Re: Trader / Mining ship defense against interdictions

First interdiction of my T9 with the new setup, and I got completely wrecked by a competant FAS, 3 million rebuy and an 90 minutes of mining down the drain. Now admittedly I only had 1M+2S mine layers not a full complement because I was coming back from mining, but still pissed me off. Every time th...

Re: Trader / Mining ship defense against interdictions

Excellent video, will definitely be trying that strategy on my T9 next time I'm trading.

Re: Unexpected Little Things in Engineers

I'm getting the 0:00 time limit update a lot. Got it once as I was coming in to dock at the (original) target station, still couldn't make it in time. It must be like 30s or something, unless you are already inside the station coming in to land nobody will ever be able to do it in time.

Re: Getting bored now

I will say, if it's anything like the mission I just did, as soon as you get the mission objective, be ready to GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE. Two condas and a corvette dropped in to say hello with their lasers for me. I was able to escape, but damn. Must be RNG or mission-specific, I just did the exac...

Re: Self defence in a T9

A trading anaconda costs only 160mil. Has a 1k in shields. Can jump 19ly while carrying 432t, just a few mil more than a t9 that granted carries about 30 tons more but is litterally a death trap. Bit of an understatement of the price difference. My T9 cost me 85 mil, the conda is almost twice that ...

Re: Self defence in a T9

Thanks for all the advice guys. I shall be installing chaff and some SBs ASAP and dropping the weapons, hopefully that should keep me alive long enough to jump away.

As for the conda, it's in the plan but I am far away from the 170mil needed (build price + two rebuys) at the moment.

Self defence in a T9

I've worked my way up to a T9 for my trading ship. In all previous ships whenever I'm interdicted I just relied on running away, boost until FSD is off cooldown and jump. NPCs hardly ever broke though my shields, and certainly never caused serious damage before I jumped. Things are different in the ...

Re: Halfway Halfassed Tour: Organizing and Logistics.

But as for short vs. long, I think I'd rather keep it on the shorter side. The 3-4 months of the DWE was a killer. I just felt like I missed too much, like the rise of the A-Team. :roll: That's a very good point. I think choosing a duration and then basing the speed and route on that is the way to ...

Re: Halfway Halfassed Tour: Organizing and Logistics.

Wow, what's that - 5 weeks to go 30,000LY? That's less than 1/2 hour a day travel time plus exploring, over a route that has already been picked over by over 1000 commanders. After spending all that time on the DWE, I don't think I could take another slow paced expedition like that again. But I und...
