Default Re: The Non-violent High Score List

22,963 - actual no-shots-fired (didn't mount weapons) - large map - no mirror use or other mischief (I did plow some nebula to very good effect - got me the hyperdrive!) - was doing considerably better until I got surrounded and lost a couple of ships and my hyperdrive with them - ended up being nearly a year late (1000 point fine).

Default Re: The Non-violent High Score List

34,749 - complete non-violence of any kind, large map, science ship - Didn't find a mirror. There were several systems I had to leave alone because I had no way to deal with the violent meanies there, so in theory I could've done rather better if I had the mirror.

What do you mean by "sending people into a black hole"?
I have found the mirror, but I can only transport myself, not others.
Or am I missing something?

7967, Small, Large Nebula and enemy strength

YAY! I finally have an achievement

And in response to your question tinkthank...

Get the mirror, find a black hole, stand on it. Use the mirror on another ship to switch places with him so he's now in the black hole. Done.

I wouldn't call that "non-violent"...
On the contrary, that's mean!!!

What's your best score acheived without firing a single shot?
Note: Use of either the vacuum collapser or the chromium gong is prohibited!
36,474 (large, large, science), but it doesn't count.

I even used the mirror to save a Tan-ru fleet from a supernova.
I read today of an interpid explorer who rescued a fleet from a nova. The last planet in my travels went nova. It was soon to destroy both a jumbo shrimp and an alien homeworld. The death toll was to be considerable. It was fated to happen, and there was nothing I could do but watch as two worlds full of life burned. As a non-violent scientist, I just could not watch as those worlds that I'd so patiently explored would go up in a violent cloud of flame.

I set off the Limited Vacuum Collapser.

It just seemed the kindest thing to do! I was the one who traded their hyperdrives for a crystalline entity. I was the one who traded their thrusters for some old bauble. I was the one who ran off with the navigator, never to return. What choice did I have? Let them burn alive in the flames of a nova? Using the collapser saved them from the violence of nature.

After the nova exploded, I folded to the now-dead planet and set the collapser for 100 turns. Folding away, I paused at a nearby planet to remember what I'd done. A pang of regret hit me as the collapser went off inside the expanding ring of the nova; the fireworks will haunt me forever.
