Stats and mistakes
41 jumps, 1219ly
1 obscured jump target, overshot and dropped out behind the outpost twice, searched 30s for the landing pad after getting lost at the very same outpost, 1 faceplant at a close binary, luckily only 10s cooldown. Total estimated time loss 160s
So, not only were you hilariously faster than anyone else, but you are telling us you had enough to pull it off throwing almost three minutes of shenanigans in it? Ok, that's enough, I'm done with Elite. Now excuse me, but I have a Peggle Nights to reinstall.
Curious fact: I had a previous Hauler run ending in a 1:23:something, done with an all-D loadout. I made my best one switching to an all-A, pretty much the opposite as you.
... navigation filters are of course your friend here. Filter on stations only, the instant you drop out of your last jump open left hand panel and your target station should be quick and easy to find and select from a nice short list.
Terrific, demanding race as ever, a bit special for me because it's were my "racing career" started six months ago (to think that I used to approach stations in a straight line at 0:07, thinking "damn that's pretty fast!")...let's just hope that for the Kessel III the regulation Cobra won't have to run on E-class fsd, E-1 scoop, no shields and running only on oxygen reserve
Thanks Stern Winter!
(my laptop had a corrupted OS and the hard drive was wiped when it was reinstalled, then it needed upgrading to Win10 again, so I only got to reinstall ED on it today...)
That's a real shame, even more so since it's completely superfluous to install the original o.s., THEN Win 10...you could have installed directly Win 10 from the start, if you had your laptop updated to 10 for more than one month it would have installed without needing a serial, activating itself by the hardware ID of your machine...and in any case, the latest release of the o.s. available from the official media creation tool would have recognized any Win 7+ serial and automagically upgraded it to a clean Win 10 install.
