Maybe work orders should change to something simpler after you've done the first one on each ship.
Edit: I'm glad I made this post. It makes the chaos just a little more bearable to know I'm not alone and other people can relate. Thank you.
Higher tier missions are an especial pain.
Not because of the sheer amount of tasks needed, that's part of the fun. The way the barge currently works is every intersection of green lines can hold a single item. There's so many, you wouldn't think you'd ever run out. But on your third shift on a Tier 6 gecko, and you've got 30+ electronics down on the barge and another 15 chairs, plus all the thrusters and explosive canisters, mechanicals, etc etc, it gets difficult to actually lock items down.
Instead, if they hit an area where there isn't an immediately available grid, they bounce and get launched into space. This can make some of the higher tier checklists unnecessarily difficult, on the sole fact that you can accidentally destroy the item by not being extra careful when placing it. This is plain not fun. Simply having the barge empty after a shift would make some of the longer checklists much more fluid in the long-game.
That or clear them at the end of the day. There's no reason to have so much random shit down there since i can't interact with it any way- might as well just clear it out so my performance is better.
So right off the bat, I have my nipples pierced and a couple hidden tattoos, most “scandalous” is an outline of a heart on my ass cheek.
My fiancé and I were visiting his parents, making sure they were alright etc. My mil had a rule that when we arrive, we strip, take a shower and she’ll give us clothes to wear in the house. A little wild but it’s ok it makes her feel more comfortable.
I was changing into the clothes she gave me when she walked into the room and saw me butt ass naked, meaning she saw all my bits and pieces including the previously mentioned nipple piercings and tattoo on my ass.
Instead of acting embarrassed like a normal person, she stood in the open doorway and started berating me, saying how she couldn’t believe I had modified my body in this way and how now I wasn’t a suitable wife for her son. I’m gonna be someone’s mother one day and they’re going to have to live with their mother being a “whore” with a tattoo on her butt.

I know the title is clunky, but basically
1 Thousand Sons battle barge
1 World Eaters battle barge
Etcetera. Each legion is from a time after they met their Primarch, but before the inciting incident that led them to falling to Chaos. The World Eaters are pre-Nails.
I can see it going one of several ways; the Mechanicus killing all the astartes to get their hands on the ships, the Imperium deciding they are too much of a risk and deciding to kill them, or the Imperium deciding that they are too useful to purge and pardoning them from the crimes of their brothers.
I am also not sure how far the Traitor Legions would go to regain their lost brothers--any speculation on that would be welcome, too!
My crazy entitled aunt, whom you all know so well by now had an annoying habit (one of her many annoying habits) to just storm in when I was changing my clothes. The door would be closed and if it wasn't locked she would just let herself in. My protests that I may be in a state of undress fell on deaf ears. As did any insistence that she knock before enterence, like a civilised human being.
The following incidents happened when I was either 18 or 19. Aunt and her husband were over for a visit. I was in my room , changing my clothes. My bedroom door had a small defect, it wouldn't lock properly. So anytime it was closed, my dad , step mom and step brother would either knock or ask if they could come in.
Not entitled aunt, of course. She considered herself above such frivolous courtesies. She could come into rooms as and we she saw fit and mere mortals would just have to live with it. Unfortunately for her , this mere mortal had had enough of her privacy being invaded.

Nixon walks onto the set with roaring applause from the audience and then takes a seat
"Welcome to the Tricky Dick Show where I, Richard Nixon will be interviewing members of the TNO Dev Team and the TNO Community Itself.."
"Now let's introduce our first guest.."
Barge walks in with applause from the Audience and takes a seat... (N=Nixon and B=Barge)
N: Alright so first introduce yourself to the people in the Audience who don't know who you are...
B: I'm Barge, former Team Lead of Project Lifeguard and currently a contributor for Germany, a greytide for Germany and Burgundy, and an editor. I was originally a greytide for Iberia back in late 2019
N: Alright so first question, how did you come to discover TNO?
