    It will definitely be interesting to see how star gates and fighting mechanics will work. I'm liking the idea that stuff takes time. Glad I have a long time to prepare how I'm going to play since so many games out today are instant gratification type.

    Hi everyone! 

    Considering todays post about BOO and the numbers of players in the top ten Orgs, 
    I have decided to post my charts on here as well as Twitter. 

    I forgot to place my name on them and now have, but figured seeing as it is fit, I would post them directly here as well, it's just been a little supervising side project of mine to see how the orgs and forums handled in posts, members, etc when the kickstarter came around as well as me just having a general interest in the numbers. 

    So, I update the charts daily - with member orgs who have fallen off the top ten staying on there for up to seven days just in case they come back to the top.

    Anyway, without rambling on too much longer. 
    Have my charts. 
    But stop asking for access, please, you won't get it, I'm just trying to provide consolidated data in a point for my own and others interest. 

    The iframe isn't working currently, though I will post updates daily with images till I work it out, it may just be incompatible, I'm unsure.

    Live chart can be found here
    Edit**: Fixed some colouring issues.

    Shadow Corporation: 
    Welcome Shadow Corporation. We are private contractor company that provides quality service that is fast, reliable, and trustworthy. Our goal is to fulfill a custom's expectations, needs, and wants while still providing service as cheap as possible. Additionally, the corporation has its own product line of ships, and building designs and offers a variety of training. If you wish to learn more then read on and if you have any questions or are interested in joining then please contact me.
    Colors: Black and Red
    Language: English
    Communication: Discord (Others may open up in the future)
    What kind of contracts will we accept? The answer to that is practically anything. You require a ship build? We have that covered. Need a mining operation set up? We can do that. Maybe its something a little more sensitive, like spying on someone or tracking down a person of interest. We can most defiantly handle that. If you need it done than we most likely can get it done. 
    Now you might be asking, why would I chose Shadow Corporation when I can just do it myself? Well that's easy, we are here to save you both time, and money while providing a service that is top of the line. Instead of doing it yourself and having to spend your precious time doing something why not just have us do it and then you have more time to do other things. Thus meaning double the productivity. 
    But why Shadow Corporation and not the competition? First off, we are not going to rip you off. Gaining boat loads of money is not the goal. The goal is to provide you with the best price possible and to give options, like providing materials in order to further reduce cost on your side. Secondly, Shadow Corporation will ensure that all your expectations, and desires are meet or are above and beyond. We will ensure detail in everything and will inspect all work done before presenting it to the customer. if we miss something then we will fix it at no additional cost. We strive to provide the best customer service and products around. 
    Product Line:
    We possess a small product line of ship, buildings, and training
    Our mass produced ships are primarily fighter class. Ranging form light, and highly maneuverable, to heavier, and overwhelming firepower. If we don't have what your looking for then we will happily custom build one for you.
    Our building designs range from small houses, to large sky scrapers, to production plants. This product line is present so that we can quickly and easily proved services when the customer doesn't want something unique but purely something that works. These designs help us reduce prices because we have ensured that we only include the necessities while keeping it looking nice. Additionally, we know exactly what materials we require, how much man power we need, and how much time it will take to complete. Thus allowing us to accurately tell the customer what to expect. 
    We provide a variety of trainings. From a beginner class to help teach new players the basics. To more advanced classes, like learning how to program basic AI or learning how to best fly a fighter in a dog fight to gain the best odds of survival. If we happen to not offer training in something that you are interested then let us know and we will happily find someone for you that can tutor you. 
    Many customers might be concerned about the security of both their products and contracts. We understand that many customers expect secretiveness so do not fear. We provide on-site-security, ensure contract information is kept secret, and keep things on a need to know basis.
    Shadow Corporation provides minimal security, free of charge, on all building projects. This is to both protect the project and the employees working. Additionally, if a customer feels that they want more security then that is an option provided. Additionally, depending on the project, we can build items off world and transport it in order to provide both additionally security and secretiveness about the recipient.
    All of our contracts are between the customer and company. We make sure that all information is kept secret in order to protect both the customer and the company form threats.
    Need to know:
    All employees are on a need to know basis regarding any business. This is to both continue to prevent information form spreading and to protect the customer.
    Plans for the Future:
    There are three phases planed for Shadow Corporation. Each phase is based off how many employees the company possess and allows for additionally expansion. These are subject to change/modification.
    Phase One:
    This phase is the begging state of Shadow Corporation. The minimum of the corporation will be an HQ, some outposts, and a small team. Phase one will end when there are enough employees and contracts to need expansion.
    Phase Two:
    This phase is a middle phase and will most likely be the longest phase. This phase will be a time when Shadow Corporation will grow quite a bit and hopefully have good standings with many customers. This phase will be one of growth and refinement.
    Phase Three:
    This phase is the ultimate phase. This is when Shadow Corporation reaches a point where it almost runs itself. There are plenty of employees, contacts, customers, and outposts to properly support everything.
    If you are interested in joining Shadow Corporation then you have two options: Member or Employee.
    If you choose to join as a member then it means that you can not join other organizations (This helps to ensure trustworthiness). Members will be the core of the company and will help keep everything running. Additionally, because they are the core this means they will be the candidates for higher jobs.
    As an employee, you are welcome to be apart of other organizations. However this primarily means you will not have as high of a job. Do not take that in a bad way though as there will be more than enough job options that will fit you just fine. It just means that if your wanting to be a top guy then you wont be able to. 
    If you are wanting to join then message me and we can talk.
    Thank You:
    Thank you for taking the time to read through this description and overview of Shadow Corporation. If you have any questions, or wish to discuss anything then please message me. 
    With eyes on the future,

