Zero tech NPC
« on: February 07, 2014, 01:42:39 PM »
Matt and BFG, couple of question in regards to the zero tech NPC`s that spawn..

1.. Why do they spawn like this ?

2 Why don`t they spawn throughout the rank range?

Because we use a bell curve for the techs, and 0 is an option.[/quote]

They do.

Not that i have seen or anyone else has seen, we have only seen these at the very top level.......... and that is not from lack of looking either...

If they spawn at lower levels, they won't be massive. ;) Therefore, those tend to be under reported.

The first time i spotted a zero tech NPC was when i moved out to gal 25..... prior to that i had never seen any in any of the other galaxies i am in or have been in....

I maintain active scans in my current galaxies and as yet i`m still yet to see zero tech npc spawn in gal 13 where my other planets are..

Other players have stated they have never seen one either in the galaxies that they are in... so you begin to ask why not?

By the way this isn`t a grumble to get easier NPC, its more to do with fairness across the board and not just for the top ranked player/s.....

So i`ll put this out to other players.......
Have you seen any zero tech NPC outside of gal 25?

Yes, some of the smallest ships sometimes are zero tech.

atm we are seeing 300-500m+ dsp zero tech npc in gal 25


you say they spawn proportionately in other galaxies...

Really?

i have scanned every npc that has spawned in gal 13 since i made this thread and i am still yet to see a proportional sized zero tech NPC relative to me or several top 100 ranked players spawn ..

i see the bottom end zero tech meant for the newbs...

so i say you are wrong Matt... NPC zero tech of a proportional size to other players are not spawning in other galaxies.

Well Matt......


a update on this thread...since my last post...no zero tech spawns have been spawned from larger players in other galaxies...


and now we have witnessed that they only spawn from the number 1 rank player as there have been no new spawns since he moved into a different galaxy.... and that suggests that they are tied to the number 1 rank.

Gal 25 has just about every other high ranked player in it..so its not a rsp issue


SO AGAIN I HAVE TO ASK WHERE IS THE EQUALITY?
