Sometimes a government needs to move things along, and you can't make an omelet without cracking a few eggs. If you want to avoid bounties in general, probably best to avoid accepting contracts to murder people.
Perhaps you meant to reply to (and quote) the person I replied to? I was merely discussing Planetary Scan missions and their problems. The only assassination missions I ever take are against pirates (and that was the case even before the new C&P; nowadays it's hard to imagine ANY missions that risk picking up a bounty ANYWHERE as being worthwhile, in either credits or hassle. I don't even glance at them anymore -- they're wasted space on the mission board.

Skimmer missions suck now, FD. Please revert the changes. All you had to do was lower the payments. The SRV is a piece of .
It's sadly laughable that in a universe where our turreted weapons track well enough to hit a moving target several kilometers away while our own ship in maneuvering in multiple planes, the SRV's turret in 3304 literally has poorer stability than a 1970s-era tank, and can't even stay on target on a stationary rock while the vehicle is moving at a crawl. I'd just LOVE to see the design explanation for that (if it's anything other than "because everything should be harder than it has to be")...

That's the price we pay for having the "exploits nerfed." Or rather, "the game play that pays a little bit too much, and is a bit too easy to do, is totally hammered beyond recognition." :( I loved the skimmer missions. Hearing what's happened to it, I'm not sure I even want to try again. Bummer...
I'm beginning to think that I missed something about skimmer mission payouts that made them so compelling to you. I looked at them as likely to take 30-60 minutes per mission, and without duplicate (stacking) payouts (the way it apparently was before I began playing, back when you could execute one action and satisfy multiple missions) -- none of them seemed like particularly rewarding payouts. Even skimmer missions paying 4-7M CR didn't look THAT compelling to me if they took 20-30 minutes or so to complete. Wonder what I missed!?

Anything that doesn't incur notoriety is totally doable. Even if something does incur notoriety, you just make sure to take a crime ship that you don't mind leaving hot for a while until your status cools off.
 
Wait....

"Fixed an issue where players were sometimes unable to rebuy their ship after disconnecting when dying"

Fixed a bug for combat loggers??? Am i reading it correctly?

Yes, I am constantly picking up minor bounties from scanning, but its such a doddle to pay them off that it hardly seems worth the worry. Hence why I want bounties to be higher, & for IF to charge a 25% fee. After all, IF are not a charity.

Zheesh, if EVER there were a function that deserved the ol' "That's not a bug, that's a feature!" quip, I can't think of it!

Tie that "feature" to a high notoriety and THEN you'd have a C&P system! ;-)
 
Ok it does seem that the Developers have a hidden agenda.

They do not like people making Credits fast. Also to make the Engineering Grind a Real Hard Grind at times.

But what Does upset me is the BUGS they add when they do updates. From a programming point of view this is TERRIBLE.

My two favorite Naffs are 1: time restraints on Assassination missions. I realise they try to make it real as possible, it is supposed to be a game for ENTERTAINMENT one of the fun parts for me is doing these type of missions. So I take one today it tells me I have to wait 20 minutes to see the Target. Why not Let the location of the Target appear when you jump to the system.

2. The rewards now are silly as another poster pointed some of them are not worth the effort.

But what I think is interesting is lead Developer stated he did not want players to waste there time.

At this time I am one of the lucky players to have a huge CR balance and the ships I like to play with. Also I have a second account to clear and play around as a newbie as will. Ok still waiting to get to ELITE Combat but it will come no doubt.

I love this game the Support Team are A1 but the developers take a C- [IMO].

LOL, you think making credits in the game is *slow*?!?! Obviously someone never played the game back in 2015. If it were up to me, refuel, repair & even storage of ships would carry a significantly high price. If credit balances are going to be so high as to be meaningless, then the game needs credit sinks to remove a significant chunk of them.

Also, Engineering is *not* a grind. I managed to get 2 of my Multicannons from G1 to G5 in a combined time of about 30 minutes. If that rate of progression is a "grind" to you, then you clearly just want an "I win" button installed.

I have lots of play time with this game. I do agree that repair costs should be higher, if my vette gets Hull damage then the Repairs should be a % of the rebuy. Mine is I think 35 mil so lets say 1% per 10% of damage.

So if 30% ship damage would yield a repair charge of 3,500,000.
Storage could be calculated in a similar way this would have to be worked out carefully as some players leave the game for months sometimes.

It does even work in your home system and with multiple stacked scan missions. It's not like as soon as you are wanted you're suddenly swarmed by police and bounty hunters, at least not in Solo. But if it happens, you just run instead of fighting back to prevent notoriety. It's really easy like that now. You can even fulfill your contracts at stations with only anonymous excess. In 2.3 doing multiple scan missions with private beacons in the same system required leaving the system, waiting a few minutes, paying the fee and then come back for the next scan. Otherwise, if you ignored this, you got a really nasty bounty with a cooldown of 24 hours. This is much better now as it does encouraging to take a little risk when doing stacked missions in the same system while at the same time it also makes this risk more manageable. And even more convenient if you got one or more IF stations in your home system. ;)

A pure win in all regards compared to the old system - if only these occasional nasty bugs with notoriety wouldn't occur...

Actually sir, I should have qualified my statement with some of the Engineering is a grind. [knocked out] Getting my Multi cannons to G5 was simple too. 5 on my Vette. But the grind for Hull upgrades well I will just say I hate Mining:D.

That's the point. As soon as you *hate* some aspect(s) of the game you need to compensate with grindy gameplay. You can't just exchange an unwanted activity with another more favored one. That's not how the game works. Best example are all those who would preferably solve everything with pew pew. These guys are especially prone to the Grind and that's also the direction where the most vocal moaning usually is coming from. :p

or in other (admittedly harsher) words, people who grind are people who suck in playing the game. the game *never* force you to grind. period. all the "but" and "if" that I can hear coming in now is what actually and actively creates the grind for YOU.

I hate exploring, but I did it for my DD5s.

Look at it this way, you never have to go mining again!
 
Detention centres? . Combat ships dont typically jump, why in the name of all thats holy are they 70+ ly away nearly every single time. "We don't want to waste your time." Are you actually serious. HA.
 
Seriously. Sit here for 45+ minutes doing sweet F ALL because none of them have outfitting stuff or any real sense in where theyve been placed, 3.0 is great, detention centres? TRASH. unless you'll be having them with resonable resources to get off or placing somewhat near areas players actually use there would be sense in it, as it is an awkward waste of time. To be honest i dont understand why you wouldnt be processed at the nearest station Do they not have legal facilities? What do they do with thier petty crims? VENT THEM?
 
That's a nice one, Frontier. THE PATCH CAUSED THE GAME TO UNINSTALL ITSELF FROM STEAM.

You are wearing my goodwill as a customer dangerously thin with 3.0, my dudes : /

Aww, crime has *consequences* now. Let me play you a sad song on the world's smallest violin. They are *detention* facilities, why would they have outfitting?!?! If it were up to me, crims with sufficiently high notoriety would have to summon their ship to their current location and/or be relegated to a stock Sidewinder until they got back to their home territory.
