    Naming is a little odd as it hasn't been explained, I find it humorous that such a detail would bother anybody to this level. It's just a name. What happens if you meet people in RL who you can't put in a gender box? Personally I know several.

    My Corvette boosts to ~330 and I have zero issues getting 5+km from a Thargoid for a low wake egress. You just have to use their momentum against them, and fly smart. Btw, you can do the same thing in PVP to ditch someone who is marginally faster than you without high waking. You can't use 2 flak on a Corvette, so good aim is more critical taking out the Thargons. On the plus side it only takes a few shots from one flak cannon. On the minus side, my heart sniping aim is good but my ToT timing sucks. So I'm back to running out of missiles. Funny thing is, I think I was doing better without using flak cannons even with the AI/Thargon upgrade. They're time not spent killing hearts.

    Mass hysteria seems much more likely than a mysterious "sonic weapon" without any of the massive speaker systems required in evidence.

    This is at the heart of Russia's nihilistic geopolitical doctrine. They essentially treat everything as a zero-sum game. Making your neighbors lives worse is apparently just as good as making your own life better. It's all about relative rankings. It's a frankly moronic way to think. I blame the Soviet system which produced Putin. When you have no values, you assume nobody else has any either. The right wing pundit who came up with the term "virtue signalling" is another good example. It's the thinking that no male is honestly a feminist, some just pretend to get into the pants of feminists.

    I mean that you have to go into "free camera" to move the viewpoint and every time I do I muck up ship movement or just end up with the camera moving and the ship stopping or something else. I know if I spent time learning all the ins-and-outs it would be a very capable thing. Trouble is - Ah cannae be bothered Jimmy! Seriously though, it is just such a mess - one control to go to external camera then another to go to free camera and then another to be able to move the camera without the ship stopping (if you manage it) - ARRRRRGGGGGGGhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... Drives me nuts. Just let me move the external camera like I used to be able to do - leave the free camera stuff to all the budding Spielbergs and Lynches. Anywayup - just ignore me I am a nouveau-Luddite I think. :)

    1. No - it really wouldn't. 2. If you can't find variations in things to do then maybe you don't really "love this game". 3. Exclamation marks are a sad sign when used all over the place.

    Have I misunderstood the content or have you made an arithmetic boo-boo? 3 x 28" 1920 x 1080 monitors gives you 5760 x 1080 Are you suggesting using more than 3 monitors? What have I mis-read?

    I recommend taking a critical look and thinking about the nature of confirmation bias. The most likely reason for RT seeming reasonable is that they are pushing an angle that you would prefer to be true. That's how our brains work. Don't assume to be free of bias and above wishful thinking. The prise of intellectual freedom is eternal vigilance. RT is a propaganda arm. It's a tool in hybrid warfare.

    The EMP isn't devastating if you give yourself breathing room before it goes off with a good boost + FAOff. The yellow lightning, corrosive bio-torp, or Thargon missile barrage are each way more deadly. But yeah if you get hit with an EMP from close range, and then whammy'd by any of these, youre gonna have a bad day.

    Hi Op. There is no reason why the should be wanted other wise they woudl be sent after each other until they are all gone :D Yes you can clear bounties by paying them off after a rebuy etc. It is perfectly possible to be at any level of combat and in any kind of ship and not have a bounty on you. Bounty Hunters are clean by default. They are going after criminals. They are not space pirates. They will become wanted if they attack you in a system where you are clean.

About Arry

Basic Information

About Arry
Biography:
I'm a dog. A dog was in space long before man had the nerve to venture there.
I am fed and watered by an old feller, who still thinks that playing Elite should be done in the traditional way; via a keyboard, with a P.C. that has to crash every hour or so. So today he is using a Toshiba, satellite pro C660, duel core Intel 1.6GHz CPU, 8 GB of Ram and unknown GPU. No idea of "frame rates" etc.
Rules to play the game this way?
Avoid Star-ports, combat and pressing more that one key at any time. So it feels a bit like using the ZX81, but at least today, he can cough without the system crashing.
His aim in life is to reach Elite, within my lifetime?
Location:
Somewhere near Sol?
Interests:
Bones, chewing up things and spiting them out and the ocational ball licking.
Occupation:
See above?

Signature


WOOF! WOOF!

WHAT!? You think I said or did something wrong again? Blame T.j's cat.

8 out of 10 Cats, have me on their ignore lists: 5 out of 10 posters; have me on their kill lists?

Oh dear, it seems that I have joined the Elite. Does that mean, that now I have to oppress the masses?
