    I'm at around 4k and in the 25% I think I'll get to around 10k and head over to help out the professor if I can find the will power , I find delivery cg's get really boring but see it as necessary for the long term.

    I buildt up my fleet to twenty three ships and engineered them as much as I saw needed. Got enough money for a boatload of rebuys and the eventual Type 10 defender that might or might not pass by. I'm ready as I'll ever be.

    I've got the Cutter as well and don't mind that I did the grind, it looks good imo. I hardly ever fly it though, it's so incredibly cumbersome, even with G5 dd. Sometimes I take it out purely because I put so much time and money in it, no other reason. The Corvette is completely different though, besides the poor jumprange it's quite versatile, lots of module slots to play with but above all it flies beautiful for it's size. The Corvette is absolutely worth the time and money to get it imho.

    I'm preparing by buying some coffee : A LOT ! Because we'll need to change so much things in our ships in order to be able to fight them : weapons, scanners, sort of IEM, etc. So i'm going to build an exclusive ship for this i guess... (which one ??). Then coffee ! xD

    Mine had around 25 I believe. Only 17 fully combat fit, though. (full armor packs, lots of weight) I still flew the thing all over the galaxy, though. I'm quite used to long trips. I had a habit of always needing to be somewhere on the opposite side of the bubble. I was also often trecking from Diaguandri to Maia in it for various reasons. It's a decent fly in the black. I don't recommend the T-9, though, lol. Took that out to Cali and back.

    I can attest. I only had 3,000MJ of shielding, (only had rank 3 mods on the shield boosters) and I would still forego chaff, because NPCs were basically flies. It was also fun flying two fixed A4 Beams. It was like a magnifying glass against ants. Also, 3 size 7 internals. Dat shield cell power.

    Call it naivety, ignorance, or perhaps regional differences, but I was unaware of the connotations that would follow "ring" around here. I was confused for a time.

    How about waiting the two days until 2.4 releases? Then you might have some actual gameplay to criticise instead of blowing raspberries.

    Currently I'm flitting between my asp x and my cutter. Havnt had chance to take most of what I've bought for a test flight yet. Thinking of taking one of the passenger vessels out next and trying to grind fed rank. God my python (sardonic rogue) always used to be my go to ship. It's currently collecting mothballs right now though. Keep thinking about going back to it.........

    no. Just a comment about the frequency of the real life events. I have no knowledge of the workings of Stellar Forge, which produces the ED galaxy.

    @OP Find some information about the frequency of occurance and timescale of these events, then consider that the ED galaxy is less than 3 years old. A quick search has found this reference: So on average about 1 every 2+ years.

    I agree with the opinion that there's so much more potential to our current galaxy, so much more that can be done......but! It amazes me every time when I'm out exploring that our whole galaxy, 400 billion stars, is working to a certain degree. Planets are in moving orbit around their suns, suns move around eachother, moons are in obit around their planets and a lot of bodies rotate around their axis, and all this in real time. When I'm trolling around on a moon by daylight, log off and come back a couple hours later, I find myself on the dark side all of a sudden. To cool in my opinion. Not seeing Novas or moons crashing is the least of things I miss, comets etc. or more stuff on planets/moons to discover and the tools to do so, that's what I miss.

    Dutchman141 replied to a thread Weekly store update. in Xbox One
    I agree with Fray that every vanity item costs money, which is a pitty. Imho there should be some standard customization options within the game for free, for anyone to use, the military, vibrant and tactical paints for example. More exclusive and or complex items could then be purchased when desired. There are enough games using that system and it works. It is what it is though and I don't realy have a problem with it, at least it's just vanity and not gameplay effecting stuff. As soon as FD introduce gameplay effecting items I stop playing, no more WoT situations in my life, ever.

    I'll up the ante with 10. The Corvette is a fun and very powerful ship, you clean out a HazRes in no time without loosing even half your shields, perfect for me and my uncontrolled combat style. The medium ships are waaay more fun though, Gunship, FDL, FAS, etc. Corvette in pve is a very relaxing ship imho. I still need to up my Courier's thrusters to G5 dd, what speed should I get out of it?

  1. Hey dusty, I was told to contact you concerning Xbox one and the current CG in Colonia. I'm planning to head out today and I'm really light on Galactic Travel guides, no one seems to be in the area to help load up and some suggested that you may be able and willing. I'd prolly be on between 8-8:30PM EST. thanks either way

    Why lock my post about an article. And why would I continue talking about a completely seperate topic in the event thread? I wanted to talk about the article I linked. Not the failed event. Just because the article was about the event?

    I don't think you should have locked that thread where the guy lost his Annie. There are some aspects of the game that are very harsh, and I think these should be discussed so the devs know of these issues. The tough luck attitude and the lack of any ability to recover from such a mistake, short of starting over, costs the game players. I don't blame him one bit for quitting and there should be some way to recover without basically completely starting over.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Hi matenot sure why you locked my thread re multicrew

    The thread you linked is completely different to my issue and I was asking if what I was experiencing was a bug before reporting it as such

    Did you read my post ?

    Hey. Just wanted to say something about the power/damage of NPCs. Put simply, it just isn't fair that NPC weapons are FAR more powerful than anything we could hope to own. I know that the AI of NPCs has been increased but these changes shouldn't effect the damage output. I got interdicted in my Asp Explorer (don't know by who - I didn't hang around to find out). I had a 6D Shield Generator and x3 A class Shield Boosters. In just x1 shot my Shield Generator was 100% destroyed. To be clear - my shields were at 100% strength. I don't know of any weapon that can take down a shield from 100% strength AND 100% destroy the Shield Generator with a single shot. To be extra clear - I wasn't having a power problem,ie the shields didn't fail because I deployed my hardpoints or anything like that. Today, a Sidewinder and an Eagle had my shields stripped in seconds - I didn't even have time to get a shot off. I'm a good combateer and Icertainly can't get anyones shields down that fast. The reality is - it's not just the AI that's too high but it's the damage output from the NPCs too.
    Looking forward to your reply - thank.

    Hi Dusty, how are you? maybe it's tiredness or alcohol, but couldn't gauge the tone of your reply when I asked to close the thread

    I didn't mean to sound demanding or anything like that, new to the forum thing and using them, thought that was a done thing?? Or don't do it??
