||Hi Newbies, The Riding the Comet event is run sometimes twice a year and is generally a pretty easy event to complete IF you are prepared.|
So what do you need to do to prepare?
Here is how you can get the launch preps
|Launch Prep||Fly To||Visit|
|Field Ration||N/A||Training Center, Cosmic Fuel Station, MCC1, Launch Pad 1|
|Treadmill||N/A||Training Center, lots of neighbor res buildings, Stone Castle in your city|
|Lab Notebook||Cape Canaveral (owl), Baikonur (hawk), North Observatory, South Observatory||Training Center|
|Space Suit||Cape Canaveral (owl), Baikonur (hawk), North Observatory, South Observatory||Training Center|
At first glance, this mission will look impossible - 10 launches in 7 days when launches take 24 hours (update for April 2021 event - only 1 launch is required this time).
But don't despair ... there is a bonus called a Quantum Leap. When you attach one to a launch, the launch time is reduced by 90%. Attach another one, the launch time is further reduced another 90%. With 3 QL bonuses attached to a launch, the rocket returns in under a minute and a half.
During this event, lots of seasoned players will coordinate 3QL and even 4QL launches to help people complete the event. Watch the launch chat room for QL "parties" and get in on the action.
When you do join a QL party during this event, DON'T PUT IN A LOT OF FUEL! The goal here is to get as many people in the launch as possible so people can finish the event. Add liquid fuel (2 points) or solid fuel (12 points) at most to keep space open for others to join.
