# 1 Tour the Galaxy Problems
02-02-2014, 03:46 AM
Tour the Galaxy is now nearly impossible to finish now. I have Borg XII engines and I can't complete it within the 15 minutes time limit. I can't imagine anyone completing it with standard warp engines.

Before 8.5, you guys gave us a full hour. Please put it back the way it was please.

# 2 Mission is no longer worth it
02-02-2014, 04:11 AM
In my opinion, the Tour is no longer worth running. You only have 15 minutes to complete which is nearly impossible to run even with the best of engines. If your pc lags even a little you will lose time. Add to that that the amount of EC you get is smaller than it was, this mission is a complete bust. They really need to keep this at an hour or, for compromise sake, drop it to 30 minutes. This is only my viewpoint and I know that some will agree with this assessment.

I agree, they should at least make it 30 to 45 minutes long instead of the crappy 15 minutes.

Heck. Since it has a 20 hour cooldown might as well make it a 20 hour clock to complete.

I start in the southeast corner of z6
hook through tarod and devron into bolarus and head south
left through teneebia sierra vendor
left through hyralan orias mylasa
when i'm feeling lazy i'll tau dewa transwarp but can just as easily go back to hyralan and head south
left again through azure nimbus narendra
right from mempa hromi xarantine
archanis donatu aldebaren
deferi north to raveh and hook right back to aldebaren
north to risa sector and immediately west to dorvan almatha algira
orias vanden arawath kora
cardassia bajor kalandra
hook left (or change instances) at orion
cut across vulcan sector to argelius
only annoying point is here where you have to spin 180 degrees to go south
through celes and kassae, hook a right
turn right and you'll see the transwarp gate
hit the 4 corners point under sibiran and on to pelia...

If I use slipstreams, tau dewa from mylasa, and instance switch at orion I can finish in under 10 minutes... but I can complete the whole tour without any of that business using a non slipstream warp 22 using [9 driver coil], [borg engines] and a [green mk xi [coi]].

No funky mission transwarps or funky jukes in the route. Just straight out flying.

I thought before BranFlakes left he mentioned that they were looking to address the time that everyone was giving feedback about was way too short?

I think 15 mins is too short, but i do like having a certain time limit that is a bit tight, so that people dont just stroll around. it creates a sense of urgency and having to try and maximise your time.

i think 25 would be ideal, but even 20 would help.

With Borg Engines and full driver coil I managed to do it with 10 seconds to spare, so not a great deal of time to make errors...

I also did it on a toon without the borg engines doing a standard 9.97 and with DI for the slipstream (had no affect on sector speed otherwise) I got no where near, i had 3 sector blocks to complete and would have needed at least another 4 minutes.

My average was about 18 min on the old tour, a more realistic time of 20min would be favourable. Even with Borg Engines and no driver coil I think it wouldnt be possible, so it would mean everyone respecing into driver coil to be able to complete it in full.

It does give about 450,000ec for a full tour so it is more than the old tour, but unfortunately not sufficient to make this worth the effort

I am able to do the tour with 1 minute and 37 seconds left, I also use the borg mkXII engines. Start the tour while in sector space instead of club 47. It makes a great difference.
Some people use the transwarp to mission trick, but I don't do that.

Maybe you are doing something wrong?

The tour is now perfect as it is for me

I can also do it with Assimilated X engines and max Driver Coil skill on my Fed Rom in a Risian Corvette.

ETA: Just did it KDF Side with the same engines and DC skill in a Fleet B'Rel; with about 5 seconds to spare.
