Earth

It sounds like Earth is in a bad bad way. Maybe we should launch ourselves a coup once we've brought Space Reddit to heel.

Sign me up for command of a repair yard or ship if we have them, I want to write the next Death Traps.

The closest thing to a repair ship that will (hopefully, unless it all goes to poo poo really fast) be appearing for some time is the fleet support ships, they carry giant stashes of maintenance supplies which other ships can plunder them to repair themselves. I'll put you first in line for once we get mobile shipyards or tug-pulled repair bays involved.

So the voting remains close at:

Terra: 2
Mars: 14
IC: 11

Mars takes an early lead but the IC is close behind. Poor boring Terra lags badly in last place.

Remember: a vote for the IC is a vote for letting us use Culture naming schemes for our ships. A vote for Mars is probably a vote for the same boring naming schemes real militaries use.

Interstellar Corp sounds like the most exotic option although it's probably not going to win.

Sadly work won't allow me to play aurora so anyone feel free to showcase the missile design screen. For those familiar with the 5.6 version it got worse after 6.0. You now design engines for your missiles with power levels and fuel efficiency similar to how ship engines are made instead of just selecting Missile/Drone/Buoy.

Anyway, if you want Maximum Macross then IC is a safe bet.

IC standard battle drill on a Marissa Mayer class hollow box full of missiles guided missile cruiser:


However if you want maximum drivebys with Lasers and Plasma cannons and like a whoooole lot of explosions then Mars is the way to go.

Basically all Mars all the time:

Vote tally:

The count stands at:

Terra: 3
Mars: 22
IC: 17

Unless there is a last minute surge for IC it looks like we are going to be the stewards of Mars for the time being. Voting closes at around 1pm EST today.

Finally just a note to those requesting civilian administrators and scientists, there will be no civilian roles for Goons in this LP. The focus is on conflict and we wont be getting tied down with Aurora's economic system.

Technically most of the Corporate population lives on the Moons of Jupiter and Saturn so a nice medium ground between planet-bound and space-bound. United Terra with its dominion over the many colonies in the Asteroid belt and Trojans technically has the largest space-based population.

The Interstellar Corporation does not accept these claims of Mars being in the lead. They are obviously propaganda by Mars hicks stuck in their dust-junkie ways

Is there any place to have a non-military/naval dorfing? Do that for me if so. Otherwise give my name to a science vessel or something.

e: Seen the above in Saros' post now. I'm not sure if "avoiding the economic side" includes survey/science vessels but if so just give my name to a ship of the lightest class of ship we have.
