Making a start

Log entry Sunday June 24th 2018

On Monday the 18th I headed to Ancient Greece where I began manufacturing Settler Shin Guards, I had enough raw materials for 1k attempts, several BPs were gained some of which were for Hoplite armour parts, which was the objective, I managed a couple of globals, my first while crafting for a very long time. There is a bug, an error message will appear on screen after TPing, exiting a vehicle or sometimes at what appears to be a random time, it is related to Next Island missions, this message was generated after every click while crafting, my graphics slowed down a lot as the number of onscreen messages appeared. I have created a support case for this.

I had intended to visit more during this week but found I was too tired.

Saturday the 23rd, Space Skilling Saturday occurred, after which I was intending to do more crafting, I began to look at what I could make and where, I noticed I will need to create a shopping list to sustain this, I began to doze and realized I would not be doing this tonight.

I have not had an opportunity to explore but I have found the post by “Risen Ra Oh” that lists TP locations including some new ones. Hopefully I will be able to find some time soon to have a wander.

No progress from the Disciples, Cals is on vacation and Budski has not had the opportunity. It is summer here in the Northern Hemisphere so there are plenty of other things to do during the long warm evenings.

Return to Next Island

Log entry Sunday June 17th 2018

Again, very little going on however after Space Skilling Saturday the Sleepyheads (well Phil and Nocturaline) helped me out by transporting myself and most of my stackable items to Next Island. As Space Skilling Saturday will be at Next Island next week it was the appropriate time.

I arrived to find no Crystal Centre, clearly I had missed something, I tried #nextisland and was informed by “Risen Ra Oh” that I had missed an update, it seems there are several new TPs and some old ones have been removed. He told me he had put some updates on the forum but checking nextisland.com I could not find anything, not even from an official. I am not sure which forum Ra was referring to.

It seems I will be busier next week, not only will I be in a position to begin crafting but I will have some exploring to do. Quite looking forward to it, I hope I can find some time.

It seems I am not the only one struggling with time, Neither Cals or Budski have been on line and Wolta’s only appearance was for Space Skilling Saturday.

A Lazy week

Tuesday 22nd: I head to Next Island in my Quad. On arrival I take on the Red Papoo and get to 7600/10k, Later I attend SSI.

Wednesday 23rd and Friday 25th: I attend SSI both days. On the Friday I get to 8630/10k for the Red Papoo mission.

Saturday 26th: I travel by Quad to Calypso where I place a few items on auction. It’s Space Skilling Saturday and at the beginning of that I transport various stacks to Crystal Palace ready for future transport to Next Island.

I have not seen either Cals or Budski this week although Cals has been on line.

Disciples stats:-
Cals – 65.99%
Budski – 13.65%

Divine Intervention

Log entry Sunday May 20th 2018

Monday 14th: I begin the week on Arkadia and as I am there I complete day 3/14 for the Oratan Payback Mission III, I did start that yesterday. Cals comes on line and I hand him the the ArMatrix SB-10 (L), he will be level 10 soon so will be able to test it, I am curious about these blades as they use ammo, this could be quite cost effective as it can impart similar economy as a gun and it should last longer. I head to Next Island and arrive in time to take part in SSI.

Wednesday 16th: I begin a Red Papoo hunt but am too tired to complete it so return to the TP to complete another day.

Friday 18th: I complete the Red Papoo hunt started on Wednesday, this takes me to 6752/10k.

Saturday 19th: I head from Next Island to Calypso Space Station by Quad and then take part in Space Skilling Saturday. Followed by a Warp for a new client. I go to the surface of Cyrene and scout the location of the Divine Golem, I test it too and survive more than one hit. Encouraged by this I decide to try this solo, stupid of me.

Sunday 20th: Still on Cyrene I take a look around, this planet always confuses me, I have not spent enough time here maybe if I had I would be confused. Nocturaline and Wolta warp in by Equus and heal me while I take on the Divine Golem, I had no Neurostim-C so it was not quite so easy as previous Divine creatures but we did it, considering I was quite drunk at the time that was a bit of a surprise. After Wolta stays to complete missions but Nocturaline and I Warp to Crystal Palace, I have decided to relocate to Next Island and am moving stacks there for crafting purposes, I am not sure what I need so I am moving almost everything, currently this is being put into Crystal Palace storage in readiness. I go the Calypso Space Station where I see Hone and complete the Divine Intervention mission then I return to Crystal Palace where I hunt a few Kreltin.

 

I have noticed a bit of an oddity with loot this week, it is almost equal to ammo cost for every hunt I have done.
