  2. Draco Alert!

    Here is a new DMX related event of minor interest. I am about to witness what will happen when two different DMX Collectives collide! I was moving to a DMX controlled system with the intent to explore a new area beyond it that did not appear to be controlled by the DMX. The system had the usual beacon: << System Beacon >> THIS SYSTEM IS INTERDICTED BY DMX SECTOR 0246 WARSHIPS -- FURTHER INCURSIONS WILL RESULT IN THE EXTERMINATION OF YOUR SPECIES No big suprise and I have been destroying DMX Sector 246 ships pretty heavily but...... My scout was promptly destroyed by what appears to be a new arrival in the system: X0866-3 [ROE: Z] *EXBIO* (Fleet Tonnage: 60,000) [Deploy Location 1] 1 ML EX4M (Minelayer - 60,000 tons [each]) <11,400 Fuel> ** I had detected 866 warships some 5 systems away by an entirely different route but now they appear here! Will 866 back off and leave this space to 246? Will 246 continue to claim it and tell 866 to take a hike? Stand by for more details when I send another scout in this direction latter in 2018. Assuming that I have grievously wounded 246 then shouldn't the presumably stronger 866 expand into this space to try and harm me? Will we ever get a galactic rumor report on which DMX Command is Unit Prime? It would be nice to know if I am up against a very strong DMX command or a weaker one.

  5. Draco Rumours

    Pete, Are we likely to ever get a rumor report on the status of various DMX groups status towards becoming "unit prime"? it would be interesting to know if we are taking on the strongest (or the weakest) DMX franchise.
  6. Superterran Star Kingdom of Rex

    My experience with the incarcerated has been positive. I have a strict rule that all conversations are limited to game topics and e-mail only conversations. i am sympathetic to their plight and if I were in their shoes (or stripes), I would find the mental diversions the game offers to be a lifeline. I also disagree with you that they always protect each other and gang up on mutual enemies. In one experience, I found an intense rivalry between two individuals caused one of them to pass on secrets and maps that caused great harm to his friend with loose lips. I was happy to benefit from this rivalry but it's just the nature of the game that the system can work against you.
  7. Hey Rex! I found your dog wandering around my system named Gwledyr. This Beagle appears to be lost and should be leashed. We should talk at your leisure. E-mail me when you get a moment
  8. Draco - Galactic Directory

    While awaiting publication of the great Galactic Directory, I thought I would compare notes with others. My explorations have found two unusual systems that appear to be Galactic hubs with 9 warp points leading to each of them. Has anyone else been finding "hubs" like these? Anyone find a world with more warp points than 9 leading to them? Anyone care to project how these kind of "hub" systems will affect strategy and tactics as the game develops and players find themselves with neighbors along large border areas? I am blessed that these systems are EXTREMELY far from my homeworld but I would develop a paranoia about defending them if they were close to my homeworld.

    How cryptic! looks like my Emperor will be firing up the royal space yacht and head for the nearest unexplored warp point to discover what his "skilled advisors" are capable of! i
  11. Exploration

    The concept of the Emperor being a jack of all trades is an interesting one. I have just seen a photo of "Emperor" Kim Jong Un (of the star system North Korea) giving "instruction" to his nuclear scientists. Given my emperor is twice as smart and thrice as good looking as Kim Jong Un then cracking a H warp point under his supervision should be no problem at all. I still look forward to Pete's comments on his suggestion that an Emperor might be able to crack a warp point.
  12. Exploration

    Pete could you please elaborate? An Emperor can help crack warp points???? My "Emperor" in every game is listed as a diplomat. Can a diplomat help crack warp points?

  14. Draco Alert!

    Having just started playing, anyone able to provide me a decent warship setup to deal with a basic DMX fleet? Anything with any combination of armor or weapon strength greater than the enemy total defense and attack power will carry the day. Don't dwell on details, just get sufficient armor and weapons. The biggest concern is guessing how many enemy ships you will face. The have been seen in packs of 3 or 6 light cruisers and now we are starting to see a heavy cruiser added to the mix. Zero, one, or two minelayers can also be in the fleet. I guess you prepare for the worst and hope for the best if you don't have recon ships ahead of your fleet.
  15. Draco Alert!

    A new variety of fleet organization was seen this turn. I saw a new combination of 3 light and 1 heavy cruisers with the same ship types as previously reported. I destoyed 3 light cruisers and 2 minelayers in another DMX fleet.
