A friend of mine is planning on starting this game. I warned him, but he's ignoring me. I quit playing about the time their "big ground breaking POWERPLAY" did fucking nothing.

Can we transfer credits yet? He just wants to explore the void and I'd like to transfer him a few million so that he can just buy an Asp without having to waste time on the grind.

Thanks for the quick response. It is disappointing that we still need to make due with the work around that we had in the beta when we all assumed "we'll have grouping soon. Trading credits/supplies is basic 101 stuff."


Have their been any major improvements since powerplay? Or is it just worthless crap and ship padding by making new variants of old ships?

I still have a dim ember of hope for the game. It just feels like they have a good skeleton that has the potential to be fleshed out really well. I see that horizons is out, but driving around lifeless dust-balls in a dune-buggy seems really underwhelming. Especially since steam is telling me that fucking Space Engineers has planetary landings on earth-like planets now.

Fuck the Brabenvision, and fuck the Forumdads and their Cobras.

I know about that one website that would let me track down parts upgrades

I think I'm liking combat way more than the trading game, though. any recommendations on ships/weapons to aim for?

>>126964414
On my Vulture I stick to beam lasers and those do good enough when I go to combat.
For ships depends on what you want but I went from sidewinder to adder then cobra 3, those work for multirole well enough, but if you want to stick to combat I would say get an Eagle, then a Viper.

>>
>>126972145
Negative means they're paying you the difference.
>>
>>126972145
you get 172k cred for the deal. But you're taking 10% off the sale. If you strip modules first you only pay 10% for hull. Best strip them modules boy.
>>
>>126972262
>>126972356
so there's no way to keep what I bought for the SW and put on the eagle?
>>
>>126972454
Nope, the VISION does not allow part swapping yet. Once you buy it you just get default shitty gear and you'll have to kit it out.
>>
>>126972454
If you sell the modules, then sell the ship, then go straight to outfitting, you can rebuy your modules. If the game exits after you sell modules, or launch dock then you cant buy them back.
>>
>>126972454
Unfortunately not.

Luckily selling modules off a ship gives you 100% of the cost back so you're not losing anything.

You only lose 10% of the cost of the ship itself+remaining modules when you sell the ship.

related note: what is the general's opinion on gimballed vs turret mounts? fixed seems like a bad idea for a variety of reasons. never tried a turret weapon out yet, I'm worry it might be too confusing to aim while flying
>>
>>126973212
Gimballed auto-aims in front of the ship, and does 70% of the fixed version's damage.

Turret can hit everything around the ship, as long as your ship isn't in the way (can't shoot through yourself), and does 20% of the fixed version's damage.
>>
>>126973212
Fixed for pvp, gimballed for pve, turrets aren't worth it unless they are large.

Gimballed burst is best imo.
>>
>>126973212
Turrets are garbage.
Gimbal are normal if you're just lazily fighting pve stuff
Fixed are for 1v1 me bro pvpers who aren't using multi-cannons and class for plasma accelerators.
>>
>>126973496
Turrets are completely automated, btw. They auto aim, and auto fire.
>>
>>126973212
Only get turrets if you have a huge ship with a lot of hardpoints to harass little nimble faggots in eagles.
>>
>>126973657
Currently turrets don't work like that in FAW mode. They behave exactly like target only mode on a Cutter/Corvette.

They won't track or fire at all unless you hold down their fire group bind and the turrets with no firing solution on anything will randomly either: fire forward as if you had them set to fixed mode, fire for 2s randomly and try to seek a target (that it can't find because it's on the other side of the ship) and they get stuck not shooting again until you release the bind, or they just don't fire at all.

I have no idea what they're doing over at ftroop.

On top of that only class 3 beam turrets do any damage at all. The rest are a total joke.
>>
>>126973572
why is gimballed burst best?

I thought beam was the best gimball
>>
>>126976268
They're not, they're literally the worst kind of laser in the game.

come on man, this is ftroop we are talking about. they couldnt code thier way into or out of a paperbag and the unpaid intern is fed up with brabo visions constant bullshit
>>
>>126976268
Beam does high dps, but drains cap too fast and does worst damage to hull of the lasers.
Pulse does low dps, but shoots one pulse and has best effiiency. It has low penetration of armor but better than beam.
Burst shoots multiple pulses, that do more hull damage than either beam or pulse. They drain cap at just the right amount for me.

