The ORCA may be a big ship but if your going to travel the galaxy why not do it in style, plus for her size she is fast and very maneuverable. Not fully engineered yet but getting a 35ly jump, 420m/s thrusters boosting to over 500. Oh and thats with a defensive loadout of 6C shields, full set of lasers, hull and module reinforcement etc. Most other systems are A rated too. Still just light alloys though. Her power plant and distributor are lightly engineered but can hold the shields up and keep all weapons firing constantly against any small and most medium NPCs. Even held up fine in a threat 4 thargoids encounter as I just wanted to see what they looked like for myself. Really is an underrated ship in my opinion.
but to the topic in question...
I suppose I'll just have to make my way back down the cliff face again to find a flat(ish) spot to park. I might try and jump and sure if I miss I'll probably just bounce my way to the bottom of the mountain anyway. Should probably record it for a lols real on youtube
I could log between ED and Horizons but I prefer to address the issue I'm having in game rather than do that. I also like to collect EVERYTHING I see as (so far anyway) its helped with my engineering grind as I already have the majority of materials I need (other than stupid wake scans, like watching buses drive past and writing down their numbers). Oh and yes I know I don't need the cargo for engineering but once I've picked it up its mine and I am not letting go, well not until I get to a station and sell it anyway.
I do struggle to drive the SRV as the default keyboard controls I find a bit odd. It is a bit easier to put 4 pips to engines and thrust around so I'll try using that more. Really need to get another flight stick after giving my last one to my son who is also playing ED now. I find the keyboard controls slow to react at times. Probably just me but the analogue input from the stick seem to give you far better control and I think it would be especially useful for the rather twitchy SRV.
