Has anyone visited Geritior in Chart 4 ?.....I only ask because it does not seem to have any stations . a tech level or a Government.

It does however have a white hot Sothis (if you have Sothis installed) and assuming you try to land in that Sothis Hundreds of Cobra Mk III's..

This is just curiosity on my part :)

Sounds like a system gone nova.

The crafty little Asp on leaving Onesed says "I hear there are good prices at Geritior " Creates a Wormhole, so you follow it through and then you are in a world of hurt... I like it :)

I've not come across any systems gone nova, except after a certain mission I was involved with.

It's good to revisit one's nova system - but don't linger!

Oh you guys.. That's just cruel. You could at least say "Save your game before going"

I followed a Cobra Mk I into my nova system (Quisbe) last night - it was glowing bright red by the time I arrived. I jumped out to see if it would follow me, which it didn't, but Quisbe is close to several other systems so it probably jumped out, as it would've had the fuel - if it survived long enough, that is.

You'd think NPCs would know better - it's plain enough on F7.

I've jumped into a nova system accidentally at least once, just taking the quickest route without checking what was there - and in an earlier version (1.7, I think) it was possible to be given cargo contracts to nova systems! No way whatever to deliver them, of course. See this thread - http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=17128

Aha. I wouldn't have found that on my own. Thanks.

But . . no thanks. This is a Trump-themed OXP! I find it distressing enough that that quasi-fascist, lying misogynistic narcissist exists in real life - I am not letting him into my fantasy world as well!

Couldn't agree more.
Have his head shaved for a birth mark. Tell the Christers, tell the Mohameders and for Gods sake, tell the atheisters.

Don't you think this is getting a bit Outworld for OO discussion

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Funny how the world changes and how those changes give new meanings to old things. Meanings that were never there. Granted, the old and deprecated SothisTC was parodically Trump-themed as there are many others real life parodies or gags most notably in YAH!. Now that the world (US in the forefront currently) has gone a tad mad, this old OXP suddenly has a new hidden meaning that makes some people shun it. Not because it's deprecated or not because it's a parody of a once business magnate/reality tv star, but because that certain comical individual has proven to be a bit megalomaniac.

Gotta love this, I have finally been able to create something that has an effect on people 8) .
