    I use Adobe ProCreate - not sure if its the best, but it's the one they have on all the iPad Pros in the Apple Store - which convinced me I needed one, and an Apple Pencil. Not sure it will teach you to draw, but it is a much more forgiving process than trying the real thing - supporting layers, undo etc which gives me the confidence to try different things rather than fearing the next stroke is going to ruin my work (I think that's a common feature of the artistic temperament though). Here's one I finished today - something I'm doing for my Mum & Dad's 50th wedding anniversary next month....

    Was playing with my new iPad Pro and Apple Pencil over Christmas....... What an amazing piece of kit - drew this picture of my wife. Took approximately 9hrs to complete Drawn using Adobe Procreate. So pleased with how it came out - have started one of my son so will post that one soon

    Am I right in thinking....

    It's fascinating how everyone seems to be in exactly the same place with this show this season. Previous seasons have had staunch fans, waverers and abandoners of varying degrees but suddenly it's like we've all fallen off the same cliff at the same time. My problem, other than the terminally dull and poorly written / filmed episodes is that - i think on paper this season must have all sounded so great to the show runners. "Let's film it all on the same day from everyone's different views!" Shootouts, car chases, explosions - peril, death, treachery!! But it just hasn't worked, and the thing is I don't know where its going any more as they stumble from one 'big bad' to another, established over 2/3 seasons - going through the same emotional / existential conflicts and crises - rinse and repeat.......

    You don't need to take out the Sentry Skimmers at the base for them to count towards your mission target. Any sentry skimmers you encounter within the vicinity of the outpost will count as they will all be affiliated to that faction. Just use your scanner to search for resources - some of which will be protected by 3 (sometimes 4) skimmers which are a doddle to take our with your SRV

    Ooh - been tempted to get a paint job for my Python for a while....might have to take the plunge now!

    I tend to cruise across all stations in the system to pick up missions from the Symposium as they often target deliveries etc to the same systems / stations - so I don't see any harm in that manner. I've just paid off ~500,000 bounty from Basuseku (due to the Symposium's electioneering efforts a couple of weeks back) as well so the timing is pretty good for me

    Political missions are a dirty business aren't they? Took on some political combat missions in Basuseku and it was all Civilian targets - now got a massive bounty on my head in the name of the Symposium. I don't know what the rules are for faction expansion, but there was a lot of political missions targeting Basuseku so I wonder if that's where we'll be next?

    Interdicted by an Anaconda. Lost canopy pressure - hull at 6% but defeated him. Bounty - 400 credits

    I agree - given our size, a bubble of smaller systems slightly off the beaten track seems potentially quite manageable

    I had originally pledged allegiance to Zachary Hudson of the Federation, but haven't ever really contributed anything to Powerplay. I have however just defected to Aisling Duval as her influence, and alignment to the Empire is the closest proximity to Mukhang

    I was working my way up the Federation ranks and had just made Ensign, but the call to arms for the Symposium has made me question my loyalties and I've thrown in my lot for the Empire. Cmdr Jim Starslinger (PC)

    Do we have (or can we list) a roster of those Commanders that are actively basing their operations around (and for) the Symposium? That might give us an idea of how large we can spread. The link @Danster provided earlier stated that a system with 1.5m population could be influenced by just one commander. Mukhang has (I think) ~17m population.
