I'm really enjoying Sector 1. Started playing about 6 weeks ago but taking my time. There's so much to see and do.

It's been a little while since I last played, but I agree that sector 1 is very well designed.

Let me just add that if you are a newbie (like I was) and didn't know enough to do all of the starter towns, you'll hit Junk Fortress at around level 5 or so, in which case a partner or 3 would be helpful. That was my first encounter with FE group content -- was lots of fun, not discounting the fact that we kept having to fight our way back to the entrance just to meet up with people coming back from the lifenet pods, due to our frequent deaths.

If you do all the AP quests in the starter towns first, then by the time you get to Junk Fortress, it will be easily soloable. But what fun is that?

"It's the epitome of a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The other sectors (possibly excluding Deadfall) look a bit too lush and green for my tastes."

This always gets me too. Realistically, a post-apocalyptic wasteland (after a couple of decades) probably would be pretty green - plants survive well, and grow like hell given the freedom to do so - but I, and everyone else, always imagine Mad Max, and forget that it wasn't a post-apocalyptic wasteland, that was actually Australia, it already looked like that before the rest of the world got nuked to bits. IIRC in the setting Australia didn't even get nuked.
