    A great thing about Ratting is that there are lots of suitable ships. Cobras and T6 work well, AspX and DBX are popular. I tend to reserve my Conda for long-range rescues. :)

    It might be worth noting that Lee Survey lacks shipyard facilities, so you can't have your ships delivered there directly. Wheelock Plant in the adjacent Wangkathaa system is a good option.

    Much appreciate all the hints and tips and the updated OP for this thread. I've just finished a 2nd 2hr session looking for geysers on one particular 600km diameter planet. No luck yet but I'll be trying the glide technique tomorrow (never occured to me to search from that high up).

    I would be amazed if there's anything space based in the Hind Nebula, considering the Asteroid Base there the system has been visited a lot this last year.

    Again, my experience differs; out of the dozen plus such missions I've done over the past 2-3 days, only once have I had such an occurrence (and you can jump out to orbital cruise and back in again, rather than re-logging). Admittedly I've only had two or three stacked at a time. Personally I'm just pleased to see that since 2.4, multiple missions to the same system will actually send you to different targets, and different planets/moons, rather than all sending you to the same place!

    This does not match my own experience. Over the past 2-3 days I have done maybe a dozen planetary surface scan missions, all for a faction currently at peace (and with which I am allied). Payouts have ranged from 200k to 3.1m, and in probably around two-thirds of cases the target has been defended with trespass zone, skimmers and defence turrets. It sounds like OP may just have had a bad patch of RNG.

    Good. If you can defend and counter all the weapons they have, then it makes the whole thing rather pointless. They should be a challenge if you want to try and fight them. I don't think we'll be getting a way of following their wakes anytime soon, or probably, anytime.

    Well it's hard as they're 218Mb each :p However this is a crop of one and if you zoom right in you'll notice how the metal fixings don't lose any quality, but the writing's already blurred. I can't see anything behind the writing though, maybe it's cause the lighting's different but I don't think so. Click the picture to get a fullscreen version.

    I doubt you'll get them to be honest, the writing is deliberately blurred. I take my screenshots at 6k resolution and you still can't read what they say. I only managed to make out water and coffee beans when I first posted that picture, didn't notice toilet roll, but I'm glad they had some at least :D

    i'm away all next week so a 'blot' may be my only option. so i might as well make it a good one! naturally i spent so long faffing about trying to get 'the perfect shot' of the Buckyball Beer Mat canister that it exploded as i was about to press f10, so you'll have to make do with this!

    Thanks for finding that...how embarrassing. I have fixed the form issues and you're good to go. I've thought about your unconventional start, am cool with it, and so have calculated your time to be 17:29. The rules state that your run starts when your vehicle is in motion. CMDR <-lightspeed-> choose to position himself well behind the start line and get up to speed in order to take advantage of the ramp and jump. I've decided this is fine and since this is the very first run submitted in the very first season, will be amending the rules to state that the run starts when you actually cross the start line.

    cookiehole replied to a thread [EVENT] Buckyball Racing Club in Dangerous Groups
    I've finally more or less finished my spreadsheet for calculating the elevation of jump targets on planetary surfaces (or the ship altitude necessary to see the target) and have also attached a short how-to. The spreadsheet is on google sheets here, you'll need to make a copy or download it to use it. Note that this is only for jump targets obscured by the planet's day-night-cycle and not by other planets, as these are much harder to measure and calculate ;)
