SOC - Largest Ever - Active Discord Community - Experienced Advisers - Member of TGF
#1
Rainbow 

SOC is founded on the principles of:

Activity
Helpfulness
Growth
Community


Origins of the name

The Standard Oil Company was the largest oil refiner in the world while it existed, and was eventually ruled to be an illegal monopoly by the United States Supreme Court and dissolved in 1911. The smaller companies that it split off into eventually did much better than it could have on it's own, and several of them are among the wealthiest corporations today.
The Standard Oil Company can be shorted to SOC, which is the same acronym we use.

The One True Terra (TOTT) was the largest commonwealth in the game, founded by yours truly, and was incorrectly classified as cheating due to a glitch. This permanently deleted the commonwealth information and website. I have converted my colony into a new commonwealth, SOC, and have successfully built a new commonwealth that has become the largest in the game, larger than TOTT ever was.

The stories of SOC and the original Standard Oil Company have several similarities; TOTT was the largest commonwealth in the game, incorrectly determined to be illegal, and it's child SOC rose again, stronger than ever before!

How to Join

Use the charter code DOOb6Emc to fast track your path to independence.
Join our Discord Server and use -register in the #registration channel and !qggp to
  • Get free goodies in the forum of a Quick Growth Goodie Pack (QGGP™) sent to your colony.
  • Join an active community of people who are willing to help you with any issues you have in the game.
  • Easily make specific resource requests in a manner that will ensure the mother colony will accept them as soon as possible.
  • Get access to a members only discord channel with regularly updated tips from Advisers that are tailored specifically towards new members in addition to those in later stages of the game.
  • Join a network of highly active players who are all willing and able to send you resources when you struggle.
  • And more!
    SOC will accept all active new members, but is most interested in members who can be active participants in our Discord community.
    We are interested in helping you grow your economy quickly and become independent quickly if you so choose. We also offer graduates who identify with the goal and ideals of SOC and want to help new members advance in the game the opportunity to stay within SOC and even potentially become elected as Advisers.


Checklist
  • Join our discord server.
  • Use -register command in the #registration channel to get your commonwealth and military rank.
  • Use !qggp in any channel to receive your free resources.
  • Grow - log in to the game at least once per month, steadily grow your number of colonists and/or GDP, and occasionally check discord for updates
  • Have Fun Smile
  • Complete items on the bonus checklist below for even more resources! (Optional)
Discord requires no download or registration. I have made the decision to move requests to discord to ensure requests can be filled as quickly as possible.

Bonus Checklist

Each one of the challenges below that you complete will grant your colony your choice of one of the following:
  • 200,000 money
  • 100,000 ore
  • 100,000 steel
  • 100,000 gold
  • 20,000 microchips
  • 5,000 wood
  • 5,000 aluminum
  • 1,000 uranium
  • 500 alien artifacts * requires construction of your first dig site
Some can be completed more than once.

Challenges:
  • Contribute with a reply to this forum post (repeatable).
  • Rate this thread with 5 stars (requires screenshot).
  • Give a fellow SOC member a +1 rating on the forums - click rate at the end of one of their posts if they were helpful (repeatable).
  • Reach each new military rank on our discord server (Cadet, Second Lieutenant, Lieutenant, Captain, Major, etc).
  • Reach each new metal rank on our discord server (Lead, Iron, Aluminum, Chrome, Titanium etc).
  • Post a screenshot of your full map of any size on the forum thread and discord.
  • Tell a joke in #offtopic that literally makes Vyryn laugh out loud.
  • Be elected as an Adviser - motion to become an adviser in #motion_discussion_chamber and have your motion seconded and passed.
When you complete one of these, let me know with @Vyryn in the #soc_requests channel on discord which reward you would like and what you completed so that I can send you your reward!


