    Depends on what kind of ship is interdicting you and what kind of weapons with which effects they are running. Seeker missiles run at 625 m/s, a god rolled Clipper is just short of 650 m/s, a Taipan may boost to 560 m/s, my Sidey now boosts to 670 m/s (but can't yet punch well enough to dent your shields - and, at that speed, has enough problems of his own :cool:), a speed optimized Courier is around 750 m/s (but will be very fragile - not that this will be of any consolation if you can't bring down its shields).

    Hmmm... how about linking your subconscious to Google Translate?

    That's one reason to run shieldless. If you run the numbers on the clipper - the shield costs you a size 6 slot for ~200 MJ (assuming a 6C Biweave). Switching instead to no shields and Military bulkheads will get you almost 500 points in hull strength. B-rate all modules and, if you're into engineering, slap some reinforcements on them, and you can sip your tea while your FSD is charging and watch the pirates smash their heads against your ship. Although in this case I'd recommend fitting some point defense to the utility mounts closest to your cargo hatch. Another reason can be that, through hull tanking, you can effectively free up the Sys slot in your power distributor, permitting you to constantly run 4 pips to engines. Downside is, of course, that it's harder to heal between engagements - you'll need to run repair limpets and/or an AFMU.

    Whatever gives you guys the idea that it has to take 10 hours to go to Colonia? Going to Sgr A*, which isn't that much closer, can be accomplished in a mere 2 hours 58 seconds, using an Anaconda.

    No ELW, although I'd have targeted 4 & 5 to check for TWW. The scanner target display already shows you what you're dealing with.

    Check again ;) The faction status meter sometimes needs a little time to catch up. But the easiest (for me) way to get a good faction rep if I'm in a hurry is to look up one of these "road to riches" lists (I like this one) and dump a few million Cr. of exploration data in their laps.

    Ok, I don't know whether my attempt of dog-Norse makes any sense or is even readable - I just strung some words together, using the dictionary at . Later on, it occurred to me to ask my colleague, who is a big Iceland fan, whether he could provide an Icelandic translation of my original phrase. Ok, he couldn't - but he knew where to look it up. Seems like my dog Norse is sufficiently close at least for my eyes to the modern Icelandic translation, easily available via Google Translate: My Norse: vr munu sker yarr! Modern Icelandic phrase: vi munum skemmta r!

    That part about "while watching TV might backfire - at least it usually does with me, since I play in VR and need precious seconds to pop back under the VR glasses... Anywho, if that's what you want to do <shrug>. Find a reasonably large Empire system in Boom and work it to improve your local standing with at least the leading, possibly all Empire aligned factions. These are the two main factors, though: the system should be in Boom and you need a good reputation with the local faction(s) - friendly is ok, allied is better. The trick here is, though, that system states change, so having multiple systems you can switch between when one of your home systems drops out of a favourable state can be advantageous. As for which systems you want to use - up to you, although systems on the edge of the bubble or beyond may have better concentrated stackable missions, due to a lack of potential mission target ports. One system that worked for me was Wu Guinagi (although that involved a lot of surface scan...

    Ashnak replied to a thread Advice re: Spoilers in Newcomers Forum
    Come over to the Exploration subforum, then. People there like to hear about new amazing discoveries. Of course, the downside of that could be that some old salt barges in and says "1000 ly out? Ha, had you gone in the right direction, you could have found the same after only 100 ly!" :) For spoilers, though, a few hints: 1) If you want to keep the details of an amazing find secret until you've handed in the cartographic data and secured your name on the system and that sweet "first dicovered" bonus, nobody will hate you for that. 2) If you want to give people the possibility not to read about any surprises, go to the "Advanced" forum editor and encapsulate that part in SPOILER tags. 3) Same goes in general for pictures and/or video clips. Not everyone can afford the bandwidth to download all the pictures right now, some people use the forums as replacement drug via their phone (or workplace PC :x) while they can't access the game proper.

    Thought about something like that, too - but then again, I might just as well mine the 3Ps, sell them and buy the gold and a new ship from the results. Or simply participate in a CG (ok, perhaps not this week :p) and buy the Gold from there. Mining for Gold is rarely a good use of time (unless, of course, you mine for the relaxation value - like fishing, I suppose).

    Even this thread is proof of just how 'different' this community is, it hasn't gotten too toxic or completely derailed and it's already on it's fourth page! Truth be told OP, the haters are going to hate, the fanboys and white-knights are going to defend and as others here have said, it's best to just take either side's commentary with a grain of salt.

    Not really. Just was docked at Kamitra, to load up on Beer and Cigars. Place is in boom, so I could have gotten more cigars than I could handle.... anywho, decided to check the mission board, just in case. Ended up with >15 small missions (data and small cargo missions) to the next system over. Not much money, sure, but loads of rep for the Empire.

    Huh? Assuming you have: - mining lasers - prospector limpet controller - collector limpet controllers - enough cargo space (a T-7 works reasonably well) 1) stock up on limpets. fill your hold, leave maybe 20 tons or so free 2) find a pristine metallic ring
