Hmmm. Rynn pinged me about this, so some thoughts from me. Depending on how you look at this from a socio-cultural background, "money" as universal value tokens may have a more or less present not...

Another analysis tidbit because those "backlinks" heading from nexus points back towards the root node didn't leave me alone - I *think* under OA maximum time dilation for wormholes with at most a gam...

Post: RE: Reworking the Inner Sphere Wormhole Nexus

I don't think sending the linelayer off later would work. That would cause a crash, since one linelayer will travel at relativistic speeds longer than the other. But one linelayer could fly a spiralin...

Post: RE: Reworking the Inner Sphere Wormhole Nexus

A second quick note I will make is, that the fully connected graph where systems are bridged directly to each other, has a very fast growth rate of wormhole links for the number of connected stars. Fu...
