    FIRST: the Establishment of a Communication Outpost upon it, and to Link It into Our Ever growing Faster then Light Communication Network.
    SECOND: The Extraction of Any and All Monopole Ore Upon Planet 573412c. While We do not Expect to find any Significant Deposits of it upon Planet 573412c, a cursitory Gravitational Servey of Planet 573412c has reveled several Anomalies(atachment A) that must be investigated, and if they do prove to have a small amount of Monopole Ore, Extracted and added to our Reserve.
    We do not for see any Problems with any of the Goals, as outside Our own Technological needs, the uses of Monopole ore is few.

    I am very sorry, but I don't believe I will have time to really participate as of today, seeing as I just recieved a letter from my college level US History teacher for this coming year that I will have a lot more work to do by the 24th when school starts for me. Really, I am very sorry. This looked like a very promising NES that I had big plans for. Again, I am extremely sorry.

    I understand.


    Also, to clarify, building effects don't go into effect until the turn after their built. So if you, for example build a barrack level 1 this turn, you'll still be paying prices for this turn as if you didn't have barracks.

    OOC: a question. Does money you spend on building count towards a higher level building? EX: Barracks is 2 ECOs – Does that count towards the 3 ECOs you need for barracks level 1?

    No, the counter restarts at every new level so to get to level 1 costs 2 points, to get to level 2 takes 3, to get to level 3 takes 6, etc.

    Barracks
    -none: Can train 1000 infantry for 1 eco point (0/2)
    -Level 1: Can train 1500 infantry or 500 Anti-Tank Infantry for 1 eco point
    -Level 2: Can train 1500 infantry, 500 Anti-Tank Infantry, or 500 Anti-Air Infantry for 1 eco point (0/6)
    -Level 3: Can train 2000 infantry, 750 Anti-Tank Infantry, or 750 Anti-Air Infantry for 1 eco point (0/8)
    -Level 4: Can train 2500 infantry, 750 Anti-Tank Infantry, or 750 Anti-Air Infantry for 1 eco point (0/15)
    -Level 5: Can train 3000 infantry, 1000 Anti-Tank Infantry, or 1000 Anti-Air Infantry for 1 eco point


    Is this a typo? - or does not having a barracks cost 2 ECOs - it is the same for every building

    UU: Bear - The Bear is a multi-mission strategic bomber designed for operations ranging from subsonic speeds and low altitudes to speeds over Mach 2 at high altitudes. The two weapons bays can accommodate different mission-specific loads, including strategic cruise missiles, short-range guided missiles, bombs, and mines. Its basic armament of short-range guided missiles and strategic cruise missiles enables it to deliver strikes to targets with preassigned coordinates. The aircraft is equipped with high-precision conventional weapons and it may also be used against mobile or tactical targets.
    Motto: You cannot fly like an eagle with the wings of a wren
    Description: In the collapse that followed the economic depression Gattaca emerged as the heir to NASA. The company made every effort possible to acquire the operations of other former national space operations, and led the way for space travel. While space is the primary focus of Gattaca, aerospace design remains one of the priorities, and its status as one of the biggest comapnies in the world carries with it a degree of economic knowledge.

    From the movie? Of course. Just as much as starting as Rome in a fresh start is a rip off of history ;)

    Map updated with new corporations. I will start the update when I get up on Thursday. It would be wise to get in orders before then.

    I've received only 3 out of 7 orders, so I won't be updating. I'm not going to NPC 9 (4 players and 5 NPCs) companies just for three people. And since because of work, I won't have time again to update after today until next Thursday, I'll most likely just kill this as I doubt what little interest there is will survive another updateless week.
