    I don't seem to be able to keep it on for 5 seconds, drains my distributor straight away. Guess my explorer with it's 2D distributor (for low weight) isn't ideal for this. Had a couple of hyperdictions, but haven't managed to dodge the EMP. Edit: Note to self, buying 3 Field Neutralisers and putting them all on the same fire key was a bad idea :)

    Nice work though - that makes sense Edit: 2015231184 315185 : TOWARD CORE So in summary it reads: TOWARD CORE IC <list of planet types> NEBULA <list of atmosphere compositions> 4606 Ship Name FB-X C1-16

    I asked on the CG thread yesterday and they reckon that FD has said that the anti-EMP will be unlocked successfully even at current level. Though I guess it will only be at Military bases, which limits the usefulness of all the other base types, as the only place to buy everything will be military. Anti-EMP should make hyperdictions more fun - had a few yesterday while running the Palin mission, though they didn't attack me for my payload, which I was expecting.

    50 Ly isn't a great roll on a DBX - shouldn't be difficult to get that again.

    Yup - several copies possible. You only need one of each. Hmm, need to get FAQ moved so I can update it. Best maps are Canonn: Best route plotter is shipyard: (But they are in the FAQ, ignore me) The route plotter tells you which obelisks you need to scan

    Do you have CRCR? The materials can corrode your cargo hatch and eject themselves - watch the message windows.

    Factabulous replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    Yup - nothing to do with INRA is it? which is why it's been discussed in the tinfoil thread, and posted on the GCS thread.

    Sounds like the mirroring bug. maybe FD flipped a switch today to change interactions and it didn't work as expected. OP: Normally if you have thargoid stuff they 'ask' you for it. Not politely as I understood :)

    Can we get the planets that are not permit locked but people have had issues landing (Ganymede, Moon, Callisto) on broken out from those with permits (Lave 2, Diso 5 C). In fact I just landed on Ganymede & Callisto, but I haven't got specific permits for them. Unless they're locked on a Fed rank or something? Luna / Moon isn't even landable, so not sure why this is on the list at all.

    Mission usually spawns when you dock at Obsidian, sometimes need to leave Maia and reenter. Don't believe it relies on reputation, unless you can prove otherwise ;) Would have expected the mission to boost the station owner, but that faction doesn't own any stations - curious.

    I've been looking at NH3 = Ammonia World, He = Helium Giant, not got a good answer for the others. Currently visiting systems with a B 3 Helium world as there are only 22, but no match yet. Those numbers might help narrow things down - if the first set are related to the known base and the second to the unknown one... Here is my transcription for reference: :2015231184 315185 93::M-AB-HMC,R-HMC-I-I-I-I:M-HMC-I-I-I::145221121::Null-Null,Null-NH3-Ar-Ar-N-Ne:Null-Null-Null-He::DF0D::Ship name::62-24 3A-P: Edit: Aha! You are correct - the elements match the elements on the planets in those positions in IC 4604 Sector FB-X c1-16! Now what does the rest mean :)

    Well, the distance is the distance to the Sarasvati system IC 4604 Sector FB-X c1-16. The M-AB-HMC section is listing the planet types (M-class, Asteroid belt, High Metal Content etc) Don't think anyone has looked any deeper into what the rest means, though it looks like it might be describing a different system... good idea

    Factabulous replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    I see your point - it's just that 99.99999% of exploring is finding nothing of interest, so having to play in silence is quite a challenge. At least in the FPS you'll see the blood spatter as they shoot you :)

    As others have said, they didn't ask for credits - though reading the whole message can be hard when you are stressed by the interdiction. Best thing to do is get better at avoiding interdictions - if you can beat the mini-game then you won't get interdicted (by that NPC) again, if you run after being interdicted they can try again.

    This is horrible - I always play with music on so don't hear any sounds on entering systems - don't games have accessibility guidelines? :(
