    I am eager to have at least 1 size 4 and 3 size 3 of those weapons!

    If you want the bigger weapons then you need to help complete the community goal. Otherwise we may get stuck with only size 2 again.

    Managed to get a tissue sample and get it to Wolf, but you can only sell it on the Black Market. Odd that its illicit in that system despite the public call. Aegis research should be legal.
    Also, its only worth one tonne also despite the expense and risk of getting it under fire from a 'goid. Unfortunately it feels like (breaking immersion) that FDev have not bothered to alter the CG mechanism or any cargo rules to add this feature, which makes it illogical and counter intuitive in game. 8^(
    Just why should I bother getting more?

    lots of people are tired of CGs, before launch of 2.4 they redid the same community goal a couple of times.
    its hard to keep people motivated for a tier goal that says nothing about the award.

    I bet it wasn't the tier of completion that's barring us from the size 3 and 4 weapons. I bet we just haven't found a Thargoid worthy of them yet.

    I certainly hope this is the case, and they'll be released over time as the arms race continues. Until we're given evidence to the contrary however, the only way to know for sure is to reach each tier and see what we've unlocked

    I know. I'm struggling to keep motivated myself. I dislike trading CGs as a general rule and feel forced into helping with this one, in order to get the reward.

    Are you looking at class 1? They won't show up unless it's 2 or higher

    What about the Tissue Sampler? Should that be listed? Where do I pick one up for the CG ?

    Honestly I'm confused as to why we have that, seems like it should have been a reward for a previous CG, or created by Palin or something on release day. It just seems to have randomly appeared really.

    I first though it was a mistake, like the hull re-inforcments with corrosion resist,.

    Watched a good video by Zm4rc0:



    Before watching this video a couple of hours ago, I was having a chat about the aliens with my fellow faction members in CIU, with regards as to whether or not we should hunt down the Lotus (flower) ships. They bent my ear about them not being hostile, and I had to agree with them eventually, despite an itchy trigger finger...

    In all cases of when we show up in a non-human signal source, we have never witnessed the Lotus vessels destroying/disabling any of the ships - EVER.

    Instead, we watch as they take some escape pods, probes, alien sensors, etc. and scan the other ships - possibly for signs of life? In the video, Zm4arc0 makes a good point about them possibly looking for someone, potentially ex-president Halsey.

    Also, he pointed out that the old style ship we have since discovered (the ones that looks similar to the 1980s Elite game) is a freshly downed one - with the nearby canisters of thargoid stuff as potential proof, since that stuff may have disapeared after hundreds of years - and I'd have to agree with him, despite us not fully knowing the age. However, another bit of evidence that supports it is a freshly downed one is the fact that the nearby megaship Victoria's Song picked up its energy readings while doing routine survery scans of the surface, and thus made the call to whomever their contractor was (thinking the feds?).

    From now on I'll be gathering Meta-Alloys for the Lotus ships - now I'm not sure if I believe in the two faction thing involving the Oresrians and Klaxxians, but it is quite clear that the Lotus ships have never fired on us first and do give us a good 5-10 seconds of time to get away (orange as a warning on radar) rather than absolutely chase us and destroy us. Even when they hyperdict us they do not destroy us.

    With a couple of months to go, potentially, before 2.4 gets serious, I think we should aim to feed the Thargoids meta-alloys. They are harvesting the alloys so they can restore their strength and numbers, one would imagine - and they are probably scraping the bottom of the barrel by coming to the Pleiades if they are on the run.

    Another thing to consider, which is mentioned in the video and a thing I discussed with CIU, is the caustic clouds of gas. These clouds are present whenever we jump in, and it is easy to assume the Lotus ship(s) did the deed - but could this cloud be, along with the hull damage, a form of attack that the agressive thargoids use?

    The Lotus ship's are capable of it, but only when they die... If any Lotus ships died whilst fighting the federation or imperials, then where are the dead alien ships that produced the cloud? There are none, because it wasn't the Lotus ships that did the crime - they've merely jumped into the aftermath trying to help, just like us - hence while they scan us but then leave us be (if they are agressive, then it may be they are suspicious of us from previous encounters with humans - show them some good will and drop some meta alloys to gain their trust).

    For now, I'll help them with meta-alloys and get scans from them - that will change if they get agressive with us, but for now, I think peace is the better option until we learn more about them.

    Let's get the CG's done for the main threat that's incoming... the flying saucers

    It turns out that if you have enough commanders you can insta-kill a thargoid...