Just my experience with the different laser weapons. I prefer burst over pulse, and pulse over beam. Beams drop shields faster but are too weak against hull and drain cap too fast.

Gimbled burst isn't bad, but it's not as good as the fixed variants.

What I use depends on the ship I'm flying. Vulture, it's either Dual Pulses, or a Beam and Cannon.

For my FAS, I put multicannons in the medium spot, and I'm experimenting with the large slots at the moment. Beam drained the capacitor really quickly, but made me overheat even quicker, but had very nice damage while they were firing. Pulses couldn't even drain the capacitor faster than it recharged, and the damage seemed very low. I'm about to try Burst.

This is old as shit but likely hasn't changed. You can shoot with beams for maybe 5-10 seconds before running out of cap because it just drains too fast. Pic related you do 23%-46% damage.
Fire burst however you can fire for 15-20 seconds easy. You end up doing 57% - 76% damage.

The amount of time on target is important. Not to mention you use less cap in wep so you have more to spare for micromanaging shields and engines.

It's just a more pleasant experience than beams, which make you overheat. Don't overheat with burst. Have you even tried it recently?

>was only able to sell some modules

You can't straight up sell vital components like the power plant, but you could have downgraded them to the cheapest model to get back your upgrade money.

Stripping a ship as much as possible before selling the hull is recommended because modules sold in outfitting return 100% of their value but if you sell the whole ship any modules onboard sell at 90%.

eg: Have class A part worth 120,000, downgrade to class E part worth 600. You get back 119,400. Sell ship, get 540 for the class E you swapped in. Total recoup: 119,940. Total loss of 60cr.
vs
Have class A part worth 120,000. Sell ship, get back 108,000 on the part. Total loss of 12,000cr.

Not even an exploit. Frontier was going to make modules sell for 90% at one point but then backed off after complaints that this would cripple the ability to tweak your loadout in the face of ever-changing meta.

They are fully aware that modules sell for 100% in outfitting. It's like that on purpose.

Something found within the game that allows the player to gain an advantage compared to what the developers intended, but without editing the game or using an external program to manipulate it.

Example, buy item for ten gold, it sells for 12 for some reason. Repeat until rich =exploit

Setting custom value of item to 100 gold = cheating.

Cheat codes, while able to fall under exploit, are an exception since at the end of the day they are still intended to be there.

Last I checked, the forum dads were still arguing over this one
>>
>>126986626
an exploit is just a way to gain a benefit due to a flaw in the game design, doesn't really matter whether it was intended or not, it's a design bug.

cheat codes are regular cheats

if they really intended for it to be 100% for modules then modules attached to a ship would also sell 100%, but they don't, so it's an exploit

Yet the current functionality of selling modules is still 100%, with no way to get around that currently. We can go one further step and say that since this variable is unchanging and constant for the entire playerbase, it's not an exploit but a mechanic. A shitty one at that mind you, but still.

Or look at it this way, if Frontier really wanted to change it, they would have done so by now. The fact they backed off is irrelevant, since it still exists.

If the devs want to change that but are unable to due so because of community backlash, that only says that the devs are a bunch of pussys afriad of pissing off some old men on the internet.
>>
>>126987305
that still doesn't change that it's an exploit, exploits can be intended
>>
>>126985594
You aren't making more money, you're losing less

Selling the ship gives a flat 90%, but taking the time to refit everything gives you the outfitting costs back.

It's like selling your car to a dealer. They give you a flat number, but if you sell some of the aftermarket parts before selling the car, the lower number from the dealer is still offset by what you made back from parts.

Not really no. Thats not how it works. Bugs can turn into mechanics since they can be cool, look at Crackdown and the ability to drive up walls.

Exploits in video games, by their very nature, are unintended side effects that can be used to gain an unfair advantage, and capitalized upon for further gain.

Selling modules gives you exactly nothing more then you put in, you gain nothing. Its a shitty design choice to act as a placeholder for module storage that's never coming, nothing more

Top dad logic.

