Galactic News: Weekly Economic Report

In this weekly digest the latest GalNet data is compiled to show the economic states for a short list of minor factions and the star systems they inhabit.
The following minor factions are currently enjoying an economic boom:Boom is usually the result of consistent trade profit and completed trade contracts. When a faction experiences a boom, the wealth of the system it controls temporarily increases and trade missions completed in the system have double the effect on influence. The faction's influence may also increase. Booms typically last until they naturally expire.

These minor factions are suffering an economic bust:When a faction experiences a bust, the wealth of the system it controls is temporarily reduced and the faction's influence is temporarily diminished. Trade actions do not contribute to boom while a bust is active. A bust typically has to run its course before ending.
NOTE: Data is correct at time of publishing.

Freelance Report: GalCop Mobilizes to Aid Jaques Station

Since contact with Jaques Station was re-established, a substantial effort from independent pilots to deliver meta-alloys to the stricken starport has returned it to partial functionality.

With the commodities market now open, Jaques has issued an appeal for the components needed to restore his station to full operational status. The Galactic Cooperative of Worlds has pledged to ensure the success of the initiative, having secured a logistical supply chain and established an operational beachhead in the surrounding sectors.

Jahena Yar Savor, GalCop's Chief Executive Officer, said that the Cooperative would "establish a localised resource base in the systems surrounding Jaques in order to offset the financial burden of securing these resources. Many of our pilots and member organisations acquired substantial wealth during the Dangerous Games, and we thought it would only be fair to use these assets to aid a friend."

Galactic News: Weekly Expansion Report


Here are the latest factions to have expanded into new systems:Expansions occur when a minor faction reaches a sufficient level of influence and there is a populated system within striking distance. Expansion is costly, so when a faction expands, the wealth and development level of the system it controls are temporarily reduced.

Freelance Report: A Year of Buckyball Racing

The Buckyball Racing Club was formed, one year ago, to provide a schedule of races involving a wide variety of pilots. In its first year the club hosted a total of 28 races, and to celebrate it is hosting one of its craziest yet: the BuckyBubble!

Commemorating the club's most famous race, the A* Challenge, the BuckyBubble starts at Lomas Station in the Wolf 359 system. Racers will navigate a route that passes through 60 systems loosely resembling the shape of a buckyball molecule.

Pilots are invited to join the chaos from the 23rd of July to the 7th of August.

Inara updates

CMDR's log changes

Today's Inara update with some fixes, improvements and overhauls:
  • CMDR's log changes - there was completely changed how are ranks, reputation, and similar set. The previous achievements were transformed to a history log (so deleting entries from the achievements doesn't affect your ranks or reputations anymore) and as announced previous week, there was also removed an option to change the entry date (also for credits entries). It was inevitable for maintaining continuity with the future game journal imports (and this change is introduced beforehand, to make sure there are no issues with those changes). There is possible that some additional features (like reputation with minor factions) will be added later.
  • There were also additional privacy settings, an option to set rank progression and other tweaks in CMDR's log added. Please note that in some rare cases may be your rating with a Power set incorrectly, fix that in your profiles when needed. Also, there was auto-set of your current location by market page visited removed (most of you has it disabled anyway).
  • Custom rank names for wings added, also there are new options for supported/preferred wing platform (both can be set on your wing edit page), appropriate filters on the wings listings page and an additional field in the wings history edit for records visible just to wing members.

From the past

There are a handful of known exoplanets with three host stars, and quite a few out there with two suns. Where does all this multistar madness end? Is it possible for alien planets to have four, five, six or even more suns?

The sun erupted with a M7.6-class flare on July 23rd, 2016. The blast was the second of three m-class flares that occurred in a time span of a few hours (the 2nd and 3rd flares were only separated by 15 minutes).

Yevgeny Chertovsky (Russian: Евгений Чертовский; born February 15, 1902, date of death unknown) was a Soviet Russian inventor who designed the first full pressure suit in Leningrad in 1931.

Chertovsky, an engineer of Aviation Medicine Institute, was involved in early Soviet stratospheric balloon program, and co-designed the ill-fated Osoaviakhim-1. The first aircraft designed for crew wearing Chertovsky's pressure suits could have been a gigantic (300,000 cubic meters) USSR-3 balloon that burnt down on launch pad in September 1935.
