    Some deep-core asteroid mining in action! What a sight! Cheers to @TheLaw, @Phobos & @Noods for a good night of credit-making goodness!

    Well I got the Vulture last night. I had forgotten how bloody quick that thing steers, so easy to keep anyone within targetting range. Also I had forgotten just how shits its fuel tank and jump range are... lots of short jumps with lots of fuel scooping. Thanks to @Predz and @TheLaw for the extra credits last night when sharing missions... helped me with getting the Vulture up to a respectable spec.

    Recommendation: Dont travel over 300 light years to get a vital component for a mission to then swap your cargo hold for a fuel tank on the way back so the return trip goes a bit quicker, only to find out that said important component must have been in the cargo hold I decided to swap out

    Yeah, according to EDDB, I found that its anywhere between 30-50LY for pretty much anything required from Chamas. Did a few runs in my Type-9 yesterday (which for the duration of the community goal, transferred to Denton Dock so then I can fly a smaller ship there, then switch to the "brick" for the deliveries, collecting about 740 tons each run), but I'm planning on doing more since I was in the Top 10%, but fell back to the Top 25% (currently at 5,108 total delivered), and it's still only at Tier 2, so the numbers will more than likely keep going up, necessitating the need to complete more trips if I want to be in the higher bracket for the higher credit reward. For Grain and Fruit & Vegetables, I went to Cooper Station in Salibala (44.84LY) For Fish, I went to Wakata Port in Indras (44.99LY) For Synthetic Meat, I went to Melvin Terminal in Asturindjin (43.03LY)

    So, I've disbanded the squadron that TheLaw and I made, with plans to create a new one that those of us that play could join, and to prepare for the planned release of squadron fleet carriers in the December update. Any suggestions for a name? P.S - TheLaw voted for Team Super Cool P.P.S - I still voted for Team Alpha Wolf Squadron

    So, I saw my first Thargoid Interceptor (A Basilisk variant) And then it flew up to me and said "Hi!" from my right side window, with a nice little scan, seeing if I'm holding any of it's race's property in my cargo hold... Sure, I had nothing, so it just flew off and went back to attacking the megaship and... *proceeds to speed off with as much boost as possible and supercruise outta there* "Now that's what I call a close encounter!" - Captain Steven Hiller, Independence Day

    That looks amazing. I have been getting my brother into it lately... Managed to find a short trade route doing Basic Meds currently where we are buying for 230cr and selling for 4,900cr... And it is a quick trip both ends and only about 7ly between the solar systems. It is very nice making about 460,000cr per trip in my T6 Means we have managed to get him into a Cobra, making the game way more fun for him.

    I should have listened to my own advise... The AK Racing chair that I bought only lasted 12 months or so. From day 1 it was uncomfortable af. I just finished setting up the same chair Nev bought, much better choice. Bought it from here for those interested; https://www.ebay.com.au/itm//202065325605

    Well we all got to the same station (And by all I mean Noodz, Law, Predz and Phobz) Now if Shrive's installs it he can join us (Big IF) And Nev can come join us too... I have more faith in Nev than Shrive's

    I used to have the Dolphin, twas a good little ship (Had the Beluga Liner twice, overheating turd, though I didn't do much in the way of engineering in an attempt to mitigate the heat when using the FSD. Plus it's hobby is getting stuck in station doors). Nowadays for passenger runs, I just use the Anaconda or the Corvette (if I need to cook some pirate fools along the way...) Passenger missions can be pretty good money. I've mostly done the bulk ones (Transport Tourists, Politicians, Prisoners etc.), couple of jumps, get a mil or two out of them. Always have a laugh when some pirate faction offers me around 20k to sell them as slaves... *J Jonah Jameson Laugh* You Serious! I used to do sightseeing ones (can be a decent bit of money), but thankfully I didn't blindly take the ones who are going to Colonia (22,000 LY away). Travelling to the Guardian sites (up to 1,000 LY) are enough for me right now. In saying that, I do want to try and make the Colonia run one day. P.S. - TheLaw was docked in Spring Gateway, and he tells me he heard weapons fire in or near the station. Originally, I thought it might have been a fight outside the station with someone who got scanned. So I'm coming in for auto dock, when I see a chunk of metal fly past the entryway. Once I get inside, there's this hunk of what used to be a Beluga Liner (the previously mentioned "overheating turd") floating around the docking bay... sounds about right with those big asses on them, probs got stuck. One got stuck in the station exit a while ago, had to push it out with the nose of my 'Vette (nearly got fined myself while doing it!)

    Dolphin is great to fly... and passenger trips make some good money without much fuss really... Managed to make 1.5m last night in 3 trips and about 45 minutes. Only had some fun with my last trip as I took it and didn't realise I was taking a wanted person around the stars... had to keep myself from being scanned, but otherwise nothing worrying

    Shrive's auto docking computer had a hissy fit and wasn't working, so the digger had to land manually...

    Is anyone interested in the next Top Gun movie? I'm certainly hoping it goes well, although it's been a long time since I've seen the first one.

    How many mice do you have now? There must be an infestation happening...

    I managed to fly myself there... and then I looked to see where I could buy the required stuff. I think I flew past about 3 systems that I should have stopped at. Looks like closest system is about 35ly away that has any of the required supplies.

    Finished watching The Boys this morning before heading to the gym. Was rather interesting, the last episode definitely had a plot twist that I didn't see coming. The character development of Anthony Starrs character was particularly interesting. Keen for season 2.

    I straight up asked Predz before i started playing, do i need a HOTAS or joystick in order to play? Straight up said no, keyboard and mouse is fine. I think the kb&m is more precise allows you to fine tune your movements, specially against the harder AI too.

    "I'm saving so much money on a game ill probably never play" is becoming a common phrase these days for me. Beats investing into more socially acceptable options like housing or whatever. As for finishing ME3 Shrive, all i can say is i did and it was disappointing, such a kick in the nether region after such a great presentation in the first two games, be prepared.
