Sounds good. I'll do some missions and try bounty hunting and getting horribly murdered in the sidewinder tonight. Then onto getting cash for the cobra. I'll probably buy a hauler midway just to make things interesting

Use this to plan the best trade profit in your hauler. You wont make millions at the start (quickest return lies in bounty hunting) but this might help especially if you're giving trade a serious try.   (Trading over multiple jumps) https://eddb.io/trade/single

You absolutely can bounty hunt in a sidewinder, just choose your targets very carefully. Nav beacons are a good bet for low-level opponents, as are unidentified signal sources (look for weapons fire detected, threat 1).

Thanks for the info :) Didn't actually switch to the hauler as earner 2 million quickly with the courier missions and switched to cobra. Now I bought a passanger cabin and did a few passenger missions.

Now I'm thinking of either gathering 4 mil and buying a type6 for trading https://coriolis.io/outfit/type_6_transporter/02A4D4A2D2D2D4C-----0404030343012h.Iw1-kA==.Aw1-kA==?bn=19.74%20LY.

Or going the crazy route and outfitting a hauler with discover scanner and a good drive and going exploring https://coriolis.edcd.io/outfit/hauler?code=A0p0t3F0l3d3s3f2---2u432i2f.AwRj4ig%3D.Aw19A%3D%3D%3D..EweloBhAWEoUwIYHMA28QgIwV0A%3D&bn=Kamikaze%20Explorer.

EDIT: ok, decision made. This is exciting. Can't wait to see how I'm gonna die :D

So, I thought it would be cool to go to the Coalsack nebula, for the glorious sights.



WHAT WAS I THINKING?

Seriously though, exploring is cool. I'm having a blast.

I love exploring too. (Diamondback explorer bias as you can see from my profile pic) add CMDR Dobbsy already if you haven't and fire me a o7.

Here's a nice video. Somewhat old news but not mentioned in this thread. I don't know who started it, but I certainly know who finished it.

Dirty imperials.

Have you been to the thargoid base yet, or seen the sleeper ships?

I don't have the game but I keep tabs on it as it has potential to be something I might want in the future. I've been to the Thargoid Base via Youtube, but that's the first I've heard of Sleeper Ships.

Sorry for a late response, was on holiday. Invite sent. I'm in ADHD mode, switching between exploring in a hauler, transporting passengers in a cobra and trading in a type6 (should probably do transport runs in the type6 as well now). Will switch to bounty hunting in a Viper soon.

This game is great!

The Viper is cool.

But Witch Head nebula is cooler



Slowly thinking about buying Horizons

Don't think.   Buy the pass.   Then get the 2.4 pass.....

If you get Horizons you get the season pass, too.
To consider the Earth as the only populated world in infinite space is as absurd as to assert that in an entire field of millet, only one grain will grow. - Metrodorus of Chios
I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities. I could only imagine the GTVA warriors giving a mighty KIAAIIIIIII shout as they worked their triggers, their biceps bulging with sinew after years of Ivan Drago-esque steroid therapy and weight training. - General Battuta

Phew. Now I just need to wait for another steam sale. Judging by what I can see on steamdb, it might happen around September, so enough time to get burned out on the standard content.

Battuta in his vette, "The Tequila Hangover" was the biggest threat to my safety lately ;)



He knows why.

Sounds like the name of the ship is a reflection of the flying of the pilot. ;)
