    Slavic Federation. Colonists: energy. Cargo: worker. Spacecraft: continental surveyor.

    This is my default set up for other sponsors. Not sure if this is optimal for an orbital game.

    Another sponsor lands West of Khrabrost. Feeling squeezed at the moment. Hopefully no one lands North of my capital! So far the three sponsors that have landed on Duh have avoided coastal area starts.

    My intention is to settle on the East coast in order to cover both oceans with seapower. Also heading due South to heed off KP since they were the first sponsor we've come into direct contact with.

    Holy cow, just spotted some KP territory edging closer to Khrabrost from Mandira in the South.

    Must counter.
