That'd be cool - then no more messing about when bounty hunting with friends. At the moment the few times I've teamed up with someone you have to decide who gets the kill shot, and therefore the bounty, and you have to do that quickly before another hunter takes the kill. Just being able to blast away at the target in the knowledge that the bounty will be shared between you would be awesome.

Agree completely. They also had a nice Fer De Lance drawing stated coming soon as well. If ya'll don't follow Elite Dangerous on Twitter or FB I highly recommend it.

I got a news letter saying the "wings" are getting close. I assume thats NPC wingmen you can hire, or is it you have invite friends to wingman for you during bounties and missions??

Also sucks that only beta backers can test it out, but its also understandable.

@Blameless

Thx for the input. I only got A rated life support because I could. The A rated sensors I figured will help me scan for wanted ships sooner, but with the lag in my connection I can literally run into a ship before I can select the ship... I might drop them two down, because the lighter ship should handle better. I didnt think of that before. EDIT: I also dont want to have to turn off FSD before deploying weapons, as sometimes time is of the essence and overloading your powerplant makes you as sitting duck for a moment.

Does having better thrusters allow you to go faster, turn quicker, or give your thrusters more hit points?? Or does it just allow you to move more mass like the stats say in the outfitting room??

I think it is the multiplayer functionality, rather than the NPC wingmen you can hire (which is another feature).

The first one. It makes you go a little bit faster, and supposedly makes you more manoeuvrable, although I've not noticed that.


One thing with the A-rated sensors - they supposedly make gimballed weapons track better, although I forget where I read that.


Edit: I got my Asp!

Got to say, C2 beam lasers tear things up. I rarely have to get my 4 C1 gimballed multi-cannons out.

Now I can afford the insurance costs I'm going to play some more Open stuff. If anyone wants to add me, Cmdr Pellew. I'm currently in Aulin - but have upgraded FSD, will travel.

OK, this freaking sucks.

Bounty hunting, clipped an innocent, got a 200cr bounty on my head. Big deal, it happens all the time and I have to go back to the station to reload anyway.

Fly to the station, granted docking permission, get inside, land on my pad, suddenly the station starts firing on me. Inevitably I'm destroyed pretty quickly.

But seriously, what the hell? Why did the station decide to fire on me this time, and not the 50 other times I've done that?

Anyway, I'm now out 350k because of a 200cr bounty.

oh man that is bs, that should not have happened. bounty hunting has been my only occupation and I have had to clear countless small bounties like that from accidentally shooting system authority ships or civilians, that's just not right! mad.gif

Not too sure, but I have been noticing that I get random station violations, for loitering that are quickly cleared, even when I'm not near a pad yet. Maybe some sort of lag or something with the server?

I too have been basically bounty hunting 100% of the time, but I wanted to try something different. So, I sold my Freagle and bought a Cobra. I hate it. I like the Viper SO much better, but the Cobra does allow for cargo room, PLUS a cargo scanner, hatch limpet, shield cell and chaff. I can't fit everything I needed to do some pirating on the Viper without giving up something like the shield cell, which I didn't want to do.

Edit: Odd. Went after another elite Anaconda, took it all the way down to 1% hull, and then it blew up and I didn't get the kill or the reward. Had to find another USS and re-fight the NPC. Then he jumped out before I even got his shields part way down. Dang it...

Had the exact same thing n my Lakon 6 last week. Lost a 400K cargo.

Loitering violation.I've been very wary entering and leaving the dock since.


Also - can someone educate me on Shield cells, I haven't used them yet. How do they work?
post #790 of 2960
Anyone on open play?? I just did my update and is my first time playing open. Wanting meet up with someone that speaks english and doesnt sit and spin in circles shooting

EDIT: Finally got my Sol permit. After bounty hunting around Sol for a while, mostly at Barnards Star, and 3 or 4 Federal missions I finally got it. Its beautiful, and the sun was a warm welcome for my ship which was getting low of fuel. I just sat there basking in its glory. First thing I did was jump into where the Capital ship is, as posted earlier, and when I came out of supercruise I was so close I literally ran right into it before I could turn to avoid it. Luckly no harm no foul, but was intense when I bounced off the front of it like a bird off my windshield.

I have to say though. That is one great looking ship. All the other ships in ED are fugly. I can barely tell the difference between a sidewinder and a cobra, unless I am right up close on its broad side. But that Cap ship is amazing. I was flying through the open structure of it with my viper. Even parked in one of the bays for a second, not docked or anything. I even did a Top Gun flyby through the front of it at full speed boost thumb.gif

And Mars apparently has an orbiting high school called Mar's High. It looks like a normal station type on the outside, but the inside is different and looks amazing. I think I seen green houses, palm trees, and other plant life
