The last mission log was in October of 2020. It’s been a while. And while I’ve been on an Elite hiatus for a few weeks now, I still have some things to share!Continue reading
I haven’t been posting a ton because there’s not really a lot of news to be had. Two things remain in-progress:
- Acquisition of Prismatic Shielding
- Columbia mining operations
The shields just take time. I’ve been working to get my ranking where it needs to be with Aisling Duval and now it’s just a matter of maintaining that rank and waiting out the clock. 2 weeks to go.
It’s proving to be pretty expensive but mostly because I’m impatient. I want to get the ranking done in one session as opposed to waiting for the material buy clock to tick over so I’m paying extra to stock more propaganda to deliver at once.Continue reading
We’re Back. A spaceship story.
It was a long trip but we’ve finally made it back to the bubble. The greatest thing I’ve learned from this whole thing is that if you’re heading out to explore by yourself, don’t bother with taking a Fleet Carrier. The hassle just doesn’t feel worth the benefits. It’s probably going to be a while before I do something like that again. Someday I want to visit Beagle Point but I’m in no rush. It was a really great trip, though.
We’re in Colonia! AND WE’RE LEAVING AGAIN!
And we’re gonna be stuck here for little bit. I just don’t have enough Tritium to get home and no one here is selling. So I’ve parked Colombia next to an ice ringed planet with a Tritium hot spot. I was never filling up Conveyor so I’ve switched Javelin from exploration to mining. I’m able to get a little over 100 tons a run in Javelin but at least I’m filling the hold and it’s usually pretty quick. The problem with Conveyor is probably my hardpoint configuration. I’m only running one SSD so I was running out of missiles before I even came close to being a quarter full. I can synth more, but then I’ll have to restock mats for that and that means pulling myself off mining…which slows the return.
So that’s actually what we’re doing now. This is what we’ve done.Continue reading
We’re close to the end of this! There have been some amazing sights so far and there’s still more to see! We set out with a goal of traveling to Colonia, seeing the goods along the way and obtaining an Elite rank in Exploration. At this point I’m in Colonia, I’m absolutely wowing you with the sites, but we’re only 75% of the way to Elite! So we still got some more work. Let’s get to it.

Man I need a better system for cataloging screenshots. I’m struggling. I’m trying to match the date I visited a system based on my flight log with the date the screenshot was taken but it’s just not working out. Doesn’t help that some of these locations are a little bit dull so I didn’t take a lot of shots.
I guess I need to just pause and put the system name in the screenshot as soon as I take it… Ah well… from this point forward maybe. I also think I’ll leave the dull ones out of mission logs. If you want to see the route I’m taking, you can here. Not all of them are winners but there are some amazing things to see out here.
