If I’m goin in system, I scan the Nav. If I’m just passing thru, I FSS it. Of course if I’m just in transit , I’m generally not worried about scanning the USS’s.

Yeah, makes sense. I was referring specifically to how you go about finding all the USSs in a system like the HGEs we were looking for last night.

On hunting T-9's, we need to locate a Anarchy system, high population, in famine and go to the "Distribution Center". Plenty of T-9's and they repopulate after we kill'em off. Bring a wake scanner for those "Data Mined Wake" scans as well.

Gotcha, Nav beacon all the way. Then, after 15-30 minutes, I’d go to the FSS when new USS’s spawn if I was staying in system. farming HGE’s

According to EDDB there are no systems meeting the anarchy and famine requirements? I searched and got nada.

Hey Wingnuts, ever fancy taking your Courier out for some combat? Dual Couriers yay.

Bohemond, do you own a small fighter? Viper, Eagle, Courier sort of things? I don't think you do. I could just look on Inara eh?

Why yes you do. A Sidewinder!

Yup, I checked last nite. Nada with those attributes.
Negative on the small fighter, D. Been toying with the idea of rebuying a Vulture tho.

Sideys dont count nope

You probably still have all the modules from your Vulture eh?

That’s a negative, Ghostrider. Sold my Vulture before I went down the rabbit hole. Only thing holding me back is the dearth of hard points on it. The power issue I can ameliorate with engineering somewhat.

Ah, gotcha. Yeah, who wants to start over right?

What weapons would you put on it if you did?

That’s the rub. With only 2 large hp’s, prolly a pair of long range PA’s. I’d have to Coriolis it and see if it’s even feasible. I’m pretty stringent on my ship attributes, especially jump range and shields. The V being so power constrained is a pia.

It works! Threw this together between customers. No idea what experimentals you'd want on PAs, never used them.

But this is a reasonable combat crate.

Vulture PA mockup

Good speed, good jump, good shields and integrity

Might be too hot?

This is what I've come up with so far. Not optimal.

I just thought some small-ship combat might be fun. A wing of uberCouriers would be cool smile

My Courier four-pips faster than the Vulture can boost smile

I flew it again in a high RES in Exioce last night. Bumped the rank 4 points which is great. But more than that I am having so much fun doing this in the Courier. It's like a jet fighter. The cockpit imparts that vibe, but the ridiculous handling does too. After flying my half-done Krait the other night with you guys, getting back in the Courier was awesome. So glad I built this ship.

Maybe something like this?

Heat spikes would prolly be an issue firing.

Yeah, that's what I am talking about. I gotta say the Courier build was much more fun than any other ship I've built. Just such an interesting synergy when you're trying to balance speed, protection and firepower within the Courier's limitations. And fun to fly, but I might have mentioned that.

I hope you don't mind, but I want to shift the Courier build talk over to the Courier build thread. I'll make a post there shortly. #%&*$# customers keep getting in the way of my Coriolis work biggrin
