Missions

From Stardrift Empires Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Missions are special battles against computer-controlled enemy mercenary fleets you can do at any time to help gather resources for your empire. They're very similar to combat. They are a certain distance away from you, just like an enemy planet. They require you to send a fleet, just like a raid. And you get half of the enemy's resources if you win, just like in combat. Unlike player-vs-player combat, you cannot lose ships that are on a mission (and therefore missions have a 100% success rate.) Missions are always available and ship destroyed points are never earned from them.

Using Missions

To run a mission, simply decide which mission you want to run and click Start button for that mission.

Requirements

Unlike battles, which require only that you have a ship capable of reaching the target planet, missions often have certain requirements before you will be able to attempt them. Some require you to have certain ships or technologies, others might require your empire to have an overall crew size.

Payouts

The payout for each mission is listed in its description. The exact amount is somewhat random, so you will receive different resources when repeating the same missions.

Expedition Missions

Expedition missions are special missions that can only be run once each per day and are made available at ≈10:20:00, server time. Expedition missions have a much higher payout than regular missions, but generally take much longer to run. You will need to research Expedition Tech to unlock these missions. The payout received is somewhat random, so you will receive slightly different resources when repeating the same missions.

Mission List

The "Resource Gain per Second" column allows you to judge which mission to choose when you are trying to obtain a particular resource.

Of course the number displayed is the ideal where the mission starts immediately after the previous mission ends. Since this ideal state can only be obtained with a illegal bot of some kind, you must judge how often you can, or are willing to, click the mission start button. If you are not constantly monitoring the mission screen to immediately start a mission again, then a mission with a longer duration and a lower resource per second payout may be more advantageous than a shorter mission with a higher resource per second payout with long intervals between missions.
