In this devlog we have trolling, and planet updates.
The Arclight project is getting popular, popular enough for Rwinner16 to troll the CX project by subverting the naming contest and using his supporter perks to name HM-049b Poseidon and also name the system Mount Olympus.
This is no small feat as the two perks cost 299 EUR and 169 EUR respectively, and Rwinner16 is a Universe level supporter. While it is flattering that Real-life money was thrown at the contest, I am saddened by the contest being subvert, and the loss of the work that went into some of the names chosen for HM-049b.
The names chosen will instead be used to name OF-259(as now we have a system perk “freed up”
With POPI stabilized for this week the population is rapidly growing, to the point that a second SST will be needed as two more project members drop bases down on Ementior. The Warehouse is complete so people can start posting orders.
This planet is reaching starter-planet populations.
This planet has seen incredible growth lead by project supporters. Basic pioneer infrastructure, Local Market and Warehouse have been completed. The population could reach over 7500 pioneers quickly.
The Local market is seeing demand for smelted AL, and L-fabs, as well as selling carbon.
Gateway B, is a fuel-resource drop off point as this planet is 12 hrs from any of the focus planets while being 24hrs away from Benten. Gravy is running point on this project if you want to ask him questions.
Has reached official focus planet status with over 1000 population. As LI when smelted is pretty light for a metal, this is a key planet in the Arclight sector, as the LI/HAL combination is rare. The excess HAL has also allowed Benten CX to gain access to HAL on the open market.
