https://robertsspaceindustries.com/galactapedia/article/RWolrNa1Ge-magnus-system: Borea II is said to be a harsh climate due to unfettered shipbuilding, but if I think of shipbuilding, I don’t think of heavy chemical plants or anything else with the potential to disrupt the atmosphere in 100 years time.
Maybe a supervolcanic eruption would be better? In reality these things influence the atmosphere and climate of Earth way more than our current pollution does, so these could easily be the culprit.
In general it might be cool to have some more natural disasters like volcanoes disrupt terraforming efforts, or even help it!, to have some more variety in our 100 systems. As far as I can tell we do not have that many active volcanoes on habitable planets in the lore yet (and Cellin, which was at one point said to have over 100 active volcanoes, doesn’t seem to have them).https://robertsspaceindustries.com/galactapedia/article/RxnzEP5m1Q-aero-terra-I: Should be either none have yet succeeded, or all have yet to succeed.
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/galactapedia/article/RL6ZrMrLNa-terra-terra-iii: Text says Terra is discovered in 2514 and the info-box has the date as 2516.
https://robertsspaceindustries.com/galactapedia/article/R9vGaQPXJN-borea-magnus-ii: Text says Drake and others purchased the abandoned UEE Navy facilities in recent decades, but elsewhere (Magnus system entry) it specifies the date as 2845, more than a century ago.https://robertsspaceindustries.com/galactapedia/article/01LvKoLvZ8-human-xian-trade-initiative-huxa: Negotiations for 10,000 page HuXa -> Negotiations for the 10,000 page HuXa
And lastly, how very cool to know how the first pirate gangs came into being! 🙂
Thank you lore team :slightly_smiling_face:
- All raw materials mined from Magnus I were processed on Borea without any environmental restrictions. A supervolcano sounds interesting, and I’ll keep it under my hat for future articles.
- I’ve changed it to “none have succeeded”
- looks like a typo. Fixed.
- This includes multiple shipbuilders, not just Drake. Other operations have moved in more recently, and Drake continues to expand.
- Glad you enjoyed the pirate origin story!
