    Well, I largely agree with both of you, and am just adding this comment here since I'm out of rep for both of you, apparently. And who knows, maybe a dev or the like are watching this thread... Cheers.

    Wow! That's a bucket load of mines!!!!! Well, on my first interdiction of the Asp, I already new he had mines, so simply flew at a constant angle (not behind him) and safetly witness the massive spam taking place. On the second interdiction, I was concentrating on actually getting a cargo scan, and got complacent I guess... That would mean losing rather valuable shield boosters... Hmmm...

    Fair enough, but it gets kind of old pretty quick, at least for me, like when I go on a 30K LY round trip for a couple months, taking my time, and after the first few days out, my paint is already down to 0%.

    I use shields and have them active essentially all the time. Not worth bothering to disable them to save a fraction of a fraction of fuel scooping time, I think. But anyway, I don't think it makes a difference.

    I understand your point. It depends on personal preferences. It took me months to wear down my paint. If I had a choice, I'd probably set my paintjob at 50%. I wish the station repair paintjob command allowed you to select the amount of paintwork you'd like, instead of always fully "repairing" your paint.

    Didn't bother watching the video, but whatever floats your boat, I guess. Did inspire me to make a meme though, not about anything or anyone in particular, mind you. I just think Darth's pose here is pretty flamboyant... :D

    I've brought this up before and have an old thread somewhere in the suggestions section of something talking about it. Basically, the paint jobs degrade way too fast for my liking, being primarily an explorer in the game as I am. Let me see if I can hunt it down...

    I like to roleplay as well. Although my CMDR is an Imperial citizen who would never force other Imperials into the dishonour of abandoning their duty to live out their days on a Federal world, so there would be no interesting internal conflict in that particular situation. Good story too :)

    Highly doubt they would be greedy enough to charge for it, players have for years been customizing their HUD colors to all colors of the rainbow for free.

    I'm pretty sure this is supposed to have been fixed by now. I caught this and bugged it before, but thought I saw patch notes addressing it since then; if you could post a bug report I'm sure Fdev would appreciate the help in finding out why it's still happening.

    Yeah, one of those "cheating" NPCs actually managed to get the hull of my ship down to 51% once back in the Engineers beta, or whenever it was. Hmm, maybe it was after it went live before the "nerf." Anyway, +1 virtual rep.

    Personally, I like the worn look. My AspX paintjob is at 0%. I hate the fact that if you die, your new ship has 100% paint. Here's a pic; it's not obvious, but the paint is black with a green stripe and that's the remains of a Distant Worlds Expedition decal. And yes, I paid real money for that paintjob and then sandblasted most of it away! :D

    I did not know that. Thanks for the tip! Rep++ In the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying "Beware of the Leopard."? :D There's a "Manual" link in the game launcher in the upper right.

    Instancing, time of day and in game location all make a huge difference in player experience. It also makes equipping a wake scanner useless for pvp as chances are if you chase someone to a different system they won't be instanced with you.

    Fair points. They do, in fact, have a massive and growing collection of serious pvp wingfights and duels (both internal and with other pvp groups) that are pretty easy to find online.

    The EDTracker is fairly inexpensive. I like mine a lot. Yes, VR is very immersive, however, the Rift and the Vive are both moderately low resolution. I won't upgrade to VR until the resolution is improved (and I'll need to upgrade my graphics card too). Did you actually get to try it out? It sounds like a great device, but I'm hesitant to spend that kind of money for a product by a relatively unknown company.

    Indeed it does. Personally, I actually hold myself to more stringent standards than most as I do not use exploits of any sort including mode swapping to refresh menus etc but it's difficult to take a group seriously that makes such loud claims against it when sitting at the very head of the group is an individual that has been caught out using nearly every single one out there including the log and the engineering exploit that FD has recently dealt with. To be clear, I actually like and respect many individuals within their group, but not the group itself because of the hypocrisy that comes from the very top.

    It can be a pretty decent game out here in the black. Wouldn't mind if Frontier continued enhancing the best parts of this game for those of us that actually care for it. As I said before though, to each their own.

    Good point. I over-simplified. The ADS is stored in an "optional" (cargo) slot, but is activated by deploying hardpoints, so it looks like a weapon to the game. Other scanners work the same way. I have an AspX with no weapons fitted, but when I use a Wake Scanner near a station, the station controller will give me a stern warning to retract my weapons. It's possible that a ship with no weapons or scanners would still appear as a triangle, if it deploys its empty hardpoints.

    Good thing this game isn't Eve. Besides, there's really no rhyme or reason to "stay and fight." At best you're not accomplishing much of anything and you're not able to "vanquish evil doers" or whatever, not unless someone is going into it without a rebuy or something. The long and the short of it is that it's for its own sake, not really anything else substantial, i.e., it's mostly worthless and meaningless in the game to me and many others, just a game universe continuity nuisance or a bit of a thrill now and then, depending how you look at it.

    I didn't realise. Perhaps my info is outdated but he's still top dog (or whatever the official title is) at the Discord. And no, I'm not accusing HP of any wrongdoing nor was I aiming that comment at him.

    Hi there Malc' :-)
    Hope all is good with you?
    I don't play anything like s much as I used to. Because I don't enjoy it that much. Can't get into "Engineers" ....too much RNG action for my taste.
    Hope you are doing well.