>>126985594
They redacted their idiotic change because there are modules that cost more than all but two ships in the game and one that costs more than any entire fucking ship.

>1.7b net worth

With no storage of modules in the game their dead, contentless universe would be even more of a ghost town than it is right now.

>buy a weapon that costs 21 million credery-doos
>it's dog shit
>lose 2.1 million selling that crap back

Yes, excellent. This is the future, a land that has no simulators to try out ships or hardware for them.

Oh, and let's not forget the part where a weapon the size of a medium or small ship does 7% damage to it if it hits because it's been bugged forever.
>>
>>126987529
Exploits would be Robigo and 17 Draconis. The devs don't intend for them to be like they are, but due to systems in the game, they are. The devs have even tried breaking these several times, but they remain under even the tweaked game systems.

Modules selling for different prices depending on which button you push is an oversight on their part. They intend to sell for 100%, but under certain circumstances, they only sell for 90%. That's an oversight on their part, one that hurts the player, and therefore not an exploit.
>>
>>126986904
It's just a shitty mechanic in a poorly designed game. Next you'll be saying that turning off the power to your cargo hatch is an exploit because there's no benefit to having it on when not scooping.

You're logic is reversed. You aren't getting more money than you should, you are losing less by parting out the ship. This is something that happens in real life.

Yes, hardpoint sizes determine what class of weapon you can put on it. Eagles only have small hardpoints, aka class 1

>>
>>126991469
weight isn't a factor, just class. The different lasers have different functions. Beam is for limited time on target, so they are geared for max damage in that small time. Pulse are just balanced lasers. Burst have a longer firing time, but aren't really that great for damage; they are meant for constant fire over time.

Gimballed weapons always do less damage than fixed, and have a higher power draw, but they auto target in front of you. Turrets are the same thing but another step further.

You should try reading the forums sometimes.

>>126992664
For ease of use and longevity, go with a couple pulse lasers and a multicannon. 2 multicannons and a beam if you're feeling adventurous. Or you can go with what >>126991864 said if you want to have maximum fun with little profit margin

My favorite setup is fixed lasers with gimballed kinetics, but it's whatever floats your boat. Since you can sell modules back at 100% cost, you can try out whatever you like until you're happy.

>>126979626
They are the worst, sorry. There's more to a weapon's combat effectiveness than straight damage. Sustained fire capability is also important.

Not entirely true. All active systems generate heat. The less shit you have running, more heat tolerant your ship is.
>>
>>126989124
>>126990501
>burst laser

Isn't the burst laser right there? In your screenshot?

Fixed version 2nd on the list, gimballed 3rd.
>>
>>126993157

I ran all fixed on my old eagle. Beam in the roof mount for pulling down shields and and multicannons on the wings for tearing apart the hull.

Rails have fantastic damage output but the ammo is hideously expensive at the early stage of the game.

The eagle is the most maneuverable ship in the entire game. If you rely on gimbals in that, heavier ships are going to be very difficult to get accustomed to.
>>
>>126986524
I just started playing that again. Its fun as fuck but I feel like it could use a sequel that ups not only the cuhrazee and graphics but the scale of the battles too with absurd amounts of enemies and allies.
>>

>>
>>126993157
Fixed beam
Gimballed multicannon

that way you can all cannons go and not worrying about leading the target. I wouldn't do what >>126998593 is suggesting because the lead on the multi means that you can't fire all weapons at once, unless they fixed that.
>>
>>126999867

Don't need both simultaneously on anything you can't fly straight up the ass of in an Eagle.

>>
>>126991469
>Man I don't understand upgrades at all
>The Burst Laser fixed and gimballed both have lower damage stats and higher power drain than the pulse lasers eagle came with

Burst lasers have slightly lower base damage and lower rate of fire but note how the overall damage per second is higher.

This is because the burst actually fires three shots every time it goes off.

Small gimballed pulse lasers deal 1.75 MJ of damage per shot and fire 4 times per second = 7 MJ damage per sec

Small gimballed burst lasers deal 1.66... MJ of damage per shot and fire 1.7 times per second (resulting in 5.1 actual shots per second) = 8.5 MJ damage per sec
>>
>>126991469
>Oh so I can only get weapons with 2.00 T (Class 1)?

