    I was getting chain interdicted with no cargo, no missions and no powerplay by the way. This is some time ago, maybe 6 months. It stopped me playing the game. I've rarely had any interdictions on returning to the game, except of course when on a mission or hauling. As soon as I returned I cleared all the old fines and stuff so that's why I was thinking this could have been the reason. back then there was no way to see what fines you had, etc.

    Well that's not quite true is it? Just as an example, yesterday I was wandering across part of the bubble in my exploration equipped AspX, heading for the black: no missions, no cargo, no powerpants, no bounties (or fines or whatever outstanding) and en-route I had three NPC pirate interdictions all with the "so the rumour was right, glad I found you first". So they do still interdict just out of a psychopathic need to kill, instilled in them by the MoM.

    Hmmmm! I've never had that! Are you sure you didn't have a bounty on you for something somewhere? Those "rumour" ones are normally from missions.

    One other thing: You get the occasional interdiction for a security scan from the Feds, but they don't shoot you unless you're a bad guy.

    They don't go after limpets anymore. Neither do they go after engineer's materials or data.

    ..................
    I go through spates of being interdicted every few h-jumps and then nothing for ages. I have no unpaid fines, bounties or anything else. (I am sure of this as after the last CG finished I went to a factor to try one out and cashed in a remote bounty credit, there were no other options - plus I do make sure that any fines I get are paid off right away as I was convinced they turned into bounties.)

    Yes the rumour ones are usually / normally for mission-related ones but I had no missions and no cargo so I suppose they just send whatever text is to hand.

    I did get one military interdiction on the same trip too (civil war in the system I think) but I never mentioned that as it was not germane.

    When (in my first account) I did my very first venture of a (mini) exploration trip not long after I had got my first Asp (over 18 months ago I suppose) I was interdicted by a pirate NPC many hundreds of Ly from civilization but I suppose that has been fixed as I am several KLy out and not seen owt (not even an alien). (EDIT - Touch wood!)

    There was a similar debate in this more recent reddit post (with a cruder flowchart) although no definitive answer: https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDanger...a_handy_chart/

    Maybe a moot point now as it's much easier to pay off any fines for minor offences before the 7 day timer expires with Interstellar Contacts.

    EDIT: Note to self RTFM. From page 42 of https://d1wv0x2frmpnh.cloudfront.net...eGuardians.pdf referring to the Transactions tab (with a similar comment on page 112):
    Fines: Any active fines will be listed as an entry on this tab. Each fine will display the total amount owed and the system in which the fines must be paid, along with an expiry timer, (after which the fine will be converted into a bounty against you).

    So, conclusion is that there should be a bounty on me (since i have not paid the fine in time) and I have to go to an some remote system that has interstellar contacts to get rid of it...

    You don't have to do anything. That's the point of sandbox (one of)
    Plus if you have real bounty on your head, only death can help you (under some very specific circumstances)
    If you have an outstanding fine AND want to get rid of it, then yes, you can either go to where you had that fine issued, or to the closest anarchy system and look for the contact.

    True: i don't HAVE TO play the game, then again if i WANT TO play the game, I have to get rid of my bounty somehow, or pay 5 million credits or more for having my ship shot to pieces. That's the whole point of me asking how to do that. Thought I figured this out, but now you are telline me that I should buy that sidewinder and blow myself up to clear the bounty?

    You should already know this. You can only pay off fines. You can't pay off an active bounty.
    If you want to get rid of the bounty, you have only two options:
    1) Let the timer run out (It's usually just a week or less) then it'll turn into a fine and you can pay it off.
    2) Let another player scan you with KWS, then kill you and claim your bounty. That is the only way to get rid of it completely. If you just went and died, it won't disappear but only turns into a dormant bounty. As soon as you are scanned by police, next time, the dormant bounty is re-activated with full timer, so you won't get anywhere.

    Sorry, I really don't understand. I got a fine and did not pay it off... so now i am thinking I got a bounty, but i can not see it anywhere (that was the start of this discussion). There was noit a week extra in which I could pay of this bounty, or is there just nothing? The fine just got away? That also not seems logical?

    If you haven't played in over a week there is a strong possibility that anything outstanding will have turned into a fine . If you need to know what fines are outstanding , go to a low security or anarchy system , dock in a space station and got to contacts , there will be a person there who will be able to list all of your outstanding fines (universal factors or something similar). You can then if you wish , pay all of your fines , from wherever you got them .
    So what is the speed of dark ?

    There we have the problem: you're flying to big a ship. Maybe try something smaller, then it doesn't hurt if you get shot... again. And you wont get stuck in the mail slot so often. For further reference I recommend this reading: You-don-t-need-an-Anaconda-to-enjoy-the-game
