What are you doing (ingame) now?

Postby Forked » Sat Nov 29, 2014 4:29 pm

I'll start.

Just upgraded(?) from a Cobra to a Type-6 transporter. Hauling superconductors and tantalum between two systems next to eachother (less than 6 LY apart). With empty cargohold (max is currently 68 (it was 60 on cobra) while I'm saving up for the 32 ton bins) I have about 433000 credits right now. Profit is about ~2k/ton for each round trip.

I have my eyes on that ASP .. and I'm hoping there wont be a complete wipe for launch next month :p

edit: I also have plans of buying a new cobra and find a system for mining. I tried in beta 3 to mine, but only with a hauler and I could at the time not find anything worth the time.

Just arrived at Barnard star ... gonna do a bit of sight seeing in Sol in my Cobra.

Im skint ... as Ive just bloody ran out of fuel in the last system.
When I loaded game up, the nearest port was 0.30ly away ... journey time of 1hr 15 .
Got it down ro 0.28ly distance, when I ran out of fuel, and watched my windscreen freeze over just before I croaked it from running out of oxygen. :|
After insurance ... Ive got a grand total of 94 credits . Whoo hoo ... !!!
Selling my beam laser for some reddies ... never really liked that weapon anyway .

Cheers !!

I'm in the process of travelling about 160ly to where a friend started off. Bit of a pita because it means my freagle is going to be back where I started. I'm considering buying a cheapo sidey to use as a one way shuttle bus but knowing my luck, I'll get half way back and won't have the jump range. Or the freagle won't have the range...one or the other. :-)

Still, I'm seeing some nice sights on the way and at least he started in the direction of Sol so it's easy to keep my bearings.

Oh, and I really need a better fuel scoop than the crappy 300cr one that's like holding a tea strainer out of the window. Mainly because I keep getting interdicted while scooping and end up toasting my ship.

Grinding in Cosi.......

Just back from a mission I could not complete.....I could get the items when empty...But no way back when full....

I saw the Nox system and remembered someone said about upgrades there...So I went there and upgraded my Sidey....

New FSD.....New Power Source.....New Shield genny...........

So now I'm skint....Wondering whether to sell my eagle and get a hauler......

Fecking interdictions are getting on my tits...One was when I was 1.1Nms from dropping....The safe disengage was on and everything.....Had no chance of avoiding....Dropped and a poxy Eagle opened up with some serious shit....Stripped my shields in one pass......

So I returned the favour.....But the fooker was too fast....Just made it out with 10% hull......

Now I'm just gonna try and program a docking macro onto my keyboard and add the new teamspeak server.....

Tor.....Hold on.......Tor.......Wait a bit.....TOR will you stop fecking firing.......Ok......Tor I know a therapist that can help you....... :D My Cmdr also has small feet

Crashed for the second time today while alt+tab between the client and the Elite Companion.

Around 50,000, trying to get a hauler.

TBH, getting a bit miffed, not sure if I can take grinding only for it to be wiped on the 16th.

Indeed...I'm taking things very easily until the release.

Haven't found any great trade routes so doing hauling missions. Saving up for a cobra then going to try some mining.

Until the server disconnected me a few minutes ago I was approaching my destination with a Hauler full loaded with Hydrogen.
