    [O - H06] A Needed Break

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // It had been a very busy time of late and I wanted to get out a bit and just relax and have some fun. It was exciting that we'd recently discovered Awesomnium Alloy, but I just wanted to turn off my brain for a little bit. Luckily one of the new prototype racecars was available (helps being an exec!). So I went out to one of our testing facilities outside Farmolis City and took it out for a spin. The robo-engineer gave me the quick overview and checked that all systems were nominal before I headed out. It was great getting to really let it loose and have some time alone. It wasn't that long ago that I wouldn't have been as comfortable in such a high powered vehicle, but I think I've grown a lot since joining Octan! Extra Pics: I even put some lights underneath! See all the photos I took!

    [O - H06] Testing ground

    PREVIOUSLY : intro Hadvice : Professor why are we on Farmorlis... You're expected to be on Forring meeting with a counselor... So do I ! Professor Thaum : I don't give a shit of this meeting Hadvice, what do you believe ! If a counselor wanted to see me, it is for bargaining about my research advance and aving good news of the bunch of credits these penpushers allowed to me... and my radionic detector still not working. That's why we are here... for a test, Hadvice. And nothing better for my test as the Octan Awesomium First Pit Coporate Park. Here we are professor, should we land on the nearby walkway ? I have to remind you that there must be an automated warden. Yes we land on the walkway, don't worry of the warden, Hadvice, all is already planned. Just trust. We just have to unlade the container and not waste time to make a quick assembling of the various components. Errr... professor, the light emitting diode are flickering green and red. I didn't touch anything except unboxing !! Don't worry Hadvice, the radionic CPU simply checking the data links, and nothing is connected yet. You have to finish the micro power plant, and I will carefully take care of the awesomium sensing head

Bruce is going to test pilot his new open cockpit jetfighter design. It's a motorcycle!!! There you go with your usual nonsense, Eshey. It's not a motorcycle. IT IS A MOTORCYCLE AND HE'S GOING TO DRIVE IT OFF A CLIFF!!! I appreciate your concern, Ms. Kolai, but I'm pretty confident about this one! See you back at headquarters. Drinks are on me! But, wait... Here I go! Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

    [O - H06] A Warm Farewell

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // I wanted to show our guest Raylan a good time before he had to depart back for Mantis space. They needed him to return to work and though I was sad to see him go, I understood that work has to be a priority. I thought we could have a big sendoff though, so I booked the reception center at the Academy of Sciences and we invited lots of people from Farmolis and beyond. Our friends from the Farr-tes even managed to make their way to the party! Despite the Octan desire to largely have reliable robots perform mundane tasks, I wanted to make sure this party was extra special so I actually had real human waiters! It certainly seemed like everyone had a great time and Raylan especially was grateful for our warm farewell. Extra Pics: ** Happy 1 year of build weeks to AG!!! ** ** I wanted to make this for weeks and finally found the time. The style aesthetic is definitely me and it is very clean. Plus I wanted to have a party to celebrate. ** ** Oh and those SoNE players might recognize a cameo from my player in that game ** I took a lot of pics this week, for all of them you can hit my Flickr stream:

    [O - G07] Cutting edge technnology

    Spencer's Diary - 31 Maian 3815. I'm on board the OCS 'Your paycheck could depend on this', on approach to Hennigan II. Unit Manager Dorkness has been looking for ways to get back at me since I ran over the CEO's cat during his recent visit to Quantus III. He was certainly sniggering when he told me to report to Dr. Blomkampf in the Engineering Bay for a new assignment. I can't think why, the Doc seems like a decent enough old buffer, even if he does have his head in the clouds. Anyway I'm just about to find out. "Ah! You must be the test driver Mr. Dorkness mentioned. Do come in, I think you’ll be most interested in what I have to show you.” “What would interest me, Doc, is anything that will save me days of traipsing around the landscape looking for water sources.” “I see. Well, if my calculations are correct, I may have just that. I’ve recently been studying the unique properties of Awesomnium when combined with lignin and cellulose composites…” “Come again?” “Wood.” “Oh, right.” “Please don’t interrupt my train of thought. It turns out that if you insert Awesomnium fibres into wooden materials, they generate a natural resonance field that is perturbed by the presence of nearby bodies of water. Optimize the geometry and movement of the field, and this perturbation translates into physical vibrations that can be detected by the highly sensitive equipment I’ve incorporated into my specially modified Div-9R walker. YOU are going to be the first to test this remarkable cutting edge technology in the wild!” “So… you want me to search for water by waving a pointy stick?” “If you want to put it like that, yes.” “And I suppose this walker is equipped with defenses against any possible hostile alien lifeforms? “Oh dear me no! Any such thing would disrupt my delicate instruments. But you do get a roof in case of inclement weather.” "Gee thanks Doc..."

    [O - H06] From Farmolis to Fascini

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Unfortunately, I had to depart Farmolis for The Fascini Cluster an asteroid orbiting Farmolis. However, I left Raylan with Dr. Allison and they decided to go into downtown Farmolis City and enjoy some of the nightlife. We are very lucky to live in a time when people from all different groups can come together and enjoy a fun time out. I was glad that Dr. Allison could take him out for a fun night out so he wouldn't be bored by himself. Meanwhile I had headed out to inspect one of our latest research/monitoring stations on one of the larger asteroids in The Fascini Cluster orbiting Farmolis. I used one of the little service vehicles aboard the ship that took me out to the asteroid field to reach the location. It wasn't very big, but the information we obtain from stations like this one help us refine our Awesomnium location and collection process. And if there is one thing Dr. Long espouses it is efficiency! **Not trying to get too political, just figured I could work in something from real world into my storyline ** Extra Pics:

    [O - H06] Octansoft Store

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // Raylan was really enjoying his visit to Farmolis. He said that it was nice to be able to visit other planets and see the different sights. He seemed very excited when I mentioned that there were several Octansoft stores in downtown Farmolis and that they had all the latest items available. And luckily being an executive I get a special discount of 5%, unlike the usual 2.5% discount for other employees. And since I have an Octansoft credit card I get an extra .5% discount! Although the folks in accounting do say that taking a discount isn't quite stealing from the company, but it does take money away from the company that it would otherwise use to pay hard workers such as myself. So I usually don't use the full discount. I took him to the one nearest to us and he was very excited to see all the various Individual Personal Assistant Devices and other electronics. It was neat getting to see the various assistant robots too, Dr. Allison was most intrigued by the child sized model as it was brand new. I was surprised they had a chauffeur-bot in stock since there was a new version that everyone was going crazy for. I have to say it was a bit weird seeing some of the "fashion" that exists for the younger generation these days. Whatever neo-hip style they seem to be wearing just looks strange. I was a little embarassed to have Raylan see them as I felt it reflected poorly on Octan. But I think he was distracted by the various Octansoft offerings to not have noticed them too much!

