    This is very good point. First; be very comfortable with your re-buy costs, so you can relax. Second; watch just how predictable the idiots become. Third; always have an exit strategy. Fourth; when you learn how to play in open, just how much fun it can be and how friendly, most of the locals are.

    My non engineered clippers fairs OK in open CGs running cargo and hit the top 25%. Yes I have been down to under 30% as I have parked, but that was on the fourth day and there were a lot of idiots about. The mail slot got so bad, with empty squares at one point, I had to let the DC take over, just before entering, instead of after entering as normal. It don't matter how many ships die if the DC is in control. :D

    So let me get this right - The Braben makes a tweetie thingie saying that 1 million copies of Planet Coaster and 2.75 million of Elite Dangerous have been sold and people on here are now saying - "what a load of things in scrotums, he is lying, he is counting all the paintjobs, Elite is DOOMED, F D are lying swindling toe-rags". Or have I read things wrong? purleasssssseeeeeeeeeeee ... :rolleyes:

    I keep mine on a NAS - it means as well as my computers, my entertainment systems can access them using their music player - so internet radios, AVReceiver etc all have the music collection available.

    I don't do powerpants, only ever did one stint to help an online mate out, never again. There are sections in the manual and in the fora all about powerplay (and reams of stuff on reddit and 3rd party websites). Basically it boils down to areas that are under influence of a "power" produce a certain amount of "income" per period, maintaining those areas requires expending some of that income (and any "reserves"), seeking to extend your influence costs some of the income and if you want to expand into another "power's" area you need to expend some of your readies in "undermining" there. Conversely you might want to prevent another power from "undermining" you in a system and so you have to shell-out to "fortify". Of course all this happens in the background simulation, you as a player don't do those things, all you do if you are pledged to a power is carry out tasks made available to put in effect the strategies the "power" wants to follow - these can be simple as carrying propaganda to target systems...

    My stupid tip is when jumping between group & open to see if mission board updates (not stacking just looking fo 'a' mission) you forget your in 'open' and you get killed. Remember where your at ... LOL CHIEF

    I have this problem and still have no solution. I mapped 75% speed to a key and it worked for awhile then suddenly stopped working. Tried a different key and that wouldn't work period. So I fly manually, hands on, all the time now where I use to set and sit. I'll be watching to see if you get a solution. Please post if you do. An added note here is that on my Horus setup, Saiteck X52 Pro, I had added this, the 75% to a button and it worked fine for awhile then it stopped. I also lost my boost, which is a stock setting from Frontier, for awhile then it came back. I would say it was my equipment but both? At the same time? Chief

    I was wondering if there were any iPad apps in development by anyone? I would kill my granny's old babysitter for a Cartographics app, where we can actually pull up the game's Galaxy and System maps on our tablet. Any chance of something other than the "E D Wikia" becoming available from you whizz kid developers?

    I do love good sarcasm .... as for the movie Wing Commander, it's been awhile since I saw it but I believe it too was a box office flop. You know Behemion figured this out in ArmA 3 a long time ago and produced a superb game in ArmA 3. And in far less time unless I'm mistaken. Chief

    yes I don't know how much you will get but yes you can do a level 2 (non-DSS) or level 3 (DSS) scan of a previously "honked" (level 1 scan) system which you sold the data for.

    Nah, the point is there wasn't a conversation just someone not listening and making faces. ;) I stuck on ignore to prevent me from responding any more, took them off this morning and see that they must have done summat else to get banned (nowt to do with me). Anyway, I only came back to the thread to reiterate my own feelings regarding people wanting more of a challenge from the NPCs - it's easy to get that just fly in a ship with no "Engineering" at all. If one is such an amazingly skilled whizz-kid that a wing of three Elite Anacondas or Vultures are like shooting fish in a barrel then they should take them on in an un-engineered ship and stick up the videos to dazzle us all with their skill.

    Thanks. That is the basic plan at the moment: Stop the jump; '0' throttle and pips to engines and jump out off normal space.

    Still a result; well done. I always use the closest system to jump to; set and ready to go. I always fit top spec life support and sensors; both worth their cost, in time gained.

    Are there any 'rules or guarantees of out come'. if you attempt to jump during the blue circle game? It used to be, falling into the next star was going to be the out come. So is there possibility to hit the jump button, just before, or during the blue circle game and succeed?

    I guess I get bored with repeating myself, after offering the same advice to the new guys. There are only so many ways you can say; take care out there. Maybe I should put together a blog or something; but then there are some really good advisers around here, some with 100 times more experience and know how, than I have and so, I just don't seem worthy, I suppose. Plus I am a lazy old dog and all that cut and pasting, would be more mind numbing than mining?
