How many people were on the aurora

I'd just like to ask how many people are on the aurora because for such a large ship you'd assume there would be a large crew but assuming the area of were the lifepods were launched is around the area of the map maybe 2 times that you don't seem to find a large amount of lifepods.You may argue that you could fit a large amount of people in one but the thing is you can't you see there is also only one seat per lifepod and anyone not in a seat would surely be killed.So here's the thing this ship is a habitation ship and 20 people aren't going to make the planet habitable so where is the rest of the crew.

(i dont really care that much BTW so don't hate and tell me it's just a game, I just have nothing to do right now)

    Command Team (23), Engineering Team (85), Support Crew (40), Passengers (9) were on the Aurora. But this is very interesting. Where are the other people? I don't know.

    Wow... that's a LOT of engineers. Then again, the Aurora wasn't a military ship...

    The ship seems far too big and far too empty to have so little people on board, and so little debris.

    The corridors in the Aurora look like they were made for extremely fat giants, lots of wasted space wherever you look.

    Not necessarily. You wouldn't really need a lot of people to steer and maintain a ship. Other than for dramatic purposes like in Star Trek or Star Wars.

    We're on the verge of driverless cars on our streets. By the time we're zipping around in space I'd expect vessels to be largely automated.

    It's purpose has changed over time but the wiki is now saying their primary mission was to build a phasegate so that would explain the large engineering compliment.

    The playing area is not the limit of crashed lifepods. A lot of people didn't make it, some lifepods were incinerated in the explosion, and others made it beyond our playing field or where ripped apart in the atmosphere. A few probably landed in shallow water and hit so hard they went CRUNCH!!!! But this planet is almost entirely a hydrosphere so if your floats failed you would sink until the water pressure made the pod flatten you.

    If you play the game, you actually find more wrecks and more safe pods. Some came from the Aurora, but nobody survived the harsh conditions. You even get distress calls, and for some reason, (idk if its actually happening or if its just me) when you get a distress call you can see where they are, afloat, but later on it sinks as time passes, or as you get close (again idk if its just me).

    nooononono i dont mean like they come back, i mean they are alive when they send the distress call, but when u get closer it sinks. u might see a pod on the sea, up on top, that might be in the pink mushroom area with the worm snakes.

    auch moderne Containerschiffe kommen mit sehr wenig Personal aus, 25 Mann auf 400 Meter langen Schiffen verläuft sich auch ziemlich :D

    @DeadArcher62 The picture from CaptainFearless was about old posts being dragged up, not the crew/passengers of the Aurora. Most old threads are best left buried, unless you have a new solution to an ongoing issue.

    The distress calls seem to be relayed through the aurora, so the signals show up even though the pod is long gone.

    Stuck, and just want to most recent base/Cyclops? Use "Warpme" command. Want to get out of the ceiling? Press F1 and note your camera postion. First number is North/South, second number is up/down, and third is East/West. Reduce the 2nd number by 10, then use "warp x y z" (where x, y, and z are the position you want to be).

    true true, but i still dont understand how only we survived, like, even on previous expeditions on land that alterra hosted. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm... anyone else thinking that something in specific happened that killed them. ik there isnt something but it gives me that vibe
