I sold my Asp. I miss it so much already. I went to the founder's world and bought a type7 hauler for 15 million. Then I spent all day grinding an additional 7 million and traded that stupid ship to get the Clipper.
Don't you need significant Empire reputation to get that?

The Lyell Hub in the Juan system near Bast has most ship models.

I haven't messed with the reputations yet. Does earning rep. for one faction automatically cause a reduction in the others? Or can you build up rep in all the factions if you have the time?

they regularly take people who are the 1%ers of attractiveness, and then photo-shop the crap out of them and then present non-reality as obtainable if you'd buy their product and presumably work out 24/7.
Yeah, I'm not sure what it says about our society that this kind of manipulation isn't thoroughly ridiculed. It's worse for women who are bombarded with this type of imagery on a very regular basis.

This problem is more imagined than real. Just arrange your HOTAS, keyboard, and mouse so that they're all in a row and easily accessible. It's not that hard.
I can't do that, my HOTAS (a Thrustmaster T.Flight) has a cable between the two units shorter than the width of my keyboard. And even if it had a longer cable, I'm not sure I'd want them that far apart. It's not a crippling problem, but it is annoying.

"Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space."
Kinda off topic here, but it really is difficult to grasp the reality of this. When the Milky Way galaxy collides with the Andromeda galaxy in a few billion years, despite a total reshaping of the two spiral galaxies into a single elliptical galaxy, very few stars will actually collide.

Nah, that's the ship building tool. This was a google spreadsheet listing specific components available at specific stations.

Dammit -- in my travels around the web at one point I found a very nice google spreadsheet with outfitting listings by locations. Don't suppose anyone has stumbled onto that? I can't find it again and I seem to have failed to bookmark it. *sigh*
Is it the one that was mentioned in here earlier?
I don't have it bookmarked either but if you look back a few pages you will find it.
I looked through your post and couldn't find a link to a google spreadsheet. I did I miss it?

I've never purposely waited, sometimes I walk away to get a soda or take a bio, and when I come back I get a few extra, but if I don't take a break and there are only 3 of the item, I take them and go to the next station.

Perhaps you are running directly one station behind me?

Well, I have 52T of cargo space and I don't think I've ever not run out of space during a loop, at least once. I just bought 19 of the rare at Coquim. Just bad luck on your part?

It's red because it hasn't calculated the jumps yet, so it can not plot the route yet. This is simply the way it works.

Also, the interface is poorly designed. If you simply sit there with your mouse pointer hanging over the red route icon, it never turns white even after the jumps have plotted. You have to change your focus and go back to the star after the jumps have been plotted.

Yeah, I know...

For example I am in CD-75 661 and my next stop is Lave but I can not plot a route to it, only to a system near by and ones I am on my way I will have to re route.
You should be able to plot a route from CD-75 661 to Lave. However, it is close to the max -- 90.82 ly, so it will take some time for it to calculate the jumps. Just sit there 15 seconds or so. If you move towards CD-75 661 you'll see the spiderweb of jumps spreading out...

lol -- I hope that was an NPC and not a fellow player, because I wasn't playing nearly enough attention when launching out of a station and plowed right into someone, destroying my ship -- and I assume theirs. Thank goodness for the 95% insurance.

Gonna try to find some time to make the loop even better. I'm shooting to get the stations about 60 ly apart. Don't know if that's achievable or not. But if I could it would make doing the loop so much better.

Okay, here is a modified 11 station loop.

11 Stop Loop

All credit to those providing the information in the original Reddit post I linked earlier. I make no claims to the efficiency of this route. In fact, I suspect it criss-crosses itself but *meh* whatever. Also I know there are some rare locations not on this list that are single jumps away from stations on the list. But, all the stations are within 100 ly of the next on the list.
