    Because reasons. Someone at FD either considered it a good idea, or just the easiest to implement. Given all the things that were added in the meantime, I think it would be much better if limpet controllers were like SLF bays - a generic controller with slots into which you put reusable limpets of your chosen type, with larger classes of limpet controllers having more slots and more reserve limpets.

    This is the exact reason high money earning methods are nerfed. More than once Frontier have said they reduce certain methods to make them all equal, as they want to give people "choice". After Rhea, Frontier stated they didn't want people gravitating towards the easier method and ignoring other ones. So yes, Frontier do understand this - but for some reason the same logic is not being applied to the community goals.

    Yepp. Alongside with KWS etc. - every type of utility that is manually activated should have a dedicated key binding option.

    It's the attitude that is unhelpful IMO. "OP you are sooo dumb!" But it is those replying who have not understood. That is typical here, unfortunately.

    For what it's worth, in Mobius PVE I make an effort to put Multicrew open when doing bounty hunting. Sometimes otherwise...but not much point 'cept to have a chat, is there?

    One. 3rd planet is a HMC. 4th and 5th are Water Worlds. 6th is the Earthlike. edit: Wow, nevermind. That...really? All HMC and only 5 is a water world? Nahhhhh, no way! I might even bug report that if that's true and were a system I'd been to....

    V'larr replied to a thread 21000000 loss in Dangerous Discussion
    The game isn't paused until you exit to the Main Menu. That's just the kind of game it is. (But you are also 100% safe inside a docking bay.) If you contact Support via their ticket system and explain your situation, I'm sure they'll assist you with reimbursement. They are quite generous and understanding. Just don't abuse it and force them to get stingy with you. ;)

    I remember seeing my first Occupied Life Pod in a USS. I accidentally ran it over. I've since taken to always gingerly, carefully taking these lost souls home safely when I encounter them, as repentance for that poor, poor individual.

    Why do you think new players should be able to catch up with veteran ones?? One of the features of the Elite genre has always been the idea of a slow and difficult start, getting easier as you play. Jumping straight to the easy part misses the point.

    The Python does have notably poor pitch performance. You'll want to make use of roll+yaw in addition to pitch when turning for maximum possible rate. Spending a lot of your time in Reverse may also be advisable, as is clever use of your lateral thrusters. I personally, at first, went with two large turrets, two fixed mediums, and a gimballed large under the nose, with my first Python loadout. Currently, I have two fixed beams and three large gimballed multicannons, but it's also got DD5 thrusters now. (And I still sometimes have issue aiming those beams, so...YMMV.) But the shields on the Python are pretty good, the hardpoint layout is fantastic, and there's no ship that can do everything the Python can do - the one thing it lacks is a fighter bay.

    Wait, what can you possibly mean, that just playing the game like normal without jumping in the nearest "Get Rich Quick, ers!" bandwagon can be just as lucrative and profitable, if not more??? That would just be inconcievable! :rolleyes: Also, yes, if anyone does not know, Sol and Alpha Centauri are 4.38 (4.4 rounded up) LY away from each other. The OP is based in Sol, and he is a troll. :P (But for getting a full stack of missions without relogging, he is correct: find a system with lots of stations and Federal factions, and you're set. No gimmicks required, and no trips to Reddit hotspots necessary.)

    That's profit share, and that is dependent upon which rank you hired them at as well. I'm talking about *experience* gain here, something that is not at all made visible/explained ingame.

    Preemptively defending a clean ship from a space-murderer I haven't scanned yet is not tunnel vision.

    I mean, I'm kind of surprised that you didn't at least find an NPC pirate to deal with while escorting ships. You could always have visited some USS's or done local bounty hunting at the nav beacon or something. Can we stop perpetuating the myth about 1.6 AI, though? The AI then was not "better" or "good", it was bugged to Harma and back and had extremely-unintentional god-mode weapons while simultaneously doing dumb things like pirouetting in place and forgetting to mount weapons (or mounting only turreted weapons for the same effect). All of which has since been fixed.
