Re: FLASH TOPIC: Powerplay Proposal

The other aspect that I’m not too keen about is the “Missions give Powerplay Success” bit.
This is going to affect the BGS factions as PP commanders flip systems to support their Power so that they can increase merit gain by running missions that affect the BGS.

Re: Wall of text spammers in Mobius

One of the reasons why I guess FDev does not allow galaxy wide chat. Good thing about ED is that the galaxy is huge. And there is no place with a concentration of players like Jita in EvE or one of the racial cities in WoW. You can easily block the player from spamming the text to your comms as well...

Re: USS Scaning

Nope. The USS are pretty much RNG and are not persistent. What I really wish is for FDev to revert back to the code which showed exactly what a USS was without us having to stop and scan them. The USS stop and scan was supposed to be a new cool game mechanic. But it got really old really fast with t...

Re: Sci-Fi authors and Astronomy

Actually I’m currently enjoying the book. It has an interesting premise. Mixing magic with science. The only issue I have with the story and the author is the distances involved in some of the scenarios. Space combat is really an interesting and not really practically researched science. How do we a...

Re: Sci-Fi authors and Astronomy

Distance from Earth to Moon is 384,000 km. The book I’m reading is called Starship’s Mage. They use magic for interstellar travel and fusion drives for space travel. The weapons they use are homing missiles with anti-matter drives and lasers. Speed of light is about 300,000 km/s so it would take abo...

Sci-Fi authors and Astronomy

Sometimes I wish Sci-Fi authors who have a basic grasp of physics play games like ED or Kerbal Space Program. This would allow them to understand better the distances and times involved in spaceflight. I brought this up cause I just started reading this book where the author keeps placing ships in t...

Re: 3.0.3 Dropped Today......

So if you scan a clean ship in independent space and it shows a bounty, you can’t shoot it?

Re: 3.0 Beta

Can’t wait for the beige plague to start fading into memory. Looking forward to the new Engineers. Will do experimentation to see if my grandfathered modules are better or the new modified ones. Currently, trying to accumulate as much materials as the current system will allow. Also, looking forward...

Re: 3.0 Beta

Personally, I only tried the FDL once and the FAS once. I always tend to compare ships with the Python. And compared to the Python the Chieftain just isn’t for me. It depends on your play style. Me, tank when I have to, run when I want to, run rings when I feel like it, carry cargo, go exploring (ju...

Re: 3.0 Beta

Flying the Cheiftain. Not too bad. Manouverability seems pretty good. Shields suck but armour seems good (though 150T for reactive armour is a way too much.) Don’t know what people are talking about when they say it drifts. Brought it to a Haz Res, it did ok. To me, the fuel tank is too small and it...
