Hi Everyone,

I've been playing the game for a few weeks now and had a few looks around this forum and in chat, so I thought it was about time I properly introduce myself here too.

Since tassle was taken on IRC, I use Eastwood as my nick there.

As I said, I only discovered this game a few weeks ago. I've been playing it whenever I had the chance and I am lovin it!! I am also getting a little frustrated, as I seem to get killed around every new corner I turn at the moment and I get the impression I am missing out on half or more of what the game has to offer me right now. But I am sticking to it and am sure I will succeed in the end. I might be asking some silly questions here before that happens tho.

tassle : WELCOME.

There are no questions stupider then the ones I ask : i got the copyrights on those :)
and you should be lucky you missed some of my worse ones -- and my very bad ideas :) LOL

taking the game without the defenses we have at our fingertips is NOT easy which makes a regular player the most valuable item in the game for the Developer and extension makers : your questions, thought are extremely interesting to us all.

The beauty of this game is that YOU, the normal player , can inquire....and teams of minds crunch .xml to duplicate and experiment with what concerned you to see if it can be made harder or easier ( but not too easy )..and if it works out to be popular.....it COULD become part of a future version.

every official version of the game was not simply the Awesomeness of the developer, it was the players that led the game in the direction it went : otherwise you would still be playing with squares and rectangles and OMG what was THAT? :)

With each new level comes Technology that can help you gain a foothold into the up-comming level : your biggest threats prior to the Capital are the Corsair II and Drake : but you will get the technology to arm against them: if you are low on credits : missions and mining are the easiest way to gain credits: often mining colonies give you the missions so you can buy the mining laser to mine with later ( very useful , mining to me is fuel consuming but relaxing : I go after Solar Armor or a Solar Panel Array to save credits on fuel )

IN the capital you will meet other Hostiles or collections of them to gain experience with before you leave the system: take advantage of that, these very same hostiles can NOT call for help in the capital : so it's just you and them and you have the entire capital backing you up : all you have to do is run toward a major station and they will take the hostiles on with you.. when in trouble use the "I" button on your keyboard ( requires relationship with Domina, visit the Sisters for more options on how to do that ) and or find a rock to hide on while you refuel, repair or get your shield up.

I don't like to kill pirates in cold blood ..I do it.. but I don't like it..

Thanks guys ! I'll go and read up a bit more and I'll try not to post too many questions already answered elsewhere.
