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...

See here http://www.fuelrats.com You might need to switch to Open play through the rescue process, but this never had been a real problem or ...

Re: Back inside the fantastic Cobra

Oooh, the Beluga is a ship for Connoisseurs. As Fuel Rats at least. Best jump range? Highest speed? Sod this for pure size and brilliance. Good tanks as well. Oh and just fill it up to it's neck with Fuel Limpet Transfer Controllers. And in case you get too close to a White Dwarf, you might have a r...

Re: Thargoid Encounter

Your best bet, if you want to face an alien ship, are the Barnacles. The alien ship (note: Not necessarily a Thargoid) appears there in irregular intervals to "harvest" (as it seems) the Barnies. To enhance your chances for an alien encounter, you might consider heavy mode switching betwee...
