    Pretty sure the tier 5 FSD mod on my Vulture that I posted in the build link for the ship isn't something someone would consider being up for contention either way, unfortunately – it certainly isn't breaking any records. But hey, at least it manages to save me a bit of power too. It was the first tier 5 FSD mod I did, and I've only bothered with doing one roll per ship so far, naturally without exploiting, of course.

    Jump range is mostly irrelevant for general exploration efficiency. It's only really necessary when trying to race places or get to really hard to reach and rare patches of systems that require longer jumps to reach. A good fuel scoop is generally more important in terms of overall exploration efficiency. A 20 LY jump range is perfectly adequate for getting to 99.99+ percent of systems in the game. Here's my fully combat loaded Vulture explorer ship, The Ronin out at the Skull and Crossbones Nebula, 15K LY out along the rim. ↓

    What's with all the irrelevant jump distances? Pretty sure the OP is just asking about your base FSD jump range with your given loadout, not jumponium nor neutron/white dwarf star boosts.

    I'm not a great combat pilot, I can avoid taking hits well but struggle to lay down effective fire in return. I play in Open but 99% alone & PvE, apart from my location (I avoid hotspots like a true country bumkin) I am probably very much a pirate's content, and avoiding them is content for me. Your proposed C&P system would of course apply to all, you and I both. I am careful to only pirate (PvE) in anarchy system, and maintain a squeaky clean image but occasionally make mistakes & get a bounty. I don't suicidewinder it away, so on those occasions I run for the hills & explore for a week or so until the heat has died down & then return to pay off the fine. If FDev are to implement an AI-based C&P system it needs to be able to allow me to escape, but still be a sufficient deterrent/fun for a player at your level (and familiarity with the wrong side of the law). I struggle with envisioning something that would accommodate us both, inevitably it will always be too lenient at your end, or too harsh at...

    I agree. They will still be skilled pilots, and will soon be back I'm sure. Anyone that has lost their mods but takes a break now will always be behind their peers who got back on the horse straight away. No rest for the wicked ;)

    I think your C&P concept is solid & am broadly in favour of it. However I believe there is more fun to be had with some ambiguity, some leeway for lateral thinking. Not every Pirate is as capable as you. I am curious to know if your recent change in direction is related to this unfolding story?

    "A lot" is a relative term, <100 is still a lot. Doesn't mean the same as "The majority" does it? ;)

    There is no consensual or non-consensual PvP, there is only Organised PvP & Freeform PvP. One of the reasons I play in Open is for that little extra risk of getting mugged, and (hopefully) the satisfaction & adrenaline rush of escaping ;)

    Young lady. It would be my pleasure to grasp your hand and show you that you should not be afraid. In other words, Bhs are currently a waster of time. There are two types. Innies and outies. A very few will let you "Fly" through the Black hole. These should be reported. The rest of them are eyecandy and nothing more. Approach with a speed of 40-30 kms. Good hunting!

    I know. Ive done it again. Anyhow. Here's my point. I love this game. And I know the title is a bit misleading. Say you wanted to get kids exploring the galaxy. Say you gave cosmologists and astronomers a rendition of the REAL galaxy we live in. To the extent of our knowledge. Say that students studying cosmology and astronomy could actually rely on ED to provide up to date data on systems. I want to say this to the guys and gals at FD. Do you really think you can compete with SC? And the sheer amount of money that has been thrown at it?

    in sc its measured in kilometers per second at lowest and as a multiplier of c (speed of light) at highest speeds. Mm is million meters per second. it changes depending on the speed otherwise you would have numbers across the screen at 1200c

    easy. they arent all the same. i dont know what systems you are jumping to in the bubble, but there are neutron star primaries, the scoopables. white dwarf. black hole are always fun. finding earth likes and water worlds. landing after a scan and driving around shooting rocks for mats to replenish my FSD injection mats. plus the points of interest you can run across on the planets. there are still the odd USS way out. i must admit i disable the dull ones (all brown dwarf and also class m even though you can scoop class m - even find rarely the odd waterworld. but if you let it, the gal map route plotter will pick ALL class m where it can rather then scoopables with more chance of something good. probably because most stars are class m but it feels like its trying to annoy me...). then the race to the nearest station when you find something very unusual like my black hole primary with 3 neutorn stars orbitting it like insane tornadoes. i WANTED my name on a black hole and what a system to do it with!...

    you posted in haste, saw you made an error and edited post admitting to the mistake. that takes guts that not many seem to have, along with ability to set aside your pride which even fewer seem to have. repped for that.

    not pick a faction in a CZ (because i didnt know you had to or how to) when trying to earn combat bonds not once but 3 times in my FAS. and wondering why i kept having EVERYONE fire at me. i lucked out with hefty repair bills all three times then went and googled how to pick faction etc, and used some advice from a thread posted here when i was doing it. another episode of idiocy - my first trip out the bubble exploring in my (then) armed trader/explorer asp ex. i play on a controller and im 1000+ly out in my unengineered asp with 26 ly standard fsd. im in supercruise at high speed. i hiy Y button twice by accident. emergency drop out, spinning damage. i hadnt fitted an AFMU. aborted trip back to the bubble. 3rd one. i have an FAS. cockpit looks great, fights pretty good. hull tanks so i can live long enough to wake. it also has a heat problem. firing my beams too long can trigger heat warnings. i jump into a system en route to someplace i forget. im in the heat zone scooping. scooping is fun because...

    I've just come home from a short drive with my (10YO) son. In the car we were taking about white lines down the centre of the road, and how sometimes it's dashed, sometimes it's solid. I explained that in the highway code, there are things you should (and should not) do, and things that you must (or must not) do. He had no difficulty understanding this concept.

    Yep.. Now if that then means it might mean a dedicated 2.5, and/or it being incorporated in V3, I guess is now the question... TBH, I sort of hope they'd been working on (some) core improvements for V3 and they've just taken this moment in time to mention it.

    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.
