Flying without due care and attention ...

Postby BarkingMad » Thu Jan 15, 2015 8:44 am

As I left a station yesterday I found myself behind a Python which went through the airlock with its landing gear down. I'd never noticed this before. It was strange. I was transfixed.

I accelerated through the airlock myself and the Python either didn't move like I was expecting it to, or it made an unexpected move, and we had a little bump. Only then did I look at the radar. A hollow box. The first (and only) one I've seen since playing in Mobius.

We had a brief chat (can't, for the life of me, remember the commanders name) and I apologised for the bump and we went on our respective ways. I now check the radar more often - just in case. It's difficult enough out there without slightly mental Cobra pilots ramming everything in their path.

Let's be careful ..... :oops:

Fly safe, use minimum seperation between ships at all times :)
Where are you flying?

I have had a couple of bumps with NPC ships pulling strange maneuvers right in front of me, seen more than a few NPC ships tangled with various parts of the stations, I recon they must have been overdoing the Onion Head

I have a screenshot somewhere where a very big NPC is stuck at the entrance with a tiny little free space left for me to squeeze my little ship out of the station. I managed to do it without hull damage. :)

I've bouncing around the systems near Vucub Huan, having fun at nav beacons. Give me 2 or 3ls-worth of space and you should be safe :)

It's a bit ironic that I should be admitting to this just a couple of days after making comments about Cmdr de Carabas' lack of flying ability. That'll teach me ;)
