    I wanted to go to the Cat's Eye Nebula but it's wayyy above the galactic plane and there is nothing to target inside it.

    I think I will go to the Coalsack for my first trip.

    Also for anyone wanting to go to the core: don't. The systems there are bugged and your character will get stuck.

    OK... What the actual fuck.

    ngc 7822 sector jh-v c2-2

      Spoiler:


    The more I look around the more interesting this gets.. Looks like half the region is locked out.

    Bought myself a Cobra after making a "shitload" of money in belts popping Anaconda's - This has been fun but Hogg an I bought Cobras and fitted for some decent range and here we are a distance from home.

    What now?

    The Cobra feels awful in combat, vulnerable and slow against its cheaper (but less exploration capable counterpart).

    I either need to make a lot of money fast, or start killing players.

    I'm currently somewhere between Achenar and Lave. Once I get to Lave I'm gonna look up my old trading route from the original Elite to see if it's still there.

    Don't want to go anywhere too far off until I have an A grade FSD and an advanced discovery scanner on my Cobra.

    Make money, fit it to the standard of previous ship and/or A grade internals. Then try again. imho Cobra isn't great at combat, but some people swear by it.

    Does the advanced discovery scanner scan the whole system or is it just a faster single scan of planets?

    Basic Discovery Scanner has a range of 500 light seconds. Intermediate has 1000ls range, and the Advanced scans the entire system regardless of range. If you're going serious explorer, don't leave home without the Advanced.

    Edit: Also, leave home in something bigger than a Cobra. A Cobra will get you around 1-2k ly away from the core systems before the jump range drives you space-mad - it's just not enough for really long distances.

    Where do you find Anacondas? Best i manage to get in extraction sites are lowly Cobras.

    So before I venture out, should I get an ASP or stick with my almost full grade A Cobra? I'm worried about ship hull durability, wat do.

    Get an Asp. It'll mean a longer wait before you go but an infinitely more tolerable journey.

    Instead of the Asp, i would have a good look at the Lakon Type 6 for exploration. It is still somewhat affordable, has almost the asp's jumprange and should have all the internal slots one would ever want as an explorer.

    I'm running a Type 6 now for rare trading and I kinda like the maneouvrability and stuffs, it isn't bad for what it is and it's quite affordable to outfit nicely.

    Yeah, it's decent. Mine does around 220/350 and jumps 28 LY unladen IIRC. Drop the cargobays and you have room for scanners etc. Doesnt feel quite like an Asp though. The problem with the Asp is that upgrades are so bloody expensive, and ditto repairs..
