    Got my 15 (I know...) Elite Ranking cap on, hours of power metal to listen to, a Sidewinder, and a whole galaxy to explore! What shall I do?! :D

    Please tell me OP, that you have some sort of HOTAS? It transforms Elite.

    BotW would have been one of the biggest games ever had Nintendo released it on all platforms. In my opinion, Nintendo needs to forget hardware. That stuff is bad. If they shift focus to 100% software, games of course... I'd think they'd be huge. Especially as I suspect a lot of their child customers of the 80's are now on more powerful platforms.

    We've seen people get SRV's into space. Had a thought. Would it be possible to get an SRV to a station?

    Perhaps, but for some mad reason I like it, and think it's okay. YMMV

    Actually in my case you can blame ESO. Good quality MMO once you know what you're actually doing.

    With the buffs from 2.3 I'm seriously considering one again. I loved flying it before but the lack of internals and internal sizes made me give it up. Now with an extra C2 and a C4 to C5 upgrade I'm really thinking of another. The agility is insane and modded it gets decent speeds as well. And the PD with the 2M/2S weapons just means that you can fire forever!!!! I could literally burn out my ship using beams before running out of energy for them. 2M/2S for a medium ship isn't that impressive but when you don't have energy issues and the agility of the ASP-S means that your time on target is awesome meaning you can put out some serious damage with it whilst still dodging stuff from you prey!

    When you select the fighter and 'deploy' it should give you the option of selecting the crew or yourself. Does it give you that option or is it just yourself that can launch in the fighter?

    I've had several dreams that came true. It's really creepy, and is why I believe in being able to see the future.

    Thats one of the reasons why I'm not bothered by the Keelbacks slug like agility. If I want fast agile pew in that launch and control the fighter :) Just don't have frags on your KB or your crew member will shoot you!

    Madrax573 replied to a thread Meta Discussion Cheap as chips fun in Ships of Elite
    Well after a few hours I can happily say that it does alright in the ol' RES's. The one thing that I can't stand however is the limited visibility though!! It moves nicely, has decent turn rates etc and seems to handle a medium weapon pretty well so it has some decent options. I think with a PA or Railgun in the medium it would also have a decent finishing punch to it but the visibility is awful for combat. I use headlook a lot to trakc target etc but there is no point in the Adder as you can't see anything thats outside your standard forward vision! As much as I want to stick with the adder I've upgraded to a ship I do know quite well and feel at home in. The Viper III! :D

    Actually no the mouse wheel doesn't increment throttle while in FA-off. I use keys preset to 0/25/50/75/100% for throttle when using FA-off. In FA-off if you want to 'kill speed' you need to apply counter thrust in any vector that you are moving in. TBI I flick FA-on and hit 0% throttle for that....Cheating I know but it's so much easier. If they would just allow a toggle for relative mouse control I'd be the happiest CMDR out!

    Really like the DBE. Nice mix of looks and ability but the lack of internals used to stop me from flying it for long periods of time. With 2.3 however I might have to get me one again. Mine (well on my old save) And after a scrap with a wanted python

    How the Adder goes at the hands of a skilled pilot will be very different to how I'll do in it :) But i'm planning on taking it out and doing so RES work to find out :)

    it's a conspiracy I tell you! FD just want us KBAM users to wipe the floor with the HOTAS pilots all the time so they deliberately hamper us by forcing us to be one or the other!! :S:eek::x:O

    If you zero (centre) the throttle with FA-on then the assist will apply reverse thrust to slow you down. With FA-off you will continue on your heading untill you manually ally the reverse thrust to slow down. Unless it works differently on HOTAS but I use the mouse wheel to set my throttle. When in FA-off and I apply my throttle for a bit but then zero it there is no reverse thrust applied unless i go negative on the throttle.

    Still bombing around with FA-off. SC is annoying but I've bound the directional movement inputs to my number pad so I don't break my wrist trying to to do full 180 in SC! Still finding it difficult to land quickly at the rotaty stations but when you get it right man does it feel good! Combat is still very much a mess for me. I can still handle myself in a RES ok but thats more to do with target selection than anything else. My little adder handles nicely enough but I won't even last 5 mins with a decent player in my sights!

    Yes. If you didn't thrust you couldn't fly your ships. Try FA-off. Thrust comes into it's own then.

    Depends on whether you have FA-on or off. FA-On Throttle is like cruise control in your car. Set it at a constant speed and you'll stay at that speed. Thrust is like pressing the accelerator or brake to change your speed. FA-off Throttle will apply a constant thrust until you reach the speed cap. Thrust will accelerate you as long as you have the thrust button pressed. When release you'l continue to drift at that speed.

    Hmm I've never had it from what I can remember. When I get another MK IV (lets face it. It probably will happen!) I'll check and see.
