Special command software + transporter device + ship that can carry marines = Profit. Worked before, not sure about now.

I just started a new game. The screen confirms it's 3.6.

Flew over to CEOs Buckzoid, and checked out the Eq Dock for you. It still has Trade 3.

"QJE and MK3 (make them available again, don't give a shit)"

Personal Console->Global ship set homebase station list is not sorted - just a big trash can full of unfindable data.

Just coming back to this and all I have to say is wow. Looks incredible and I’m doing a vagrant start to get my legs back. I really like the shipyard allowing repairs and have assembled a ragtag group of ships. I just set up three sanctuaries and realized you need perks to do anything useful. What would you recommend for your first few perks? Priority will be station building factories and then ships in another sector and equipment in the third. From a perks standpoint, those are precious and so I want to get them right.

Also, is there a way to enable ocv in the vagrant start? I wanted some time to get used to new changes, but would be nice to turn them on if things get too quiet.
I'm your worst nightmare....

No you have to start a new game. Think of your first play through as a tutorial :-)

[EDIT] Seriously, the way people do it is to delay acquiring a 2nd Sanctuary until 24 hours have passed. The OCV would not attack you when the threat level is below 2, so that scheme put the first OCV attack around 1d 18h+4h. (24+18h for warning message, 24+22h for actual attack).

In LU it's not so critical, In Mayhem there are much more stations a player have. And I don't want to discredit anybody. just a big trash can full of unfindable data - this phrase saying that I think it is important issue, not "Panda, how dare you..."

1st Sanctuary: Ship hangar, ship specialization, QJE, max population (some time later) - to build cargo ships.
2nd Sanctuary: Laser, Laser specialization, no food, max population - to provide money flow.

@The Cuban Nightmare

You only get 4 perks per station, unless you start a permanent war with 1-2 races, which bumps your total number of perks to 5 or 6.

You can re-roll your perks at a cost of bumping up your empire-wide threat level, which makes the OCV waves harder.

1st: (USO) Ship hangar (to build, repair and upgrade ships), Ship specialization (faster ship building), extra engine tuning (faster ships), max population (for faster building @ level 9)

2nd: (USB in my game): Laser Manufacturing, laser specialization, max population (level 9).

3rd is for shields: Shield manufacturing, Shield Specialization, Max Population (level 9).

Maybe a sector for bait 1, bait 2, (maybe free OWP, free Research station).

If you are a big fan of missiles, a sector for missiles would be good.

That should get you started.

Is there a better way than this?
https://puu.sh/zmPlE/02e70a196a.jpg

Apart from that i have 2 couriers, a TS+ for energy cells and a TS to gather shields and lasers produced by other sanctuaries with a HUGE courier queue (like 40 lines).

Also from 4 to 6 DAs for other Sanctuaries, and 1 DA per MLCC dock to ferry energy cells.

Any suggestions on how to improve it?
I'd like to hear or see what other people have.

P.S. Is there a Discord for Mayhem players? Or they'd rather play Mayhem all the time? (Makes sense)

@daztar I have something like this in my central hub, but in my logistic system colonies deliver goods to hub and aquire resourses from hub by themselves, so hub logistic preferenses are more lightweighted. You can download my save 1 or 2 pages above to see how it is looks like.

I don't usually bother automating my Crystal sales. Especially not the Black one. Just occasionally fill up a TS with all random Crystal/Minerals and Nividium and send it to a Mining Outpost.

Sirokos has very low robustness, yet costs 60K per hour. Isn't it M7's maintenance cost? It doubled my most expensive M6.

Robustness is random for each game. The Sirokos would have different value if you start a new game!!!!!!
