    I'm in too.

    Guess I should plan on swinging back by civilized space to fit one of these before heading out to Great Annihilator again.

    In light of this, I am probably not the best qualified to offer refuelling help
    Thank you for a nice story. I'll try to learn from your mistake (yeah, right, not going to happen).
    Anyway, 19 kylies, that is about 8 to 10 hours in an ASP without pushing too hard, so two evenings given that I have "permission" from "CINC** HOME". I would give that a go.

    It's a trap!

    (I know it's not, but that's what people tell me when I try to help them in game)

    Just had a thought based on my recent experience - anyone stranded needs to make sure they do not deplete their reserve tank - you need to open your cargo hatch to take on fuel, which requires power, and you need fuel for power.

    Good point, also not sure how the fuel drones will work, but you may need to be able to move to scoop them.

    Which is a thought.... you will be using fuel the whole time you are waiting, so what's to say you don't run out before someone can get to you?

    I am not in the beta but from what I have seen on twitch streams, the refueller 'targets' the recipient, so you just sit there with your hatch open.

    I am also interested how much weight the kit will take as you need controller modules and cargo space for the drones.

    Yes...although being logged out for the interim should solve that problem, although immersion breaking.

    Thanks!

    Add me too (Cmdr Skibbering).

    Though I'm just on my way back in, probably will be hanging around (un)civilised space for a while, unless I see the bat-signal.

    Count me in - happy to carry fuel

    For those who don't venture into open, a dedicated group would surely be possible. (Kind of like the DayZ rescue servers.)

    International Space Rescue! Great to see more non-kill-Kill-KILL roles!

    Next up, some Salvage or Repair roles, maybe even some construction?

    Correction, it seems you don't need to open the cargo hatch - so it may be possible to fuel a ship completely out of fuel - I am happy to test this with someone once 1.3 is released

    I thought you only use fuel in super-cruise, not in low-speed flight, is that incorrect?
