Trust me, I almost know how that would feel. Almost. But what world was that btw?I bought an anaconda without having rebuy early in my pilot career. I proceeded to attempt to land on a high G world and kaboom. Lost the ship. I thought I could earn the money quickly enough that I wasn't really taking too much a risk.
No idea. It was ages ago. I always just fly around doing random things. It really sucked and it was very sudden and unexpected. I just remember it was dark and brown, I thought I'd land and go out on my srv.Trust me, I almost know how that would feel. Almost. But what world was that btw?
I fell asleep in sc.........
I've no idea what happened cept waking to a desktop. Once ingame rebuy
Single Malts a wonderful tonic
I use an Xbox controller, boost and LG require the use of the same button in default context, B. I don't know what's worse, the fact I've seen the back of the station smacking the front of my nose quite often, or the fact I haven't changed the combo since I started playing...
I did better than that. During the early days of DW2 we went to look at The View, which had a slightly high gravity. I was nervous but slowly approached and made it down with some minimal damage, which I planned to repair with repair limpets once I was off the planet. All was OK until I started to leave - someone mentioned having good thrusters to be able to take off and I thought I had better have a look at mine. As I looked at the panel, I think the glare of the nearby neutron star reflected off it and made the box next to thrusters appear empty. In full brain fart mode I thought "oh no, my thrusters are off!" and clicked to turn them on again! Of course they were on and what I actually did was turn them off - while taking off from the high-g planet! Next thing I knew I was plummeting back down to the planet's surface seconds before staring at the rebuy screen! There were numerous other commanders around at the time and the event did not go unnoticed as there is even some video footage of my pink anaconda crashing out there somewhere on the web.There was one time I couldn't figure out why my ship wouldn't take off from a planet surface. One forum thread later on I checked to discover the thrusters were turned off.
Yes, as I found out when I was out at Colonia and tried to charge at Magellan. It was only after several attempts that I thought "maybe I need a scoop?"Wait what, you need a fuel scoop to neutron jump?
Then I thought retrospectively what might happen if I had used the low gravity and my jet pack to jump on to the dorsal side (upper side.) of the Asp Scout and see how long I could surf or balance on the thing when that player launches.
This is my stupidity.....
Do you use Silent Running when you do that or is that just being stupid?After finishing NPC piracy runs, I tend to speed into the station using boost to get through the mailslot as fast as possible.
This works great for avoiding scans as I usually have 200 tons or more of stolen LTDs but I also have a tendency to stick the nose of the Corvette I use in the back of the station. You know those strut things around the bit that sticks out? The nose gets caught on those.
If you boost in through the slot, you'll likely get in before any scan has a chance to finish. Using Silent Running would leave you shieldless and take hull damage, which isn't good.
