Honor is very important in Dark Orbit. The higher your honor the higher your rank, and the more credits you earn selling ore, at the station.
When you 500,000 honor you will get double the amount of credits for each piece of ore than when you started. This is the maximum you can make. When your high enough level you can also sell at enemy bases, but you will receive the base amount, not your bonus amount.
Your ranking is affected by honor, the calculation goes like this 1/100 for the „Hall of Fame“ (EXP/1000 + Honor/100), 1000 honorpoints are 10 rankingpoints.
You get positive honor for the following:
1 : By killing NPCs NPCs (Alienships controlled by the system / non player characters )
2 : By killing ships of other companys
3. Completing quests
Negative Honor will affect you in adverse ways, it will lower your attack damage as follows:
Honor < -200 = 10% lower damage ( 90% basic damage)
Honor < -500 = 20% lower damage (80% basic damage )
Honor < -1000 = 40% lower damage (60% basic damage )
Honor < -2000 = 70% lower damage (30% basic damage )
Honor < -10000 = 90% lower damage (10% basic damage )
You will lose honor by doing the following:
1. Killing own company ships. This is penalized by -100 honor for first offense, -200 for second and so on, doubling each time.
2. Stealing cargo's that are not free. When you see cargo boxes on the screen there are two colors, gray and orange. Gray belongs to someone else, and orange is free to take. This will negate honor in the same manner starting at 20, 40, etc.
There is no limit to losing honor and because it doubles every time it will cost you a lot in a hurry. Once you hit -500 honor you become an outlaw and get a target beside your name for your rank.
After 24 hours the counter will reset.
If you kill a member of your company that shoots you first Positive honor is given.
Tip : Outlaws who want to get back to plus honor should try the quest "An offer you can´t refuse" (only visible for people with -500 honor points or less.
Note: No deduction of honor if the ship of own company gots honor below -500.
