Do you enjoy such journeys, or is it just a grind?

Been keeping an eye on your thread on the ED Forums. Good Luck with your journey.

It's a very good thread. :)

Congratulations on finishing Sushi! That was quite the adventure, even the Devs are impressed. I wouldn't be surprised if you make it into the next ED newsletter.

Apparently. I had just shy of 10000km driven in the SRV before I started! :) I wouldn't have done it if I didn't think I would basically enjoy it. (Admittedly, by the end I was quite ready to be done, the short timeframe meant some uncomfortable squeezing of my real-life schedule and a bit less sleep than I would have liked).

Hooning around planets is something I've always enjoyed. You can get into a nice sort of zen zone leaping from hillock to hillock, trying to plan an optimal course through the terrain ahead, listening to the pleasant ambient soundtrack.

Been rinsing quince planetary scans.  Made 32 million yesterday.   How to invest it...... :confused:

Bought the game 2 days ago. Everything is clunky as hell. I love it.

It's good that I don't have the time to actually play it too much, as I can look up all the guides when commuting to work. Currently doing 50-100k delivery missions, as it seems that trading is not the way to go with the sidewinder. Will probably have a go at bounty hunting.

Don't do bounty hunting in a Sidewinder. You will get murdered.

I wept. Mysterious forces beyond my ken had reached into my beautiful mission and energized its pilots with inhuman bomb-firing abilities.

Heard about going to safe systems and waiting for police to attack pirates and then joining in to collect bounty at the end. That isn't an option I take it?

Not in a Sidey.

The problem is that Sideys are very fragile and can't dish out much damage; if you do get into a fight and the enemy concentrates on you (which is very likely), you will get shot down. As your accumulated bounty vouchers vanish upon death, it's very hard to to make more money than what you can get for doing courier missions (those are, after all, explicitly designed to let you get through the early game).

My recommendation would be to get enough money for a Viper and a couple decent guns to put on it, then you can go bounty hunting.

Also, assuming you are in a timezone compatible with Europe, you can try our elite Discord here, if I have the time, I can give you a leg up towards your first few millions.

I actually joined the discord through an old link posted in this thread :D will say hi there once I've got more than 20-30 minutes to play.

Thanks for the advice regarding first steps. Bought myself a better frame shift drive, so will be easier to do a few more courier missions.

Stack data courier missions with a goal of achieving a cobra. You could upgrade your sidey shields and try a has res site. If you get lucky and the cops are in anacondas you only need to get a few cheeky hits in on confirmed wanted (after scanning) BIG ships then RUN while the cops do the hard work.  Cash your multi hundred grand bounties in and you could have a million in an afternoon.