    [O - H06] Visiting Farmolis

    Location: H06 Farmolis Tags: Land Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // After having several productive days getting to know Raylan on Forring, I had decided that to further improve the relationship between our two corporations I should invite him to Farmolis. Initially he was a bit apprehensive as there was a certain amount of worry that there could be some nefarious reason for wanting to get him to our home planet. But after more discussion and assurances he finally agreed to pay a visit. Upon his arrival I picked him up from the spaceport in one of our luxury corporate transports and had ED-208 drive so I could concentrate on our guest. As we drove around the city I was able to point out various landmarks and talk about all the things Octan was doing. Raylan was excited to hear and he found numerous areas that our two corporations could successfully collaborate. I'm excited to show him around further! Extra Pics: Oops, just noticed I forgot to update the planet in the title. Should be H06, got so used to F03 I forgot it wasn't there...
  15. Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // As I was conversing with Professor Fizzlebottom on one of the above ground landing platforms the Farr-tes use I received quite the shock when a Mantis pilot stepped out of a spacecraft and began talking to Dr. Grenouille-Cheveux. As it turns out Octan wasn't the only corporation to have interaction with the Farr-tes. Apparently Mantis was providing fuel to the Farr-tes at barely above cost to help them with all the people they take in. Despite being such a militaristic corporation, Mantis apparently saw the benefits the Farr-tes and their more peaceful, inclusive society offered. I was introduced to the pilot, Raylan Givens, and he seemed very nice. I asked about his spaceship since it hardly seemed standard Mantis issue. Apparently it was his personal ship and he had recently completed an engine upgrade. Where before his ship was a comfortable cruiser, he had removed the original engine and fitted it with a Mantis Class B cargo hauler engine which more than tripled the power. He said it made getting around a rather fun ordeal now. I was surprised that a logistical supply officer would personally oversee the transfer of the fuel canisters, but he said that it gave him a break from sitting behind a desk. The Farr-tes hover truck was sleek looking and I was surprised that it looked so sporty. Professor Fizzlebottom explained that they based a lot of their vehicles around a common design and altered it based on need. This one was made narrow to allow for use underground where space was an issue and that it could either be used to carry heavier loads as it was currently, or if it was lightly loaded it could achieve high speeds as a speeder. An impressive solution to the need for different purposes in their vehicle fleet. Raylan summed it up when he said: "They are a most clever bunch, we learn from them constantly." Dr. Grenouille-Cheveux then suggested we all go have a meal together and continue to learn more about each other. Extra Pics: Hover truck and hover cargo mover Raylan's Ship Functional Landing Gear!

    Location: F03 - Forring Tags: Spaceship Dramatis Personae: Previously: http://www.eurobrick...howtopic=132578 Currently, on Forring... Let me get this straight: you want to register for the Kawashita Underground Racing Circuit? That's right. You know that Kawashita and the Dust Demons aren't exactly on friendly terms, right? Is she saying that we aren't good enough for their fancy racing club? I think she's too scared to race against us. Shut up, you two! Ignore them. If Kawashita has an issue with us Dust Demons, let's settle it by racing. I don't know. What do you think, Sue? I say why not? First, you need more racers after Ishmael scared most of your regulars off. Second, this is illegal underground racing, anyway. Yes, yes, I know Kawashita makes money off the registration fees and takes a commission on the gambling, but if the Space Police ever busted you, Kawashita would disavow any knowledge of this. So it's not like this is some sort of formal agreement between Kawashita and the Dust Demons. That's true. So your answer is? Alright, here are the forms. Be sure to have your credits ready. Did you bring your ride? It's right here. Alright, get ready. You'll be racing in heat 16. Let's go, boys. Captain, be careful. Show 'em who's boss, Captain! ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ YES!!! YESSS!!! WHEW...FAPPIE...LET'S DO IT AGAIN!!! Yes, Master... Comments and criticisms are all welcome!

    Location: E03 Tags: Exploration (first encounter with alien animal, I think) Yikes! This has got to be the hottest planet I've ever been on! I'm literally sweating through this air conditioned spacesuit! I know what you mean, Whipper. It's even worse than that time I went diving into a volcano trying to fish out my lunch bag! We really oughtter measure this temperature! That just looks like a stick to me... This here is one of the most effective thermometers you are ever gonna see, Whipper. Stick it up in the sand now, will ya? Okay... 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004... Oh look, Granny! Here comes an alien life form! Don't interrupt! 1005, 1006 - I'll loose count! - 1007 - and there she goes! Yikes! Yep. It took until 1010 that time I went into the volcano. Hey, whatever happened to that alien life form? You mean the Ertauq Chicken? That's what it was? Yeah, anyways. That thing. Right here! After getting sick and missing the eyeball soup this morning, I'll bet you're ravenous. You know, Granny, I do think I'll try a bite... That's the spirit! I wonder what they're thinking back at headquarters. In fact, I wonder how we're going to get back. And what about the mission we're supposed to be on? Whipper, you aren't gonna get very far if you're always stuck to the end of Lord Business' tie. I haven't been roaming the galaxy for 67 years by listening to what my bosses say. But... you know... maybe we should just try to get back in contact... Oh... maybe... tomorrow. To be continued!

