Game


The Game section is everything you need to know about the universe of Phoenix.


As your Nexus account is linked to the game data stored offline, anything you know in-game will be flagged on Nexus. This means that you will be able to see star systems, maps, item data and much more as you discover it in game.


At the start of the game you will only have access to public knowledge data. This though does include quite a lot of information, including maps for common knowledge celestial bodies and systems.


Clicking on the system will take you to the system map.


Hovering over the link between the systems will reveal the jump distance between the systems.


Systems that are paler than the rest are systems that are in adjacent systems but can be reached from this system.



System maps show the moons haloed around their primary.


As you discover asteroid and other hidden phenomena, they will be displayed on the map.


The map also indicates public access markets.



Selecting a world from the system map will display the planetary map. This is the latest data for the map.




Items  [Recruit]

One issue that has proved frustrating in the past is updating items as part of the development of the game. With Nexus, any items that have required updating along with new items are now automatically uploaded. This list will also include all restricted items that you know about in-game.



Selecting an item allows you to look at its stats and even links to the various items that are required for its construction.






Markets  [Recruit]

This allows you to look at the latest markets throughout the Peripheries providing that the owner has made them public. Note though that these might be in regions of space that are hostile to the faction you have joined even if the market is for a neutral faction.



Specific details for the base are also included. It is always best to buy and sell at the same market or at least from markets on the same planet. This allows you to maximise your profits by avoiding an empty cargo hold during trips. If the starbase has a hiport you can trade with it while in orbit. You do not need to land and in many cases landing can result in boarding actions.


Below is just one type of view of the available markets. You can also view the markets by items in order to compare prices.





Ship Editor  [Recruit]

One of the big parts of the game is the design of new ships. Determining how useful the ship will be can be determined through the use of this editor. Selecting hulls, armour and adding items from your known list will be reflected on the stats.


This is not just for design. Once you have have completed your design, you can grant others access to it. These templates can be used in-game for refitting your ships providing that the hulls and armour are the same you can issue the order to refit to template. This will avoid the hassle of individual orders for uninstalling unwanted items and installing new ones.

*** Wimbles No More? ***

Kang’s least favourite puny furball race, the Wimbles, appear to have been consumed by the Falconian republic, as the winged meatsacks announced in the following press release:

“The Wimbles of Wimbledon, long friends of the Falconian Republic, have given their assent for the FCN protection of their home system to move from a temporary to protracted basis.

Previously Republic stewardship of the system was on an interim basis, extending our guarding wing to its people after the Wimble Nation collapsed. Now after years of close work and cooperation with the citizens of Khoros Major, they have formally placed their full trust in the Senate and People of Falconia supporting the FCN system claim. This marks the transition of Wimbledon from an Interim Protectorate to a Protectorate Province and will clear the way for additional republican investment and development in co-operation with the local government. In celebration of this day the Senate has voted the Princeps the honour title of "Protector of the Wimbles".”

Kang applauds the expansion of empires, and Kang hopes the Wimbles meet the fate of all subjugated races.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Kang has no message for you this week, you have all disappointed Kang immensely, and you shall suffer Kang’s displeasure.


*** Starbase Seized ***

Puny Human Empire sources are reporting the capture of a major Felini Starbase in the Starling system by Imperial ground forces in retaliation for their recent altercation with Empire shipping, as the humans continue their systematic programme of confiscating all alien-held assets inside the borders of human space.

Kang is unaware how much of a fight was put up by the Felini, nor indeed the extent of the conflict. It does however appear to have been short and sharp.

Kang hopes many Felini prisoners were taken.

How can it be the end of the week already? Kang simply does not know where the hours go. So many victims, so little time.

Prepare for deadly news injection.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Pitiful meatsacks of the Peripheries, commence your rejoicement celebrations and sacrifices, your beloved Editor Overlord Kang has returned to you.

Kang is aware that he has experienced some… missing time… Kang can neither confirm nor deny that this might or might not have something to do with the brainchip placed inside his skull when he was kidnapped from the Golden Kang awards by some dubious black-ops organisation that KANG ADMIRES GREATLY!

… If anybody has any idea of what Kang has been doing, or where he has been in recent months, please let Kang know.

It will obviously take Overlord Kang some time to get back up to speed on all the news and happenings in the Peripheries. Kang understands peace has broken out? How unseemly.

Here is news!
