Wow. The OP almost perfectly describes my situation. Thanks for this thread.
You don't need that help. All you need is to outfit your ship with a Point Defense module and park the ship (medium or small) close to the structure. The Point Defense modules 4000 amo will take out all the sentinel missiles for hours. I makes the guardian unlocking a ton easier!I even have a mate who offered to help with dumbfire cover so that is quite high on the list, thanks.
I keep dozing off in supercruise and waking up at 1000C 60kls from where I was going. What's really funny about htat is that it's faster to jump to another system and back again than it is to turn around and doze off again.Now days every time i open elite i close it after couple jumps or after stupid missions. There is no point to spend time on just playing non gameplay sc and traveling or try to play around the issues with missions.
Grinding isn't problem for me, trust me. Just doing anything in elite is just boring and every location looking 99.9% like any other location isn't helping.
I still enjoy running around in arma 2 dayz mod, in that you actively do something while traveling, in elite you don't.
Ha, and I just linked this thread in that one. Great minds and all that.On a similar note, a commander returning to ED after a long absence is finding that there's a lot to see and do and also has an ever growing todo list. Writing up his adventures with a bit of roleplay seems to provide a good source of inspiration.
As for adding more suggestions to your list ... looks like you have enough to be getting on with for now! [haha]
I occasionally do skimmer missions this way, too, good tip.As for Guardian unlocks, you can zoom around in your SRV, make all the sentinels appear, then go back to your ship and use your ship-weaponry to wipe the sentinels out. Then redeploy the SRV and collect the materials.
.You kinda have a point in there. Not having played since 2.1 and seeing more content grind piling up isn't really much incentive to revisit.
