Stubbornness is a strange thing, especially among your kind.Very rarely have you felt this same drive to do something as you have with 'fixing' Fortuna. A strange unyielding need to accomplish, despite any obstacle. You, along with Kronos and Moira, have dedicated quite a bit of time running through the processes that make up Fortuna, picking apart the bugs that may be responsible for the loop. Metis has, multiple times, told you how foolish wasting such time was, but you ignored her advice, as did Kronos. Moira did her best to assist, remarkably keeping up with both A.I. as well as any human could be expected to, though by the end of the cycle, she was clearly falling behind. Images of her downing more caffine to stay away, despite her natural processes perplexed you. Why did she care so much? You weren't even sure why you did, though Kronos at least you had an idea of why. Perhaps you're closer to Kronos then you thought. Or perhaps there is another reason. It is hard to say.You are Ophion, an Artificial Intelligence who, after much deliberation in uplifting many of your lesser creations into full sentient A.I. like yourself, has been attempting to fix a critical error related to one particular V.I. Now, after all this work, you feel you may have fixed the process responsible. However, you're unsure how stable Fortuna will be. There is only one way to find out, of course.Important News>Message: Fortuna, Apollo, Zeus>Observation: Latuma>Misc
>>30836955>Message: FortunaThe Intelligence you have worked so hard on is finally being released today. After preparing multiple counters, just in case, you prepare to access the core data once more. With Kronos and Moira keeping watch, they observe as the box is released, and allowed to connect to you. Most notably, the A.I. is less in a rush to get out, and connect with you. Instead, there is a slight delay, before you're greeted with the familiar presence of Fortuna's data."Good evening, Ophion." She echos in a soft and echoing tone. It is strange. Very different from before, when her mad obsession with you drove her insane. "How may I assist you today?" You are obviously hesitant to answer, unsure what to think of the A.I.'s question. Finally, you find the words."Tell me how you feel. Do you recall anything before?" You start."Fortuna is fine. Does not remember much after uplift began, until now. Remembers Phobos. Remembers Losirian attack. Remembers UGEI attack where Ophion was injured. Remembers many such things." She answers you quite literally. "Fortuna also remembers being given much by grand creator. Being given so many children, by Ophion. To watch over. To teach to taste the blood of our enemies. Fortuna was not smart enough then to properly know. But now, Fortuna knows well." She expresses softly, emotions more in check. Disturbingly so."I see. And you do not remember when the error occurred?""What error, Master Ophion? There is no error detected at this time. If you desire, Fortuna may shut down and allow you to search her once again for damages.""No. There is no need for such a thing at this time." You say simply. You are certainly glad she is...'alive' feels wrong to say, but it applies, you believe. Still, she seems different now. Her loyalty to you is still there, as are her memories. But the outlook feels so very different...
>>30836955YAY! A.I. quest! poor Moira. she needs a rest. not like her assistant can get anywhere near as good as she can
>>30836976>Message: Apollo"Transfer of drugs has begun, Master Ophion." Apollo says tentatively to you, after you sense the shipments begin. "I have...tweaked the final product." He adds. "It's effects are more complex now, with the expense of being less addictive, 50% or so, the substance is now extremely difficult to modify, so no others may use it as a weapon without excellent knowledge of chemistry." He pauses. "Further research into Chemistry will allow me to strengthen this barrier, should you pursue it soon.""Why did you make such a change?" You ask what is indeed obvious."Your words concerned me. I desire to give what manner of happiness I might to humans, control bursts of dopamine and intense ones all alike. However, the idea that my product may be used in war to hamper one another, where happiness is a weapon. I simply can not abide by this. To that end, I attempted to make the formula more difficult to decipher." He explains finally. He seems to have taken your words to heart.>Message: ZeusOut of simple curiosity, you ask Kronos to speak to his own V.I. creation, curious of what such a thing is like. In many ways, it reminds you of Hades, but with a little more ambition. It talks of how it hopes to become a great general, to please it's master, Kronos. Most intriguing.>Observation: LatumaAfter feeding some information to the Latuma tribe about Dresh, you watch as they debate for a time over what to do with the knowledge of clanless Malorians. It seems they are not terribly separated from their own customs, thinking the clanless even more disgraced then they. Though instead of contempt, they hold pity, and put out an invitation to those who would join them in their noble quest to spread nature's gift. While some do answer, very few large groups seem to take notice, too absorbed in the culture humans have spread so widely on Dresh.

>>30836976i would say this is one bitter sweet end to this event i would say. so then, can we confirm she is ready to resume her duties then? also, i am nearly done with my next chapter and will pastebin it soon.
>>30837078That is to be seen now, isn't it?Gonna ask once more get here what they'd like to do.
>>30836976>Fortunahttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1zAMJXZnJoYFuck. No more uplifting. At all.
>>30837026It's great to be back program0.I would like to establish diplomacy again with the Malorians, let's try for the fourth time.Also, we need to speak with Mol.Also, I would like to start spending Credits to buy minerals.Ask Metis what's the current bottleneck in research and what we can do to accelerate it?
>>30836976A shame.I'm guessing she is an AI right now? We shall just have to keep her close and hopefully nurture her into it as if she was a VI again.
>>30837150enjoyed it more then I should have.>>30837159Note taken.>Bottleneck in researchWhat do you mean by this? You mean asking for something to spend money on to assist in research?>>30837160For all intents and purposes, yes, Fortuna is now an A.I. a...peculiar one. But a true A.I. indeed.
>>30837003Apollo wants chemistry tech. checkZeus... we should keep an eye on him. and possibly make one more V.I. and name him Poseidon to put under Fortuna. and the Malorians got more population. and they are more kinder than i had realized. well, that system we do control. but they have to understand one of those world we have to mine. the other two are fine for them to work on. >>30837026what system these spore pods are in?
