Every time the third Heat Sink was used, selected Next Fire Group, working my way through all four. Usually had one or two left in case they were needed on the way out. I think doing the passenger rescue missions a couple of weeks ago helped as I knew what to expect and managed to keep a cool(ish!) head.
    Unlike Ed on today's lunchtime stream then!

    Exactly my process, even the same ship. I focused on Obsidian, got it down to a routine. After maintenance (and btw TY Cometborne for identifying the new locales!), Malthus presented more limpet-killing debris but let me finish off with a flourish. It was quite an experience.

    Aim was always to make 1% of the total contribution, and got there, so \o/ Good job everyone!

    Collected what he needed for rescue missions, faffed about, didn't listen to the fact he was overheating, then the cargo hatch failed and all the damaged escape pods fell back out into the heat!
