Corporation ‘Ellydium’ has achieved remarkable success in the study of Aliens. Now they are starting an ambitious new project to develop a weapon based on technology of so-called Crystallids. To complete the prototypes they need field data. UMC has received new contracts from the ‘Broker’. Pilots will receive unique weaponry created with Crystallid tech for completing special tasks! Pilots will also learn many secrets of Aliens, previously hidden in the secret archives of the Empire, Federation, and Jericho.
Alien Tech: Special Ammunition
Not so long ago corporation ‘Ellydium’ made a breakthrough in the study of so-called ‘live crystals’ that Aliens are using to grow… create almost all of their designs. This is an extremely valuable material and participation in ‘Ellydium’ project will give you the opportunity to create more complex devices based on it. In the meantime, use the ‘live crystals’ to create resonating ammunition.
Pilots need to manufacture one of the types of resonating ammunition in the Workshop.
Special ammunition from Ellydium corporation developed with data obtained from Crystallid tech research.
Increases damage to Alien ships by 100%
Increases damage to other ships by 3%
Alien Tech: Weapon system research
The organization ‘Ellydium’ is known for its interest in Alien tech. The first practical result of this interest is resonant ammunition that’s very effective against the Aliens. But to jump from ‘inventing gunpowder’ to building a machine gun, my employer requires statistical data on the use of resonant weapons on heavy weapon platforms.
Eliminate 3 enemy ships in PvP using destroyer weapons equipped with resonating ammunition
Destroyer weapon selection depends on the day:
Day 1. You need to use Meson Cannon
Day 2. You need to use Coilgun
Day 3. You need to use ‘Halo’ launcher
Alien Tech: Weapon platform upgrade
‘Ellydium’ corporation — is interested in science. And weapons. One of the corporation’s latest projects is dedicated to unification of human and Alien technology. For this reason, we need not only statistical data on the use of Alien tech, but also the data on our own technology.
Eliminate 4 destroyers in PvP
Ellydium research progress
Ellydium corporation divided its research of Crystallid technology into stages. All Broker missions are directly related to research of the current Ellydium project. You can estimate its status with the special project progress-bar, shown to all pilots in the hangar.
Pilots see current project name in the hangar
Pilots can see the active project’s number in the hangar
Active project research status can be estimated with the help of a progress bar around the icon
When the bar is full, project completion is imminent, along with rewards for all participants
Improved display of missions divided into smaller tasks
You can now see current task progress
Improved weapon positioning on several ships
Several AI-controlled ships in PvE missions now have unguided missiles
