Artifact Question
« on: November 18, 2015, 08:36:23 AM »
Just started playing and getting my head around it all.

Just a quick questions regarding artifacts. I have a notification saying the Thoraxians have found the ark on their homeworld (which sounds like bad news) and the Peltian have found the Mire.

However I'm just wondering if there is anywhere else in the UI that shows the artifacts outside the initial notification.

Cheers.

Welcome to the Forums :).

The Ark is actually a very good thing - it boosts the respective race significantly and thus their impact on this specific game.
The Mire is opposite,

There is a list of buildings in the planet details (right click a planet) iirc.
If you have tutorials enabled, these infos likely only unlock after the last tutorial bit has popped up - again iirc.

Craving some more color and variety in your next Bionic run? Grab a boost and a couple of custom floors!

Yeah, the tutorials cause a lot of things to be hidden from you so that newbies can immerse themselves in the game more slowly, rather than being thrown straight into the deep end.
Artifacts on a world get shown in the detail stats for that world, which you can see when you right-click the world you're interested in.  Also, for whatever world your at right now, there's a "Planetary Statistics" button in the interface.

Ah I see you've encountered a bug. Luckily there's an in-game fix.

Make friends with the Acutians, put the War Industries in power and pay whatever paltry sum of credits they ask to blow up the Thoraxian homeworld.  >D

??? Aren't those are usually called features? ;D

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA! >D
Or, if you're feeling like you don't want the negative hit for using a planetcracker, do lots of stuff to tank the Thoraxians' Environmental and Medial RCIs, and then grind through a bunch of orbital bombing dispatches.  That's the long way, though.  The Evucks's spy probes can make things a bit shorter, but even then...
