    Games. And many more stuff. I particularly enjoy reading long books about story analysis, characterization, etc. Yup. My life is super interesting.

    Elite Dangerous - Krait Mk II is excellent!

    Thanks a lot. Inara has always been a tool I used. I was more looking for a time estimate for material gathering for FSD engineering. If its a crazy grind I won't bother atm.

    Ah, ok. I get it then. Thanks. Increased range, grade five, is it normal hard to obtain or it will take me two months of searching around? Just asking for a reference since I have little idea about the engineering stuff.

    I tried the build you posted from the reddit guy but I don't get more than 20ly jump. You said you can go 29 without the upgrade. Any clue what is going on? Could it be that you assume the FSD has been engineered already? He says the only engineering it needs is the Guardian one.

    Thanks a lot. You explained it really well but it sounds like a convoluted mess design wise (or maybe it reads like this to me). Is any of this explained in game?

    I guess when you unlock an engineer thingie you can just apply it on any ship/module you buy afterwards, right?

    Thanks for the suggestion but after returning from the core, it will take a LONG time before I do anything similar to exploring again. It almost broke the game for me (and I had plenty of issues to begin with anyway ). But since you mentioned it, the link says that I need to unlock FSD Guardian stuff, the very first upgrade. Can I do this separately or do I have to have upgraded all the previous FSD upgrades first (haven't done any engineering yet)?

    Playing this on the PC with my Elite controller and it is a joy. I have finally settled in a configuration where it offers the same choices as my X52 Pro without the need to change to alternate flight controls or sacrifice strafe and yaw during combat, etc. I am surprised by how well it translates to the controller, even if it is a bit more fiddly and my muscle memory isn't up to scratch yet. If anyone wants my bindings to try them out send me a pm. I have now left Rhea and made LHS 2037 and Meikle Port my home base. It has a high tech station and a nice cluster of fast delivery missions, good RES and a good supply of planetary scans. It is also only a couple of jumps away from International Factors stations, so paying those bounties and fines is a breeze. Now, the controlling faction in the station is the Outreach Trading Company which is in not only in boom but also controls other four stations in the system, a combination of high tech/refinery/export ones. In other words, they pay really good money for deliveries and I can easily max my rank with them since I can pick ranked missions by them from multiple stations. Now, my question is this: is it worth picking up a Type 9 and doing the wing deliveries that pay out at 7-8 million rate solo? I will be doing multiple runs on one mission and I'm not sure it's the most optimal way of time allocation. With the Challenger I can make close to 2m in an hour now (and missions are not paying very high yet), but of course it takes more time travelling around and the risk is bigger. Any thoughts?

    Is there any point to the "kill 16 pirates" like missions? It takes forever to locate them now because they are also skilled dependent. I have literally quit all of them as it was talking too long to locate them. Planetary scan missions, deliveries and rank missions /assassinations is my main focus now. Anyone been on Ebor for the bounty community goal?

    There are so many amateurish omissions in the design that I am pretty sure its just a sick design philosophy which still festers in Braben's mind and not lack of resources. I don't know where to start with all the simple things that need to be fixed to make this actually and proper enjoyable, let alone deal with complex things like writing and missions. And that is now, what, three years almost after release? Why on earth don't they bring in Drew Wagar? Reclamation was okish for what it was and Premonition looks to be a step up in my opinion. It's all we have though and, some things, have been somewhat improved. I have no choice but to go and buy one it seems. The Pleiades bodies with the barnacles are 100ly away from Maia and after returning from a trip to the galactic centre, any extra jumps get on my nerves. I will go visit them when I bump up my FSD in the Challenger, along with the Thargoid audio logs.

    After finally getting a bit used to controls and such, I had a productive evening running deliveries in the Rhea system and the surrounding ones. An economy boom and a civil war gave me opportunities to do a bunch of different missions as well and generally had a productive evening. I decided to sell my chieftain as it didn't feel right somehow, it was too twitchy, and buy the Challenger, which feels great. I A-kitted it with some bi weave shields and decided to improve on its jumprage and visit an engineer and donate a meta alloy. Well, what do you know, there is no in game way to know how to get one. You can't even search for it in the ''improved'' trade search mechanic. You don't even know what it is. How rare it is, where it came from, etc. Nothing. You are supposed to go out on the net and google, just to unlock the 1st engineer tier. So, it seems I can get it from barnacle sites which can be found at the Pleiades sector, based on an extensive google spreadsheet. I know you can also buy them in the Maia system there but that is not a given. I found in the list a mega barnacle site, a ''forest'' as they call it, that sounds amazing. I have to land in the coordinates though and as far as I know, in your quantum gravity space bending spaceship you simply can't use a... gps to lead you there. Is it difficult to land on coordinates? Is there any other way I can get the meta alloy ffs? How amazing this game would be if the really clever and dedicated people would be recognized in game by supplying this kind of information or even selling it, for example, creating a proper profession, legal or illegal one, doesn't matter. Oh, my poor Frontier, they really need to hire some real designers.

    Thanks guys. Wow, I have played a huge amount of time but coming back is no piece of cake, so many changes. @Tezcatlipoca you mean I can buy if I need something instead of going looking for it?

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

    It makes sense. I really really hope they do a prequel. There are great stories to tell. Even something new, entirely written by them. Ciri, Geralt and co are done, let them enjoy the wine and sunshine in Henrietta's vineyard.

    You can't even find them by in game tools? Pathetic - but then again I shouldn't be surprised, it's Frontier we are talking about. I got the Chieftain to try it out, maxed it out and now I'm looking to engineer it. Any tips? I was around when engineers came about but never bothered with them. I'd like to give it a try.

    I have been away for quite some time and I read that there are audio logs to discover that tell a story of shorts? How do I locate them? What is the mission I have to follow? I can't seem to find them in game.
