>Where do I buy x module/weapon for my ship?
High-tech systems have the best inventory, look there. The higher population the better.

>What's this RES you guys talk about?
Resource Extraction site. Spawns pirates and space cops that shoot each other. HAZRES is best left alone until you have a Vulture or better.

Whenever i interdict people in open they don't text me back and always just try to escape, when all they really have to do to have their life spared is to comply.
Why would you even play open if you dont want any kind of interaction?

It is so fucking annoying how while bounty hunting you can get a bounty on your head because a stupid ass law or civ ship crashes into you and they end up dying later

>>127724729
The powerplay overview thing rates each faction by their position. 1-10.

Don't bother. It really does not matter.

Pick space trump or A-something Lavigny Duval because they both give a cash bonus to bounty hunting.

Or if you're some kind of faggot who only wants to be a space trucker, Edmund I think it is gives trading bonuses.

Powerplay is a really fucking pointless "battle" and only worth it for the cash bonuses.

So, i am with a bit of dilema...mainly being:
Should i hunt in Controlled Lavigny RES sites with common reserves [the only ones that is controlled and is not depleted as of right now is common.]
Or bounty hunt in Major reserves, but exploited systems by Lavigny? would the 20% bonus in a common reserve surpass the juicer bounty of a major RES?
Getting the rank 2 bonus when the cycle ends, so for me it appears that Major sites with 50% [since apparently she will be Rank 1 when the cycle ends] with bigger bounties seens more profitable than 70% with a decent one, but i may be wrong and would like some insight of a experienced Lavigny bounty hunter

Quick question. how the fuck You guys deal with Authority interdictions? I dont have problems with the long voyage evasion ("hug the sun and 3,2,1,) but in the destination systems the are unbearable. I tried dodging them, but bot APS and Python are so slow heap of junk that my interdiction evasionis success is like 30%. after that i know all the tricks like hardpoint deplyoment kill process etc, but those fags alwys get me after 4-5 th destination port. Is there anything more that I should know, or I just have to git gud?

Normally, an A-rated Asp can sustain boost until FSD is recharged easily. Boosting when SCAN DETECTED usually gets you out of scanner range. If you want some extra security that the scan doesn't go through, target the SysAuthority and deploy hardpoints, that will have him cease the scan as well.

If all else fails, kill process.

Also when smuggling into a station, make sure you drop out of SC right in front of the station, this can be done by facing it directly, with the planet it orbits at your back.

I forgot to mention reloading took more than 15 minutes. If we exclude this, that should be 7.5m/h without soul crushing grind. Keep in mind that ALD/Hudson pledges make twice the amount.

>>127758352
>If anyone to fault for griefing it would be the devs because they've allowed it with their game mechanics

I have to agree. Games without rules work brilliantly if you play with people that you know.
Put strangers into the mix, and suddenly you will find people like me for example, who genuinely enjoy to put up traps for other players, may it be by the use of the environment or by playing an ambush-style character. It's not because I'm a sadist or hate people. People like >>127758683 are notorious for misunderstanding why people like me do this. The truth is, we do it for the kick. When you engage another player and don't know what you are dealing with, you feel an addicting rush of adrenaline. And you want that rush again, and again. It gets weaker the more experienced you get, but until then you have tons of experience with pvp now and don't care about doing anything else anymore.
Griefing in a video game is like calling your sister a name she hates. She gets all mad, you have a quick laugh. She might remember it forever, for you it was just another moment of sibling love.
Always ask yourself: Why are you the griefed one, and not them?
>>
>>127761008
You want me to weekly grind pp so I can then autistily kill mobs mmo style for far less money then Robigo, which is bs, but at least gives you decent profit ?

>>
>>127761725
Not the same "dude" but you can make close to 18 mln/h with a decent fitted ASP.
If you evade all interdictions or submit and run, and you're able to consistently run into the mailbox without getting scanned you're up for mad dosh.
It's not even frustrating after a while and you don't need to farm a faction.
Also i personally find RES farming boring because you have to get the right instance to do anything and i don't find killing npcs any more fun than being chased by spess dindus.

1. They are shit at making cars
2. They used to drive last time 30 years ago and many of them think that if the original Ford was the best car idea ever made and adding automatic transmission or air conditioning will ruin the car.

Considering the way the stations are designed. The central areas of the stations (where you land) would be loading/unloading/industrial areas. Most of your residential and commercial areas would likely fall into the outer areas of the station where the simulated gravity from centrifugal force would be most effective.

For future reference shield mass values are based on hull mass only. Lightening a ship by selling internals won't let you mount a smaller shield if you couldn't already.

