(Solrain Core) Changes in Conflux spawn patterns has begun to raise concerns among pilots. There have been confirmed changes in spawn behaviors in a number of sectors — in some instances, the spawn strength has decreased, but in the majority of cases, pilots have been seeing higher-level Conflux drones appearing.
“This is nothing to worry about,” said Carlo Adiar, Asst. Director of Conflux Studies at TRI Corporation. “We have seen Conflux patterns change periodically and see no particular threat-pattern here.” Continue reading →
Subspace Transceiver Repaired Pilots finally rallied to repair the subspace transceiver in The Narrow Canal, and Solrain pilots are once again happily receiving KTRI broadcasts. There is still no word on how the transceiver was damaged in the first place.
Octs Debate DSS History The Octavius Emperors from Ares Prime and Martius seem to be having a dispute about the historical fragment recently found on a DSS. What is being lost in the whole “whose sword is bigger” debate is the fact that this thing might be one of the oldest pieces of history we have found to-date and may even hint at our roots.

Yes, I’m late this week. It has been a slow news week and I was HOPING something interesting would happen. But alas …
Dorator Signs DSS Agreement with Hyperial In the not-at-all-surprising category, Dorator Tecnologies R&D signed an agreement with Hyperial late last week, where Dorator will be receiving all DSS and UCs sold by pilots to Hyperial station. Dorator calls it a win-win since Hyperial was not using the artifacts for anything and Dorator will get them for a very attractive price.
Engineers Quietly Leave Amananth With absolutely no fanfare (and by this I mean they sneaked out), the multi-corporate team that had been working at Amananth to help figure out how to repair the Antiflux CP, has disbanded and been transported back to their respective home spaces. TRI Corporation officials insist that this does not mean they are giving up. They simply felt that it was not necessary to be on-site at this point — an felt the team needed to refresh and reboot.

Engineers Report “No Answers” on Antiflux Factory Well we finally received a report from the Multi-corporate Engineering Team at Amananth — and the news was not awesome. While the fact that the engineers are still puzzled after trying a couple of different approaches is a bit concerning, the other part of the report was an absolute BOMB: “. . . The explosions on Amananth station apparently destroyed all of the backup data on the Antiflux systems and hardware, and DPDQ does not seem willing or able to reproduce it. . . .”
So that means, if we can’t figure out a way to fix this — no more Antiflux! Do you think MAYBE we need to throw some more resources at this problem?
Dorator shares a “Freebie” We’ve known for a while now that Dorator was going into the DSS business. Over the last 10 days they’ve kicked things off with two DSS purchasing events, and then just a day after the second event, they publicly released the first dataset. Continue reading →
(Amananth) The multi-corporate engineering team that has been at work on the problem of repairing the Antiflux Custom Producer in Amananth for more than two weeks, has released a much-anticipated update on their effort.
“Initially we focused on the data architectures because that’s what DPDQ (the Amananth AI system) had been doing – trying to correct the CPs own diagnostics system. If we could have repaired that, the CPs nanos could have completed the repairs with the aid of directed repair beams,” said Chaiss Rivers, one of the team members from Lexxor Intelligence. “Unfortunately, we were unable to make any progress on that front. So we decided to look directly at the repair system hardware. So far, we have been unable get it activated at all – can’t even communicate with it.
“The biggest problem,” continued Rivers, “is that this was a very well-executed sabotage. The explosions on Amananth station apparently destroyed all of the backup data on the Antiflux systems and hardware, and DPDQ does not seem willing or able to reproduce it. But we haven’t given up yet”
Antiflux Factory Still Down The multi-corporate team that was ferried to Amananth with much fanfare has yet to produce any solid results. The Antiflux factory is still damaged and non-operational, and there has been no word on any progress – of lack thereof – from the team.
Pilots Rally for Mission Pilots wasted no time in completing the recent Amananth Faction Mission. It was done in two days! The mission, while sponsored by Amananth, was actually initiated by the corporate consortium working on the damaged Antiflux CP. The mission to scan the anomaly in Amananth sector was created because pilots saw a ship very much like a TRI Enforcer (though apparently now owned by TRI) jump through this anomaly.

(Amananth) The team of eight engineers who were assembled to try to help figure out how to diagnose and fix the repair systems on the Antiflux Customer Producer , arrived safely at Amananth Station. Seven of the eight had to make the trip in cryo-stasis chambers since they were not jump-capable. Six pilots volunteered to provide flux-cover and escort throughout the journey: Flowbar2, Hammer-BS, hifly, JokeR_GdI, Nafcon and Valmagier.
The trip did not go without incident. Tmolus Shaen, the one jump-capable team member, piloted the mission tow which launched from Wake exactly at 21:30. The trip to Amananth was smooth — at least until they reached Amananth. There they found that a very strong swarm had jumped into the sector from Aman Leap. A few of the escorts jumped in to try to battle the swarm, but they were badly outgunned an outnumbered. Continue reading →
