ok thx, it will do. I already got 8 K from alpha centauri (exotic) and I felt rich Smiley

some other questions:

can the music be toned down without suppressing it. I like it, but the volume is far too loud.

I have problem with save&reload. I feel like cheating to do so. I dont do that often but sometimes it happen. Do you save&reload yourselves?

My aim is not to get a cheat code to have a load of starting money. I understand very well that the fun is coming from exploration.

I'm asking of generalities, let me remake my sentences:

Should I spend tons of hours ingame to harvest all minerals from nearby solar systems (perhaps even in an exhaustive way), or should I seek only the richest ones? Real life speaking I wont be able to redo the game, so I would like to finish it in the first try. It seems that the game halt in 2160, so I cant afford to head in the wrong way.

is mouse supported?

how to make money fast? Should I seek the hottest stars, or will some missions  will give me much money?

What is the point of stunning passive life forms ?

Can I assume that gas giants by themselves are never landable?

Thank you guy, I found Fwiffo on Pluto. How funny was he! I now remember why I really got hooked with the game, some years ago. 'Ultimate Evil' made me roll on the floor Smiley Smiley

I have made the lunar and mercury mission, but now the starbase commander tell me:

"our deep space team has detected a faint signal coming from Uranus or somewhere from this general direction. The signal is definitively comming from the solar system."

So I went to Uranus, looked blankly at his gaseous surface, then back to the commander which seems stalled and keep repeating the same sentence. Any idea?

Also, while you are here (and I thank you all):
does the game really end in 2160? Must I hurry?
Does the game is finishable, or the release is incomplete as of now.

Just for info, I played the original one (and SC 1). I'm old you see Smiley

Hi there,

I'm unable to land on Uranus. This is sad as I understand that this is the first mission given by the earthling starbase. Can somebody tell me if it is a bug, or there is something to do in-game?
