    Fair enough, but it gets kind of old pretty quick, at least for me, like when I go on a 30K LY round trip for a couple months, taking my time, and after the first few days out, my paint is already down to 0%.

    I use shields and have them active essentially all the time. Not worth bothering to disable them to save a fraction of a fraction of fuel scooping time, I think. But anyway, I don't think it makes a difference.

    Didn't bother watching the video, but whatever floats your boat, I guess. Did inspire me to make a meme though, not about anything or anyone in particular, mind you. I just think Darth's pose here is pretty flamboyant... :D

    I've brought this up before and have an old thread somewhere in the suggestions section of something talking about it. Basically, the paint jobs degrade way too fast for my liking, being primarily an explorer in the game as I am. Let me see if I can hunt it down...

    Yeah, one of those "cheating" NPCs actually managed to get the hull of my ship down to 51% once back in the Engineers beta, or whenever it was. Hmm, maybe it was after it went live before the "nerf." Anyway, +1 virtual rep.

    It can be a pretty decent game out here in the black. Wouldn't mind if Frontier continued enhancing the best parts of this game for those of us that actually care for it. As I said before though, to each their own.

    Good thing this game isn't Eve. Besides, there's really no rhyme or reason to "stay and fight." At best you're not accomplishing much of anything and you're not able to "vanquish evil doers" or whatever, not unless someone is going into it without a rebuy or something. The long and the short of it is that it's for its own sake, not really anything else substantial, i.e., it's mostly worthless and meaningless in the game to me and many others, just a game universe continuity nuisance or a bit of a thrill now and then, depending how you look at it.

    Liz has always been a bit on the killy side bless her. Had a chat with her over tea. Said she didnt mind me helping out on the sciencey side of stuffs with the other Prof. So if you are in Maia can you do a few missions for teh Ryder revolutionary party. As the chaps from Utopia say

    You're assuming "hypocrisy" isn't a valid method of playing this game... It's, perhaps rather unfortunately, largely irrelevant to the meta game. I for one would like Frontier to address and correct these sort of inconsistencies, but it doesn't seem to be high on their priorities list.

    Come on now, the scanners don't weigh that much on the big ol' betty ships, do they? ;) <generally prefers to go exploring in a fully combat loaded Vulture, which unfortunately can't quite make it out to Beagle Point, unless jump-cheats-sauce> ... I suspect many of these sort of records are soon to be broken anyway with 20K LY plotting and selecting for neutron star preference.

    Reminds me that I have a ship to run interference for interference, but it requires more Engineering to be competent at it. Haven't gotten around to it yet, and not sure if I will, since I'm not much for the PVP meta game anyway. ... Anyway, more on point, playing their game their way isn't my main goal in how I play this game we share. As someone else mentioned, it just becomes a respawn death match at that point. I don't play this game as an e-sports game, I play it as a Commander in the Pilots Federation in 330X. Well, insofar as I'm reasonably able to.

    Thanks for starting this up again and maintaining it, GunnerBill. Cheers. ... Oh, now that I think of it, could you update my entry to correct it – CMDR WR3ND instead of CMND WR3ND – when you have the time? It's listed toward the end of August, 3301. This was due to a typo I made in my original entry submission before editing it to correct it. :o

    Yes, atmospheric worlds, esspecially more interesting ones like gas giants, are something I've been looking forward to for a while. Hope they're on the short list portion of the long list, if you know what I mean. :) Anyway, congratulations again on your achievement.

    Right on. Partly what I meant with the Sgr A list though is that it isn't quite the same sort of achievement that it once was with all the changes to the game since 3301. But hey, progress and all that, I suppose. Cheers.

    You could just fly a sindewinder around until you get bored and then try the next ship up and repeat Cos you donit need a reste partial or therwise to do the stuff you want too. You dont need to reset to fly a bog standard ship and work you way back up. Just make a not e of the credist you have got now and dont spend them, just use what you have after that point.

    Playing the game as a survivalist as I do – we all get our kicks somehow – I avoid these hotbeds. Seeing rebuy screens and throwing away ships for the fun of it doesn't help with my immersion. I guess I just wish it all made more sense in a game universe continuity and Commander agency sort of way. Until such time, I'll be out in the black still most likely and leave it for the rest of you to contend with. Gone are the days where my un-Engineered rum runner Cobra could effectively participate in these sort of things. At least it was fun while it lasted, helping get Obsidian Orbital built and the like. To each their own and all that.

    Well after talking to you last week I purchased a IClipper and kitted it out for racing. I've been practicing in canyons when time permits and also have "lit a fire" in my Facebook group for other commanders. You are welcome to also join our group "American Elite Commanders" and help us with your experience and expertise. I to was thinking about starting a precision flying team. So looking forward to getting together. I will be out of town next week but will stay in touch, just don't have access to my "Rig". BTW my ships name is Speagle, and my in game name is Lazlo Thon. Don't have access to beta unfortunately but I do have Horizons. Talk to you later.......o7

    Hi,
    A while ago i saw you post in a thread, saying long range missions from obsidian orbital could be as profitable as robigo. I went and did some runs from the orbital to the station, im allied with the ant hill mob from doing that, but no 6 million credit missions have appeared. Do i have to do something else or has this been nerfed? Im elite in trade btw.
