We chose shipbuilding because of several reasons:
1. Because this allows us to cater to nearly all roles that exist in the game.
2. It is one of the most prestigious things that can be done in the metaverse. We will start small, but it is our goal to one day create mothership class ships!
3. It speaks to people’s imagination. Mining ore and selling that is a fine goal in itself, but creating spaceships has a little more flair to it.
There is a good chance we will, but only if we are able to create it in such a way that it becomes a highly interesting and enticing proposition to our members.
This DAC has been created solely to participate in the metaverse that is Star Atlas. There are no plans to extend to other games in the future, but it would be short-sighted to completely rule that out.
Because we like to keep ourselves grounded in the rich lore that is present in Star Atlas. A little in-fiction roleplay never hurt nobody, in fact we believe it enriches the whole experience!
We’re not that kind of company, it’s the year 2621 after all 😉 This is more of a cooperation between talented individuals, who believe they can improve their profits and their enjoyment by banding together. We use the term corporation primarily because that is what alliances are referred to in Star Atlas, and that is what we are after all.

No. You can only be a member of one guild in the game. So choose carefully.
Aephia Industries will exist in all three factions. You, as a player, will have complete freedom to decide which faction you want to partake in. Or in other words: No matter what faction you register with, you’ll have a place with us! This will enable Aephia for full vertical business integration and full control of supply chains.
Aephia will have a DAC in each of the three factions. It is likely that each of these come with their own tokens and governance options. We plan to have one DAO to rule them all. For now we are waiting to see how DAC’s are exactly implemented by the developers, before pinning down how our DAO will work in detail. Another caveat is that Solana does not have adequate services at the moment to create a DAO with rich capabilities, that would allow Aephia to move to a fully decentralized future. Fortunately work on DAO’s is ongoing by Solana dev teams and we hope to embrace these once they become available.
Yes, if the terms are right. During Townhall #19, Michael announced that the team is busy creating a platform to hook up VC’s to interested DAC’s. Besides this initiative, there are other investors occasionally contacting Aephia directly. Since investors are looking to get a good ROI, some kind of value needs to flow in their direction as a result of them investing in us. The exact terms of such an investment make all the difference. While we are open to discuss these kind of collaborations, we will refuse to accept terms that hurt our members’ bottom line.
Yes, you can! We cater to regular players, scholars and scholarship managers alike. It makes no difference to us if you control your (considerable) asset portfolio by yourself, or through your scholars. Besides all the regular benefits of joining our corporation, you will also be able to adopt new players that join us, who are looking for a scholarship.
If you have no capital to buy a ship, or would like to increase your earnings by controlling a larger fleet, you are welcome with us! Our members have a considerable amount of assets and there is a good chance they will happily lend these to you regularly. Or, if you’re looking for more security and stability, one of our resident scholarship managers can offer you a more traditional scholarship. Please note that the smart contracts to facilitate lending of in-game assets are still in development. It looks like scholarship-type gameplay won’t become reality before Q2 2022.
Absolutely! The only prohibited activity is piracy. Otherwise you can engage in any activity that you want – explore far away systems, run a spaceship gas station, create a metaverse news or entertainment center, or anything else that you come up with! All of this is possible as a part of Aephia!
In general, Aephia Indistries is a cooperative of individuals. If there are other Aephians operating in the same region of space performing the same kind of activity, we expect you to cooperate with them instead of competing.
