(WIP)

The number and yields of asteroids in each sector are unvarying between game starts so the number of self-sustaining factories of each category able to be supported by the sector is consistent even if there is a lot of flexibility in the types of output wares able to be produced. This section gives template complexes for getting the most out of each sector. In general every 40 yield of silicon can utilise 50 yield of ore. To singlehandedly support a PHQ requires 8.3x (616/h Silicon productivity and an Ore asteroid with >2 yield.

Sun Strength: 9/9 multiplier (100%)

Silicon Productivity: 6.5x (507/h)(25, 18, 13 and 8 yields)

Ore Productivity: 15x (4,546/h)(37, 27, 26, 25, 13, 12 and 8 yields)

NPC Activity

Frequent Argon military patrols and occasional military patrols from all other races except Terran.

OTAS capital ships also patrol through the sector.

There are two orbital weapons platforms in the sector.

A constant stream of traders pass through the sector mostly between the West and South gates.

Pirates occasionally come from the West gate.

Several Argon stations including 2 Solar Power Plants and a Military Outpost.

Commentary

A very busy sector due to it having a central location in the universe. The frequent military patrols mean that the complex should be built in the north of the map far from the ecliptic to avoid discovery by hostile races invading the sector and not be considered if hostile to the Argon. The large flow of traders and local Military Outpost makes this a good sector for selling products to NPCs for credits. The excess of Ore yield compared to Silicon means not all Ore asteroids are utilised. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ. The two NPC solar power plants in the sector can be used for further Ore asteroid utilisation.

NPC Activity

Frequent Terran M2 and M7M patrols on the east side of the sector

Spitfyre police patrols

Innumerable Springblossom traders

Several Terran stations

Occasional Ice Miner

Commentary

A huge sector with asteroids scattered over large distances around the central planetoid making hauling mines with a Tractor Beam a very tedious task.  If the player uses an M7M for combat this is one of the six sectors that will need to be used for dedicated missile production. As long as the player stays neutral with the Terrans this sector is safe for construction and the sector is large enough to outright avoid patrols even if hostile. It is advisable to place the complex hub in the south east of the sector to avoid military patrols. This sector can singlehandedly support a PHQ.

NPC Activity

Frequent Argon and Boron traders pass through the sector

Patrolling Argon military ships pass through the sector

Argon Rapid Response M1 often retreats to this sector

Commentary

A good sector for an early complex due to the high yields of asteroids and safety provided by the argon military however care must be taken never to fall into negative Race Rank values with the Argon because conflicts with the rapid response fleet will quickly become self reinforcing. It is advisable to place the complex in the southwest of the sector for easy access to the trade lanes and jump gates. This sector can singlehandedly support a PHQ.

Frequently used by Jonferco, Plutarch and RR capital ships to repair

Commentary

A diplomatically complicated sector to build in because there are Argon, Boron, Paranid and Split owned fight ships patrolling the sector at all times. It is not advisable to build in this sector if hostile to any Commonwealth race other than the Teladi. The comparative excess of silicon to ore means the complex can support a factory producing drones in addition to 7 factories for missile support/ship equipping/stock market manipulation. There are two military outposts and an equipment dock in the sector to sell excess products at. It is advisable to place the complex hub >30km behind or above the of the Nouth gate. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.

NPC Activity

Until the war is ended at the end of Shady Business there are frequent Argon and Terran fleets present and the race with the lower race rank will home in on player assets and attack them OOS

After ending the war there are frequent Terran military patrols that traverse the sector

Commentary

A large sector with only one gate that can be jumped to. It is a very bad idea to build a complex in this sector before ending the war since a constant stream of Argon/Terran ships will keep attacking player assets in the sector when OOS. The frequent military patrols mean that the complex should be built in the southwest of the map far from the ecliptic to avoid discovery by hostile races invading the sector and not be considered if hostile to the Terran. The excess of Ore yield compared to Silicon means not all Ore asteroids are utilised. This sector can singlehandedly support a PHQ but is not recommended due to the time it takes to complete the Shady Business plot during which the PHQ cannot be utilised.

Commentary

A quiet sector located in the middle of the X-universe. Most military patrols go around this sector due to how big it is. The comparative excess of silicon to ore means the complex can support 2 factories producing drones or Advanced Satellites in addition to 29 factories for missile support/ship equipping/stock market manipulation. It is advisable to place the complex hub >30km behind or above one of the jump gates. This sector can singlehandedly support a PHQ.

Commentary

A very busy sector due to it being a bottleneck between the southwestern sectors and the southern Paranid sectors. The frequent military patrols mean that the complex should be built in the south of the map far from the ecliptic to avoid discovery by hostile races invading the sector and not be considered if hostile to the Boron. The large flow of traders makes this a good sector for selling products to NPCs for credits. The lack of Ore yield means this sector should be used for producing products that require Silicon Wafers like Microchips, Computer Components, satellites and drones or used to produce Crystals to supply complexes in sectors without silicon containing asteroids. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ without importing Ore.

NPC Activity

Regular Xenon patrols from the North gate

Heavy Argon RR presence

A constant stream of traders pass through the sector mostly between the West and South gates.

