    I don't think there will be a Norse translation of, "I said Cookiebots, not Boogiebots!"

    I was going to post a link to EDTS, which I've never used but I know that a lot (lol) of other BRC cmdrs use, but Cookiehole beat me - nothing new there! ;) If you're playing with the Raikogram in excel anyway though, you can use the solver plugin to solve travelling salesman problems, which is what I normally do. I tend to chuck everything Buckyball related into excel anyway. Just Google for "excel solver travelling salesman". The solver plugin is a part of excel, it's not a third party plugin, you just need to activate it. As most of our races only have four or five stops, and since number of jumps is a smaller number than lightyears, I usually have a go manually first and then check with excel.

    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.

    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!

    run submitted. when entering start & finish times there is no 'seconds' option, felt a bit strange. possibly more important, there is no field for video submission. it's here :

    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. :)

    many thanks to Raiko for hosting such an enormous event. only sorry i haven't had chance to compete more. thoroughly enjoyed the thread as always, congrats to the winners and special mention to Bruski for the epic IronBucky. I think cookie needs to buy Alec a new rubber stamp!

    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.
