I've an affinity for combat specific engineers ;) wait out for a few days and I may well be flying with you all soon.

Standard elite beginnings right?
Cheap fighter with no jump drive?

the ORIGINAL elite started you in an expensive medium multirole with a hyperdrive actually

(all player ships in e:d have hyperdrive though the starter one has really ****ty range)

More or less, yes. The Engineers offer different upgrade routes for your basic gear, you can use them to specialize your ship to fit your playstyle.

It's available on Windows, MacOS and the xbone. Windows and Mac clients can play together, xbone players are stuck with each other. If you want to join up, hop on the discord channel mentioned upthread, and we'll get a wing going; I'll probably be playing this evening.

I'm keen to get on but haven't bought it yet.  I'm due to purchase a new ISDS border collie pup or three this weekend and if I have change then that's going on POWER TOOLS to help me re-roof a garden building.

Right I'm in. (Not through steam but direct digital purchase I might add) so give me some of your commander names to search for.

I'm Dobbsy.



Hope to fly with you soon...

I go by "Anthem Z" in Elite. Hope to see the rest of the HLP crew sometime.

Another complete noob question, what happens when I inevitably die? Do I get any sort of ship save or is it all pay to replay?

when you die, you have to rebuy. Which means that you have a choice between paying 10% of your current ship's cost to get another one with the exact same configuration (minus any cargo you were carrying, of course), or starting over from scratch in the free Sidewinder everyone gets.

Which essentially means: don't take any risks unless you have the equivalent of at least three times the rebuy cost of your ship in your bank account.

And swallow your pride and downgrade or sell a couple of modules if you get near that point. It takes much, much less time to earn the money to buy the module again than it will to work all the way back up from a Sidewinder.

You should also weigh your ship's rebuy cost against the risks of whatever activity you're doing. Say you want to go farm bounties in a hazardous RES site — you can expect to make a million every half-hour (?) or so, but losing your ship once might cost you millions.

Your timing is rather impeccable to say the least what with 2.2 being released this Tuesday
Oh how I'm looking forward to having a fly deployable from my mobile turret platform
