    You mean for the helm? They also have to setup their fire groups against after a multicrew session? I suppose this issue was reported in the beta and ignored as usual?

    This is exactly what I (and others) have been criticising all along. It is extremely disrespectful of our time to decide that "your already-earned credits shall be worthless for reaching the new status which we are totally introducing even though no one asked for it". The "engineer mods are optional" argument has been dead for a while now. They are only optional in the same sense that a shield is optional, or that you could totally forever fly with E-rated gear. Yes, it is possible, but unless you stick to specific niches where it doesn't matter much, you will be toast without. P.S.: @Mods: Forum ate my post the first time, claiming my "token has expired". Didn't have to login, just Ctrl-F5 the threads, then write everything again. Not sure if random hiccup or genuine forum bug. - - - Updated - - -

    Yes, as stated previously, Exploration rank should only be based on the "First Discovered" tags you earn. There's still less than one percent of the galaxy scanned and we now have several ships that can jump 50+ LY's in a single bound with some engineering.

    At least you could call it Exploration without your fingers crossed. - - - Updated - - - FD seems to share the same opinion.

    Not at all This isn't the fault of the players. I'd just like to see FD stop introducing bone-headed decisions into the game.

    Forget the Beluga, it's just not worth the credits if you don't have a Python or Orca which will give you far better value depending on what you want to do. Python - best mission runner, and all around good at just about everything. If I could only fly one ship. it would be a Python. Orca - Surprisingly fun to fly. Fast and handles nicely - best Yaw Rate available which sounds insignificant, but is amazingly fun once you remember that it's a strength on the Orca and start flying it that way. Excellent for Passenger Missions around the bubble, especially the ones that require smuggling wanted passengers back into the station. Either ship performs really well once A-rated and engineered properly.

    +1 Rep Exactly right - FD has just continues the pattern of making any rank title meaningless. A year ago, when you ran into a CMDR who EARNED Elite, you knew what they went tthrough to get there and had some respect for their achievement. Today, it's like Saturday soccer league Everybody gets a ribbon... Too soon old

    If you have been doing multicrew, always check your fire groups, they WILL have changed. Cheers Cmdr's

    Argue about it all you want, but the only rational factor contributing to your exploration rank should be based on "first discovered tags." Anything else is non-sense. I don't care what the formula is or how long it takes or how much you earn, but advancing "exploration" rank for doing anything else is just undermining the use of the word "Exploration." Perhaps, if FD wants to use the current method of advancing the rank, they should re-name it "Travel" rank. Language should actually adhere to some rational commonly accepted definitions and be applied appropriately.

    Ok... i though in 2.3 will not be able to stack more than 3 massacres. We CAN stack more massacres but no more than 3 massacres are appering in BB at one relog.... So it mean more cancerous relogging to stack more missions. We still can do 80-100 mln/hour. Solution is simple, in fact rather workaround - FDev add a delay - 30 seconds? 60? to mode switch and problem will be definately solved with minimum efforth, because no one will wait one minute to take (or not) more missions. I can also refresh passenger missions on BB through that cancerous part of gameplay.

    Please dont start on that route... Some CMDR's are having problems and while I dont I fully accept that. Whoever and what i is to blame for that should be sorted out. Sorting out is not trying to label groups of CMDR's as "white Knights" or the opposite. Most Cmdr's recognize that some people have connection problems. But so many factors are in play, that the issue probably has many answers. Your answer is hardly helpful in any matter at all. Cheers Cmdr's

    I just dropped bounty vouchers off worth 4.5 mill. credits (system specific) in system with no former visit. Result cordial with controlling faction. Did the same in an another system, but only worth 500 K credits (system specific). Result cordial with controlling faction. Having handed in more than 10500 bounties I have never noticed. Ehh.. What am I missing here.... Cheers Cmdr's

    No doubt the high gravity was the OP's "downfall." On high G landings, I carefully get in position over the pad and then just put 4 pips to engines and hit FA OFF in brief pulses to let gravity initiate decent. As soon as you release the FA OFF button (in hold mode) the engines will try to counter the decent. Brief taps of FA OFF will allow a slow controlled landing. Any use of downward thrusters is likely to kill you when the gravity is very high. HTH

    This ^^ They shouldn't even be part of the equation. Explorers go out and find new things - running the Love Boat isn't exploring. Whoever makes these decisions needs to be transferred to marketing.

    Exactly. Engineers throws a whole new level of complexity into outfitting that makes it much harder for everyone to run around flying the same thing. Engineers is now integral to the game in a way that Power Play, CQC, SLF's, and Multi-Crew will never be. Without Engineers, or with it being made irrelevant through dilution, ED would be terribly boring. It's the best thing FD has done so far to improve game play.