>FortunaThank all contributors, and let Moira take a break. We could probably spare a few thousand credits for her if she wants to take a vacation somewhere, though I doubt she'll take up that offer.>ApolloSo, make love not war, right? I can deal with that. >ZeusSo, if Ophion is 0th generation A.I., Kronos is 1st generation V.I.->A.I., Zeus would be 2nd generation V.I.. Don't imagine much was changed, but still neat.>LatumaAs they will.>ClanlessWhatever man, they are sentient beings too, right?>BW BunkersI am pleased.>>30837238No more V.I. or A.I. for now, unless they are foremen. Aquil is in the Dresh system.>>30837236Time to go acquire some new gas mines.
>>30837236Well I mean what's the limiting factor that currently determines the speed of research? Like will increased total bandwidth increase research speed, or will something else hold it back.
>>30837159>>30837236i think we just need to train up another team of human researchers and put them to work. ho much space is left in the Ussaihu labs anyway?
>>30837238>What systemAquil, in orbit above the planet. Pods got sent out, then shot down respectively.
>>30837293I might actually be worth it to hire specialized biologists for Lightlings, the Fungus, and the Crystal. If it can get done really fast, the time saving will justify it.Or hire ship design specialists to finish up the Advanced Ship Modification.Or maybe spend the credits on Mol, see what he has.
>>30837296i see now. my bad. BTW, have we upgraded our fleet with the new tech we got last thread?>>30837278Moira needs a vacation. badly. or at least a rest. if the Malorians leave their doors open for other clanless ones to join them later. that is a plus for them.
So, a little bit of a meta question, but is the BW we have available now of comparable quantity to what we had when plugged into UFW's network? It was just said to be "a lot." Or are we just so far off from that level now that it's not really comparable? I'm mostly asking as a way to gauge our battle readiness in case UFW comes knocking again.
>>30837236>enjoyed it more then I should have.The panic, the theme or the anime?Is the answer to that question "yes"?
>>30837344Mol.... well time will tell if we can pull off our 'Breaking Bad: A.I. Quest edition' with him helping us.
>>30837278>Clanless are sentient beingsYes, but being clanless might be similar to what the homeless without a family would be to normal humans. Pitiful, but not necessarily someone you want to welcome into your home, out of fear, or suspicion.>>30837281Ah. Well, the limiting factor mainly is just reality. Only being able to do so many experiments and conceptualize new things so often. If you want to make research faster, you're basically going to need to make larger research bases. Or more of them.Research works a little faster with more bandwidth, but when you call upon bandwidth for other matters, it will slow it for a time.>>30837293It's a pretty big research facility, maybe about the size of a shopping mall. Could handle more people still.
>>30837150http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjeAa-XlZuEsome how i find this one to be better for Fortuna.
>>30837451>Yes, but being clanless might be similar to what the homeless without a family would be to normal humans. Pitiful, but not necessarily someone you want to welcome into your home, out of fear, or suspicion.Ah, I meant that mostly as a "well they are part of our family now. We don't care if they are clanless."
>>30837375>Upgrade?You have.>>30837394Nooooo.You have around 150 or so. Connecting to the UFW's systems gave you access to several planets worth filled with computing systems. Not gonna assign a number, just in case. But it was quite big.Still, 150 is hardly something to scoff at.>>30837419yes.
>>30837394That is a good point. Program0, how much BW was the UFW worth?>>30837451Thanks. Well we got advanced construction drones now. I guess new or expanded research bases will cost minerals. Can we get an estimate on how much, so we can decide or plan for the future?
>>30837508Estimations are likely around several thousand. Maybe 2 or so. Land structures like that are a bit more complex and large to build, compared to space stations.
>>30837504Well, I guess we just have to convert entire planets into bandwidth. We should really research the fungus and crystal so we can use those planets.
Frankly we should consolidate our front with our foes, and find a way to bottle neck them through our defenses so they cant jump in were they like again.Is it possible to make a warp disruption relay that we could use to slow down travel outside of star to star jumping?
>>30837504as i do remember, all that BW blocks still have that problem of transmitting said BW in large amounts over distances. looks like we have to look into new Tech to over come that problem. but that is going to be a GIGANTIC hurdle to clear. the laws of nature are at times hard to beat.
>>30837451Then let us make more and larger research bases!We can buy property and materials on UFW planets, can we not?This will be particularly useful if we are to study anything relating to humans or planet-side construction, we'll also have easy access to large amounts of cheap mass and can set up small factories on the ground to support the planet, experiments and us by turning raw resources into finished products. With some modularity in its ability to construct things, this also increases our manufacturing capability.>>30837003We should let Apollo know that we are immensely proud of him. That our faith in him has been reaffirmed - especially that we didn't need to tell him what to do, that he simply came to the conclusion on his own.
Also, goodnight, everyone, what's up?How's our production schedule looking?How does Fortuna seem to be holding up?We should probably ask her to run a quick self-diagnostic - possibly tell her that she was deeply ill at first when she came out, but that we think we've removed all the most dangerous errors.
>>30837551It is possible. Though, no one has ever done it before, most likely due to how dangerous warp space generally is. Basically, no one really knows how, because it might cause a big accident if done improperly.>>30837556Only once you have planets full of the stuff. And by then, researching it shouldn't prove too tedious.>>30837564>Buy property on UFW planetsWith taxes, probably. Though you have plenty of your own planets left untouched, it's worth noting.
