How about just put it up on Dropbox (or your favorite file sharing site), then?

Make it hidden (or whatever it's called) and just post the link here. Only people on this forum will ever see it.

A case study of confirmation bias, is how it came out.

Been playing on and off for about 8 months. Came back to it last week after a few months away. Haven't had a single C-shaped sector path, have been caught up with by the fleet once (due to a minor miscalculation in how far the fleet would advance) and even on the final stage of the Flagship, wasn't troubled by the ASB. Didn't even realise it was there and firing at me until I read the warning at the top of the screen moments before my final volley slammed into the rebels.

What irks me is when >50% of the beacons you visit in a sector involve either no event, no reward, or a trade you don't want to partake in. The latter is something AE has really ramped up with the introduction of 'taverns', upgrade systems, missile trades for hull repair and my least favourite, the "swap fuel, missiles and drones for one reactor bar".

Combine that with a sector where the exit beacon is almost 3/4 of the way in, and you can run desperately low on scrap.

I agree, empty beacons and events like that are frustrating to the experienced player, but the vast majority of those events are in green sectors, so you can avoid those sectors if you want a little more consistency. Green sectors can be by far the best or by far the worst, depending on how the beacons are laid out and whether you happen to choose the right ones.

Hello there! :) Here's a trailer:

But since this thread is dealing with another topic, please refrain from asking your questions here. A simple search on youtube or a search engine may have helped you well. ;)

Nebula sectors can also be pretty bad because they have more empty spaces then most (4 according to the wiki), as well as a bunch of events where you need upgraded pilot, sensors or Slugs in order to get a blue option, otherwise you leave empty-handed. Still, being prepared is what this game is about...

That's true, but since you have more jumps in a nebula, things tend to average out a little better. I've had one or two green sectors where I got two fights out of the whole thing, and that just isn't going to happen in a nebula.

In fairness to green sectors, the abandoned sector is far worse for that. Aside from the sparse beacon layout which often forces you to miss beacons and the total lack of nebulae (in my experience), It's full of those new events which are clever, well-written, and utterly unhelpful to the player.
