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.

Somewhere someplace there is less of something because someone is blasting away with some of this and that.

Signed, Someone.

… never let it be said that Kang does not have the best news informants…

*** Message From The Editor ***

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.

It is a bright New Year and Kang wishes you all an increase in your levels of brutal slaughter and mayhem.

Kang’s new year resolution was to eat more healthily.

This is proving to be slightly problematic as it turns out healthier Wimbles tend to be faster Wimbles.

Welcome Readers! The GTT is a fascinating place to work and has a lot of interesting stories to tell. It has always seemed a shame that few outside GTT HQ get to know about them and this magazine is meant to correct that situation. Our intent is to create greater understanding about the GTT and its position as the premier Imperial chartered megacorporation. We will tell those stories accurately and factually, as far as security permits, and we hope that you enjoy them all. And now on with the news. $$

The puny human holiday of Christmas is rapidly approaching, which means Kang is infested once again with wretched viral lifeforms.

There will now be more than the usual amount of bile in the news.

Kang does however request that any meatsacks with any particularly festive news stories should contact him for inclusion in the Christmas SSS.

And by ‘inclusion’ Kang really means, something involving napalm.

Kang is pleased to report for once that Kang was wrong when describing a ceasefire between the Human Empire and the Alien Alliance, it would seem the idea was briefly mooted, and then discarded for the pathetic snivelling surrender monkey trash it was. And what Kang thought was a cessation of hostilities, was hopefully just a pause in the brutal slaughter.

Mmmm. Brutal slaughter.

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…