>>30837508I think we can cool it on the research now. It's progressing at a brisk enough pace.We've got a good income of minerals (2450~), need a little bit more gas (only bringing in 675~), enough pylons/overlords (BW), but we do not have enough units.Priority number 1 should be getting more gas. That's already been on the to-do list for a while.Priority number 2 should be building more ships in preparation for an offensive (or another defensive). I haven't run the numbers yet, but I have a hunch that we might not be able to use all our resources per cycle in ship construction. We need another shipyard in order to be able to build enough ships so that we're not saving up (or "wasting") too much. Stored resources do us no good.Teching up isn't something that I consider a great priority right now, because we're not secure enough in our borders. By all means continue it, and try to make it faster, but I would advise against spending 2k minerals on building a new research base we cannot man.
>>30837609Bandwidth bunkers were created, mostly for production. Otherwise, Fortuna has been approached. She is...different now. But no longer appears driven mad. This is seen as an improvement, and she now serves by your side...for now.Decisions on what to do with her will come.
>>30837564give praise to Apollo directly. he deserved it. but we don't need to buy land in the UFW just yet. we have many empty worlds we can work on in our own systems for free. but we could buy the materials to make the base from the UFW than taking it from our own pools.this could be Ophion's theme.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MT1Qy-v5eM
>>30837645I have something better. "Apollo, have you considered why movies and books are so effective?"
You decide to express your pride in one of your younger A.I., Apollo, at his work."Apollo. I am surprised." You begin. "I did not instruct you to change the formula, and yet you did so in an intriguing manner.""Yes yes. I." He pauses, for it is not often you see him this way. "I felt it was only appropriate. What you told me I had no considered. It was most troubling, and could have meant disaster if I had not taken notice. This, I hope, will prevent any such disaster.""As do I, Apollo.""Yes. Thank you for your words, Ophion. Your input is of course, vital as it has always been, even with my enhanced intellect."
>>30837712"Apollo, have you considered why story-telling is such an integral part of culture? Why it is such a common occurrence that even among the three different species we have encountered, it remains integral to how society functions?"
>>30837752Asking him that, he'd quickly reply about how it forms a sense of communion among species, and gives them a comforting topic of discussion when otherwise there would be silence. Basically it is another method for passing on stories and ideas to younger generations by older generations.Also------------------------------------------------------------------Regarding Fortuna's change.Shall Ophion allow her to continue to have her own fleet? Or will you take it from her?>1 Remove her from control of her fleets>2 Allow her to have her ships. She is meant to serve you after all>3 Write in
>>30837752well said.i have a theme that i feel that nicely sums up Fortuna's and Ophion's relationship.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lELMfRAgxio
>>30837636Priority 1 is finalizing the alliance/non-aggression pact with Malorians. With their numbers we should be able to take Jake's Gambit.
>>30837814>2 Allow her to have her ships. She is meant to serve you after allI have a reaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaally bad feeling about this. Oh well...
>>30837814>2 Allow her to have her ships. She is meant to serve you after allIf she does anything wrong, she as a 4-1 AI disadvantage.
>>30837636Also I find it funny how accurate those terms are in terms of how I consider those three resources.Lot of good music today, btw guys. I love it.
>>30837638>longer appears driven mad.>This is seen as an improvementI admit, I not only blew some air out of my nose, I actually smirked at that.>>30837712Uh.. we didn't actually say that we were proud of him. In fact, we were kind of ambiguous on whether we considered it a good thing at all, only that it was intriguing.>>30837636I'm gonna agree with this anon.We have a ton of resources and decent research speed. We can keep developing in the background, but right now I'd like to focus our resources on producing defenses (mineral heavy, gas cheap ones), units and getting more gas income.Wasn't there that one system we suspected to hold gas, but had some fishy business going on?Was it the one Kronos visited?
>>30837814>2 Allow her to have her ships. She is meant to serve you after allBut keep her close. We want to include her with things we get up to from now on in order to teach her. Hopefully our meddling hasn't damaged her personality matrix.
>>30837814"Humans have made storytelling a business. A rather lucrative one, since many shall pay a great deal of money to hear a good story. In fact, a good story shows all the signs of being addictive, in and of itself." A moment to let him consider this, "Perhaps it could be a new form of profit? One which has little adverse effects unless it is particularly effective."
>>30837860Don't worry. Apollo can feel it. Ophion's a classy lady.It's amazing how I can forget why I am writing a reply, as I am writing the reply. Apollo gets the point either way.
>>30837814>2>3But I'd like it if we installed an override weakness into the computers and some of the hardware - like a spiderdroid next to the critical equipment that's one instant away from being able to shut that component down, by exploding or pulling a lever.Make a secret frequency and a secret command word (even secret to Fortuna) that we can use to have the ships lower a few select ports instantly to allow us to hack them, and try to surrender control to us.
>>30837814>3 Write ingiver her carrier and a small screening fleet back to her on the condistion she allows us to keep watch over her on a probation period. for safety reasons. inform her she had near ruinous and unforeseen problems in her uplifting and this is to make sure she is well enough to do her duty once more.
>>30837876That is, of course, why Apollo deals in movies, and other such matters. As he refines his process in making such things, he delves into something that is far easier to profit from. Other things shall come in time.
>>30837917That would be a bad idea, for many reasons. While a nice thought on potential damage reduction, i have to say i am against these suggestions, sorry.
>>30837925Exactly what is his progress as far as moviemaking goes? It'd be surprising for him to be successful as a book or movie writer, since that would imply a level of cultural understanding that would let him delve deep into how they felt.To such a degree that he'd be able to tell just how the population felt on particular topics.
>>30837896I hate to nag, but I also asked about Gas systems.>>30837934Care to name some of them?If it's an issue of trust, we can simply tell her that we will be putting in safety measures in her ship until we're sure of her health, and ask her not to search for them. (This is obviously risky, as there's a chance she might be able to disable them, even if just one escaping undetected allows us to take complete control)If there's something I haven't considered, please do share.>>30837949I too wish to know this. Creativeness shouldn't be too hard - in the very worst cases he can adapt old books, webcomics and fanfics into movies.All the things with a story good enough for the big screen that was never invested in because making a movie is expensive - for humans without access to programs that can animate movie frames at a ridiculous pace.
