My deepest condolences.Just lost me biscuit.
For one gut wrenching moment as i slid across the terrain of a high G world vertical thrusters straining madly,I thought i'd made it.Then my ship devolved into its component parts,and i was engulfed in flames.
Maybe time for a new commander.
My jaw dropped when I read that. We're going to have something that's persistent in the game? That's always there even when we are not?Fleet Carriers are persistent and will remain in the game regardless of whether or not the owner is online.
Thanks,Codger.I did not know about Grim Pioneer.Sounds like it is worth a visit.Explorer's Anchorage is in Stuemeae FG-Y d7561. Right next to Sag A.
There's also Grim Pioneer in Stuemeae BA-A d955.
Next closest is 11,000LY away in Boewnst KS-S c20-959
Does it have the Guardian FSD module? I'm assuming so...A couple of weeks ago I was testing out my Anaconda build for long-distance traveling via the Neutron Highway. I went about 5000LY out and back, and it was a successful test overall. However, my 'conda was only partially engineered, enough to have just over 60LY range.
Once I got back, I decided to put more time into the engineering, to bring the ship closer to what I envisioned for it. I wanted it to be dedicated to long-distance travel, but not so gimped that it became difficult or unpleasant to fly (for me). So I spent some more time on coriolis, and made my plans (I love doing that, hehe -- such a nerd).
I think she's mostly finished now.
Jump range is looking nice:

There's just enough shields to protect from bumps, and an extra fuel tank to insure against running out during those long jumps. I have a couple AMFU's and even a repair limpet controller (just in case).
The only thing left is finishing the dirty drives upgrade on the thrusters. Might as well have them maxxed, even if they are undersized.
The ship flies great, scoops really fast, and now mostly lives up to the golden paintjob.
Here we are at Black Hide, visiting The Dweller.

My current build, if you're interested:
It's quite nice to have such a long-jumping ship in the arsenal!
