Departing AG - my tech startup requires too much attention.

My GCA pw's changed and with Raphael (as the remaining GCA Sponsor with longest standing), though I certainly wouldn't mind if the account ended up with Emperor Sargas, for the rare occasions when a trade needs to be made.  If GCA's to survive, someone will need to contact the Admins about making SPQNR_Publius GCA Leader, and at least one ship needs re-equipping with storage mods.

Best wishes and gratitude to:
Sir Emi, SPQNR, my fellow GCA Sponsors, and the AG Community
for this engrossing game :-D

Farewell!
Publius

well I must say the fact that I was able to minupulate you Guys into making me Corp leader is extremely important any ways now you can say Iíve pulled off the biggest heist in Astro galaxy history. Not only that but have your members check attack logs because Iíve made my way around sol


You proved that control of a major endeavor can't be given to someone:
1) without significant "skin in the game"
2) for whom assets or services purloined might matter more than reputational loss.
Thanks for that!  My more democratic principles needed adjustment.

That said, you've managed to po the top 3-corps.  Don't think the gain/loss margin will work out for you  19

Ok I took them but because the GCA was dead. Have Fun attacking me thogh Iím currently exploring the alien cluster. Also if the GCA wasnít dead I wouldnít of taken them, plus I was never paid for my duties. So what can I do you wouldnít of wanted them in the end. By the way I still have the nuke so donít try anything.  nono

Remind me?  Raphael, I, and most importantly Odlid (because he had the least to give, but kept up anyway) each provided around $100m in modules (I also provided ships and Optimizations).  Forgetting now, but think you may also have stolen $100m in mods from the Emperor?

You provided ~ $3-400m in service?   laugh

Check the cargo logs.  1


Good idea  1

All mods from all ships (except last Cargo bay on each) were transferred to "SS. Orbis (#560328)".  The last time someone mentioned that ship ID, it was registered to:
560328   CVN-61 SC Orbis   10761   [CAP] Capt. Clavin

Appears you might need to change your password, Mr. Clavin?   21

That is an interesting suggestion. I'm not a coder, so I don't know what would be involved in adding animation, but my fear is that it would slow down the server, due to the sheer number of objects that would need to be animated.

HTML5 or Javascript put the animation burden on the clientside.  Think it's more the programming burden ;-)

Urgent news someone robed the GCA today and booted me they were supposed to ba a Sponsoring but they took everything when I turned away to do some chores

What did they steal, and who was it?  As GCA members I see only Odlid (absent a long time), you (just readmitted by me), and Sargas.  Only leader can grant rank.  I can't even boot Odlid.  Please PM Support?  Was there any name on the kick notice, or is there maybe some auto-kick for absent Leaders?

Is [GCA] Capt. Clavin (who has been inactive for 644h 19m 1s) still the one in charge of GCA?


Odlid's Leader right now.  307h 56m 6s  21

I can boot Odlid (and re-admit him when he returns) if there's a Trade to do..

Free, but short-term only (time it takes to complete the exchange) - you rejoin your Corp by re-Applying afterward (PM your corp Leader first so this goes quickly).  Sol Corp rejoins Sol using widget at the top of the Corp > Top Corps tab after leaving GCA.

(ed) Exchanges must have a minimum value of $1m since they're subsidized by Raphael at 1-QP/exchange (paid to the GCA Leader).

There's also some limitations on the purchase of military equipment (max value scales with your Pow)

I've successfully completed the SEA training. One question though... is it possible to transfer modules from one of my ships to the other? I'd like to take some modules from the MkIII and send them to the MkIV before I have the prior stripped and sold for parts.

Regards,
Ian

Easiest way is empty the mod of any cargo or personnel, stow in cargo, and transfer using the cargo tab (personnel transfer using the modules > installed tab).  

To get the last storage mod off the ship, you'd need to have both ships at a Station you own, deploy the mod to the Station, and Scoop it to the new ship.  Problem then is getting the stripped ship back to Earth (you can't deploy Stations at earth).  You'd need a Hangar for that.  But I don't think it's worth the hassle for the last low level mod, even when you're starting out.  Earth will buy from you at a loss vs purchase price (think you get 75% ?).

Bye. Iím moving on, and so is PT. Sadly, This game is dead. I had my fun, and now itís over. I used to love this game, but its so boring now. So Iíll come clean, if you havenít guessed already. Cpt. Jean Cesare was my broís account that he gave to me. Pokeboy098 was my first account, kicked from SPQNR for inactivity. Akorem Laan was my 4th account. Plasmastorm was my second. And finally, Nero Inanis was my 5th. Toothlessís accounts were all alts too, and anyone else who joined PT went inactive shortly after. Iím done. I had fun, and that is what games are for. Goodbye for now, maybe Iíll see you in another game, where I didnít mess up so badly. I might check back in, but if you really want to see me, Iím HA Wynd Cynara on the Kepler Galaxy in Astro Empires. I was taking care of my broís account, SolarNova, while he was away, and he is coming back, so you can maybe contact me through him as well. Remember the history and government of Pax Terra, some of it wasnít scripted and some was really really interesting.

Farewell, and Godspeed Captains,
The Pax Terra Corporation

Sorry to see you go!  Maybe find someone to park your id with and let them loot your assets?  Preferably a low to midlevel independent, but not a total beginner?

btw (for others' info) - getting "kicked from SPQNR for inactivity" needn't be permanent.  Just reapply - we already know you :-)

Someone better suited already welcomed you to AG :-)

SPQNR will welcome you if/when you'd like (it's a nepotism thing  laugh

...Buy the saddest part of this tale is that I can no longer proclaim that I'm an SEA dropout.

ah, but you are now eligible to join the Empire.  We would welcome you. 15

ah, but SPQNR will always be the first Corporation Odlid refused to join!  And, he's still welcome :-)

at your link Sir Emi mentioned max reduction was to 5% of crew remaining.  However, think I've seen stronger mods than that captured?  In your experience do they all in practice max out at 95% (iow, a skeleton crew always survives, regardless of EMJO)?  Thanks!
14  Caffe / Whatever / Re: GCA For Sale on: July 12, 2018, 01:08:07 PM
I have to agree, Pokeboy.
This is the third 'super-corporation' attempted.
For a good lesson in folly, read the posts up there ^ called "Child Board" and see some of the difficulties of attempting to unify the galaxy.  wallbash


"Galactic Council"?  Fascinating read - especially how roles have changed over a comparatively few years (Thanks)!

GCA is far more modest by intent, need served, and design - it (should) provide a safe (Earth based) place for trade among players of different corps.  No reason why even declared enemies couldn't trade (except mutual spite ;-)

am disheartened re GCA because lack of interest shows lack of new players with enough emotional engagement to stick around, and without new players everything equilibrates (coarse restatement of 2nd Law of Thermodynamics ;-)  Fortunately that takes a long time - lots still to learn and do.
15  Caffe / Whatever / Re: GCA For Sale on: July 11, 2018, 08:55:49 PM
I've parked Odlid in the GCA corporation because it was useful to help Cliff get trades done.  I can still do that if desired or free up my 'member slot' for alts from sponsor corps. 

Don't leave unless GCA's a nuisance :-)

Member licenses are dirt cheap at this level.
