Venal Alliance sees the early benefits of Jovian trade.

As of today the owner-captains of the Venal alliance and member corporations of Venal space are proud to announce the successful field testing of advanced technology devices acquired through progressive Jovian trade with agents of the A821-A Modifier caste commerce guild.

Integration of Jovian technological devices to empire standard module fittings first occurred over one standard week ago, and field trials have since demonstrated massive improvements in yield and efficiency over non-Jovian counterpart tech. More startling yet, is the potential for rapid cross-technological improvements founded on Jovian design paradigms, and currently Venal research laboratories are working at full capacity to explore the potential for massive ancillary applications of core research discovery.

Today I can reveal the first proven practical application of this technology fusion;

The Nibelung mining beam.

Many times more efficient than the CU Vapour drill, the Nibelung is capable of rapidly stripping away the dross material of a target asteroid to reveal and convert rare ore to transportable form in a fraction of the time taken by existing beam technology. Field trials routinely recorded an acquisition rate in excess of 200 ore units a minute base, with high yield multi-turret platforms topping 6720 units of Bistot an hour.

The implications to Venal from this simple but astonishingly effective application of Jovian technology are manifest and vital; first the yield of mining operations conducted by TTI industrial teams will rise, driving down the build costs of warships, and allowing an ever more timely system of production and deployment for high value capital vessels destined for regional defence. Venal member corporations and owner captains will benefit from cheaper regional construction and the entire economy of the Venal Region will be boosted by the massive increase in heavy production and spaceyard output.

The secondary implications are more important yet; for with the initiation of trade links to the Jovian commerce guilds the Venal region will become a leader in the field of technological innovation and splintertech deployment, and free from the constraints of Concord interference and governmental acquisition, the Venal Alliance will employ the fruits of knowledge to light the fire of freedom and independence on the far frontier of settled space.

Field tests have already begun on military spin-offs from Jovian technological acquisition, and the first prototype vessels will see active service in the Venal Alliance defence fleet in the near future. As this technology becomes common in the Venal Alliance, it is the later intention of TTI to license the use and sale of these devices and ships beyond the borders of Venal territory to secure alliances without, and to award the friendship of comrades-at-arms in the wider galactic sphere of commerce.

For Venal the future is bright!

indeed, tech level 2 being introduced to people and corps through gm events are legit, tech level 5 obviously, are not.

If this is true, it's seriously f*cked up. Though it could easily be a beta screenshot.

I would like to thank the involved parties for the peek into the future. It was a rare gift and has made me wonder about what other things may come to pass.

There is nothing in that story that indicates a GM gave it to Taggart. It sounds like they got it from a third party that came to Taggart because they know who has the big bucks in the game.

It is the same reason the finest Alaskan salmon can be bought the next day in New York City (4000 miles away from Alaska) - because that is where the market is.

I think this is a load of bullcrap but, if not, it's hardly fair that tech level 5 item is introduced so early...and so suspiciously.

"There is nothing in that story that indicates a GM gave it to Taggart."

Well, aside from one of the developers being mentioned as "Jove representative" responsible for the whole deal, in the full version of the story ;s

Hardly means anything, though... i mean, i can make a press release about how i acquired level 8 technology from mysterious mr.Photoshop of unknown origins... :s

If it IS a joke, then it isn't funny.

It causes doubt and suspicion against the GM's.

It's not good when you cant even trust the people s'posed to be moderating the game.

If it is doctored, it is an amazing job. Look how the lasers from that one battleship are going through the transparent background of the info box.

Taggart, seriously, you been around since beta.

If you find a tech lvl 5 item now, HOW COME you do not report this to GM's and devs?

Seriously.

Ban the lot.

"If it is doctored, it is an amazing job. Look how the lasers from that one battleship are going through the transparent background of the info box."

Not really; you simply take the screenshot of typical mining and edit the stats in the info box in accordance with data which is already available. This is something that can be done quickly and easily. =)

Edit: Mr.Necrona, this is hardly about the "jelously"... it's more about finding somewhat plausible explanation (made up RP event) which would be better for the game than suddenly having _any_ corporation use and sell lvl.5 stuff in bulk, practically making the introduction of mining lasers of lvl.2-4 pointless.... *shrugs*

Its real,

I saw it in a trade window.

I heard that the person logged on and it was there instead of a basic miner.

Now, why didn't u keep it secret? Rolling Eyes
