High-tech systems have the best inventory, look there. The higher population the better.

Resource Extraction site. spawns pirates and space cops that shoot each other. HAZRES in best left alone until you have a Vulture or better.

>Sitting in bumfuck system waiting for WSS's to show up to hope for a chance to find military plans

I fucking hate this. Can a WSS even show up in an unexplored system?
>>
>>127364247
I seriously do not know how it's possible to play this for more than a couple of days or a week max.
I played for about that much in beta, then again several months later, and once more this week, after which the process will probably repeat.
I can understand how dads play it because they literally only play for 2 hours or so a week so they don't have time to realise it has no content, but playing any more than that is a complete mystery to me. And this is coming from someone who grinded out the same procedurally generated warframe missions for almost a year straight.

Actually, during that 2 hr stream, Brabo hinted that Beluga liner will not be able to fit through the funny hole and that it will use some other (TBD) methods of docking.
>>
>>127366275

Are you opposed to paying it off? If not, get into a shitwinder and go where you're wanted.

Dock in a station you're wanted at. Don't get killed yet.

Take off and let the sec outside shoot you down. You'll be able to rebuy the shitwinder including paying the 600k to wipe your record clean.

If you don't want to pay, get someone with a KWS to kill you but make sure the last place you docked is somewhere you're clean. Your bounty will go dormant and will be hidden from players as long as you don't commit any crimes (not even minor fines!) in systems where you were wanted.

After 7 days the dormant bounty becomes a legacy fine and can't be reactivated as a bounty. Just don't dock anywhere you have a legacy fine and then die because it gets added to your rebuy cost when you respawn there.

It's odd how small Elite freighters are. Even the clipper can only carry 700 odd tonnes of cargo. A big, modern cargo ship can carry 20,000 containers. The containers alone weight a 2 or 3 tonnes each.

They should introduce the big Lynx bulk carriers. Get some more use out of that capital ship hyperspace animation.

>>127371376
DBS is one of the ships that has more than enough agility to keep it's guns on target pretty much all the time. It takes a bit of time but it's good practice for when you use weapons that have no gimballed variant (Rails/Plasma).

However if you mix weapon types (projectiles/hitscan) then some gimbals are good to keep everything on target.

Even little things like turning up at a station and finding one of those things parked there unloading would be a nice bit of variety in the scenery.

Having them in distress call beacons would be nice as well. Not sure exactly how their hyperspace works though, that would change how you fit them into the game.
>>
>>127379748
Yeah, capital class freighters are sorely missing from the game. I heard FD want to expand on capital ships a some point, and they probably aren't adding them to the game yet because of that, but who when they'll get around to it. E:D generally need way more variety in stations and other structures in general, really. didn't one of the Dev Diaries mention something about shipyards and stuff?

Even the "small" ships in Elite are fucking enormous. What's odd is that they have so little internal space. A Type-9 should be able to carry several thousand tons of cargo.

One of the AI ships actually gets forced to take off the first time your docking request gets denied. It takes a little while before the pad is ready to accept a docking request from you though.

>>127384716

Yeah they ended up using that asset for the travel engine module for new stations.

They jettison the module and break it down for parts once the engineering section containing the factories and docking bay arrives at the destination.

Frontier really fucked the scaling.
It's like they upscaled everything 2-3x before adding in the cockpit chairs leaving you with weird anomalies like two meters of headroom for no fucking reason.

You should see the T9's cockpit in VR. It's around 30 feet tall with two separate floors behind the pilot seat, not counting the three raised platforms with the stairways and operator seating, and about as much square footage as two-storey house.
>>
>>127398336
Yeah the ships themselves are quite big. I guess I meant small in terms of cargo capacity. Comparing a fictional spaceship to something like a Maersk Triple-E container ship is probably not fair but the disparity in loads is immense.

>>127399740
The only thing I can think is that this is due to the focus on VR for the walking season so we can move around our ships with a minimum of vomit inducing canned animations.

Early game it carries plenty of cargo for trading, has great jump range for rare trading or smuggling and fights well enough compared to a Viper, which it is both faster and more maneuverable than.

It's only slightly less effective at combat than a Viper and dramatically better at absolutely everything else.

And as you'd like to pretend is a bad trait, it can outrun anything it can't deal with.

