Beta is not the place to kill for fun. It is designed and put up for the use of "testing" the new ships and equipment. I fully agree with over half of you in this thread. Which is why I had already submitted a "beta test map" with all 3 facs, Shipyards, and Defences up and running and a "test moon" to test equipment on. Alas, I submitted it to the release side, for I didn't find the submit button for the map on this side. Happy hunting.

Some general pointers for etiquette on the beta.
Building SY and getting ships requires resources so :
- Dont attack engineers,
- Dont attack extractors,
- Dont corner the only source of rare resources, make them mining planets to speed resource production, dont make them difficult cap, and transport off the resource you need.
- Dont bomb mining planets,
If you are short of resources tell the 'other side' (#1) and conversly If the other side is short of a key resource your faction will need to surrender a planet with that resource. So make it easy.
(#1) On the beta you should consider everybody on the same side, the side that is trying to make darkspace a great game for everybody, even those people playing another faction. And this is the entire point of the beta.
And its good to say it seems to be coming along fine.

Anyone testing Beta is required to read the beta testing guide before proceeding. Thnx for the list Wyke, fits in nicely.
