    BS. Your personality isn't influenced by your country of birth. If the ties are so important for you then I'm sure you have no problem with giving Alsace back to Germany. :P The main differences between a German and a Spaniard, are cultural background and language. Those differences exist between two German too. If I'm talking to someone from Hamburg or Munich, I'm not sure whether we speak the same language. God beware talking to people from Austria and Switzerland. I'm not able to understand them properly 99% of the time.

    Why shouldn't they be able to become Belgians? Germany had the Ius Sanguinis for a long time and we dropped it. Modern nationstates aren't defined by culture nor heritage. They're solely defined by the old borders which were created throughout history.

    And it's good that they canceled that. However I wouldn't be too sure that Google can escape the tax in the EU by having their HQ in the UK in the future. That's your opinion. The choice of the people who do that, is as valid.

    They would if they illegitimately rolled drives on another ship. Basically if you've used the exploit enough to be targeted then having 1 FSD on one ship that is exploited is enough for FDev to remove all G5 FSD range improvements across all ships. Thats the way I understand it anyway.

    The engineer exploit was far more serious than any money or BGS exploits. (Also, not everything that has been labelled as an exploit by us may actually have been one.) It allowed the perpetrators to not just get stuff a bit faster, but on a massive scale where reaching the same outcome as a cheated set of upgrades would take many years, possibly decades. Thus they reached a combat performance essentially unattainable by legit gameplay. That said, the exploit did indeed highlight the very design issues with the engineers that many have been pointing out since the 2.1 beta. We will see in in 2.4 whether FD will abandon the engineers or double down on them...

    Engineering team has checked in another update to the sheet this morning. Little past the halfway mark now. I should have an updated list quite soon on rejections / declined minor faction applications.

    Crumbs, I go away for a weekend and all hell breaks loose! First up: sorry you feel that way Rankaze, that's rough. For what it's worth, I don't think your record is even slightly meaningless - the same as any non-neutron-boosted record isn't, the same as my sub-8 one won't be meaningless once someone blows past it (and they will!). It proves what can be done in the "classic" setup, and I suspect most people - myself included - wouldn't have expected that time to be achievable until some madman went and did it. Tough little ship indeed. :p I'll probably just summarise my feelings on the back-and-forth over the last few pages: I believe Allitnil is correct and even the Hauler can go faster with neutron boosts. I suspect a top-of-board time is not out of the question. I don't think spansh is worth a damn for this purpose - it only wants a jump range, which means it cannot produce jumps which are only valid with non-full tanks, which is a huge problem here. The DBX will indeed continue to get shafted...

    Throttle to 0 on jump Crew die if you lose your ship Never fly without enough for a rebuy Twin beam Taipan-heatsinks let you keep firing! Deselect target if using limpets or they become 1 hit wonders Prospectors limpets. Target it before mining that rock, your wingman can do the same so you can share the goodness Engineer mats drop from mining Rares. Travel over 160ly to get max value from their sale. Rares have a max allocation you can buy but a friend can ferry you out a whole shipload. If an npc messages you that he is about to interdict you, drop down to normal flight before he does and he will appear a short while later just left of your waiting weapons.

    Nice little mini Hutton rares run in the vicinity. Stock up on Gin, Mugs, Pantaa prayer sticks (George pantazis) and Indi Bourbon (Epsilon indi) all within around 1 jump of there and run out 160ly away for max profit!

    At least this should set an example that using exploits can absolutely have consequences. And that's the important bit. Now exploiters should always have in mind that their actions can have consequences. Yes, there's much to do, much lacking, but this is a good start in my view. Well done.

    Even with top rolled FSD range boost and lightweight the difference is going to be approx +80% jump range. The 100% FSD boost premium materials should save most people. You'd literally have to be in the 0.00001% bracket to be in an area you can't return from at which point support may indulge those players to move them somewhere safe. What I'm laughing about is the fact that it'll take them twice as long to get back home when their 60ly range drops to 35ly :p

    They were already competitive inside the EU. The EU budget contribution is miniscule compared to the benefits you draw from it. Alone the right to be able to influence decision regarding the single market and it's regulation is much more worth than the contribution the single members bring in. The only migration you cannot control within the EU is the migration between EU members (and even that's not entirely true, it is possible to decline entry to EU citizens and the UK does that regulary). Migration from third states is down to each EU member state. The UK is not part of the Schengen agreement either, so "Get control of our borders" is already achieved and not more than a slogan.

    No, you got the wrong end of the stick. First they say have you cheated or not. If not then there's zero effect on your account (its account specific/targeted). If the answer is yes then they say: Which mods did they cheat to get? All of that type of mod are then removed even the legit ones.

    OP, I'll have zero pity of any explorer who achieved a grade 5 FSD mod by way of the exploit.

    When are you going to stop indiscriminate player killing? And thanks Frontier for this action. Many of us who've achieved our Engineering mods without exploiting, and just plain 'hard work', are glad of this move.
