    You can't work out the mass from a volume in a space ship. It's not a block of a homogeneous material where you could just put a volume and density into a formula. A ship can be more or less hollow, depending on her purpose and the bulkheads and hull armour can be of a various thickness. For example Dropship and AspX are basically of a same size, but dropship simply has the armour twice as thick, so she's twice as heavy. That being said, I do agree that generally the masses of several ships are way off. This is an artificial problem Frontier "created" for (or rather against) themselves. The modules have a given performance (generally, too, but now I'm talking specifically about thrusters and FSD) and FD can't do anything with them. If they did, they would throw all the ship that use said class of module off balance. The only way they can "balance" a ship to their intentions is by adding and subtracting mass.

    If they ever come back, they're in for a nasty surprise. :D

    I like them and they work good. That's all I can tell you. :) You have to try them out to see if they work on your FdL. Distributor and jitter are a factor for some people.

    Do you know you can disable the camera shake in the SRV as well as lock your view to the horizon, instead of SRV, so your head look doesn't move when SRV thrashes around?

    Wait, are you implying that T.j... did good? Well, well, look at that. Such an unexpected change of direction!

    Awesome comparison. Thank you. I always preferred DBX over Asp. It's good to know that she actually isn't that much worse in covering distance. Though that being said, I wouldn't mind a faster scooping to be made an engineer mod.

    No - engineering modifications on NPCs are only OUTSIDE of combat zones. From an earlier post of mine: Yes NPCs can have engineered weapons, I had to eat humble pie over this as I raised a ticket and support replied: Deadly and Elite NPCs can have modified equipment outside of combat zones, and modifications on these ships are not limited to passive modules. Elite NPCs will have more modified equipment then Deadly.

    Actually Jean Giroud (French cartoonist Moebius) along with with avant-garde filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky unsuccessfully sued Besson for stealing ideas for The Third Element from their fantasy comic book series - The Incal. :rolleyes:

    MalcYorks replied to a thread Ships Clock in Horizons Discussions
    I don't wear a watch, I am retired and fart in the general direction of watch and smart-phone equipped wage-slaves. My house clocks are radio-synchronised and times on equipment update automatically, even my central heating timer switches to and from DST with no input on my part. I have one clock on my desk running at UTC for amateur radio and flight sim reference. I would much rather live by the days' actual time, with 12 noon being when the sun is at it's zenith but I can't thanks to the production of Victorian railway timetables. I am used to working in Zulu time from my military career and even in online simulated aviation; I have never found it difficult to add or subtract a number from the little hand and I feel sorry for people who can't manage it.

    Yes they do but only outside Combat Zones..... Elite and Deadly have more than master, lower than master have none.

    The Southern telescope is here: And the northern one is here: As you can see from the pics they really are "Extremely Little Telescopes" and there is only one per site.

    You can change / replace the switches without too much trouble apparently. My mate's flight sim outfit has had all the switches changed to overcome the "flick twice" issue and the pinky switch is in it's third incarnation I believe. A bit of internet searching should give you all the guidance needed to rejuvenate your brick and save you over £200. ;)

    I never died. I tried to destroy my ship, several times, but I always appear at the last station I visited. :|

    And Selene Jean's base is called Prospector's Rest, although she basically just cares about armour. :D Maybe there's a joke we're not getting, somewhere.

    Personally I think the superpower rep decay is WAY too fast, it is daft that it drops in even just one day.
