    Interesting... I have always suspected it works something like this, but never put int he time to try and figure it out. I've always noticed that certain types of systems come in "batches" a lot of the time. there is an area in Ceeckia that I call the Ceeckia Ammonia Zone. On my first trip to that area, I found a region that just non stop spot Ammonia worlds out at me.. I noticed this with ELW's and WW/HMC TFC's also. Whilst selling my data after my first big trip, I noticed specific regions that constantly paid out large chunks of cash for all the systems in them. I'm glad someone has figured it out, I'll be paying more attention to this from now on... Z...

    Learn to scoop properly. Point the nose just above/below the green exclusion zone (opposite side to where the star is), honk whilst doing this, then set throttle to whatever works for the ship you fly. If you plan to scan the star, pull the throttles back to zero when the countdown to the jump starts, so you are already at 0 when you pop in. Much safer. Having said all that, I agree, and wish the controls would react while the map is loading. More than once it took too long for some reason, all the while I watched helplessly as my ship went straight into the exclusion zone. This was during my early days, of course, but the lack of control during these loading screens is *very* annoying, and has contributed to many a CMDR's downfall... Z...

    If you don't want to overclock at all, skip the K chips, and skip the Z boards in favour of cheaper models that don't offer overclocking. No point paying for an unlocked chip/chipset that you aren't going to push. That will also help in terms of saving some cash. Don't skimp on the cooler. Noctua make excellent air coolers that are quiet. They are by no means the only one, but I find them to be at the top of the heap, and easy enough to get hold of where I am - their fans are excellent. Also, consider assembling the PC yourself, lots of "how to" guides on the net, and it is pretty easy. You're not likely to ruin anything, especially if you pay attention to the guides. I'm sure you could also find someone that would help you out for a beer, I know I'd help someone learn to build for one. It's very satisfying, and a worthwhile skill. Your call though. If you can build a small lego kit, you can build a PC. As a rift owner, I agree with the Vive, in terms of tracking at the very least. Room scale with...

    How much you got to blow? How soon? It's getting to the stage where the 10xx line is nearing the end of it's life, if you've already got a rig, I'd seriously consider holding out now, especially as there are some new VR headsets on the way too, the Pimax 8k thing being of particular interest. Otherwise, I'm not sure how warranty works where you are, but here in Aus, it's transferrable, so if I were to buy an 8700(K)/Z370, I'd probably by my GPU second hand, and save some cash. Edit - just saw the limit - which currency/country? For the record, I'm running two rigs. Specs are near identicaln - i7 6700K, Asus Gene VIII, 16GB Ram, Corsair Carbide Air 240 case with Noctua NH9L coolers and Noctua fans for the case. The differences are: GTX1080 and GTX1080Ti

    hat Wow, that's a sweet set up - dual stick is something I've been thinking about - but kinda really enjoy having the throttle. Having said that, I suspect dual stick is *much* better for fine control for combat and high speed canyon racing type stuff. Plenty of buttons to bind, too... Curiosity may tempt me in the end...

    Thanks for the advice! It looks like it might be something that some people have seen before, though if it is it only occurs intermittently. As I said, the site at Eol Prou QX-T d3-0 2ca 20.93/-11.44 does exist - I visited it this afternoon on the family desktop and it was only a couple of hours later on my laptop that it was a no-show. I got a couple of good screenshots of that site from the desktop so I'll see about uploading one or two for reference. The Eol Prou LW-L c8-211 system I forgot has been renamed to Centralis, so I can confirm that site exists also - it just happened to be inactive when I was there. I am not able to confirm the site at Eol Prou LW-L c8-324 3ba 13.39/138.746 but I see that is not on FalconFly's list, so next time I go back there I'll check the other site on that moon. . During my recent explorations on the borders of the permit-locked regions at NGC 2286, Bovomit, Sidgoir and Froadik, I have encountered numerous worlds with suitable conditions for volcanism and organics....

    Today I tried to visit several known geyser and fumarole locations near Colonia because I've not had any success at all in finding sites, ever. I encountered problems and wondered if anyone here has seen anything similar. . First I used the family desktop and quickly found the site at Eol Prou QX-T d3-0 2ca lat: 20.93 long: -11.44. This was helpful, as now I knew what one looked like, both from my ship and from my SRV. I was surprised the tiny blue circle POI was so similar to others I have previously seen but not been able to trace but it was enough for me to home in on it and it was active and clearly visible from several km away - very clear once above it. So far, so good. . Most of the time I play on my laptop, however, so I next visited the site at Eol Prou LW-L c8-211 A6c lat: -3.89 long: -151.14 using my laptop. If I had not known it was there, there was no way I would ever have noticed it. It was not active but there was a blue circle. I used my GU-97 fighter to get close and the fumaroles were...

    Can't argue with this. The only reason to not do this is to make Xbox controllers more "equal" by effectively nerfing the potential of KBM/HOTAS. This is a terrible way to treat PC gamers though.

    I agree that they should be challenging, and I'm not worried about it getting too easy since I'm sure Frontier will just notch up the difficult with each new tool we get, just as they've already done. As for the wakes, you should read the descriptions on the materials you can collect from Thargoid corpses. ;)

    OP, I suspect the clunkiness lies between the chair and the desk. Sure it would be great if the device had a fire group, but it's WAY easier to use than an ECM. An ECM requires precise timing and counters a fast attack. The anti-EMP only requires charging. It's dead easy to use because the Thargoid EMPs are very predictable.

    This is the exact reason high money earning methods are nerfed. More than once Frontier have said they reduce certain methods to make them all equal, as they want to give people "choice". After Rhea, Frontier stated they didn't want people gravitating towards the easier method and ignoring other ones. So yes, Frontier do understand this - but for some reason the same logic is not being applied to the community goals.

    Would LOVE to be able to fly an untethered SLF! Especially if we could engineer it a little. Not much, just enough to make it a little more durable and with better power distribution. Maybe get some experimental effects like corrosion, concordant sequence, etc. Maybe limit it to having only Super Cruise, so it requires a carrier ship in the system, or ship transfers to move around the galaxy.