    Whenever I think of stealth I think of ship technology. So when I saw this post about personal stealth ideas it got me thinking. Yes, there is the situation with names coming up over a player but I want to put out other ideas for espionage. 
    (1) Be able to steal or forge a key card in order to get into a door.
    (2) Like previously stated, by others, have an invisibility suit. (One can be seen at close range but it is good to get past some things) 
    (3) Have a hacking device that can obscure doors, machines, or even people's "radar"
    Apologies if this is not exactly on topic and apologies if this has already been said. I did not read all the comments.

    Shadow_1 got a reaction from Anaximander in Some thoughts on stealth ships..   
    There technically isn't a way to completely remove your heat signature (like it has been previously stated). However, there are ways, even in the vacuum of space to make it more difficult to detect a ship via heat signature. First of all, although space is cold due to it is a vacuum it does not mean heat (radiation from stars) isn't going through space. This fact means that a person who isn't trained in detecting that a specific shape or temperature of a heat signature = a ship.
    Secondly, there is special platting that can (1) leach heat out in a way that it doesn't pop up as a ship as easily and (2) can reflect heat in a way that it makes the ship look cooler. Additionally, due to the fact that the engines are the primary heat exhaust location people could potentially"unlock" a upgraded exhaust manifold in order to keep the engine cooler due to heat evaporatoration.
    Also turning off your engines or generator and only using battery power would almost completely hide you. The downside to this is you can not move and this falls into the lines of what have been said before about balance.
    This is just a couple ideas and ways to reduce (not always completely obscure) your signature. And not offense to you Captain but putting out the argument that because space is "cold" and ships are "hot" you can not hide your signature isnt very well supported. (However I do understand some of your points and agree with a few )

    The effective range idea makes perfect sense. Onto your idea of weapons and shields. I agree that you should not be able to have a visual cloak while still having weapons and shields online. Additionally, if your cloaked then your shields should not be online. Once you decloak then you have to wait a minute for your shields to come online and protect you. Also as for weapons, because they already stated that you will have to lock on to fire let's say that you are unable to lock on while cloaked but as soon as you are fully decloaked you can lock on. Just like you stated ODIN.
    Now there is the matter of unclog king fired and recloaking. My idea, because I feel like you should be able to cloak for as long as you want in a system, is that once you decloak it should have a reset time. Thus allowing you to engage but not be OP.
    Also a stealth ship isn't going to have massive weapons. Maybe some missed bays, torpedos, and a light arangment of weapons

    Advanced navigation could potentially be used to explore new systems and planets. The basic navigation could, in theory, only be able to jump to planets if accurate coordinates are imputed. However, advanced navigation could potentially be able to jump to location without the need to send a probe. It could also be an occupation if you were forced to calculate the distance to a planet + the speed of the ship in warp + the amount of time it takes to come in and out of hyperspace + the amount of leeway given before (1) your just too far away still or (2) you jump into the planet itself. Additionally, one might need to check if debris or asteroids are in the vanity of the exit point.
    As for cartography, it be neat to see a very in depth process. I think that map information should not just be available for everyone. Some people will have very large and in depth maps, whereas other could only know of a few systems. This in turn would (1) create a possible advantage over competition, (2) create a way for explorers to make money, and (3) add to the immersion.
    Also people could purchase sector maps (let's say a galaxy is divided into many sectors) but in order for more information other than just locations of stars and planets one would have to purchase system maps (which could provide information on a set of planet)

    I agree that there are two different types of stealth tech being discussed. However, here is another idea to contemplate. Due to the theory that many visual stealth tech will consume a lot of power. This in turn will cause specific scans to pick up on massive amounts of power being used. Additionally, let's say that modules that reduced your ping on that specific radar do not help reduce anything during this mode of stealth. So when a visual stealth tech is used you can not hide some things where as when it is not in use you are able to hide things but are unable to hide the ship itself.
    Please forgive me if I literally just reworded what you said.

    One thing I haven't seen any topics on is planetary weather or natural disasters. Personally something like this would add a very neat immersion level to the game. You could have actual Seasons were a player would experience a specific type of weather more often than you would at another time (like snow, rain, strong winds, ect.) Additionally, if its primarily a snow or desert planet the dust storms or snow storms could move around on the planet, thus making it (1) difficult to fly, walk, build, ect, (2) physically impossible to land or do anything, and (3) could destroy buildings and other infrastructure if not properly built.
    Natural disasters are also an interesting topic. Having earthquakes or even a sunami (depending on if there is water and how much) Possibly even a hurricane.
    Please note I don't know how adding weather of any kind or in any form would affect the optimization of the game. But at the very least having weather that Impares flying, sight, and walking would be interesting.
