    Hmm didn't try that. I quickly disregarded cinematic mode after playing some games in it. Let me play some movie on it later today and report back ;)

    Wow... really? From what you wrote this was totally legit, role play, Empire vs Federal kill. He even stated his intentions and you come here and rant? Maybe you should not be playing in open if losing a damn hauler is such a pain for you? Maybe this is entirely not a game for you?

    This. I really don't get the 50 or 100 rolls. To each their own but I've outfitted multiple ships with G5 everything, I rarely need more than 3 to 5 rolls to get within 5% of max. 5% is never going to change the outcome of any event. I guess I could see trying hard for that last 5% in jump range if you're planning a very long trip but at 1 jump ever minute and with a 5% range increase saving 1 jump in 20 means 1200 jumps before you save an hour's worth of jumps. If you spend 10 hours grinding mats you have to do 12,000 jumps before you earn back that 10 hours. For what it's worth this is my 192T trading python, 25LY dry, 19.77 LY fully loaded, plenty good for bubble trading and CG running.

    DragonsClaw replied to a thread [ED64 - 2.3.02] S Eridani mission board is broken in PC & Mac Bug Reports
    I have seen that in a few systems. One faction has 20+ missions on both boards, all others zero. It apparently resolves on the following bgs-tick, and does not seem to be related to the system state.

    I would think and hope that most people have more engaging and compelling ways of playing the game than resorting to using exploits or griefing exploiters. That isn't the best this game has to offer, and if it were, I don't understand why people would bother playing it in the first place.

    Thanks for the response. I might hook up the old computer tomorrow, been meaning to do that anyway. Last year I went to the trouble of making adhesive labels to stick on each TM button to help me remember what they do. (hey, I'm getting old!) For example, from playing around tonight I know the key I have labeled "Hardpoints" is the F8 key on the TM. I've been retired over a month now and have just burned out on the other games I've been playing, mostly modern tank and WW2 warship "freemium" stuff. Looking forward to something different.

    When you work for a faction, there will always be someone who'll try to sabotage your efforts, be it player or a NPC and thats how its supposed to work. Open space + faction working against each other + heavily armed ships = PvP fun hope this helps

    I see where you are coming from. I am not saying we encourage blockades of systems to counter a CG, but instead taking a page from thee Federal and Imperial Pleiades colonization CG's and have every CG have a "counter" CG, and whichever one has more progress/ its goal is reached first, is the one that drives the plot forwards. I do realize that I never really said that in my initial post, my bad, but if we want a player driven narrative, then we need a way for players to counter a CG effectively. If someone wants to use force to counter a trade CG, then it can still be done, but it is not effective in the long run, and having a simple counter CG would actually make it so you could decide the outcomes with actual influence, and not have just about every single CG finish and its goal achieved.

    The dev who codes the missions has said on these forums that the type of missions being used in Quince are an exploit. So those who say quince it is not an exploit, and the let me play my way argument are all moot.

    Thanks for that post. A good read. You're talking about the Ancient Indian Ganas, then the Ancient Greeks( Sparta & Athens) , then the Romans, then the English. In addition to many other peoples, and societies- for instance Pirates on the high seas used Democratic principles to elect leaders, share wealth commonly, & apportion risks and resources according to votes. Before the US was a nation. It's really not that "amazing" if a pile of other people all over the world have come up with the basic principles before. The reasons the American society survived while others didn't fare so well are related in a good book called Guns, Germs & Steel. The geography and natural resources played a huge role. So did seemingly random stuff, like infections. I do think that the US did establish some significant improvements on the original ideas - but it was more of an evolution of the ideas themselves than something radically new. The preamble to the Declaration of Independence is especially good. But compared...

    Bladefeather replied to a thread Cobra Mk IV Upgrade from Cobra MKIV? in Ships of Elite
    As others have said, the Asp is brilliant. You have good internals, decent hardpoints, great jump range, and an amazing cockpit. I wouldn't do combat in it due to it being way worse than the Vulture, but it is an amazing mission runner, trader, explorer, smuggler, and light combat vessel that will suit your needs for a long time to come.

    They don't need to be opposed. Some people want the ability to disrupt anything others are working together to achieve, but permitting them to do so is by no means required.

    Are you serious? A blank message is 'broken'? Not even close. Just pretend you never got the message in the first place and continue with the mission. Sure, the blank message is a bug, but there is absolutely nothing stopping you from going to the named system and completing the mission. When in the system, you'll eventually get many duplicate messages telling you the system body to go to, every time you enter a new instance (i.e. drop from supercruise, drop from glide, deploy the srv). They don't break the mission either (but they are bugs). 'baby', 'pram', 'toys' all spring to mind... and then I notice your avatar. Appropriate. I have no idea what you're talking about with the combat missions.

    CG's need to be opposed somehow... If someone is blockading a starport, killing trade ships that pass, than they are just trying to oppose a CG. I will not get into a rework of the CG system but it is a kill. TBH, if they wish to kill people who look like supporters of a rival group/ faction, then that is what they will do. Those who wish not to trade, but to blockade, shall proceed to blockade the starport, to stop trade and try and slow progress of one CG...
