Big hint just dropped re: thargoids. Aliens are definitely in 2.2 (mid-october), but in the meantime heavy teasers are being dropped via the unknown probes and unknown artifacts, and now... this.

Decoded ascii from a video which was only available for 5 minutes (fortunately someone ripped it):

[Skip to 1:20 for aliens]


https://youtu.be/zflPK3LATCc

has led to this message:


The hunt begins on the 28th. To find us, look for a bounty hunter. To find more clues: you'll need pre-logistics support in a system with one star, two belts, three rings and enough radiation to turn you green.

/r/canonn already thinks they've found the system, though this has yet to be confirmed.

Doubt it'll suddenly deepen the current shallow gameplay pond, but could be fun to participate in the discovery.

Ok the fighter thing is cool. Does your ship continue to attack in an AI capacity?

Can you launch more than one?

Looks like there's space for two.. Maybe there's the potential for new carrier specific hulls. Thats pretty cool.

But without multi crew it feels pointless to me.

Looks like your 'mothership' just drifts along helpless without its pilot. Which makes me think "whats the point?".

That fighter knocking out a python in super quick time? has Elite combat changed that much since I last played? over 6 months ago.

I used to almost one shot those shitty little fighters in my Cobra, let alone my conda.

Maybe and its still yet to be properly balanced, but they were quite sure that fighters will be glass cannons. And i cant imagine them being very useful otherwise either. So imo they will have to be quite OP on the damage output (just in the video). If you ignore it, you will get rekt (maybe faster than you can take down the ship you are attacking).

Hey everyone who hasn't been paying attention; if you hire an NPC fighter pilot they can either remotely fly your fighter, or fly your ship (sans-FSD).

So you can tell the NPC fighter pilot how to fly the fighter or ship, e.g. aggressive, stay away, on same target, etc... and on demand you can just swap between the fighter and the ship.

I think I've read somewhere you can deploy up to 3 fighters at same time. Can't find source atm.

From ArsTechnica (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2016/08/elite-dangerous-guardians-2-2-details-guide/)


In order to use fighters, larger ships have to be outfitted with a specialised hangar module. Each module can hold up to two bays, inside which you can pick a particular fighter or load out, with a variety of defensive and offensive weapons available for each fighter.

So multiple fighters per ship ("treated like ammo"), but it looks like it might be only one controlled at a time. Or your AI pilot and you could control one each?

Everything I've read suggests that you can have 1 Ai dude on your ship, others are there as options like a crew lobby or w.e

you can launch one fighter, and ai can control it or control your ship, you can flit between them but no more than 1 fighter.

fighters can be assembled on your ship kinda like a 3d printer or w.e

only reason for taking 2 hangers atm is to fit a different type of fighter, not launch multiple. which is gay. i want lots of fighters.

That and 2 fighters.

2 fighters and a main ship seems much better.

That way you could have you + friend + ai

the ai talks to you btw, big thing for me.

Is anyone here alligned to the federation? I'm bounty hunting grinding but its a bit boring alone.

I just started playing a bit again (basically, just last weekend). Got into space trucking for the first time (AI handed my ass to me in my good old Vulture), 64t Asp Explorer on Sotis legal stuff run. Got some money and fitted a Python. My best standing is with Federation, but not very high (Cadet maybe?).

Let's group up?

I'm right near (1-2 jumps from) Rhea, its the felicia winters staging system.

I've got a system with shitloads of resource extraction sites, one of which is (high) 12ly away from the station

I'm making a solid 2 mill/h easy but could do more. Its just boring on my own after a while. takes 30 seconds to go back to station for w.e

I really want the Federal Corvette.

Can my conda still be viable without all the fancy engineered shields / weps / etc?

Is making decent money now dependant on expansions?

I don't have it either. Although I often pick up loot whilst I'm waiting for spawns, loot that apparently doesn't take up any cargo space???? and is used by engineers??? that I can't visit. Fun.

Yeah.

Lets use ingame voice too cause it adds space effects n shit and it sounds so fucking cool.

OK, I've put it down on paper this time.
I'm doing Sothis trucking and it took me some time (like weekend) to get to this point. I have brand new Python with 100t cargo and ~500LY max range fully loaded. I've picked up 6 cargo missions in Sothis and the grand total is 20M space bucks for ~30 jumps, which took me about 40 minutes (with several interceptions and one actual kill of the attacker, I didn't fit guns on this...).

I think this is good money, but Asp Explorer was better setup, it could do 60t with ~450LY max range fully loaded in 20 jumps (missions you get are ~400LY, never above 430LY).

Also, be aware that Ceos (system connected with missions to Sothis) is currently nerfed up somehow, missions and fitting are disabled and next station with fitting is 100 LY away. The required standings are not too hard to gain and I really don't like the meta with switching game modes (open/solo) to be able to pick up enough missions to fill cargo, especially with cherry picking (you can get same amount of money, for example 3M for either 15t or 60t of cargo, depends on the roll). And open play is not really possible, the docking spots are clogged and I would expect some griefers lurking about (haven't seen any, I haul in solo).

That is good money. Is the Sothis run purely space based? no ground landing?

Yes. As mentioned, I don't have expansion. Also, this is all purely legal stuff. Smuggling can go double, but RNG on the missions don't give them often, or like last night, it gave several after I was full. Before that there were few but with like 500K per mission, so I figured there was something broken. The additional problem with smuggling is that you don't know where you are going beforehand. The mission is usually "take this and go to Ceos for further instructions" and when you jump there you get destination.

