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.

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.

Because my Gunship demands that I have so much dakka that the sound layering starts to bug up
And as mentioned earlier, it's effective against shields once you engineer them to hell and back

You're able to throw a lot of fire downrange which *typically* is able to keep shields under a consistent and constant fire
Specially once folks start deploying shield cell banks, it's always nice to be able to out output them

But, also as stated, Incendiary took a bit of a hit, but I haven't seen too much of a killing efficiency drop yet. I am however, less worried about my heat buildup so that's always nice

After doing some research I was able to determine the correct method for searching for volcanic sites on planets. After searching for about half an hour, I found some Silicate Vapour Geysers(Asp for scale):

There's also more for about another kilometer behind my SRV in this shot.

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!

Would you be willing to share your method? I've searched for guides to find geysers but have come up with nothing helpful.

N/M should have checked Discord.

If I agreed with you, we would both be wrong

Was this last night's race to see who could earn most in an hour'ish? I may have caught a bit of that and it was sloooooooow to watch.

 
It mostly was, but the video I posted is set to start playing right at the best part of the stream.

Is this still easy to get into as a new player? I assume its MMO type but I wouldn't be overpowered out?

I've only had it a fortnight or so and have less than a dozen hours under my belt. It's definitely not OP.  You've got a single player kind of option too.

It is reasonably easy, as long as you steer clear of PvP. PvP is currently in a state where being competitive requires more than a few hours of grinding for credits and gear; If you wish to jump in, most of us on the HLP ED discord channel (link somewhere upthread) will be able and willing to help you get over the initial hump.

So apparently I do not know how to fly or land a spaceship and would probably die immediately in real life. I'm not sure this is worth a joystick purchase yet.

 
Only buy a joystick for Elite if you actually want to play with one for fun: mouse is objectively the better control device. Also: go into controls and bind yaw to the mouse x-axis and roll to the a/d keys; it's much nicer to use than the default controls.

I bought the midnight paintjob for the Python, I couldn't resist.

Meanwhile it seems that the sale of the century CG is bringing quite a bit of money and for once it isn't stuck to the low tiers.

That might explain why I'm spinning all over the damn place
A mouse can be a bit too sensitive to manouver, especially something as nimble as the starting Sidewinder.
While the mouse is technically more precise, a Joystick is more fun and I dare say, practical, you can technically do without a throttle (the way the controls are laid out the keyboard is actually fine for Elite) but a stick, even a cheap one, is overall more intuitive.
