What I wouldn't pay (in real cash mind you) for someone to come up with a drone that would go scoop my mining fragments for me.

My goodness do I suck at the whole cargo scanner/scooper thing.



I think that will be coming in a future update.

So in all of beta I had zero issues running it.  Now, after upgrading to latest patch I have had a full hang 3 separate times.  Doesn't force a PC reboot, but I have to alt-tab and kill the game from task manager. 

I also have had a huge PitA with my x52 as it hasn't auto-calibrated properly and I usually have either drifting or rotation and have to fight the ship to stay on course. 

All in all, a not so great return to the game for me. 

Just go to your Saitek control and recalibrate it should fix it.

By the way guys do you know if there is any way to tell whether or not a system has been scanned by another player before?

Yea when you go to the galaxy map if system view is available that means they at least mapped that star where you first jump in.

Lee: If you got the joystick Hark recommended - the game does not automatically recognize the engine throttle on the bottom of the joystick.  You probably already know this- but you can go into options and set it up yourself in about 5 seconds.

Thanks for the link on the fuel scoop thing ping - I am so effing tired of self destructing my ship because I get caught in no-man's land.  I finally just bought one.  Problem solved.

Glad I could help the fuel scoop is life saver sometimes.

Wow, why do I suck so bad at using the Fuel Scoop? I studied the info in the manual and also the Pilots Guide, but either I can't find that yellow line to skim or I get too close and get grabbed out of supercruise and then overheated.

Fuel scooping help

If you enjoy exploring, aim to fit a Detailed Surface Scanner into one of your internal bays. 

I can't find this equipment for my Sidewinder. Is it only for an upgraded ship? I have 169K in credits and want to go exploring. I can't afford a Cobra Mk III, is there some some reasonable choice in my price range?


Look in hightech systems that's where I got mine cost me 250k I'm in a cobra though.

OK, so here's a couple dumb questions I could use quick help with:

1.  I have about 150,000 credits banked.  I want to buy a ship to mine ore with to try it.  I'm thinking an Adder?  Any advice here?

2.  Once I buy my second ship, does my free Sidewinder get turned in?  In other words, am I now only in possession of my 1 new ship?

3.  If #2 above is correct, than any ship I buy from that point forward gets added to my ship count, correct?  In other words, it's only the very first free ship that goes away?  I need some clarification.

4.  Anyone try the Eagle just for simple bounty hunting at Nav Beacons?  If so - what are your thoughts?

Edit to add Question 5.   What about picking up illegal cannisters?  It is really bugging me how I get scanned about 75% of the time, and end up paying more in fines than my "stolen" cargo is worth at the Black Market.  Any tips for that?


AA:  I will eventually be taking your advice on the exploration focused ship.  I love that part of the game.

Question number 1. you want to mine in systems with pristine reserves and metallic planet rings are your best bet. Much better than asteroid fields video to help you out.

Unless your opponent decides to use chaff, at which point your gimballed weapons will hit everything but your target.

Have you seen the AI use chaff much, or is that more something you see in PvP? 

Can't say that I have I use fixed weapons though so doesn't matter about chaff.

OK, I'm confused. On the Module subdisplay on the right hand panel, is "1" the lowest priority or the highest priority? In other words, if I assign "1" to a module, will it go off line earlier than a priority "2", or will it be the last to go offline?

1 means they will get power allotted to them first 2 is secondary.

So, last evening, I came to the conclusion I was playing contrary to my style...silenced weapons, burst weapons, trying to do things that I don't usually do and was just getting absolutely frustrated...  Soooo

I cleaned out all of my streaks and started over. Back to basics.  Base ak47 red dot, unsilenced. Immediately started hitting 2.0s consistently.  Well see if it keeps up, but I feel like I'm finding my groove..



Have you tried the EM1 heavy beam weapon yet? I can hip fire that thing to almost medium range feel like I'm cheating.

did you get the original or the pro, Kato?  I've found that for the most part, you can manage with the default control setup, but ran across a known issue.  the pinkie button at the bottom of the joystick grip is flaky and isn't picked up in game unless you have the x52 control panel up. 

I don't know if this is related, but you have to make sure you disable the clutch toggle in the x52 control panel, or the Boost command won't work in the game. It might be the same problem you're having.

If you install the editor, you can set the throttle click-wheel (just right of the throttle hat) to individual buttons if you remove the mapping to the default.  I haven't gone through to set up a complete profile as most of the work was done in ED directly just through it's control mapping.  If you do load up a default profile, it was recommended to remove the other modes and just leave mode 1.  TBH, not sure if this is needed though.

personally, try both options for the throttle, one using a toggle for forwards/back and the other maps the full range of the throttle for forwards/back.  I find the second option can help in landing if you over-shoot, plus it frees up a button for something else.

Ok will try it am a complete noob at this but trial and error lol.
