I was wondering, what's the current popular loadout for the Python? I sold every ship besides my exploring Asp and combat Vulture so I have plenty of leftover money to fit the python, about a hundred millions

The problem with that generator is that it just applies a filter over a screenshot so how it looks on there tends to not quite look how it does when you're actually playing.

Yeah the online tool is handy to give you an idea of what you're doing when you're making your own color, but the quality of the picture there is a lot lower than what you'll see in the game. Generally if it looks good on the site it will look good ingame but sometimes bad ones on the site look good ingame.

Not liking the swamp green though.

Does anyone have the link to the list of systems you can just sit in and grind donation missions? I want to get a Federal Gunship when it drops but you need to be rank 7 Fed and at trying to get your ranks up normally.

Also TomR is there a way to get the red a bit brighter on that HUD? Any red text is really hard to read for me which is kinda annoying.

Make the numbers in the red row bigger. The red will get brighter and/or change colors. Good luck!

I can compile a list of systems near 63 G. Capricorni for you (and me) to grind Fed rank, so we can get some of that sweet gunship action hell yes up top o/

Pretty sure you can grind rank everywhere, just do missions at easy to access stations that are not next to Alpha Centauri. If a rank up mission does not appear, move a couple systems over and repeat.

Well I'm talking about the list of systems where if you go to them they give almost nothing but donation missions, and it makes it easy to get rep. Well, "easy" but it's way less annoying than doing like 100+ or whatever regular missions.

This is no longer the case as of 1.3. It is now a raw, fixed number of missions before a rank up will appear. The pro move for Fed rank is to go to Tun and donate to charity forever, continually resetting the instance, donating to charity, and then doing it again until a rankup mission appears.

For imperial rank, it's the same process, but in Tamar.

Checking out the Beta. Feels like Bounty Hunting is back again with the Hazadrous RESs, lots of 300k Anacondas to pop. Someone of them even in Wings with Clippers. It's good stuff and with the longer time to kill with the penetration and powerplant changes it certainly worth while winging up for it.

Now if only I could actually find CQC matches....

HazRES might finally make winging for cash reasonable as double banging condas with pve pythons would still be faster and the same amount of money as single banging condas, especially if wings are involved.

Owns.

Being able to land on that planet will actually be really cool, like imagine if you looked up and the sun was taking up a fifth of the visible sky. (you would also be a liquid at that point but nevermind that)

I wish CQC would hurry up out of Beta for a bigger player base, all you can really reliably-ish find is DM right now, and I'd much prefer the TDM rotation. I could gently caress in that Arena.

I may dabble with CQC, but the part of Horizons I'm most interested in will be driving a space buggy.

CQC is being released in 1.4 which is separate to Horizons and should be out very shortly. I'm not sure if Horizons is going to be released alongside 1.5 or slightly afterwards but you've got a while until you can drive your buggy so enjoy the CQC stuff in the meantime.

They said they'd be released at the same time, not that they're the same release. 1.5 is still part of "Season One", you won't need Horizons to get the new ships.

I think all these slaps to the face are starting to blur your vision.

You can't do anything proper with either A7 or A6 prismatics on a clipper, sorry. Even the A6 is too power hungry to take advantage of, and it has a weird interaction with the ship mass.

To expand, while you can power both A6 and A7 prismatics with guns out, you can't do cell banks. If you swap two of the boosters for chaff, the A7 prismatics give you 504MJ of shield, and a B6 bank, at the cost of useless chaff. A6 prismatics allow for 3 boosters and 1 chaff, for a total of 499.76MJ.

For comparison, 4 boosters A7 shield gives you 550 MJ, and plenty of power for banks.

These were also dark times for gamers as we were shunned by others for being geeky or nerdy and computer games were seen as Childs play things, during these dark ages the whispers began circulating about a 3D space combat game called Elite

- CMDR Bald Man In A Box

With NPCs spamming chaff in 1.4, maybe the age of the iClipper being the glorious PvE ship is now over.

The power generator of the iClipper is pretty generous, perhaps you just need to sacrifice a booster or two?

Chrysophylax

You could, but what you get in return isn't worth it, imo. Chaff on the 2nd largest ship barely works, but if you're RESing or something and you absolutely need a KWS or something, there may be a way to make it work better than a normal shield.

I think he's right, may as well just go for a normal shield and use the extra power