All class 1 weapons happen to weigh 2T right now, though could change in the future.

The class is what actually determines if it'll fit in your hardpoint. Outfitting on stations won't even display weapons that don't fit. When you go to fit a class 2 hardpoint, you'll be shown all the class 2 and class 1 weapons available, but none of the class 3 or 4.
>>
In the medium weapon tier, how do Rail Guns, Particle Accelerators, and Cannons compare?

I'm toying around with the medium weapon slots on my FAS, and currently, I'm using cannons, and the amount of heat they generate per shot, and the amount of capacitor energy they use works well with my Large weapons, but the way I'm using them currently, I might as well have a Rail Gun, or a Particle Accelerator.
>>
>>127004067
Cannons are great on their own and the ammo is cheap. Rail guns and PAs are really powerful, but the ammo is obscenely expensive at first and the ammo capacity isn't really worth it for long bouts of combat. Single fights with reloading runs between is where they shine.
>>
>>127004067
https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=140240

rail gun looks good on paper but that fucking ammo count
>>
>>127004379
I was more wondering about the heat generation and capacitor usage of the PA and Rail Gun. Currently using Burst lasers for my Large weapons, and my capacitor is recharging slightly lower than the energy they use, and the heat generated by them isn't too extreme. Cannons firing don't make any noticeable difference on my heat generation and capacitor usage. With this setup, I can kill anything before heat and capacitor become a problem.

I was just wondering how badly PAs and Rail guns would fuck with this setup.
>>
>>127004067

I prefer multicannons. Cannons have a very slight edge in DPS but the ammo supply on multis lasts over twice as long.

Rails are even worse for ammo and I don't like sharing my capacitor or radiators with them or plas. Both consume cap and generate heat in huge amounts.

I'd put a class 3 multi in the bottom large if they existed, and then a beam on the roof.
>>
>>127004706
depends on the ship, but they generally create fuckloads of heat if fired off in succession. If you pace the shots, you won't have any issues. If you shoot your guns like an ork desperately trying to get more dakka, you might want a heat-sink
>>
>>127005042
PA seems to generate less heat than railgun
>>
>>127005042
>>127005093
Yeah, I usually use multicannons. I was just trying out different stuff just for the hell of it. But knowing that Rail Guns and PAs will gobble up all my heat and capacitor, I'll probably not try them.

Thanks for the help, bros.
>>
>>127005378
As I said to someone earlier, try out whatever you want. Selling modules back has a 100% return rate. Try out as many different combos as possible until you find your groove.
>>
>>127005378
you kill ship faster with dual PA or railgun but you had to strip down your shield
>>
I outfitted my Python in-game exactly as I set it up in EDShipyard, but the values like power output and jump range are different, even though I double checked it to be the exact loadout. Is EDShipyard flawed?

Has anyone come across this before?
>>
>>127005572
Nah, I'm trying this stuff out on a FAS. Reactor power isn't a problem. I have more reactor power than I know what to do with. Hence why I'm just trying shit out. I could slap 4 PAs on this thing, and still not have to worry about setting energy groups.
>>
Riddle me this

Huge gimballed cannon or Huge PA on an anaconda?
>>
>>127005178

Railguns cause more heat than they draw power, and PAs vice-versa.
>>

So is Horizons any good? I have the base game that I bought on launch but haven't played that much because I don't have a stick, and I don't particularly like PvP.

Getting the Cutter/Corvette is a huge grind now for rep, so I hope you did that before 1.5/2.0.

PvE is the same, but you can play pretend with powerplay if you want and community goals pay much more than before.

What community goals are you talking about?
>>
>>127008675
If you check the game launcher or the official forums there's always a post about current community goals.

Basically you go to a system and agree to work for the goal and then you turn in bounty vouchers or combat bonds or trade materials, whatever they want you to do.

Then they pay you at the end of the time or when it completes based on how much you did for the goal.

Inbetween DPS and DPE. Best DPS against hull specifically.

Keep the MCs. Cannons are way less reliable and run out of ammo way faster for the extra damage they do. Just remember to target powerplant with the MCs.

