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 is best left alone until you have a Vulture or better.

The only saving grace for the Keelback is that the flavor text for it says that it can carry a fighter on it, so atleast if they ever release the update to allow big ships to carry small ships, you can use the Keelback as a budget taxi or hobo carrier.

Why the fuck does the Asp Scout even exist. As if the fucking Explorer wasn't a piece of shit enough as it is.

I don't understand how people deal with PowerPlay. I really, really don't understand how people can devote their entire game time to working powerplay and grinding merits for the piss poor rewards. Even from a fucking RP perspective, you get no feedback from what you're doing other than your blob will MAYBE expand or stay the same next week.
>>
>>128632723
If you want to do powerplay even remotely serious you need to sign up for reddit, join dad groups, join their RP groups after enough harassment, do soul-crushing trade routes timed perfectly to the merit regen, stare at spreadsheets, spend 10 hours MINIMUM on the game, and generally just sell your soul to braben.
But at that point, maybe, just maybe you'll have contributed 10-20% to conquering a system and you can feel a little bit better about yourself, maybe.

Just got the Viper MkIV for my bounty hunting obsession. Now bounty hunting isn't satisfying my upgrade greed. What do?

>>128654730

I have hope that they will drop some LSD or something and have a moment of enlightenment and realize that they need to drop the PilotsFed rank requirements and that each minor faction needs to have their own individual set of 4-10 missions so that you have quite a bit to choose from, depending on what is going on in the system. But of course this is Ftroop we're talking about so they'll probably keep everything the way it is, just add some pretty randomly generated faces to go with the bugged missions.

Python's and FDL's are ez mode, they don't even get a hit in.

Been testing out random ships for the hell of it. With the limited amount of ships this game has, FD need to seriously flesh out the advantages and drawbacks of each one.

>Why do you think that exploration should be so profitable as smuggling?
It has to do with incentivization. In game design, you have to figure out how to properly motivate a player into participating in, or accomplishing a task you set in front of them, they way you usually do this is by offering either ingame rewards or fun. The problem with exploration is that the incentives don't make it worthwhile versus other tasks in the game on a reward/time spent basis. Exploration is a huge time investment, but the reward you get for that investment is paltry compared to other tasks available in game, especially considering that those tasks take considerably less time.That's not to say that Exploration should make as much as other professions, given it's relative safety, but it's rewards should be much higher than for the investment it takes.

TL;DR: Exploration isn't worth the time, and if you explore, you're basically shooting yourself in the foot.

tl;dr of game design rant

Exploration is low risk ergo low reward

Smuggling is high risk high reward
>>
>>128669267
Except that's an oversimplification. We're not dealing with just risk and reward, there's also time investment, there's a reason why the viability of a task in ED is often measured in Cr/H. The problem with Exploration is that it's low risk/low reward/ high time investment, similar to mining, while you have things like trading, which is low risk/high reward/low time investment. ED's amount of risk is also entirely fucked up which exacerbates the problem, Smuggling is only high risk because the game arbitrarily send goon squad of magic authority vessels out to hunt you, which is easily countered by just killing you're game process or pointing your ass toward the sun, Smuggling is also only high reward if you're doing something like the Robigo Run, which obviously wasn't intended by the devs, so as intended, smuggling is intended high risk but actually low risk/ low reward/ low time investment, which sounds pretty fucked up to me.

I disagree with you a lot but I'm going to try to not write a novella as a response. Forgib if I do, fampai.

>Exploration is that it's low risk/low reward/ high time investment

Yes, because in a given second your chances of being fucked up are very low. So of course it takes a long time to get paid reasonably. You're not doing anything illegal, you're far from players and NPC spawns, etc.


> low risk/high reward/low time investment

Yes, it takes less time because in a given second your odds of being fucked up are a lot higher. You're fighting players or NPCs for loot, or illegally salvaging, and it only takes a couple seconds for a fed to scan you or a player to bump you outside the station and the whole run was for nothing.

I agree about the Robigo run but I disagree that smuggling is low risk/low reward, I think it's pretty high risk wherever you choose to do it and the reward is reasonable because it doesn't take much to git gud at hitting the mail slot quickly and coldly. Why do you think it's currently low/low?

Holy shit I have never been confused for a dad and I am quite offended. I put urban camo on my Cobra and skulls and I fly around all day near the starting systems and fuck up other players in decidedly less agile ships. I am by no means defending exploration. It sucks cock. I think we totally misunderstood each other anon.

