Mentara Posted November 3, 2007 Report Share Posted November 3, 2007 Hi, Just joined, got my first turn and having spent about 4 days reading every post since time began, i thought that before i exploded i should check some of the basics. I am planning on staying in my system until i get the hang of things... plus there is nothing easily colonisable in my home system so i'll build my homeworld. A quick one to start us off: 1. My turn shows me a nice empty graph at the beginning called Life Form Modifiers. Should there be something in this? 2. For all my yielding materials iron, lumber etc. I think i have the various equations but want to check: Iron Yield 512 = 2660 mines and 761036 production which needs 2660 population to do so. Do they all cost 500 construction materials to build? What do i get back for scrapping strip mining? 3. There was mention of a 100-1 rule when talking about having more than 1 population centre something about it making your 10-1 buildings more efficient? Completely lost me :-) What is a 100-1 rule? 4. I have hydroeclectic potential 204 so was planning to scrap my fission plants and build hydro generators based on the forum advice. But i don't know what it costs to build them - nor fission plants for that matter? 5. I managed to find this as a base explorer vessel... any good? 1 Mk I Nuclear Engine 25000 Cargo Bays 3 Fighter Bays 3 Drone Rack 25000 Fuel Tankage 1 Mk I Nuclear Jump Drive 5 Type A Science Lab 5 Survey Lander 5 Light Magnetic Grapnels 1 Mk I Computer System 6. Exploration - lets say i am exploring a planet... can i only do that once or as many times as i like? If so des the return get less and less or the chance getless and less? 7. A little confused by AP's. My home planet tells me it takes 0.5 AP's to get to it... or is this distance from the sun? 8. Presumably if i scrap things i get that population back to work with? 9. If scrapping ships do i get the major and minor components back or do i get the actual items on the ship? i.e. iron or jump drive? 10. Given how i am not really planning to leave the system right now should i scrap the pathfinders and focus on the new explorer ships who have some cargo space? 11. I can't find anywhere that tells me where my stored research points are (the ones from not taking all my points into my lifeform) 12. My world is pretty damn freezing (dim redsun and all) and covered in toxc polllution - if anyone knows some useful things i should be researching/installing specfically for this it would be appreciated. 13. Do only mines and shipyards need power? And is it 1 power per mine and 100 per shipyard / stripmine? 14. I read i a few posts that we need to produce 500 construction materials a turn for every pop unit? Is that correct? 15. Last (for now) is it fair to say if i am sticking to my homeworld i need a Deep Core Surveyor ASAP? Thanks in advance for anyone who can help out!
