As fleets have expanded their holdings and rosters, a need to secure their supply chains has developed. To ensure that they have enough power to keep up with their demands, fleets have staked out claims on the dilithium-rich asteroids of the Vlugta asteroid belt.
Similar to Fleet Starbases and Embassies, special projects will become available from time to time for fleets’ Dilithium Mines. Completion of these special projects will unlock new features to expand the commercial and technological appearance of your mine. Be quick, though – when a special project becomes available, it will only be available for a limited time; you must start the project before the end of the feature. Once you’ve started the project, you can keep working on it until it’s finished, even if the special event ends. As with Starbases and Embassies, you can only work on one special project at a time, so act fast.
Our next special featured project for the Fleet Dilithium Mine is, “Center of Commerce.” As fleets continue to expand and excavate their mines, they are able to keep up with the high demands for dilithium of many of the larger factions in the quadrant. As a result, the Federation and Klingon Defense Force, along with their Romulan Republic allies, have increased trade activities, as evident by the additional incoming and outgoing space traffic.
Upon completion of this special project, enhancements will be made to your Fleet Dilithium Mine. Additional space traffic will be added to the exterior (space) of your Dilithium Mine. This special project is available now until around when server maintenance starts on September 19, 2013 (or 7AM PDT — whichever is earlier).
Keep checking back to see what’s next on the featured project list. We hope you are enjoying Legacy of Romulus and we’ll see you in-game.
