Well.. thats kind-of the trouble with pirating - it doesnt work all that well.. players either flee or get killed for very little reason. For those looking for real PvP encounters will probably struggle to find another player. So those pirating will probably move into busy area, where the police are next to useless to keep order. Pirating isnt profitable enough, police dont keep order and there is too much griefing. and on-top of that you have combat-logging too.

hi there, sorry for not looking into this sooner. I have looked into this issue and it should be fixed. The problem was to-do with the move to https.

I guess you lost your game when switching between pc's? as you upgraded a little ago? things such as save-game often give over-looked, which is crazy considering how much effort goes into them. Although sometimes restarting can be a good thing, as may learn better ways of doing things.

So I guess when that DLC comes out, your be playing that a lot? is is a large DLC? ive personally been a little disappointed in some of the DLC which has been coming out. Has the DLC for dark souls been a bit better?

Sorry for not posting soon, just there has been quite a few things happening for me. I also wanted to get the fed rank done before v2.3 hits, just in-case there are some hidden changes. A big congratulations on gaining the Corvette, the fed rank and the Elite trading ranks. You have been busy!

I agree the fed rank is a really pain in the rear to complete. In the end I grinded donation missions using one of glitches (not ideal but saved a lot of time). It basically allows you to complete a bunch of donation missions and keep repeating them. However it still cost me over 300 million worth of credits. Someone said on Facebook that the donation missions were changed, and the million one were 10,000cr.

It sounds you're really getting into Elite now, just swigging around to Colonia. I do agree its a little empty there, but something worth checking out. I think in 2.3 the Colonia station turns into a one of them mega-ships... although im not 100% sure on that. Whether this means something will happen to Colonia in 2.3 is another question. Frontier also havnt said if those mega-ships can move - I think they will be to be honest.

As for the Cutter and Corvette, well I skipped the cutter. The only really bad thing with the corvette ive seen (not took it into battle yet) is the -20ly jump-range. Id like to seen 25ly (after mods).

ps. you can also filter the universe map, to only show non-sequence stars (which includes neutron star and black-holes). There does appear to be a lot more around the Colonia area, and they do help get around quicker (200+ly jumps are nice);




Hopefully I can get this commander section finished soon too. That should hopefully make it easier to see every-ones progress etc.

ps2. I started looking into getting Modified Embedded Firmware for multi-cannons, but those are annoying to collect.

I can't seem to access the blog section at all.

Hi there, its down for maintenance for the time being - until I can get it working with the new commanders home area.

Well there has been some more changes done now. The biggest thing is a re-work of the user profile pages. I hope they are abit easier to navigate and provide more information. I have still got to do the update on the character stripping, post like and statistics page. Let me know what you think of the profile pages.

Neutron stars do look pretty cool. I guess Cygnus X-1 isnt that far from the human bubble?

btw, it looks like the sight-seeing missions are back. The reward looked pretty much the same to me.

No worries, im glad to see the forum working and hear of any problems. I guess the main thing to you guys is that the design has changed. Dates arent displayed any-more instead how long ago, plus how threads are shown. Hopefully its a little cleaner than before? Its still a work-in-progress however.

[Update]
- I have done quite a few updates to the black theme, which should fix most/all of the issues. Im still not 100% happy with it however - any suggestions? Some of the black theme updates will apply to the whole site.

- Many of the moderation pages have now been fixed,

As you may of noticed, the forum has been going under a few changes. However its not just how it looks, some of the code has changed too. I know not everything is up and running at the moment, but the basic forum functions should be (view topic/thread/board, reply, edit and create thread). So I am interested to hear what you think so far, and if you noticed any problems with the forum. thanks.

[Known issues]

- The statistics page isnt working atm,
- To rework the forum character stripping - so brackets can be used,

Yea, I agree that some items shouldnt have power management. So I have removed bulkhead, fuel-tank and reactor from priority option, and given hatch an option. I also noticed a few issues with the share-code which should be fixed now.

as for removing power management for internal compartments, that may be more complex - as certain internal do need to have power management. This would make the share-code vary in size, which would lead to all manor of problems.

I have also written an external rewrite for get_build.php, so its redirected to the correct address.

And not a moment too soon. They just removed all the passenger missions due to a bug. I expect to see a major nerf as well.
- Sinxar

Big congratulations Oxidire on the rank. Im glad I got it too, as I think your right about the nerf. Those sight-seeing missions made the rank a bit too easy. What was the bug?

That's nice, I like it
I hope other people will appreciate your efforts too.
- Oxidire

Glad to hear. I have managed to keep the share-code the same, and add priority to it. So it will be possible to share builds with equipment and priorities, and keep the old codes (without priorities) working as well.

Well to be honest, 64gb is over-kill for just about everything. However I wanted to fill the board up whilst I can.

Anyway, here's a look at the updated ship pages so far, although things may change before release;

You can even try increasing FSD range, much like the engineer.

ps. I noticed that thing with the forum too, another thing to work on.

hmm.. sounds like you know a few different languages than me, as had to learn HTML/CSS/JS/PHP/Mysqli for the site. Im no expert at them, as still make mistakes. I dont know Unix, C++ or python that well. I really dont get on with C++ at all.

Zen is AMD new architecture, which is supposed to rival Intel (about time)... but we have to see how that goes. It should be out in the next couple of months. Hopefully it will make cpu's a little cheaper, Intel's 10 core is stupidly over-priced.

as for your system, that does sound pretty good. I had to SLI my 980ti, so I could run 4k at 60hz. 4k is pretty demanding as you know. My main system can be seen here (basically its an 5820k@4Ghz, 64Gb DDR4, 980ti SLI). I did also build a 6600k for my dad later on. The test server is just a mess around system, so I didnt want to spend much on it. Does the 780 help much being an physx dedicated card?

I just want to say that you might see me replying to other posts first, the reason is that adding features you ask for takes a lot more time and effort. So please dont feel like I am ignoring this post. I plan on doing a lot of things with the site, the first being the ship pages. On the test server you can now over-clock the FSD drive - basically see what you can get from an engineer. Is +60% optimal mass the best you can get? Ill have to see how I can get the power management stuff on there next. I guess in some-ways it will be frustrating to hear about these updates without actually seeing them until they are done.

The areas I plan to update are;

- Forum design/fix page thing,
- ED ship pages,
- ED build pages,
- ED black market,
- User lists,
- Profile pages,

What kind of ship do you use for the passengers missions ? How much jump range ? Engineered ?
- Oxidire

Myself, I was doing them in a Anaconda with around 50ly (with cabins installed). My L5 mod isnt the best, I thought id try to get a better one and end-up getting a worse one. I need to get materials to retry.

Passengers who dont want scanning is a real problem at Founders worlds, nearly every time I get scanned when landing/launching. I heard scan detected way too many times. Maybe I should of chosen another place to get passenger missions.

Gratz both of you for your Elites, I feel so late when I see your ranks ... and BALANCE OMG HOW ?
- Oxidire

Just takes time, you do have to earn a lot of money to get those Elite titles. A billion was required for the trade one. I am not sure if you can passenger missions for trade rank? hard for me to test.
