Thread: Out of Fuel? - Explorer Rescue Service, The Fuel Rats

  1. #31
    As an explorer who has done the 5 jump , nothing but brown dwarf main star..... i applaud the valiant men/women who will risk their lives/ships/time to rescue me from my own stupidity......

    Gimmie a chance to make my own mark... and i'll join you guys safeguarding explorers

    To be honest I kind of posted in a querying not stating manner... curious to know for sure myself.

    Good point! Sign me up as well.

    No, your Power Plant uses fuel, so any power at all e.g. Life Support will drain fuel.

    You don't use fuel when you're not logged in though. So if you were waiting for fuel then you'd have to log out, post your SOS and wait for your valiant hero to be in the right system before you log back in.

    I'd also be happy to take fuel to anyone in my vicinity if I'm in a ship with drones, which I may or may not be depending on whether I head back out before 1.3 drops. I'll even log into Open to meet someone. (IGN: CMDR Cruento Mucrone)

    Awesome idea!

    I'll help once I grind enough CRs to get a decent ship (in a Hauler now which I admit, after so much exploration in it, I'm becoming rather fond of).

    By the way, sign me up for urban space as well...after this expedition I will take a break and do a lot of exploring in civilization... if I'm around, wouldn't mind helping!!!

    Also, how are we going to get paid?? hmm..at what point are we going to rip off our unfortunate customers??

    Remember people, this is not just "United Nations coming to rescue you!" Or the army!..is more "Oh darn, call these people who will rip me off for a can of fuel!"

    ----

    If out in the open, you would be forced now to come back and pay me us in palladium or whatever the most expensive commodity is after PP.

    Otherwise, how are we going to guarantee payment?

    If the player goes Solo, or "missing" after refueling, then there should be also a Board of Shame in this thread with their names, so we all know and will hunt said person, KOS type of deal.

    I dunno...suggestions only.

    That would probably be breaking the "name and shame" rule of the forum. A list of known "credit worthy" commanders might be allowed, though I really hope noone would need help twice.

    I was wondering how the fact you start in solo and have to jump to enter open would effect you if you logged out or disconnected?

    Anyone fancy testing this?bim happy to try in beta6. It may mean if you log you can't be rescued? You may have to remain logged in for any chance.

    So I'm not alone in the galaxy in loving my Hauler. I like you.

    Picking my way back from Sgr A* right now, once I get back into the bubble, I might give the old girl a break and upgrade to a larger ship, kitting that out to be a fuel tanker could be interesting. We'll see once I'm back at Sol sipping a beer.

    I can see the first person to request the service being drowned in fuel

    hmm, you don't stay logged in until the fuel rat is close?

    Here's the ship to use for the further out jobs:



    Its just a fuel tank
    with a cockpit and some thrusters bolted on.
