Elite: Dangerous - Anyone Out there?

Recommended Posts

I haven't strayed too far from where the stars are quite dense, so I don't know what it's like at the extremes of the galaxy, but I'm relatively sure that there should always be stars you can refuel at within range as long as you pay some attention to your fuel.

Storm has his point.

number of stars systems increase when closer to the galactic core and inside nebula. Jump range may have a greater effect of determining number of jumps. However, for outer space exploration and convenience, tank is essential. I will still fit it on larger ships. Python takes 6-7 jumps to empty the tank, which is alright. Conda, 4.:doge:

EDIT: Last minute change, switched the 2nd Planetary Vehicle Hangar for a 5C Fuel Tank and I'm off :-)

I switched out 2 SRVs for a 5C fuel tank.

The lasers are just there in case I need to shoot a rock or something :-)

Or a thargoid ;-)

Nah the ship wreck is about everything we can have until 2.2, shame.

Mining lasers maybe, and mine launcher :3

Meanwhile, in peasant land, I bought and decently kitted out a Viper 3. Nothing too terribly fancy, 2 burst lasers, 2 mini guns or whatever they're called, and a couple of A rated things. Currently flying out of Wohler terminal in Kremainn, plenty of high RES' nearby. Had a really good run for a bit where i made about 1.2m, then it trickled down to small ships only. Servers went offline after that, but I pretty much made back it's purchase price in about an hour.  

 

That said, what are the quicker ways to make credits?

Sothis runs. In my Asp with 72 tons of cargo space I was making 10m to 15m in an hour or so.

I can't even plot a route to sothis. Cool.

 

And what is it with the High RES being so hit or miss? Sometimes theres gunships, vultures, etc. All i saw for the past hour or so was Adders, sidewinders, and a few other small ships.

Welp, I'm heading towards the Witch Nebula and then on towards Barnard's Loop. Starting to hit systems with planets that don't have a "First discovered by tag" :-)

Well hey, I've already found some. This is just a training run to get enough exploration data to unlock level 5 upgrades with Farseer.

Only level up engineers by crafting. Every highest possible blueprint craft gets you 33%

You will need millions of data to go one favour

According to Reddit, about 8kly of exploration get you to level 5 with Farseer. I already unlocked to level 3 crafting 3 things and selling about 500k of exploration data.

8k Ly of exploration yet the uncertainties are what stars and planet you get during the trip.

Difference can be huge

For sure, but as I said, a relatively small of amount of exploration already got me to level 3. I'm not fussed if my current trip doesn't quite get me to level 5.
