    I'm definitely not communicating well today. What I mean to say here is that there aren't enough mechanics in the game right now to justify the existence of an Exploration rank. Sincerely, I think Frontier should let us optionally request an Exploration rank reset just for the new update, so we can experience it fully. Or maybe I'll just get an alt account to play it.

    Exactly. If POIs are just 'more of the same' then pretty soon they'll be treated like USSs are now - generally ignored unless you're looking for something specific. For me, personally, this is why losing the instaHonk is only half the problem with the changes. Having no reason the fly around the system is as bad, or possibly worse.

    If I don't grab the next naval mission (it's combat and above my ken) and carry on doing Empire missions anyway, how does thus affect my next naval mission? Not at all? Do I need to complete a naval mission before experience mounts up again to get me to the next rank?

    Took a T-10 out there, took a while to find a spot. Can't wait till we can launch a small shuttle, land, then get out and walk around these points of interest. Rather that then driving a 4 tonne off road truck around an archaeological site..

    I still carry both, even though there have been times when I went shieldless. But I don't look at the extra weight now, I just use the axiom, better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it. That's why I am out on the fringe now with my 75 Ly Conda, I finally got over the poor SC handling of the ship and decided I would rather have the jump range then to worry how the ship handles, so it takes a little longer to turn it around when you over shoot a target, oh well, I'm not really in a hurry anyway. I could have eeked out a few lightyears by using shorter thrusters and PD, but I got them as small as I want for now and I can still boost. The shields are just enough to cushion the landings, and the heatsink I have lightweighted since I don't need the extra charge, can always synthesize reloads if I need them. There have been times I've gotten lazy and been pulled into a sun, that's when they come in handy. The repair limpets are nice, but they can't repair the power plant, and if...

    A lot of the engineering reduces integrity, which could have that effect, but really doesn't.

    If you read the Microsoft announcement you might be less excited about keyboard and mouse. While they are adding support for it they are leaving it up to the developer to choose weather or not they want to use it in their game. Granted most DEVs listen to their fan base and will but not all. The folks saying ED is getting it is laughable, FDEV can't fix simple bugs in Xbox and PS4 that we've been complaining about for a year now. You really think they are going to put the one hamster concerned with consoles on rolling out keyboards and mice?

    When I'm done with Dust City, I'm considering making a Sky City. How far up (number of blocks) do you estimate you managed to stack?

    So if ship movements are updated on Wednesdays, does this mean no amount of 'goid hunting can possibly change the outcome for the Thursday tick? I've been working hard to bring Argestes up in kill count, but it seems like folk do not like that system this week. The reported kill counts show HR 784 far ahead of Argestes. Is it worth hunting Argestes today or have the megaship prophets spoken certain doooooom?

    Also I think volcanic sites still spawns at like 4 - 6 per planet so dont even bother looking for em, just visit one of the tourist marked ones.

    Yes. It's grindy but it gets easier and easier, I'm at the point where I have more than I ever need. But it is hard at first. Looking back, at least I feel the work was rewarded.

    You can also do that whilst coming out of sc into glide mode ( or what ever its called :D), lets you cover large areas in a short time

    A bit of power creep aint so bad, but I am not going to argue that what we have is "only a bit". Engineering should make your ship less reliable (or massively heavy). Ever had a heavily customized car ? You spend more time under the bonnet or waiting for a tow truck that actually driving it. AND it costs a fortune to repair. Lots of ways you could have done it. Random malfunctions, slow accumulation of damage, something else new and properly integrated.

    I did it once in Anaconda, but it's really hard to find good landing spot near the structures. AspX will be way better and DBX hits the sweet spot. Just don't forget to equip point defence.

    I certainly remember when you could pick up a free one from Hutton Orbital! :D No, but seriously, I remember when you could fly round all the Sol stations, picking up Data Delivery missions to Hutton for several million credits each. Stacking 15 to 20 of them was no problem. Over the course of a week or two I easily made enough for an Annie, my first ever big ship! Wonder why you can't do that any more? *sigh* btw I think this thread should be read with Dvorak's "New World" Symphony playing in the background. And perhaps a glass of Chateau de Chasselas to go with it.
