    Crew, using telepresence, can only be where the ship that they are crewing is - it does not add ships to the conflict.

    Not the only problem that has popped up last night we handed in a who lot of bonds the only anomalies in the traffic was the odd cobra and we gained... -3 so either the cobra destroyed 2x more than we did that day or ours didnt register at all or it registered for the other faction.

    Same reason why my ship, Queen Cassiopeia, shows up in-game as "Queen C***siopeia". It's because I'm a bad influence.

    Players bought it - the stock reduced and the price naturally went up.... :)

    They also have a maximum permissible gross weight of c.30t. Intermodal containers come in several different sizes - in the E: D galaxy they come in one size with one maximum payload.

    Indeed - our ships are more the equivalent of container ships for assorted cargo than bulk carriers. It matters not what's in the container as long as it is the correct mass. .... and the containers must have a usable volume of about 14m³ (as we can carry a tonne of hydrogen in one).

    Welcome Commander! Delighted to have you onboard and thank you for contributing to Elite. Fly safe, drive sound and good luck with your galactic pastimes. The Galactic AcademyMentors will set you up for initial play-through and beyond. The following thread will help you find collaborative game-play and some.

    See my earlier response to another regarding piracy and bounty hunting - and the need to repeatedly interdict those that manage to escape. Interdicting suspected / known attackers in a system where there are other ships needing protecting seems to be as valid a gameplay reason as "leave the system 'cos we say so or we'll destroy you". Define "ordinarily" in this case - there are players that are good and don't bother those that are uninterested in their play-style - it's the ones that impose their play-style on the uninterested that would seem to be the problem, whether they are good or not.

    Major spoilers ahead. Regarding clones ... I don't think there is any direct evidence that Rebecca herself is a clone. Given the likelihood that this Rebecca is a parallel of the Rebecca Weston from Drew's Oolite Saga it seems counter-intuitive that she would be a clone. It does seem, however, that she is responsible for the oo's egg that hatched Octavia Quinton. In the Prologue to Premonition (which basically recounts the entirety of Altera with a few details added, removed or changed) Rebecca hears news of the birth of the Loren's eldest daughter Corine and thinks to herself, "We tried the Federation… that didn’t work out so well. They’ll have to deal with her one day …" It is in that moment, I believe, that the idea for trying another oo's egg (this time inside and Imperial family) began it's gestation. When Luko reveals the Salomé that she is a clone he tells her that the original attempt to reveal what the powers behind the conspiracy were up to began with Elyssia and that Elyssia...

    Whether folk like/dislike or use/not use DC it MUST always be an option, to keep ED as accessible to as many folk as possible.

    Ah fair enough. On the other hand however, as a former tailor's assistant I have a lot of issues with Daniel Craig's dodgy over tight tailoring and things that are off in his James Bond films, but at the same time I can set that aside and realise it's a film it's fantasy - not realism to any significant degree. Besides, on ED, surely in the future we'd have 'inertial dampers' by then?

    I posit they were expressly designed that way using specific soundscapes and frequencies from nature: 1. Bull elephant infrasound 2. Tiger and lion roars. 3. earthquake infrasounds. All of these have been found to evoke a predator response reaction in primates AND humans!

    Indeed, the fact that Naval FSD technology of the superpowers that these Leviathanic craft have is SO far advanced of anything civillians have --though likely not as advanced as Thargoid tech-- could possibly mean they can 'hide' in an area by generating a WitchSpace mini-instance (for want of a better idiom), a mini buble universe perhaps? Maybe it makes them as heavy as planetoids? Speculation of course...
