Small Galaxy
« on: September 10, 2011, 07:47:49 AM »
I just downloaded Aurora recently and in the game I started last night I ran into an odd problem.  I was playing with the default values for everything and everything was going swimmingly for my fledgling empire.  I'd found a couple good sources of minerals, started my efforts to form colonies, had a fledgling navy, and was rapidly exploring the neighboring stars.  Then I discovered they were all dead ends.  Including my starting system my galaxy seemed to consist of only 6 solar systems. 

Is this a bug? Extreme bad luck? Something else?

Are you sure you did a full gravitational survey of all systems around you?

Extreme bad luck then.

I thisk you can use a sm option to add new jump points to sistems in the F9 window, you could try that.

Positive.
I asked this because you might have played with a full grav survey without knowing what it is and thus not surveying the other systems.
SM option is your only (100% sure and short term) option than.

Oh well, I thought maybe there was a hidden jump point or something that you had to do more than just grav survey the system to find.  I guess I'll try to SM in some ones.  Thanks for the quick replies!

There are hidden jump points (dormant jump points) but they can only be opened from the other side.
I think they exists to solve problems like you have. Such a small 'mini-galaxy' is very strange though.

Actually, I thought that dormant ones were supposed to be non-existent ones, only being opened(created) because the RNG decided to pick a system that's already surveyed to be the destination of a new Jump Point.

I don't know. Not that it matters, as in-game both systems would behave the same way.

That's correct.  They're related to "closed" warp points in StarFire.
