    [M] Ma'am, we have found a trace of the devices we were searching for!
    [M] But..it is.. strange..
    [P] Strange? Please be more precise, Meyers!
    [M] Strange..in a way its position seems to be located at .. the planet orbit we run into the Zirax Ambush two years ago when arriving in that galaxy.. and a I bet my wage, these energetic signals would have not remained unnoticed by any of the fleets vessels if we did not run into that battle...
    [P] Damn... I know we should have tried to gather more info about that system and not retreat that early while we still had the chance. Screw you, Yaden. Now this will become very complicated..
    [P] Meyers!
    [M] Ma'am?
    [P] Establish a secure com connection to our friends of GLaD and inform them about our findings. They need to handle that.
    [P] I'll inform Benner. And, Meyers, no word to anyone else!
    [M] Affirmative, Ma'am!

    @Hummel-o-War
    One slight change to this line here, please -> < Polaris standing required: 18000 (friendly)
    18000 just puts you to END of Neutral - 18001 BEGINS Friendly

    When I saw this, I thought I could finally play this first Polaris mission. (which is before this Uncertain outcomes mission) But I was wrong. Despite many attempts, "Lava planet" is not found in the entire solar system. Or else, the "Starter Solarsystem" is only 2 planets and the nearest Solar System is over 600 Lightyears away. And this cannot be achieved because the pentaxid tank is only 500. And if at some start this "Lava planet" is, then missing "Alien planet" or something ...
    Anyway, the whole "storyline" is just one mess, and there is several old POI (e.g. radar station/xenu main frame) and other "game stoppers". This "should" be corrected when A12 is released, but I suspect. For so long, these erroneous tasks have been such that I don't think developers are interested in this aspect (single player story line) of the game at all.

    I think the current issue is that the game mechanics need refinements.
    When the game mechanics are a bit more cemented, then the PDA and the missions will get more attention. In the meantime, if you do come across issues, the best way to get them fixed is to fill out a bug report with exact details as to what mission is "broken".

    There is always a lava planet in each solar system, and there are more than 2 planets. Don't forget you need to warp around to uncover the other planets on the map! :D

    I've made a fun story for the game running at Dark Skies server (im a moderator for). Its background to explain the portal system I've made to make it easy for friends who start on different planets to get together easily.

    I'd love to have my story at the Lore section of the forum. I dont want to step on Hummel-o-War's toes though. I'm open to editing to fit current lore too. Please let me know where I can send the HTML file (text and images) or send it as a gmail.

    Thank you devs, sys admin and everyone who helps make this game awesome! :~)

    Welll... Its been about 2 weeks so I thought I'd give an update. I've sent Hummel-o-War my story and he replied received, "hope to have time to read through soon". well... I know he's very busy but that was on the 3rd. I've since been able to post the story to the new website for the Dark Skies server with gorgeous and exciting pictures and the same style as the Lore section posts.

    https://dark-skies.enjin.com/forum/m/52769150/viewthread/33078599-mystery-temples

    If I'm not allowed to post a link then I beg forgiveness but I'm just too excited about this stuff. And with A12 coming I have plans to make more glorious stories and builds and maybe a mod or two!

    Stay Awesome Eleon folks!

    Salutations,
    First of all : thank you very much for the fun already had with your very nice game!
    And first post here, so sorry if wrong place, also : please forgive my bad english.

    Discovered and started the game recently, playing in solo survival mode. usually playing RTS or MMORTS, so didn't exepect to love this game so much. Last night did the full "Uncertain Outcome" story: was lucky and could succeed but didn't sleep a lot;)

    There is maybe a problem about the story ( will not spoil don't run away, it's "technical") : was late and english is not my language, so I didn't read all dialogue/text with enoegh attention, thinking : "anyway, I'll be able to read and translate later in the "PDA log"...BUT only the first dialogue(s?) are registerd in...can't find back the rest of the text/dialogues that poped during the story.

    So I just can't remember/understand if some the very nice "artisanal objects" I did recieve at the end have some use/importance for the following of my/the game?
    Also, I remember to have read something about consequences of what I've discovered in that nice story...but can't remember what:/
    Is there a way to access those text again without redoing the story? Am I wrong to think that I should be able to read them in the "PDA Log"?

    Again and in adavance, thanks a lot for this game!