>>128671446
>Yes, because in a given second your chances of being fucked up are very low. So of course it takes a long time to get paid reasonably. You're not doing anything illegal, you're far from players and NPC spawns, etc.
My point was is that the amount of reward you get for the amount time you invest isn't proportional. If you're going to have a low risk task in a game that takes a long time, you need to make sure that the rewards you give for that task are proportional to the amount of time it takes. Exploration is worth fuck all right now as pointing out by mister "I made 200 million in a week exploring" where he could have just done the similarly low risk task of trading and made the same amount in a quarter of the time.

> low risk/high reward/low time investment
This was referring to trading. Smuggling right now is obviously not how the devs intend it to work, though the way they want it to work is actually much worse, and honestly I think the rewards you get for regular smuggling are basically garbage considering the risk unless you're doing bulk illegal trading.

Here's how it's done. You go to Robigo (Or Fehu if you're Empire) and run one mission. Now you'll have enough to A fit a Cobra if you use the Oriental discount. Now go back and load up on missions. Complete then without spazzing out and you'll have enough to A fit your DBS.

Keep doing this. By the end of the day, you'll have an A grade long jump Asp to make the runs easier plus two of whatever your favorite mid tier ships are

No it's not. No ship in this game has a damage model. The ships do have damage visuals though, in that the ship will look different once it's damaged enough, but this has no gameplay bearing, only visual.

Space Engineers has a damage model; when a missile hits or a ship rams another ship a big, gaping hole gets torn. You can't target the pylon on an Imperial Clipper and blow the nacelle off in that manner.

Hey newbie in the Eagle

Ignore the robigo stuff for now.

Find a system with ringed planets, go there and look for "Resource Extraction Sites" or RES, go into any one of them that doesn't say "Hazardous"

Follow the local space police around while they fly around shooting at wanted NPCs and get the last few hits off on the wanted NPC before it explodes and you'll collect the full bounty.

Once you work up enough money from that then you can buy something to haul slaves from Robigo once you're comfortable with quitting to system menu or force killing the game process to avoid the bullshit NPC spawns to stop you from smuggling slaves.
>>
>>128675498

sadly, yes considering that every faction is the exact same. the only difference is that anime club class president girl has more members, so obviously she will be a bigger threat.

just use your imagination anon and imagine that those clippers flying around spouting reddit memes and MUH PRINCESS are actually hardened, iron-skinned pirates that are out to destroy the peaceful ecosystem of eravate.

No ships have damage models. The Anaconda has a damage MESH which means after the ship takes a certain amount of damage it will look different. This doesn't affect you as a player at all, and there is no way to damage one area aesthetically but not another, you get "hurt" the same no matter how or where you get hurt.

Data pricing doesn't scale. Surface scanners double the value but take a bit to scan. Advanced scanner scans the whole system, look at the system map and see if anything looks good. Scan what does with the detailed scanner.

It is quite horrible to select only few type of stars in filters and struggle to see them as their 'radius' dot seems to be low.

Also, I noticed a "field of view" sphere on galaxy map, that no matter how much you zoom off, you won't be able to display the stars after that sphere. Is there a way to change that?

Also, can't colours be changed on filter map? it seems like a nightmare color choice for some filter selection.

Or, is there any 3rd party tools for a better galaxy map than what we have?

Why the fuck do the "dogfighter" ships in this game control like a pile of wet cake? I wanted to pilot a fast little ship that could do everything the launch trailer shows. But there is just straight up no ships like that in game.

I really want to like this game, i really do. But fuck the combat is boring as hell.
>>
>>128735987
>I wanted to pilot a fast little ship that could do everything the launch trailer shows.

That's because the trailer lies. It lies blatantly. That is not how actual combat looks like in the game at all.

You were tricked.

I'm a bit new to this game. When do you see other players? Most of the time while I'm out doing quests and such and landing in ports, I can' find another singe player. I seriously doubt they put players in different instances. Chances are that its just because the world is so big.

Either way, I'm just curious. Is there a way to see/interact with players more? I mean the first time a bandit tried to rob me, I didn't realize it was a NPC. I tried talking to it and talking my way out of being robbed...
>>

>I seriously doubt they put players in different instances. Chances are that its just because the world is so big.

It's both.

Also the game is not really built to be multiplayer.
>>
>>128736661
It's both poor instancing and space being too fucking big.

ELITE originally only had about fifty colonized systems, I have no idea why they decided to go the way they did with the already shitballs instancing. I see like 1-2 people per hour around primetime unless I head to Sol or Robigo.

>>128736601
Yes and if it is it's not listing itself, I don't normally have to be right on a planet for bases to show up in the nav menu,
>>
>>128736975
Yeah, the planet has to be in "explored" status to see its ports on the nav panel. But if you have it at least "unexplored" (pinged by a discovery scanner) you can locate it through the system map.

