    Sup bitches

    Bought this game 3 weeks ago, got around to trying it 1 week ago roughly the same time I learned my joystick didn't work. Bought a new joystick and am now about to give this game a go. Any good/bad advice?

    Do not undock without enough funds to cover insurance. Cargo cannot be insured.

    Have fun and enjoy doing missions and getting into your role. Dont focus on getting lots of cash and the best $/hour. Thats all.

    Step 1.5 is getting everything hunky-dory with my T16000 joystick and TWCS throttle thingies then remembering what does what.

    huh, TIL: Wing members now have synced mission boards on the same station, so you all can accept the same mission.

    I am become space road miner. prospector of limpets.

    Game is fun. Question is there a way to eliminate a prospector limpet that you don't need anymore? I tried shooting it but the asteroid was very protective

    Yeah figured it out. It didn't look like it reloaded a limpit until the other one was dismissed. I was wrongo. Mining is alright, if the area is busy you collect bounties and sweet sweet ore at the same time.

    With the new ship storing & moving I am finding myself gravitate more towards EVE style asset management (Keep all the things "I might need them later") which has negatively impacted my ability to focus all funds into one ship/task. On the plus side I now can use my explorer Asp to move around and have them heavy lift my Gunship to where it needs to be rather than manually do 123254364 jumps @ 0.1 ly to get where I need to be.

    No space to store engineering commodities is a giant PITA though. Also means I basically have to fit cargo rack & limpet controller on everything. *grumble gumble*

    I wouldn't want to know what the time requirement is for that.

    All I have at the moment is a dedicated miner and a type 9 hauler. Running in to issues with not being able to find planetary settlements that are listed on the trade route resources. I'm going to assume I need a pimp discovery probe to locate everything in that regard. I'll put that on my bucket list.

    If you've got a type 9, getting the best survey scanner is peanuts

    The Nav Beacon should always be visible. Fly to it, scan it (i.e. target and point at it for a bit) and it should upload all the system POIs to your ship. Be warned that Nav Beacons can be pirate hotspots, especially in anarchy & lower sec systems. Should be fine in solo play though bar the odd NPC.

    Advanced discovery scanner is 1.5 million credits. Fit one to everything when you can afford it!

    I meant type 6, but yeah it's pretty easy to get to now.

    never used one before.

    I'm hoping it plays Blue Danube, and only Blue Danube.

    Anything else would just be uncivilized.

    You will be when the docking computer crashes you into the station the first time
