Hyacinth Partners Ltd.

Recommended Posts

Hyacinth Partners Ltd. is the org for the flight and ground crew of the Hyacinth - a medium hauler tramp spacer. We aren't planning to take over the galaxy or build a city in space... but we may provide the logistic support for those activities... for a price.


Full flight crew complement is

  • Pilot
  • Navigator/Radar operator
  • Engineer
  • 3 gunners
  • 2 stewards or 2 mission specialists

(Yes the ship has bunks for all those people)


Business focus:

  • Transport and Logistics
  • Trading
  • Deep Space Salvage ops
  • Special Courier Services.


Auxiliary activities

  • Mining
  • Security
  • Combat


Currently recruiting


Navigator/Radar Op Still working on what this job will be exactly. I expect to have software to improve navigation, plus a radar system for tracking and flagging hostiles for the pilot's combat display. (System design is WIP). Will be trained to pilot as well.


Flight Engineer. Monitors Engine performance, fuel, and damage during flight. Fixes damage as needed. Advises pilot on best engine performance.


Gunners. (3 positions) Protect the ship from hostiles. We will begin combat training in A3.  


Stewards (2 position) Takes care of any passengers. This includes providing whatever they need in during the fight, but also controlling them. (Steward is a polite word for marine. After release, this job may include combat and we will train for it when AvA combat comes in game)


Mission Specialist (several positions) Conducts non-flight mission activities. We will need miners and eventually EVA salvage. A courier might be a mission specialist for special courier services.


Sales Rep (several position) Based on a planet and usually embedded with a nation-type org, reps will handle sales, provide fulfillment and collect payment especially when the Hyacinth is off planet.


Miners (several positions). Gather resources for transport and sale for times when we don't have other contracts. Miners may double as mission specialists


And most importantly.... Customers! While our customers will not generally be members of the org, they are highly valued and welcome at our in-game facilities and on our discord server...


Speaking of which... find us on discord at https://discord.gg/Tgp4TZY

I have question.


6-7 or even more people looks like relativly large crew, and as I understand, all of then can expect some kind of compensation for their time and effort in form of salary or cut of profit. It will make you services pretty expensive. This means it will be targeted more for larger orgs, not individuals?


Because even if I (lets assume it) wanted as solo player hire such team and ship for some mission, I'm not seeing it any way affordable.


Or I missing something?

It's hard to know at this point what will be necessary and what things will cost. If I'm carrying gunners and marines, it will be because they're necessary and whoever you hire will also need them... and you'll have to pay for them. If they aren't necessary for a mission, they won't be on the crew. If I'm carrying miners, it's because the profit is going to come from selling the product of mining - this will only happen if the price brings in enough to support the miners.


As a solo player, you will be able to afford some of my services and you won't be able to afford others. In some cases, the benefit you get may be that materials from other planets will be available on the market because Hyacinth brough them.
