Public Notice About Engineer

This is a notice to all the good Engineers in the Keen NA #1 Server regarding a Terroristic Drifter by the name: Flight1700

In the past I have heard negative rumors about this particular person and took it with a grain of salt. There are many people who have personal vendettas against specific users for one purpose or another, and I simply attributed these rumors about Flight1700 to actions due to various past events they were involved in.

Before these below described events I would say my relationship with Flight1700 was somewhere between 50/100 to 80/100. I helped him find users who he claimed had wronged him, he provided me with materials for a jump drive, we had social gatherings at the “Mecs” station by the moon. Everything seemed normal.

On July 10th 2021 I ( Gov. Herman Toothrot ) had invited Flight1700 to participate in an Organized PVP event.  He was bragging about how he wins so many fights, how he likes battles, etc. I figured he would want to participate. He disregarded the request and instead became belligerent.

On July 11th 2021 I had a Service and Maintenance ship nearby while I was outside working on a community bulletin board satellite. A caution beacon was activated to let other players in the area know I was there and that the ship was armed so they wouldn’t get hurt trying to investigate.

I was currently in other programs with the game running in the background, designing LCD screen artwork, and when I had returned to the game my ship was being attack by the battleship owned by Flight1700.

The maintenance ship was disabled relatively quickly, as it was simply a glass box on a conveyor junction frame and not intended for actual battle.

Let this be a notice to all the good Engineers in the Server that this users claims of “massive wins” and “great battles” consist of attacking maintenance and service ships, ships where the user is not in the cockpit, afk, or offline. He has no respect for the sanctity of organized combat, and when invited to organized PVP events, he is quick to either make excuses as to why he can’t participate, or ignores the request all together.

There is a reason why combat athletes in events such as “Martial Arts”, “Boxing” and even entertainment “Wrestling” gain great respect and praise…  while the average thug on the street gets nothing but distain and disrespect from society.

Moon Societies mission is to help new players and the ship that was lost was an important asset to that mission. It has supplied several thousands of units of materials to help new players get started on the server and the loss of this ship means that our ability to provide service has been hindered.

A declaration has been made throughout the server that Flight1700 is to be stripped of all respect and honor. Deserving no communication other than taunts, insults, and mockery, and for the safety of the good Engineers in the system, he is to be found and dismantled upon discovery. For his lack of respect of organized combat, and his choice to choose ambushes of service vehicles over consensual battles, all ethical  restraints are lifted when dealing with him.

The Black Hole Event

Moon Society is hosting a new event called “The Black Hole

Details:

How to Enter:

Contact: Gov. Herman Toothrot

What is it?:

“The Black Hole” is an event where two opponents battle each other to the death.

What happens to the loser?:

The loser deletes all grids they own, including alt accounts..  everything is lost, the black hole takes all!..  they change their name, are a totally new character, new reputation, new “person”..  ALL past transgressions are forgiven..  Or..  they delete all their grids and leave the server forever.

What happens to the winner?:

The winner continues as normal.

Is there a prize?:

The event is commemorated with a graphic we post about the details of the event. That is all.

Will it be recorded?:

Sure, if someone records it.

Additional Details:

Opponents will not be officially informed of who they are facing.

Combat ship PCU limit is 20,000 PCU.

Repair Welders are not allowed.

Ships are inspected before the event to verify PCU.

Winner is declared after players death, surrender, or retreat.

There must be a winner and loser.

Once a person submits to the event, they can not revoke their request.

Failure to participate once a person has agreed to participate is disqualification, which is a loss.

In the event that someone interferes with the event, the interfering person has decided to be a participant of “The Black Hole” and has not followed the rules of conduct..  and is therefore disqualified.. This is a loss, and they must follow the rules of loss accordingly. The other participants may retreat and their battle rescheduled as soon as they are able to.

It is requested that the participants of the event have an extra seat available for a witness to sit in and do a screen recording.  If this interferes with design it is requested that they do a screen recording themselves so that we can put together a side by side video of the fight showing it from both participants ships.

In the case that a participant uses a borrowed ship for the battle, and loses. The borrowed ship must also be deleted.

Participating ships must not have Survival Kits or other Respawn locations.

The loser of the event is expected to delete everything, or give it away, permanently, without the expectations of inhariting it in their next life.

All GPS cords are to be deleted by the losing player, including saved files with GPS lists. (The Black Hole Takes Everything!)

Once a person submits their participation request, they can’t talk about it. (They are supposed to remain an unknown participant until the event happens)

Spectators are welcome.

The Moon Is My Home

Version 6.29.21

Current Happenings:

— Several new members have joined. We look forward to helping bring them up to speed.

— Apparently out “Moon Capitol” has been attacked..  Not very well mind you..  but it seems some blocks have been damaged. From what I can tell nothing of value was lost.

— Icesak has been promoted, and already demoted as a faction leader. He is still a respected member of the Faction but there were some misuses of options that the “Leader” role has that should not have been used.

— I’ve seen that some members have somehow obtained some damaged ships and are repairing them.

— The member “Ominous Boom” has taken on the responsibility as the factions “Uranium Banker”. Try not to get too greedy with your requests..  It is a rare element.

— GPS Coordinates to resources are being added to the forum.

———

Version 6.18.21

Current Happenings:

— The safe zone on the Moon was unable to maintain it’s power requirements and the safezone went down. The base has been destroyed.

— Moon Society has left the faction “APL – Apollo” due to its faction leader being involved in some unsavory practices.

— Moon Society has created its own faction” )O( – Moon Society”

— Admission is automatic but the faction spawning zone is only a small underground base on the moon. Reason for this under developed spawn point is because espionage is a thing with factions and instant new members can’t be trusted with valuable assets.

— Because in game mail boxes do not exist, and faction members may not be on all the time. It is suggested to send messages here and connect with other faction members through this social network.

—————————

Version: 6.14.21

Current Happenings:

— A Safe Zone has been established on the Moon. It is expensive to run, costing roughly 2.7 Million SC a day and uses much hydrogen and solar power. Although hardly used for any official purpose, it is a symbol of our mission of bringing peace to the moon.

— New Moon Residents are entitled to a free utility ship called a “Moon Mouse”. Contact Gov. Herman Toothrot to arrange delivery.

— A Battle/Events area on the Moon is almost complete. It has been said that without War there can be no Peace. Therefore if we must have War on the Moon, we will have a designated spot for it so that the rest of the Moon may have Peace. If you can see the “Battle Events” Beacon, you are within the Event Zone. There will be 2 Broadcasts, one to let people know they are within firing range of the Event Zone, and one to let people know they are within the Event Zone. Please keep battles within the Event Zone so that other Engineers and Ships outside do not get harmed.

— Please to announce new resource helpers from “Erf” have dedicated a supply depot to donate towards Moon Society activities. As well as other new Moon Residents taking interest in mapping asteroids and locating ore deposits.
