Can say it has been…interesting this season. Time was cut short. Perhaps for the better, we shall soon find out. For those that have not already prepared for this, there are quite a few tricks to make transitioning to another season much less painful.
The blueprint factory is your frienemy. It is nice to have several ships at the ready. It is handy to have needed materials stocked where they have no limits. This can cause several issues as well. I have made a few different factory stuffers for adding materials and OCD stuffers for getting those materials out. Below are just a couple of my most favorite. Creative mode is a wonderful place to build the wafer of choice. Look at devices and see which ones have the most materials that are currently in your BP factory in HWS then spawn to recycle it. With the recycle level 5, this is much handier than using a multi tool in most cases. CV’s seem to work the best for removing chunks of ingots. Making a CV block with the T3 & T4 extenders can get the optronics in the OCD as well.
Iron blocks slab. To fill and empty iron:
400 Advanced constructors. Mostly Neo and Titanium:
Assortment of T2 generators, XL thrusters, and advanced constructors:
Once you have the factory nearly empty, it’s time to fill it with a disposable army of sorts. I suggest at minimum a handful of warp capable CV’s and SV’s. A small teleport base is handy to have as needed. I have a decent disposable army at the ready on my workshop. I do take requests if someone finds a need that is not there.
Once you are all packed up and ready to live out the rest of limbo, I suggest camping out at ECC HQ. It’s basically a shopping mall and emergency evacuation shelter all in one. It does cost to keep structures but knowing the disposable arts keeps that in check. There are plenty of HQ missions to run during your stay. There is also quick access to the teleport monoliths if you need a base planted that is easy to get to and from. There are many ways to wait out the storm, Just post your questions and ideas here.
