Updated Planetary Interaction

Looks like a new build was deployed to Sisi, and with it came some updates to PI, including...

New graphics for planet-type-specific Command Centers:

...and planet-specific extractors:


...and Storage Facilities:

(The new launcher is the same as the cube-shaped extractor above for now)

Looks like surveying for resources and most of the functionality previously there in the last build in terms of creating a supply chain is broken, but I dig the new graphics... Call me easy to please.

Fly Safe!


  1. The new graphics look 100% better than the little markers! As far as you can tell nothing else has been changed?

    Will have to load up SISI again and check out the changes since PI was released.

  2. Now if only someone would tell me where the hell the container is when I launch from the command centre? I've scanned ,looked on overview... can never find the damned thing.

  3. Well, they look nice, it's true. I was never able to get the surveying thing to work. I would just plunk down extractors and see if they could find anything. Kind of a time consuming mess, but nothing else seemed to work.

  4. Thanks for posting this. Starting to look mighty hawt.

  5. Now if they could just do something with the age-old suggestion thread of making POS structures actually look like something, and not a "Sanford & Son" junkyard in space. But yea, the planetary stuff looks interesting. I just hope it doesn't turn into some giant perk for the 0.0 guys.

  6. Cans launched into space can be found in the Journal... There will be a Book Mark in there you can warp to
