Thread: Stuck inside a White Dwarf

  1. #16
    Just a moment ago I was in my Krait relocating for a haulage loop. It was just a short trek. About 140ly. Can't be bothered to do it with my T9. Anyway, usually I do moving in my exploasp, but I figured I'd take the Krait so I can fight on the way. I set my navigation on economical route through unvisited systems figurin I'd do some mapping. So I also fitted a planetary scanner which I've only had on the asp before.

    No problems at all but when I came across a white dwarf and only had 47ly left I figured I was done with mapping and would make the a last supercharged jump because it's always a hoot.
    Line up perfectly and head into the cone. Flung out before charged. Back again. Stay in. No charge and out. Again. No dice.
    Now I don't know how many times I did this unsuccessfully. I was gnashing teeth and wrenching stick, cursing the game and my ineptitude.
    Then I realised, no fuel scoop.
    Set navigation to fastest route and finished the silly trek in two jumps.
    Shameful, meaningless, non incident

    Yeah, I learned long ago that if I see a white glowy star on the jump screen, to spam the x button.
