But... it isn't 'really long ranged shots'.  The B and C components almost overlap!  Oh well, I will do some experiments, it isn't like I have anything else to do with my probe launching scout pinnace.

In other news, the system that I face checked with basic sensors, either I didn't bother scouting the outermost planet, or that was insufficient to discover precursors, who reacted violently to the survey ship that popped over their heads.  Apparently, 20 minute sub-phase and things just pop into detection range.  Oops.

In other news, the size 50 commercial engine survived a cumulative 47 points of damage, and only failed when it took the last 3 points.  Needless to say, there will be an inquest.  And future geo survey ships may have some sensors, not to keep them OUT of danger, but to provide useful intelligence when the scouting failed.

And 250 ton scouts with basic sensors will no longer be relied upon to give an all clear for a system that was scouted with a large sub-phase increment.

Holy Sh*t

I've started a new game by generating a system with SM, rp-ing as a lost colony of the Terran Federation, the Free Republic of New Rome. (basically playing as Romans in space)

I SM-ed my empire on a suitable moon of a superjovian in the Aquilae 11 system. After setting everything up and starting by ordering my geosurvey ships to survey the nearby planets I've got a nasty surprise. Aliens occupying the same moon with a large fleet of ships orbiting.
I don't remember SM-ing any NPR's or other Empires on my homeworld. How is this possible?  :o

Is there any way out of this?  ;D

First, double-check your Default Race (Ctrl F2) isn't still set to Earth/Humans.  Those scary "aliens" might just be your own empire viewed by outsiders.

Then SM Mode delete them.  Alternately, SM Mode generate a few new systems, pick one you like, terraform and move your entire civilization there.  If necessary, SM Mode break the warp point links to your old home.

If you're unhappy about wiping an entire race out of existence, use the 'Add NPR' button on the F9 System screen to spawn a new one.

What probably happened was that you didn't turn off the "Generate NPRs" option before creating a bunch of systems, so Aurora found a suitable world and spawned one just like in a normal game. As far as I know, there is no way to delete an NPR without database access.

Yes that may be possible. I remember generating 6-8 systems before I found the right one.

Maybe I should give this nightmare scenario a shot. I don't know on what technological level these aliens are and I'm totally outnumbered (having only two meagerly armed and armored scout frigates). Taking the same system truce mechanic into account, I could build up my navy and ground forces while remaining "friendly" with the "invaders". As soon as I have sufficient ships and ground troops, I will launch an offensive and try to kick these aliens out of my system, or die trying.  ;D

It sounds like a good idea for a fiction or AAR.  :D

That beautiful moment when you find a survey report of;
Duranium 11 664 450 (0.1)
Corbomite 79 655 620 (0.1)
Tritanium 32 148 900 (0.1)
Boronide 54 022 500 (0.1)
Mercassium 77 792 400 (0.1)
Sorium 97 416 900 (0.1)
Uridium 49 491 220 (0.1)
Corundium 19 448 100 (0.1)
Gallicite 87 329 020 (0.1)

just one jump away from Earth. I don't even care about the low accessibility, this will sort me out for decades to come.

Finally finished their survey, got Neutronium 9 272 025 (0.1) and Gallicite went up to 99 500 625 still at (0.1). All I need now is for my terraformers to actually do some work on Lacaille A-VII so I can colonise the system.

I've realized that I should stop building ships! My navy is absolutely massive, with over 4.5 million tons of warships. I've made a spreadsheet to help track how many ships I've got.

I'm back to this game after a long time (monitor doesn't support the required resolution and I'd been too lazy to do a workaround).

Started a conventional start (so low tech), 3 of the 5 jump points out of Sol are barren, and the only close in jump point (Mars orbit) is a chain of THREE barren systems before getting anything good.  My poor ships having to crawl forever just to get anyplace interesting  :(

Only saving grace is they're all M and T type stars, so the jump points are all close in.

Small update, something I overlooked earlier.  While the transit times aren't great for a low tech empire, Alpha Centauri has been kind to me.  It's one jump away from Sol, and in the span of 6 years I've managed to terraform 3 planets to colony cost 0.  They were simply that close to habitable.  All have tons of minerals, though generally 0.1 accessibility, and one even had a small set of ruins.  It's going to be hard to not move the center of my empire into this system.

Yes! 1st Carrier is coming on line in 3 months time, time to build its fighters... Only to find out that there is no fighter factories in the Empire :o ... Someone forgot to order those factories... ;D

I just did the same, but with missiles.  Having an already spread out empire makes building the infrastructure from the ground up all that more challenging.
