Basically this update is gonna wipe out all the dead weight stations (stations belonging to inactive captains) very quickly. Especially those in faraway uninhabited systems.

* Explorers are able to stabilize a star using the new module "Solar Hydrogen Infuser" from a ship. Closer to the star is more effective.

How can you see the stabilize effect of Solar Hydrogen Infuser ??

Can the Infuser be placed on ships / stations / surface and still work ??

Today info on system screen "Star mass is stable. [-34.3]"
Wish "Star mass is stable. [-34.3], Stabilize effect. [1.0]"

This info would also be nice to have on station remote connection screen.

http://wiki.astro-galaxy.com/index.php?title=Star_stability

The Solar Hydrogen Infuser module can be used to stabilize the star. Higher mark or multiple modules may need to be used to keep the star stable indefinitely. This module only works from ships.

If you see it gathering energy at the end of the day, then it means it's working. If you can match or exceed the star degradation, you should see the stability go up each day. For best efficiency, park the ship at the first planet in the solar system

Why don't the Orbital Solar Collector place the produced energy directly to the cargo bay ??

I can't see why I have to go to each of my ships / Stations and unload the fuel, but if the cargo bay it's full, then is the fuel stored in the module..

This also apply for the Crematorium and Solar Hydrogen Infuser..

Just a thought, but as Solar Infusers COST (or will cost) 20QP (or, $20,000,000), setting their "value" as $375,000 seems a bit of a cheat.

I could be missing it, but ... the "new ship optimization "Solar Powered"" ... this doesn't seem to be available from the Optimization list at the SOL Shipyard. Are there pre-requisites, or is there another location ... or ... ? Thanks in advance -

It's only available by buying the Experimental Titan (for 1500QP) from the Pledge/Donate/Completed page...

I am not yet impressed by that particular optimization.

I wasn't at 750 QP old syle, much less at 1500 new style...
One of the worst RoI rates in the entire game.

Hello SirEmi - when I first read the 'indefinitely' portion of your statement above, I'd assumed that it might be possible to keep a star from going critical - *ever* - with some certain base number of Infusers. However, data shows that the rate of decay *speeds up* each day ... so, adding more and more (or higher mark) Infusers only acts as a temporary stop-gap: they do nothing to influence downward that basic *rate* of decay, which continues to accelerate. I now take this to mean that entropy will always win, and every non-local star will always, eventually, go critical, despite our best efforts ... unless additional infusers are regularly added (and added, and added ... etc.). Can you confirm (or correct me) on this, please? Thank you -

There's a maximum decay the star can have / day, (-50). From the calculations, about 16 mark I hydrogen infusers should keep a star running indefinitely...

Is there also a "minimum" decay? I've had 5 infusers on a binary since day 3 and increased it to 10 on day 4 and the decay has been a CONSTANT -0.6...
