On this way I would like to announce the participation in the Faction Expansion Contest on the one hand and on the other hand I would like to call interested players for participation.
I appreciate the effort the “Devoids” put in their participation offer.
Thus I am saying I am planning since a long time to settle in the outer rim of the known universe, a CX would be of great need. I have used the contest announcement to do some more research in how to develop a specific regin. If you are in for a challenge here it is:
I considered XS-804 as well but IC-162 is a bit more centered. Also IC-162 has a planet that need less special ressources.
LG-418b is a very fertile planet. And the only fertile in parsecs. Obviously as I have named the planet long ago it is my plan to colonize that very planet. “Kinza” is a berberian word meaning something like (valuable) treasure. Its unfortunately 4 jumps away from the focus system, but mainly for having the second focused planet in range.
EZ-476b is the second and last (in that list) T1 planet. Rich of ressources. Combined with the food from LG-418b it should be possible, but still hard to start a running region.
XS-538c provides one of the most basic ressources Limestone. I am sure it should be settled and would prosper.
LG-913e similiar to XS-538c its a planet that provides needed and commonly used ressources “Hydrogen” and “Helium”.
IC-162a a compromise planet, its in the focus system and it has some needfull ressources within.
Faction of the Outcast (FOO). We would like to establish our currency: Outcast dirty cash (ODC)
Only outcasts, currently just me @Aufricer and my Coorperation (Aufricers Kramladen A1) . If you check you will find its headquarter on LG-418b since a long time.
I cant promiss other players anything but I will sooner or later settle LG-418b. I have the electronics for the HQ already scrounged up. if you are interessted contact me.
Edit as of 09.10.2021
- @AceXephon will try to join the challenge
It is an interessting challenge to try to establish an CX + faction that far away. The region is hard to settle. Only 1 fertile planet, only 4 or 5 T1 planets, 2 of them without any reasonable ressources.
After doing a quick (not so) check I would say: A lot of SEA (Poly-Sulfite Sealant) will be needed and the ressources to produce it are missing as well. I also could not found Gold (AUO) or Halite Crystals (HAL) any close. Trading those and other ressources in would be necessary.
Most of the other ressources are around (less then 7 jumps) on planets/Systems (including) the following
Adding a CX in that region would be also a good step for expanding the universe (sector LA?) or adding a new ressource needed and only available in the region.
