Welcome aboard, Commander! Try sending that PM again - it should be cool now.

On the globe that gave us birth
Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies
And the cool, green hills of Earth

I managed to complete this mission. I think that I should at least get paid for doing the job!!!!!!!
I’m looking forward to the next version of “the collector”.

Found it finally... and completed the mission. the end is a bit disappointing, thou. He could at least give a small chat and some credits or so.

Have give up with this after trying for several weeks on and off, I cannot get a fast enough time even using extra fuel tanks to skip docking at Bioris and using torus and injection to the docking buoy and then manual docking.

Can anyone PM me the answer or at least post the time needed so I can see if I am even within 10 hours of the target.

At most 5 minutes more than the minimum transit time by the fastest route as per the Oolite Interative map

Ok thanks, I just can't do that. I don't know a faster method than the one I am using and even with a clear run to the station and manual docking I am not going to beat that time. So either I am missing something or you just have to keep trying until you get lucky....

Hi Dysk,

This is the most tricky part of this mission pack, but there is a solution. Yes, you can not arrive in time using raw force, but you must use your mind. Without giving too much spoiler I only can tell that the shortest way is not always the fastest in Oolite.

Please try again and write either if you give up or arrived in time.

After several days of doing nothing but trying to find the Collectors little hidey hole ... I reckon about 40 re-launches from getting the hint about it being down among the Atiras I've solved the problem. Uninstalled the OXP.

How would a Ooniverse pilot actually get hold of this information? It seems impossible to visit so many stations that eventually someone in the docking sequence would ever mention more than "the devil's triangle" with a location "south in the galaxy"...

The wiki and also that URL is all 'outside the game'. I was wondering how the collector should be found with the hints given inside the game.
After all every now and then, when docking there is a screen telling me the same story over and over, and regardless whether I go straight for the question or I buy the escape pod I never get any additional clue.

Is it really the case that this mission is not solvable without information in the wiki or else?
