I'm new to the game and I just got to level 15. When I click on
"Seek the Improbability Drive", a message shows up saying
try a different outpost. What am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Well, the Drive is quite simply out shopping and will return shortly. Wait, no, no, it just means that you have to go to another outpost and look for it.

ActSci. The drive is in a random outpost. Chosen afresh each day. You have to hunt for it I'm afraid.

By the way, in each outpost there's somewhere called Location 4. That's usually a good place to ask questions.

Not true. The Drive will remain in its original randomly selected Outpost unless you see a message at New Day which declares that it's Improbably packed up and gone to another randomly selected Outpost. Wink

...Actually, I never knew that... Thought it was based on actual Newdays, as opposed to DP-purchased or Chronosphere'd NewDays... Then again, I usually try to find the drive immediately upon hitting 15, but that's just me.


Isn't sanity just a one-trick pony anyway? All you get is one trick: rational thinking. But when you're good and crazy, oooh, oooh, the sky's the limit.

I've seen that happen exactly once, during my first run in Season Two. Never before, never again. I was starting to think I'd imagined it, or that it was something that was implemented and removed again...

Random. Huh.

Not random. Merely improbable. I'm sure a phone number of a London station will help you to calculate the exact improbability.
