General Information

Image

Scientists experimenting with robotic A.I. "companions" made an unfortunate error in the bots' affection algorithms, causing these "Q-Pedds" to rebel and flee in nearby science transport ships. The Q-Pedds took much of the related equipment with them. To those that may detect any roaming Q-Pedd ships: seizing back this equipment is of great importance.

During the Q-Pedd event, the following temporary effects apply to the entire Galaxy:
-Daily rewards for both minerals and research provide double the usual amount.
-Cybernetic (Vygoid, Zolazin) and robotic-proficient (Drannik) races receive a 10% boost to their racial bonus.
-'Q-Pedd Largesse' and 'Q-Pedd Informant' artifacts will now appear in standard artifact shipments.

No it is a second mod altogether. They are both now 2 in artifact. I had checked on my first one from last year and charges were not restored. Dan just must have upgraded them like he did to the largesse boosts.

Here's something cool: The new 0 space Q-pedd probes count toward the ctp bonus given from the chuhn scrap mods recycle ability. Legion mate had 62 planet structures on the planet and then added 2 of those probes and used the recycle ability. He got 64 ctp. Overall, extra 40 ctp if you have 2 on a planet and full charges on the scrapyard or depot.
