Indeed, I did look at those a whole back, but I thought the £46 price was better put towards replacing the entire throttle with one that came with such an analogue stick anyway.

Ok. Eng5 FSD and Guardian booster done. Now can I please never drive an SRV ever again?

Ok. I'm an Imperial Duke. Now can I please never fly a spaceship ever again?

Any tips for rank-grinding? I start, then see the mountain I need to chip away and walk away, head hung low.

Data courier missions between Ngalinn and Mainani - very short single jump. Just get a fast ship, make it faster, no cargo needed, install autodock and autoFSD and afk it as much as possible. Just keep one eye open for interdiction which very rarely happens. All Data missions from N go to M but missions at M go to N plus another place so best just take the ones that lead you back to N.

Stuff you probably know it I didn’t! A mission with imperial navy in the title is a rank up mission that will appear when you hit 100% of a rank but don’t worry if there’s not one because any XP earned at 100% rolls into the next rank anyway. When at N if you’ve taken all the missions and have only at 12 or less I’d hang back for the board refresh so you can get the max 20 but from M I wouldn’t bother waiting because more than half tend to go to the other system you don’t want.

I think it probably took me 6-8hours maybe? Not really sure because I was either watching tv or alt-tabed out most of the time. Now is it worth doing it all again for the Feds? Probably not.... not even sure it was worth it for the Imps because man that Cutter handles like an old cruise ship! I didn’t know the Anaconda had amazing handling before now ;)



TLDR but hopefully that made sense!

Good to know, I have zero rank with the Imps but a fair bit with Feds (enough for the Federal Gunship - Midshipman I think) so will look for a similar window for the Federales :)

You just head to a planet about 1k from sol and do stupid SRV busy work while shooting guardian drones. Maybe 45mins or so should do it. Oh and take a small ship because the terrain is hard to land on.

You only have to do it once then they’re available to buy for credits..... like engineering should be!

So I got this cheap for the console a few weeks ago but apart from flying through some circles I haven't touched it. Think I'm a bit intimidated by the scope of it and that I'm pretty crap at flight in games. Won't be playing until I'm at least finished The Last of Us 2 which is all consuming.

It’s dumb how excited I feel sitting on a carrier as it slowly makes its way to Colonia. Also you get a honk from within the carrier at each stop so I’m earning at the same time. \:D/
