Various nebulae occur in the star systems. Here follows an overview with short explanations.

EMP nebula[]

EMP-Nebel

Overview

In EMP nebulae, depending on the density, only coordinate fragments or no coordinates at all are displayed. In addition, no autopilot works here; an autopilot stops automatically before EMP nebulae. When manually navigating in dense EMP nebulae, the ship may unintentionally veer off course as navigation is disrupted (an EMP-Tracking-Modul, engl. EMP tracking module, can help here).

In addition, ship sensors in EMP nebulae cannot scan beyond their own sector. Thus, ships and asteroids can only be scanned if the scanning ship is in the same sector as the object being scanned. Consequently, if a ship is only one sector away, it cannot be scanned.

Deuterium nebula[]

Deuterium-Nebel

Overview

Deuterium nebulae exist in three different densities. One distinguishes between weak, medium and strong deuterium nebulae.

Deuterium can be extracted from deuterium nebulae by tankers. The denser the nebula, the more deuterium the tanker can extract.

The sensor range of ships in deuterium nebulae is approximately halved.

In addition, ships can hide in deuterium nebulae. Weak nebulae can hide ships up to a size of 4. Medium nebulae can hide ships up to a size of 6. Strong nebulae can hide ships up to a size of 10. If a ship is hidden, it can only be reconnoitered if the reconnoitering ship is on the same hex as the ship being searched.

Damage nebula[]

Schadensnebel

Übersicht aller drei Deuteriumnebel-Konzentrationen (von leicht zu dicht) The Damage nebula exists only in one concentration type (no distinction in weak, medium, strong). The name is derived from the property of the nebula to damage spaceships: Flying into a sector containing a damage fog causes damage. Staying in a damage fog during the tick also causes damage.

Ships up to 8 in size can hide in these nebulae. If a ship is in such a nebula, its sensor range is approximately halved - similar to a deuterium nebula. In addition, no autopilot works here; an autopilot stops automatically in front of damage nebulae.

The sensor range of ships in damage nebulae is reduced.
