    nope, the DBS has class 3 as a max internal, the DBE class 4 (same as cobra). I'll third the t6 as a good cheap passenger ship, if dolphin isn't an option. you can play around with all the ship loadouts at https://coriolis.edcd.io/ or edshipyard.com

    I'd argue there is something wrong if there would be NO traffic. we are all used to some background noise; what we are not used to is that background noise hurting our controlling factions that much ;-) if i see 20 ships in the traffic report in some system "we" are controlling since a long time, and i can assume, probably only 5-6 of "ours", as "we" don't work the system, i can also assume that maybe 5 to 10 of them cashed in some superpower bounties which they gained on the way. maybe the same number, but probablly a lower number of "our" bounties. pre 2.3. lt would have gone to "us". now, depending on the number of superpower aligned minor factions, "we" need to counter 10-40 bounty redeems... the same goes for working a system. "we" had around 400 bounty redeems yesterday in the system "we" plan to expand from next. I assume that 30-50% are superpower bounties, which means, as there are two superpower aligned minor factions in system, if all the other are "ours" (unlikely), "we" will still loose...

    lhs 28 is already li yong rui space :-), but your plan sounds solid. I'd suggest starting with a standard RES for a few runs, proceed with a high res, and and once that is too easy, nip into a haz res. systems listed all have all "levels" of RES.

    So far as I am aware, the distinction was originally put in place due to a concern that open play might be at a disadvantage in witchspace/transition times. It's something that carried over from the original Buckyball Runs. I don't think we've seen any actual evidence that there is a difference between the modes, and such evidence would be difficult to spot as we haven't seen many participants on the solo/private group side. My personal view is that I don't think there's any need to keep the distinction. That said, I would always encourage racers to participate in open play, as it's fun to encounter other racers on the course :). Updated banner now on the website. Signature version is also there if anybody wants to link to that: www.buckyballracing.org.uk/images/theaquarianjob_sig.png

    Can I just say, I'm seeing this race banner around quite a lot now and it catches my eye every single time ... it's absolutely damn gorgeous! Nice work. On the Open/Solo subject, I must say I've always kinda avoided the issue, generally not even bothering to ask which mode was used in race submissions. I like the idea that we encourage people to race in Open (it's always brilliant when you encounter other racers out on the circuit) but in practice I'm sure other factors such as GPU, network speed, graphics quality settings, etc have a far greater impact on race times than game mode. Really looking forward to this race ... it sounds like it might be a bit Total Recally (combined ship/SRV action) and I missed out on competing in those.

    This is something I really wanted to do (and still do so don't be surprised in the next race if I start asking people if I can tag along with my camera). Couple of quick questions ... do you think those appalling drop from SC times were caused by your multi-crewing? I was curious why you didn't seem to use the external camera at all while in supercruise ... is it not possible?

    This looks interesting, is this the galnet feed that you use for the toolbox by any chance? https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/67293-Galnews-feed-gt-TTS?p=5452034&viewfull=1#post5452034 P.S. the dreaded cmd.exe popup has resurfaced ... I've been in VR this week so it hasn't caused me too much problem but that registry edit is clearly not quite the end of the matter. How's your system been since you upgraded Windows and first saw the error?

    Nice post sir ... thanks for saying thanks! Shame about the final but hey ho ... YOU WON A NEW COMPUTER!!!!! Wooooo Hooooo! Exciting stuff and I look forward to the unboxing video. o7 - - - Updated - - - P.S. I forgot to say ... I have a suggestion for a name for your next ship if I might be so bold ... "Rise Above It". I was going to use it myself but you know what ... I bequeath it to you. I suppose you could go with "Ryzen Above It" (baddum tish) but I think that has some associations that are perhaps best forgotten. If you ever do it send me a screenie! :D

    Nice post OP! We're not all combat experts and it's great to hear that some basic evasive manoeuvres carried out even non-perfectly in the heat of the moment can still be effective. I had an encounter earlier in the week actually where I was coming in to Jameson Memorial (a common griefer haunt) when I saw the dreaded hollow triangle circling around the system. It gave me a chance to try out something that actually worked moderately well. So, anticipating that I'd get interdicted, I slowed down and dropped out of supercruise before he/she could get behind me. Then I engaged supercruise again but left my throttle parked at zero. Once it'd spooled up I just sat there with my frameshift drive humming and raring to go. Sure enough, after a minute the other commander dropped in to my instance. The second he appeared I hit the throttle and jumped straight back into SC. In the time it took him to spool his own FSD back up (actually a much shorter period than I'd hoped if I'm honest, presumably because there was...

    - one that can carry more cargo (with add-on trailers even?) - for collecting stuff from crashed ships, etc (but is slower perhaps) - one that can go a lot faster (perhaps better manoeuverability) - for racing (but maybe has zero cargo capacity) - one that has better weaponry and shields - for base assaults (but maybe its thrusters aren't as good) Need I go on? No need for additional gameplay to justify new SRV types.

    it works on the module, not the ship. so you can transfer the engineered modul. for exampel i have engineered a bunch of class 5 fsd (python, asmpE, dbe, ...) - all on my dbe, transferring the moduls later to other ships.

    get another ship? a hauler, an adder, a dbe...? something which is suited better for this job? that said, fsd range increase, especially getting ship to ~20 (FDL) or >45 (dbe, aspe, conda) is definetly a QOL feature.
