learn how to fly and the points will be flowing. yeah i'll admit i am horrible at flying. if anything i'm a like a top spinning around unable to strafe or go wer ei want. either way before i go off topic thank you bowman for the answer. with this this short topic question is answered.

Have you tried inverting the turn to cursor controls in the options menu? That might help you better control your ship

Yeah, Valor is much more arcade like. Here, you need to worry about momentum and such
