Re: Just bought No Man's Sky

Me too, Loriath. Just got it some weeks ago. The latest update should have improved it, they say ... All in all, it is a bit like tranquilit for me, like a rest from Elite. Simpler in many ways, if not all, yet with some nice points. I just feel comfortable that if planetary landing ever happen to E...

Re: Improving Combat Skills

What do you mean by stealth builds? Ships configured to be good at Silent Running. While you will need to make certain concessions, they are not as dependent on optimizing all modules as other combat-capable builds. Which leaves more room for non-combat focus. Yet, Silent Running is not as effectiv...

Re: Improving Combat Skills

I find PvP more entertaining then clubbing AI, *if* I want a proper fight. A core problem with the loadouts is that if you don't spend absurd time searching for materials, thus being able to "god-roll" and experimental-effect many modules on your ship, you will face a huge drawback at an e...

Re: Elite Dangerous Beta 2 4 - Ship Decal Mission

Can anyone confirm the decal IF: - you run the Horizon Beta - BUT deliver Focus Crystals? The crystals were added later for non-Horizons support if I recall it correctly. I only got some Thagroid Matter and Tech but nothing that was on the CG's wish list so i sold some Crystals. It says I would be i...

Re: Friendly Fight Club: Fixed Classic, Sat 8pm CET

Always in for another go!
Although right now I would prefer a Canyon Race (ships) with a Boom.

Re: Good space Science fiction books?

Definitely my favourite, by far: Stanislav Lem, Niezwyciężony ( The Invincible ). One of the few real legends of literature, excellent style, and far ahead of it's time. Excellent read, excellent audiobook, really gripping (though as Eschbach goes, there is a tiny bit of too-much-honey here and ther...

Re: Ship Destroyed - Do Not Know Why

Yup quite deadly indeed. Since any impact between a ship and a skimmer will power off both shields and thrusters regardless of how powerful a ship you are flying. 5k mw cutter or stock sidey, shields go down and you fall. Thrusters come back in a few seconds but usually just after you have made fri...

Re: Having a bad day flying my Beluga!

You call THAT a bad day for a Beluga?
This is what I call a bad day with my beloved Rattalooga!

Re: OK THAT"S IT!! no more open play

While I am always flying in Open when Fuel Ratting (doesn't work without that) and having no issues so far -- also due a modified well-shielded Anaconda --, even flying PvP at times, I also prefer this excellent group for example at CGs or points of interest for player interaction. It is just too us...

Re: ATTN: MOBIUS ADMIN!!!..CMDR Killing at alien base sites...

If it weren't against the rules, I'd organise a couple wings to go take them out. Would serve them right! Wouldn't work, both game mechancis as mentality-wise. They just would get what they are looking for. Therefore, we the Fuel Rats have a non-engage policy (our rescues are done in Open, at least...
