Re: trading for the new commanders

Just after I bought my AspX (and engineered it for 35-40LY jump range), I ran the Rares Trade Route, and the ship paid for itself in no time, and then some, especially after doing the full route (sans Shinrarta as I don't have access yet). https://i.imgur.com/lkRWdtw.jpg

Re: Random talk about Tea and Me

South African here.

If I do drink tea, Earl Grey is my first choice (no milk, and a pinch of sugar sometimes depending on my mood)

But, am primarily a coffee drinker, and prefer it, although don't mind the odd cup of tea. I did deliver about 3000t of tea for the CG, though! :D

Re: How have I not given bounty hunting a try before!

When in Res, what strategy are you using? Hunt out any wanted and blast away? Hang with the local security and wait for them to pick on someone, then jump in when shields go down and steal the bounty from them? Head to the RES carrying cargo in the hold to attract the desired attention? I tend to h...

Re: Tourists who dislike being scanned

Some good advice in this thread, two things that stand out for me to avoid scans with pax who are averse to this: 1) Silent Running and dropping Heat Sinks 2) Boosting Of the two, and I've tried both, boosting works for me. When approaching a station in SC, I try to be as aligned as possible with th...

Re: Low Bounty Rewards?

300 to 700 credits sounds unusually low, the only time you tend to see this is when a previously clean ship decides to take a pot shot at a miner, you should really be seeing bounties in the thousands. RES can be a bit random, and spawns tend to be poor if the system has a high security status, ror...

Re: Where Does Everyone Hang Out?

I've seen other player's at the CGs, at The Oracle, and everyone now and again, rarely bump into one on my trade routes.

Re: Dead Silent in Congested Space

I don't take it personally if someone doesn't respond to my hail, as I hope they don't when I miss a hail.

Re: Dead Silent in space

If I happen to see another CMDR in my contacts, I will hail them, and if I get hailed, try to respond in kind. However, one might miss the hail if you are distracted by your task at hand. If you are in a burning station, trying to avoid debris, explosions, and basically being turned into bacon, the ...
