    I said this, posting as a player and a fan. It was tongue in cheek but good advice: New players should get out of the starter systems as soon as they can. My 2nd post echoed this one. I'm here to help and have fun, it's the only reason I come on the forums. As for criticising other players' choice of mode, the only one I can find in this thread was ... which wasn't by me. If you need help playing in open, feel free to ask for advice, it's what we're here for. If you want to play in solo that's fine too, that's what it's there for.

    Yeh I really need to try this also, I did a quick couple of tests and sucked at it completely. Maybe I need to try binding my setup a bit differently.

    I've gone back to the Witcher 3...TC's Ghost Recon Wildlands for fun with mates. IL2 BoS until I get screaming mad trying to get my Tobii 4c to work.... A bit of Alien isolation here and there when I feel like shouting at the monitor for 20 minutes and E-D in very small slices along with occasional trips to the Baby PU in SC to remind myself what buttons to press once 3.0 gets here in the next 10 years or so...

    There was an unauthorised structure around Colonia, I can't remember the exact system. Very much like a compromised nav beacon: There were no authorities but lots of wanted Elite and Deadly ships. I used a lot of ammo there in my little Courier :D

    experiences like this will teach you, that you might loose a couple of millions, but nothing can take the experience from you! a good reasoon to max out the enjoyment of playing the game instead of playing for pixel-credits :-) i know what i'm talking about ... my first trip to sag a* was in fact three trips, as i got destroyed twice each time with weeks of exploration data on board. you shrug it off after a break, and grow on it. kudos for not ranting, +rep!

    I noticed NPCs at higher rank seem to be able to Chaff almost continuously and without running out of ammo. Not sure this is legit although I didn't actually check sub targets to see if these ships are fitted with 4 chaff or something. :)

    Congrats ! I don't know of any Trading-Elites yet, but there are several Explo-Elites already there. One made it within 6 days of release, i was kind of "late" and did it at the 9th day after release :-)

    Agreed folks, while the list has some valid points, you can see the threats are pretty tongue in cheek. :) Remember, no personal attacks. Everyone play nice. :) I have a couple myself; 1. Allow waypoints in route planning 2. Show friends icons (the green icon) in the local system maps (might be difficult)

    Yup its tough out there, I have not been randomly murdered yet although I do believe people have attempted to do so with one recent Anaconda trying to get behind for inderdiction. The point of Open is to be aware of your surroundings, if you are going in a dangerous place, be careful, I always check the radar regardless of what system I am in, 90% of the time its clear and nothing to see but, its the very first thing I do when jumping anywhere. Check the ships, scan them if you desire to see what they carry (if you are concerned), never fly straight to a station if you have hollow squares around you and you do not know their intention, sure if its a bunch of T6's its fine, if they are FDLs and Anacondas check first before doing stuff. So far this has served me well. Oh and don't fly trade ships at trade CGs in Open without shields, you are painting a big X on your back. Don't speed into stations in heavy populated station instances in Open as you are liable to get rammed and in trouble, stick to...

    Great quote, I'm similar I won't start a fight but I'll make a quick decision on whether to stay or bug out. It's all about assessment 1 v 1 I'll have a look. 2-4 v 1 I'll generally be firing up the fsd as they drop into normal space. My mother didn't raise no idiots ;-)

    I'm coming back home with...who knows how much exploration data. So my question is (And keep in mind I've unlocked every engineer so I already have max rep with all engineer factions) does anyone know of good systems to max rep with using the exploration data? Can be for any reason, missions, permits, etc.

    I've found quite a few. Honestly Between this account and my old one it's almost scary how much I have explored so maybe it's a little biased in my favor due to sheer number but they aren't that rare that you'll find more.

    not in terms of efficiency (tonnage per hour as well as cr/h), as tested at several mining CGs by several commanders. pythons beat cutters, condas and t9s - and clippers. people usually overestimate the importance of cargo space and travel time to station, and underestimate the time spend turning between the asteroids, waiting for distributor recharge or the collectors keeping up. mining corvettes are definetly better than a python in my experience, though (large powerdistributor, enough internals to match active collectors and number of sustained mining lasers, good cargo capacity, and turns well between the asteroids).

    - why would you put a powerplant into a build which exceeds the power used? the heatefficiency fully depends on quality (A-E), not on size. - the "undersized" fueltank of that build allows exactly the same jumps as a condas standard fueltanks (4 jumps). do you put extra fueltanks on your conda when exploring? (i don't)

    I'm not seeing this reported negativity toward E-D at all aside from the odd favourable comparison on spectrum or interested questions in game from quite a few who've never played it. I don't do Reddit so perhaps I'm missing all of it. There will be those who make tit for tat comments of course, but what I've found is the only negativity I'm hearing is from former E-D players who can't seem to reconcile themselves to being able to play both games and enjoy them both for what they are....assuming the other one ever gets released :)

About iconoclypse
I'm old but that just means I've had many years to experience many games. I've got a couple of thousand games across more than two dozen systems. Feel free to ask me anything about games.

I believe in being principled. If you need me, I'll help. If you harm others, beware. I always challenge injustice.

My nickname/GT is a portmanteau of 'iconoclasm' ("the action of attacking or assertively rejecting cherished beliefs and institutions or established values and practices." and 'apocalypse' ("is a disclosure of knowledge", "a revelation"). I will reveal the truth by testing accepted belief to destruction. What survives is worthy and solid. Never ask me to take something for granted.
