I recently got this game btu I find it moves to slowly. I'm stuck on the mission right after leaving the home system (the one where you get bombers) and i wopuldn't mind replaying if everything weren't so slow. Is there a way to speed things up?
Indeed, the game was never meant to be a COD-style frantic fantastic. It's very lazy with the odd micromanaging.
If you want to speed things up, take a look at my ship editing FAQ on here. It'll tell you how to speed up ships if you're annoyed with anything larger than a frigate taking hours to travel a few hundred kms, and this is particularly effective on resourcers when combined with adding steroids to their resource collection rate. My own resource collectors move at 750m/s, can hold 2000 RUs of resources, and only take about 5 seconds to fill up.