I'm a salefag, so still pretty new/poor. When's the soonest I can get out of this retarded Robigo farming and still actually be able to farm something close to comparable?.. how much dosh do I need for like, mining/trading/bounty hunting to be close to as profitable as this retarded immersion breaking and full of bullshit smuggling?

It's too bad, because I wanted to be a smuggler even before knowing about Robigo... but smuggling seems to be the most half assed aspect of the game the devs did.

Smuggling makes more money in the short term. Bounty Hunting makes more money in the long term. Unfortunately I don't want to wait 5 weeks to get a 50 million bonus every week.

But yeah, you just described the absolutely terrible system + RNG this game throws at its players. Last I checked, smuggling is all about stealth, not meeting the cops every five fucking minutes and FD doesn't understand that.

Sitting in a Viper MkIII and working on some RES farms. I'm at 12 million and my initial goal was to wait for 60mil and buy a Python... but I feel like I need an upgrade along the way.

Should I get something different or just keep saving up for Python?

Someone posted this as bug on the forums, seem to remember Fdev saying they'd look into it...
>>
>>127808034
Yeah it's obviously scripted but I just wish they at least kept it to populated systems

Authorities chasing down smugglers is cool
Authorities being in every fucking unpopulated system a smuggler might move through isn't

Its kind of cool for the unpopulated systems that are a jump or two from a populated system as if its an anti-smuggling taskforce or something but in buttfuck nowhere its dumb

Now I feel sad, remembering the sense of wonder playing through Freespace 2 the first time. Getting lost in the fog while your sensors are shitting themselves or shooting down capship missiles to save your own carrier.
>>
>>127810512
what if this is Thargoid activity?
maybe the malfunctions actually replicate the station using some wibbly-woobly magic?
or maybe they're so uncompetent that they cant fix something after almost 4 months.

Pick them up. If they're illegal, dump them, if not, take them to a station and sell them. Unless you're an edgelord then pick them up regardless and sell them on the black market.
>>
>>127809303

I haven't seen a space station actually in the planet's ring before, but I've seen a few stations that had their orbit ring pass through... so presumably at some point they would be right in the middle of the ring.

They're in cryosleep, they can sit there for 1000 years and be fine and the pods have a beacon on so rescue one will eventually turn up.

What do you think the slave trading criminal underworld does with people in a tin? I'm aware its just a game but its fun to rp a bit

Yeah but thats an issue with the engine, lorewise the pods just get rescued when you're not looking

SC fan here in peace.

When will this game allow you to walk around inside ships? They don't have to be manevuering while you do it like in SC, but its all I want to do.

Soon™

Unknown, presumably not SOON™.
>>
>>127814036
lorewise? if you say so man. I prefer to think you are killing people because refuse to sully yourself with slavery kek.

>>127814404
Other people say soon but I say never.
>>
>>127814404
>>127814579

When will the game let you walk around in your ship, and have a waifu/husbando to share some quality time with for those long exploration missions? If I'm going hundreds of light years away from civilization, I want a fuckable co-pilot.

why
>>
>>127814824
It wouldn't make sense that you were killing people, they're in cryosleep and tbqh I'd rather die in cryosleep than be a non-imperial slave. its probably kinder to just put a few rounds into them incase rescue one never turns up.
>>
>>127814945
Never, the most you'll ever be able to do is shuttle people around and/or kidnap forum dads and hold them hostage.
Also maybe have the man turrets

Thanks guys
Will try it out if I can find one relatively near my system
This RES spot is by far the best I've found and it looks buggy as fuck which is amazing
>>
>>127813812
The devs wrote a big forum post a few years ago about cargo decay using slaves as an example but it's a feature that's not in the game nor has it been mentioned since.

You're being harsh on non imperial slavery aka free slavery. I think that is a little unfair anon. Slavers are kind people.

Free slavery is actually a good deal.

Many pilots' are tired of a life of grind and misery. Simply look at this thread. They can trade that for a great a rather generous opportunity of free unregistered slavery. You don't even have to sign your name anon. No paperwork. No tedious thinking for yourself. No failed ambitions and tedious grind towards monetary dreams. You won't need a cent. You'll be given food and board and a task to do. What more can you ask for anon? If you're troubled by your negative thoughts, worry no longer, you'll be kept busy with you assigned task. You'll meet plenty of people, yet won't have to or be allowed to speak to any of them. Such an opportunity anon!

And instead you would rather die in you sleep in the cold void of space? That's troubling friend. I think you should head down to your nearest black market and click the button that says I WANT TO SELL MYSELF INTO SLAVERY. That's it, that's all you have to do anon. And you too can experience a life without money problems or failed ambitions.

Alternatively if you can't find a black market you can request the clear save gang take all your worldly possessions. They live in the options menu. And will offer you a new lease on life, free you from your worldly burdens.

Positivity anon. You need it.
