My current cargo capacity in my Type 9 is 512. I think that's sufficient for now. biggrin

Generally, I’ll fill the hold to about 3/4 with limpets. If I hit a good spot and am refining faster than I’m expending collectors, I’ll dump ‘em as I need to. Better to have too many than too few, neh?

I do about the same. I’ll shoot limpets at practically anything too, so I go through a bunch of ‘em.

I’ve got another question that is a bit off topic but not entirely. smile

Have any of you encountered any female ED players either in game or in the forums? I would be curious to know if ED is the type of game that could actually appeal to female gamers. My gut feeling says no....

Then your gut feeling would be wrong Mr Panzer. Although I have yet to meet the female species in game,there are some that stream on Twitch and they are very good players.

I follow quite a few women on Twitch who play World of Tanks,World of Warships.

I'll be honest,I never thought that games would appeal to the ladies,especially war games and their ilk. I'm probably basing that on my previous experience with the ladies in my life. They loved cats. They loved horses. They loved cross-stitch and other girly stuff. But why am I playing that 'stupid war game' again?

That's definitely nice to hear! It's always a good thing in my book when a gaming community isn't a 100% sausagefest. biggrin

100% solo, even though it would have made no difference for my last endeavor, a trip to Colonia via a looong route through the Formidine Rift to Colonia (2500 systems visited; posted the link earlier already). Unlocked and leveled the Colonia engineers as well. But all that happened between April and June; Soon after I stopped playing again, to come back later, I guess...

You must have received quite a lot of money when you turned in all of that cartographic data!!

Yepp, it's in the first post of the linked thread, >3 billion. Which is also the first time I crossed the 1 billion cash mark, and I started the game back in beta wink
I don't have a big fleet either - a Type 9, a Python, an Imp. Clipper, an Asp Explorer, a Cobra Mk3, and a few Markerwinders (marking notable systems/stations).
Not much "goldmining" or "min-maxing"...

Holy cow! 3 billion. lol


I'm at 1.5 billion right now but almost all of it is from deep core mining.

Got to watch out though when you have built up a lot of info to cash in... if your ship gets destroyed before you get to a station, the whole lot is lost!

Indeed => solo smile
And I "sacrificed" a slot for shields to take the thrill out of planetary landings and finally docking again. Launched the trip at a time before the addition of another slot (an earlier "deep-space" trip outside the bubble I made without shields!)

Yes mate... I play mainly solo, but even when out exploring, I still get 'interdicted' from time to time when returning to a station.
I usually manage to evade but have been unlucky too.
Do you still keep weapons when exploring? Or do you ditch them.

I think though the interdiction attempts by the AI only happen if you are carrying any valuable stuff in your cargo hold. Surely the AI doesn't know if your ship computer has a lot of cartographic data stored?

No weapons for me, and I also did not load any cargo, despite the big cargo rack: Jolly Jumper (as configured on the trip, that empty slot is a new one that was not yet available when I started on the trip) Now I would maybe swap cargo rack with the bigger guardian FSD booster, and add an AFMU, maybe moving the cargo rack even to the empty size 1 slot.
This ship also runs very cold (<30% cruising), so less likely to be picked up on scanners (at least in normal space, not sure about super-cruise).

Interdictions usually only happen when you actually have cargo in your holds (and be it just a limpet), with no cargo the pirates scan you, mutter something and move on.

I finally did some planet surface mining a few days ago and I wish I would have done this earlier. I collected more selenium in about one hour than I did from mining several hundred asteroids over the course of a few days. Lol.

For the rare stuff like selenium and niobium, planet surface mining is definitely the way to go.

PM,
For all the higher grade raws EXCEPT selenium, there there are a few systems about 1500 ly out that have biologic sites where you can farm to your hearts desire. Google “crystalline shards”. I’ve made 2 trips myself. After filling my storage, I just use the mat trader ( and his usurious rates) to trade for what I actually need. Works best for me since I absolutely hate surface prospecting.
