Meta-Alloy Sale Announced at Darnielle's Progress

Business leaders Darnielle's Progress in the Maia system have announced a sale of meta-alloys. Their spokesman, Larry Oldman, had this to say.

"We have a stockpile of meta-alloys, and in the current climate it would be foolish for us to ignore the income potential for them."

Researchers, including Professor Palin, who operates from the same system, have declared the move as unwise.

"We don't know the full potential of these materials, and selling them to just anybody could be a recipe for disaster."

Freelance Report: Sideris Remains Open Minded

Cynthia Sideris, chair of Universal Cartographics, made a brief comment outside UC headquarters this morning on Jasmina Halsey's ostensibly unsuccessful search for the "architects of creation":

"Whether or not President Halsey's 'architects' exist is open to question, but chances are that some form of non-human sentience exists in our galaxy. We've received data from as far as Beagle Point, but even that represents only an infinitesimal fraction of known stars in the galaxy. We can only keep looking."

President Halsey's psychological review continues.

Galactic News: Weekly Conflict Report

This weekly transmission takes the latest GalNet data and lists some of the systems currently in conflict around the galaxy.
Here are minor factions involved in a civil war:Civil wars occur when minor factions compete for control of major assets such as starports. When a faction is involved in a civil war, the standard of living, development level and security level in the system it controls are temporarily reduced. Combat activities can bring a civil war to an end.

The following are minor factions at war:Wars occur when a minor faction invades a star system controlled by another minor faction. For the duration of the war, the standard of living, wealth level and security level in the disputed system are reduced. Combat activity between the two warring factions determines the outcome of the conflict. If neither faction succeeds in dominating the other, the war ends in a ceasefire.
NOTE: Data is correct at time of publishing.

Community Goal: The Skvortsov Orbital Hangover

The party to celebrate the successful conclusion of the Distant Worlds Expedition has been a tremendous success, with festivities at Skvortsov Orbital lasting for several days. But the revelry has come at a cost, as it seems 63 G. Capricorni is now in the grip of a system-wide hangover.

A member of staff at Skvortsov Orbital said: "Those Diamond Frogs really know how to throw a party. Seriously, I've never seen anything like it. At one point, the security chief was dancing on a table and screaming about wanting to be a showgirl."

The starport's chief of security declined to comment, although rumours that he has resigned his position to fulfil his secret ambitions remain unsubstantiated. His office issued the following statement:

"The celebrations were a great success, but now it's time to clean up. We are therefore asking independent pilots to deliver hazardous environment suits, water purifiers and coffee to help the system get back on its feet."

The Diamond Frogs have once again stepped in, promising to reward pilots who deliver the much-needed commodities to Skvortsov Orbital in the 63 G. Capricorni system. The campaign begins on the 26th of May 3302 and will run for one week. If the final target is met earlier than planned, the campaign will end immediately.

Galactic News: Federation Assumes Control of Neits

After a week of intense conflict, Neits Jet Life Ltd confirmed that its forces have successfully neutralised the GR 316 Silver Universal Group in the Neits system.

The fighting began when ships belonging to the Federation-aligned Neits Jet Life Ltd came under fire from the GR 316 Silver Universal Group, an Imperial organisation. As the conflict escalated, both sides called in support from independent combat pilots, but ultimately it was Neits Jet Life Ltd who emerged victorious.

With the system now under official Federal control, Admiral Yorke of the Federal Navy released the following statement:

"The remaining GR 316 Silver Universal Group forces have retreated from Neits, allowing Neits Jet Life Ltd to assume control of the system. Neits will now enjoy all the benefits of being an official Federal enclave, including the protection of the Federal Navy."

Inara updates

Engineers on Inara

New game update - Engineers is going live today, so there are related (and also unrelated) updates for Inara:
  • New feature: Engineers and components lists in the Galaxy tab. Please be aware there may be some incomplete or slightly inaccurate stuff as data is based on the game beta version and things may change. But let's hope it will be precised in the upcoming days and weeks. Also, there is blueprints list planned and will be added later, when enough data collected for it. I must also express thanks to Qohen Leth, Alex Brentnall and many other community members for providing initial data from the beta.
  • New feature: Commodities, rare goods and salvage lists in the Galaxy tab. It's mostly what was/is buried deeper in the Market, but with minor enhancements and lot of new commodities added.
  • New feature: Wing roles. Wing officers can now assign roles to their members which gives them some additional rights, unrelated to their rank. Hopefully it will help with day-to-day wing "administrative".
  • Minor improvements across the site as usual, implemented new format for flight logs (the old format was also kept, I hope it will work without any issues), Search improvements and few new radio stations added (you can also hear tracks by Matthew Florianz (FDev) on Black Rock station, sometimes), and so on...
Enjoy the Engineers!
