    I've had this happen fairly recently when purchasing 11 GromBombs. Every second missile I tried to purchase, it threw me to the main menu with a transaction server error. I do not know if I have video. I can try and find out if required.

    Jasmine Massii replied to a thread [ED64 - 2.3.11] BGS Tick Delayed in PC & Mac Bug Reports
    The issue with locking down Contact, Commodities and Cartographics for the time between Lock and Tick is, you're going to have a reasonable contingent of players who are then going to moan they can't play the game because the station services are "broken". Not everyone works the BGS, and locking portions off specifically for the BGS players is going to frustrate those who don't BGS. Would agree with the "Unknown" status, though the issue there is, what missions would an "Unknown" status generate? Would an "Unknown" faction status offer influence, or would the missions offered not affect influence at all?

    Doubtful. My observation of 2.3, is that it was a very (very) deep code upgrade. Don't think we'll ever see it's like again actually (probably a good thing for the devs who have to debug it as well as everyone else). Season 2 was always going to be a toughie, still very much in core mechanics territory but .. even though I'm as impatient as anyone to see them fleshed out more .. floating point module numbers (engineers), nested vehicles (guardians) and p2p character basics (commanders) only spell great things for the future from where I sit.

    Yours, in exchange for a Cutter .. RSV Avogadro is Winterwalker Enterprises Scientific Research Sidewinder. Still carrying her original loaned fuel tanks, Avogadro has been used to characterise silent running heat character for her ship class, calculate power plant (hydrogen fusion) efficiencies for fuel consumption per mega-joule and has been taken to Spica and back, with no worries. Currently residing in a stripped down condition at our remote research base, Avogadro could be transferred to your location in a matter of minutes if you can afford her. Which you probably can't seeing as she's priceless. /Message Ends.

    It's probably worth having 'a couple' of rebuys in the bank, just in case. (I'm not happy unless I have at least three). Biggest problem is being in a hurry to get into that new ship, overdoing it in the outfitting store or struggling to fit your new ship into a money making career niche (eg. thinking you can kill everything in sight and then finding, you can't). Flying without insurance can get very expensive, really quickly so 1) good question and 2) good luck! o7

    Likewise. I don't live anywhere near London (am a neighbour of Kerrash) but I'd be up for volunteering too, if helpful.

    I don't think I'll ever go there, I know the drill. However, new players do not know it's a 90 min senseless trip and if they pick up a delivery mission or worse, a VIP that wants to see the tourist beacon (that's the cherry on top of the cake tbh), they will have to live through an hour and a half of dull, gameplay-less afk "gameplay". And it will inevitably lead many away from the game.

    Forget that jezebel .. take a trip on IZABEL (Saud Kriger Dolphin) Named for 50% of the survivors (of the 2010 off-planet comedy sequel, Predators), Izabel provides luxurious rapid transport for crime bosses in a hurry! With classified top speed in excess of all but the fastest Eagle's and defense stealth capabilities on board, Izabel is optimised throughout to get you where you're going, both on time and without getting 'whacked' en route. So if you're in a hurry, don't mind loud rock and roll in the cabins and enjoy a need for speed, bribe the agent at a space station near you, tooooday! Saaay OP .. whatta you some kinda wise guy!? :D

    Maybe. The BGS is at least 'a reason' though .. (I like to support the NASTIEST sounding corps and religious sects, all else must die and I'll find them, wherever they might be hiding! lol). Yep, unfamiliar 'to me' .. of course that is, yes. I wonder if it's an obsession with 'discovered by' tagging that leads (in some sense) to seeing long range as the only exploring in the game. Going back to mining for example .. I do that beyond the bubble edge and it needs exploring (possibly more accurately described as 'surveying') to # find that metallic ring system # make sure it's pretty # make sure it's in reasonable range of some good markets .. and so on. It's relatively short range, you don't need a souped up FSD, it's survey .. but still exploring (for me it is, anyway). Still .. all occupations should have a drawback imho. (If you're a pirate you'll be wanted, so on and etc). If your game of choice is 'discovered by' tags (and bearing in mind you'll be tagged in the game for ever and a day) then...

    Threat 4 USS? And distress calls ... they're good (imho)! And often times really quite hairy. Not to mention black box recovery and faction mission murdery ofc. I actually think tourist missions make quite compelling exploration gameplay. Most explorers might not see them as such, because OK you're not a million miles from nowhere but the beacons are a cool read, the demands suitably annoying, wanted passengers 'interesting' .. plenty of new systems to explore IN DETAIL and with a time limit imposed on you (an exploration twist). ps. I LOVE my Dolphin. Sure the expanse of the rest of galaxy is empty but isn't that rather the point? I'm not saying either, that I wouldn't like sweeter sensor arrays and such, too .. but 'no love for exploring' is a bit of a red herring, given the content of passenger missions, imo.

    Or Explorers, apparently. FACT :rolleyes: All barking up the wrong tree anyway .. MINING .. is the mutt's nuts, and all other occupations are for big pink girls' skipping rope handles. Mwuhaha. :D

    Check Points exist when there's a Civil War (Combat Areas) in the system, so probably not directly linked to your mission. (I'm not sure what Check Points are for actually .. but would 'a deserter' would be found in such places anyway? Surely down the pub! :D) Was there any time associated with mission? (He will be there at 14:00 - 15:00 .. time out maybe??) Not to be defeatist but it's also not impossible you did everything right but an intermittent bug stopped your guy from appearing. Sometimes it's better to call it a bad job (someone else got him) and start again, certainly if it's getting frustrating. It sounds to me like you were doing fine, following breadcrumbs .. but the trail went cold. Not much help I know.

    I believe the asteroids replenish when you return (new instance) though of course there are MILLIONS of asteroids in a ring, good luck finding the same one twice. The technique is better if you're visiting asteroid fields. Fields and RES inside rings are reputed to give better yields (though of course, in the latter you might get more pirates). The best yields - in all cases - come from Metallic asteroids and rings (and there seems to be a pattern that these are more likely to be found in systems with K class stars). Carrying prospector limpets, fired at asteroid, also improves yields. Your arrival, when mining, seems to spawn pirates. Myself I mine metallic rings outside RES (and in my case just outside the edge of the populated bubble). When you arrive you might see a miner ship and a pirate (wing) who will check you out. You need a KWS if you're in uncharted space like me and want a bounty, or if you wait, they will eventually leave, if you've nothing in your hold. You'll then be left in peace to...