Here's a magic trick. Don't slow down when coming up on the outpost/station, the second you pass it, do a hard vertical flip and then cut throttle to 75% so you're coming at it from above or below. they can't interdict you at that angle, they have to be behind you.

Dads have proclaimed time and again that the Viper is the second coming of christ, and for a very long time was what Frontier balanced the rest of the ships around, that if a single viper could not take it out, then it was OP.

Viper fags are also the reason why the Python was nerfed.

Fuck that ship. Its ass, and there is plenty that does what it does far more faster, more efficiently, and allows you to stay out for far longer periods of time without murdering your jump range.

Nah brah. Back in the day, people in their vipers were bitching hard fucking core that their dedicated combat ship was getting bodied by the Python. They could not run, for they did not know how to, and their guns did exactly fuck all, the same as they are now mind you, but this still pissed them off to no end because "muh specialization"

I shit you not, dads were raving on the forums that the small little shit ship called the viper should be easily able to take on the Python, and with it the Anaconda, simply because it was marketed as a combat ship while the others were not.

Then it got nerfed. The Anaconda was next on the chopping block, but by the time those were commonplace the community finally figured out that high jumping negates everything, and most people left the viper for better things.

>>127044142
Oh I know, at this point I'm taking the piss out of another guy for saying that no one uses the Viper anymore, and it's for good reason.

Go standard, it's not like it really matters. I imagine bi-weave is nice to have if you lose shields constantly, but anything that is able to do that has a piss hard time doing more damage once you start running like a pussy.
>>
>>127043907
No, at the time 1v1 me bros were all about the viper and how dare anything compete with the premier combat ship.

Let's just forget that the game had a total of 10? ships and the majority of them were worthless garbage. The whiners couldn't afford anacondas or pythons because busy dads only have time to shitpost, not exploit credits or play the game.

So the python was unnecessarily nerfed and now it's sort of mediocre and there are no ship options in the larger medium pad format.

AMD supercruise bug if you have an AMD video card.

AMD says they finally found out what causes it and there will be a fix, but it didn't show up in the 15.12 drivers and ftroop has no fucking idea what they're doing.

It only showed up after their xbone optimization patch and ftroop knows exactly what causes it, but they won't fix it and instead passed the buck to AMD.

If you have a new card 390/fury, you're fucked.

If you have an old card you can revert drivers to ~15.4.

I havnt played in a long time, but kinda want to try to get back in. I played when it was popular to go from bast to somewhere to trade, Got a couple of millions doing that.
Got around 1mil and a Cobra.

I see that they have fixed missions, as one just netted me like 100k. Now I just want to find a decent home station so I can earn some reputation, I doubt Ill touch powerplay as of now.
I want to join the Empire, but I have no idea where they hang, I am just outside Sol as I noticed that I was really close to it.

How are exploring, mining, missioning, bounty hunting and such? Still a clear best way to gain credits?
>>
>>127048756
Because Ftroop is shit?

Ftroop admitted it's caused by the way they changed supecruise halos from other ships after their 'optimization' aka xbone graphics parity so get dumpstered pc users, but they won't do anything to fix their problem and blamed AMD.

>>127049209
I'm only answering because of your image.

Go to any empire system for rep if you don't care about grind efficiency.

exploring: boring, but you can land on planets
Mining: trash
missions: most are broken, don't bother with anything but smuggling and those are broken too
Bounty hunting pays much more than before and it's even easier because 90% of the time the AI does nothing at all now.

There are bugs from 2003 in everyone's drivers.

If you're seriously arguing that gcn is worse hardware in the sub 6-700 dollar range then idk what to tell you because you're on coke.

It also doesn't matter what the high end is like because sub 1% of the population ever buys a 700+ dollar video card.

But I guess you can enjoy your 3.5gb card for 370 dollars instead of getting one that actually has access to all of its memory for 350 and is faster in everything not hampered with gameworks (that also cripples all old nvidia cards for no reason -looking at you 780).

>>127050451
Fly around in a comfy ship because this is the only space game out and functional, even if it's empty with no depth at all.

Exploring with planetary landing can be fun if you like screenshots and weird systems.

There are a lot of new ships to try if you haven't played in forever.

Combat and community goals pay much better than they did if you've been gone for 11~ months.