Basically there is no reason whatsoever to not get one as a progression ship at the very least.

Then you realize that all those low end ships you speak of are totally fucking useless now that it is so easy to make 10 million in a RES site.

Viper's maneuverability is shit and it can't stack armor/scbs and chaff/hs like a Cobra can. It's objectively worse at combat in spite of that being its focus.

It's not debatable. They even held a cobra dads vs viper griffers event and the griffers got completely fucking ruined despite being PVP tryhards.

DBS is great though.

Have you? The Viper MkIII's pitch/roll/yaw are almost as bad as a Python. The MkIV is actually worse than a Python. Lateral thruster authority is bad on both Viper models too.

Collect rocks, shoot robots, steal data. There's one kind of rover with one kind of weapon and no real upgrades, and the bases you can attack are all pretty much the same but different sizes.

Here's the thread I was looking for.

Pitch Roll and Acceleration for (nearly) Everyship. (UPDATED for 1.5Beta)

>>127418967

Blue range pitch rates look worse for the Viper IIRC. It's significantly faster in the blue zone but the Cobra's pitch speed improves by a larger margin in the blue.

Engine pips also have an effect:

>>127416086

Viper with 4A shield has 126 hull + 179 shields = 305 total damage capacity
Cobra with 4A shield has 216 hull + 124 shields = 340 total damage capacity
Cobra is less impacted by additional mass due to base mass already being high and having a bigger engine
Cobra gains more armor from bulkhead upgrades
Cobra can carry better shield cell banks and hull reinforcements
Cobra turns better and is faster than a Viper even while weighed down
Armored Viper with one class 3 shield cell and stacked hull reinforcements has 545 armor and 754 total shield capacity
Armored Cobra with one class 4 shield cell and stacked hull reinforcements has 1320 armor and 824 total shield capacity while still being faster and more maneuverable than a completely unarmored Viper
And the icing on the cake? The Cobra has power left over for shield boosters if it wants. The Viper doesn't.

There was a lot debate about Viper vs Cobra before the DBS and Vulture came along and rendered the Viper completely obsolete.

This was probably the biggest test of relative combat capabilities: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=186804
Spoiler: Cobra defeats Viper acceleration advantage by flying backward

Literally the only people who defend the Viper are people who can't afford a DBS or better.

Yes but say goodbye to your shield booster

>>127422249

I've run two PAs before. I had to shut down life support when HPs are deployed in order to make it work though, so max 25 minutes in combat.

Not really practical for PVE but in PVP it'll surprise most opponents. I've taken out player ferdies with relative ease using that setup. By the time the realize they need to run the module splash from the PAs has killed their drives and half their other systems.

Hi edg.

I just got ED (not Horizons) on PC and I am really enjoying the look of what I can do. I managed to get in to the game but then did my usual panic and wanted to quickly dock again because I could see people waiting for me to kill me.

So imagine I am a chimp trying to play.
If you can please help with some advice on how to dock, where to go and look for stuff, anyone out there willing to take me under their wing and help guide me about and get started?

>hull+shields=total damage capacity
Not really much of a difference, considering more reliable dps of a viper.

>Cobra turns better
While standing still.

>bulkhead upgrades/hull reinforcements
Wich also increase it's mass and drift.

>stacking scb's
>on a cobra with it's shit shield
>after scb nerf
It will get alpha strike'd anyway, so you won't have anything to recharge.

>shield cell
>increases shield capacity
?

>while still being faster and more maneuverable than a completely unarmored Viper
That's straight up bullshit. You'll need to keep 4 pips in engine all the time, otherwise viper is faster and has better accel/decell and lat thrusters.

>tfw viper is still faster without hammering boost
>tfw smaller shape, more effective chaff
>tfw better hardpoint placement, higher constant dps
>tfw better acceleration, less drift

>>127422868
>Not really much of a difference, considering more reliable dps of a viper.

Then you run into a surprisebra with 2med rails and a pair of torpedo pylons thinking "who uses missiles?"

>While standing still.

Also in motion. Cobra has better turn rate at 0 pips and 4 pips, in or out of the blue zone

>Wich also increase it's mass and drift.

