Also, there is a yearly sale at end of november. it is their "anniversary sale". Ships bought then normally have extended insurance. So if you have 3 months insurance you can check the melt price and if its the same price during the same melt your package and rebuy a new package with higher insurance. Just make sure the package contains everything listed. Your package shows sq42 which I dont think comes with the new game packages (it is sold separately)

It is something to look into though and there is plenty of time to figure it all out first.

It looks like things are moving really fast with 3.3.5 on the PTU for the 1st wave already. I didn't expect things to go that fast, but this is great since I was way more keen on flying 3.3.5 than 3.3

Yea, most of the game stopping bugs were OCS related for 3.3 so once they got those down the 3.3.5 went really fast since it is mostly a content dump.

Im excited to have the new content to explore though! Screen shots IB soon!

As soon as it actually copies my account to the PTU which seems to be taking over an hour.

I removed a post I made earlier asking for help. I answered some of my own questions after some googling but as far as I am concerned this 'game' sucks the big one. I'm deleting it for now,I'll come back sometime next year,or perhaps 2020,or maybe 2021.

The next major patch (q1 2019) is supposed to redo all the flight models and make combat good again. (lot sof people played the new flight models last month andsaid it was a vast improvement.) Not sure if thats even part of what you dont like about it but it's on of the major things Im waiting on.

Basically I played my first ever mission since owning the game. Whilst I was retrieving a crate from inside a wrecked ship someone came along and destroyed my ship. What sort of gameplay mechanic is that? Then I have to wait 5 minutes for a new ship. How do I prevent that? I also understand that someone could also steal my ship. Can a ship be left with the door shut and be impervious to theft?

Then I had an issue using the quantum drive. It activated but the ship went nowhere. That could have been an error on my part,I'm not sure but I had been using it ok minutes earlier.

There's a lot of asshatery going on out there right now, and an asshat found you. Just one of the joys of online gaming. I'm interested to see how some of the upcoming "law and order" mechanics will curb this behavior, if at all.

You can't, that's the insurance claim time to get a new one. At least you're not waiting 15 mins like I do whenever I lose my Cutlass! Even my Arrow is 7 minutes. You can pay extra credits to expedite the retrieval if you don't want to wait that long.

No, you have to lock it via the context menu when you're in the cockpit. You'll see an option that says "Press to Lock" and "Press to Unlock." Click "Press to Lock" to lock your ship if you don't want anyone to steal it.

I've had that happen, so what I do is move my marker off the destination, move it back on then re-calibrate/spool. That's fixed it every single time so far. It could also be the cooldown time. Sometimes it shows for me, and sometimes it doesn't. The joys of a buggy "alpha"!

What he said.

But I agree. It has two major problems right now. 1, there isnt enough content so once the really dedicated asshats get bored they tend to go hunting noobs. Many games have this problem. I wish there was a solo / friend mode like elite has. 2, most of the missions are poorly designed or designed in such a way that they have multiple people going after the same thing. For instance you might get assigned to retrieve cargo and 5 more people will take the same mission but there is still only one cargo box. They do this to force PvP which I hate.

There isnt any work around for it right now. They have promissed an "offline / pve mode" but its probably very far out. So yea, if thats a deal breaker you should give up for now.

Though with the new moons etc it has gotten better since people are spaced out more but it'll probalby never fully go away. They seems to WANT that sort of design in their missions. They should at least tag the missions pvp / pve so you know when you take it.

I got an e-mail from RSI today about Alpha 3.4 being released. So,I decided to re-download the game and try again. I took the Covalex Shipping Hub mission.

This time it all went well although navigating around the derelict got a little confusing at times and took me a lot longer to complete than I had hoped. I couldn't understand why I couldn't complete the mission and eventually noticed the 'submit' button. duh

By this time I'd had an oxygen alert going off for some while and with no way of topping it up I started to panic because I couldn't find my way out of the ship. Anyway,I found the exit point and that space walk back to the ship seemed to take forever but I got there just in time. So,back to the base,landed and that was it.

A much better experience all round then and no asshats to be seen biggrin

You got lucky. Every time I did the covalex shipping hub mission pre 3.3 it was full of scummy griefers who would shoot you and or blow up your ship as you were finishing the mission.

The game is a lot better without griefers for sure.

Yup,it needs an Elite style 'solo' mode.