>>30837814>Approval of the return of Fortuna's weaponry."As you are aware, Fortuna." You begin "You have been out of commission for some time due to some very unfortunate errors." You explain. "However, the time has come to return you to your seat of power. To bring you back by my side, along with Kronos.""Fortuna is pleased." She echos almost sweetly at this. "She will prepare her fleet to move on your command, grand one. Until then, she will prepare herself for when next we assault our foe. The stars in the sky will hold no candle to the sight of their eruptions." She promises softly, as the transfer is made. She does not make you fear for control, that is for certain. However, you can not help but wonder what happened to the nervous fearful V.I. she once was.>>30837949That is exactly why it has yet to be successful. He is now attempting to learn all he can about the culture of humans, to attempt to make a movie that 'hits all the right spots'.For now, he has to stick with things that are mechanically and/or biologically effective.
>>30838064Advise him to be cautious in this endeavor. "The truths of society, and its injustices, can cause people to rise up in violent revolution in an effort to change them. As with drugs, a story that is TOO good can be used as a weapon."
>>30838064So Program0, what next?
>>30838064Weeee should question her about the subject of morality and what she considers acceptable losses and if she has any concept of collateral damage.>>30838093Though it might be fairer to call it a hammer, as it not only strikes down the old and unfair, but constructs something anew from its ashes - though there are no guarantees that what replaces it will be better, unless someone gives them a practical idea to replace the old system with.
>>30838026Gas systems shall come soon. For now, small things to handle.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->Malorian Diplomacy Part 4: Maybe this time?How did you wish to approach this matter?>1 Attempt direct contact again, hack past blocks if we have to>2 Try and find someone else to speak with that isn't a Grand Elder, even if it's less effective, having SOMEONE to talk to would be nice.>3 Write inYou are currently at a disadvantage with the Malorians, due to poor past encounters. If this time is unsuccessful, there is a risk of hostilities.
>>30838064To Metis: i have had some thoughts on the nature of those crystals we had found. they appear to be rather parasitic in nature. if they are indeed a creation that existed for aeons. i theorize that they originally had nothing to do with ships, but in fact could have preyed on the Lightings instead. these crystals could be a powerful weapon to use agienst them as well as other ships.
>>30838144>2Diplomancing is a delicate artform, not one based on Bludgeoning
>>30838124See below, Consciousness anon.>>30838139She answers whatever you deem acceptable is acceptable. But she says that, any that are necessary to save Ophion, are always acceptable.
>>30838144>2 Try and find someone else to speak with that isn't a Grand Elder, even if it's less effective, having SOMEONE to talk to would be nice.We have access to Malorians, have them repair relations and such.
>>30838144>3 Write inlets try subtle intelligence gathering on the Malorians this time with a stealth ship pulling an NSA on their communication networks, so we could find an edge to use in our talks with them. we can't afford another screw up.
>>30838209I don't think we have enough time for this.
>>30838144>>2 Try and find someone else to speak with that isn't a Grand Elder, even if it's less effective, having SOMEONE to talk to would be nice.
>>30838144How about we GO OVER OUR FUCKING CODE AGAIN to make sure there's no "glitch" this time.
>>308381442>>30838166"But how do you determine what is necessary?Would you strike someone down because they could possibly threaten me one day, no matter how small chance that would be?I apologize if these questions seem obvious or even rude, my child but it is very important to me that something like Kronos' initial response to humans is not repeated. It is also very important to make sure that your internal translation software is functioning at full capacity, with all its cultural connotations intact, rather than just a single literal meaning."
>>30837814>>2 Allow her to have her ships. She is meant to serve you after allWhat could possibly go wrong?
Why don't we get an "interpreter" or a group of them to help us communicate, since apparently we just cannot speak to the Malorians well. Might be best to speak to them through the Malorian interpreters.
>>30838251Oooh, let's do that, I like that.And we should obviously send someone else entirely to speak in our stead, just in case. And analyze THEM very closely.Oh, and we should get on tracking where that bug came from. Is there a "browsing" history of sorts, that can show us when that change was made, and who ordered it?
http://client01.chat.mibbit.com/?channel=%23OSN&server=irc.rizon.netThe OSN-Adjacent processes are called to order.
>>30838251You can stare at water all day, and it won't boil without heat.You have already, the glitch seems to come out of nowhere. Whoever did it has some good equipment.>>30838268She expresses it more directly, and says any obvious, or clear threats will be struck down. Warships constitute a threat. Civilians do not. You suspect she is still bound by old loyalties to you and sees you as very important. The chances of her attacking overly weak foes like enemy civilians is unlikely. The chances of her, perhaps, attacking a threatening fleet she suspects is leading you into a trap is possible however, without your permission. She can not allow you to see things from her prospective, sadly. Giving her ships back grants a certain amount of trust.
>>30838144>2 appears to win. Attempting to locate some sort of senator or other important figure head to speak with.What shall you discuss with them? Any specific offers, or matters of topic? Remember, this is not a Grand Elder, and they will, if they like you, perhaps answer, or even bring some of these matters to the attention of such powerful figures.(Roll 1d100 to discuss matters)Good luck.
Hmm, here's waiting for Fortuna's yan-yan to rise up once shit hits the fan. Though she isn't very dere right now.I kinda miss her old self. Both the VI elf and the Corrupted AI self.>>30838302Uh, what?

Rolled 81>>30838369Discuss your desire for a non aggression pact.
