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

    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: it is the most wonderfull corner of the forums, but don't tell anyone!

    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...

    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.

    Make sure you have no backup copies of your ".binds" file in the same directory - E D doesn't use the file name but looks at the name listed in line 2 of the file. Having backups confuses the game and leads to changes not being seen on re-loading the game. This may not be your issue but it is a known "feature" (i.e. problem) of the game. ;)

    Quite right and the reason I didn't actually include it. It was, however, extremely popular and I think brought a lot of very relevant issues into "general discussion". So I considered whether is was influential enough to include. I remember people frequently talking about it the next day. The "giant rat" episode was a bit "naff" as has been said but I remember at the time that there was indeed great concern over seemingly larger rats being encountered, a theme that resurfaces every so often, as at present.

    +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....

    goemon replied to a thread FDL from Deadly to Elite in Xbox One
    yes, i have one corrosive ... probably the courier hardpoints are misplaced for frags, as those are on the nacelles and one below the belly... i have to test it on a FDL. or similar.

    goemon replied to a thread FDL from Deadly to Elite in Xbox One
    totally not my experience with 3 frags on a courier, but maybe the hardpoint placement of a FDL is so much better? the two central medium hardpoints are probably better placed... i have more problems to kill an eagle with my frag courier, than to kill an AspE.

    People should open their history books before giving knee-jerk reactions. I was not very long ago that Catholics burned "heretics" Protestants burnt Catholics Everybody burned Jews Christians killed everyone "Kill them all: let god sort them out" ("Caedite eos. Novit enim Dominus qui sunt eius.")

    goemon replied to a thread FDL from Deadly to Elite in Xbox One
    frags are great, but not against eagles, sideys and adders because there cone is more spread out than the hitboxes of those ships are. for rank increase cnb farming i wouldn't recommend frags, while i love my all frag courier in haz res and combatzones. that's actually an inetersting turnaround. probably would even work with a longrange beam.

    well, bug is alwas possible. legality will only show in the jurisdiction, and looking at the influence of that brotherhood they will only extend their jurisdiction around their outpost ... possibility of an easteregg, like volkhab bee drones have been illegal at jaques... it would be amazing if hutton mugs would be illegal with (some) pirate factions ... is it consistent? or did you sell already?
