Found you.

Just north of you are 2 orange planets, that's Silverfire.

Yup. How you do that is up to you: take over other people's planets, or colonise your own. Raid for the resources, or trade for them.

does having 2 arc in 1 fleet help speed things up?

I'm not sure. I think that just gives you more population/resources on the planet that you colonise, meaning it gets up and running quicker.

I went for two separate fleets of 1 Arc each, but in the long run it probably doesn't matter much.

My color is blueish gray, if that helps.

As far as I'm aware, they're all the same.

I think it's just cosmetic. Having them all the same color would be kind of bland.

Also, is there a way you can check how far away your ships are from reaching their destination? None of my fleets seem to have moved at all this turn... Also, I don't see any change in my resources compared to last turn.

Odd, mine hasn't changed either. Seems the turn is late today.

Also, is there a way you can check how far away your ships are from reaching their destination?

You get an email from [email protected] which tells you the distance each fleet has to go and the speed they travelled at that turn.

Well, then I guess there's a problem with turns, cause I haven't had any emails either.

Anyone noticed something odd about resource production? Last turn my home planet said 10k will be produced and that I had 8.9k on hand, but this turn I only had 17.9k to spend. So 1k has just gone missing. Rather annoying as I wanted that 2nd Arc :(

If I understand the turn email right, both of the arcs I sent out on turn 1 should arrive next turn :D

3 turns until I get a Slingshot and Long Range Sensors.

In 42 turns, my colony ship should arrive at the centre of the galaxy - but it'll be worth it! Maybe...

I got the following:

Planet Upgrade: Alpha Capetiae (2924414) Building -- Slingshot 20% done.
Fleet: Fleet #6457, 1 arc (6457) enroute -- distance = 34.43 speed = 0.00
Fleet: Fleet #6458, 1 arc (6458) enroute -- distance = 0.60 speed = 0.00
Fleet: Fleet #6463, 1 bulkfreighter (6463) enroute -- distance = 14.18 speed = 0.00

Does this mean my ships aren't moving this turn or something?

It means last turn their speed was 0.00 and they have X distance left to go.

turn was apparently late, my fleets moved now - much later than the 15:00 turn time.