    [O - F03] A Friend Returns

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // While Dr. Allison and I were taking a tour of one of the Farr-tes advanced scientific research facilities we were awaiting the return of ED-208. He had received a full overhaul and we were told to expect him via one of the mini-ships Octan uses for robot delivery. The ships aren't very spacious and lack food and restrooms, but they are very efficient and reusable. The lab was very advanced and had access to vast computing power. In one of their experiments they were superheating Awesomnium into a gas to see how it behaved and then were going to try combining that with other elements to see what the result was. Mike was working in the small updraft lab which prevented any vapors from escaping without being hermetically sealed. They weren't running any experiments at the moment so he was able to show off the lab and the various features. I'll definitely have to make sure we get some like this installed on the Axle!

    [O - F03] Space Madness

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // The Aeolus recovered the Octan ship and were able to retrieve the pilot. Sadly the pilot wasn't in great shape. Physically he seemed relatively ok, but mentally he was struggling. As an executive of Octan I was quite concerned with his health and safety, Dr. Allison seemed interested in him as a test case. Based on logs we determined his name was Joel Zimmerman, however, all he would say is "Can you hear the screams?" The Farr-tes said it seemed likely that he had developed a minor case of Spontaneous Space Madness. They said that with some sedation and rest he would most likely be fine. Luckily they had human medical knowledge and a facility on planet that could help him. We have already been fortunate to have an alliance with them! Extra Pics:

    [O - F03] An Unexpected Surprise

    Location: F03 Forring Tags: Land Vehicle, Space Vehicle, Civil Building, Science Previously... // PERSONAL DIARY // We were taken to the Farr-tes main engineering research facility on Forring to see some of their newest projects. It was an exciting time as we were given complete access and were able to ask any questions we wanted. The Farr-tes are a very open and forthcoming people, they really don't hold back. Dr. Allison was looking at one of their new energy producing units that is still under construction. She seemed very impressed and I could see from the twinkle in her eye that many new ideas were forming. I can't wait to hear what she came up with. She had already seen their mobile graviton detection "cart". It was on a track that lead to an isolation room which allowed for the sensitive equipment to more finely tune into detecting the particles. I was being given a chance to look over their magnetic impulse engines used primarily in smaller vehicles. Because they were non-polluting it meant that they were best suited for their underground existence. The power output was strong, but the main draw was the instant high-torque. Even the waste heat was fairly small and easily managed. One issue they were trying to overcome was that the units did malfunction sometimes and end up in a runaway situation. The good news is that the characteristic hum would suddenly get very quiet, so you knew it could get deadly if they went silent. Sadly our visit was cut short as we were notified that the Farr-tes Regional Transport Ship Aeolus had informed the local Farr-tes naval control that a distress signal had been detected from an Octan ship. We were given access to a communication device and the message was the standard Octan distress signal for our smaller ships: "Greetings, this automated message is from Octansoft on behalf of Octan Pilot. It appears there has been a problem and currently there are zero pilots able to command the ship. We are requesting your assistance in rendering aid. Thank you and have an Octan day!" Extra Pics:
  24. On Farmolis my home is the Octan Science Facility and Dormitories. It was designed to resemble the rockets of early manned space flights. At the base of the tower is a lovely pond with various local flora and fauna creating a very peaceful mood while also being a reminder of our scientific purpose. The building itself is massive and we have a lovely park surrounding us. There are 4 buildings around the facility that house restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. It allows us to get away from work without having to go very far. Which has come in handy many times when you suddenly have a thought and don't want to lose it! As an executive I've been assigned a housing berth in the upper red zone. It affords a fantastic view of the surrounding area and the park and grounds below are nicely lit up at night. I enjoy taking walks around the base of the facility and listening to the Growler Frogs and gazing at the Dragonfish in the pond. It is an incredible luxury to be stationed in such a cutting edge building while still having an opportunity to wander into the park below for some quiet solitude to do some contemplation.
