Help: Security Ratings
All sectors in Star Conquest possess a certain security rating. This security rating has a primary rating, which goes from 'Alpha' to 'Delta.' Alpha sectors are safest, while Delta sectors are the least safe.
Sectors also have a secondary numerical rating. Generally, a lower number is safer. The primary exception to this is 'Delta' space, where a lower number is, in fact, less safe. In short, a lower number further magnifies the qualities of the primary rating.
The security ratings and their differences are listed below.
- Alpha (1): This security rating possesses space-based defense weaponry and the local navy is always on standby, able to launch at a moment's notice. Even hatch cracking and the launching of deployable weaponry is defended against.
- Beta (1-5): While lacking in space-based defenses, Beta sectors are protected by alliance navies and the ports serve all non-hostile pilots. Sectors that are rated 'Beta-2' or greater generally provide flight control reports to the public flight control scanner.
- Gamma (1-4): Gamma sectors have no protection from alliance navies, but are still controlled by alliances. As the Gamma rating increases, the ports become pickier and pickier, first only serving allies and finally only serving their own pilots. Some areas of Gamma space are influenced by localized conquest results.
- Delta (10-0): Delta sectors are lawless areas of space controlled by various factions. Alliances are ignored in lieu of factional ties. One thing to note is that the space is considered more dangerous as the Delta number decreases.
