Yeah, for whatever reason the D grade items have less mass. So if you are doing an exploration ship and want maximum jump capability stock up on those.

I have the cannons and lasers on separate triggers in the same fire group, but usually I'm firing both at the same time. I am considering putting them on the same trigger.

Yeah, my selection was based partly on your advice. Oh, and it may have been fun -- but I upgraded my life support after that adventure.

I was flying a Corba with two Class 2 Gimballed Multi-cannons and two Class 1 Gimballed Pulse Lasers.

Well, I've managed to get up to a rank of Squire in the Empire, but I'm still Neutral -- weird.

Got missions to kill renegade Generals, both were in Clippers. The first time I smoked him with no problem. Second time I think I was a bit cocky and did a poor job of getting and staying behind him. Thought I was dead for sure, was on emergency oxygen and half my canopy was gone. Managed to hyper back to the system I came from, landed in the dock with 32 seconds of oxygen left. Frankly, it was the most fun I'd had in the game to date.

So, just to be safe I loaded up a shield bank and went back after the second General. I did use the shield bank once, partly because I just wanted make sure I understood how to use it. But I pretty much smoked him the second time. Not sure if I was really that sloppy the first time on the second General or if the AI just wimped out on me 2 out of 3 times.

*ugh* the colors I see on the http://arkku.com/elite/hud_editor/ editor didn't match what I saw in the game This is going to be even more difficult that I thought.

Okay found this which has several setups. Also, my configuration folder (FORC-FDEV-D-1010) was under

C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Local\Frontier_Developments\Products

not in the

C:\Program Files (x86)\Frontier\EDLaunch

folder

Go here to try out various color schemes -- frankly, I haven't been able to find one I really like.

Okay, I decided to try working on my Empire reputation thinking I might buy a Clipper some day and I have a couple of questions.

1. Is there someplace specific I should be looking for the rep. jobs? I seem to spend as much time flying around looking for them as doing them.

2. Most of them seem to be for the local system Empire faction, does that count to the "Empire" itself or not?

And as a comment, it sure would be nice if the faction displays and awards were more precise. I have no idea if I need to do 100 of these things or 10,000...

First, having a 3A fuel scoop on a Cobra rocks. Second, am I missing something or is there no way to move all your ships to a different location? Seems like there should be a way to "buy passage" to other systems within a reasonable distance, say 100 ly. That way you could relocate to another system.

Is there anything I can fit on there that shoots backwards when I am turning my back to the enemy?
Point Defence Turret does this, maybe?

So, is there a consensus on the pros and cons of Viper vs Corba as a fighting ship?

Given the purpose of the site, an assumption of games seems reasonable.

Are you saying you arm your transport to the max? That might be viable on a Asp or Clipper, but on a Type 6 you are wasting your money, unless the pirate is a total novice with lousy weapons, you are going to lose.

It would be nice if they made a "pvp" flag -- that way if you want to be involved in player on player action you can. If not, you are safe from attacks. Then just set non-pvp to be handled like solo. Although I got interdicted a lot more often when I tried playing solo than I have in open play. At least to this point...

As I said in the other topic, I like that the route planner is going to allow longer routes, I just hope they manage decrease the time it takes to plot them. Currently a 900 ly route would take a LONG TIME to fill in...

Yeah, I'm not ready to give up on open play, yet. That was the first time I've been killed by another player and I have certainly been around quite a bit. Time will tell, but if I start getting killed "too often" (whatever that turns out to be) I'll just jump in solo.

It just occurred to me, how long to save and exit if you've been attacked? Is that a way to escape from these weenies? Save and exit, re-enter in solo, proceed to station.

Seems Eve is coming to Elite. I kind of am not looking forward to the "Wings release". I thought the whole point of not having guilds/corporations was to prevent fleets of douchebags blockading systems and griefing traders.
Yeah, if it becomes that way I'll just start playing solo.

As I said before, unless I need a bio break or a new soda, I just move on. In ten minutes you'll be at or near the next station... plus who wants to just sit and wait.
