    That might sound a bit harsh. My suggestions would be: If you don't have experiences with writing books, then just start and DO IT! You will soon feel whether writing a story in the ED universe is really your cup of tea, or if it just has been a quick idea. You will have had your fun and enjoyed it in any case, and that's what is most important. So: Don't actually worry about licenses until you know that that step will be necessary. First of all, enjoy writing! Oh and there is always the option to write good solid sci fi outside ED, even if it is basically close to and inspired by ED. And if you really feel the need to get a permission, why not contact Frontier support by labelling it "Fan Fiction", and ask them about Do's and Don'ts. An official book is one thing, Fan Diction like those published in magazines or for free is quite another matter. But most important: Get your pen / keyboard, switch on the music LOUDn and WRITE AWAY!! (and yes, I am a writer by profession).

    You may be actually right. I took the mission with my Clipper tonight and the Anaconda actually did some serious damage. Anyway, it is too easy.

    It is working. Friend just got Earl near Cubeo. And whether the missions were working or not: The Rep was still going up. So at worst, not getting the rank-up mission is a minor problem. "Takes a lot more rep than one rank level to get to Duke or Rear Admiral." - Duke-Rear-Admiral Arcana.

    To give the OP his due, hes merely echoing the sentiments of others who have complained about the nonsensical crime and punishment implications for picking up a small bounty through trivial things such as a datapoint scan mission or having a fender bender with a kamakaze NPC in a mailslot. So I fail to see why you are giving them such a hard time?

    I am with you there, I posted a feature request for a "Fleet paint pack" so that a themed paint scheme could be applied to all ships owned by a commander about 18 month ago. Certainly the current cost of matching a paint scheme to a fleet of ships is way too expensive.

    I genuinely think that sometimes the forums are better than the game. Edit: Also, can I haz your stuff too?

    The thing is, the Elite Dangerous universe is intellectual property. Frontier quite literally owns it, and with that, they have the legal right (draconian right no less) to say who can, and cannot, publish fiction set in their universe. As harsh as I'm sounding, I'm actually trying to help. You see, as an outsider, you'll have to really impress Frontier. You'll need a portfolio of original work for sure. Nobody gets started in professional novel writing with a franchise book. They always start with original work. You need to show you have the full capacity to create, and writing in a decades-established franchise won't cut it.

    The instant nature of it is kind of the point although I wouldn't entirely oppose a cooldown period before accessing a different ship. As far as immersion, it's already been blown in similar ways for me. - Multi-crew anywhere instantly. - NPC Crew magically following your non-crew capable ship. - etc. At the end of the day you're right, these things are subjective, and it's unlikely to come to pass anyway. But I do honestly think it would help FD cover up that fundamental flaw that the game primarily rewarding engagement with repetitive game loops for significant periods, a.k.a. grind, and open up many more varied gameplay options for players who may not otherwise want to fully commit to them.

    Yes please! Even if you hold the trigger, I'd like my weapons to cycle, instead of firing all at once. Although, that's only really useful for pulse lasers. Lol

    DSS and AFMU. This assumes no change in scanning mechanics by then. . The DSS tells you what materials are present on landable worlds, so you can find sources of materials for yourself and others without being dependent upon advance scouts having surveyed the location. (From DW1 there was Akira Masakari's Prospecting and Cartography Public Service thread but only regions close to the waypoints were surveyed and you might want to go looking in between waypoints or on the way home). . The AFMU will be needed to repair your modules in the event you actually do some fighting. Those ships both have weak shields and are only good against other small ships (I've used both as mission runners and runabouts and don't take on anything more than an Asp, although I'm not very good) and whilst other CMDRs can now use Hull Repair Limpets to repair your hull, your module damage needs an AFMU for repairs (and that might need a couple of refills if you have a lot of damage). . As to which ship I would take between Cobra...

    At least they're available at Tani Hub in Ainunnicori at the moment, maybe even discounted as it's a LYR system. But I can't remember where I unlocked them at the moment... :-/

    I often leave arsenic on the ground. It's almost not worth the time it takes to pick it up. Get that polonium. Trade down, not up or laterally.
