No delays at all on transitions from Frame Shift at the Thargoid site in open (with lots of fighting going on), not seen the FPS drop below 60 yet hanging around at a busy station, all menus appear quicker. I hope that's not just my perception but everything seems 'snappier'.

Found one very nice thing as well today :

- Number of total Missions per Board significantly increased, seeing 106 Missions and 95 PAX Missions on a Mission Board with 7 Factions

That should make getting suitable Missions or loading up with them far easier.

I like that part where you won't be able to complete a stack of like missions by doing just one task. I personally don't like getting paid for work I didn't technically do.

Is that a different name for the Panther Clipper, or is it a different ship entirely?

Words never spoken by a contractor.


And no it's not the panther.
Might be a keelback version of the t9. Or just a typo.

Rule 1: Pillage. Then burn.
Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

Reading the thread behind that, I had an idea that it's a heavily armed Type-9. Not just a Keelback but something with weaponry like a Corvette or an Anaconda. Elite could use a good Q-Ship. Probably a Keelback though.

After reading the patch notes, I think I like that there will be legal salvage most of all - that and promises of more awesomeness to come in the future (I think I'll still wait for that - bring on Season 3 or wtf they call it).

PS. enjoy the bug fest.
It's time to give this another go.

Did I not literally post that a Dev had categorically said it wasn't the panther clipper lol
