I have marked the location of what appears to be a small ABN base , in a remote part of Homeworld sector, in space. It was there as of roughly 8 am server time Sept 19. you should be able to see the marker just by entering homeworld sector; let me know if this didn’t work! by now they may have evacuated it or layed an ambush there; my marker has been up for hours.
Bob in answer to your question, the default activity for me in PVP areas is to start fights with no players or player structures, leave free goodies for all and announce the location. If interfered with in this process by pirates or something, then it’s necessary to go into retaliation/deprival mode , until the pirates have suffered losses greater than their gains. at that point i can revert to humanitarian/neutrality mode as i have done in the past , assisting ABN and everyone else on an equal basis.
It’s simming Switzerland … except switzerland took about a thousand casualties in WW2… here there are no hard feelings. . I’m just one player, I’ll do what I can to them with my limited abilities while there are hostilities; maybe it will be enough and maybe not.
