UPDATE: EGP (ie: the Russians) beat us to Tier 8 (finish line), thanks (in part) to some allocation irregularities. They will receive 6 points towards "Rise" composite score. Most GalCop members didn't receive the same allocation rate of target rare commodity; we'll be receiving 5 points towards "Rise" composite score. Complaints have been lodged, but it's best to move forward. We have until next THU to rest, recuperate, and tend our gardens.
UPDATE: With approximately 24 hours remaining in this Community Goal, it appears that GalCop will place 2nd (barring acts of God/Braben/Thargoids). I'm very proud of SINC; we made a disproportionately large contribution to GalCop (and science). The exact tonnage will be revealed by GalCop in the post-CG analysis. Remember to log all contributions with the GalCop CG Tracker. If you would like to receive a UNIQUE GALCOP COALITION DECAL, please contribute at least 1t of technical blueprints to the GalCop CG (assuming you did not already make a contribution in CG #1).
UPDATE: The CG has come & gone... in less than 8 hours!
The clues were quickly deciphered by multiple parties (including Galcop). The object of our hunt (precious gems) were found in Maiki (34.02 ly from Cubeo). Unfortunately, EGP beat us (in CG #3 and the overall competition). Expect a de-brief, and some discussion about where to go from here, in the near future. Please collect relevant screenshot(s), and submit delivery totals on the GalCop CG Tracker. s7
