I've been using the X52 Pro for several months, it works just fine.
Cargo depends on the mission in the bulletin. Some will simply give you the cargo to deliver and pay you a fee. Others may be missions to procure a certain type of cargo and bring it back, you keep the difference in what they pay and the cargo's cost.Some things to watch out for:Be careful when traveling and watch your fuel. If you run out of fuel and you don't have a fuel scoop (or even if you *do* have a fuel scoop and are in a system without a scoopable star or gas...
Never tried it with a mouse, but it works just fine with a 360 controller. It's *much* better with a HOTAS (and Oculus Rift) though.
You can play the game in pretty much any way you want, including basically pure combat if you want.Either pick up kill contracts in the bulletin boards, or hang out at navigation beacons and interdict wanted commanders, or go to Resource Extraction Sites and kill pirates, etc.You can easily make enough money to upgrade your ship and weapons.
Plus good luck getting warranty service if you take the drive out of an external enclosure.
$140 plus shipping from Microcenter. http://www.microcenter.com/product/441064/5TB_7,200_RPM_SATA_III_60Gb-s_35_Desktop_Internal_Hard_Drive_PH3500U-1I72 Got two of them recently and they're extremely fast and working flawlessly.
This sale is either back or ongoing. Picked up two of the 5 TB flavors of this drive a couple of weeks ago. They're a bit noisier during access than my previous drives, but they are *fast*. 215 MB/s max read speed, 165 MB/s min, 191 MB/s, average, 8.1 ms access time during my testing. They're about twice as fast as the 2 TB and 3 TB 7200 rpm Seagates they replaced. Thinking about getting one or two more this weekend too.
Basic Discovery Scanner has a range of 500 ls.Intermediate has a range of 1000 ls.Advanced has no range limit.Keep in mind the Detailed Surface Scanner is a supplement to the Discovery scanners. It can't be used on its own.
The only game I've pre-ordered in years was Alien: Isolation. And I was very happy with it. Best game (IMO) based on the franchise yet released, and I've played every one of them from the Atari 2600 Alien, the C64 version, and all the way up to the incredibly crappy Aliens: Colonial Marines. However, for the most part there isn't much point in pre-ordering. You rarely get a significant discount, and extras are often lackluster. Better to wait until the state of the...
How are they forcing you to buy the pre-order? Simply don't buy it. Wait until after the release and read reviews and forums to see what condition the game is in. Or wait well after release and buy it once it's discounted.
