Just recently I built A city on Huk. I sent 1,500,000 credits to the Huk City Planning Council. I was Unaware that no cities could be built on planets Not controlled by anyone. I thought that with the galaxy change over there would be New opportunities, Obviously not, because my city was destroyed. I recieved a fine of 598,444 credits from the faction Darkness and I lost a personal vechicle with 4 NPC's that Cannot be recovered. If I knew all of this would happen I wouldn't have wasted my time and energy. I thought the galaxy change was for the better, it has been nothing but a big headache for me. I am asking that my credits of 1,500,000
would be refunded because there is no Huk City Planning Council.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
It was mentioned many times that you cannot build on the uncontrolled planets while control was restored to the correct parties. If you were aware of the galaxy change, you would be aware of the penalties for ignoring the warnings given.
Not only did he spend 1.5 mil, he lost a vehicle and NPCs, and was fined on top of that?
This reminds me of the episode of The Mentalist where Jane refused to pay the extortionist speeding fine: if it was not allowed to build on the planets, then the ability to submit a build plan should have been turned off (those trying would get the message about not having permission or simply their request was declined)
“6. MOST IMPORTANTLY. If you see an unowned planet atm, as in there's no cities/no owner/anything, DO NOT CITY SLAB ON IT UNTIL A SIM NEWS SAYS OTHERWISE. Anyone failing to understand this will lose not only their city/whatever they placed, but will also be fined.

I'm fairly certain he didn't accidentally hyper to Huk,accidentally land on the surface and accidentally click through the options to get a city slab created.
“Not only did he spend 1.5 mil, he lost a vehicle and NPCs, and was fined on top of that?”
I would be willing to bet that the vehicle and NPC's lost were part of the fine, and not sheer malice.
The fact that it is a "news flash" is pretty self-explanatory.....the blue flashy icon is important stuff from the administration, the green flashy icon is from player generated stuff. Here is another link to a resource which will provide you with more information on the matter, we call it The Guide and it can be found at the top of every page.
I guess I am out of some credits. I will build in the future on Huk, seeing that everything is futile now. Maybe you should post it in the rules so no one else builds and gets scammed. I"m sure I won't be the first one.That would be the best thing to do when something so confusing ( galaxy change or new planets) comes up again. Thank you everyone for your inputs.
Doesn't need to be in the rules. The new planets that are currently uncontrolled will have a faction in control of them to prevent unwanted slabbing by players. As we add new planets they will be free to build on. It was just a precautionary measure when we synced, because obviously we cannot get the planets covered as soon as we sync, especially with lazy Jesfa at the helm. So it was made clear in the news post informing you of the new galaxy to not build on there. Was also warned not to in the previous post saying that the change would be coming in the next few days.
