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.

It seems like only yesterday that Kang was dropping napalm on a group of refugees fleeing from the latest ‘accidental’ orbital bombardment of a Starbase in Yank. You’d be surprised how easy it is to get away with that sort of thing when there are warships in orbit shooting things up. Nobody ever notices the Flagritz in the hover car with the napalm.

Which leads Kang to reflect that it has been such a long time since the last orbital bombardment of a Starbase.

But not so long since Kang last poured napalm onto refugees.

Which just goes to show you can never have too much of a good thing.

A good thing like more old news!

Puny meatsacks, you make Kang sad.

Here is more old news.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Your beloved editor-in-chief Overlord Kang asks you, puny meatsacks, what could possibly be better than old news?


Kang spoils you, he really does.

Kang is very good at spoiling meatsacks like you.

Spoiling you permanently.

*** Message From The Editor ***

Greetings, puny flesh-things of the Peripheries. Your beloved Overlord Kang trusts that your sacks of flesh are ripe and ready to burst and freeze in the merciless cold of interstellar vacuum.

Returning from an unexpected illness, Kang is forced to pause and reflect upon your mortality, and question why so many of you worthless meatsacks have still not leapt into a torpedo tube and had yourselves launched into an asteroid at point blank range. Or as Kang likes to call it ‘Dropping the kids off at the mine’.

Prepare your disgusting fleshy auditory sensors for what can only be described as out of date news! As Kang runs a series of catch-up editions of the galaxies favourite journal of bile and hatred.

Any complaints, and Kang politely invites you to step inside his patented ‘Complaints Tube’. Kang assures you. It is perfectly safe in there. Please ignore the stains.

The puny human meatsacks appear to have unleashed their vaunted Uber-GP once again, and have released the following terse statement to the press:

How do you fit a dead meatsack in a blender?

Your beloved Editor Overlord Kang has frequently complained that the SSS-HQ is located in the most dingy rain-soaked continent on Mobile Bay. Many are the interns Kang has to brutally slaughter to express his disappointment at the weather.

With this in mind, Kang has decided to trigger runaway global warming.

Please send more hydrocarbons to Mobile Bay that they might be set on fire.
