Order Codes Definitions


Recommended Posts



It's not hard to tell that I'm new around here but I'm a fan of PBEM games and SuperNova looks looks like a real winner to me. The only problem I'm going through is the overwhelming learning curve of this game. When I first saw the Turn Entry Program, I almost turned off the computer to walk away. Thankfully, with some determination and searching for helpful information on this forum, I'm getting a hang of it.


However, I couldn't find any lists here to help explain all of the Order Codes definitions on the TEP. So I took it upon myself to type these little buggers out. :D


Be seeing you around galaxy. :huh:

Neil, there are lots of helpful people here on the forum so if you have any questions, ask. Many of us have been down that same steep learning curve.


Thanks and trust me, I'll be asking plenty of questions as time goes on the further I get into the game. For now, I'll be turtling and building my empire up. One thing I don't understand is why the Order Supplement isn't part of the Rule Book. The two walk perfectly hand in hand and would have made my first turn experience less hair pulling. :wacko:


Actually, I have a question: I have a couple moons in my system for a source of fuel. Can I order my ships into orbit and skim for fuel all in the same turn?

Yes you can do it all in one turn.


Here is what I do.


place colony beacon on planet/moon that is good for refueling

build skimmer ships

create convoy route as follows


OC pop group #XXXXXX

You then assign you skimming fleets to this convoy route. Every turn they will skim fuel and drop it into a pop group. Then you build a tanker to go pick up the fuel and take it to the HW or where ever you want it.

Yes, NM (1 ap) plus SKIM (1 ap). 200 tons immediately upon execution of skim order with one fuel shuttle at a gas giant. Lesser amounts for different atmospheres.