And I guess you can play pretend and do power play crap for your faction if you want.

No, ftroop quality code affects some nvidia cards as well.

The 960, 970 and 980 non-ti. For them they get stutters instead of permanent decreasing fps if the pc has issues.
There are plenty of posts about this problem but precompiling shaders helped quite a bit. It's still present and gets whined about, but no response from devs.

The 970 tanks on planets now too which is why the VR recommendation minimum is a 980 and honestly that has to be at low settings. Planet performance is fucking terrible on every vendor.

I think a 980ti is around 65fps. 390x/fury is around 50-57 on planets on ultra.

Or just make bounties the same number. Negative, you owe, and cops will fuck you up. Positive, the cops owe you. So if you accidentally shoot, but have 10 million in bounties, you now just have 9,999,600 in bounties.

This would also allow you to work off bounties by bounty hunting in system.

So I set up my controls as the Keyboard & Mouse and then modified it a bit from there
for example I changed mouse X-Axis to Yaw and put A and D as roll
Roll speed is perfect
Pitch speed is a bit slower than I'd want but it's alright
Yaw speed is TERRIBLE

I'm using an Eagle right now but I noticed it on the starting SW too
is this normal or is there a way to improve this?
or is my only option to just roll and use pitch instead

>>
>>127070838
The difference is you get pulled over every 30 seconds by space dindus.
>>
>>127065706

All major maneuvering is done with roll+pitch.

Yaw is shit in all ships so combat doesn't consist of nothing but ships being giant space turrets.
>>
Are the deliver a confidential package assignment things broken?
>>
>>127070838
The things the two games have in common are the lack of a story and the lackluster content.
Having played ETS2 i can say without a doubt that ED is actually less repetitive since you can do a few of other things if you're not trading, such as bounty hunting, joining a faction to help them in a very basic fight for the control of systems or even some simple missions.
Although the game is very grindy and tedious when you follow the VISION, there are many exploits that can reduce the grind by a lot, giving you the opportunity to do less boring things while still having some cash to enjoy the ships.
Don't get hyped by the "whole galaxy simulated" because it lacks a lot of uniqueness, just like many other things in this game.
But if you want a somewhat realistic space simulator with cool ship to mess with when you have that desire of zero-g combat, sure go on.
Also don't bother with Horizon, it's not worth the full price, same can be said for the base game but it's currently at 15$ on Steam, which is an honest price.

The scanners alone run 1.75mil. Then a top-shelf fuel scoop can cost millions by itself for larger sizes.

A stripped down hauler can explore with good jump range, or merely decent jump range if you put an SRV hangar in it ,and will run about 3mil outfitted.

At least when AMD fucks up, they're doing it in their own camp instead of all over the most popular latest releases. Not only that, but AMD supported titles are the ones showing the most graphical progress, while gameworks is just adding shit, performance-hungry versions of generic visual effects regardless of what brand of hardware you run it on.

How's the privateering side of things? I played last in october, running around in a Cobra, and interdicting traders. Never got much action until I got a guy to split half his cargo with me, Shame there's too many NPC's about, I joked with him about cutting him a slice of my next few scores if he would inform me of whenever any large haulers left his usual routes. He agreed, but that was probably 4 months ago.

>Finally decided that Elite Dangerous is looking like a game i want to get.
>Find out bounty hunting is actually a thing

Is it viable to just be a bounty hunter? I've always wanted to play in an online persistent world and be a bounty hunter with an established name (as much as i can) and hunt down small fries and big fish.

It's probably not viable to live off bounties alone though right?

I'm new to the game and that's what I'm doing
Seems to pay out better than fishing for missions you can actually complete at the start
It's not super satisfying and sometimes you're just way out of your league plus there's no organized bounty hunting system (i.e. you can't browse a system or a tv channel with a black sheriff telling you who has a bounty on their head and track them down)
it's not anywhere near a bebop level you would hope for but it's fun

>>127107409
Bounties is the only comparable activity besides trading that can make you a viable amount of Cr per Hr to bother doing it for your time. It won't be very interesting though, very couch based affair, where once you get the right ship, you'll spend your time warping in system to known Bounty points, scanning ships, and then downing them in 10 seconds or less. I wish it could be something more story based or interesting, like having to detain or interrogate a chain of pirates to get to a big name worth a huge Cr bounty, but THE VISION doesn't account for making their own stories, so you'll have to supplement everything yourself.

