Getting bored now

2½ days - still no sign of any rebel transmissions. I'm in the system I'm supposed to be in (Azrael, as it happens) and no matter where I drop, there are never any canisters. Materials, yes, but no canisters.

Am I doing something wrong, or is it just borked?

Is that so anyone still inside the house can be woken up by reveille?

Re: ASP Explorer

If you have fixed or gimballed weps, do everything you can when maneouvring to keep your assailant in their fire. If you present the top or bottom of your ship to them, they can't miss. It's a big old silhouette. It's less of a problem with turrets because you can present your sides to the target an...

It's OK as long as you're frugal with the boost button.

I'm only doing mining so I can say I've done it. It makes trading feel interesting.

Re: Beta Update 4

So the basic premise of that thread is that the 2.1 players will have an advantage over 1.6 players and the OP didn't think it was fair. Well from my perspective it's not about fairness it's about balance. Frontier already have a problem with new players in sideys being hunted by idiots in overpowe...
