Spoiler (Perhaps): Problem with buying systems?
« on: September 08, 2008, 09:33:11 am »
Have any of you purchased a system in the Space game yet?  I blew 1 million credits buying a system with a T2 Planet and some good spice with a planet full of another race.  When I purchased the system, I went to look at my new colonies and start reaping the harvest of my planet....

...but I found a desolate T0 world, no colonies, and only the spice geysers.  Is this a bug or has anyone else purchased a system only to have it turn into a bland system needing to be redeveloped?

Maybe you purchased a different system by accident or something had happened to the system before you got it?

That's a possibility.  But if another empire took over the system, wouldn't I be unable to buy it under the new ownership?

Ah well.  I don't know.  I'll try again later on (at work now).

didn't know you could purchase a system without doing extensive trade with the race inhabiting it.

Why would anyone sell you a system they don't own? And if they could, why can't you?

To me it sounds like a bug, but I haven't gotten far enough to actually be able to afford a system. My missions tend to either send me into hostile teritory or to systems to far away for my ship to reach.

Long story short, I started a trade route with this system on that mission that asks you to interact with aliens.  Time passed and the system was available for purchase. I talked to the race, offer a mil, and they accepted.  I went to gather my spice and found a barren system. 

But maybe I'm retarded.  I'll buy another system when I have time and see what happens.
