    @sollisb please read this thread concerning redundancy legacy warnings: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/346941-Please-remove-the-redundant-legacy-special-effect-warnings-from-NPC-attacks?highlight= You are being struck by unmodified plasma, triggering the thermal attack warning, or unmodified rail guns, triggering the impulse attack warning. There are 2.75 million purchasers of this game. Since engineered specials were removed from the game in version 2.1.1 not one single video or screenshot has emerged of an NPC using any special, and if they did there would be thousands of such vids, because specials like phasing, dispersal, thermal cascade and reverberating cascade produce immediately recognisable outcomes. @Frontier Two Developers have posted in this thread. Please check out my suggestions thread linked above. Here yet again we have the evidence that the needless continuing inclusion of these redundant legacy warnings is causing confusion. They have been, for over a year. Please...

    Did some preplanning for my trip to Mr. Palin lately, shopped two 8D Thrusters for the Cutter, changed one of them for the old (and too small) 7Ds and took my Python out to Maia to let him fiddle about her thrusters. At his lab I initiated the transfer of the 8D and the 7D thrusters to maia and left. Took some missions out there, harvested some barnacles, played around a bit and left finally. Only to come back in the Cutter and get the 3 thrusters engineered, planning to put the 7D in the Type-9 after transferring it back to my homebase system. Oh and I bought some thrusters of different types and sizes for various ships that were already shipped to Mr.Palin. Planning to take the Clipper on my next trip out there to get all those thrusters engineered. And yes, I try and get all ships engineered properly, at least for my personal needs.

    I'm looking at quad nacelles, the pylons from a clipper and a flying bridge... The front is shaped like Voyager's saucer, and the windows all over say it's between 2x and 3x the size of an Anaconda. Edit: Actually, on another look... about 8x the size of a conda.

    I've so far never had a problem with hardware upgrades, worst case was that I had to call a hotline and tell them that I was only using the license on a single system. How did you buy the Win10 license, normal retail (including an update to a retail version), or are you updating a pre-installed OEM version of 7?

    2 thermal resistant, 2 heavy duty and 2 resistance augmented A-class shield boosters seem to have done the trick. An NPC FDL pilot got quite snippy with me. :)

    For me it's look like FDL but from Gutamaya, compare to size and cockpit place from nose of the ship ;)

    Some of the Engineers need you to do things for a minor faction or group they are associated with, to get that mobs blessing you have to get a certain rep with them then they will give you a mission which once you have done it will let you visit the engineer without getting shot by the defence grid. example: https://inara.cz/galaxy-engineer/9/

    On the ones i have each toe is a separate axis that springs back to the bottom when you take pressure of it but ive got them joined together into a single virtual axis. This way i can use them for forwars and backward thrust, left for back, right for forward. The yaw axis is self centering and just works.

    Disclaimer: I am not a combat pilot. Not by a long shot. That said, as much as I love my Vulture for bounty hunting, I just couldn't get it to work well in a CZ. I'd usually last a couple of minutes, maybe get one or two kills, then have to jump out as my shields dropped and I started taking major damage. I recently had to farm up a million spacebux worth of bonds for Colonel Androgynous, so I took my FAS with some fairly minimal engineering - mostly to make it a massive hull tank. And I gotta say, it absolutely rocked. Dropping into a high intensity CZ, seeing a bunch of Corvettes and then signing up to the other side, and within about twenty minutes including travel times, the million was mine for the taking. The FAS is well known for its lack of shields, but mine never even dropped, and I only rock some 250-ish mj with about 25-30% resists. A big problem though is that you need to grind the Federal rank to unlock it for purchase.

    My imagination wrt to the AI Relics only extends so far as to the AI Relics being a hacking mechanism helping to decrypt the SAP 8 Core container. That being one assumption, other ones are that the Sap 8 Core Container can be decrypted by the Thargoid base map room, and the SAP 8 Core Container crystal shards actually contains pertinent map information.

    The FDL does have a much better shield ratio compared to hull mass though..

    Hmm I don't think this is a good idea since the new OS may think I am trying to install to a 2nd PC and invalidate my cd-key. Upgrading Mainboard is equivalent to a new computer for M$oft. The only reason I may want to do that (and refrain from entering CD-KEY & activating during installation) is to check the installation media is working.

    Furthermore, based off the non-3.0 we got shown at Gamescom, no way can that even be called an MVP. Half of what they showed even at that point was not coming in 3.0 (eg: faceware - not that is necessary for even a 1.0 release), but then we hear that since then they have been cutting features that are being blocked by bugs. At this point in time, i don't even think its clear what 3.0 will actually contain, but certainly nothing that will allow it to be called an early access MVP. The media would eviscerate them.

    Frontier's approach of a materials agent, for trading, wasn't a bad solution; allows for trading, just not between players. Because this is the bit that creates mass exploitation. As soon as an 'economy' exists between players, it starts. And saying "well we won't know if we don't try" ignores the very established pattern that in virtually every instance this is enabled, it happens. As soon as the game introduces a way to profit directly from mechanics, people will. Automatically. Because they can. Because this is how the world works. If there is money to be made from a thing, then there will be. Pretending Elite would be any different, is farcical. Frontier may be many things; and the lack of trading of certain things may be irksome, it has however stalled the inevitable account farming, theft and so on that player economies have. When something is a very well established pattern, it's exceedingly wise to consider that pattern. Eleventy developers have tumbled down the same stairs, all in a...

    but I'm a little confused. Which - if any - of the following are correct? 1) If Farseer issues an invitation to visit her, this does not prevent rank-up missions for the feds/empire from appearing. However, if you go to Farseer and she asks for the meta-alloys, that counts as a mission, and while you're off trying to find and return them, you won't see fed/empire rank-up missions at the same time? 2a) You accept a rank-up mission for the feds/empire. Then Farseer issues an invitation. If you go to her before completing the naval rank-up missions, she won't issue a demand for meta-alloys, because she's aligned with the Federation?
