    1. You had not landed so you were still flying and the rules for AI spawning are normal I suppose but see my comment at the bottom. 2. The AI asks for cargo - therfore you must have had some cargo - if you didn't then bug report it. 3. Your link to the other vids in the other thread give an error. I have never had a pirate turn up as I was landing - they frequently turn up on launching - had you tpuched down then lifted off again?

    Just pull in behind a ship of the same type and follow it in and make notes.

    Thanks a lot for that, very helpful. I just wish I had unlimited rolls! Can anyone give me help on where to find engineering items? I know that's pretty general, and I guess I could use one of the databases available, but how do you find specific things in the game? Even metals/minerals, do you just hope some port has them? Or just hope that mining at asteroid or rock on a planet will have something? I've landed on a planet, cruised around in the SRV, but couldn't even collect anything - tried hitting rocks with the SRV weapon but nothing happened. Any help here? (obviously I'm a noob - but making progress and having fun)

    NPCs can have engineered modules, including weapons. Below Master have none, increasing probability until Deadly and Elite will always have engineer mods.

    I didn't say it was impossible to survive or win against them, just saying that even in PvE you will come up against engineered opposition. This is just a journal entry I believe, to show that items have been contributed to the engineer. It seems the journal doesn't note that at the moment.

    MalcYorks replied to a thread EDDiscovery in Elite Exploration
    I'm beginning to seriously regret recommending EDD to you now. :o Whilst your patience is still intact, have you tried the "portable" version to see if that works OK? The file to download is from website. It is totally stand-alone and shouldn't interfere with anything (so I believe / assume). The "run as administrator" and "disable antivirus" tips have already been passed on, I have not needed to disable antivirus for EDD ever.

    Except for the fact that you can come up against Deadly and Elite NPCs who have engineer modified weapons etc. So no, in actual fact, things have changed and you can't actually go through the game whilst ignoring Engineers - it's one of the things that really annoys Mac users.

    Wales and Scotland have derided this deal as it has been structured to avoid the Barnett formula: From the Guardian: The first minister of Wales, Carwyn Jones, described the deal as unacceptable, after meeting with the secretary of state for Wales, Alun Cairns. He said Cairns had a “duty to fight against this deal and secure additional funding for our country”. “Today’s deal represents a straight bung to keep a weak prime minister and a faltering government in office,” Jones said. The SNP’s Westminster leader Ian Blackford MP accused the Tories of signing a “grubby deal with the DUP” after weeks of back-room negotiations.

    Agreed; it is just a very sad fact of life, that such things, which are often predicted; have to happen, before the world shouts and things are done to make changes. You quoted the Titanic; again, it was a cost issue and an ascetic issue that were the driving factors behind the lack of lifeboats. I read yesterday, that the Tories are to drop plans to water down fire safety standards in schools, due to this latest tragedy; I won't quote the source as I don't feel in is reliable enough for me to use as a quote, but it is there and with a little research can be confirmed. It is however a sad fact; that those who have the gold, make the rules and to hell with everyone else.

    I liked this in the Guardian ilve blog: Jane Merrick (@janemerrick23) Am hearing that the Tory-DUP deal is now just a matter of "dotting the is and crossing out of the LGBTs". :)

    Well all council, authority and government projects by law have to be put out for "competitive tender" and there have to be VERY strong reasons to not select the lowest. Yes proper checks should have been carried out and certificates of compliance have to be awarded. However, in this particular case one assumes that the cladding panels must have been declared compliant with the regulations and it will now be up to the authorities to determine if the compliance was falsified, the certification was incompetent or corrupt and if the building regulations were correct / sufficient. There is a lot written already about the "scrap red tape" attitude in government since 2010 plus of course maybe the cuts to council funding since then have impacted on the checking you refer to.

    Yeah but they obviously designed it to force us into having to try different play-styles so I don't see them abandoning that. I mean they even made the CQC thing so annoyingly in-your-face to try to force people to use it - people have not "taken to it" but F D still have not removed the abortion aberration CQC ranking from the UI screen. So it doesn't matter what we say, if F D have made a decision it is very very rare for them to backtrack on it.

    Seems more likely that the construction companies lied about using compliant materials so as to reduce their costs and hence increase profits. It's not like the councils went down to B&Q and bought cheap stuff to fit themselves is it?
