So, today I bought a mining colony, and this is one of the messages that greeted me:
"Certain entities"? That phrase sounds familiar... and interested in ores? I wonder...
Could these dots be connected? Possibly. From Captain BigJohn Troglodyte, I have this:
So far, my colony has produced only credits. But if it ever does for me what is shown here... and I have those ores on hand when the Mysterious Vessel comes... I could just give that entity the ores and not pay to buy them first, right?
In other words, could one of the side benefits to mining colonies, under certain circumstances, be in effect "free" Mysterious Vessel benefits?
Something to think about, and if anyone has more definite information, feel free to let us all know... in fact, please let the rest of us know!
