Ruins aside, one of the things I've done is to fly from one planet to another without supercruise. I like that the game is able to handle that.
Works with any ship and anything collectible.You can target mission items from quite a distance and scoop them up with your ship. Not sure if it works with bigger ships or normal cargo canisters. Non-mission items need you to get much closer, almost poking your nose on them, but it works.
Pro-tip: Best ships for it are the "short & wide" ships (Sidey, Cobra, Viper) cos you retain a useful degree of pitch without bumping the nose/tail on the ground.
It's possible with longer ships (or any ship) but you have to be much more precise about your angle of pitch as you move in to scoop.
I've also tried it with an Eagle, DBX and an iCourier and it was possible but fiddlier.
I also tried it with an Anaconda but, erm, we don't talk about that anymore.
Here's me tying it in my starter Sidey:-
And here's my Viper 3 earning it's living:-
Everything Stealthie said. At the start of the year the BRC even hosted a small event centered around this "technique". Some fun times.Haha, never knew this was possible!
Very nice. And well seen. Happy new year ! CommanderCommander's log: New Year's Eve 3303; I'm starting to think that guy who told me there was an excellent bar in the Crab Nebula might have been pulling my leg.
Well this was unexpected. Seems a bit quiet but they say it livens up later on, let's just hope the Thargoids don't crash the party! Happy New Year Commanders.
WOW - stunning selection!
Trinity, is that golden wireframe good for photoshooting? I got chromed version and have been thinking that golder version also. I am just afraid that in space shots black is all you see.
