Yeah in TC the HUB pretty much required you to turn Barren Shores and Terran Unknown Sector 1 into Microchip producing complexes.

Good luck with AP. The RR ships add a new level of challenge.

Mahi Ma sub-light transmission to BDK: "Right, that just about fixes up my office suite. Now I need to send you the far more extensive resource list needed to repair the Hub itself ..." :D

Oh, and moving from Tech Sp to the X Trilogy Universe (gameplay) forum.

I just want to mention that the HQ plot starts some hours after finishing the Hub plot

Oh yeah that's right! Hopefully it doesn't involve collecting huge amounts of resources like the hub plot :D

Yeah, but he's playing on late patch, vanilla easy mode. So you know, it's doable after a few years.

I kid, but older patches had even crazier requirements. And someone had a mod to restore those or even make it tougher.

As above, it used to be 250k and now it's down to a 'mere' 75k. But I know all about the struggle. Also I'm using them to repair ships with the CODEA mod. So yeah.

Honestly, I would probably have built more microchip factories if it was still 250k because that is a lot. More than 3 times the amount I struggled with. Struggle as in stay in one sector and be bored out of my mind.

I still recall how Mahi Ma asked you to "get a couple of things".

With that request, you would think it would be quick to get those couple of things, but in fact, you'll be busy for several months at least.

I don't know but I wouldn't mind seeing a mod where you could strangle Bala Gi with his own entrails and fix the darn Hub with
chewing gum and a paper clip. :D

I did it old style too!

My Chip complexes were huge!

I also remember having dozens of teladianium foundries too. Pretty sure I caused power blackouts in most of the sectors. That might have been terran conflict.

Got all this to come again in my new AP game.
