    I've spent a fair amount of time in outbreak systems and never once caught space herpes.

    Yes ... but not all of it, as some of it isn't accurate, or has since been superseded by later changes. See also the BGS announcements in the News forum. Things are definitely stabilising and becoming more understood, but it's probably going to be a couple of months before that's finished. These now can end quicker than 7 days if one side gets too large a lead. Expansion is not yet affected by Happiness.

    "Scene"? Entire movie, surely? Theres a line between "subverting audience expectations" and just completely taking the pee out of everything that a franchise has constructed and Rian Johnson crossed that line like a Panzer heading into Poland. Objectively, you can look at pretty-much EVERY scene in TLJ and find fault with it. Every scene has something that either takes a dump on existing lore or is just flat-out nonsense.

    I get the feeling they seed stuff like this in the event a story has to be reverse engineered, or as an emergent play tactic the can be capitalized later.

    Agony_Aunt replied to a thread Being FRIENDLY in OPEN?! in PvP
    I'm always friendly in open. I also think those looking to make kills should also be friendly, and I think many are, if you engage with them right. In other words, don't start screaming at them about what you would do to their mother, but laugh off the kill and say GG. Its all part of the risk of flying in open. However, personally, i think those who are out to make kills could often be better in their own communiations, including at least sending a RP reason for the attack prior to commencing. Otherwise NPCs are providing more interaction than players, and that's pants. If they are playing a murder hobo, at least a "I'm the Dread Murder-hobo Agony, and i'm out to kill everyone! Prepare to die!"

    While I am waiting for a 4A shield to transfer I decided I might need to explain my rational for the GM settings and using the same start-end points for the runs. As I already noted, the NOT VISITED will insure that I only go systems I have not been before. The MOST FUEL EFFICIENT will, if I understand it correctly, plot the course over the shortest route between the start and the end. Using the same start and end point will, and skipping the short jumps within 100 LY of my civilization point, should therefore, eventually result in me having explored kind of a cone of space between the start and the end hopefully visiting every system inside the cone. At some point I should find myself jumping past my end point to find an unvisited system to get to the end point. When that happens I plan to move the end point to something in the same direction as the original and about the same distance. This should make the exploration cone get bigger and bigger every time I switch to a new end point while ensuring I...

    I disagree it is a fake outrage at all. And I must repeat I was there too. It was and is indeed well deserved. I personally do not hold much stock in it and will try it again if VR mskes an appearance but trying to rewrite history ignoring/minimising how HG got all the funds they got is quite disingenuous though and a great disservice for the customer base imho.

    And then griefers and gankers will learn to circumvent/live with it, and the players who were relying on it to save them will whine and cry because it has negatively affected them.

    I'm sure Viz comic used to do a short called "Celebrities on the bog" "There's more and it's worse!" "Any more than 3 years and it gets stale" Did I see the Banu Defender (a never before thought of ship which was meant to help with the design of the "already nearly complete since 2016 BMM" has been pushed back another update?) When will we ever see the majestic BMM ply its trade between star system...

    If you chill and enjoy while doing it, it's fun. The thing is though, that once you get say G3 thrusters, you immediately want G5s. They are THAT good! Then it's either telling yourself to relax, or go grinding while throwing bad words towards FDev, Guardians, Thargoids and Marco. Especially Marco ;) @sinisalo Back then (a few months ago ;)) I didn't know that you could synth stuff. At least I had no idea how to do it. I think going back to pick up more SRVs was ~500 ly, and that's quite a lot of jumping without the FSD booster. I remember getting back to base, buying the FSD booster, and then just go jumping while saying "Wow!". Maybe that's why you have to go get the blueprint outside the Bubble. Appreciation U know.

    Dockable megaships appear to be limited to 500 LY / week. Non-dockable megaships can go faster - the largest single distance on record is by the Hogan Class Bulk Freighter ELI-272, which goes from Colonia to Kaline (~22,000 LY) in a single step (next departure 23 May), though takes 2 weeks rather than the usual 1 week to refuel between stops. I doubt this ship will need to make much use of those capabilities, though.

    Everything in this game is too forgiving. You can escape any NPC simply by boost-boost-jumping away. NPC Combat is a joke. Pirated NPCs will literally just sit there and let you pirate them. Markets are so stable that it's virtually impossible to lose money when trading. Factions will pay you to find worthless space rocks far-far away that no faction should ever care about. You can be wanted, with a hold full of the most ludicrous contraband, and you can slip into port just be going silent for a moment (and the traffic controller is like "meh".) Authority ships are reactive only (they should be all over bounties like stink on...). Stations are totally passive unless you provoke them.

    To be honest, I only memorised the large pads. Lol When I blast in using a medium ship, I'm usually quite lost without using the compass. Small ships I'm hopeless, I almost never fly them. :D

    V3 hits 715 top speed using an advanced thruster. Some cat was talking about 758 top speed, but I have no idea how that happens.

    I can't fathom how you can have so many firegroups. I have two in a general purpose Python. If I install a DSS, I put the scanners in their own group, making three. Primary fire: Large frag cannons and FSD interdictor. Secondary fire: medium frag cannons Primary fire: Discovery scanner. Secondary fire: collector limpet controller. I guess if you had some other weapons or a KWS, you'd have maybe one more firegroup. I'd suggest that if you have six firegroups and they can't be rationalised into fewer, you're an edge case. Active scanners always require deployed hardpoints. If you're honking around a starport, that's not reflective of the vast majority of gameplay - you're literally only doing it because you're familiarising yourself with your controls, so again it's an edge case - and the flight controller might have a moan at you over the flavour-comms, but nothing will actually happen unless you shoot at the station or other ships while in the no fire zone.

    This is true, however if TDW is anywhere near the bubble, even garbage planets are usually 'discovered' just so the explorer can put their name on it. If it's in some random SYNUEFE XY-Z 23-666 red dwarf system 1000ly away, then we'll be lucky to have the gas giant explored. Interesting fact: I import all the EDSM exploration data into my own database. In 2018-March there was 15gig of data representing all exploration from 2014-2018. In 2019-March there was 60gig of data. So in 1 year, we added triple the amount of data as had been collected in 4 years.