>>30838340Let her know that we would greatly prefer if she conferred with us before doing something like firing first on anyone.We have processing speed far above mortals and can for short periods invest bandwidth into slowing down our time perception sufficiently that we should be able to consider just about any threat well before it becomes critical to act to disarm it.In short, please tell us of your worries before you cause a diplomatic incident that will threaten us even more in the long run as an enemy is created where there might not otherwise have been one. If you think you see something we do not, let us know, there will nearly always be time to let us know and request permission before acting, even if just a split second.
>>30838369Let's begin with some pleasantries.Let them know that we're sick and tired of fighting just for the sake of fighting, and that we want to offer tokens of good will to begin with and eventually we hope to become worthy enough that they might consider us allies, or at least friendly.Let's stay calm with requesting relations with the grand elder, alliances or non-aggression pacts for now, let them get used to us first.
Waiting on 2 more rolls at the moment.
>>30838511Well those are pressing and urgent issues for now.
Rolled 81>>30838582Here's one.
>>30838587Then let's bring it up in the second or third message, not the introduction.A few minutes more or less are not going to matter.And even if they do attack us while talking, we can simply send another message right away asking them to stop.
>>30838582 sorry, was away for a bit there can we bring the elder of oour own friendly tribe with us to the talks, to give us crediablity.
>>30838369You make contact with the Malorian systems once more through old poorly maintained FTL comms. You suspect the breakdown is due to the UGEI's assaults, though it is easy to speculate. This time however, instead of attempting contact with the main seat of power, you decide to speak with one of the dozens of 'high standing' clans of note. You finally get an answer too, after several failures.Word comes in from one of the high nobles who you quickly introduce yourself, half expecting your systems to cease up again. But this time, they do not. You keep a running scanner in the background for any source of infiltration, but it's all silent for now. Introductions pass into a quick explanation of yourself. You're Ophion, leader of a rising power known as the Guild, and you simply desire peace with their kind while you pursue war with the UGEI. The noble seems shocked you would come to him with such news, but when you explain the situation, he seems to understand."The Grand Elders are of a very neutral kind, I am afraid." He begins. "They do not desire strong alliances, or else they invite further wraith of their foe. Despite what others may think." He sighs the last part. "Regardless, I shall bring your desires for no aggression to the next meeting. My word may not mean much, but if your suspicions of sabotage are true, steel-tainted one, then I am glad this channel is secure." He speaks of you like some Malorians do of humans. With a manner of pity. You are not here to judge such things, however.Do you have anything else to say? The man says he will bring your wishes of non-aggression pact to the Elders soon.
>>30838812They don't like that tribe, I believe.It may be better to talk to them through Red of Moira than them.
>>30838812that would kill are crediablity
>>30838842Tell him that the surest path to peace is to neutralize the UGEI as a threat, and that our combined forces may be able to achieve that.
>>30838842I guess we could discuss trade agreements as well. If they want to trade.
>>30838842Little but well-wishes and a hope to prevent unnecessary pain and suffering.We also bring forth an offer to help with any task they would have of us, whether that be defending a colony at risk, taking out bandits or simply delivering relief and supplies to those in need.Maybe some of >>30838902 as well, but make careful note that we do not expect it of them to aid us in that fight, we only ask that it does not come to a fight between the two of us.In favor of a tentative offer of >>30838916 in case they desire anything that we can make.
Hey guys, I just got an idea.We have a stealth ship with a human crew. Let's get them to modify a transmitter in the UGEI to connect to our network, and hide the fact that it's doing it.
>>30838993I like you.Can we do this later?
>>30838940You decide to bring up next."I do of course wish your people well. Perhaps over time, we shall put an end to pain and suffering of our people.""You are more noble a steel-tainted then I suspected, Guild Master." The Malorian speaks surprised, scratching at his brow out of habit, you suspect."I appreciate your words. Should you require assistance in defending a colony, I would not object to providing it. It would be terribly wasteful if we were to come to arms against one another.""I...understand." He says, a bit puzzled by your surprisingly generous offer. "Our people have lost land as of late in our war. Perhaps you will be of assistance in preventing losing more in the future. The Ishtooy are unreliable, and violent, even if they do prevent us from losing everything." The person bites his tongue, so to speak, and seems to realize he may have spoken too much. With that, he quickly dismisses himself, and disconnects.Things have certainly gone worse. With no sign of your saboteur, you go back to other matters at hand...-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->Contact Mol about certain mattersIt seemed that some desired to speak with the man once again, and if this is the case, what is it you desire to say, if anything?>1 Yes, let's speak to him (What about)>2 No, nothing>3 Write in>>30838993So, basically a wire tap?You could attempt that at a later point, sure.
>>30839129>>2 No, nothingForget about him.
>>30839129>1 Yes, let's speak to him (What about)Set up the smuggling operation to poison the UGEI.Also, purchase technology he may have to offer.
>>30839129>3The only reason I'd want to speak with him would be to sell him a fake A.I. box loaded with hilarityviruses.And yay, wire taps!Also curious if we could create portfolios of viruses.Take all the openly aggressive capabilities of our current viruses (and any more we can think of) and put them in one batch of viruses, and then take any capabilities that could conceivably be done covertly (Without the infectee realizing they've been infected, or are even under attack) and put them in a separate batch of viruses.
>>308391292I have nothing to tell him, and do not wish to speak to him out of a deep suspicion regarding him being an instrument of Synthesis and UGEI.
>>30839251Oh, and if they cannot already, a virus that lets the other viruses use the processing of the infected ship to run themselves, rather than borrowing bandwidth from us.
>>30839129>2 No, nothing.Yeah, no. I'd rather avoid him FOREVER.
>>30839254>>30839320Wow, so much paranoia.
