PSA: Operation Montgomery Scott - Improving the Colonia Engineers!

I spent a couple of hours going round all of the engineers last night, then the Mat Traders, then the engineers again.

Sooner or later they'll all be tops :)

Anyone local selling 6A distribs - since the upgrade? Asking for a friend...

Short answer: No

Long answer: three of the four outfitting stations in Colonia are owned by Colonia Council, which is currently in the Boom economic state. Investment has been found in other systems in the region to increase the breadth of high-grade outfitting, but the faction doesn't tend to get there on its own just from passing traffic.

Improving the economic state of Colonia Council in Colonia to Investment would likely unlock further A-grade modules at the stations it controls, which might include the 6A distributor.
 
I've spent so much time visiting the engineers recently that I have a reserved space in all the ports, am on first names and drinks with all the controllers and that rumour about me and the lovely lady controller at Mel's is completely untrue, we are just good friends...

So, I'll have to become schizophrenic and support both The Nameless and Colonia Council?

It'll be tough, but it is for the good of all (particularly me :) )

Well, before taking the sidewinder back to bubble i went to Dove Enigma, which is controlled by Colonia Council, and sold whatever explo data i still had, that is about 2 millions cr, and also donated 1000000. Maybe it's a start in improving its economic state.

Btw, all this time i was in Open and seen exactly 2 Commanders, one docked and one docking.
 
Remove them.
Make all modifications not work due to some handwaving mechanic.
Presto - a special place where things work differently and better.
Now you can even enjoy PvP from the get go again - without doing overblown pointless busywork for useless overpowered crap.
 
Flew back home last night while watching Chernobyl.

So, what are we grinding?
Something to do with Union and expansion, but I'm not clear on that yet...
Doing 'stuff' for Colonia Council to improve the financial state and maybe get more A rated modules.
Or you could watch me getting soundly hammered by @Bigmaec outside of Robardin's Rock tomorrow night...

While I appreciate your view, I think that Engineering has also provided many good, useful, things - stuff that doesn't involve shooting at anything else.
Just consider, for a while, the good - not the time needed to collect materials, data and manufactured goods - it is there, if your bias is not so great :)

I mainly explore, 509,000 Ly so far - without engineered modules it would not have been quite so much fun - FSD, Shields, Scanners....
 
I'm planning a trip out there in the future to unlock those engineers for myself, Colonia is the only place to have both g5 life support and g4 shield cell banks which are both very helpful for different reasons.

What platform do you play?
Drop by Carcosa - Robardin Rock, and say 'hello' (and part with your explo data if you are wiling) it's a nice anarchy :)

Why schizophrenic? I thought we're friends or at least business partners. I earned some pretty penny by selling them weapons tonight, while grinding my rep with the Nameless.
And it seems that my dumping of exloration data at Jaques wasn't in vain, I see that Jaques Station, Colonia Orbital and Colonia Hub all have 6A Power Distributor in offer...

It no problem whatsoever. I've been working on Etienne ever since i posted here.
I was hoping on putting on a small guide for getting most of the materials needed for engineering so any pilots can engineer their ships and directly (or indirectly) improve the blueprints available right now.
 
I might have taken my 2nd account out but they need to have an unlock engineer over in Colonia.
Unlocking a bunch of bubble engineers is amateur hour once again by FDEV!
