    relayer replied to a thread Anaconda rookie issues in Xbox One
    Everybody's advise, above. I still have trouble docking the Anaconda occasionally - it's that huge belly underneath, and you're the raisin on top. "Better duck!" is exactly the position you should be in. You are the Roof, not in the center. One more tip: I get in the most trouble when I reduce speed to 100 (legal) - when the Conda gets close to the rack, she tends to get sucked upwards a bit. If I just go in at 150, I'm fine. I'll even wait for a ship to clear the grid so I have an open field. Just mutter under your breath at the policemarms telling you you're naughty and go in a bit hot.

    I set my mind to getting Trade Elite, then 1blnCR while also having a small, choice fleet with all the (engineer) trimmings. I did that. It took awhile but it got done. I have absolutely no reasons to do anything for credits now, for quite some time.* So I am going to do the Ruins run, even after a "nerf" to the reward. I am going to do it for *might sound corny* the views, the data/story (even though I know some of it from the forums), the journey & lore. What it pays doesn't matter to me. It's connecting me deeper into the game world. I know this is about farming for credits, but I don't see how the mission is in any way faulted, if someone wants to actually do the mission. I posted this because there's another reason to do it besides the payout, which is not the sole-and-only criteria. It depends on where your head is at. Farmers gonna farm, people gonna make up excuses & reasons why something is "exploitive" but not an "exploit." Who cares if people make 128milCR an hour? Cause they can...

    I'm out exploring ATM and have noticed that when I scan the systems, it takes a while after the honk before the stars and planets show up on the radar. Jumps seem to be ok for now.

    I haven't been killed by them yet, but had some fall right in front of me. One was close enough that I heard it zoom by. Counted my blessings and started coming in low and slow around planetary bases.

    I'd like to see minor factions replace Power Play as well, but that would be unfair to almost a dozen players who enjoy PP. FD are aware that CMDRs want to pledge to minor factions to make the BGS make more sense. Hopefully, they'll put something into place "soon".

    Couple of questions to organisers: 1) If I am submitting a full video, do I still have to open station menu or is it enough to see the ship clock? 2) Is using Voice Attack allowed? My first trial run in the Adder was 15:30, but I did not open the station menus.

    I for one would love to see the beige banished and the smooth valleys vanished Alas, there's a lot of work involved in that and much consideration of priority, work involved and availability of resources. I'll just have to wait before I get the SRV properly prospecting again

    FAO: CMDR jgm Thank you so much for this wonderful tool. I got a new HOTAS yesterday and have been messing around trying to recall each and every control, and it gets flippin' tedious going back through the game menus all the times! I also used the blank sheet you posted on Page 37 so I could use a pencil and eraser until I have become more settled with my controls, so perhaps posting those blank reference sheets for each of the supported controllers would help people out as well? Not trying to tell you how to suck eggs though, as this work is just fantastic, but I found it helpful to literally start with a blank sheet and begin to fill them in as I go in the training missions, before I go and splat the 'conda into someone else at the CG!! Just a suggestion anyway :) Overall though I can't thank you enough OP, this is just excellent, and the fact you have shared it sums up why I like the ED community in general, as you didn't have to!! Hope to see you in game sometime soon o7

    The description says you need to make it 5k away from your starting point. You could have checked before you came back to the bubble. Same page as you posted. This is all on you. It's not the mechanic. You just need to complete the requirements like the rest of us.

    I don't understand your reasoning. You haven't made it 5k out, so it's a bad mechanic?

    This is really encouraging to read, and the first half is kind of mirroring the way I have been playing the game, so thank you for this Jason. I like many others in this thread are keen to learn the FA-off legendary skillset, but so far am still only using FA-off as a touch and go measure to turn in combat iykwim? I would like to be able to sit back and think I had mastered doing all things with FA-off for the whole game, and for each ship type as well, but perhaps that is the new challenge that faces me, analagous to what you have described as well after your first 2.5khours of playing. I also don't think it is a bragging thing, it is perhaps a pride-sensation for myself. I like how ships feel with FA-off but simply have never had made] the time to learn how to do it, and as well have never used fixed weaponary for very long, as I get frustrated to not be able to hit things!! So, thank you again, you have given me hope in this endeavour! And thank you to everyone else for their suggestions, and...

    This is fascinating Z - you must let us know how it goes, as I a very intrigued with it!! I sometimes fall into making these ideas in my head or with a 2B pencil, but never end up getting round to making them or even starting on the actual 'building' part of the process, but maybe that is just me :/ The Hat :)

    Sad o say it FD, but I agree totally on this for the last few BHCGs, definitely since the week we had 3 in a row one at Asellus Primus. I think this was 3 weeks ago. So please can you put them back to how they were, so new players can experience what they should be like, and not be put off for the rest of their gaming time going forward. Cheers FD, The Hat :) Hey HK; I was surprised yesterday that when I logged back in, my 5.5m had dropped out of the 10% band. Yesterday's run went back to 10.0m and back into the 10%, but I am afraid I can't be more precise than that. Why not check out the results forecast table that CMDR pprovart creates for us for each CG? I believe the links to them are at the bottom of each first post that Kietrax and the other mods keep/maintain for us each week :) They get more accurate as the CG comes to a close of course, but they normally give a good idea of the boundaries by now :)

    I have to agree with Kietrax here - why all this complaining about low profits for the CGs?!? Go back a few months and you were lucky to make any profits for a trading CG; that was how they were set-up as the point to it all was to invest time in a different part of the game for a change, that would yield something different for the community and the game going forward! When profits started to turn up it was seen as a crazy 'plus' for everyone, as we started to be able to carry on pushing up our trade rank at the same time! So please don't complain guys - I guess the recent Rares CG may have mislead people as it had stupid high profits, but those only ever used to come along now and again, like the meta-alloy one, or the slave-liberation one from ages back. Trade CGs are what they are - a different part of the game to play in a different way to simple trade runs. However, if you want to add a trading slant to the trading CGs and continue to push up your trade rank, then do like others have mentioned: run...