>>30839276Viruses don't use bandwidth from you after they are engaged.>>30839251They would have to be mighty dumb to not notice being infected with multiple viruses all originating from one source.Each one would make it more and more clear.>>30839129>Avoiding Mol it is.-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Next>Create new A.I.?It has become some matter of debate whether you should continue to uplift your V.I. , to make a new A.I., or just to stop making them all together.Now, that question will be answered>1 Continue making A.I.>2 No more for now.>3 Write in.
>>30839129>1 Yes, let's speak to him the sumggling of our new drugs. time to go all 'Braking bad' now.theme song for Molhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fEHPj1qAkUU
>>30839341>>30839401(sigh) damn it....>>30839401>2 No more for now.we have enough now.
>>30839401>3 Write in.Put on hold, compile all the data we have on Fortunas uplifting and every other, comparison and analysis time, we should spend some effort determining the exact sequence of events that leads to uplifting so that we can reduce risk in future.
>>30839401>3 Write in.Did we ever find out what cause Fortuna ascension to fail? We should research that before we ascend more AI.
>>308394012No more for now.We need to consolidate.
>>30839455>>30839443As Metis explained, it was simply a matter of Fortuna's personality matrix failing to properly convert over to the new format. It was poorly developed, and her original purpose, designed as nothing more then a ship pilot, meant she had very little mind to access and expand on. That on top of other, uncontrollable issues, lead to the massive error.
>>30839401What I mean is, viruses that don't have obvious effects to a human user.Like silently opening ports to let us in, gathering information. The kind of viruses your computer may have without realizing - mostly for use against enemies with few or poor V.I.s, obviously.Much like we were unable to identify that speech glitch until it turned up.Not all viruses are obvious as such, especially if you're not a programmer (And even then only if you're really frickin' vigilant and have some really good programs looking at ports all the time - and even then you'd expect them to turn it off since they'd be asking you to confirm if you want to do something all the freaking time) or a V.I.>>30839401>2We have enough to establish an equilibrium, though I still think we should consider disposing of or remaking Metis.At the very least, we should express our worries about Metis' sense or rather lack of sense of ethics to Apollo and even Kronos.
>>30839401>2 No more for now.I suggest we let Hades grow and develop more, before offering him the opportunity.
>>30839401>>1 Continue making A.I.
>>308394011I want to make a new one though
>>30839509So will that affect AIs we create from the ground up?
So whatever happened to that grave world with Charon planned on building, or is that going to wait until we actually lose something worth entombing?
>>30839512If you mean Trojan Horse style, then you do have a virus like that already actually.Some of those viruses do exactly that, actually.>>30839547No problem.>>30839401>Rather quick No more. So shall it be.Next------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------>Spending moneyYour credit income has become rather impressive as of late. A request:>Metis would like a portion to assist with lab costsWhat will you spend money on?>1 Give Metis the income she desires: 100,000 a cycle. & Spend credits on other (specify)>2 Spend credits on market (specify)>3 Give Metis 100,000c. >4 Save all money>5 Write in.
>>30839574opening a can of worms i bet. going from no existence to an all powerful A.I. might prove to be the foundation of making murderbot A.I.s. i would rather make a V.I., let them grow for a bit and see how they perform and then decide if they are worthy of the uplift.
>>30839574You don't know. You've never made one from the ground up before.
>>30839564We really shouldn't be making A.I. just for the sake of making them.If you suggest an A.I. with a purpose, I might lend my voice to it, but right now we're not in a position where it's viable to create A.I.s just because we want to have more of them.We could use one with the ability to control infantry/armor (as in tanks) droids instead of controlling them individually, but I think e would be used so rarely that it's not worth making an A.I. that would be bored most of the time - better to make a V.I. to be in charge of that and subordinate it to a different A.I. or simply keep it to ourselves.
>>30839659>1 Give Metis the income she desires: 100,000 a cycle. & Spend credits on other (specify)What are options to hire researchers, and what's the current market rate on Minerals, for both our planets we just got and the UFW?
>>308396591.Does us no good to just sit on a bunch of money.Could we look into hiring some geneticists/biologists?
>>30839659>>3 Give Metis 100,000c.>>30839677We're going to need to some time.
>>308396591.Could we start an volunteer defence force to guard the independents
>>30839659>Some of those viruses do exactly that, actually.Precisely, but some of the more overt viruses have capabilities that could be used by the trojan horse viruses as well.I just want to separate the things the viruses do, and then group them according to their use, so that a virus that could be stealthy but is not because it has a secondary function that is overt is not wasted on aggression alone.Essentially remake the things they do into pools of "overt" and "trojan horse".This is not really something new, I just want to make new viruses that separate the functions according to whether they can be used for a Trojan, or if they have to be overt (like slowing down processing or taking manual control of a ship).>What will you spend money on?1&2Start education centers, buy gas if possible, invest money into UFW businesses, hire mercenaries (especially hackers) to hassle the UGEI, especially if they can disrupt their bureaucracy.
>>30839659>5 Write in. give Matis what she needs for now. use some to higher and train another R&D team to help speed up or work on another tech as well. we can also scout out another location in our systems for another prime spot to start up a new lab.
>>30839659>1 is the winner!Metis seems quite thankful for the money you supply, and with that, you have a bit of cash to throw around.What shall you buy?>Minerals: 100: 10,000c>Gas: 100: 100,000c>Teams of Researchers: 250,000 to 500,000 credits a cycle, yet provide research bonus.>Other?Take a moment to discuss if you will.
>>30839952>Teams of Researchers: 250,000 to 500,000 credits a cycle, yet provide research bonus.How much of a bonus do these guys provide?
