    class 3b shieldcellbanks are a joke.... i definetly would go hrp + MRP as with all small ships, you gain much more hitpoints.

    I suggested this a long time ago for cityscape planets, like Earth, but it'd suck if we couldn't explore normal atmo/ELWs to their full extent. I always see ELWs with little islands out in the middle of giant oceans, and those are the kinds of places I want to visit some day.

    goemon replied to a thread Hi there in Introductions
    welcome to these forums :-) when i started to play, exploration was the only thing i was interested about ... for several hundred hours .... than i took interest in the backgroundsimulation and rare goods ... ... it took me really long to get into combat at all, didn't know whether i was flying forward or backwards in the beginning, and no idea where to point my ship. beam laser turrets helped me by acting as a laser pointer. from the three ranks combat was the last i made elite in, and while i still can't stand more than an hour in res or CZ, i can now take down nearby all NPC in an eagle and appreciate how much one can learn and experience by simply shooting stuff :D - but still prefer the more slow paced way of playing by exploring the galaxy in and out of the bubble. make sure not to miss the exploration subforum here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/forumdisplay.php/117-Elite-Exploration it is the most wonderfull corner of the forums, but don't tell anyone!

    CMDR Nef replied to a thread I'm not gonna make it! in Xbox One
    There was a time in Destiny, where it was really all I had to play, so I had three Guardians. Tha meant, 3x the grinding per day. I lasted doing that for a while, but eventually grew bored, and just mained my Hunter. Still have those old characters, though. They're basically backup storage now, haha.

    You don't say? Hmmm, maybe I'll poke around Maia again for a bit... I'd really like to see one of these "aliens" first hand before I leave for a DRX checkpoint that I can't easily get back from.

    I'm sceptical about your suggestions as from experience after fsd range increase engineering was introduced. if you "just want to be there", 3 times FSD charging will feel as long as previously 7 times FSD charging... no matter how long/short any sequence is. it's perceived duration, not measurable time. the 20 minutes landing on a 9,8 G world is an adventure, and doesn't need to be any shorter. departing from a body while flying towards an amazing combination of rings and a nebula isn't too long, but a reason to breath in the view. the 15K ls to a station flying a shieldless mining ship full of painite, platinum and palladium is an adventurous travel. but flying several times a day to that 2000 ls station to pick up more missions .... or doing 6 jumps to that engineer base because you just need to get two more ammo increased cargo racks ... or starting from a base after finishing a mission just to dock before calling it a day, destination obscured, another 2 minutes spent supercruising out of...

    The Asp FSD will slot straight into the DBX. Just swap them over and see how much more range you get.

    goemon replied to a thread Diamondback Explorer Diamondback Explorer Owners Club in Ships of Elite
    beam: highest DPS, but worst DPE (damage per energy) - anyway, an efficient mod will take care of that, and the DBEs class 4 powerdistributor can handle it, more so as missiles draw next to nothing. - you might even try a (grade 1) longrange beam, as for the seekers you want some distance... Thermal Cascade won't help you much PVE, but at least it won't cost you DPS. i can imagine that build being quite effective against small ships - sideys, Adders, eagles... against anything larger, you'll run into the problem of missiles not doing much hulldamage. i know what i'm talking about as i had some fun last week with a viper mkIII seeker missile boat in CZ ... maybe shoot out thrusters (and shieldgenerator?) with them, and than use the beam to kill the powerplant. anyway, will be interesting to hear your experience! heat will be close to no problem on a DBE wth that loadout.

    +39% = 139% ;-) ... i got a 139,42% roll ... on the d-class thrusters of my trading cutter. dooh! my assumption is that secodary caps out at +10%, which would make 139,9% the best you can get. but i have not seen somebody doing 500 dirty drive rolls in beta, like zieman has done with FSD rolls in live...

    nope, that's pretty much it. i go trading in boom systems and scan any system security anaconda of dangerous and elite rank from sc. i also jump into enconded USS for private data beacons. Unexpected Emission Data spawns very rarely. searching for it can be frustrating - make a habit out of scanning high ranked system security vessels in systems you are not allied, to collect a stash (i currently have 17).

    i have not seen a dirty drive G5 roll above 139% optimal multiplier - is more even possible?

    i suggest visiting skardee 1 and after that re-think clean drive vs. dirty drive. or HD 49368 if you are more up for an exploration trip. the heat-increase is noticeable under extreme outer heat or when the thrusters are working heavily because of higher-G, or both. skardee 1 is for heat (and some G-force) what achenar 3 is for high-G testing in the bubble. generally resting heat will be higher with clean drive because of upped power usage - which is a bit counter-intuitive - but it makes quite a different in extreme conditions. i couldn't take neither my surface exploration courier nor my DBE to skardee 1 without heatdamage with dirty drives.

    note to us: a personal trainer explained to me some year back, that it is a myth you have to do at least 20-30 minutes every second day - any activity is better than no activity! it's true for elite as well as for excercises....

    Yep, all the time. If I'm not feeling it I stop doing it. I must say though, the only times I have felt like that have been when I've been flying an Asp Explorer.

    If you're unsure of where to stand, stand behind Sir Pooh. He has the +1 face paint of defense. If not Pooh, you can always stand in the doorway of no-seeing. It's pretty sturdy. It's where my brother likes to hangout, at least.

    I'm in and around Cubeo grinding Empire rank and prismatic shields. Not sure what I'll do next. Hope against hope that we'll get Horizons soon I guess.
  2. I'm active all over. Usually I am between Chuanabosso & LHS 3447 when I am in the bubble. If I am trading I am in empire space. If I take a day to do Fuel Ratting then I am sitting at Fuelum. I do spend most of my time outside the bubble.
