The Quine 5000 is like a really powerful personal computer that you can use too

  • your missions
  • save
  • load a different save
  • check yours stats with the different groups
  • check what is in your manifest (cargo hold)

To use the Quine 5000 you first have to be on a planet, base, or on your ship in space just not at the controls (example: Loye naval base) than while in or out of your ship press [C] a new window will pop up with multiple options

When you first open the Quine 5000 the first page it will be open to is the news page, in the bottom right there are three option

  • War news
  • Trade news
  • All news

You can look through these and see news about the fighting between different factions (example: Pirates, Confederates, Kilrathi) and the news about trading (examples: trade stopping, new trading) obviously know what Save and Load will do, If you click on missions it will change the part on the left to a display with mission one, to look at different missions click on the right or left arrow keys that appear on the right. If you click Manifest it will give you a list of everything in your hold and if you have any passengers. If you press Stats it will bring up a list underneath it will display a large amount of options

  • Kills
  • Skills

You can figure out what all of these are by the names. If you press Sector it will bring up a map almost identical to the Nav when in space but with two new option, after you click Sector underneath that 2 new buttons appear Trade and Maps when you click on Maps two new options will appear Sector and System these work just like they do in the Nav.
