    Neutron boosts are risky but pretty easy once you get the hang of it, and they can save quite a lot of time if you plan your route well. My first trip to Colonia was 3.7 hours, and I was a Neutron Highway noob. I'm sure I could get there much faster with practice. Pro Tip: bigger ships are better at navigating the jets.

    For mining and passenger missions, as well as refuelling & rearming, the Witch Head Science Centre is in system HIP 23759. The Orion Nebula Tourist Centre is in system PMD2009 48

    Much appreciate all the hints and tips and the updated OP for this thread. I've just finished a 2nd 2hr session looking for geysers on one particular 600km diameter planet. No luck yet but I'll be trying the glide technique tomorrow (never occured to me to search from that high up).

    Can't argue with this. The only reason to not do this is to make Xbox controllers more "equal" by effectively nerfing the potential of KBM/HOTAS. This is a terrible way to treat PC gamers though.

    I agree that they should be challenging, and I'm not worried about it getting too easy since I'm sure Frontier will just notch up the difficult with each new tool we get, just as they've already done. As for the wakes, you should read the descriptions on the materials you can collect from Thargoid corpses. ;)

    OP, I suspect the clunkiness lies between the chair and the desk. Sure it would be great if the device had a fire group, but it's WAY easier to use than an ECM. An ECM requires precise timing and counters a fast attack. The anti-EMP only requires charging. It's dead easy to use because the Thargoid EMPs are very predictable.

    I would be amazed if there's anything space based in the Hind Nebula, considering the Asteroid Base there the system has been visited a lot this last year.

    Good. If you can defend and counter all the weapons they have, then it makes the whole thing rather pointless. They should be a challenge if you want to try and fight them. I don't think we'll be getting a way of following their wakes anytime soon, or probably, anytime.

    Well it's hard as they're 218Mb each :p However this is a crop of one and if you zoom right in you'll notice how the metal fixings don't lose any quality, but the writing's already blurred. I can't see anything behind the writing though, maybe it's cause the lighting's different but I don't think so. Click the picture to get a fullscreen version.

    I doubt you'll get them to be honest, the writing is deliberately blurred. I take my screenshots at 6k resolution and you still can't read what they say. I only managed to make out water and coffee beans when I first posted that picture, didn't notice toilet roll, but I'm glad they had some at least :D

    Would LOVE to be able to fly an untethered SLF! Especially if we could engineer it a little. Not much, just enough to make it a little more durable and with better power distribution. Maybe get some experimental effects like corrosion, concordant sequence, etc. Maybe limit it to having only Super Cruise, so it requires a carrier ship in the system, or ship transfers to move around the galaxy.

    Well aware of the existing taxis. I'm talking much cheaper and more disposable, more like a commodity or ammo.

    NPCs seem to get all of the best ones. Spotted this one recently... Granted, it's on a Cobra, but you get the idea...

    Give it a really big jump range and no optional internals and it could make for a nice alternative to using Ship Transfer... something you could buy at your current location and sell again at the destination for a few hundred credits... Just being able to use it in SC/HS would be gratifying enough.

    i'm away all next week so a 'blot' may be my only option. so i might as well make it a good one! naturally i spent so long faffing about trying to get 'the perfect shot' of the Buckyball Beer Mat canister that it exploded as i was about to press f10, so you'll have to make do with this! (@thor's eye) intent to sadly miss (another) race. probably