Details

If you wish to set out on your own, SOC will assist you in ensuring that when you become independent you will have all the tools in your arsenal to grow for many years to come, perhaps one day founding a successful new commonwealth. Rest assured that I am not one of those commonwealths who just want your taxes and will hinder your path to greatness.
SOC firmly believes that you should never have to struggle to pay your taxes. If you are having difficulties, let me know here or on discord and I will work with you to develop a self sustaining colony, providing not only tax reimbursements but materials needed for gold mint or bank production as well.


What is a Quick Growth Goodie Pack™?

A Quick Growth Goodie Pack™ is a gift every member can receive that will help them quickly expand their economy into a galactic superpower, while keeping their colonist happy and ensuring that they learn the skills required to continue their success after independence. Every SOC member will receive their Quick Growth Goodie Pack™ if they use the command !qggp in our discord.
Your Quick Growth Goodie Pack™ will include the following resources:
34,470 Ore
7,760 Steel
4,705 Gold
100,000 Money
Why these numbers?

This is enough Ore, Iron and Gold to start you off with 4 Landing Pads, 2 Advanced Ore Refineries, 6 small pumps, 4 Solar Towers, 3 Small Research Labs, 3 Residential Complexes, 2 Advanced Hydroponics Centers, and your first Gold Refinery. The money enables you to put your best leg forward and initially focus on your economy instead of taxes.
Note that even if you do not have sufficient storage capacity, you will still receive the resources. However, your production will stop until the resources are below your capacity again. SOC hopes that your Quick Growth Goodie Pack™ will save you a few hours of initial work, skip the "steel grind" (Which can be the main put-off for new players) and set you on the path to Independence or becoming an Adviser.
Further goodies can be gained by doing anything on the Bonuses list.

Thank you for helping make SOC better than ever before and best of luck on your colony!

Best of luck to all members of SOC, one day soon you can be on this list!
Special thanks to chronark for creating a script that makes updating this list so much easier.

Kudos List

This section is a thank you to the people who have chosen to give back to the commonwealth. Due to space limitations and tons of contributions, individual contributions will no longer be shown here. Instead, every contribution can be seen in the #gifts_thank_you channel on discord. Thank you all for your contributions.
I would like to remind you that I never expect any gifts that prevent you from growing.

SOC on Top

Great work everyone in rebuilding SOC, we have succeeded and are once again the largest commonwealth. Let's continue to grow and develop the community for everyone Smile

New Discord

We have moved discord servers so that the entire Galactic Federation shares one discord server. We believe this will promote unity and activity within our Federation. If you notice anything missing that was on our old Discord, let Vyryn know and he will add it.[/align]

SOC Map

With the introduction of colony locations in 0.32, we now have a map of the SOC commonwealth.

For a limited time only, new colonies who register on discord will receive 10 times more than this!
That means 344,700 ore, 77,600 steel, 47,050 gold and 100,000 money! Don't miss this opportunity!

Why these numbers?

This is enough Ore, Iron and Gold to start you off with 4 Landing Pads, 2 Advanced Ore Refineries, 6 small pumps, 4 Solar Towers, 3 Small Research Labs, 3 Residential Complexes, 2 Advanced Hydroponics Centers, and your first Gold Refinery.

If you instead wish to remain a part of SOC, we will be happy to have you and may be able to provide extended support when you encounter "The Aluminum Problem", which is like the steel grind but occurs much later on in the game, however you should not feel any obligation to stay if you do not wish to.
Further goodies can be gained by doing anything on the Bonuses list.

Thank you for helping make SOC better than ever before and best of luck on your colony!

"Hello"  Tongue

Recently unemployed programmer / tester / supervisor type and spending my days in the mars neighborhood. Thought I would stop lurking. If you don't like me, blame Vyryn for my presence, as his help to others on the forums drove me here.

Tried to give this place 5 stars, I think it hiccuped and I gave it 4... sorry!

Also posted my "Hashtag" layout, I like the two roads for traffic and wrap them around the lander
