    You said "Found mission to get 6 pieces of Bromellite, found Ice ring 2 solar systems away, gone there and started mining. When I refined 1 piece of Bromellite, a pirate appeared, started attacking me and destroyed me" I have highlighted the bit that caused your pirate problem, ordinary mining where you just go to mine a cargo of stuff to sell will only get you attacked when you appear in a ring whilst carrying cargo other than limpets, this is why if mining you get dropped out of the game that you should leave the ring and sell the cargo as soon as you log back in, missions can come with their own pirates who can appear at any time to stop you completing the mission, worse pirates/NPCs that are part of a mission have a combat capability based on the ranking of the mission unlike the non-mission based random NPCs you meet that will be based around your rank.

    I have been getting "salvage missions" almost from the beginning. The "Unique Escape POD" completely new. I expected it to be someplace in space. It came down like this: INCOMING MISSION CRITICAL MESSAGE Meet Commander Reynolds in system XXXXXXX for coordinates. Got to system XXXXXXX and Reynolds updated the info in the Nav Transactions panel and system Map. That was when I first found out it was planetary. Don't know if it is a bug or not.. Unfortunately I did NOT get video of the whole thing.

    This was one of those "INCOMING MISSION CRITICAL" messages. There was NOTHING in the description about needing an SRV.. The salvage missions in the MISSION board still show "REQUIREMENTS NOT MET".

    Ok, Had I known it was something I had to get from a planetary surface, I would never have taken it since I don't have an SRV. But, Since I was given it even though I don't have one, it would seem that there should be some way to collect them without an SRV. HOW..??? I found them, deployed the scoop, lined up on them and spent some time scraping around on the planet's surface but never managed to collect anything. Ended up dead when some punk attacked me.

    Find systems using the maps that have lots of ringed planets and stations, these are likely to have lots of Resource Extraction Sites (RESs) where you can find lots of ships that when scanned display as wanted these are legitimate targets. In a RES if you have no cargo on board the NPCs will not attack you unless you attack them first, they will scan you to see what you have on board but will than say something to expresss their disgust and leave this gives you the chance to select your fights. Random NPCs will tend to be based around your combat rank or that +1 if you are much higher ranked as a trader or explorer unless you get involved in missions in which case any NPCs that are part of the mission's scenario will be based around the suggested rank for the mission which could lead you to facing an Elite NPC commander in a top ship so exercise care in choosing missions if you go down that route. Keep an eye on the Community Goals section of the mission boards as Bounty Hunting CGs will not only give...

    As you care about the targets and unlocking the distribution of this equipment then a possible way to help would be to use your cutter to haul the required goods in to the system then make friends with some commanders present at the station with small and medium ships, about 10km from the station drop the goods off for them to collect and deliver, see Tea Bagging (do NOT google) for more information.

    Above 1.5g the effects start being obvious especially when your ship is not level, from there up the tendency of your ship to start falling whenever it isn't level becomes very noticeable. Somewhere between 2 and 3g it is advisable to fit a docking computer for landing at planetary settlements and when not using it learn to land with as little use of downward thrust as possible. When you start getting over 4g you really want to be considering how easy your ship is to manoeuvre and how god the thrusters are that you fitted, an Anaconda or T9 might work ok in space with 4D thrusters but will be trouble on a 4g world as banking slightly in a turn will start you falling and your docking computer only works near the base. I know there is a 9g landable world somewhere in the empire but the most I have landed in is 4.1g at the world near Maia. The gravity reading shown on your hud when you approach the planet will increase the lower you get so keep an eye on it as it is much easier to abort the landing safely...

    Sadly true, but I have been able to shoot at a wider variety of ships than normal, which is something. I have tried hunting USSs as suggested further upthread but only found some threat zeroes and one threat 3 for a total of no targets however traipsing round the system has gotten me a lot of interdictions by the navy.

    I humbly suggest you, and any other PS4 users with this "problem" start hauling like crazy and thereby help save the CG and make loads of money.

    So make friends with someone with a small/medium ship and use the Anaconda to move high volume cargo to the station drop the cargo at a suitable place for your friend to take to the station which boosts the CG and your friends standings then buy something suitable that can land on the outpost, a small ship would avoid the queues for pad 3, and now you can land cargo your friend transports boosting your standing/profits. This is known here as TeaBagging links for more and better info will abound elsewhere in this and the rares CGs threads.

    There is nothing better in-game that I am aware of, the information is in the journal file on the PC but I can only point you at your bookmarks thread for related suggestions for your console to get access to it.

    Might be due to high gravity as that can really cause problems if you have either too much downward velocity or aren't in level flight.
