what about the mad vasari titan?
Oh, I failed to realize this was an event until I got that today, and forgot you already mentioned it here.
It is a particularly fun thing early game, can mess up your plans pretty easily, I like it.
The extractors in this gravity well seem to give more resources than normal
Yes, like the Ice field, increased income, though the shattered moon has less income than other neutral extractors would.
I guess the main thing about the graveyard was putting another dead asteroid type object in the game that actually gives some income (next to the pirate base). We already had various objects giving unique amount and variation of resources, but we did not have a no population, only extractors type of thing before this.
Also what is the point of the graveyard? A whole bunch of derelict ships and you can't salvage them or board them. Unless I am missing something.
It is a graveyard for a reason, those ships found here are not really useful now, they can only be used as resources for another ships now. At least in my understanding.
