    T2 fell into line much sooner than anticipated for me. Now onto getting T3 in order.


    Also done a round of mine upgrades since last post, and relocated my sole slot 8 to 15 to fully focus on Deut production.


    Global Lifeforms Tech Bonuses:

    • Research Speed: 27.631% (My endgame tree is just relying on the slot 17 research tech, so I've been slowly dropping the slot 11 research time tech from my tree)
    • Metal Production: 105.554%
    • Crystal Production: 86.913%
    • Deuterium Production: 119.410%
    • Collector Class Boost: 25.775%

    Effective Planet Bonuses:

    • Lifeforms Research Speed Reduction: ⌀ -68.881%
    • Metal Production: ⌀ 149.554%
    • Crystal Production: ⌀ 116.913%
    • Deuterium Production: ⌀ 151.910%

    Just over 3.6b MSU per day now. Next mine upgrades are M47 > C39 > D45.

    Slot 18 done on all planets as of last week. Have also relocated some planets since the last post, boosting my deut production up.


    At the moment, I have my ideal T1 tree on all 16 planets, ideal T2 tree on 6 planets, and ideal T3 tree on 3 planets. Artifacts grind goes slow, so I don't expect to have T2/T3 done for a few more months.


    Current Lifeforms Bonuses:

    • Research Speed: -33.134% (Not been prioritizing this much as of late)
    • Metal Production: 95.718%
    • Crystal Production: 74.397%

    So just over 3.2b MSU per day now. Still a lot of room to build the techs up, but so far this is nearly an 80% gain vs my pre-lifeforms production.


    At current pace alongside a few mine upgrades, expecting I'll be at 4b MSU/day before the end of the year. I'll post my next update once I've Got t2 fully sorted out.

    We're a few weeks in now and the majority of boosters I had active have since ended. Just 2-3 planets with a few boosters up.


    Sadly, finding artifacts hasn't been going well for me. T1 is done on all planets, but T2 and 3 are going to take a while at this rate.


    5/16 Planets have Slot 18 unlocked atm, and another will in the next day or so. All remaining have Slot 17 unlocked. Spent more than I should have on the other Lifeforms buildings, and just didn't have enough res on hand to immediately push them all to 18 right away. Per my calcs, another ~40b msu should get the rest of my planets up, so should have that done by end of January.


    Current Lifeforms Technology Boost:

    • Research Time Reduction: 32.23%
    • Metal Boost: 78.9%
    • Crystal Boost: 54.34%
    • Deuterium Boost: 88.29%

    Over the next few months, I expect further Tech levels to take the Metal, Crystal, and Deut boosts up another 90%+

    So just under 3b MSU per day now.

    only one universe per community gets the 10x eco perk i think

    RIP, well Shinesun to dream^


    Your recommendation above looks good. I'd be sad to see Gaspra go as the settings are really good for Expo spam. But I don't think many have really taken advantage of it.

    Let's dream together and choose which universes you'd like to see targeted

    We will take your opinion into account when the time comes for mergers

    There must be a 1x Fleet Speed Option with High Economy for those wanting that playstyle.


    For Target Unis:


    1. Volans - 1x Fleet Speed / 8x Economy - Miner Server

    2. Gaspra - 6x Peaceful & Defensive, 1x Attack Fleet Speed / 8x Eco - Very good for Discoverer/Miner playstyle.

    3. Himalia - 8x Peaceful & Defense, 6x Attack Fleet Speed / 10x Eco - Fast Paced Fleeter Uni

    4. Yildun - 6x Peaceful, 2x Defense & Attack Fleet Speed / 8x Eco - Balanced option.


    For Volans/Gaspra, prob wouldn't hurt to bump their eco up to 10x aswell.

    Someone pop the hood and show us what their production is now that we have life forms :)

    Going to be a few months before most of us have the Lifeforms tech tree sorted out, which will provide the bulk of the lifeforms boost. Most of the boost we all have right now is from the Rock'tal buildings, which are nice, but a fraction of what the techs will give us.


    But for right now, here's with a few mine upgrades since my last post here, and boosters up on all planets:

    For me, I am focusing on getting the Tech Tree fully unlocked ASAP, and using the random/reset mechanics to work on the techs I can until I get enough artifacts to replace the incorrect techs I got along the way. I already have slot 18 unlocked on 2 planets, and should have the remaining 14 planets fully unlocked over the next week or so.

    On September 12th Volans (US-174) had maintenance to transfer to different server hardware.


    Since that change, server performance seems to be getting worse and worse each day. Huge delays trying to load pages or do fleet actions. Even trying to transport my res I'm encountering pages taking a minute+ to load, or freezing until I refresh the page.


    Issues persist on both of my internet connections, and others in my alliance are also experiencing these issues.


    Would appreciate this getting looked into. Game is not really enjoyable to play in this state.

    With how things have been going, am doubting we're going to see lifeforms anytime soon on Volans. Questionable if it will happen this year at this rate.


    So decided to get Crystal 38's done, M46 will be next over the next few months. Still wanting to keep at least 100b msu in reserve for Lifeforms, so will slowly roll out those M46 upgrades.

    Flight time/consumption ignore empty and inactive systems ON. <<<<<<< Do I need to do something to make it happen, does the server do it automatically?

    It is automatic. Nothing you need to do on your side.

    You're playing on a 1x Fleet Speed uni. All fleet actions are going to be drastically slower than unis with higher fleet speeds.


    If you want fast peaceful speeds for Expo spam, then try US. Gaspra.


    If you want to stay on Halley and spam expos, then make sure to do SC or PF expos. Do in-system expos. Split it up between planets/moons in different systems to prevent depletion.

    D43's on my Slot 14 and my newest colony which had been relocated to slot 15 and got lucky with a -127c temp right off the bat.

    I know the next merge is hopefully still a ways off.


    I would just ask that moving forward that the people in charge make sure that we have a 1x Fleet speed option in any future .US merges.

    I know I said above I was going to hold off on mines til lifeforms, but there's still a lot of unknown as to when it will actually drop. V10 will start rolling out to some unis soon, but we're not in the first batch of unis to get it, and even when it's here, lifeforms will not arrive immediately alongside it.


    So Duet 43 has been done on all of my slot 15s. I'll be maintaining the resources to insta up to T3 Slot 16 Rock'tal on all planets and get some T1 techs up right away, but any res beyond that is going to be heading into mines for the time being.

    On Volans, in the past few days, 3 people were banned for violating these new graveyard rules.


    • Pinot - Joined on the 22nd with 980m points. - Rank 7
    • YaFeelMe - Joined on the 16th with 450m points and enough res to get up to ~670m points. - Ended at rank 12
    • Bizzle - Joined on the 21st with 479m points. - Rank 15

    For YaFeelMe and Bizzle, just makes no sense to me why their accounts shouldn't have been able to remain on Volans.


    Not every community is as large as .DE, .EN, .FR, etc. These rules as is are just going to contribute to further loss of players in this community, and potentially push them away from the product in general.


    And if you look at the attached picture, you can see that those now-banned accounts did not really change the landscape of the uni. They're all a fraction the size of the top accounts.


    It seems the point here is to prevent really large accounts from coming in and ruining the balance of a uni. And if that really is such a big issue to Gameforge all of a sudden, then where is their response to the metal pack spam that is destroying almost every new universe?