Negligible impact to its flight model given its base mass and C4 engine. Even completely loaded down with HRPs and military armor its mass is far below the optimal mark for the engines

>It will get alpha strike'd anyway, so you won't have anything to recharge
>2sml/2med
>alpha

lol right... If you're that worried about alpha from 2/2HPs then use another HRP or biweave, but that just makes the Cobra pull even further ahead

>better accel/decell and lat thrusters

Doesn't help in practice, and it has been practiced a lot. See >>127421950

This shit has been tested to death in-game since gamma. Viper loses between pilots of similar skill

See: Viper vs Cobra discussion
Who the fuck cares? People that matter fly FDL or Python anyway. People that can fly can outturn Vultures with a Conda. Who the fuck cares about ships that cost 300k? You use them for a few hours until you get a good ship, like Vulture.

1.Playing as pure trader in type 6 will crush your soul and mind.
2.Viper and DBS are only for combat, so you are basicly locked to pew-pew all the time.

Cobra is a low tier jack of all trades. the Dadmobile maymay wont change it.

Of course, You you lurk the forums and generals and You are "in the know" of how to make money fast, it gets obsolete pretty quick. But for me, a dude that dived into that game with no hand-holding and with a wishfull thinking that he can actually be fuckin Han Solo and tried to make a living soley on pre-sothis smuggling and piracy (yes I was stubborn) it was a fun ship.

You aim your mouse somewhere, accelerate and you fly at it. Then you just have thrusters to pretty much instantly move up/down/left/right.

If it's illegal where you're taking them, if you're scanned, yes you'll get a bounty, and probably a fairly hefty one too, since it's 87 of the fuckers. But yes, you can get scanned then turn in the mission and pay off the bounty, so long as the mission doesn't specify that getting scanned will fail the mission.

Alternatively you could skirt around the edge of wherever you're going till you line up with the entrance then scoot along in silent running mode. Grab yourself a heatsink, too. Careful not to fuck up and crash cause you could asplode without shields.

I just started and I'm really confused as to what I'm supposed to be doing right now. I've been flying around in super cruise scanning shit and trying to check out signal sources and stuff.

I've found a bunch of wanted dudes, but I can't interdict because I don't have the thing to do it.

Why do signal sources never turn out to be anything? And what should I be doing? Should I go pick up a mission from a statio or what? Somebody told me to hunt bounties from smaller ships around signal sources, but nothing is ever there.
>>
if you are looking for mobility and versatility in hardpoints, what ship should I look for? the faster the better

so far I'm looking at a FAS for future testing, currently flying a DBS in HiRES with a fixed 4x pulse setting for fun, don't care about vulture because I'd like to have more than 2 hardpoints so I can switch stuff around when I'm bored

what are the experiences with the FAS?
>>
>>127443083
you have to target it and drop out of hyperspace.
>>
>>127442497
It works against human players. If you're interdicted by a human, what you should do is silent running, fa off boost, turning back and boost again. That will make them lose you. Heat sinks are targetable and will show your position. Terrible if you're not within the visual limits
>>
>>127443270
That is literally exactly what I've been doing.

>drop within 400km

The only time I find anything or anyone is on a distress call. Last time, it looked like some dude blew himself up and left a bunch of cargo laying around.
>>
>>127443168
Tried it once. It was pretty durable, not very agile at all, and had enough firepower to lay most ships out.

If you're looking for something good, but don't want to cheese with a Vulture, you could do worse than the FAS.

>>127443382
>playing with humans

The FAS can utilize 5 weapons, 2 med points, 2 large points, and the ship itself. Its shields are absolute dog shit, but the hull itself was forged in the heart of a dying star. Decent hard point placement, and with proper equipment and handling can make for mad dashes, but its not a dog fighter. Using the FAS to the max requires getting used to toggling flight assist on and off for more tight maneuvers. Once you get used to that it can easily punch well above its weight class while taking relatively little damage.

Also, the thing is a guided projectile. Ram every goddamned thing with it. Wear the scraps of Anacondas like you are Buffalo Bill.

Fucking plebs here.

It's FUCKING easy to avoid scans at stations. Just align with the planet at your back, station in front of you during SC. Drop out right in front of the station mail slot.
Just boost in the mail slot with your Asp. No scan. FUCKING EASY!

Getting interdicted?
Submit and boost your way out of there and spool up FSD.
Authority interdicting you? Submit and do the same. You'll be out of range of there scanners.

