    I take a fairly strong stance against slavery. But I have sold 33 slaves so I'm not clean. Two batches. One and 32. See the Diplomatic Corps were trying to target a specific system. At the time there was a mechanic where if a faction's influence was below 2% you would expand into their "slot". And we didn't want that. We wanted to go into a system further away. With a higher population. Better economy. And this half dead anarchy faction was sitting in the way. So I took on the task of running a few missions for them so that they would gain a percent.

    I dunno, sometimes you need to poke about a bit. I like to see who the hollow squares are and check their paintwork. It can can take a little time if you have to check INARA for their license.

    Hello I've been away up mountains, very healthy and invigorating. I've just read in the news that there were two emergency airlifts from snowdon less than 48 hours after I was up the summit (the summit has a coffee shop that mountain really needs to git-gud), not surprising really I saw more struggling people in jeans and trainers than stout boots and bobble hats (a bit like flying unshielded in open). It was never supposed to be just comms, that was a temporary fudged version after lots of entitled wailing I think. Now it's working as was always intended to purge the unclean. Block is a designed function working as intended, whereas clogging and 5-1 are cheats so it's not really the same.

    You can tell it's SDC because they exploited self destruct for a quick return at the end.

    I pushed hard to get my Sol permit, and once I earned it and went for my first visit, this was my reaction: As for the OP, we must have killed off the intelligent life on Saturn that is obviously trying to communicate with us today:

    You're late to the party my friend. Ross 128 has been an Alliance system since July and it's late September now. Luhman 16 is full and won't take anymore inbound expansions. Sol is God-locked by Frontier or Hutton Truckers and Earth Defenese Fleet and that Alliance faction would already have gone in there; and the other Ross 128 factions are native so they won't retreat anywhere. Is this another "innocent trader caught up in someone else's war" thread? It seems to be a pretty regular trope with the Feds these days. Just to remind you: Ross 128 is a toxic hard labour maximum security Prison Mine. Where capital punishment was reinstated just to reduce the overcrowding. The lore around this place is nasty - and those defending it are not on the side of the good and the just.

    No it's a thing, and pretty cool actually. I run that load out myself on the trade ships, but I've never managed to hit anyone with them. Probably a mix of Thruster Disablers, Shield Disablers and extra damage. Something like this:

    You think Saturn is not quite accurate? Try googling: "Juno images". The high res stuff coming from Jupiter right now looks like the surface has taken some really good acid at a great party.

    VR is killing my game. I've got an okay sim pit and big screen and recently got a Rift. The lack of connection to the real world is a bit of a problem for staying basically social with the family. The experience is compelling, but my situational awareness was already pretty good with TrackIR. And Elite requires a lot of stuff on the second screen. Discord, comms, team forum, copying destinations into galmap, trade sites, and a film for the repetitive sessions. I've been in game a LOT less since I picked up VR, even though the experience IS amazing. But maybe that's just my life getting in the way.

    I just love this bit.. "Elite Dangerous just shrinks planets and stars to tennis ball size to fool you into believing you travel far distances in supercruise." I know that Star Citizen is only one planet and moon, but even at that... he must own one humongous-sized computer <smirk>

    Anybody who isn't playing with a head tracker is at a slight disadvantage, but the cost of a good head tracker is a fair fraction of the cost of a VR headset which also includes head tracking. I wouldn't like to say for definite if VR improves my gameplay, but I do appear to play worse when I don't use it. But that of course could be more to do with the fact that I'm used to using it now.

    Which is why my personal block policy doesn't apply, FDEV's block function does however he can use it or not use it as he see's fit. Every player can do whatever they like with the block function, it doesn't matter how upset that makes you as you have no input in it. It's not your choice. I agree with him shooting unshielded traders lacks honour, skill or challenge people who do it should be embarrassed.

    Nope my line is block all station griefers and cheats, just like I've explained to you already on numerous occasions when you've made that up before. I never said that I always maintained I block station griefers as well as cheats, it's a semantic argument though as I can confirm that they are exactly the same players. I'll be perfectly honest back Jason, I like choice as much as you like trying to silence talk of things you dislike. I like exercising choice and I like explaining to people how they can exercise choice. Now the thing you are complaining at me about today is me telling a guy to use block rather than consider changing modes. I advised him to use block as in my judgement he doesn't seem a very "fighty" CMDR, so my block policy doesn't really apply to him as I'm "fighty". So I tailored my advice in the knowledge that the git-gud pro-bros would presently be along to whinge about his outfitting.

    I like all the modes, but I prefer open more now I've eradicated station griefers and all the best known cheats. Don't wait for FDEV to do anything or change your mode choice, just get blocking. All the pro's non of the cons.

    Complete agree. Just look at the factions - almost every station has at least one "criminal" faction offering shady missions. Crime is not just supported in this game, it's encouraged! However, the punishment should fit the crime, and griefers are like them rich crooks with fancy lawyers - they know how to escape justice. C&P (aka 'karma') is supposed to fix this current loophole in the game. BTW, the Maia CG is in an anarchy system, the one place I believe griefers get a free pass.
