    Both can work depending on your self control. It has that just one more thing/turn going for it like civ.

    Definitely bingeable. Sat down to “just do the tutorial” on Sunday; ended up playing for six or seven hours.

    Kinda. Think of this as a Mount and Blade in space.

    Feels more like Escape Velocity to me, but that might just be me dating myself.

    The game is are an extension of that for sure. At least EV Nova which had way more functional background processes.

    Isn't Escape Velocity the reason everyone found EVE?

    I forget how I found EVE, but I know I thought of it as being a bit like an MMO version of Privateer.

    OK I've been playing this pretty much every day as much as I can since I started playing it. It's quite addictive! Already looking forward to my next playthrough with Nexelerin and a bunch of faction mods.

    so... how do I not end up with 0 supplies from just trying to get my fleet in the tutourial and then get completely curbstomped by some badly armed miners in trashy ships?

    Git gud.

    And once you're out of the tutorial, buy a salvage rig. Salvage everything.

    Or get a commision, that will pay for your bills.

    Restarted as I f-ed up badly.
    Completed the tutourial stuff, but now I have the problem that none of the stations sell ANY supplies at all. And I am supposed to go warping to a new system with no supplies. what the hell?

    heeerm there's always supplies in stations... Check the black market too but there should be supplies on both regular and blakc market.

    Nope. All empty. Guess there's some glitch in the tutourial mission system. Ended up having to go interstelar with no supplies. two ships broke on the way but survived somehow.

    Game is confusing but it feels promesing. Now I just need to figure out what to do next...

    Commodity shortage can be a thing, esp. during wartime. If you're low on supplies, mothball unnecessary ships from fleet screen.

    Is a very small fleet, like 2-3 small ships viable for any playstyle? Or will I be forced to build a big fleet even if I go for trader/smuggler/somethingsomething-spaaace?

    It's very much viable. I usually run slightly small fleets, 4-5 Wolfs, one or two destroyers (Hammerheads <3), one tanker, couple of combat freighters and a salvage rig. Explore, scavenge and shadow bigger fleets when you want junk from bigger battles (and you do want it).

    Never had a capital, aside from one salvaged battlecarrier I hauled off to sell to a nearest market.

    Gank hammerhead is

    System overrides + chainguns + hammerhead special activation = facemelting fun.

    Got 4 drovers now to go with it. Fighter spam is also hilarious.

    This game is a free time vacuum however.
