Should D object, I'll happily change it.
What it Does:
Turns the Leesti - Diso milk run into a much safer route for the beginning player.
Leesti and/or Diso are within jump range of the following planets:
- Riedquat - Anarchy
- Uszaa - Anarchy
- Reorte - Dictatorship
- Orerve - Feudal
- Oresque - Multi Government
Furthermore, being so close together, Leesti - Diso can make good use of fuel injectors (once purchased) in a way that Isinor to Ensoreus for example would struggle.
This oxp neuters the piracy influence of the dangerous systems listed above by altering their government types (and occasionally their economies to prevent further lucrative safe routes emerging).
It's not uncommon for the player to be attacked by large groups of pirates even in the early game (when the player ship is especially vulnerable).
Having a safe space to learn the ropes, within a single jump of Lave, is what this oxp attempts to provide.
The similarly nearby but potentially more lucrative routes of Zaonce/Tionisle - Isinor and Isinor - Ensoreous should be largely unaffected.
For the future:
It may be a little too easy now and so some fine tuning may be needed in future.
No threat is not necessarily an improvement over too much threat but for an early release it makes sense to err on that side of the equation.
The usual applies:
- Feedback welcomed
- If you don't like it, don't install it - your game, your business
OXZ available from the manager shortly.
