    It's lunacy like this that is the reason I say Cookiehole is the best pure pilot in the BRC, and this is coming from someone who would put himself in the top 5 in that category. He's just on another level.

    I'm aiming to do a run tonight. I don't have many engineered ships and so I decided to plump for the Elite Eagle (though having looked at the leaderboard I noticed Terrorsidic has already done a run in that :( I just need to go to Felicity to pick up a set of enhanced thrusters and then haul myself back to the start line. Hahahahahahaha. Hahahahahaha. That my friend, is genius!

    goemon replied to a thread Lakon Type-9 Heavy Mining Type 9 in Ships of Elite
    with 3 medium mining lasers you get ~28 seconds out of a class 6A WEP engineered PD, and 10 seconds downtime (recharging). you can drill any asteroids with just recharging once. with a charged enhanced PD you get ~24 seconds firing the mining lasers, and 8 seconds downtime. large content asteroids might need 2 times recharging the PD - the second time just a bit. that's at least my experience plus looking to the coriolis numbers assuming a best roll. and for me the reason to ue my g5 charge enhanced materials on ships which really win from it :) i'm not sure whether i'd go for the three mining lasers on a t9, though. maybe you are better off with stripping the asteroid in one go once you have positioned the t9 (which is probably the most challenging part)... i don't see you turning and firing prospectors fast...

    Probably because we've had this discussion so many times over the years that it doesn't matter what Frontier say, some people will continue to make whinging threads regardless, hoping to pick up anyone not fortunate enough to remember the last ones to add their voice to a completely pointless cause!

    I don't agree with Verminstar's points as I think that's as much a generalisation as they are asserting PC players put onto console players. The players themselves are individuals and as such there's always going to be some who make the rest look bad. I too have been consoles and PCs since the inception of both really (BBC and Atari 2600), but I guess it starts really around the PSX / pentium era. My view of it is that you have always been able to do more things manually on a PC. There's always been ways of tweaking things, or editing code, getting more information once the internet started expanding. So consoles have always had to do everything there and then out of the box, especially as patching console games is a relatively new thing. This is, I believe, where the perception comes from. The only thing I dislike about consoles is how it is easier and cheaper for developers to make games on consoles and the returns are much higher, so PC tends to end up with more ports these days rather than the...

    ^^^ this Essentially the VR/3D setting you see in EDProfiler determines whether you're going to start a VR Elite or a 2D Elite. Note 1: You may have to tick the "enable unknown sources" thing in the Oculus settings to allow VR Elite to start the Oculus software (which will also launch Oculus Home). Note 2: In fact, when you select your 2D profile in EDProfiler and launch Elite it will still start up Oculus Home even tho it doesn't really need to (I think the way this works is that the Oculus software sees that a bit of software that's "capable" of supporting VR has been launched (irrespective of the VR/3D graphics settings) and starts itself up just in case). If you want to prevent this then you can stop the Windows service that's called "OVRService". I actually have two desktop shortcuts, one called "Stop Oculus" (which is a shortcut to 'net stop OVRService') and one called "Start Oculus" (which is a shortcut to 'net start OVRService'). I've change OVRService in Windows services to be "manual"...

    goemon replied to a thread Lakon Type-9 Heavy Mining Type 9 in Ships of Elite
    from my mining clipper i would say, you can run 3 medium mining lasers, but not sustained... still you can use the spare time to fire prospectors or micro manage the refinery. you are good with 10 collectors in that case. t9 has the best bridge in the game, which is a valid reason to run it as a miner. the industrial design adds to the flavour. other ships are better miners, but if you don't like them ... i run a mining corvette. wonderfull! but definetly nothing i'd rank for on my second or third account.

    OK I'll have one last go then. So because I've been playing online games since TFC was released and have good enough hardware to manage to play FPS games with a ping of ~30ms and haven't experienced many issues with Elite, you're still maintaining that I don't know how online games work? Yes it is. And just because someone told you it was always a single player game, they're obviously correct... No they're not.

    as there are quite some players active on both pc and one or even two of the two consoles, i don't think your assessment makes sense (so neither fair nor unfair ... logically ex falso sequitur quodlibet (EFQ))

    Not really fussed by space legs to be honest, it can take as long as it needs to. Exploration mechanics are far, far more important!

    Yeah you're right. I mean racing around a station in an instance with 20+ Cmdrs and lots of NPCs is a walk in the park compared to 1 person pulling 1 other person out of SC and shooting them. Blinkered doesn't even begin to cover it. Sorry X<5% is standard by whose reckoning? Yours I imagine. FDev are ignoring the issues are they? So they've done nothing to improve and bolster the netcode? Are you sure it's not just the fact that you're ignoring the work they're doing and making similar threads/posts over the years for whatever reason that can't be described with words?

    Currently the exploration mechanic we have is analogous to half a bite morsel of moldy bread that is mostly burned crust & fuzzy spores. What you are suggesting sounds like, if Frontier offered us a life time supply of Filet Mignon (or the vegetarian equivalent) and a date with a super model/star of our choosing, that you would reject that offer if it meant giving up even the merest crumb of your beloved moldy morsel. Am I reading you correctly?

    Why exactly is combat always deemed to be the be all and end all? Is it not possible in your eyes to have other types of encounters or interactions that would demand a lot of a connection. I don't have low expectations, if I had a ping of over 250ms then I would notice the difference and I would think that something is up, but I don't I'm afraid. I tend to average 60fps, though it does drop to around 50 in certain circumstances (mainly flying around heavily populated asteroid belts and when first entering Glide (not that you can do anything at that point)), but I was always under the impression and prepared to be proved wrong as always, that FPS is more related to hardware. You say (not to say higher) but you mean higher and comparing to water torture... Whether or not you intend to come across as condescending that is, I'm afraid, exactly what you are doing.

    you will either have to equalise after the conflicts cooldown, or - as there is only one starport to catch - push to ~65% for a system control conflict (be wry of the controlling faction not getting into a conflict elsewhere or with somebody else)
