    Interdicted by federal Navy ship.

    Ok. So I just got back from a 1,000 ly exploration trip, headed to wolf 397 to the trophy camp, and suddenly I was notified by the federation Navy ship that I was being "interdicted under military rules of engagement." My first question is; what does that mean? My second question is; I am allied...

    Fed Rank progression slowing down by 50% - why?

    Hi all, I'm out at Ceos/Sothis doing the grind for a Corvette. I'm Elite ranked explorer and only broker trader, and so I found that the passenger missions to Sirius Atmospherics were more lucrative than running data/cargo trade between stations - going from Lieutenant Commander and Post...

    Fix the Federal Corvette

    The Federal Corvette needs a fix, and now is the time to do it. This sounds strange. The ship is big. The ship is shiney. The ship is incredibly popular to grind for. What could possibly be wrong? The game evolved, and the Corvette didn't. Bear with me, or skip to the TLDR at the bottom. The...

    Corvette large hardpoint useless?

    Okay so I got the Corvette yesterday after grinding out the rank and all that. I have it fully armed with 2 Class 2 beams, 2 Class 1 beams, 1 Class 3 MC, and 2 Class 4 MC's. But I'm seriously doubting the usefulness of the Class 3 MC because it's on the bottom of the ship, and I don't know what...

    CQC - Immersion/Overhaul?

    I've once posted this as a reply to a different post, but thought I'd add it here officially. I haven't gotten to play it much because of how sparsely populated the lobbies are, but I'm a big fan of CQC and believe it's got a lot more potential than people give it credit for. Without going...

    Hi all, I hope I'm posting in the right area for this, I don't use forums in general much. I took out my first mission that involved landing on a planet and deploying the SRV.

    Whats the laziest ship to use for staying in CNB's for an hour or so to bounty hunt?

    I looked at a bunch of threads why Python overheats for no apparent reason, which gave me some clues, but some questions remained unanswered... (I haven't played since reputation decay got added to the game. 1.4, I think?) Issue: fighting a single Cobra for 1 minute in a CNB (pretty close to...

    Ships Viability (and fun) of a stealth/sniper ship?

    One thing that I'm somewhat disappointed in with Elite is that there isn't any deeper stealth mechanics in spaceflight. There have been some great books that cover this; Cloak of War is the most recent one I've read that handles stealth SPECTACULARLY in space. I recently got my end-game goal...

    A Hypnotic Twilight (Flight Assist Off)

    After a few months away from the game, I decide that the best way to knock off the rust is with some canyon flying, FAO, external camera action. This approach was only somewhat effective... but made for a relaxing flight either way. Apologies for the few random "signal loss" faded camera...
