Starflight Part 2

Now that we've got some armor, shields and decent engines, and a fully-trained crew, it's time to set out in search of a way to save Arth!

OR

Death by stupidity.  (And again by a game bug)

Places of note
  • 68, 66 Planet 1- Ruin at 12Nx32E with Shimmering Orb, random ruin with Pythagoras Constellation Coordinates and Endurium.   (See Important Notice Below)
  • 86, 80 Planet 1 - Colonizable35000 Mu
  • 91, 86 Planet 4 - Colonizable! 35000 Mu
  • 104, 71 Planet 1 - Colonizable35000 Mu
  • 118,146, Planet 4 - Ruin at 16Sx20W w/ Intelligence Communication, Dodecahedron. Colonizable! 40000 Mu
  • 123, 101, Planet 2 - 17Nx162E - Old empire message
  • 145,107, Planet 4 - Heaven.  Lots of minable materials, as well as ruins and EnduriumColonizable!  50000 Mu
  • 175, 94 - Derelict ship
  • 175, 94 Planet 1 - Ruin at 22Nx97W (with Smelenuf's message).  Colonizable!  35000 Mu
  • 216,87 - Pythagoras Constellation
  • 238,189 Planet 3 - Black Egg at 52Nx16E
NOTICE!: Due to a bug, the minerals on this planet have no name and display a very high value.  However, you must not, under any circumstances, pick them up and take them back to your ship; this will freeze the game and render your save file unusable!  Gathering bio-data, life forms and Endurium is OK, but do not get any minerals here!

Some useful Fluxes
  • 98, 79 - 69, 66
  • 104, 82 - 118, 107
  • 123, 127 - 128, 143
  • 126, 87 - 173, 88
  • 128, 105 - 146, 112
  • 148, 166 - 170, 193
Some useful Artifacts
  • Shimmering Orb - A cloaking device!  Makes it much more difficult for enemy missiles to target you.  Very handy.
  • Dodecahedron - A beacon.  Makes encounters much more frequent.  Handy when you want to parley with some races (Veloxi, Elowan and Spemin in particular), but you may want to ditch it when you head into Uhlek/Gazurtoid territory
Tips
  • Heaven is a fantastic place to mine resources; it's easy to get to, safe to explore, minerals and ruins are plentiful in its high-elevation areas and you can easily make upwards of 50,000 Mu per trip with 16 cargo pods.  As soon as you can make the journey and answer the Mechans' questions, do it!
A very lucrative Heaven run netted me almost 70,000 Mu (not counting Endurium I found)
