Multiplayer is hardly close, but anyway I haven't been able to find a decent app for managing guilds, so the best bet would be Discord.

The ship stats closely resemble those of the vanilla game. However, minor changes have been made for balance and variation purposes.

The speed of ships currently has no effect. It is intended that it will impact upon ability to dodge incoming fire and to flee battle.

The distance between stars is calculated from the centre of the sector and outwards. Until I figure out a better algorithm, it'll have to stay like that.

Travel between systems is instant for the time being. As there is too big a gap between the smallest and largest ships mass is not an option, so It will probably be linked to ship speed.

The commodity market is rather pointless at the moment. I will have a serious think about the prices and probably increase them significantly so that the profits are worthwhile.

While not the case at the moment, the stock market will reset each day. Depending upon the extent of player activity, the amount of default stock available may change over time.

Fuel is currently free. The reason for this is due to the foreseen inevitability that players may become stuck in a system with no fuel and thus no way out. Rather than being inundated with tickets, fuel may at this time may be acquired whether or not the current system has any or is inhabited. Making it free prevents people from repeatedly selling it at profit. It will, of course, still contribute to used cargo space. I hope that this will be fixed in due course.

In addition, local stocks of fuel are static, which prevents players from depleting supplies and thus causing the said problem even if it is fixed.
