    Duedy replied to a thread Painite in Engineers Discussion
    Painite got even rarer with the introduction of new commodities in asteroids. I used to find those 40% back in my extreme cutter mining days. Since then I now have a python as I'm too bored to hunt in a cutter for these commodities, dumping 100s of tons of the garbage minerals/metals into space just to get 650 tons of the top Ps. If you have a chance get a wing of players all with a mining laser. Mining 1 asteroid give upto 4 times more fragments. If one collects the others scout and help mining a 10% Painite will be the same as 10%*(number in wing). I don't think you need to be in a wing as I have stolen fragments from npcs so they don't have illegal tags till they become a canister. That should help getting that 10 tons and time passing with just chatting together in TS or discord.

    Hey CMDRs o7, PanPiper has been working hard on tracking the lifecycles of barnacles. It's been a requested feature but it was difficult to implement at first... Thanks to talks with him and his patience in explaining the details, the barnacles sheet now tells you if a barnacle is RIPE or Barren, based on their LifeCycle. It also tells you Defences and number of Meta Alloy spikes available. If you can, please comment on barnacles if they are ripe, how many Meta Alloys they make and what they are guarded by.

    There's lots of options on controls. And many filters on display of some things, so I think a detail filter on ship scans would be a good idea. Throw in filtering out Avatars on coms panel. (Still in beta, but they have now removed them for for general coms chatter at least, which is am improvement.) As for stupid names for npcs, I'm not sure if many of the names aren't derived from players names and are just in the mix with misnamed stars for films etc. So now and again you get a suggestive or rude one. They're not usually too bad unless you look close. 😉

    Yep, and it's a win-win because they go off to their rebuy screen cackling about how you're getting blown up by the station while you just shrug, mentally call out "sucker!" and dock in peace :D

    Goals even within a tight knit group can differ vastly. I'm not trying to shoot this down btw just pointing out potential problems with the execution.

    It just means that the Formidine Rift is in space, not on a planet. Any player of E: D 1.x can find the Formidine Rift, that way it is accessible even to the three people who play on Macs ;D There are many clues/story to the Formidine Rift mystery being added to the game, some may require E: D 2.x to find, but whilst the clues are helpful to find the Formidine Rift, they are not necessary. At least, that's my understanding :)

    Totally agree. I posted this fact over a year ago that the controller input makes a huge difference. FDev are designing for gamepads with binary/digital type controls. And the interdiction game shows this very well: if you use a mouse (or gamepad) you'll likely win as the response is practically instant. It's easy to stay in the bullseye. Use a joystick and you'll more than likely lose to a mouse player every time; the joystick input and response is lagging likely due to how FDev are dealing with input devices. Test it - try a joystick then try a mouse when interdicting - and you'll see just how different they are.

    I do intend to get them, but I don't think they will help if you need bifocals/verifocals.

    It is stunning, isn't it? :-) I gave away my DK2 (run from a single Nvidia 780M for those who are wondering) a while ago to a better home and kinda miss it. Yes,it dug into my nose - but maybe I just have a big nose! :-) That sense when you pass a planet in supercruise, moving around outpost, ducking your head (literally!) when leaving a Coriolis in a big ship. Everything has *size*! Just awe-inspiring, it really is.

    bart replied to a thread [Ships] Banned Ship Names in 2.3 Beta Discussions
    Question here.................. When they implement this is there a system where once a name has been taken that's it? or can we all call our ships by the same name? (stupid idea but in the context of the question you get where I'm coming from!)

    But can they hit you and push you over 100ms? I suppose we just gotta approach at like 50ms .

    What's the point of having these random ships moving at subluminal speed which offer no gameplay and make zero sense? Why would anyone travel between planets like this anyways? I'm at procyon grinding for the allied status with the sirius corp. I swear I've come across 7/10 convoys and the rest were degraded emissions and that kind of empty instances with some goodies floating around. I can't even do missions to rank up because the faction bulletin is empty, switched mode half a dozen times and still 0/0. For the love of what's holy Frontier, stop putting stuff that doesn't add anything to the game because you think it looks cool. It's already painful to rely on a rng system to hope for a uss that contains the stuff we need to progress, amp up the possibility to find distress calls and lvl 3+ weapons detected.

    I suspect a fairly tight knit group of interns would be self regulating. :p Also if the players are cycling every few weeks progression really won't matter. Could even just use the acc for CQC really... It's more something to do and enjoy together whilst you are there than something long term. Then if the people like it as Shar said they'll look to getting their own accounts when returning home.

    my thoughts, no. i view it as a challenge of piloting - by which i mean docking & SC - and smuggling rather than whose got the most mats.
