The weekend was half productive. Half set back….So 0 net? That can’t be right. Cause I’m up near 9 mil. BALLA
I lost my ship a few times this weekend. But overall it was still more money in the fund for the Fer-de-Lance. I also got to fly with CMDRs Valthonis and Kadak (separately).
Here’s CMDR Valthonis just after he gave me the bird….while inverted.
And here he is performing a flawless docking procedure. Like…for real…dude can fly.
Valthonis and I were hunting in an RES in a beautiful ringed planet.
I’d built up a sizable unclaimed bounty amount for the Alliance. So between hunting sessions, I jumped out to LHS 3356 which had an Alliance aligned stations. Thanks to Valthonis for doing the leg work in finding the system! Would have taken me a good while clicking around the Galaxy Map. He found it on a website. I need to remember to get that URL from him (UPDATE: If you missed it in the comments, this is the URL http://elitetradingtool.co.uk/
I logged off after turning in the bounties. When i got back on the day after, Kadak shot me a message and I told him I’d meet him in LHS 3505. I’m really liking 3505 as a hunting ground. There are several types of RES sites within a short distance of a full service station. It’ll come in handy when canopies blow out. I could probably downgrade my life support system and save a little on my power draw. Right now I can fly for 25 minutes when the canopy fails. I won’t need all that time in LHS 3505 and I’m having to manage modules to keep the power draw below 100% when deployed. There have been a couple of times when I’ve overdrawn and when that happens, basically everything shuts down. I had to reboot while under fire. That was a nail biting moment.
Flying with friends is a lot of fun. It’s nice to know that when you’re shields fail, you can pull your wing-mate off their target to help take your pursuer off you. It’s also fun to watch them loop around for a strafing run only to slam right into an asteroid. I laughed at Kadak for 10 minutes…cause I’ve never done anything like that…
Fly safe, CMDRs.

Always a fun time to fly with you, NotAnNPC. And thanks for the kind words on my flying chops; I’ve been playing flight sims since I was 8 y.o., and got my pilot’s license when I was 17. As you can imagine, Elite is a dream come true for me.
