Thread: Exploration subforum drinking game

    Exploration subforum drinking game

    Here's a drinking game for the exploration subforum. If you have any suggestions for new rules, by all means post them!

    Drink a shot of your drink of choice (default: tea) every time when:
    - a new explorer comes to the forum and says people who don't scan everything are lazy and/or not true explorers
    - a new explorer comes to the forum and says people who do scan everything are greedy
    - somebody says "true / real / pure" explorers
    - somebody says the Advanced Discovery Scanners are overpowered and/or people who use them are lazy
    - "bodies you've found but haven't directly scanned should be blank globes"
    - somebody says exploration was so much more actual exploration before X was changed, added or removed
    - a new update is coming and somebody says an upcoming feature or change is going to make exploration too easy
    - a new update is coming and somebody says that it has nothing for explorers
    - black holes aren't dangerous enough (and should have accretion disks, by the way)
    - somebody says they use economy mode for exploration (because that's cruelty-free)
    - "How far do I have to fly to find an untagged system?"
    - "How can an icy body have a hot surface temperature?" or "How can a planet be hotter than a star?"
    - "Was the Stellar Forge drunk?"
    - "What are those strange lights in the distance?" (Usually it turns out they are NGC 7822)
    - somebody says "pew pew crowd"
    - somebody says "RNGineers"
    - somebody asks what the best explorer ship and/or the best loadout is
    - jump range: "is the most important thing for exploration" / "does not matter for exploration"
    - fuel tank size: "should be high" / "should be as low as possible"
    - "explorers should / should not carry weapons"
    - somebody says that if they run across any Thargoids, they aim to run away as fast as possible
    - somebody finds cargo or human ships somewhere far away from the bubble
    - time to explain stuff about science!
    - somebody says they intend to circumnavigate the galaxy... someday
    - somebody claims that multicrew allows instant travel / allows you to teleport anywhere (it doesn't)
    - somebody asks what the minimum jump range to get to Beagle Point is

    hard mode: Drink an extra shot:
    - for every new Earth-like World found (WARNING: serious health hazard!)
    - when somebody starts a new expedition (drink to their success!)
    - when somebody says that exploration needs more love, work, and so on

    easy mode: Only drink when:
    - a Frontier Developments employee posts in the subforum


    Please be mindful of your health, and drink responsibly!

    I reached Elite a while back and I can tell you, I don't miss that "pew pew crowd" one bit. What I'm finding doesn't help is this darned RNGineers thing, annoying, eh? Although I can now fly a nicely armed and shielded Anaconda and still have a 35LY jump range. That SEPP, woss that all about then? And what a hero CMDR Frawd is for not going insane in that sidewinder! I'll be setting off for Jaques quite soon as I heard he's needing supplies - hopefully I'll return before the next Distant Worlds expedition begins. Maybe I'll even find some interesting canisters on these jaunts. And some nice Earth-like worlds!

    Liver? What's that?

    Updated the first post a bit, by adding some new stuff (with some thanks to Valije!) and removing the bit about SEPP in the Dangerous Games, since that's over.
    Does anyone else have ideas to add to this?

    I'd answer but I'm kinda sloshed now......

    EPIC POST, many laughs were had

    i think, somebody saying that exploration was so much more exploration before intermediate scanner/jumponium/routeplotting/new routeplotting etc. was ingame ... could make a nice additional role.

    Hehe, nice one! Added that and a similar common complaint - "[upcoming stuff] is going to make exploration too easy".