B: So I first discovered it while browsing reddit. Someone mentioned it in a comment thread. I'm pretty sure the thread was in /r/kaiserreich. I was really bored so I went to check out the TNO subreddit. And at first I sorta just assumed that it was going to be some sort... keep reading on reddit ➡
"Quick, everyone!" the man shouts. "Big Frank is coming!"
A panic ensues. Chairs are thrown as people try desperately to be the first to leave. One mother just drops her baby on the floor, picks up her skirts, and runs. Several people are badly injured, but eventually the young lad is the only one left. He decides to stay. If he beats this so-called Big Frank, he'll be a hero.
After waiting for a solid hour, he finally hears a horse's hooves on the ground outside. Soon, the largest man he has ever seen is squeezing through the door. He has an enormous moustache and a smell that almost makes the young lad throw up.
"Gimme a whiskey!" bellows the man. Trembling, the lad pours the man a drink. He knocks it back in one gulp. "Gimme another!"
The lad ends up giving the man nine drinks, after which the man still looks totally sober. "Another!" he yells.
"You-- You have to pay for the drinks you've already had," stutters the lad. The man stares the lad right in the eye. "I'll make you a... keep reading on reddit ➡
As others talked about in the comments of this thread, the barge gets crowded. This can lead to funny, memorable moments, like that time a sparking computer console set off the big reactor and scared the ever-lovin' space Texan outta me! Buuut it can also get aggravating when salvage is lost because the barge is too full.
So many resources already get refilled between shifts; could we also start out fresh shifts with a fresh salvage flypaper?
My mom's been randomly barging into my room all day with bullshit excuses and right now, she just picked a fight with me over water. It started with saying that I need to drink more water, and then it escalated to her saying that I can't do anything right in my life and how I'm mental and insane. (???) She said that my life is all wrong even though I'm perfectly fine...
She gestured around my room as if to say that the state of my room is an indication of my life being screwy, except my room is actually cleaner and more organized than hers (thanks to Marie Kondo!). I'm 22f. I can drink my own fucking water when I want to, thanks. And I take good fucking care of myself.
She kind of reminds me of that kid who lashes out on the playground because nobody will play with her... if only she showed a bit of vulnerability by saying "I'm lonely" or "I wish we did things together" instead of calling me a fucked up bitch with no future.
I think I have a pretty good handle on how the barge works, exactly - there's a grid of points in it where salvaged items go, stuff you punt into the barge snaps to that grid, if all the local grid nodes are already occupied at the place the object hits the barge it just bounces off instead - but I'm finding myself constantly frustrated by attempts to put stuff in the barge once it's already reasonably populated. Often stuff doesn't seem to grab even when there's a clear space for it, which is especially egregious for small items like door consoles since with the gentlest of punts they tend to bounce off with enough velocity that you might as well forget about them.
Managing the precise placement of items in the barge isn't fun (especially all those sodding chairs on the commercial gecko, if you've gone to the tedious effort of detaching them). I'd prefer something that behaved more like the furnace/processor inputs - get it into the barge's grab area, and then the barge forcefields m... keep reading on reddit ➡
Add a cruise ship/party barge type boat that is constantly moving around the map and works as a roaming outpost. Not sure if it should show on the map or not but if not it could be a fun surprise to run into - should also have some exclusive cosmetics available only there
In eugene or springfield. Any celebrations?
Last night working on day 2 of a industrial Gecko.
Trying to knock off the low hanging fruit work orders so I'm flinging seats down to the barge with reckless abandon.
All the sudden the screen starts to brighten and I hear "Explosion detected" looking around for what it could be since everything explosive should have been stowed I look "down" and sure enough the explosion is centered around where the reactor had been stowed the previous shift.
Only thing I can think of is I must have bounced a chair off it, setting it off.
Thankfully those raving idiots at Lynx Corp didn't seem to notice and didn't deduct the reactor from my pay :D