Commentary

A sector bordering the war zone and a Xenon sector meaning player owned ships will need to approach via the south gate or use a Jump Drive. Care must be taken never to fall into negative Race Rank values with the Argon because conflicts with the rapid response fleet will quickly become self reinforcing. There is almost always a military patrol or rapid response ship in this sector. The comparative excess of silicon to ore means the complex can support 2 factories producing drones or Advanced Satellites in addition to 13 factories for missile support/ship equipping/stock market manipulation and 3 Medium Bio/Food factories for supplying local demand. It is advisable to place the complex hub >30km above the South jump gate. This sector can barely singlehandedly support a PHQ (system reaches equilibrium once Energy Cells reach capacity).

Due to the location of the sector in "Pirate Alley" there is a need to defend complexes built if the player does not have enough Race Rank to be neutral with the pirates and should not be considered early on until the capital ships have been purged by military patrols. The frequent use of the sector for passing military patrols means that any complexes should be built in the east of the sector at >30km from the ecliptic. As this sector is owned by pirates the complex can be used to produce illegals although there is only enough spare energy for one Bio/Food factory. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.

NPC Activity

0-2 Goner stations may spawn on game start which attract TS traffic of mainly Argon and Paranid origin

Sector is rarely used to jump spawn small Pirate and Yaki fighter squads (1-3 M3/M4 ships) and Duke's Dangerous Goods TS ships

No instances of military patrols or pirates entering the sector have been observed

Commentary

For game starts hostile to the Argon getting to the sector can be challenging but the lack of threats unable to be dealt with by a single laser tower or M6, lack of obstacles during mine relocation, complete asteroid utilisation and relative sector neutrality make this sector ideal for a first complex. The comparative excess of silicon to ore means the complex can support a factory producing drones or Advanced Satellites in addition to 7 factories for missile support/ship equipping/stock market manipulation. It is advisable to place the complex hub within 4.5km of the South gate. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.

Commentary

A very busy sector due to it having a central location in the universe. The frequent military patrols mean that the complex should be built in the east of the map far from the ecliptic to avoid discovery by hostile races invading the sector and not be considered if hostile to the Argon. The large flow of traders and local Equipment Dock makes this a good sector for selling products to NPCs for credits. The excess of Ore yield compared to Silicon means not all Ore is utilised. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.

Commentary

A central Boron sector which is popular for setting up early stations and later a complex for generating credits. There are multiple NPC solar power plants, mines and Boron food and bio stations within two jumps to buy resources to feed partially constructed complexes and several equipment docks and military outposts to sell produced lasers, missiles and shields in addition to the numerous NPC traders that pass through the sector. The excess of Ore yield compared to Silicon means not all Ore asteroids are utilised. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ. The nearby NPC solar power plants and silicon mines can be used for further Ore asteroid utilisation. The close proximity to a shipyard makes hiring NPC TLs to erect Boron stations before the player owns a TL a viable option.

Commentary

A good sector for an early complex due to the proximity to several equipment docks and safety provided by the argon military however care must be taken never to fall into negative Race Rank values with the Argon because conflicts with the rapid response fleet will quickly become self reinforcing. It is advisable to place the complex in the middle of the sector for easy access to the trade lanes and jump gates. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.

NPC Activity

Yaki fighter squads (1-3 M3/M4 ships) frequently patrol the sector

The Paranid Military Outpost in Empire's Edge will periodically send military patrols through the sector on the way to Senator's Badlands

Commentary

One of the most resource rich sectors in the game and not owned by a major race making this sector an ideal base of operations. There is enough Silicon productivity for a self sustaining complex that can support the PHQ and 198 factories for missile support/ship equipping/stock market manipulation which is enough to instantly supply most ships able to be produced by the PHQ. There is an excess of Ore asteroids so not all are used. The density of the asteroid field is so high that some asteroids need to be destroyed using missiles or a Mobile Drilling System so some mines can be moved out of the asteroid field before returning later to place mines on the asteroids when they respawn. If the player uses an M7M for combat this is one of the six sectors that will need to be used for dedicated missile production. By there being no sector owner the complex and PHQ is safe from RR ships if the player is hostile to a major race while the Yaki patrols are small enough to easily be fought off. It is advisable to place the complex hub in the south west of the sector at least 50km from the South Gate to avoid the infrequent Paranid military patrols. This sector can singlehandedly support a PHQ.

Commentary

A convenient sector for a complex since it is close to Hatikvah's Faith making it a useful refuelling stop for jumping due to the relative central position in the universe before ownership of the HUB is obtained and for equipping ships brought at the nearby OTAS Shipyard in Legends Home (the neighbouring sector). If hostile to the Argon it also makes a quiet base of operations for launching assaults into argon space from. The slight excess of Ore yield compared to Silicon means not all Ore asteroids are utilised. Due to the medium size of complex able to be sustained it typically makes a good second self sustaining complex. This is a good sector for having 10x Lasertower Factories for keeping other player owned stations/complexes secured. This sector cannot singlehandedly support a PHQ.
