    heads up: the first mega ship changed its controlling faction by an election. looks as if the BGS treats megaships like other assets. and faction of the mega ship fisher rest expanded from their 100% influence system aldebaran, following the usual rules. might be interesting to test whether the same can be done the other way round.

    a war will block lockdown, minimum duration 4 ticks/days after it went active (not sure when that was) you can always transfer moduls and ships to another station, even when the station where the module or ship are is in lockdown.

    I'm really surprised more people haven't caught on to this. A highly engineered hard to hit mosquito just buzzing around the battlefield being as annoying as humanly possible. A variation would be doing the same thing, but pulling gankers out of SC and doing the hit and run thing; that gets old so fast for those guys. The ultimate passive agressive anti-gank gameplay.

    Just a suggestion here. If you are going to big up SC here (and you are absoloutely within your rights to!), then if you say something like "SC is damn good fun", then a screenshot isn't going to cut it. Either post of vid of what you did, or at least explain what you did that was so much fun. Sure, you'll need to be prepared for negative feedback... but at least you would have something better to stand on than just a screenshot. We've all seen screenshots and videos... we don't see much in the way of gameplay. That's.... erm... inch wide, inch deep at the moment, at least from my perspective. But hey, whatever you find fun right? I love exploring in ED, and there are those who can't see the attraction. I have lots of fun exploring, they say "jump, honk, jump, honk". To each their own... but at least give a little detail. Otherwise you just sound like a marketing drone. What did you do to get so much fun?

    I feel sorry for FD. When i joined in 1.4, if i remember correctly, Interdictions were quite good, not too hard, not too easy. I think maybe too common? I don't remember. Then 1.5/2.0 made them nearly impossible to the point most of us just submit, and this became habit, all the way up to the end of 2.2. Now in 2.3 they're so easy it's pointless. Lol Back to the OP, i feel your pain (or lack there of). I've long been having trouble funding any challenge in combat that's not either: A) Nerfing myself. B) PvP

    I did, although I'd very surprised if FDev introduced another rank locked thing prior to overhauling the military rank system which they've been promising for a while.

    I'm of a like mind. Just the amazing, untapped potential each ship has to be flown in a variety of different situations with a variety of different load-outs is enough to keep me enthralled and constantly refining my piloting skills. As I've said before switching to FA Off/fixed weapons/new control type is enough to provide me with hundreds of hours of fun, creative new ways to approach and play this game, as a for instance. I'm many many hours in and feel like I've just scratched the surface. Not to say I don't want to see new content delivered to keep fleshing the game out, but I find a statement such as Sunleader's as an admission of a stunning lack of creativity and ability to learn

    That is flipping awesome, love the red. Where is that? Must visit if close by. Been busy work this weekend, got a few to add later. Found a nice steamy gas vent, very active and hottest planet I've ever been on, around 1600k, pure metal world. Will add location later, stuck on phone at work. BTW superglide method working superb with practice.

    For those who are pining for newtonian physics in space, erm... how exactly would you think that would work in ED? Its a multiplayer game. You can't speed up and slow down time. They they allowed a single person stardreamer kind of effect, well, that would also not be proper newtonian physics, it would be kind of cheating to make it work, as time is a factor in any sort of calculation like that. Add onto that, a vast majority would need autopilots to get around. I'm not sure how many people are remembering Frontier through rose tinted glasses, but if you tried flying between planets manually it was damn hit and miss, and one mistake could cost you massive amounts of time. Now, imagine that unleashed on the general population.... ugh.

    Speaking only for my personal experience, my switch was motivated by the desire to learn full FA Off 100% flying, PvP combat with the top guns in the industry and all fixed weapon mounts. I just couldn't get all that to work efficiently with a HOTAS. I used the HOTAS for a long time, and flying more conventionally with gimballed mounts it was a vastly more pleasurable way to fly all around, but as soon as I dove into the deeper end of the pool I started having trouble. Just not enough control options for intense combat for me, especially when factoring in the FA Off, and the stick was considerably less accurate than the mouse for aiming the fixed weapons. Factor in that I was taking instruction from the top tier PvPers who were mostly using keyboard and mouse and you can see where I started trying to learn their methods. Dear god was it a painful, frustrating experience though that took hours to bash my way through. Speaking technically, one thing I really like about the Orbweaver is that is has the...

    First, OP You're either wrong or your game is bugged. Using planets as brakes works just fine. You just need to understand that not all planets are massive enough to brake all speeds. Controlling your orbital radius, speed, and dynamic throttle setting for maximum time-efficiency is a bit of an art form in Elite. 2nd, the rest of the post in this thread are wrong about physics. RL Gravity assists are used to increase/decrease velocity with respect to a 3rd body and the direction of the orbit. The game uses different physics for interplanetary travel whereby SC (alcubierre-type) bubbles are disrupted by the space-time curvature of gravity wells. This sci-fi game mechanic makes logical sense since we're talking about a highly localized curvature being disrupted by a larger scale radial-distance based curvature.

    No! I am. 2 months just to get the bindings right. 1 month to figure out the thruster hat. Still haven't quite mastered the hell that is FA off. Wasted billions, still no condy or cutter nor vette.

    Not meaning to discombobulate the thread there but... Of course that is exploriatin'! So is travelling and scanning within the bubble if you've never been to those locations. If hairsplitting, perhaps the only real exploring is when you are the first discoverer of a system.
