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?

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.

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.

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.

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.
