  1. I suspect I am one of the older ones around here (51). I also wear hearing aids usually. I have lost about 40% of the treble part of my hearing - probably too many weekeneds in Ibiza in the 80's These days I like something with plenty of clarity and as little weight as possible. I went for these because they are designed for telephony - not gaming. I dont need the bass boosting - actually the opposite. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B005HWEZGG/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    CIG v Crytek.

    I really enjoy watching Leor Leser. He gives very clear information about sometimes confusing legal facts. And where is Derek Smart? Will he just say the jdge was bought off or biased

    CIG v Crytek.

    Latest info and court judgement. Basically Crktek have been told they can submit a 3rd ammended complaint, but the judge has effectively thrown out all their previous complaints. https://www.docdroid.net/Jv5BRif/031129522308.pdf#page=6
  5. I get lost in a Starfarer. Not going near this

    first time at lorville

    I waited until the PU, then gave it a few more days befor checking out Lorville. A quiet Sunday afternoon quickly disappeared as I spent 3 hours flying there, wandering around - on all 3 metro lines - and then flying back to Olisar. Very impressive, just make sure the ship you use has a good power / weight ratio to pull out of the atmosphere. I was very pleasantly surprised with a Connie.
  7. Ive made about 65k in trips to Yela buying Iodine for Olisar. Only do it if you can afford to lose half due to cargo glitches. I dont start at 5k, I start at 35k. It makes the cargo mechanic simpler to run with and not have to build up. The downside of cargo right now - very slim margins. I specifically got the Caterpillar because with tight margins you need to do things in bulk. Also what I have to do at Olisar is store the Caterpillar with another ship, to get the cystem to recognise both the cargo AND ship, otherwise I cant trade. It will be dropped / replaced with something else once my Hercules C2 eventually arrives. Cat - 566 cargo, C2 624 cargo. Not sure what quite yet, but it may actually be some big land grants so I can put my flag in several places 4-5 large blocks in one place make a significant outpost of 256 - 320 sq km PS, I have a buggy for $15 I thought it was a bit of a steal lol. I am waiting to hear if the skins are still available for them too. I dont have particularly high expectations of its performance, but for shots runs on reasonably flat ground, its like a go-cart Use this for Cargo rates and profits. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/16vZzeCHnDIVRmKeqN4VHqy5Rm3nkkLrsig2odQTxuNo/htmlview?sle=true&fbclid=IwAR0ViIUoxXv0dvJcPxmf63CswewNZaLUpP96ZM2P1OXT-ZV-SwuIIEt4nkw#gid=1653049119
  8. The Cat isnt for Hurston It's for some cargo runs to earn money easily. I've gone past 100k so far and that just keeps stacking nice and easily.
  9. I have had a moment of weakness I now have a Caterpillar. It will be either sold or swapped out once my Hercules arrives, but it isnt a bad ship at all. It handles so much better than the Starfarer, that i'd put it almost on par with a Connie.

    Hesitant ship-decision

    Difficult one to answer. Currently and I suspect ongoing, cargo running isnt going to give particularly high rewards. As I understand it, at least part of the appeal with a Merchantman is it's ability to house shops and to trade.That mechanic isnt offered elsewhere. To counter argument is we have no idea when the BMM is going to appear. As long at they keep resetting things i'd be inclined to keep what you have. The Max is a great ship, but isnt due until the next patch anyway. While the Prospector is in game now, unless you are actually interested in the mining mechanic, there is little point in picking it up. IF you could justify it, then getting a Prospector separately would be amusing, or the Max when it appears. Both are useful ships. I'm not convinced I would step down from what you have currently though.

    This is how you fly.

    I think we should make it Tac - he is the most valueable

  13. Give me a nudge sometime on Team Speak. Happy to chat about what you'd like to do with all your lovely Industry ships

    Need Advice on Ship Selection

    The Gemini is the military version, as you know. I have the basic one. I have two specific ships in my hanger that will allow me to make money from nothing. Starfarer and Prospector. Assuming you have a game package, be careful what you do with it. Personally I'd take the Prospector any day because you can always find rocks to make money from. As far as Explorers go, We have a Free Fly week going on. Try what you have an interest in, see how they handle. For Exploration I have the Freelancer Dur, smaller, but very capable. The Carrack has also been woken up again too.
