Boring Boron plot missions?

Post by MTM1977 » Thu, 1. Jan 09, 22:11

I recently started a new game with the Boring Boron start.
So far i have not found even the first plot mission, so could someone point out from what sector i could find the first plot mission?

I think there has to be some way to trigger some other plot (i had a Boron plot in mind...).

The Boring Boron starts in Kingdom End, you only have on Octopus ship and 2000 credits, so it would take ages to even make it to Omicron Lyrae...

In addition, on Boring Boron start Paranid and Split are hostile towards you, so it is not possible even travel out side Boron/Argon/Teladi controlled areas...

I have played for quite a while already, i now have Friend of Priest reputation with Paranid, but i can only go as far as Emperor Mines, if i try to enter Paranid Prime, they start shooting at me...

So, i am a bit stuck at the moment, i am trying to improve my Paranid rep further to see if i can enter their core systems that way...

I picked the Boring Boron start specifically so I could do the Hub storyline as my first one and I've already started it, you need to attain the rank of Kings Knight to get it to activate mate.

I did this quite easily by doing station missions and trading in and around Boron/Argon space. As a side effect at the same time I also improved my relations with The Split and Paranid just by doing missions for some of their guys in the stations in Argon/Boron space too so I was able to enter all of their core sectors by the time the Hub missions finally started.

Good luck MTM1977 :)

Huge thanks mate!

I am a long way from Kings Knight (at Noble Peer atm), but at least i finally know what i should be aiming for :)

Thanks again!

one more thing...
Are you already able to enter Paranid/Split core systems? If so, what rank you have with them?

From my previous game i know that there are couple of abandoned ships to be claimed near Paranid Prime, but i first need to get in to Paranid Prime without the Paranid shooting at my ship... ;)

No probs mate :D I better quickly point out that although I said it was easy to get to Kings Knight it did take me two solid weekends of play to do it though just in case I've come across as some superior smug git :lol:

I've just read your other thread and and a memory has been sparked in me about something.

I am allowed to enter the Paranid core sectors but all the Customs/border control ships are still hostile to me so every time I see one I have to fly to within communications range and apologise to them which has so far always turned them friendly also I've found a lasertower in Emperor's Mines that hates me and I can't do anything about it.

I think these two things are slight bugs.

Just got in to Paranid Prime :)
One Paranid ship was hostile, but i apologised to it and it turned not hostile.

I have not run in to the laser tower, so either it doesn't hate me or i have not gone too close to it...

Excellent sounds like you'll have the Hub missions up and running within a few Boron race ranks now then :D

Weird thing, on Empire's Edge, one Paranid station (Space Jewellery) is hostile towards me, while all others are not... don't know why that is...

Yep It's hostile to me too as are I think a couple of other Paranid stations -another small bug left over from going from the Paranid's mortal enemy to a friend maybe.

I wouldn't say that. Presumably at one point you were hated by the Paranid, and some of them still hate you even after you've fixed your overall rep with the race.
