Nice! That will be next :haha:
I think I want to space truck in comfort. Just did some painite mining, so my balance is just over 500 Mil. I was going to wait until I made Elite in trade so I can get the 10% discount at Jameson's but I may not be patient enough.

I found a video with a good reliable grind for Imperial rank. It took me the better part of 8 hours to go from Serf to Duke. I wish grinding engineering mats was as boring but productive. That is the next step. Now that I have the cash, I need to start grinding up the Engineers. I only have Farseer at lvl 5.

Ah well. Gives me something to aim for I guess.

Yeah exactly. The grind is annoying, but it is something to do with a fixed end point at least.

Ranking has been decently fun, since I get interdicted all the time, get to practice fixed beams :D

Might want to hang on to that 500M, the December update has those Fleet Carriers coming, 500ly jumps, but runs on different fuel apparently.

The Fleet Carriers look great I think. Very neat idea and implementation. I'll never have one at the rate I'm playing but that's OK :)

(Starcraft voice)Carrier has arrived

I can’t imagine what it will cost, I’m at 800m on the Vette so far 😂.

One cool thing is the number of landing bays, at least we will be able to keep all our ships together without having to move them all the time.

I just worry how much grinding err personal narrative will be required to jump. 500 ly would make bubble to new colonia a lot more palatable.. but not if you need 20 hours of shooting rocks in a srv

Yeah, what they put in the forum post made me chuckle:

"Purchasable with a large amount of credits."

My money is on at least 3 Billion. Basically 20x a discounted Vette/Cutter. Thats not a insane amount of money unless they nerf void opal farming.

They mentioned on the forums they are going to do a FAQ thing later so we will see.

Void opals... I really should try that before it gets nerfed.
You can do double Panite spots too, for the more traditional mining. Still making tons of cash that way.

I put ED aside for some NMS though. They both have their pros and cons. And now D3 has its new season, so I have to do a bit of that too. Keeps me busy.
