It seems like I either get writing done for Drox, or I play it. I can't seem to manage both in a single day. Oh, the humanity! :D

My ship is level 18 I think. I just got a new slot for light equipment, which is great because I really needed two items to feed my energy addiction. Crew are light equipment too. I used to use 4 of them but now I only use 3. I sucks when they get pissy and want to be paid but they really bump up my stats. A lot.

I don't have any armor on my ship, but I do have shields. You have some tough choices about how to outfit your ship because of... power levels (which I always call weight and Steven always corrects me!).

I can't wait for you guys to get to play it! Would anyone like to hear what equipment I'm using?

Don't kill me, I used to know how to do screenshots. But now, not so much. Also, I'm just told over my shoulder that Steven and Steve must approve screenshots. :(

My ship is level 21 human.
Heavy Components:*Budget Nuclear Drive III +10 Defense, +220 Thrust, +11 Thermal Resistance, +16 Explosion Resistance
*Laser IV 30.7 damage/second, +12 Explosion Resistance, +101 Power Load (cost), +35% durability
*Cheap Nuclear Power Plant IV +417 Max Power Load, +56 Attack Cheap *Fighter Bay III ship level 16, energy cost , reuse sec., +121 Power Load (cost), +47% durability
Medium Components: (Just a sec, tornado sirens are going off...)
*Cheap Advanced Deflectors II +162 Max Shields, +113 Power Load (cost), 49% durability
*Superior Supercomputer I +108 Defense, +216 Attack, +13 Kinetic Resistance, +11 Explosion Resistance
*Cheap Heavy Battery II +148 Max Energy +111 Power Load (cost), +37% durability
*Solar Array IV +178 Max Power Load, +12 Explosion Resistance
Light Components: (One more sec, Steven says it sounds weird outside...)
(Okay, it sounds like something between thunder and like we live near an airport.)
**Crew
*Sexton (Dryad) (These names will probably change...) +3 Helm, +4 Structural, +5 Computers
*Humphrey (Fringe) (This guy is my most pissy crew) +5 Tactical, +4 Engineering, +6 Computers
*Meadolf (Lithosoid) +5 Helm, +5 Structural, +6 Engineering
**Equipment
*Cheap Battery Recharge III +4 Energy Regen, +44 Power Load (cost)
*Budget Battery Backup I - Adds 120 Energy, reuse 1 minute, +25 Power Load (cost)

Okay, we've finally got some lightning, but no rain... Just a few drops. So... As of 2:37 pm central time, we are all doing fine. Not sure about Steve the artist. He might be closer to the storms. I'll check on that.

More Sirens... Maybe there's a closet in my near future?

Good luck! Stay safe.

All is well! No bad stuff in our neck of the woods. Pretty sure Steve H is good too. I ended up having to pick up the kids from school though... The busses hadn't even started by 5 pm.

Glad to hear you all made out okay. We tend to have a few tornado alerts here in TN as well, so I understand the concerns.

Sounds like your captain is broke or really just likes to use rusty old cheap/budget parts. :)

Three crew members from three different species. Are they all playing nice with one another? Why is Humphrey so grumpy?

It looks like you have a fighter bay installed? What does the ship level 16 indicate? Does that mean your captain/ship is level 21 but your drones/fighters are only level 16? Do they level up or do you need to acquire a better component to get them to a higher level?

Also, are any of the other species actively trying to gun you down yet?

Humphrey is probably grumpy because either she hasn't been very nice to the Fringe or Humphrey has worked a while and not been payed.

As for the fighters, she just needs to find a newer and better fighter bay.

I have to pay that bastard all the time! I've only had one game with the Fringe as far as I know, and they died pretty quick. I had nothing to do with it. (Yes, I know balancing is still underway.)

I just got an interceptor bay with level 17 ships. Woohoo! I love those little guys... They make great decoys when I need to run like hell.

I do have some better parts in storage, but I don't have enough Power Load to equip them yet.

Very cool! Grats on your new interceptor bay.

I was testing Drox today. In the game there were 5 races, 4 of which were on great terms with me. But one race who was in last place and had only one planet, didn't like me. So I thought I'd eliminate them from the competition. So I declared war on them. As soon as I did, I lost the game! Turns out I didn't think to check to see that all other races were either allied with him or loved that race, so as soon as I declared war on them, all the other races declared war on me simultaneously. Case closed! wow! :rolleyes:
