    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...

    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.

    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

    I think the main idea behind the bases is to back fill the lore, and maybe even give us a true idea of what is canon in Elite Dangerous. I was, probably foolishly, thinking one of the bases may give us a solid link to the Sirius corporation :D We shall see... The thread was moved to the Aliens forum a few days ago. I stickied it and renamed it (to make it a bit clearer) today, once it became clear there is a trail emerging.

    Sorry for the slight delay - RL intervened at lunchtime, plus with all these leaderboards the cookiebots have gotten TOTALLY out of control! Fat Tony's Festival of Racing - Provisional Final Standings THE IRONBUCKY TROPHY CMDR Aken B. made a late effort to wrest the Ironbucky Trophy from Cookiehole's hands, but despite a valient effort which improved his times both in both ship and SRV it wasn't quite enough and the open-unlimited Ironbucky Trophy goes to CMDR Cookiehole with his time of 1h14m17s. Meanwhile in the empty Cobra Classic Ironbucky Trophy, CMDR Bruski took "slow and steady" to new heights as he spread his Ironbucky attempt over three days, finishing with a time of 73h43m15s to take the Trophy.

    Okay, Fat Tony's Festival of Racing has now come to a close. Hope you all enjoyed the racing. :D The Lonnegan Brothers are just double checking all the submitted runs, provisional final tables will be posted around midday galactic time. The submission forms will remain open for another 24 hours for anyone who began a run before midnight and any adjustments to the final standings will be made once all entries have been received. Sorry it didn't work out, I was looking forward to see how your Ironbucky time compared.
