.. and we're off again.
I take the last "refuel on earth" orders off the TG orders for both freighter groups, and hit "advance 5 days".
We get an interrupt because the Mariah Carey completed it's order to drop off the civilian admin. It hasn't, actually, completed unloading it's cargo.
Also, there's a message from the Crow - Kai Cooke reached JP 3 without incident and started construction.
Here's part of the current system view. You can see Neutron Rock with the Mariah Carey to the east, the Charon Freighter group heading north, and the gates on JG 1 and 2, as well as the James Cook, still busy with it's survey.
With the admin dropoff, I can now start automating the Mariah Carey a bit - since we want 50 automated mines on there I add the orders to refuel from earth and load up another mine to the still uncompleted order to unload, then tell it to repeat that order another 48 times. I could not do this before - telling it to keep picking up and dropping off the same person over and over isn't going to work very well
Completing the full set of orders will take it 459 days, 16 hours, and 32 minutes.
I suspect that after that Captain Onbekende may require a vacation.
( I may however have to change this order in the future, so that it will start ferrying minerals back to earth as well... )
Also, I tell our NPC admin to officially take up the mantle of civilian administrator for Neutron Rock:
The astute observer will note that while technically the Mariah Carey isn't done unloading yet, the colony overview treats that installation as already available. This means that mining will start immediately.
Something similar happens when you have minority races in your empire. A race that has less than 10% of the total population may start growing restless.
I've never seen full-scale rebellions, though.
