Office of John Slice, CEO, Apricot Mapping Service
Ah, pilot, come in, sit down.
I have all your scores here in front of me, and I was at a loss what to
do with you. You are an average pilot, useless marksman, overuse the
auto pilot, tend to damage ships for no particular reason, useless
mechanic, should I go on ? Hmmmm, no.
The question was what to do with you.
Well, that answer came this morning on my way to work. Your going to
clean this universe up !
No, wipe that smirk off your face, it doesnt mean your going to be
sheriff. I mean your going to be a janitor to the whole universe and
clean up all the debris, derelict ships, containers and whatnot that
are left lying around all over the place.
I'm sick to death of having all this debris cluttering up the space
ways and making coming to work a hazard instead of a joy. Your going to
clean it up for me !
We've outfitted a Disco for you with some pretty nifty software.
Your ship will be updated with the locations of all known derelict
ships, and a new command has been added to take you right there so you
can salvage the ship. Its up to you what you do with them, but get them
off the space lanes !
You have also been given software to help you claim without leaving
your ship, up to a distance of 5km.
Also, you have been entrusted with the software to automate a ship into
clearing the debris in the asteroid fields. And the new advance in HQ
software that allows stations to be set up within the HQ instead of
Ok pilot, you have a lot of work to do, get out there and do it !

Task 1 : Collect Derelict Ships
The X universe is a very dangerous place. But one of its oddities is
that only ships being fired apon by the player will be abandonned by
their pilot. This just isnt real. In reality, all sorts of reasons
would have all sorts of pilots abandonning ship on a constant basis. So
with this in mind, .....
Every time the game is started, 12 derelict ships will be created in
random locations with random damage and fittings. This can be altered
by either copying the main setup script in the script editor a few more
times to get more, or deleting a few to get less - 1 ship per script.
A new command is on the Nav menu to jump your ship to a random derelict
ship. Apricot Mapping Service makes no warranty about soiled underwear
should you find yourself in a sea of red dots all of a sudden. The
command is rinky dink, and does not check for the existance of a
jumpdrive or enough ecells. If you dont have them, you dont go
anywhere, simple as that. Where you go, is entirely random ! What you
do when you get there is your problem.
Task 2 : Asteroid Debris Clearing.
Since 1.4, the universe has been filled with debris that makes flying
around sectors dangerous.
So your job is to assign ships to clear the debris and sell it or
Task 3 : Container Clearing.
There is garbage being dropped all over the universe by careless
ships that manage to get themselves destroyed through sheer stupidity.
Make sure it all gets collected up and disposed of efficiently.
