Note: there is more then sufficient motivation to get out there and spread to the stars. so it is irksome to have exhausted the farsu deposit on my home planet in UNDER 12 hours of having built my initial farsu mine of which i only built a grand total of 9. Doesn’t help that not only were there ZERO habitable colonizable planets in my home system, i also had ZERO asteroid belts to mine. I GET it, but i was already getting my ass in gear i didn’t need the gynormous monstrous economy sized boot shoving my ass out the airlock…please fix diz algoritm…seriously painful, particularly when hearing about other folks love stories with their starting systems.
It’s one thing knowing you have to jockey with the many other people swarming around you, LITERALLY, if you want to expand but when your practically choking from the get go it’s going to be rather frustrating, PARTICULARLY for unexperienced players.
I rolled with it and just went total war mode with…thats right…scouts. claimed adjacent systems. Not great planets, but better then nothing. Bumpy road resource wise, BUT found some interesting natives which is making things rather cool in some ways to say the least. Just resource sucktastic, but i’m working on that as best i can
