All dispatches are broken out by type and accessed through the main menu under Dispatches. A variety of game messages and commander to commander messages can be found here. Dispatches that are associated with a specific star, can also be sorted and read through the star notes interface on the Out System Ops page by clicking on the individual stars.
The List General Dispatches and Create Dispatch pages allows the individual commanders to send and receive in-game messages. Messages can be addressed to either an individual commander or to the federation name. A message can be sent to multiple commanders or federations by separating each addressee using a semi-colon. Copies of sent messages are only saved when the Keep Dispatch Copy checkbox has been selected.
Once created or joined, each federation has an individual (Federation Name) page that contains information describing the federation, such as a list of the federation members. Only the federation leader can modify this information, invite members, banish members, and change the name of the federation. To make these modifications, the leader needs to select the Edit Federation Profile button on the profile page or menu item under Federation in the main menu.
To manage the federation, only the federation leader can make modifications, and this is done by using the Manage Federation link under Federation in the main menu.
The Commander Standings and Federation Standings pages provide a listing of the current rankings. The rankings can be displayed by entering a name, entering a rank or by paging through the list.
Each commander has an individual Profile page that contains information only displayed within Dark Expanse©. The profile provides the in game persona of the commander. To modify this information, the commander needs to select the Edit Profile button on the profile page, or select the Edit Profile link under Administration in the main menu.
The Preference page allows the individual commander to manage their game preferences. Editing preferences allows the commander to make a number of modifications, such as naming the currently selected planet, creating and leaving a federation, as well as leaving the game. To modify this information, the commander needs to select the Edit Preferences button on the Preferences page, or select the Edit Preferences link under Administration in the main menu.
