Just to help spread the knowledge, the Asp is actually named after a snake (and so is the Fer-de-lance) so you don't spell it out like A-S-P.
I thought you did too, but reddit "kindly" fixed that for me. tongue.gif

I based myself in Wuru and did trade runs and picked up every mission from Empire Pact. There is a rotation to the quests though. Something like 1. Delivery 2. Acquire 3. Subversion 4. Assassination. They repeat. If you are avoiding the assassinations or the acquires you will never progress.

thanks for this, been trying to figure it out as well, what hub were you at specifically in the Wuru system?

that imperial courier is looking good!

Hmmm, my net worth is approaching 50 million credits.

I am in a quandry about the Fer-De-Lance and the Python - which are only a few million credits apart in price.

Of course I still have plenty of time to decide since i would also want to upgrade the shields and FSD, which will cost a few million on top. As well as the insurance costs.

The FDL is clearly cheaper as well as having cheaper upgrades, but i am loathed to buy it for just a few weeks then have to pay the depreciation on it.

Opinions?

What do you want to do with it?

From what I've read, the FdL is a good fighter, certainly for PvP, with good manoeuvrability, strong shields, and a high top speed. The C4 and 4 C2 hardpoints make for interesting loadouts, although there are a couple of C4 cannons available now, so you are not stuck with the large plasma accelerator as the only 'huge' weapon. It lacks a little in power plant capacity, jump range, and cargo space - not good for trading or particularly suited to pirating. I did fly one for a bit during the beta stage, and I have to say it is a fun ship to fly and potent in combat.

I have a Python, it is a good all rounder - decent in combat, although a little sluggish to turn. The hardpoints are located well, and 3 C3 plus 2 C2 hardpoints make it a heavy hitter. Reasonable jump range and plenty of cargo space make it reasonable for trading and pirating. It is more expensive than the FdL to outfit though, but you don't have to worry about power plant capacity.


I'm almost at the point of buying a second ship - I want to get a Vulture and have a bit of a spin in it. The Python is feeling a little too slow right now.

TL:DR i mean 1600 posts, anyways i bought this game a couple of days ago and im having alot of problems playing this on a x360 controller and the KB/mouse seems a but too confusing for me is there a way i can actually enjoy this on the x360 controller? my main problem is that the yaw and roll and strafe. i cant fit them all into to the layout yet i heard people got around that but to download the profile i must jump thru a lot of hoops to get it and that seems very fishy

Honestly, even though it is probably possible, I just can't imagine playing the game without a stick. Even a cheap one like the Logitech 3d pro with a kb. A controller would work until combat but everything ends up in combat unless you are playing solo.

I use this:

Newegg has it $10 cheaper though. Works really well. All buttons can be rebound to whatever you like.