I think >>128737327
is right though cause there is an unexplored, do I need to pick up a scanner or can I just go to the planet and it'll pop up for me?
>>
>>128738532

Yep, definitely a planetary port. I'm not sure at what range they pop up, though. Contrast space-borne ports, which broadcast their location throughout the whole system.

Would be interesting if you had to physically locate it on the planet's surface and drop out of orbital cruise on it before it shows up in nav/contacts.

Most ports are big enough that you can make them out from orbital cruise like 50KM up.
>>
>>128738962
Yeah I just need to find the planet now, the one unexplored that was up is a star so i gotta get a scanner and ping around the system I guess.

I'll probably not even find it before I go to bed but at the very least I can sell the 52 things I got for some profit and I outfitted my hauler slightly better.

Isnt the vote almost equally split between people who do and dont want player guilds/clans/factions?

Not that it matters since any meaningful player guild interaction would be shot in the foot since you have open/solo/group shared universes. It'll never happen other than begging devs to add your faction in so you can do endless BB missions for them for MUH RP

If you really want to piss off dads, organize in a group server or solo to flip the BGS against faction faggots like Adle's Armada in Eravate. You can easily do this by just killing authority ships and doing pirate missions

Its fun if you don't go in expecting CoD in space, play No Mans Sky or SC if you want a more fast paced space game.

The fact the dad meme exists is proof enough its a sim, older people prefer that kind of game.

>>128775817
I wonder what a space sim could possible be simulating or are you going to go down the autist route of "it can't be a sim as space travel doesn't exist!"

It has real scale everything, a sim flight model, sim gameplay of flying around repeating activities, its literally marketed as a sim and a sim playerbase but nah, its an arcade game. Were you dropped on your head as a child a lot?
>>
>>128776327
>sim flight model

but it doesn't

>waaah my games aren't supposed to be fun
>>
>>128776327
>It has real scale everything
That's irrelevant for it being a sim. Even then more than 80% of ED galaxy is made out bullshit. The rest 20% is the m trying to repreesent real data and fail. Where's Phobos/Deimos? Where's Eris? Where's mass transfer? Where are the Roche lobes? Where are the gas/dust accretion rings?

>a sim flight model
That's incorrect. Even FAoff is arcadey. Try bostinging in straight line in FA off . You will lose speed.

>sim gameplay of flying around repeating activities
That's how every game could be explained. GTA 5 is a sim then. Battlefield is a sim then.

>its literally marketed as a sim and a sim playerbase
Nowhere it's marketed as a sim. You have any factual proofs of it's sim playerbase? I doubt that, Pecisk.

>I wonder what a space sim could possible be simulating
Try Orbiter and wonder no more.

>>128777368
could it be that "space sim" has a different meaning from "simulation game"?

nah, impossible
>>
>>128777425
Could be, but that daddio above called ED a study sim.

"Space sim" in general is just a marketing buzzword, meaning you get to fly a spaceship with a space backdrop.

Just stay in a vulture if all you do is combat, alternatively get a FDL instead of Python. Weaker hull, better shields, actually designed for combat and not the "multi-purpose" meme.

>>
>>128801318
Vulture for short term.
>>
>>128801318
RES: Vulture
Explore: Diamondback Scout, also good for a bit of RES farming.
Trade: Asp Explorer
Robigo Smuggle: Asp Explorer or Hauler, bring fuel tanks for Hauler. Wont be able to carry as much as the Asp but its a good way to get your foot in the door with it without having to jump to 20 different stations.
>>
>>128801778
Or long term if you like it. I upgraded from one to a FDL, but I went back to vulture. I miss the maneuverability of it whenever I fly something else. Also pythons are good if you don't want to zoom around. Just tank the hits and fire back.
>>
>>128797489
Go wreck him.
>>
>>128799940
You can only ever have 8 tonnes of it, if you have more than 8 it will never resupply as its a rare commodity, when you go to buy more after delivering it the stock is completely random. To get it to refill if you can only buy 4 or 5 despite not having any more just jump to supercruise and go back inside.
>>
>>128799940
probably every day at midnight just like frontier

except it's real days now
>>
>>128763479

This is how missiles used to work:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ps-GaRpDZfQ

Unsurprisingly, that led to people lying in wait around stations in disposable missileboat Eagles to unload their racks at passing players, pretty much guaranteeing a kill on anything smaller than an Anaconda because 18 rapid-fired dumbfires are unaffected by ECM and will overwhelm point defence.

All they had to do was give them a re-fire delay like every other weapon in the game, but ftroop isn't capable of doing anything sensible.

>>128804317

If you were able to pull that off in a Sidewinder, you'll be a magician in a Vulture. Grab one of those.

You didn't have the data yet. You meet some NPC in space at the appointed time (it's real-time in GMT), he gives you the data, you bring it back to the station.
