    Welp, it seems the patch has fixed some of the mining related issues. I managed to get about 100t of Tritium in about an hour, which is better than 32t in the same time frame before the patch. Tritium is still single digits in Colonia stations, hopefully they might normalise over the next few days. In better news, while I was mining, I started taking to another CMDR who just got to Colonia with his carrier. I mentioned that I'm trying to get the fuel we needed to do the trip to Sag A*. So, he ended up selling me 4k of his Tritium for my carrier, and now thanks to him, we are go for the Galactic Centre trip! I'll probably be departing either today (after I wake up) or Wednesday. The return trip is about the same distance as the Bubble-Colonia one-way, so I should be able to jump the carrier out to there in one day, head out for a bit so you guys who came along can see the centre, then we can either head back to Colonia, hope the stations have restocked their Tritium (or mine it) & fill it up again to head back home. Or, I try to mine it near the centre, fill it up that way & head directly back to the bubble from there. Either way, I'll post the itinerary when I start the trip.

    I present to you, the butthole of the universe! Sagittarius A! Predz ended up inviting me via the ingame "multi" crew function, jumped into one of the fighters docked in the ship and flew around for a bit.

    It looks too confined for a space fight/sim. I remember the old X-Wing/Tie Fighter games you could be having a fight around a Star Destroyer then some other ship would jump in miles away that would be a valuable target (kind of bonus mission) and it could take you 5 to 10 mins just covering the distance to get to it before it jumped out. Felt like you were actually in space and there were moments of calm. This looks very Arena.

    Nice! I've been out to Witch Head a few times, doing Search & Rescue when the Thargoids first attacked the colonists sent to the sector (as well as checking out some of the Thargoid surface sites in the area) & to max out the engineer there. Furtherest I've gone in that general direction was the Orion Nebula. If the Horse Head Nebula wasn't permit locked, I would have liked to travel out there. In current happenings with the trip... the latest patch has made Tritium (the Fleet Carrier fuel) harder to get, especially out Colonia way. So I'm currently doing some combat missions to get some more credits, since I blew through a fair chunk buying Tritium for the carrier pre-patch. I'm hoping that the markets might normalise in a few days so that these stations have more than a couple of tons in stock. If it doesn't fix itself, I'm probably gonna have to scrape together enough fuel to get the three of us back to the bubble and leave the trip to the Galactic Centre (Sagittarius A*) until another time. Update: FDev is aware of the Tritium shortages & is now working on another patch. No current ETA on when said patch will be released.

    Wow you guys look like you are having fun over there. I'm on my way back to the bubble from the witch head nebula (first expedition).

    Welp, despite everything, the carrier has made it. And finally, after all this time... what a sight!

    Yeah, I remember doing random dumb things in Freelancer, and you would be doing something and get told to go somewhere else... And it was like "I am going how far?"

    Yeah, feels just average? Feels like a very casual game, jump in here and there. Not something to play every night. No aim assist, that's something at least.

    I finally activated a two week free trial for Disney+. It was expiring yesterday, so I had to finish off the last four episodes of The Clone Wars and the last two of The Mandalorian in quick succession. The TV series just show what can be done with the depth of the Star Wars universe. I'd really like to see some High Republic action - multiple Sith and Jedi all together. The action scenes could be amazing (as were the ones in TCW and TM). I also agree with Blue's comments above about the last trilogy. I think a lot of Star Wars fans feel betrayed, especially given what they've shown they can achieve with the Marvel IP ;( Then again, people felt let down by the prequels when they first came out (even though they're possibly my favourites) - so maybe we're just not the target grouping anymore.

    I ended up sticking with AMD for everything... My system is Ryzen 5 1600x Radeon 5700 XT Looking at upgrading the CPU soon, but still not seeing anything that really hammers it, so haven't bothered.

Patch notes - https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/fleet-carriers-update-patch-4-patch-notes.551646/ *Originally was scheduled for release on the 29th of July. They found errors during testing, hence the delay.

    That might just be my favourite totally 100% real image I've ever seen. Faster than 197% of AU? That's impressive stuff.

