Elite: Dangerous General
Why are we still here edition

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

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

Particle accelerator or don't bother mounting a huge weapon.
If you don't want to get huge you can just stick another laser on it.

>>121347584
Viper, alternatively iEagle if you want to grind some empire standings.
>>
>>121347863
Because there is no game.
Stop making this thread, we die after 24 posts anyway. Just wait until the new patch or the expansion drops and we have something to talk about.

I did it, /edg/! I've grinded enough to get a Python! PRAISE THE VISION!

However, I've only got about 14m left over after I purchase the 56mil credit ship, so should I go ahead and buy or hold off until I can afford to outfit it better?
>>
>>121362472
Look out for a discount system. Use google and forums
>>
>>121362472
Wait until you have 70m at least.

Also buy that shit in lembava the ship has a 15% discount there
>>
>>121363518
I'm wanting word from Python owners. I just want to know if they've had success in combat while piloting a somewhat under-fitted one. My current ship is a Vulture, but it's getting boring.

If google/forums is the solution, why even come here? What's the point?

>>121363816
More grinding, then. Fuck.

This is not new. Star density in ED doesn't rise or fall smoothly but in huge cubical chunks.
One system it's normal and in another it's fuckton of stars everywhere.
This cube is an artefact of that process.

Some forumdads go out on a limb and claim that it's ED's representation of globular clusters THAT ARE NOWHERE TO BE FOUND IN THIS REALISTIC 1:1 SCALE MODEL OF MILKY WAY GALAXY.
>>
I've made it to Sagittarius A. It was a super long a boring experience
And now I have to get back, I'll have to ride all the way back again. I don't want to do this, it's boring as fuck. But I can't just suicide because all this progress, time spent would be wasted and the last time I've been on a space station was about 1 /12 months ago, so if I continue in same pace it will take me another 1 1/2 months to get back. I really don't know what to do.
>>
>>121364354
take the journey back, you'll make at least 100m if you were out that long and actually scanned shit i'm sure, if you really waanted to just go back you could not bother with scanning shit on the return, but thats just wasted money, cut your time in half though
>>
>>121364696
Yeah you're right, I have to make it back. I'll probably just take shortest way possible. Doubt I'll make 100mil though, didn't scan that much but I found at least 7-8 earth like planets
>>
>>121363972
It's a bit cancerous if you don't have A rated engines but for the rest is OK.

Also anon don't grind, become a pirate and earn cash during the Cg's like I do.
>>
>>121362472
>>121363972
I bought a Python with so little money I had to strip out the stock fittings to afford three large pulses. It was fine, but less combat efficient than my Vulture.

It's fine, basically.
>>
Whats best outfitting for mining/trading in a cobra?
Also is there a reason i get interdicted every other time i jump now? Ive only failed at evading twice out of 2 dozen times, but damn its annoying.
>>
Think we'll ever get bigger jump ranges?
>>
Just found a spinning star. Holy shit it scared the shit out of me
>>
>>121367756
I wish there was something akin to Mass Effect's Mass Relays that could transport you greater distances with a single jump.

Getting to Bow-Tie is gonna be difficult, the stars are so far apart around it

I hit a dead end the way i went so i have to loop back around towards NGC 7822 and move down to where stars are more clustered and follow that till im below it and then move up to it, shit is annoying
>>
>>121369854
That'd be real neat. Like an express line in inhabited space. Would probably never happen because the dads would realize how much of their life they've lost in SC.

>6m credits to kill 30 pirates in one system
who else /elite/ here?
>>
>>121373337
How do you find pirates?
>>
>>121373421
Pirates are ships that scan you for cargo and demand it. Nav beacons, RES, etc.
>>
>>121370017
Hello there carebear
>>
>>121374543
Super cruise is boring and unnecessary. Why not use the FSD to make microwarps to in-system locations? Then we could do cool shit like plot our own jump coordinates, and retards could accidentally microwarp to the center of a planet and die and then bitch on the forums
>>
For PvE Bounty Hunting with a Vulture do you use double L Pulse Laser?

I'm in a Viper now and I liked the Laser for Shields, kinetic for hull setup it has going.
>>
>>121375412
So you can avoid pirates? Go back to solo
>>
>>121375412
This would entail redoing the way the map works in Elite and we all know that will never happen
>>
>>121375792
Because it's boring. Are you blind or are you just retarded?
>>
>>121375412

I'd prefer Super Cruise if it just autojumped to your location.
you could pull it out of auto-pilot, but if you don't then once it jumps it steers to the destination and drops out of jump when you're there.
>>
Do i need a special module to carry collector limpets or can i just fill cargo space with them?
>>
>>121376507

They just go in the cargo hold, you just need the module that deploys them.
>>
I wanna make this my home
>>
>>121375412
It ticks me off because it doesn't have to be boring. Spaceflight is more straightforward mechanics-wise than driving a truck but FD hasn't done anything to remedy that aside from spawn murder-hungry Vipers to annoy you sometimes.

>jump to star
>4 stations orbiting a smaller star 100,000ls away

Why not just put the nav beacon at the smaller star?

i dont know what FDs reasoning for this is but I assume theres some complicated explaination that boils down to muh realism. I like an amount of realism but i just want to shoot space lasers
>>
>>121384050
Iirc, the logic is that you jump to the object with the highest mass in that system. Thing is, I'm pretty sure I've jumped into systems where that is not the case
>>
>>121384050
>you can exceed c
>realism
>>
>>121385787
I mean I knew this already but this game clearly shows that even if humanity could travel at the speed of light we would be able to explore only bare minimum anyway. We defiantly need an alternative way of travel if we want to get anywhere.
>>
>>121374543
>>121375792
Oh no, not pirates how will I eve-
oh wait, I'm flying around a combat Python.

It's just boring senpai, that's all there is to it. It's a fucking giant waste of time and I don't even trade so I have it pretty easy.

I think you overestimate the 'average' pirate.
