Even if you could only offer 1 Aurora for the Logistics effort, it would still be helpful. No effort is too small!

It will be interesting to see if we can construct supply dumps, or even space stations in orbit. Still, it probably would not be a bad thing if organizations created Rear Echelon Fuel, Supply, and Ammunition Dumps (REFSADs). Vega, Centauri, and Croshaw all look like good places for safe dumps. Nul and Garron, being a jump away from the Vanduul, would be a place for the brave to establish FOBs.

Absolutely agree.
While I am only a Lone Wolf, I will have a hangar in Crosshawk and Garron (as a Lone Wolf, I am not comfortable with a base in Nul) and start stockpiling stuff there from the start of beta.

Wait, haven't they said that there will be multiple wipes over the course of the beta? I wonder how much time between the final wipe and the end of the beta CIG will give us.....that will also impact how much time we have to develop Nul.

Yes, I expect there to be some wipes (and a lot more roll-backs) through the beta, but we will never know when the _last_ wipe has been made (I expect the wipes to be made to fix stuff in the PU that went horribly wrong and you donĀ“t know when such a thing will happen in advance), so I will start stockpiling from day 1, just to be on the save side :)

I'm gonna need someone to craft another Logistics thread and take over managing the first post updates and Google doc. danibo160 was making a good effort of it, but he's just got too much on his plate in real life right now. So I'm looking for another volunteer to take over. This thread will be archived and closed.

Had an idea about bring supplies it, at least initially. For the main push what could happen is all the ships that can carry cargo (Aurora's, Freelancers, Connies, ect) could lug in cargo modules for the first wave. They would then drop their cargo at a set staging area for sector resupply where the repair ships would be waiting for ammo and refueling duties. The resupply ships would come in fully loaded and once their stocks are used up they can recover the cargo modules.

Could def work. The only issues I see in creating what is essentially a supply dump in space is how long the containers will persist, and how difficult it will be to transfer supplies outside of a station or a planet.

Combat Logistics

Because the Logistics Units are the most important Units (believe or not) for every Army - I decide to take a spartan warrior (BattleMonster) with the pose of Atlas holding up the whole Operation Pitchfork. And since we are going to have a hell of a BBQ the Unit will provide us the Charcoal.



Cheers

Interesting... I was half expecting to see "Providing Essentials" ....

But it's an interesting design.

Damn nabbit, i forgot to close this thread, since danibo160 isn't managing it anymore.

Can I get someone to open a Logistics and Supplies Thread who is willing to manage the first post and the Google sign up document? I'll migrate the comments here to that new thread if I can get someone to volunteer for that.

We actually might want to wait, until we have an idea of how many separate major formations/maneuver units/units of action/whatever we have to support with our logistical assets.

Ok, danibo160. Can you edit the first post to include the Google link, so that people don't have to go looking for it? The first post will also need a little more refinement. But I'm glad to see you're back.

Fuel or Gas planets are way over by the far side of the star map in UEE space by the Xi'An edge of space. At least that is what the map says for now. That is way more then 5 or 6 systems away. So this fuel supply run will not be a cheap run by a starfarer. This war is like exploration you need to pay or build up supplies to do it. Its not going to be free, this is a economy game.

Supply areas if unable to drop cargo modules in space and they stay floating for a long periods of time. Then we may need to establish the far out skirts planets to be a supply & repair base of operations. Once we take over some other Vanduul planets closer. Then setup supply, repair areas & drop points. Then OPPF supply & repair operations could slowly move the operations closer by planet hopping closer to the front, behind the battlefronts.

Hello everyone,

I know of a Japanese corporation that specializes in transportation, I think they would be a great addition to the corp.  They would be able to get their name out, which would help them be profitable in the long run and we would get more haulers. 

But since they are not native English speakers, I was hoping to find someone that could give me an assist.  They probably could use someone who knows both English and Japanese well, some speak english well... others not so much.  But most importantly it would go a long way in diplomacy that someone cared enough to speak to them in their own language.

I also hope to get in contact with a few other hauler leaders... it they have other haulers to talk to it would go a long way to making them feel not like outsiders. 

I am going to talk with them a week from the time of this post about it, and I am hoping to see what I can get from the crowd to increase the success rate.

I've been on the edge of my seat waiting to find out about how the economy functions for a while now. I really think that's going to make or break our logistics corps when we find out.

I think a standard pitchfork markup should be agreed on for all pilots.

Cost + 10% for suppliers
Quartermasters should only be making 2% since they are trading the volume of all the goods per carrier etc.
Cost would be the cost of fuel to the fleet from starting location + Cost of goods.
War profiteering and gouging kind of defeats the purpose of this operation IMHO.

It is confirmed that if your are online you can hire an NPC to run cargo(Maby more.) independently. So yes you can sit in a bar while shipping supplies to an OPPF Base or FOB. This simplifies and speeds up logistics by needing less human manpower in exchange for credits.