    I think technical wise everything actually went very smoothly. Telstra even sorted the transfer in a single day, and the new place is somehow faster (90Mbps). The moving has certainly shocked me too Mini

    Well................................... I logged to join Predz in doing a couple of jumps..... turns out I forgot to dock with the carrier when I last played.... guess who is stuck in Colonia?

    The small squadron sizes were the part that shocked me.. I was thinking 30v30 or something... not 5v5. For me that feels like they are going straight for eSports rather than getting a good game people want to play that morphs into an eSport. To me the flying looks "fine", but that is all, it isn't amazing /spectacular... and agree on the 30 minutes every now and then for a few battles and done with it

    Well I am still docked on the Carrier, so I am good for the full trip

    After watching that vid, I gotta agree, looks average (no real variation on objectives in Fleet Battles, imagine if some Black Sun/Hutt Cartel fleet interfered once in a while to mess with things, at least it would mix it up a bit). If there's an open beta, I'll give it a try. But, unless they reverse their 'no post-launch content' stance, even the reduced price of $50 is too much for me to justify for what's in the game. Probably leave buying it till it's around $30 in that case.

    Nice work mate. I couldn't even ballpark current prices for older tech. See what someone offers it for on Ebay. Start high if you're not in a rush - you can always go lower.

    Well, it's ordered, hopefully if all goes to plan I'll be gaming on a new rig by the end of the week! Ended up swapping the 10700KF for the K model as the KF model doesn't have an integrated GPU. Anyone got a rough idea on how much an i5 7600, GTX 1060 and an AsRock H270 Fatal1ty Performance mobo are worth these days? Would ultimately like to sell as one complete package.

    Nice. Might even be able to sell some of the old stuff to make some cash on the side.

    Yeah personally I wouldn't even worry about a 3000 series card; but new cards should see prices of existing ones come down for you a bit. Then again, there could be supply issues, delays, etc. etc. - so if you know what card you want after doing a bit of research, I think just get it.
  33. 1 point
    I'm not up with the best performance per buck benchmarks at the moment. There might also be new 3000 cards coming soonish? If you wanted to wait, you could then get a 2000 card possibly a bit cheaper. But if you're keen to get your hands on something now then either of those cards should be suitable and get you through the next couple of years.

    Its pretty good. Runs well and wasn't too buggy when I played a bit way back. Think I like it better then Post Scriptum but both very similar. Think I just liked the gun physics a bit better. But I get over WW2 settings pretty quickly. Most guns unless sniper only have iron sights from memory. And maps are massive and look pretty. Really need to play as a squad and have a good squad leader for it to be really fun other wise you just get stomped on. If I wasn't getting over an ear Infection I'd be keen as to jump on with a few peeps as its one of those games I keep meaning to get back into.

    I watched Greyhound last night. It was really interesting seeing part of the war I don't know much about. Only 1.5 hours and pretty action packed. If anyone listens to the Hardcore History podcast, Tom Hanks was interviewed on Dan's second channel which was also a great listen.

    After all the jumps, manual refuels, startups & cool downs... We made it! Colonia was a bit chocker with carriers (it is the system for buying them in these parts after all), so I jumped the carrier to the Ogmar system (about 8.62LY away). Checked out Jaques Station (a station with FSD capabilities, originally built in the bubble) Once I've had a short break after all that travel, gonna get the engineering stuff done, travel around the region a bit & prep for the trip to the galactic centre.

    The Mandalorian was pretty solid. Quality dipped a bit in the middle but finished strong. The person who Designed Baby Yoda needs a pay rise though, think of all the merchandise sales.

    So they've started rolling out what's known as 'HyperFibre' in some parts of NZ recently. Country wide roll-out expected to happen in September. It utilises our existing fibre optic network, just an upgrade to the terminal installed at your house, and their switches. Someone posted this SpeedTest result after switching over to it recently: If you can't be bothered pulling out a calculator, that's 526MB/s down, 604MB/s up. I'm so tempted by it - but it would require a full upgrade of every piece of network kit I have, which is all limited to gigabit currently.
