Do you have a link Vall? Google isn't finding it for me and I can't use the forum search because Frontier is being stupid about my registration.

Just have two ships -- combat and trader. If I go for an explorer I'll probably trade in the combat ship for that.

I've been working on my Federation and Empire reputations. I have my ranks up to Ensign and Baron, but I'm still Neutral. Has Frontier said anything about this? Seems busted to me...

I don't know how you guys do those 11+ rare trade runs. That is the most boring thing ever. I tried it after a long break thinking it would be easier with a bigger jump range, but nope. Super boring.

It's sad, but I prefer my 5 ly trading route.
Necessity. I'm up to 20M cash, with probably another 8-10M sunk into a Type-6 and a battle ready Cobra. And I still can't really afford a Type-7 or Clipper to do the high volume trading... How did you get the money to buy your Clipper?

Wish there was a way to create multiple characters. That way we could try things without screwing up standings etc.
Yeah, I was thinking about this for exploring. Be nice if you could load up a ship and have it out in the wild, but switch back to another character in another ship when you need a change of pace.

Ha! I only just noticed the "Top 5" bounty thing in the news column. There are guys with seven figure bounties out on them, saw one guy who is up to a $7m+ bounty. At $5k per player killed that would be 1400+ kills... I'd loved to know his ship build out.

Huh, seems a little strange to me. My house is on a through street and therefore gets plowed pretty earlier on. I have some problems with the plows putting new snow on my drive, but rarely is it enough to worry about. Wonder what your drivers are doing differently...

How well do the weapons on the Clipper converge? Noticed you have the lasers on turrets.

I downgraded to 4A shields.
Edit:
This is my clipper setup. Trading Clipper
Ahh, that explains it. You realize past about 1/2 load you are over the maximum capacity of those shields, right? And why in the world do you have a kill warrant scanner?

I've got 232t of cargo space, so bulk trading is easier for me.

I just bought an Asp and outfitted it to explore. I've got a viper to fight, asp to explore, and clipper to trade. That should keep me occupied while I slowly build up money for the python.
So, you run the Clipper without shields. I take it you do that in Solo?

Well, I would ask for a screenshot of your exploration setup, but since you are no where near a station... I assume you have auto-maintenance loaded?

So are you still doing rare runs or are you doing bulk trading? I tried using that trade site for bulk trading but didn't get what the site said I would. Tried three different sets of information, maybe it is just bad perception by me, but it seems the rare run does better for me. Of course, I only have a type 6....

Oh man, I am so close to a python! I need about $5 million more. Or ten (for insurance). Really twenty (for some guns). And then another hundred million after that (for upgrades). Fuck this game...
So, when you said you were close you meant you have about $50M? Looks to me like a reasonably equipped Python is close to $100M. That means insurance would be $5M. So, I'm guessing you should have $150M before trying that.

Just a warning, with my love for sequential dates, I'm going to make a big deal 30 years from today, since it will be 01/23/45. Mark my words.
Here's to hoping you live to type it and I live to read it. Oh and I added it to my Google calendar so I won't forget.

I assume someone is either doing this, or has already done it -- but have you read about anyone circumnavigating the galaxy? Just curious. Not sure how you would define that...

My sister swears by the standup desk she has at her office. It would take me a while to build up the stamina to stand most of the day, As far as carpal tunnel and other related sitting at a computer issues -- it is all very individual. I've been using computers for play since 1980 (on mainframes) and work since 1988 and I have never had any issues.
