Welcome to Epic Space: OnlineEdit
Epic Space is a unique mmo in the sense that the universe you're placed is INFINITE. So it's easy to get overwhelmed about what to do.
The very first thing you should do -- GO SCANNINGEdit
Drop what you're doing. Don't doc. Fly around and point your ship at a planet, nebula, or asteroid belt and hit the SCAN button on the lower right of the hud. Just above the server clock.
Scanning Enables you to:
- Find quick and sometimes valuable loot now
- Make money a little faster(Sell to other players or stations)
- Raise your HT Level
How to Scan:
- Fly near an Asteroid, Planet or Nebula
- Point your ship towards it (Don't get too close)
- Hit the scan button
- If your scanner yields no results, MOVE ON. Continuing the scan is fruitless. Besides there are millions of other objects to scan.
- Watch your Fuel, don't fly too far without picking some up
- Don't forget to Discover objects. You get $20 for each celestial object discovered, and $100 for completing an entire sector.
