Re: Just started mining

I was in bd+28 413 till this morning, a FC moved in a few days ago and they still hadn't moved so I did. I don't remember where I moved to (and the update is downloading now), just another system with rings and no FCs. I didn't even check out the rings for hotspots as none of that stuff really matte...

Re: What are you doing (ingame) now?

I managed to fly my Anaconda out of the mail slot while an NPC Type 9 was coming in without hitting anything, my proudest accomplishment in the game so far. I didn't even know that was possible. I usually watch for incoming ships if I'm in something bigger than a Python but somehow I fell asleep and...

Re: Are the large ships worth it aside from putting a tick in the achievements box?

Should I be charging for tickets? Yes I think so, it is a very interesting thread, there is a similar one on the Reddit VTMB but it isn't getting the interesting input as this one is. Scott Peck in The Road Less Traveled mentions the importance of becoming an expert in at least one thing in life. W...

Re: Scout Hunting for Beginners (AX CZ)

I've never flown a Corvette but I do not think you should not have any great fears about hanging around in the AZ CZ when the Interceptors arrive, just be prepared in the normal ways with an escape plan. Even the Vulture listed in the OP isn't threatened by Interceptors arriving unless it is more th...

Re: Scout Hunting for Beginners (AX CZ)

If a limpet gets hit in combat there is a chance it will be destroyed (nearly 100% it seems) so it is a calculated risk to enter combat while a limpet is repairing. If I have lots of limpets left I do as you suggest. If not I get out and stay out of combat till repairing is complete. Repairing in NH...

Re: Is this Normal?

Nice, I think you had the least interesting encounter so you have a lot to look forward to.

Scouts are always instantly hostile (as you learned), everything else is peaceful unless provoked... or if they appear in same instance as Scouts are only hostile because Scouts are.

+10,000 for that comment, so I repeat: Do it, try them all!

Re: how do you control the game

... is there a way to use hybrid flight scheme with KB+M? Maybe I can somehow turn on and off Relative Mouse along with FA-off key or something? I mean there should be people who use hybrid flight model, right?... Many suggestions have been made for relative toggle feature (all ignored) but I would...
