Spaceship Ahoy - Elite: Dangerous

The Elite: Dangerous forums announce the official release of Elite: Dangerous, as version 1.00 of Frontier Developments' space combat sequel is now available. The game's official website is non-responsive at the moment, but that forum post has some details:
A 30 year legacy, and more than 2 years of development, and we're thrilled to announce that Elite: Dangerous 1.00 is out now, available for download and play.

Thanks to everyone who played this far - see you in space Commanders.

Change log for those updating from Gamma:

  • Prevent missions softlocks when switching servers from A->B->A without disconnecting from A
  • Check if we should use the neutron star's version of the bolometric luminosity first to prevent soft lock
  • Avoid crash in creating a location object when it hits a rare window
  • Sky box view distance altered to reduce memory usage in highly populated regions

Got within 600 yl when I finally identified it. It appears it is a series of black holes in the "NGC 7822 Nebula" -- it is a feature easily find-able in the galaxy map. But apparently there is a "gap" around the Nebula, I get "route unavailable" when attempting to get a route there.

What the hell is that? It looks like a graphics glitch more than a system. Unless it's multiple high population planets with super bright city lights...

Currently I'm trying to get to this whatever it is..

Edit: The issue is I can't see that in the galaxy map... so it going through all the jump points one at a time hoping one goes generally in that direction....

No damage thankfully.
I did get something like 2% damage from combat the other night it was 15K repair bill.

Yeah, if I go afk, I either go into the outfitting area or save and exit. Did that shrapnel cause any damage to your ship? I slightly overheated last night...still at 100% hull but had a $30k repair bill. :\

I forgot to request docking clearance a few times in my python. I didn't have time to turn around, so I just went full reverse and hoped no one was behind me. If that were to happen in the space cow, I'd be so screwed.

I've actually started into stations a couple of times now without requesting docking... always a scary moment. So far I've gotten out quickly enough each time, usually with a 400CR fine.

So last night I was inside a station landed on a platform and did some shopping for rare goods.
The station only had a few of the items so I alt tab out of the game and browse on the web a little, headphone still on.
I am hearing this shooting going on in game, figured some dumb Ai try to dock again without permission, then goes the explosion.
I didn't care it happened many times before I was just browsing away waiting for the station to refresh stock then I am hearing this strange noise almost like scraping noise and laugh out loud thinking must be someone new try to make it inside the station through the mail slot. I was playing online.

Well the scraping and shield penetration noise kept going on for a good 20seconds when I thought I should check out what's going on, it doesn't take this long to squeeze into the station even if you have no clue how to fly the ship lol

In game I see this huge chunk part of a blown up ship floating in front of me scraping against my ship and that shield noise was my ship's shield.

So lesson of the night. If you go afk be sure to bring your ship under the deck in case some dumb ass gets blown up inside the station and parts of his ship decides to meet up with yours!

Okay. Update to my route. Igal > buy gold from Shapely Dock. Fly to Yab Camalo. Sell in Kidd dock. Do not buy anything and fly to Miller dock. Now buy Imp. Slaves. Now go back to Igal and rinse, repeat.

Edit:

Annoying but apparently, Imp slaves are only well supplied at agriculture zones now. Actually, they are probably being bought out really fast at bi-directional station points.

Edit2:

Okay, here's the breakdown. You get $1.5k/ton for the gold sold. If you buy slaves from Kidd dock you make jack shit. Fly over to Miller dock and buy slaves, then you can sell them for $1.1k/ton. I'm sure there's better routes in the galaxy, but I have yet to find one. Also, this suits my new space cow. If it dries up, totes my fault.

I'll bet if you go back and look, you'll see you were selecting lower class Thrusters.

I agree. That's the only reason I can think of why it wouldn't work.

Sorry about the confusion, I know I said earlier I have power problems but I actually have mass problems. I was able to find a Thruster upgrade now that I could fit but most of them says mass exceeds limit or something.

Edit: I think you are right MrTact I was probably looking at the wrong class thrusters which is why I couldn't find one that fitted the ship

Vall I will upgrade the power distributor as soon as I find one at a station that is better than what I have installed. All the stations I've been to tonight sells the small class 2-3 stuff.

Just to be devil's advocate...you're not trying to install a class 6 thruster are you? Asp can only go up to 5. I don't mean to sound dickish...I actually had this problem before I realized what was going on.
Other way around... I'll bet you are selecting a Class 4 Thruster, which would have a much lower mass capacity. Be sure you are selecting a Class 5 Thruster.
