    Me and a mate from work went meeting in his retaliator,

    Found a wreck so I Eva's over while he manned the guns in case of pirates he "accidentally" shot me, when he next died he rezed In grimhex the bad boy station and had to atone for his sins to get out

    Topfun would recommend playing with other peeps in multicrew ships

    Today my mate Steve got Murdered while Eva in a disused station, he hit me up on comms I log in roll up in my hornet with my trusty ballistic rifle and shotgun, when I get there I see an empty super hornet

    I park up on the station dark side and Eva over to the SuperH and position my self above the exit (to the station)

    Out comes matey peeps, spots me and fires a few hasty pistol shots, I return fire and kill him

    As I'm trying to get back to my ship his mates rock up, I'm screwed my ship to far away and they pop it when lo and behold my buddie re-arrives in his vanguard kills one and chases the other off.

    Picks me up and off home for tea and biscuits.

    Looks suspiciously like the F8 concept that got leaked ages ago, this combined with CIG apparently stating at some point that they've changed the F8's direction has lead to some people claiming we're essentially being given a dusted-off and pared back version of the early F8 lightning. It would be smart if they're reusing concept/assets already developed if they decide to change direction with a project, but i'm not sure we need yet another super-hornet analogue...

    Well, part of the Hurricane's specs are that it has no armour, isn't incredibly agile (though it's probably as fast as a hornet), and can carry heavier weapons but without a power core that can run many high energy weapons.

    Another blurb mentions it has specialised containers for ammo.

    What we have here isn't just a Hornet, it's a ballistics focused glass cannon. That's a solid role and a specialised thing that they've been afraid to do with the other ships. I get that it'd lower the value of the ships but I wish they'd go back and do something somewhat similar to the other ships. Leave them able to fit anything but made with certain roles in mind that they do better at because of background design.

    Adding in, not getting this one, but I am interested in the design idea behind it and what that might mean for ships in the future. Who am I kidding, they'll never do something like that as it limits sales but man it would make ships more fun in my book.

    Hopefully this means something like the Orion will be 3.0 ready. Be interesting to explore that ship and really get to see some multi crew in action on a PvE level.

    Hopefully in 2.6.2 they will fix pirate npcs on the PU, they have a stupid shield recharge rate that is seeing superhornet's getting battered by auroras

    Jumped on this last night for the first time in a while. Now I know I was never a particular good pilot but I got into a fight with two pirates in my 325 and got raped - the shields seem to be non-existent and the guns have all turned into slow fire cannons so I couldn't hit a damn thing. Tried multi crewing a mate's Constitution, with a couple of turret gunners and me poking rather ineffectually at the engineering console - couldn't work out if it actually did anything but the shields disappeared remarkably quickly for a heavy fighter. I assume this is either a WIP balancing thing, bug or the precursor to getting ship modules and we've only got the shittiest ones available? Apart from that we had 3 hours of pretty stable space pew.

    Consoles don't work, turrets are spinning nightmares and pirates on PU have a super shield recharge bug, also 325 is super gash in any mode and needs its revision ASAP, possibly after they are done with the cutlass and freelancer

    I doubt the Orion will be, but the prospector should be.

    Remember, ballistic weapons bypass shield (or have very little effect on ballistic projectiles).
    Did you use a lead indicator?

    I've not even figured out how to buy new weapons, let alone fit them. Is that even possible? If by lead indicator you mean the little triangle thing that floats around next to the sight, then yes I do, though I never quite figured out why these super advanced future tech computerised intelligent targeting systems couldn't work it out so you just point the fucking sight at the target and press the trigger.

    Electronic access store with rec is the only advisable way, you can rent weapons and ships for a week

    https://robertsspaceindustries.com/electronic-access

    Rec is earned via arena commander multi-player modes but not star marine yet, in the PU you can use aUEC to buy space suits in area 18 and the stores in Port olisar and grimhex

    Because that makes it very hard to produce a satisfying game. I think only I-war ever managed this and made it good. But then it is the best damn space game ever made...

    I played I-War 2 again the other day. It's remarkably playable still with the fan made mod. But it's old school gaming i.e. fucking nails.

    Iwar was quite difficult until you noticed that you can stop any drift in an instant by activating the cruise mode.

    Some Iwar 2 weapons also trivialise combat quite alot compared with 1. (Gatling cannons and beam weapons) And while inconvenient, I really enjoyed the station switching of the first.
