That's strange, I've never had your private sector fuel problem. And I build exploration and military ships nearly constantly at the start of the game. As for the tech tree, what do you mean by needing much bigger tech trees?

I have played without freighters, its pain but i alot better handle resources and of course its not as fast as freighters handle their jobs.
If you know how to set it up. I can make a ten year explorer vessel without having to refuel again while exploring in a huge galaxy. Playing on a single planet is no problem with the private sectors, once you expand, you will start having problems regardless. Again sometimes the constructors doesnt do their job, they sit there do nothing. So i cancel their mission and try again, sometimes it still doesnt do it. So i scrap the base and redo it, it finally worked. I did checked to make sure the constructors had enough resources what they are building. The game still have problems though.
Your sentence still makes no sense. Why bother quoting it, if you aren't going to explain it?
If I know how to set what up?
Ten year explorer vessel exploring in a huge galaxy, you just written. Not sure why. Bears no connection to anything I have written. Explains why you run out of fuel though, since that one ship will require the fuel of thousands of freighter trips. Not sure how you have enough fuel tanks on a 230 size ship for ten years though. Not sure why you insist on my having problems with fuel. Like I said before, I don't have fuel problems, and I grab every colony as soon as I can find one, and research the colonisation techs as quickly as possible.
Never seen constructors not doing their jobs and having to cancel their mission and scrap base to try again, then it works, at least not since unpatched original Distant Worlds.
Well Plant, i dont really appreciate what you doing, esp flaming my thread. For one thing you dont seem to be vetern player here. If you have been around since first DW and reading most topics from veteran players, you may understand what i am talking about. Not sure where you are from, some countries have problems understand others. I am not trying to be rude and getting confusing between us.
Anyway for the ten years explorer ship (custom made), make a resupply ship and put couple gas mining engines along with 3-5k cargo holds. Once it complete look for a planet have decent fuel that matches your engines. Note dont mine off gas planet that have carsons and Hydrogen (not sure if i spell that right), the reasons it will mix it up and take up cargo holds. So if you stick with carsons that your ship is using carson engine, every time the fuel get low it will refuel it up automatically and you can keep exploring for very long time. Now in some points, sometimes when the fuels get low and your ship in orbit, it can reroute to nearest fuel station to refuel, so you have to pay attention. One more thing, make sure to add explorer probe device on that ship so you can read the details on those uncharted planets.
Commander Data, are you around, can you back me up here. This player doesnt understand what we do incase the private sector doesnt do their jobs well. I noticed you mention making a cruiser with mining engines to mine off important resources that needed most. I couldnt find that thread you mention. Any other feedbacks will be helpful and for other players as well.
It's your thread is it? You are the opening poster, so I have to dance to your fiddle is it? Sorry to rain on your parade, but I am not obliged to agree with anything you say. I have not insulted you, implied or otherwise, so you calling me a flamer to detract from the points I have raised about your nonsensical posting. As to being a veteran poster, or lack of it, up till now, I felt welcomed by the forum community despite the low post count, which was refreshing. I am sure everybody else will agree that a low post count, and in your case, a higher post count does not detract from one's reasoning and arguments that can be placed forth.
So I have to ask you again. For the third time. As someone who understands English; how do you play without freighters, you cannot disable them.
As for this 10 year explorator ship, and supply ships, and gas mining and cargo holds, I still have no idea why you have written it as bears no connection to anything I have written. Not to mention that it relies on a level 3 technology as well as building the infrastructure to set up. I say one thing, you say something totally unrelated. Then make a plea to a noninvolved third person and refer to me as this player.
Why don't you use your own self professed command of the English language to explain yourself, instead of disparaging pother's understanding of English and asking others to explain for you.