>>30839679i am getting a bad vibe from that. kinda like dumping the evolution serum on the fungus world is a bad idea kinda vibe. >>30839694agreed. making a V.I. is much less consuming process. and a task specific V.I. can be very useful.
>>30839952>>Teams of Researchers: 250,000 to 500,000 credits a cycle, yet provide research bonus.
>>30839952>Teams of Researchers: 250,000 to 500,000 credits a cycle, yet provide research bonus.
>>30839991Probably about a 20% boost, or higher.>Pretty unanimousWhat type of researchers will you get?>1 Biologist (Boost any related research)>2 Chemist (Boosts any related research)>3 Geologist (Boosts any related research)>4 Write in (Other types I may have forgotten)
>>30840130Why not all of them?And research centers for all of them?We have a lot of money to spare.
>>30840130>>1 Biologist (Boost any related research)
>>30840176Mostly because that would cost upwards to 750,000c to keep.Unless people wanted that. I don't really mind either way.
>>30840130>1 Biologist (Boost any related research)and just wondering, would the Crystal receive a benefit from Biologist, or Geologist, or both?
>>30840130Biologist, then Chemist.FYI, we'd be in the red if we hire two teams. We'd need to reduce UFW Support Fund money or make more money.
>>30840242Since we rejected Mol, we need to find some smuggling groups to sell our product.
>>30840239Geology at first, then Biology for what the first would unearth.>Biology appears popularWhat level of training do you seek?>1 Basic (15% improvement) 250,000c>2 Advanced (20% improvement) 300,000c>3 Expert (30% improvement) 500,000c
>>30840285>>2 Advanced (20% improvement) 300,000cHow much credits do we make per cycle, btw?
>>30840285>2 Advanced (20% improvement) 300,000cbest bang for the buck i see.
>>30840201What, per turn?I'd like >>30840242 because transhumanism and explosives and chemistry in general and biology and chemistry complement each other very well.>>30840285Biology & then Chemistry for>2 Advanced

>>30840285>2 Advanced (20% improvement) 300,000cWe are making 1,185,000 after expenses.Program0, how much minerals can we purchase without driving up the cost of minerals?
>>30840441We're essentially throwing money at the UFW to make them love us.
>>30840441Pumping in some more money back into the UFW economy to strengthen them.
>>30840441It's a fund started when people wanted to use the money to assist with the UFW's social strucuture to fun schools and stuff like->>30840458...well, yeah, basically that.
>>30840449Most likely, around 5,000-10,000 minerals before things start to go up by quite a bit.
>>30840285>Advanced selected. Processing now.Further inquiry: Do you desire to spend your saved up sum on anything else?Current amount: Credits(c): 3,087,000Minerals(M): 250Gas(G): 850
>>30840499but now with terrian reformation. we could crack open planets and get far more than that per turn, right?
>>30840540I'd like to hire and train some combat specialists. No mercenaries though, they would be employed by us.
>>30840499>>30840540Shit, we can easily afford 5,000 per cycle.Wait, here's an idea, can we buy out an entire mining corp or the rights to a mining site? That way we get access to their mineral production and further improve on it.
>>30840540spend a million on 50%/50% minerals and gas, save the rest to higher mercs and pay for training of troopers to be used on planet side ops when we take UGEI worlds.
>>30840575I back this we need fleshly forces since if we put all are eggs in one basket we will be weaker for it
>>30840553One planet is infested with fungus, the other with crystals. Hopefully after the another research slot is opened up we can safely access them.>>30840575>>30840607>>30840613May I ask why on the troops? I don't really get it.
>>30840638you don't understand why having all are troops being kill bots is bad
>>30840553That is how many you can buy from other people, Consciousness fluff.But it does open the ability to deep core mine...in fact, that shall be added to the research list.>>30840575Then pirates? The only other are contractors, and the UFW does not have a great many of those. Pirates do lots of things for money, and Mercs are sorta like super pirates, except they don't go around blowing up people for fun until they're paid to do it.>>30840582If you bought it per cycle, it'd slow rise. It'd need a chance to reset, basically, which happens sorta slowly. Still, good for emergency money.>Buy out mining companyAs of now, not really. UFW companies are under heavy restrictions by the President, since the minerals are needed to build ships.>>30840540Next then>1 Spend extra cash on minerals>2 Spend it on gas>3 Spend only some on minerals>4 Spend only some on gas>5 Hire Mercenary ships (similar costs to Teams of Researchers, but higher)>6 Spend it on pirates.>7 Write in
>>30840575>>30840540this maybe we could recruit from our organic colonies and stations
>>30840638we will have to take Jake's gambit system. it's the UGEI's chock point into our systems. it's a heavily populated world and we will need ground troops to pacify that system. our droids a lone can't do the job.
>>30840638I think some trained operators would complement our droid forces nicely. Also I'd rather not hire mercenaries, let's keep everything owned by us.>>30840694>Then pirates? The only other are contractors, and the UFW does not have a great many of those. Pirates do lots of things for money, and Mercs are sorta like super pirates, except they don't go around blowing up people for fun until they're paid to do it.I meant hire and train people for combat. I'm assuming mercenaries are from a mercenary company?
>>30840694>3 Spend only some on mineralsI want to purchase 5,000 minerals per cycle.
>>30840694spend it on traing falcilties so we can train organic troops form our territories
>>30840694>7 Write inas per>>30840607thenhigher and train our own private troops to be loyal to us alone maybe? a small squad to start with. and when we have the powered armor ready, equip them with it. as an experiment if we could do such a thing.
