Help section / Re: Mission too hard?

Just an update - I made it with using EMP and running through the pirate territories with the Hammer as ship. Maybe just a bad random setup/generation of the map, that I have to fly always through that very hard part of space to get my quests done.

Help section / Mission too hard?
« on: May 01, 2015, 01:41:11 am »
Hi all,

so I got to proof my dedication to 4 members to join the faction "Freedom". Quest 1-3 were not hard to complete, but quest 4 tasks me to buy weapons from some pirate station. Since there was not much in the space around, that could kill my ship and most enemies died in an instant, I though "Well, let's have a look into the pirate system and get to that station". When I warped in, I got shot in an instant by the two towers at the warp gate and a big pirate ship.
Ok, time for "Survival of the fittest". I mined until I was able to get a Hammer for 70k and the best equipment I could buy, as well as all 4 slots filled with armor and shield enhancing mods, 2x EMP and the best weapons etc. I could get.
Also being lvl 49, I tried it again, warped in, EMPed, flew a tad away so I was out of the tower range, agroed 2 ships, killed them and also blew up 3-4 more of them, which were really hard hitting and then I was blown up again...
I don't know what to enhance since there is not any better gear I can buy. I also thought about building some very fast ship and just fly through them, but I doubt this will work since they hit so hard.

I mean it's a somewhat extreme steep increase in difficulty - there is really nothing in the "normal" systems, that is the slightest thread to my ship.
Maybe I miss something? Is there a trick? Thanks for a hint in forward.


Servers / Phalanx -PvE- Server, v1.2.9
« on: April 27, 2015, 07:23:58 am »
Server name: Phalanx -PvE-
Version: 1.2.9
Server address:
Hosted in: Germany, EU

Server settings:
* Mods installed: None
* Whitelist only: No
* Player limit: 100
* PVP: No
* EXP penalty: No
* Money penalty: Yes
* Ship penalty: No

It is a dedicated server running on Debian Linux 7.8 (Wheezy) and is up permanently 24/7. Running it by nohup & didn't work and also the --dedicated did not really allow me to detach the terminal/session. I made it work with using the cool tool "screen", which allowed me to detach the session and log off. Just as a side note if you run into the same problems on Linux.

Flying around can be sloppy sometimes. It's a virtual server and maybe it could be it is competing with other virtual machines for ressources like CPU/RAM. It can also be the network connection. Though it is still very playable, even with these small lags. If it will get worse or occur more often, I will investigate it together with the hoster.

If there is anything you want me to tell or ask, leave me a PM here in the forum, thanks.
