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.

War, huh, what is it good for?

Apart from Kang’s blood pressure obviously.

*** Message From The Editor ***

As reported last edition, Kang can now confirm that DEN Manticore has fallen to the dreaded Uber-GP of the Empire after hard fighting and much bloodshed on all sides.

Though obviously one side was fielding what Kang can best describe as ‘Naplian cannon fodder’, so they probably care somewhat less than the Dewiek do about their casualties, which include at least two senior political figures, along with many tens of thousands of Dewiek warriors and civilians.

The story is not yet done however, as fierce brutal conflict has continued to spread across the previously peaceful system of Solo…

***** Inter Galactic Even More Epic Length Than Last Time News *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Kang once again thanks Ellerian of the DEN were details regarding the Solo conflict.


***** Inter Galactic Turbo Sized Mega Edition News *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Kang is most pleased that you have chosen to celebrate the 500th edition of the SSS by engaging in a stellar war. Most pleased indeed.

Let bloodshed commence.


***** Inter Galactic News - 500th Edition! *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Deep in the depths of Kang’s obscure file system, there is a notification that this is the 500th edition of the SSS.

This number is almost certainly inaccurate as there have been times when the file has been saved on top of older editions by accident. But lacking more precise details, join Kang as we celebrate 500 editions of the Peripheries most inherently unreliable news agency, as we toast with burning Wimbles in the traditional Flagritz way.

Let the screaming commence!

***** Inter Galactic Flagritz News *****

*** Message From The Editor ***

Sharp eyed readers might notice a certain Flagritz bias in todays edition of the SSS. This is because only the FLZ and HEX have submitted news stories this week.

Kang doesn’t want to hear any whinging about it. If you want your affiliation to get more coverage in the news, then submit more news stories, either to Kang or to the Nexus.

Prepare for hard FLZ news injection, coming your way at MACH 6!

***** Inter Galactic News *****

*** Superior Message From The Editor ***

Kang would like to take a moment from your regularly scheduled dose of bile and hatred that is the news, to thank, yes, thank, those who submit news stories.

Truly, without Kang’s eager band of reporters, the Peripheries finest news outlet would be reduced to an endless series of insults and death threats.

So Kang thanks you for your submissions, lowly meatsacks, may you all die in plasma fire.

Three Flagritz walk into a bar.

Everybody is brutally subjugated.

Time for news.

What is more fun than nailing a Wimble to a wall?

Tearing it off again.


Not that it means much nowadays but we have moved from KJC Towers, though technically Phoenix moved five months ago
