    If you are not planning on being hostile, bring an AX xeno scanner along... that will decode those numbers and come up with a ship type for you, also a field neutraliser is handy, especially if you drop 5 meta alloys infront of the thargoid It summons another one... but it uses its shutdown pulse ..... (also handy if you're hauling escape pods or anything thargoid related and you get hyper-interdicted) Saying this though... they might turn hostile anyway especially if you get too close) so 5A thrusters for your Asp and tune them at palin to lvl 5 Bill And always be prepared to run...... some seem to be far more hostile than others.....

    CryTek will have the last laugh. If CryTek loses this case and CIG counter-sues then CryTek will definately go bankrupt. It appears that CryTek has the upperhand though, CIG is still using the CryEngine, that is noticable in their latest videos.

    relayer replied to a thread The Thargoid sadness in Aliens
    I repped you & agree with your points, but just wanted to focus on this part of your post: It seems to me that you are playing the game, your way, blaze trail etc. Elite has never been a shooter or an RTS or a 4X or any other kind of game - it is unique to itself (and having spawned many imitations). I think this confuses people. I don't find the story too slow (for instance, how much did we (all) know of what was going on in Syria before the last couple years?) - things are out at the edges of the human bubble. Between trickle-in reports from Commanders encountering the Thargoids, the information about INRA, the alien wrecks, the Scavengers, etc and the general level of understanding what these things are and mean would really not be all over the galaxy, I wouldn't expect a newsletter owned by the Pilot's Federation to be trumpeting the news, especially in the light of some of their (rumored) past actions. Sure, we're on the internet & we get all this breaking news from players/Commanders, but...

    You can still rewatch it via the Twitch link (broken into 3 or 4 segments), and I believe they said they would upload it to YouTube at some point. Last time I checked the donation page was still available as well. I only watched the last 8 hours or so live, but saw the rest over the last couple of days. Some very funny bits and a lot of good stuff in the milestone reveals/behind the scenes, and the SE videos really show what a difference this charity makes - glad to have contributed towards their work.

    Yeah you might be right. We find out later that some players have been offered secret missions by the Thargoids to demoralise everyone through murdering refugee rescue ships and I'll end up eating my words. For now though I'll call it what it looks like. Salt-mining.

    This would be my first trading CG; would it be worth picking up a relatively stock Type 6 or similar from Colonia and grabbing commodities via surrounding systems for it? Saves the annoyance of dismantling my ASP and gives me an excuse to pick up a new toy....

    Mrat started a thread Studying Thargoids in Aliens
    So today I went to help passengers from the damaged stations. When I started getting bored, I explored the nearby areas, and found two things. A giant frieghter that had run into 'goids, the escape pods of which I sent to the local search and rescue contact, and a capital (fed) ship distress signal, with a thargoid pillaging around. Weirdly, the 'goid was interested in any of the military equipment or documents, and instead just picked up randomness things, seemingly, to study them. Also of note, is that upon scanning the creature, some sort of numerical code appeared. Was the creature trying to communicate, I wonder. I am now throughly fascinated by the thargoids, and wish to study them. I'm planning on using an Asp Explorer, as it should have enough internals to hold all of my thargoid research equipment. I plan to study them quietly, for I do not wish to frighten the animals.

    Well there don't seem to be any signals coming from it. But if it was an alien spaceship, filled by fossilised insectoids, it would presumably have been dead and powerless for millions of years.

    Not easy to get those inside the station in the (ahem) heat of the moment ! +1 The Cobra IV works well as a rescue craft for picking up a few people; it has plenty of internal slots for cargo/passengers and is fairly small and manoeuverable. Also, it comes in a ready-painted emergency color :)

    I just repped you for the title of this thread alone. I was in my living room browsing the forums and saw the title. I just laughed out loud

    So, we're saying that these non-aggressive Thargoids just happened to be in IR-W D1-55 and happened across the cargo ship and it started taking damage and catching fire and bits started falling off it... and then they went and did exactly the same thing to the station? I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice if the situation was ambiguous but it's getting less and less plausible that the Thargoids are intended as anything more than a "big bad". Also, after visiting The Oracle, I was disappointed to find a distinct lack of Thargoids. Might've been more fun if a Thargoid ship showed up every so often so players would have to work together(ish) to engage them in combat while others carried out the rescues.

    Seconded. I hope we can fight Thargoids around stations too.

    Euryale, Gorgon, I think there a few more things that turn people to stone. As was pointed out to me on Discord, the Cyclops in Castlevania does turn people to stone. :) Maybe they're going for a broader mythology.

    Hmmm New ATV: Whole thing is at for those interested. My favorite bit is at 21:40, where he discusses putting data into Cr*obvious cut* Lumberyard. Cue awkward laugh. Sorry, Chris and Ortwin, when did you say you switched engine? Seems odd your staff appear to have forgotten about it...

    Medium ships are the way to go. Saved 450 souls in my Python tonight. No issues with landing or traversing the debris. Can't speak for all but this was a fantastic experience, thank you FDev.. oh and ignore "you know who". He never talks any sense...
