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.

So the guy who killed me would have gotten a bounty put on him as a result of destroying me?

Had insurance, had about 20t of rare cargo. Does that all fall out into space for them? Or is in lost in the destruction of the ship? Actually the worst thing is it puts you back at the last station you were in, which was about 150 ly from where I was...

*grumble* Just interdicted and destroyed by a fellow player for the first time. Even had shields, they had to interdict me four time before destroying me, was about 10 ls away from the station.

Besides Forrest Gump, everything else is really heavy until you get back to the 1960s - when musicals were in vogue.
Titanic, A Beautiful Mind, and Chicago are heavy?

Yeah, that is not surprising -- from what I had seen I haven't even bothered adding Birdman to my 200 movie Netflix queue. And let me tell ya, there are certainly some so-so movies in that list.

Is there anyone who wants to see three more Avatar movies other than Cameron? I don't know of any.
I'll watch 'em on cable, but I won't be going to the theater to see them.

Hmmm, I've forgotten a couple of times and done it sitting next to the station and hadn't noticed it being quicker, but I wouldn't want to swear to it.

Gimballed cannons and fixed pulse? And that's just a basic scanner or the kill warrant scanner?

Wow, either I'm doing something really wrong or I really suck at combat. Finally got around to buying and equipping a Viper. Took what I assumed was a simple combat mission with only a 4k payout and got smoked. Maybe the guy I picked a fight with wasn't one of the "traders" I was supposed to be engaging?

Swapped Leesti in for Lave in my loop spreadsheet. The typical supply of Lavian Brandy was pretty bad.

11 stop loop

I believe it's supposed to be 1-7 of the commodity every 10 minutes and should be dedicated to you. That's just off the top of my head from remembering what's been said before -- so might not be exactly correct.
