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.

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

Was it a player pirate or npc?
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.

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

I thought that his next promise was to change the name to from "Star Citizen" to "Battle Cruiser 3001 AD".

Lame. You can not simultaneously discovery scan an unexplored star and run your fuel scoop.

Thanks for the info Vall but it is too late I got a Cobra lol
Got it upgraded fairly well and put 2 beams and 2 chain guns and it rips apart just about everything.
The jumping distance is also much greater than it was on my Viper so I am happy.
One thing however I have to upgrade the fuel scoop I put the cheapest piece of crap I could find as I didn't think it would make a difference but the Cobra apperantly has a much larger fuel tank and it takes ages ro refill, so I am going to get a better one.

Looking more closely it appears perhaps the class 3-6 are just place holders...
Edit: No, I found class 3 and 4 Fuel Scoops at a station..

According to the Wiki, there are class 1-6 fuel scoops. But I haven't gone looking for them. Thanks for the info.

Yeah I am running rail guns on the Viper which may be my problem.
Maybe I trade it for a Cobra and do an all rail setup I saw Tim did in his video.
Problm is the Cobra needs so much money to get upgraded to my Viper's level it is not even funny and it still feels weak compared to the Viper.
I can sit there being shot at by Asps, Federal Drop ship or even Anaconda and I know I can take them out, in the Cobra a few shots and I gotta run or my ship gets blown into pieces.