>>127107763
RES sites. You basically always go there, throw out a scan, and elim the ships that pop up. That's why I say it's boring, there's little to no interaction, and you'll probably spend a lot of your time doing it tabbed out, same thing with trucking. That's why I switched to pirating so my universe feels a little bit alive. It's not profitable, and you come up empty sometimes, but it feels better to me than just spread sheeting my way through space.
>>
>>127107871
They can, but nothing gets to like astronomical levels, and it's infinitely more monetarily rewarding to hunt NPC bounties. Few people roleplay so you won't be getting much luck if you want to hunt down some big bad pirate.

And no, you can't set hits, again, VISION.

Bounties are some of the best money to be made, but its not as glorious as you might think considering your inspiration of Cowboy Bebop.

the python's a monster of a ship with absurd power available, you can use prismatic shields + a shield booster + double shield cells + plasma accelerators without breaking much of a sweat

Neat. What's the go with those prismatic shields? Are they considered superior to normal ones or is there a really bad drawback?

I used to have one but I was dumb and too eager when I bought it and though I could use it as a trading vehicle with all the lightest(also read as:cheapest) internals and found it too expensive to maintain(fuel and any little scratch would cost hundreds and thousands).

But i'm making some decent dosh now in my Asp and probably when I get around 150mil i'd like to return to either a Python or FDL, sparing no expense and having the freedom of having plenty in the kitty if i'm in trouble.

>launching heat sinks and chaffing
Silent running makes you hard to spot, chaff disrupts targeting and pauses scans. Heat sinks announce your presence. You shouldn't be launching chaff unless you've seen "scan detected" on your HUD, and you should always activate silent running well before you get anywhere near the station if not immediately after dropping. You don't even need to boost, at 100% thrust then drop to 75% for the final approach and you can glide through the dock easily, and even if a scan is attempted, there shouldn't be enough time to complete it if you did everything correctly.

Chaff doesn't prevent Scans, it merely interrupts them for a few seconds. You remember bounty hunting, when you would try to scan a wanted dude and he would pop chaff? same thing.

it only buys you a couple of seconds, thats it once it's done the cops continue scanning you.

>silent running doesn't turn you invisible to everyone
I understand this, but surely you have options to evade scans, as even one successful scan can make you fail your mission-
>no you can do nothing, get scanned, get fucked
okay, you can get scanned in silent running, you can do nothing against it when scanned after interdiction, so at least if you use silent running from far away to fly to the station and boost through, you are 2fast for scan-
>no you can still be scanned, get fucked
w-what? so skill and silent running basically has nothing to do with being scanned or not and I don't even have a retort once the scanning starts? it's all rng?

Which ship has better handling, Viper MKIV or Cobra MKIII

This shit right here
unless you are behind them from the get-go, the opportunities to get into their flank are far and between and good lucky living that long like in my case just few seconds ago

I just don't want to fall for meme ships with my tight noob income

>>127137061
whenever people talk about the asp, they mean the explorer, yes? I'm mostly interested in dogfights for now, with the endgoal to fly in the center and to the edge of the galaxy to look at new space wallpapers

guess I'll just stick to the cheaper, faster ships for now and investing a bit into the DBS

>>127139621
Asp is a good ship though

>>127139603
I have out-turned them in RES fightans, all you really need to do is drop their shields and then assfuck the powerplant

this time I realized too late that he was after my mission-related cargo according to VISION script

>>127139227
Yes the Anaconda is surprisingly nimble despite its huge size

>Meanwhile the python, a ship half its size turns like a freighter

VISION

>>127139621
Yes, the other Asp is a joke ship. Do not waste credits on it.

The Explorer is great, if you get 20 mil you can outfit it however you want, it'll be able to fly to the centre of the galaxy, hold its own in a fit, or at least live long enough to get away. Not good for looking for a fight unless it's PvE.

If you wanna fight before all that stuff i'd suggest looking at the Vulture.
