Re: Ship Boosting at will

Using an X-55 by any chance? It sounds like ghosting (phantom inputs) which occurs when the HOTAS isn't receiving enough power. Not only can it boost at the wrong time, I've had mine turn on silent running or drop landing gear in the middle of fights! The usual solution is to try using different USB...

Re: I think my neighbour's dog is gay

Um... I'm not sure what to say about a story like that!

Re: Rail Guns in Beyond (3.0)

Previously, I used a C4 fixed beam in combo with two railguns on my FdL. A year ago, I described the DPS of this combo as "mindblowing". However, it does not seem to be the case any more. I've switched to four efficient beams and an overcharged multicannon (all gimballed), and my kill spee...

Re: Noob help

It's never too late to start Elite Dangerous - players are frequently resetting their accounts and starting from scratch just to start playing from the beginning. However, this game isn't for most players used to MMOs... ⋅ If you're looking for stories and quests that guide you to your goa...

Re: Not Quite Sure What To Make Of This One.....

I'm 100% in support of making things more accessible for people with a disability. However, those that try to use their disability as a VIP pass to get discounts and special treatment everywhere should be ashamed of themselves. The guy from Great Dorset Chilli Festival who wrote that was probably th...

Re: How to do Conflict Zones ?

CZs tend to spawn ships that will be a challenge for yours and that's why you're getting a lot more big ships than when you were in a DBE. Also, the biggest, baddest ship in the area tends to attract the most aggro. As you move into more powerful ships, you'll need to learn aggro management for CZs....

Re: White Dwarf jet-cone boost went wrong (almost)

I find it's usually not worth the effort to use White Dwarf boosts - it takes about as long to supercharge the FSD for +50% range as it does to make another jump. FSD repair costs and non-negligible likelihood of crashing into the star (as shown in the video!) add to the negatives. Neutron stars how...

Re: Apologies

Technically, if you were there first, you have the right to park there as long as you like. Really? Who says - apart from you? Who says otherwise? EDIT: Just to add a bit more info: There's no doubt that vacating a pad as soon as you've finished with it is a "nice thing to do" as it poses...

Re: Apologies

Technically, if you were there first, you have the right to park there as long as you like. Things do happen in real life and sometimes a player could be called away from the computer for something urgent. But the fact that you are apologising here shows that you are a very considerate player that w...

Re: Shot down a ship in my SRV.

I don't think the AI is programmed to respond to SRVs - I've shot at some and they've turned red but they don't move or shoot back. But if this NPC is persistent and you can relog to shoot it again, congrats! You've found an unlimited bounty exploit that will get nerfed as soon as Frontier hears abo...
