That's not such a bad idea, pop a big fat FSD in it for a 25 ly jump range and you can keep ships stationed all over the place, just return them to where you parked the sidewinder when you are done.

right now I've just arrived back at port after a mining run in my cobra, 22 tonnes of palladium and 14 of indite.

im in a high tech refinery system called Uru that's 127 ly from sol and 146ly from I Bootis in the old beta area. i'm kind of stuck as i cant find a route to Sol from here and i can't find a better FSD anywhere :( i have about 600k and a few upgrades, 36 tonne capacity and a 4 bin ref.

I'm in a Cobra with a B4 FSD, B3 Power Plant, B3 Power distributor and 40T cargo capacity. Downgraded my fuel tank from 16 to 8 to increase my jump range. Been in the ETA Cassipeiae/Groombridge 34 area doing missions and trading and got my reputation up high enough to the point where I was offered a haulage mission to transport 20t of Gold for 155 thousand credits earlier :)

AndyB, if you're too far out the Galaxy Map won't be able to plot a route for you. What I did to get to Sol was to select it as a destination so I knew what direction it was in and then cycle through the systems I could jump to in order to find the one that was the closest in terms of direction and then repeated the process till I got close and could plot a course.

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.

I use steam so I can use the browser overlay. Its very handy.

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

I know exactly what you mean.

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 !!

That was around the time I was getting interdicted while talking to you and I was rammed by an ASP.

You must be a jinx, I lost 25,000 cr.

Lol.

I'm currently residing in Carena (carenan?). Intercepting space banditos, trading in illegal goods, and saving up for a new FSD drive for my viper. I haven't seen a human player in a long time.

Still in the sidey, nearly maxed, just missing the two beams. I'm exploring, trading in the blackmarket, investigating USS, bountyhunting for good.

In Short...... Im having fun :D
