Myrm's Travel Log

Postby Myrm » Sat Jul 08, 2017 11:34 am

KK, so I have been playing ED/EDH on PC for about 2 years now, but when it was released on PS4 I just had to get it so that I could play it on a 55" 4K HDTV (with PS4 Pro). Playing it on such a large screen is awesome!!


So, I am going to chronicle my journeys and adventures here. It won't be an everyday event, but just where I talk about some of the highlights and difficulties I encounter.

My PS4 name is Myrms1

Combat: Mostly Harmless
Trade: Broker
Explore: Ranger
Superpower Affiliation: Federation
Superpower Reputation: Cordial
Superpower Rank: Petty Officer
Allegiance: Felicia Winters
Permits: Sol

I am an explorer in a Asp Explorer which has the following modules installed:

Core Internal

Military Grade Composite Hull
5A Power Plant
5A Thrusters
5A Frame Shift Drive
4A Life Support
4A Power Distributor (L1 Engineered)
5A Sensors
5C Fuel Tank

Optional Internal

6E Cargo Rack
5A Shield Generator
3E Economy Class Passenger Cabin 4-berth
3A Fuel Scoop
2G Planetary Vehicle Hangar
1C Detailed Surface Scanner
1C Advanced Discovery Scanner

Utility Mounts

0A Shield Booster x3
0I Heat Sink Launcher

Coriolis Ship Build

My current objective is to gain enough reputation with the Federation to gain Federation Navy missions, in order to obtain a Sol permit. At the same time I am scanning everything (with the exception of asteroid clusters) in every system I jump into, as well as conducting missions, to earn enough cash to kit my AspX out for deep space exploration.

Finally got offered a Federation Navy mission. Seems I have to pop out to KFC for them; they want some fabricated chicken, or something.

It takes me ages to get to any location in this game as I insist on "honking" every system and then scanning everything I see, with the exception of the asteroid clusters. Brings in the kronor though. :)

One thing that somehow slipped my mind is that when you come out of the game by bringing your PS menus up, the game is still playing in the background. Came back to the game screen to find my ship being attacked, and almost near destruction. Managed to get away in time. Thank goodness I had those shield boosters.

Just started up another session EDH. Whe. I closed down last night I was on a planet in my SRV, right next to an abandoned site I had found. My intention was to explore it today. However, when the game loads my SRV is on the planet where I left it, but the site is nowhere to be seen. I'm assuming these POIs are randomly generated each time the planet is "refreshed".

Completed the Federation Navy mission and got promoted to recruit, with a 76% overflow toward the next rank.

Feeling annoyed with myself as I totally forgot that when on a station's mission page, you can select the different personalities on the left to see what missions they are offering. It's not just the list that first shows on screen. :oops:

I know what you mean! I kept doing that to first.
I made it to the California nebula in a eagle with a fuel scoop! I'm headed back now to go check out the palisades!
