Nearest with a ship yard is New Growth in Pencil Sector EL-Y d5 at 420 ly distance ...It's not THAT far out of the bubble (420ly to nearest station). But yeah, I suppose you need some kind of jumping / scooping capability. Look at it as a challenge for outfitting!
OK Can't figure out twitch at short notice but I shall record it - will stick it up on Youtube later..Speed run will start around 8pm game time
Cmdr over and out
4.6k In An ASP ? Nice work cmdr ! You'll be able to hit 5000+ if you lose some of that fuel I reckon !So with excitement and my heart beating I arrived at the co-ords to attempt my second run.
Ship: USS Janeway
Type: Asp Explorer
Relevant Engineering: 4A Thrusters with G3 Dirty Drive Tuning.
It's quite obvious that all the pitching, FA juggling and adding vertical thrust somehow messes up the physics in Elite. But finding the right balance is what makes it fun, and I hope they don't "fix" this.this has nothing to do with planet’s rotation.
Wow Martin I didn't see your thread, excellent.To the OP — great idea, I like it
To those trying to figure it out, here’s a thread I made 2 years ago about something similar I did at another high-g planet, with a video. The basic technique is to set throttle to full and find the angle at which your ship will keep accelerating fastest. The angle will change as your ship’s speed increases.
We should probably add a second event for those in the bubble at Achenar 3 - Fancy getting that one organised for the speed merchants who need a station nearby ?
