these players will have less than they had before the incident?

Not sure how did you end up with that conclusion.
From the text in the news story:
reset themselves to their pre-credit-refund state

It was their fuckup and not the users fault. so now everyone suffers because of it.
I don't follow.
How does everyone suffer because some people that got rich for no reason gets their bank account reset?

This exact same thing happens in real life too, in fact I ones had like 300 grand deposited onto my bank account by accident where the bank fucked up and someone's mortgage was put onto my account.
Was the bank supposed to write that off as their fuck up and let me spend it all?

I just love that fact that a game can generate this type of planning/discussion/collaboration outside the game itself.

No shit.
Now I am looking at getting a second monitor so I don't have to write down/print out and keep these trade routes laying around

No big surprise there. They haven't produced anything too good in recent years.
Autosport was fun for a bit but the F1 games they release are just copies of previous years. Still uses the Grid 1 game engine.
Anyways best of luck to them, hope those that got let go find a job quickly.

Docking computer!!!!??? Wtf? For shame...
I was using docking computer out of lazyness
How fast does it dock? I might consider it if docked really quickly.
It isn't the fastest, but it is a set and forget kind of thing. I don't have to look for the landing pad etc.
I can sometimes manually dock faster sometimes slower. Flying without a shield, it would make sense to use one than don't have to worry about making a mistake and bumping into something.

Thanks for the info I have my Cobra all setup and I am enroute to the first station to load up on goodies.
I will try this after work today, and see how much I can make.
Flying without guns and shield makes me a bit nervous though

Note that rare trade runs you need to sell them about 150ly apart for maximum profit.

Yep I know, so usually buy and sell at every second stations.

MrTact any particular reason why you are using a Cobra instead of a Type 6?

Sounds good thanks for the info
In that thread you linked there are some shorter runs as well I am going to give one of those a try tomorrow.
I have the Cobra almost the way yours is except I have a docking computer instead of the fuel scoop.
I will swap that out.

My Cobra is setup with 52t of cargo space and it's not quite enough for the 11 stop loop. I sometimes can't fit all the rares. It's on the boring side, but it gets you the cash.

I'm working on cleaning the loop up some. Three of the stops are more than 100 lys apart, so you can't plan a full length station to station route. If I managed to get it fixed I'll let you know.
Thanks I'd appreciate it.
Also what is your cobra setup like? I assume you have no weapons or shield fitted.

Well got a Hauler, upgraded the FSD and got rid of shield and everything. Have 24ly jump range and still can not get to the rare goods systems. Not a single one of them.
Not sure what else I can do

Yeah I am saving up for the ASP, pretty far away though. My Cobra is around 1.5 mill with the upgrades and have another 500,000 in the bank, so I am far away from flying one yet.

Looked into some trade runs last night but they pay peanuts compare to combat. I can not get to where the rare goodies are, just don't have enough jump distance.
Buy a Hauler, upgrade the FSD and do some shieldless rare runs. It won't be long before you have enough to replace the Hauler with a Corba as a trader and then the money will flow. Still have my original Sidewinder, sold the Hauler when I upgraded to the Corba. According to the stats page I've spent 2.3 M on outfitting, and I have 6.2 M in the bank, I've had the game since 1/1.

This reddit post has links for a big spreadsheet of rare locations, a 30 stop rare loop and 11 stop rare loop.
Thanks I have a Cobra now, but I may sell all my upgrades to get the kick ass FSD so I can get to the rare stations

They gotta fix their flight model, it fucking sucks. I dont care what technology is in the future if you bank left you expect the vehicle to bank left, not do some weird strafe/arc/roll maneuver. Horrible.

If you're referring to Elite, that's an actual checkbox in the settings. It's called like bank into roll or something like that. By default it should be off.
He was referring to SC

Some idiot sidewinder interdicted me, then parked directly in front of me yelling at me to drop my cargo. Two seconds later he was dust.

Those sidewinder pilots are a fearsome bunch I tell ya