You'll need: An Asp with A-rated thrusters/ power plant/power coupling.

Commanders, I hope you did your part and contributed to search of passenger vessel Antares that disappeared in 3251 as no humane person could just stand by while there are mission civilians out there.
Just think about it, commander, what horrors must passengers on board of that liner enure, they've been mission for 51 years now. I'm afraid if there are any survivors they had to commit acts of cannebalism to survive and so did their children, who were also born onboard of that God forgotten ship, drink their own unprocessed urin and endure horrid mutations due to lack of oxygen.

Wanna mine shit? Fucking uninstall and play something else, mining is the dumbest bullshit in this game currently and pays fucking garbage.

Wanna do powerplay shit? Its basically just a flavored theme of the above three, but yeah whatever. Can unlock some other specific areas to shoot other shit at I guess.

Wanna explore shit? Get in literally anything with a jump range past 20 and an advanced scanner and just go fucking anywhere it doesn't even matter. Expect to show back up in civilized space a week later and only make maybe 2m credits for all the 4 3 2 1 you've had to listen to.

What's stopping you from just abandoning the missions at Robigo and selling the slaves back to them. There's no fine as far as I'm aware, and I just did it since I got scanned.

kremain is a system near lhs 3447. like 2 jumps in a sidey. also res sites are in the rings of planets like saturn. They only show up on the right panel where you see stations when you get nearish them.

Yeah X is much closer since it's all trade and station building (one of them even had stock trading!)

My dream game would be Elite's local flight and combat insider X's world, X absolutely demonstrates the depth elite lacks

Tragically it won't be fixed because of the mmo element and of frontier's determination to never let the player have real influence lest the game gets elite style megagroups shitting on everyone else

Pretty similar to what I'm using and it's working out ok for me. I don't know if you need that many fuel tanks though. I just have the two 32T tanks and combined with a few quick passes of some of the stars throughout the trip whilst waiting for FSD cooldown it manages me fine. You could probably knock off the last 3 internal compartments at least but that's just my opinion.

>>
>>127466307
honestly the DBS is the best in its category

you can get better shields than the Viper with boosters, which you can actually mount because you have more U points, the same amount of dakka, better agility in a package that gets 420 armor with military armor

and you get 20+LY jump range even with full cargo hold

well worth the 500k over the Viper

I've made 2+million with it by bounty hunting in HiRES just today and at oen point even just held my own in a frontal engagement against a Clipper

I know the DBE turns less but dat large hardpoint tho

Wouldn't mind if they came with all the features ready in addition to the promise of future support like actual mmo/always online game (i.e. diablo 3) expansions

Instead it just feels like you're paying for content patches to be continued with no real guarantee of what you're going to get.

Hilariously this is backfiring for them, at least in my case, I'm not getting Horizons at full price because I have no fucking idea what the expansion will actually contain when it's finished and the next one is released

Right now I don't give one shit about planetary landing so they've lost my sale by having no other major selling point

>>127467623
Pirates are an irritation, but generally a hell of a lot more preferable to security. System authority are an absolute ass. It's all scripted though so you can generally just guage it by what you see it the messages window. When I see red sys auth messages I ensure that I don't let them get behind me and try to jump out of that system as soon as possible. The safest thing to do is try to avoid interdiction at all costs, and if you ever see interdiction detected, kill the process. The second safest is to always submit to interdiction, then boost away and jump out, but doing that without sheilds can be a bit of a risk when it comes to pirates. Also sys auth like to drop in whilst pirates are attacking, which can cause them to literally spawn right in front of you and be completely unavoidable. A lot of it is up to preference, you might decide it's worth having a cheap sheild module for insurance against pirates, or you might be comfortable without one.

Where does Robigo get all these slaves anyway. You'd think, being an isolated mining facility in deep space, that they'd need slaves transported to them, not the other way around, let alone such vast quantities of them. Is it some kind of breeding platform? And what's more, who is willing to pay 2-5 million credits for for simply trasporting a dozen or half dozen slaves? Considering that delivery would only be a small percentage of the actual sale price, that would mean each individual slave is worth as much as 10,000,000 Credits. Who is paying that much for slaves and what exactly is special about these slaves that they would be worth so much money?
I personally can only think of one kind of slave that anyone would pay so much for, and also one that would require such effort to conceal from the authorities.
