Arclight Frontier(Ementior) Development log Gateway b(half-way station) WAR and LM built

Official flag by [UL] wyago | WW

Greetings from Ementior

Arclight Frontier is centred around Ementior(AM-783c)

Why Ementior?

The NEO faction is one of the most powerful factions in the game due to the rare combination of FEO and LST on Montem and the constructor option being one of the most powerful starts.

Like Montem, Ementior is the only tier one world to have ALO and LST on the same planet, which allows construction of tier one and two buildings, and also allows expansion to other worlds.

Ementior also has a nearby fertile world in HM-049b, two jumps away, which also possesses Silicon, needed to make glass.

Due to the new starter planets being farming/water planets, now more then ever a construction-based CX and starter planet is needed.

Participants: Currently, Frostwood, Haestrom, Dover, [MKM] Gravy, [FOWL] Astos, Joronimo, skullbearer, WaffleKing91, Daemeus, Sintheras, Esabab, Kiripirin, Corlis, Debris, xensored

Corporations:: Mao-Kwikowski Mercantile, Nemesis

If you want to be listed please post below and I will add you.

Focus system:: AM-783

Focus Planets:

Tier: 1
Resources:  ALO, LST, MGS(trace), AMM(trace)
Current Pop: 11,658 Pioneers, 2,489 Settlers, 2 Technicians
Current Infrastructure:  SST, INF, Local Market.

HM-049b(3 jumps from Ementior)
Resources:  H2O, SIO, AMM, O, Fertile.
Current Pop: 1,716 Pioneers, 4 Settlers, 1 Technician
Current Infrastructure:  Local Market

Tier: 3(INS, HSE)
Resources: LI, HAL
Current Pop: 690 pioneers, 7 settlers
Current Infrastructure: None

Other planets:

Gateway B(Gravy): No resources of importance, however it’s 12 hrs to Ementior and 24 hrs to Benten, making it a perfect drop-off point.

HM-301 d: Outside focus planet range for scoring, but has a rare BRM/CLI combo for future which is needed in large quantities for higher-tier populations, also has access to Helium as well

Faction Target: CIS/Castillo-Ito Mercantile


For the CX contest, Rather then 300 discords I’m going to work from the Ementior section of the UFO discord. Unified Faction Operations is the discord- type in !join Ementior in the access-request section of the discord, for those wanting to co-ordinate.

People have been asking how to help. I’ve separated the settlement plan into phases for HM-049b and Ementior.

Phase 1

SST(Safety Station) and INF(Infirmary)

As both Ementior and HM-049b have local markets, these initial buildings will allow the expansion needed to form fully functioning bases.

Phase 2

Warehouse- As brought up by Haestrom this will be need to co-ordinate Local Market orders without a CX and for HM-049b to sell it’s DW/RAT/SIO/GL/C.

Phase 3
ADM - This will be needed to establish a stable government and maintain the planetary infrastructure effectively.

Phase 4

COGC -mainly for points, but also for the production benefits.

Other things that will help:

Settling bases on these planets will help with our score with the added population, and allow better maintenance of the existing infrastructure. Occasional contributions to the planetary projects outlined above will also help.

Looking forward to seeing Ementior develop!

I was looking to this region for my next base, specifically OF-259d. I’d be happy to add my efforts to yours.

I look forward to Settling the Arclight Frontier with you Frostwood. I have around 5-8 players from FOWL that are excited to join this collective effort. We are purchasing and producing fabs to ready ourselves for the journey shortly.


I will join this madness. :slight_smile: ^^As part of the 5-8.


Yeah, I’ll be coming along too.


And my axe! (also as part of the 5-8)


I’m already at Ementior and eager to continue expanding the region. Whatever I can do to help!

I will be adding a base on Ementior, so please add me as well. :slight_smile:

I’ll be heading to Ementior in a few days as well and possible one or two other bases in that area in the coming weeks, so sign me up!

So… If we win this contest, we’ll need system names for Ementior(system) and HM-043, and planet names for HM-049b, OF-259d, and a third planet-which might be Gateway b, or maybe HM-301 d.

I’ll collect the names and put it to a vote in the forum thread like the planetary name votes, since there is so many participants I feel this would a be the best solution.

OF-259 d

Gigafactory(Uber from Nemesis)


Silicon Valley
Glass Valley

Gateway b

System names:




Note only participating members may submit names.

Pls add me to the list :slight_smile:

I cannot contribute a lot at the moment, but I’ll plan also a base on Ementior next 2 weeks.
