He started asking me to build a CV and come and get him be i didn't have the materials plus the build time was over an hour soLOL. What a penis. I take it you didn't make one then? Wouldn't have been so bad if we actually had a backup, but that got destroyed on the very same planet he went to only the other day. Only a complete yoghurt would do it again on their own when no rescue was available.
I did a load of mining for iron and got 4 loads of 999 ingots + 500 more ore to process so i kept 2 for my CV and put the rest in the processed ore box. I have enough iron for my CV now just have to get all the rest of what i need. I like your idea of processing the ore on your ship whilst mining, i took my gunship mining and every so often went back and shoved more ore in the constructor . Also grouped stuff on board so shut down everthing except the constructor and the fridgeWow, that's good - we should have plenty of iron now then (I got 2 stacks too, so we are covered). Nice one! Yeah, it's the way to go. Group all the non-essentials so you can turn them off and just let the ship sit their processing while you mine.
Yes i thought the landing pad i built was pretty big but two gunboats and 2 fighters fills it up. I had a quick look in creative and even the Polaris and the other little CV dwarf my gunboat. So perhaps we need to extend the base out onto that lake, a bit Atlantis style with a centre hub and 3/4 hugh landing pads on the corners for CV it will need a lot of steel blocks thoughYes, I was going to suggest this - we could also then build in O2 thingies straight into the base for easy access over the water.
How long shall we leave john marooned?He seemed desperate to get off there when I spoke to him today - so much so that he was thinking of committing suicide just to get back to our planet. I urged him not to do this, but he is so impatient that I doubt he will listen. If my ship is complete tonight I can go and get him and all the ore. Then we will have some Zacosium to get us started on the good stuff.
No I didn't build anything to go and get him i was laughing too muchI know the feeling
By all means build your CV ship but make sure it has automated defense turrets. Or wait for back up from my CV then we can both go to get him together then we stand a better chance. It would be bad for you to lose your ship and get marooned as well!The one I am building can defend itself, it has a few turrets and should do us proud.
John will fresh start i am sure he has no patience but maybe he could bury all the ore he has mined so it is safe then we can go and get it when we have 2 x CV shipsHe mentioned he may possibly put all the ore in his orbiting station (the one that blew his warp core up) so we can just jump in, get the ore and jump back out. Assuming no plasma drones are hanging around this should work nicely, but I honestly do not know what he is going to do, because, as we said, he is too impatient - and not really very much a "team player".
I might make a start on Atlantis when i am waiting for my CV to build which one are you going for?Sounds good, I will come and help you I think. I had about 400 steel blocks on the go in PREPARATION for making the pad, so can make a good start.
