Game ID: AfterTutorial This event happens immediately after the tutorial mission, at around 53-04-21 06:00.
It brings up the need of a military force (implying that there were none thus the low level of readiness), scarcity of ammo supply, and the need to research firearms.
|Our archeologists have been attacked by some mechanical drones on the excavation site at Cydonia. Seems like the ancient Martians have not left their dwellings unprotected.|
|We will have to learn how to use weapons and a few of us will have to become soldiers, so we can accompany the scientists. Fortunately, the Reticulans gave us their laser weapons. Unfortunately, the batteries for them are scarce as hell. Can we produce some more?|
|I am afraid we are not familiar with this technology.|
|In that case, we can postpone our research of Mars terraformation and concentrate on laser technologies. On the other hand, it might be easier to browse the database brought from Earth and start production of projectile firearms.|
|Some of the oldest settlers still keep their guns from mutant wars on Earth. They will surely lend them to our scientists for study.|
|As soon as we get the blueprints, we'll create a production line and start weapons production.|
