Re: Sci-Fi authors and Astronomy

I recently singed contract as an author for the oldes Sci-Fi series still in existence, or to be precise, a version of the original running in parallel, but adapted to today's knowledge in astrophysics (and all the other stuff that changed since the 60's). I observed that space combat is a particula...

Re: Reported for sitting in a dock (apologies)

I am with TorTorden there. I feel it's not the job of the group to police such things, that could escalate soon ("he shot the NPC I just wounded! Send the killstealer a ticket!"). This is not really the idea behind Mobius, at least how I understand it. And to use Mobius as a policing entit...

Re: And BOOM! Nerf Hammer Falls!

I´m not saying you are playing it wrong or something like that, but I would imagine that if I made 2 billion credits on one day, I´ll be more or less done with the game. I´d buy my ship of choice with all A-grade modules and then all that´s left is grind for ranks. When I was new to Elite in end 20...

Re: And BOOM! Nerf Hammer Falls!

Funny side note, when I was popping skimmers in a cheap Eagle –- engaging multicannons and cannons to have some fun -- there sat a big fat Python. Sometimes it was in fact engaging, but behaved like a defense ground battery, didn't take off and stuff. Oh and it shot frags ... which didn't impact sta...

Re: PATCH IS LIVE ! Beyond 3.0 patch notes.

Put G5 Dirty Drives with the +10% Optimal Mass on an D-graded Imperial Eagle.
Then head out for some planet with crevasses and press Boost.

Note: Don't try this at home ... and not on a full stomach

Re: My Open Play experience.

Quite typical for hotspots like Sothis really. And a topic since game launch ... Though I have to say that besides at hotspots (CGs, popular trade routes, Alien sites) I seldom ran into difficulties in Open, where I am spending much of my time fuel ratting. But when I have some sensitive stuff to do...

Re: Out of Fuel? -- Mobius Fuel Rats

The "Tactical Face Plant" is a brutal manoeuvre to drop close to another ship that has stranded in a star's exclusion zone and is thus not reachable by standard Wingman Nav Lock. It is usually employed by Fuel Rats and requires a bit of practice, since speed and precision will define how f...

Re: Out of Fuel? -- Mobius Fuel Rats

RAsp - well maybe RAsp isn't so cute. :roll: Well but with the Raider spikes, it looks appropriately scruffily ratty, doesn't it? :D https://inara.cz/data/gallery/35/35075x2009.jpg But no love for the DBX, Cobra, and Adder? Oh but I did. Cobra as a proper multirole Rat, for example, and Adder as th...

Re: 3.0 Beta

Beta is soon over, and I just realized that

you can try all ships, including rank-locked like Cutter and Corvette! Also for 10% cost.

Grab them in the Wyrd system and have fun.

Re: The Vulture loadout Thread: Plasma, Beam, Cannon, Shield Boosters ...

As far as I know, the un-engineered stats haven't changed too much since thread start ... have they? In any case, you may use the older posts as a rough guide. Note that there may be slight changes in (un-engineered) modules when Beyond drops, the update that may come during march. They mentioned so...
