    Question

    My first time playing an Elite game, so I was just wondering if it's possible to have more than one ship at a time. It'd really cool if I could get an Anaconda and a Viper at the same time! Thanks in advance for your response.

    You can own them at the same time but you can only fly one at a time.

    First time here

    Hello,
    Just started playing E today. I'm an 'Elitist' from the old, old days. I've got as far as the Advanced Combat Tutorial, using a mouse, and it's so much harder than it used to be!
    I completed the target practice tutorial, gave up on Basic Combat, as I always, always, ended up with no canopy and dying. At least in Advanced, I'm holding my own, but I cannot beat those Federation fighters. I don't feel safe to go out into the Galaxy just yet. Hell, I was Deadly - In The Old Days!

    One glitch - how do I fire my missiles? I've targetted one of the Feds, a great help when I can get him in the crosshairs of the Laser ( it aims itself! Never had that ITOD!) but no amount of key 'F' or 'M' fires one, yet from time to time they disappear from the rack.

    OK, enough complaining, back to practice! Watch out for Thargoids!

    John

    Avatars - I've posted my regulation two posts and been recognised as bonafide.
    I've looked at my Profile, and there is a space for an avatar - but no way I can see if posting one there.
    Do I have to play some more, get points etc. to get an avatar?

    PS Found it - thanks to forum search.
    Under Settings, not My Profile.

    travel to a far system

    Hello, I am trying to fly to an specific system that interest me for my game purposes, however its quite far (I expect I would need to refill fuel more than 5 times) from the system I started. Since not all the systems are connected is not that simple as saying ”keep flying in that direction” since I ended up hitting more and more dead ends, and because is that far I cannot plan a route either.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Than you

    Hey all, finally got around to picking up E.D yesterday. I cut my teeth on Wing Commander and the like as a kid but never played the original Elite games. I'm really looking forward to immersing myself in this world... Though I do wish there was a bit of a tutorial on the functions of the in flight computer and navigation systems as well as how to use the jump drives. Anyway, gorgeous game and quite fun when you get passed the slight learning curve.
