    Yeah, I have been in that area since last weekend, exploring all the nebulas, and it is a bloody nightmare. There's several regions where systems are locked, in the end I gave up as too many interesting areas are locked. Even trying to return to the Witch Head nebular was tricksey. By the way, I got out here by hitching a lift off The Gnosis.

    just a heads up, there might be or not a single commander cap. you won't find such a sheet for practical reasons. 1. you'd need a small and very dedicated testing group. if you have a look at my trade test for exampel: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/357715-BGS-Trading-for-Influence?p=5608931#post5608931 ... that test took several weeks in a no traffic system with station(s) far from entry point. besides the time investment, you'd need people you trust to report every potential mistake while testing (pressing the wrong button for exampel) ... from my own testing i know mistakes happen even alone.

    I have my own method of calculating the standings and just ignore Fdev 2 points for every system 1 point for every favorable system -1 point for every unfavorable system My criteria simply is how far and how much a Power has spread his or her influence inline with their ethos. Population could easily be used in place of system count

    Something's up in Terra Mater. Looks like a player faction 'Elite Division' was added a while back (tbc) and has started growing recently. They aren't currently marked as a PF in eddb but looks like one? https://ross.eddb.io/faction?page=3765. They are a Co-op, would that block the Blood-Bores? This ones a double-whammy - Permit system & a Rare! (looks like this MF was created at same time as Engineers appeared) Dark Echo PF are now leading faction in Borasetani but not yet controlling. Influence graphs here... https://zoy.updog.co/rares/facall.html

    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. :)

    Go the whole hog and outfit that Cobra for G5 DD. One of my fav ships to fly is my fast Cobra III, come to think of it, that isn't even G5 modded and its quick enough for any NPC.

    There was a discussion about the NPC's the other day, a CMDR had a fair old ding dong with either a DBX or a DBS, I replied I had trouble taking 1 out whereas Anacondas and the like were easy enough game. I think it was only yesterday I was in a RES having a pew-pew and along came a Vulture, now usually these are good enough game (I am in 1 too), pew pew ensues and I am winning, in fact as is most of the case for the past few days, a few have not fired back until their shield is down or very nearly down. Well this is when he got a bit excited, he hit me with a PA and then another weapon, it may have been 2 PA's, I'm not sure. We carry on and he gets my shields down to 1 ring, that's when he wallops me and shields are gone, hull to 85% or there about. I get a malfunctioning PP, PD, Thrusters, Sensors and Pulse's. My thrusters come on quick enough thankfully and I get to hightail out of Dodge. I boost away for a bit and repair while he is being kept busy by some other NPC's, I then back to get him as...

    Could use it to exploit BGS and missions, can store cargo in station you are working on until right mission shows up ;) Sure there are plenty of others too!

    #1 - yes, please #2 - states and minor faction influence are only available via system map for systems you have explored previously or are huge population systems. your implementation would break with that, making it available to everyone, which i personally don't like. i would like to see all info on a faction and the systems it is in bring present in its homesystem for exampel. #3 well, for me the utc. midnight tick was a catastrophe as a bgs player, seriously cutting into me sleep-time to update tasks for those players in other time-zones. i think there is no good fix ticktime, but would suggest a 25 hours tick for the same reason.

    Maybe some of the mission you take involve killing federation ships? So you might be getting a one step forward two steps back effect on your federation repuation. Dunno just speculating. Getting many fines? Scanned by secuirity while carrying stuff you shouldnt?

    generally, if you are not in a state restricting the actions which count towards influence, you'd be best off to maximise transactions per docking ... redeem some exploration data, bring a total of 16t or 32t of profitable commodities with your combat ship, go for 1 uss everytime before docling to get a bounty to redeem, run some missions. you'll hit the caps fast that way and can feel free to do what you emjoy most, for exampel res sessions in a wing....

    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. :)

    Cutter, will pay for itself quicker adn the jump range is far better. Failing that I suggest that you go for the one that will be easiest for you to unlock first, based on your current ranks and reputation

    last time i tested that (in 2.3) i could not see any difference between a single 22K cr bounty redeem and a 300k bounty redeem. while value might have some effect, strictly speaking in terms of influence gains you are best off with cashing in after each kill. USS bountyhunting around a station + docking computer ftw. diminuishing returns are hitting quite early, though. 12 bounty redeems are only ~25% more effective than 3 in a small population system. also note, that a res session can push your factions influence indirectly by reducing other factions influence via shipkills even after you have hit the soft- or hardcap on influence gains by boubty redeems.
