TextSpaced: An infinite and shared text-based universe.

Missions

The missions within TextSpaced are generated specifically for you based on your ship, its capabilities, your skills and what is around you. This means whenever you open the missions window you will have missions to complete. As well as being assigned specifically for you they are also assigned based on the ship role of the ship you are commanding. This means you can change ship depending on what type of missions you prefer, when in a mining role ship your missions will be biased towards mining tasks, when in a recon role ship they will be centred around exploration and charting.

you will have missions to complete

Missions assigned to you appear in the assigned section of the missions window and will automatically expire and be replaced with a different mission after 24 hours without penalty. You can also choose to reject missions assigned to you at a cost proportional to the mission reward. If you wish to perform a mission you can accept the mission by entering its details and paying its deposit, at which point it will move to your active missions lists and will have an expiry of around 14 days. If you do not complete the mission before it expires you will lose your deposit, your factors will change and karma will reduce with the issuing faction.

Missions themselves are issued by structures from any faction near to you that you are not at war with, including your own, and that have no barred missions. Completing a mission will provide the described reward which is usually credits and will often provide a change to your factors resulting in a skill point earned. It will also improve karma relations between your faction and the issuing faction. Most missions also have an intrinsic benefit for the issuing faction as well, such as the faction receiving the goods you supply.

Colony Requests

If your faction has a colony structure, such as a settlement or a town, you will sometimes also receive colony requests. These requests work just like missions apart from anyone in the faction can contribute to them and they can be partially completed like some other missions. If a colony request is completed it will provide the special reward listed, such as a population boom. Most requests have no negative effect if not completed other than not providing the stated reward, however some requests, like helping to stop a virus spreading, will have ongoing negative effects and compounded negative effects if not complete.
