    And if you are just taking the pitch speeds (which your numbers aren't the full story) as indication of the agility of a ship then this conversation isn't going to go anywhere. Thrusters, yaw and roll ratios etc are all just as important to how a ship flys. The Viper IV has better stats for all of them up to 3 pips in eng (apart from boost speed) So in comparison the Cobra III has to have 4 pips to eng to beat the viper IV at which point it can't sustain fire for long and has no shield to speak of. The only thing it can do is run away fast. But hey what would I know as the pitch is all that matters right...

    I can't agree with this statement. Stock it has better agility than a stock cobra III and is only let down by the boost speed in comparison. Modest rolls with grade 3 drive make this one of the most agile small ships in the game to fight with.

    I don't think there will be a Norse translation of, "I said Cookiebots, not Boogiebots!"

    I was going to post a link to EDTS, which I've never used but I know that a lot (lol) of other BRC cmdrs use, but Cookiehole beat me - nothing new there! ;) If you're playing with the Raikogram in excel anyway though, you can use the solver plugin to solve travelling salesman problems, which is what I normally do. I tend to chuck everything Buckyball related into excel anyway. Just Google for "excel solver travelling salesman". The solver plugin is a part of excel, it's not a third party plugin, you just need to activate it. As most of our races only have four or five stops, and since number of jumps is a smaller number than lightyears, I usually have a go manually first and then check with excel.

    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.

    Ozric replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    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

    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

    As others have said, how do you get to lose a ship (+ cargo?) worth 21M and not know there's no pause ? OP, how long have you been playing ?

    run submitted. when entering start & finish times there is no 'seconds' option, felt a bit strange. possibly more important, there is no field for video submission. it's here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WL_kH9fqyK0

    Yes, I'm in a Tradeconda (limited shields, PP, etc) whereas there were maybe 8 cops (including a Conda). Not sure if the "pirates" were engineered in any way (not sure if that's been implemented), but they took down my shields and various modules within the 10 secs it took for SysSec to arrive.

    I've seen it without boost, lending further credence to the 1000Ly idea.

    I'll second the Viper MK IV!!! It is one of the best platforms for learning FA-off anyways. And the weapon placement you already know with the MK III. Also come join our discord and chat all about FA-off'ing :D

    But remember that this speed is only full bore straight line speed, It isn't engaging in combat or any manoeuvres at that speed.
