    In the loading screen it says mining starts year 2068, and then 2102 it has gone 36 years without any incidents. Shouldn't it have passed 34 years? :p

    This has been brought up numerous times and each time Ability assures us all "somehow" the math is correct.

    Mirage ಠ_ಠ What are you looking at?

    The years were calculated in another math besides from base10 obviously.

    The only way I can figure it out is there is a 2 year survey/building period before mining actually starts.

    Oh I think it was worker riots or something. I think it was in the backstory thread on the first forum.

    Well I remember there was some large scale riot on the Mars Colony, where guys with shivs managed to take over because they only had Compliance Nexuses for Law and Order, no marines, no robots, no homicidal AIs.

    Hmm... You would have thought that riots are classified as "incidents".

    My explanation is that a freak temporal wormhole opened up that caused the world to go back two years, but I guess the math is right somehow.

    I think its being looked at from the wrong perspective. Mining Started that year. Construction must have started before Mining started. During the last two years prior to mining, no problems occurred. 2 Years Prior to the start of mining, no Space-ships / equipment malfunctioned severely and caused huge problems (no Crashes, work-related deaths from equipment [Disease may be included, not sure though]).

    Its not like Suddenly the Mining Colony and everything was there instantaneously. Some work must have been done prior to the Start of mining Operations such as tests, Checks, Construction and whatnot.
