the pink is supposed to be the transparent color. try just deleting the file containing the prof pics the game should then replace the missing file next time you load. (don't kill me if this messes up the game ... ive never tried deleting that one)

[bug] new contractor bug

ok so here's the problem. i went to 1v1 starSCREAM on Pv2 and we were "contracted" even though we both weren't listed with the other contracs. also we tried contracting then resigning and removing eachother and nothing worked. we tried a duel but after we went back to being "contracted" that didn't ...

no it could be done with one person. but much funner with 4 seeing who will be the one to cap. i have some others of my single handed attempts (i failed cause i suck) and i could have got lucky.

no the "warp gates" between perma's should be located at andromeda and freesid base system (thus giving them a unique characteristic) and each perma should link to only 2 others effectively creating a travel loop of perma galaxies. this would create a new aspect when having wars. defend the galaxy! ...

lol yea i understand that but only a percentage of the systems would be "volatile" systems. additionally those systems would be indicated as such on the galaxy map. so you'd have to be an idiot to make one of those your home systems. the main idea here is the changing warp paths though.

why not just make a galaxy that morphs more consistently warp points would change randomly (like every 5-7 days) also we could incorporate your idea of unstable systems that randomly get deleted and replaced by a new system somewhere else. (50% stable 50% unstable) this would be a kick donkey server
