    Having spent the last couple of days sacrificing time and materials on the altars of various engineers, I decided I might as well carry this through with the suggested sacrifice to the gods. Well, Thor, it being his day and all. Intent to race: Cmdr Samwell Drakhyr The Squirrel: Eagle Stop That Pigeon The Wyrm: Diamondback Explorer Black Maria Battle cry: Uggi stál ormr! * *roughly "Fear the steel serpent", though I haven't a clue about the correct form of the verb ugga

    Why not have a go at our current race Yggdrasil - link in my signature - instead? By the way, did you voice the awesome Galnet story for my Fat Tony's Festival of Racing event? If so then, I've been meaning to tank you. Consider this an IOU for a pint sometime. Hopefully I'll be at next year's Lavecon. :)

    I've not received any further submissions, or had any mistakes pointed out, so the provisional tables are now final standings. The first post has been updated. Thanks to everyone who took part and congratulations to all the winners, I had a great time running the festival, next time I'll go for something with a few less leaderboards though. Special thanks to Alec and Sushi who's random forum comments gave the moments of inspiration that changed the Ironbucky Trophy from a name I'd thought up into the vicious thing it became. Also to the Reddit Elite Miners without whom I wouldn't have found Smeaton Port orbiting that evil little moon. :D The Lonnegan Brothers will be back at Weyl Gateway in the Alacarakmo system very soon hosting The Bootlegger Challenge Rebootlegged, which incorporates an updated version of the Black Riband. Until then it's goodbye from Fat Tony!

    I love everything about this race, especially the artwork. And this bit: Can't stop laughing. :D Intent to race, I'll do it properly later when I can think of a battlecry and can get time to play and do a blot. I'll use CMDR Raiko in both events. I've got an un-named Imperial Eagle somewhere that I've never used (got added as a Kickstarter reward when the iEagle was added to the game) for The Squirrel, but what are your thoughts on entering in different ships? I'll be having a go at The Wyrm in The Nomad, but I'd quite like to have a go in an FdL or Python for Viking Raiding Party / Scourge of the North. :)

    Not sure, but you should sell it at the Canonn Institute. They'll take anything for studying :D

    Their reasons, as I'm sure you well know, is that they don't want and have never wanted stealth in the game. Certainly not in the conventional sense of stealth. Silent running has never been intended to be anything more that a short term reduction in heat signature.

    That's brilliant, although it does highlight an issue I have with the game, which is how Landing Pads and the immediate surrounding area have damage reduction built into them. If you had of hit the ground, or even any other part of the structure at that speed you would have died instantly. In fact if you had of hit the ground at half that speed you probably would have died. But I digress.

    Checkmate As for the OP, I'm still to encounter this "grind" people keep going on about. Maybe it's just because I play the game. Also I thought you said you removed the rant, but your entire post is a rant about what you think of the game and why you don't like it.

    But Cmdrs can also use visual identification, I do it when to check out NPCs because I want to know why I can't target them from a distance :) Silent Running used to be a powerful tool back in the original Beta, but by the time the game went live it's uses had dropped considerably. There was a while when it had it's advantages for entering a station while smuggling, but as has been mentioned before, the patrols have gotten much slacker and if you line yourself up with the slot from a distance and then just accelerate towards the slot, they won't complete a scan before you get inside.

    It affects everyone the same way, NPCs and Cmdrs. Knock it off with the salt comments, for a person making their first post will you.

    Accessibility guidelines for you deciding you don't want to use the best part of the game? Nope :) Well that puts a crimp on an otherwise damn fine explanation :( I hadn't considered that it would be a reaching your destination chime, but that is a very distinct possibility. I really thought it was Superpowers rather than Powerplay powers, but maybe some more investigation needs to be done...

    Ozric replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    Sorry my attendance on the forums has been sporadic of late, otherwise if I had of seen that post in Tinfoil then I would have responded. There are a few different types of music that play when you enter certain systems, I am as always prepared to be proved wrong here. Each of the superpowers has their own "chime" that plays on entering a system, I don't believe independent systems do, then there is the Exploration chime. I'd very rarely noticed it before 2.4, I think that it does play in the systems that contain Generation ships but I'm not 100% positive. I'd had a fly around some of the systems where I'd heard it before looking for listening posts and the like, but never found anything. I think it's clear that Frontier are using it to indicate there's something of interest in the system, it's just unfortunate that if it's planet based there's still very little chance of finding it.

    The other thing I forgot to mention last night: In between races, do please make sure to check out Jhyrryl's Road Rally Racing (Season 1 running until the end of December); it's a great concept that deserves more attention than it's had so far :)

    We're on the right trail now, being lead through the bases as intended but I'm slightly surprised no one has mentioned the thing that connects all the systems where the bases are located (other than the 0 population) and that's the exploration music that plays as you enter the system. Probably not much help for this search at the moment, but certainly interesting... Well to me at least :p chuckles

    A quick update on scheduling, in case you hadn't looked at the website in the last few days... Polly's Yggdrasil will be the next race, starting on Saturday (21st Oct). After that, Cmdr Mathias Shallowgrave (aka rootsrat) of the Winged Hussars will be hosting a special race to mark the Winged Hussars' second anniversary; Hermaszewski Memorial Race will run 10-19 November. This means that Hanekura Shizuka's Hope and Glory has been postponed until 2-10 December. Yup, that's right, three new hosts in a row :) Next race after that will probably be in the new year, most likely around 6-14 January. Sometime around mid to late November I will be looking for hosts for the first few races of next year, so please come up with some ideas over the next few weeks :D
