Just got a wing together with my console crew and we're taking over a Minor Faction which should be interesting.

Sorry Mini, have fun though!

I logged on briefly the other day, I'm so keen to get back into this with the new QoL stuff, map bookmarks, CG's easily findable on the map, new mission board. I have enough cr to cover insurance on my Clipper if things go wrong in combat, I also logged on remembering I have a trade python fully kitted out as well. I'm away this weekend but I think next week I'll be jumping on a bit when I'm not playing Overwatch.

Not rushing into grabbing it though...

Picked up a VR headset recently... so had to try Elite again (hadn't played since beta)... wow does VR make this game shine!

Feels pretty glorious in combat with a HOTAS setup, absolutely loving it.
What is frustrating as absolute shit is not having rudders in my default setup, rolling seems to move you in more than just a roll frustratingly making targeting a real cumbersome affair. Got some pedals on order so hopefully that sorts things out.

Still waiting on actual internet so trying not to play too much, got an epic phone data bill last month :(

Finally, I knew there was a reason I bought Horizons.
So keen to give the new update a try.

Hey, I got sidetracked with other games after I lost all that money on powerplay fast forwards, haha.

I was meant to start the update just now before I left for work but I got halfway here before I realised I forgot to start it...

turns out the version I linked has been unlisted on their youtube page because you can see the windows taskbar at the 1:11 mark, but they haven't deleted it so it stays.

This game would look amazin on the ultrawide I'm planning to buy.

OK that's it, I've said it countless times over the last few months but I'm definitely returning to Elite now.

Haha, definitely. I'm already pumped up to finish work tonight so I can bust out the joystick and get my bearings again. I have no idea which section of space I'm parked, or what ship I'm even parked in.

Haha, hit me up, always up for a game (Well after 8:30ish when the kids finally go to sleep :D)
I haven't flown for ages, but new mouse and keyboard should prove interesting...

Oh man I've missed being behind the joystick of this bad boy.

Image

Quick shot as I leave behind the planet I seemingly left myself on last time I played.

Image

Checking my current ships I remember I have a huge Python docked a handful of jumps away, along the way I run into a dwarf star which I've never actually run into before. I completely misjudged the size of the thing and it pulled me out of supercruise and I took huge amounts of heat damage, but it was seriously worth it to see this.

Image

My Clipper shown above was refit so I could take it down to planets and roam around in the buggy, but now I'm back in space I might have to refit for combat and take down some pirates to get used to flying again.
The Python I had docked is decked out for trade with about 260T of carry space, so I might leave him like that for now so I can use it for trade CGs and such.

I found a list on the Elite Dangerous subreddit that lists the possible locations to get interdicted by a Thargoid ship.
Asterope
Aries Dark Region EW-M B7-1
Aries Dark Region DR-M B7-2
Aries Dark Region FW-W D1-47
Aries Dark Region FR-V C2-17
Aries Dark Region XU-O B6-3
Aries Dark Region ZP-O B6-3
COL 285 Sector QR-U B3-3
HIP 11154
HIP 15954
HIP 17403
Hyades Sector VD-B B4
Pleiades Sector BRM-M B7-0
Pleiades Sector HR-W D1-57
Pleiades Sector IX-K B8-O
Pleiades Sector JC-U B3-2
Pleiades Sector OI-S B4-2
Pleiades Sector XU-X B1-1
I might take my Clipper out to one of these spots this evening after work and see what I find.

So question Moose... do you have enough money to replace the Clipper if it is destroyed?

Hahaha, rebuy for my combat Clipper was something like 8mil iirc, and I'm sitting on 22mil, so I have a couple of spare lives. :lol:

Haha, I remember that being your biggest issue the entire time we were flying together.
I loaded it up yesterday to make sure it all still worked and was up to date... god I don't remember the controls at all...

It might actually be worth me jumping back into a smaller combat ship like the Vulture until I can bank a little bit more to cover insurance on both my Clipper and Python, if god forbid I destroy either of them.
It'll also give me a chance to have a look at the overhauled missions and Engineer stuff as well.

Currently visitting the ancient alien ruins at Synuefe XR-H D11-102 with a friend, there's an engineer in Meene that offers a mission with a 100mil credit reward for solving the puzzle at the ruins, which have recently become active with the arrival of the Thargoids.

Image

It's basically a combination puzzle picking up 1 or 2 relics at a time and scanning beacons, Frontier forums and r/EliteDangerous are working overtime trying to solve the puzzle but aren't anywhere close to solving the whole thing yet, but you do get a bonus 1mil for every combination you scan so we're out here getting the known scans and making a bit of cash.
