Hi all,

SurvivorX here.

I was just browsing the internet around for space exploration/ mining games and I stumbled across this. I'm not very sure if I can dive deep into this but I decided to give it a try.
I was doing the Space Exploration Academy missions rather smoothly (I assume that's the tutorial?) until the part where I had to do an inter-stellar mission and deploy an orbital station or a mining facility. Long story short, I went to that distant star, realised most of the planets are already colonised by another player, and I can't find an empty spot to deploy my things to complete the tutorial mission. Then I basically hopped around different planets in that system until I ran out of fuel.

Is this supposed to happen? Or did I mess up in a huge way? I was under the impression that the tutorial will be held in a controlled environment where I can definitely deploy my mining facilities in a reserved spot SOMEplace. Anyway I couldn't find a way out of it (other than trying out the distress signal thing) so I restarted my tutorial. Before I embark on this journey again, some tips to prevent me from getting into the same situation will be greatly appreciated  1

Some general questions I have for this game:
  • Will my AP keep increasing forever without a cap?
  • Does this game reset periodically?
  • Should I find a guild / corporation (whatever is the term here) as soon as I can?
  • Is there some place where I can store my unused modules instead of constantly selling and rebuying them when my ship runs out of slots and cargo space?

Thanks alot!

Is that the part where you need to go to Sigma Draconis or something?
Been a few years since I went to the academy ;)

Let me clear up the orbit(s) there for you, probably tonnes of inactive captains.

Once you completed the academy, you might wanna join a corp. There are a few active ones that would love to have you on board, including our lot at SPQNR.

I don't think so. They recommended me to go where my quest people needed to go. In this case Tau Ceti.

without VIP you can amass a growth of only 100 AP
With VIP you amass 200
You can always purchase more than that

In my 5 years of play there has been no reset

A corporation is always helpful  
EoS is always looking for citizens

as far as storing modules (other than in the ship cargo bays) buy a station and deploy any unused mods for later use there (be dure to defend the station)

And ALL of that is awesome sound advice.  EOS is a great crew, one of my sons is EOS.  I personally am part of HALO.

Again, enjoy!
