Friendly castes outnumbered & outgunned

Recommended Posts

In a future patch update, I will implement code which has stations launch a pair of escorts for

non-hostile careers.

I also plan on implementing the ability to emit an SOS transponder so that a station can answer your distress call and send in re-inforcements. This is in my XP1 wish list, but I'll probably include it in a BCM patch.

I realize that non-hostile castes are having a hard time out there. But until I come up with this and other solutions, stick close to your stations and ensure that you are no more than 1 or 2 jumps away from safety. And if you want to mine and roam around freely, go to the sub-regions of Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune and Uranus. You'll have the entire regions to yourself.

That wuold be a great improvement. The stations do seem a bit inactive - it's rare, in fact I've seen it, to see them launch all their fighters, and having them reach out and protect the non-hostiles would provide even deeper immersion, IMO.

Thank You SC!

Maybe now those of us who just want to explore the universe will have a better chance to do so.

Also thank you for the advice on safe regions to fly around in. That will be helpful to the newbies who are just trying to get a handle on how to fly their CC and still want to be able to save their game. LOL, you could even nickname those regions "the Newbies creche".

I am very happy now...

Gamaliel out.

Thanks, SC! This problem is exactly what inspired my thread on what to do if attacked and unarmed. This'll make my (current AE's) life much easier too.

All the same, I'm starting to get the hang of avoiding trouble...

Awesome. That's definetly been my second biggest complaint so far, so it'd be great to see the friendly castes get a bit more help. Man, and as if the game wasn't great enough already.