Yeah, that is what I did. I'm no pro and I didn't make a science out of this, there might be better ways. I found this fit (https://coriolis.io/outfit/asp/05B5A5A4D4A5D5C----181800---05f5f343f3f2f2.Iw18WQ==.EwBgjGwSO+ynrYQ=?bn=Asp%20 Smuggler) and went to Sothis, I operate from docks, not station, but that is just because of easier docking, station might work just as well (see, I really didn't do my homework).

With Asp fit the laden jump range is important because you can do the full run in one stretch without refuelling in 20-22 jumps. As said, missions are between 400 and 450 LY. Destinations are always grouped in 3-5 jumps range around Hel, but it's nice to pick the ones ending at same station.

There are 2 limiting factors on mission, the standing and the traders rank.

I'm currently at Broker rank, I had first or maybe second rank when I started this gig on Saturday.

Standing can be mass spammed by collecting as many as possible data transfer missions in Sothis and they all go to only station in Ceos. But even staring fresh there should be sufficient cargo missions and they should give decent money from get go. I did few smuggling missions too, mixed with regular cargo, but they did not show that often or were locked behind higher standing. When I did get them, I did those first because of security scans.

The mode jumping is the most annoying part. From what I've seen the open and solo play get different mission sets. If you switch fast solo->open->solo, the solo will have same missions available, there is some kind of delay for new set, I did not explore this in detail. From what I've seen so far the private session have separate set of missions from open and solo, not only that but each private session has its own set (I have 3 private sessions).

Good cargo mission is ~2M or more for 15t. (100-130 K per tonne) They come in different tonnages, from 4-6t to 60t or above. The worst part is getting the right mission to match the cargo-hold full...

For the return runs I would use Single Route Finder (https://eddb.io/trade/single) just to fill cargo, but this in turn adds number of jumps, so your mileage may vary and there is no much money in it, just cover the fuel and bit extra.

That is basically all I know about it.

For the return runs I would use Single Route Finder (https://eddb.io/trade/single) just to fill cargo, but this in turn adds number of jumps, so your mileage may vary and there is no much money in it, just cover the fuel and bit extra.

That is basically all I know about it.

Do you not fuel scoop then?

No, it is painful as is and you do get intercepts from time to time. I can easily imagine going afk while scooping and getting killed.

The fuel cost for my trade runs were negligible, can't throw numbers around but waaaaaay under a million for full loop and I didn't want to add anything that would require more than 2 brain cells firing at a time.
My workflow is: start aligning and max throttle, wait beep of the fsd ready, hit J, zero throttle on start jump, shift tab read something in steam overlay browser until exit on other side, repeat until destination.

Now I have the whole fucking house to myself, and I have the PC in the living room, with my sofa, and my tv, and my table and chairs and ashtray.

now they come over and they are like "don't you want the PC in the spare bedroom?" im like nah I spend most of my time here, my gf can watch shit on tv and I can game, with headset on if I'm playing with people, with speakers if we are both semi watching/semi playing.

If you blow out her ears with a loud explosion she'll be permanently deaf, meaning she can only watch tv with the subtitles on and won't nag you anymore.

Alternatively give her sedative drugs until you want her for something. And even then, you don't necessarily have to wake her up.

If you alt tab after you zero it (during the countdown), its set to full throttle once you finish the jump. Its a very annoying bug of some sort :(

Ground landing was cool though, and I'm really digging the new voice comms added throughout - using the first 3 letters of your playername with the make of your ship, as a phonetic callsign is a nice touch.

Getting engineer upgrades is kinda piss easy if you pick one and look up the mats on inara. I would suggest grabbing a class 5 FSD ship (ASP X for example) and upgrading the shit out of the frame shift drive.
Here is the `recipe` (http://inara.cz/galaxy-blueprint/2).

Something that many people dont realize: you can get standing with felicity farseer (or whatever the name of the FSD grannie was) by turning in exploration data. Then you can directly get a grade 4 or 5 FSD upgrade.

Get to Jaques ASAP or you will miss the CG. You probably have time till the end of the week tops. Check the progress. Just honk and jump till jaques, turn in data and then go out actually-exploring (scanning anything past the main star /which gets auto discovered annyway/) doesnt give you more records for the community goal. Its dumb but its the way it works. You should easily get into top 25% (which gives a very nice payout), if you get there in time.

Just honk and jump till jaques, turn in data and then go out actually-exploring (scanning anything past the main star /which gets auto discovered annyway/) doesnt give you more records for the community goal. Its dumb but its the way it works. You should easily get into top 25% (which gives a very nice payout), if you get there in time.

Also lol 5k LY, I arrived at Jaques around 1AM last night. 22 LY in 3 days (evenings), fuck me my fingers literally hurt :D

Oh if it fills up does it auto-end? Thought I would have the two weeks for it.

It auto ends but i think its not immediate. If you can get there do it, its very very profitable. You can farm neutron fields and explore planets as much as you like afterwards (is my current plan). :D

Okay thanks for the heads up, will make best speed but it's still about 17kLY away though I am pushing 37LY jump range in the asp which is not too shabby. Expect I can probably get there at the weekend.

Crossing fingers, if you dont manage to do it you might as well dock there and sell the data anyway, then head out again. If something happens you wont be back in the bubble at the very least.