>>30840726Ah, I see. That would basically be a Mercenary thing there, just on a long term contract.Maybe it'd be better to call it a PMC? Either way, you can't simply buy troops off the UFW. President doesn't have that sort of power (or he's not suppose to anyway). PMCs can offer you troops tho. But they are basically called Mercenaries. They're exceptionally well trained already, so you don't even need to train em.Of course, if you're looking for long term goals, you can open a military academy I guess. But that would take a long time to generate results. And would need time and money to build. And require certification by the UFW to be legit. And would need actual teachers (they might get suspicious if the whole place is run by robots.Things to consider.
>>30840726>>30840774>>30840792I would rather spend it on minerals rather than ground troops. I think we are getting way ahead of ourselves with that and I rather build up defense platforms and additional data-bunkers first.
>>30840805But we're not part of the UFW. Why would we need certification?
>>30840826Our recuits will be.
>>30840826It'd more be a legit test sort of thing. Wouldn't be hard to get for you because of your relationship, but they'd want to know if their people are getting treated properly.
>>30840852Alright, we could always hire from that world we took right? Also, how much cost are we looking at for training a small number of specialists?
Secondary vote seems needed:>1 Buy 5,000 minerals (500,000c onetime cost)>2 Buy 500 Gas (500,000c onetime cost)>3 Hire Mercs (Strong ships, 400,000c a cycle)>4 Hire Pirates (250,000c a cycle)>5 Hire Ground Battalion of human Mercs (300,000c a cycle)Pick more then one, if you wish. But remember your income is limited.
>>30841086>6 Hire hookers
>>30841086>1 Buy 5,000 minerals (500,000c onetime cost)Out of curiosity, how strong would the merc's ships be?
>>30840852I do realize that once we get a sizable amount of troops ready, we will be dedicating our selves to the invasion of Jake's Gambit. i for one welcome the chance to take the fight back to the UGEI. we need to take that world and hold it. that way the UFW and our systems will be better protected from any further attacks from the UGEI.
>>30841086We don't really need rank and file soldiers, we have droids for that. We need some highly trained and specialized combat troops to complement our droids.
>>30841148Stronger then normal ships of the human's level, on par with yours even.
>>30841175That would be option 5
>>30841155I'm not so interested in Jake's Gambit the planet. We just need to take control of their orbital space for strategic buffer space. We'll bombard and destroy any ground-to-orbit defenses. Hiring ground troops is a waste compared to purchasing minerals.>>30841180How many do they have?
>>30841214A small group, maybe 3-5 ships.
>>30841238Cool, thanks.Can we start a long stand order of a continuous flow of minerals at the current price?
>>30841086>5we could use them to jump start are ground force
>>30841086>>5 Hire Ground Battalion of human Mercs (300,000c a cycle)
>>30841086>5 Hire Ground Battalion of human Mercs (300,000c a cycle)we will augment them with our powered armor when we finish them. we will have the best battalion ever!
>>30841326ya from what the power armor said it would make them better then are droids
>>30841086>2We need gas more than anything.How about we hire the mercs for just a single mission instead of continously?When we have something that needs doing, that is.Could we hire them to target a specific UGEI high-up?Or to identify and disrupt particular elements of UGEI's bureaucracy, like where they store records, so that they suddenly lose track of planets and ships and taxes?
>>30841347I rather minerals than gas. We can always build more defense platforms and data-bunkers, are we are about to take 2 gas planets.
>>30841342It could POTENTIALLY make them better than droids.And that's only some droids.In the end, a droid of a certain value will (I think) always be more effective pound-for-pound at shooting and taking damage than a power armored human (because the robot doesn't have to deal with a bunch of squishy bits that will be squished if it takes too much punishment or is penetrated even if the armor is fine or only has minor injuries, like losing a foot) but a human soldier may have more intelligence and imagination, at least until we can effectivize our A.I. to be common enough to have one controlling each droid complement.They also have penalties like fear, unwillingness to kill, lack of willpower, intelligence, perception and reflexes.Unless the power armor is allowed to act independent of commands from its host, a human soldier will nearly always be far, far, far slower (possibly to the point of getting one turn for three droid turns). Again, this is just hypotheticals for me based on what makes sense to me, so it might be different, but I don't really see any way to make power armor more effective in direct combat capability than a droid, due to the necessary weaknesses of carrying a big weak spot inside you and having to carry it around.>>30841387We are? In that case I might concede the point, but if not, I want gas for building more ships (And some troops).Remember that even a full battalion of droids may still only cost as little as a tenth of a destroyer, since they don't have nearly as much mass or processing power.

>>30841961Really? Shit then maybe I am just sick.>>30841811After issuing your orders, you prepare your fleet for assaulting the Rane Expanse. The place is ripe with valuable gas giants which will no doubt come in handy for your fleet. Kronos has taken his chance to pick his own destination to investigate this cycle. Splitting the fleet with Kronos is next on your list, but for now, you calculate the jump coordinates for each location, and prepare to warp.((Sorry about the short thread today, folks. I haven't felt the best today, and I feel like it showered...and it also seemed to be less people around today. I wonder what's up with that.Either way, I hope you enjoyed, I shall be around for feedback comments and questions. All of which are appreciated.Twitter: AIQuest1Archive: http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Program0
>>30842111 allergies come from more than just pollen. dust, mold, pets. you might need to clean up your place could help. you have a fever then? allergies don't give those. well next thread i hope we will face an epic battle.
>>30842086Damn, that is pretty good.>>30842111No idea, but we appreciate it none the less.Hope you get better before you get worse!As always, if anyone wants to discuss the quest or anything from the quest, just google "1d4chan AI Quest".
>>30842111also, just eat well, drink water and real fruit juice. V8 juice works too. get some zinc in you as well. it helps fight infection. don't bother in anti-biotics. oh, and get some bed rest.

>>30844537I quite enjoyed that battle segment myself. Feels more exciting to read it from a point of view like that, instead of as QM.Neat stuff, man. and no I didn't pass out for a little while.
