Last time I tried to fly to Colonia a month or so ago I gave up after like 3500 LY.@Falter thanks for the advice, that's exactly what I did, bit of fine tuning always helps.
I do quite like having the SLF - I regard it as another hardpoint that hits more frequently - but I know it can cause lag so I dropped it
I didn't look you u up as I'm based in Colonia, but if you ever come this way drop by Carcosa
Hopefully you never had to deal with the quality of laptop I used to have.Sounds excellent! Now I'm jealous running my old laptop, oh well, I'll try to take my frustrations out on those CL76 guys while you bask in superior graphics!
Thinking about it... now might be a chance to win a fight if your muscle memory from your old rig leads to a mistake or two!
I've been flying my FGS for about 3 years. I started playing this game in 2015. After forcing myself to learn how to fly full FAoff in the first 3 months of the game without any outside instruction, I'd say I'm probably the most influential, knowledgeable and skilled FGS pilot to date. There have been a few to try to emulate me or use my FGS build in a more....well, similar fashion or different matter, but I've found even those players have fallen back into common mistakes made by novice FGS pilots.@Falter its surprising the game does run on surprisingly low end kit. I've got a Lenovo Y700 with a GTX 950M graphics chip and while I have dialed down the graphics a bit it still runs smoothly.
Watching your video the one thing I do notice is the flight model of your FGS does appear to be rather smoother, more effective and notably better at aiming than my FGS is!
I had been using my Krait or Challenger or Mamba quite a bit recently but this forum got me back into my FGS some more. Always a good thing!
My two most important modules are my sensors and power distributor.Can I see you on my sensors?
If yes, then I can most definitely shoot you.
I'm still only moderately decent with hitscan though. But, that's because I favor my plasma weaponry as my "main battery.""You're so short you cant' see over the dashboard"
"I'd still be able to shoot you regardless, wearing a blindfold, and with only my keyboard's incremental keybinds at my disposal."
Depends on the budget. Rift 2 over Vive but Vive Pro over Rift S in my opinion. The HP reverb is also worth the price if you're just using it for Elite.Oh dear, my new rig is there. Just installing E: D. Still no VR, as I'm yet undecided if I want a Rift or Vive.
But oh boy, this will be good
I'm glad I could be of some assistance then. It's so rare to meet people in this game who actually have a modicum of common sense, kindness and the like.
The solution is to buy more ARX, commander.Seems like my hiatus is over.
Fired up Elite for the first time since october and had some nice fights with mant3z and Yoshi-Ysh, forgot to record though. GF, CMDRs, thx.
Got my Arx kicked thrice, timing, reflexes, muscle memory all reset sigh
But the fun with Elite is back
Those frag Mambas are awesome.Man, if if wasn't for the fact that all my other buddies are new players (meaning I really need to hang around at least reasonably close to the bubble, most of my squadron are still finding their feet in the game) I'd go out and roll a few frags just to get those levels up.
Still wanna find some folks to cause trouble with back in the Inner Orion
Thanks m8, we had great fun in Colonia with you guys. Best regards to your team and also to cmdr OneFootIn.
Right, your two mates had the Mambas, yours was the Chally. My mistakeThanks m8, we had great fun in Colonia with you guys. Best regards to your team and also to cmdr OneFootIn.
To clarify I was in legendary Chally
CU in the bubble
Nah, they are double shot G5'd ^^Didnt realise this thread was still going lol, always good to catch up with the Carcosa chaps when i'm in the area. As for those frags only being g3 modded, thats a bit scary lol
