I've done no prep/research due to free time being a precious rare commodity. And found myself out of fuel and monies.

Best trade route from a horizons start?

Your first steps in the game should consist of you picking up missions from the mission board. Those will be more efficient than trying to find commodities you can trade profitably on your starting budget and ship.

Depending on when you're on, chances are someone in the HLP Elite Discord will be on too, and probably be willing to spot you a couple tons of cargo to get you over the initial hump faster (said initial hump being defined as getting to your first Cobra and your first million).

Thanks for the info E. HLP Elite discord, googling that now. ;)

 
No, he means this thing: https://discord.gg/jgBbC

(Winging up with someone in a big ship with lots of guns and sharing their bounty payments is probably the most fun and effective way of getting starter cash, though. Join the Discord and we can set you up.)
The good Christian should beware of mathematicians, and all those who make empty prophecies. The danger already exists that the mathematicians have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine man in the bonds of Hell.

I've got the app, (I'm at work at this time) but the short code doesn't give me anything. I'm going to spend a bit if time finding my way around the app :yes:

When you are in a sidewinder first and foremost upgrade your FSD and do money by taking data couriering missions, you can stack as many of them as you please (as long as they don't have commodities as part of the recompense, in that case you need cargo space even to just accept the mission) and can get you to a better ship easily enough.

Hey Bullock I saw you in CQC! Use the Imperial Fighter, it's pretty solidly the best.

I tried it a few times but I need a better loadout for it, a lot of the times I found myself hammering at other people shields doing little to no damage which means enough time for someone else to tear me apart when I was too distracted to evade. :/

At least for the condor I have decent weapons and the manouverability isn't too bad.

Feel free to add CMDR Tannik Seldon if you'd like. Although I spend at least as much time in CQC as the main game, at least when matches can be found.

FDev added a few new POI types in addition to the volcanism and surface life.

Destroyed SRV

Additionally, I've been finding ships that are rather out of place this far from the bubble(8.3k Ly):

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that

<Axem> it can be whatever you like!

Crashed SRVs are old, first shown in either 2.0 or 2.1.

Since it seems unfair to only post videos of bad games, here's a wing fight I FCed earlier today (mic input was not recorded so my tactical mumbling is not included):


It was very fun, especially the part where we won.

A curiosity: why only multicannons?
I usually put in one or two beams to wear down the shields more quickly on a different weapon bank, countermeasures have their own button.

Multies are way, way less demanding on your WEP capacitor, which is very important in high-level combat which is all about shunting pips around quickly for optimal performance; and with engineering they're just as good vs. shields.

That may not be the case for long. 2.2 added grade 5 mods for pulse lasers and incendiary rounds got nerfed. The meta is maybe about to be changed. Will have to wait and see.
If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong
