Through this you have the ability to add orders for any and all of your positions. First select the position you wish to add a turn for. It will then be listed (in this case a turn has been added for New Starbase (5680).

This screen allows you to sequence turns, allowing one to be run before another. This is useful if you are moving freight � you would not want one ship moving off before the delivering ship had transferred its cargo. If you are still working on the turn but have completed orders for other positions you can flag Don�t Send when you wish to submit all the others.

You might also want to sequence your turn to be run after a position that is not listed in this set of turns. This could be useful for fleet actions where you are co-ordinating your positions with those run by other players.

Once it is shown here you need only click on the base and it will take you to the order editor below.

Entering Orders

Once you have selected a position, entering orders is straight forward. Simply selecting orders from the left column displays them in the centre where you can submit parameters for them. The dropdowns give you options from known data though you always have the option to issue specific numbers. You might wish to do this based on what you expect to occur during the turn.

Once you have completed the order, the issue button queues it with the previous orders on the right. You can expand previous orders to double check parameters as shown in the Build Complex and Exploit Resource orders in the example below.

You can even edit previous orders without having to resubmit all the ones following it. Finally, if you realise that you wish to change which order comes before or after which, you can use the up and down arrows on the issued orders.


Macros are designed to make life a lot easier. We appreciate that freighters tend to run circular routes, we also know that a battle commander wants all the ships in the fleet to submit the same orders, even when run by different people.

For this reason we have created macros. These allow you to create a set of orders just as though you were creating them for a position.

A freight macro might be to move between a few outposts on a long circuitous route, picking up ores and dropping off at a base. You might call it the �Capellan Ore Freight 1�

Then all you need to is select the ships you wish to run these orders and select the macro �Capellan Ore Freight 1� and it will then add all the specific orders that were listed in the macro to the position.

Like turns, we have allowed macros to be shared by players. A fleet commander could therefore create a patrol macro and inform the players in the fleet to run the macro for all their ships in the fleet. There has also been a security filter added to this though, thereby preventing just any person in the group having access to the macros - who knows what spies might be lurking?

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…

*** Message From The Editor ***

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

*** 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!

*** 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
