Re: Hostile shipyard at Gunsan leads to incomplete mission

Something similar can happen with the Huari missions. When defending one of their fortresses against the sung fleet, one og my Gotha 400 missiles hit the fortress instead of the Earth slaver next to it. Instantly, the fortress became hostile and started firing on me instead of on the last remaining ...

Re: Saving Jenna

Storing >200k goods in an abandoned station after having destroyed and looted 3 salvagers in the system. Finding out there was a fourth one that stole all my stored loot. Killing a randomly passing ship, to act as bait for the salvager. As the salvager shows up, it is met with my missiles, blows up ...

Re: EU new copyright law

Indeed every county will have to ratify the proposals according to it's own laws. But then again, the European parliament vote has no meaning whatsoever, because they have no real power and are only an advisory part for the European Commission. Only the European Commission (you can't vote for them) ...

Re: Netherlands/Holland

Simple answer, if you try to apply for a passport from Holland, you will get nothing. Same goes for visa and other official documents. Look in your OS, it does not have a country setting named "Holland" . If you are anywhere in the world and ask for the embassy of Holland, in most countries you will...

Re: Couple of simple Suggestions.

@Derakon: No there is no guaranteed Tinker in Rigel, nor in any other system.

In my current game, there has not yet been any Tinker station at all and I am several systems past st. Kats.

Re: Netherlands/Holland

Well alright then, it is true that most people from (north/south)Holland use Holland as the Country name. It also holds true that most people from the other provinces do not, they use The Netherlands. Some other Countries have the same (even worse) issue, like China for example, which is also in fac...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

That is why the difficult explanation is there, read the constitution of The Ntherlands, this explains everything in great detail. Yet it is ofcourse a difficult document to read and quite large. The advantage is that you'll learn a great deal about our country, how it is currently being (mis)admini...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

Holland as the country name is correct, ( The ) Netherlands as the country name is correct Sometimes, people use one of our city's to refer to our nation; Amsterdam ^^ Unfortunately you are wrong, although there were times in history that you were right...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

I can do that and thanks. Would CSC-II Netherlands or CSC-II The Netherlands be the more correct form? I'm clueless on this sort of interpretation (and on geography as well). "The Netherlands" is official, but Netherlands is okay too. In fact it is an abbreviation of "Kingdom of the Netherlands" we...

Re: CSC screen descriptions

Just a little comment from a dutchman, Holland is only a province of the Netherlands. So if you name CSC's after countries, you should change Holland to The Netherlands instead. (we have north and south Holland as provinces actually)....

Re: Missing Huari

Usually I have no problems with either The Sung, or Charon Pirates. The lone Huari station was already very damaged when I got there. I was just saying that the Korolov missions were ALMOST impossible, certainly if you are new to the game when there is only one Korolov station. A new player does not...

Re: Missing Huari

Have had this once, only one Huari station in the game about 2 systems past Jiangs star. The station was destroyed by the Sung fleet during the mission to protect it so the Huari mission line was not possible in that game. Same can happen with Korolov, sometimes the only station is the one in Charon...

Re: 1.8 Release

Upgrading from 1.7 does not work for me as well, I'm getting a "unable to replace existing files" message after the download has completed.
