The year is 259O AD. The planet Earth has now ceased to
be named Earth, it is now Known as 24.78 Megno Pen. There are no
countrys or continents, these are now Sectors and 24.78 MP has
been sectioned into 72 of these Sectors. England as we now know
it, has become Earth Sector.
The F.M.C (Federation Missionary Council) now rule 24.78
MP. The F.M.C are there to make good of what resources they have.
You have just become a member of this organisation, at the rank of
Cadet. Before you can become a Council Member (of which is your
aim) you have to start at the bottom and work your way up. To do
this you have been given a small craft called a Saloon. This
Saloon is just the guidence system and computer. It has a small
cargo hold, but will only hold 1OO Kbs of cargo. You can get
larger cargo attachments to hook onto your Saloon but they cost.
You start with 5OOO Credits and trade with different Sectors, to
gain good profits and rank. You need : 1OO,OOO,OOO Credits - a
rank of Admiral - a ship of Saloon X318 Class : and guts.
Be sure to follow orders at all times. Make sure you
have good stocks of cargo in your stores in Earth Sector. Your
stores can be replenished anywhere on 24.78 MP. But you can only
fill your ship with cargo in Earth Sector and can't sell any cargo
in Earth Sector. Buy cheap and sell for profit.
There are a few hazards lurking and I hope they do not
affect your trading, as they won't if you head all the warnings
and carry out orders. And by the way you can come to Earth Sector
at any time to restock, and cargo holds have a limited life span
before they must be scrapped.
I as the chief Member of the F.M.C. do wish you the best
of luck and I hope you will join us soon. Program F.M.C. Trader
This program was writen entirely in STOS Basic. I have
heard different types of rumours about STOS Basic, but in all its
entirety it is for games programming. But many other programmes
that I have writen (utilitys-adventures-etc). I can't see for the
life of me why STOS Basic isn't't good enough. All in all there is
no limit to STOS Basic - I tell a lie there is one : YOUR
