  1. The best tip I offer regarding landing is to switch to the alternative controls to fine tune your position before landing. Turning this on allows you to move the ship left or right without turning the ship.
  2. Took me weeks of playing and researching on websites to learn all the game''s mechanics. A very steep learning curve. If you have any questions at all let us know.
  3. I'm currently playing Vampyr and I was just chatting to an old woman in a hospital bed when out-of-the-blue, mid-conversation, she used the word "cunt". It was so unexpected. In Bioshock I remember entering one of the flats in Olympus Heights and there on a sofa in front of a TV were two dead children. I've seen skeletons of children in games before (Fallout 3) but never bodies. I was genuinely shocked and moved by the scene. I tried to use Telekinesis to throw them across the room but the game wasn't having it.
  4. I posted a week ago that I was near the end then I spent another week to actually finish the game on Saturday. Its taken over four weeks to complete it, well over 200 hours, and i barely did any challenges, only discoverd half the animals, and only killed four Legendary''s. I then spent a few hours doing the odd left over side missions then wiped my save and started a new game. One of the best open world games I've played in years, probaby Skyrim, certainly the best looking, and easily my GoTY.
  5. I leave my game in standby mode and every few days when I continue playing the framerate.is awful so I just quit out of the game, reload and everything's fine again. I play on the Base XBOX as well, pre-launch patch because I have no Internet, and have seen no noticeable frame-drops beyond this resolvable issue.
  6. I was just making my way slowly across a county hunting Pristine animals to sell the pelts to the trapper and take the meat back to camp when I spotted a large bird way up in the sky. Through my binoculars I watched this Bald Eagle swoop down to the ground then fly up into the sky again carrying a rabbit! I've never seen that before. I shot the bird, watched both animals separate high up plummeting to the ground, then i picked up both animals. I have so much to say about this game, its one of the most absorbing, relaxing, realistic open worlds I've ever played in. I've been playing this solidly for over four weeks now, I think I'm nearing the end, and I'm not tired of the game at all. The story and characters have been great but what keeps me playing is just traversing the gorgeous landscape, hunting for food, exploring, and living under the stars. Oh and sudden bouts of extreme unprovoked violence.
  7. There''s got to be a hotel I can sleep at in Saint Denis surely. I've been here for two days doing missions and can't find a place to rest up.
  8. I love my horse. I pat it, feed it and brush it regularly, trying to make our bond as strong as possible yet he remains terrified of me because almost every time he sees me dashing up to him to jump on he shits himself.
  9. Where are the hooers? I think I met some upstairs in the saloon in Valentine, but I can't get so much as a simple hand job from them.
  10. I was riding down a path when I came across three O'Driscols holding up a carriage. I listened in on the conversation and they ended up killing the driver of the carriage, so I unleashed hell on them until all were dead. While i was looting the bodies i got to thinking about the poor carriage horses just being left there in the middle of nowhere and wished there was an option to set them free.....then discovered there actually was when I went up to them! I was so chuffed. I've freed so many carriage horses sInce then giving me an enormous sense of well being, which completely overides the guilt of killing and looting the innocent carriage drivers in the first place. I'm a carriage-hatin'-horse-freein'-sum bitch
  11. The new mining mechanic sounds good: https://www.pcgamesn.com/elite-dangerous/elite-dangerous-mining?amp
  12. I've loved this game from release and only played on authentic. It took a while but after a LOT of practice you really get a feel for how to account for bullet drop and wind (find the right rifle that suits you though as some are more challenging than others). I made few videos: I love how open each map is to play around and find favourite shooting spots. And pulling off a long range shot is immensely satisfyingly without any aids switched on. For me it's the best game in the series and I hope there''s more to come in the future.
  13. If you added Meatball to your friends list then you won't be...trust me, he''s been ruining my leaderboards for years. Grab the fastest car you can, work all night practicing every corner until you finally nail the perfect lap. Then check the leaderboard to find that Meatball is 10 seconds faster........driving a Mini. (Bastard)
  14. The docking computer to me is a luxury module, I've never felt the need to have one, nor would I waste a slot carrying one. The Sidewinder is the smallest ship in the game so you really shouldnt be having any issues parking one however why not buy one and try it out? Try everything out, tailor ships to your style. The beauty of the game is that all the ships have strengths and weakness and that there isn't one that does everything. It's all about the tailoring, tinkering, customising and play-style choices. Some ships lean towards certain strengths like the hauler ships having a lots of cargo space but are slow and heavy and so not the best for exploring or combat, some ships excel at combat but lack the cargo space or jump range, and some ships like the Cobra or Python strike a great balance between all professions by being very versatile when it comes to customisation but the price they pay for that is they aren't quite as good at any profession as the ships specialising in them. If there was a ship that excelled at everything, had the biggest cargo space, had the largest and most weapon hardpoints, have the best jump range, the fastest boost, ran at the lowest heat, had the strongest hull, etc then everyone would just use that ship all the time and that would make the game dull very quickly.
  15. Did you buy a prospector and collector controllers? Not essential but makes mining faster and so more profitable. Remember you'll need to stock up on mines if you do.
  16. In case you don't know, you can find points of interest (bigger than rocks to shoot) on a planet surface flying your ship. Fly to about 2km height, adjust your radar/scanner range to max distance and just cruise along at any speed you like. Eventually you'll see a blue circle on the radar denoting that there''s something there so turn and fly towards it, lower the scanner range so the blue circle becomes bigger and fly to the centre, stop and land. Get in your SRV, drive in a circle watching your scanner for large readings and go off to explore. It sometimes helps to dismiss your ship to stop it interfering with the wave scanner (your ship dismisses itself anyway when you get beyond a certain disrance.... something like 2-2.5km).
  17. The difficulty isn't like hitting a brick wall but there is quite a bit to learn. However you don't have to learn it all at once, just take your time learning the basics of flying a space craft, navigating from system to system, and station to station, doing a few delivery missions to start you earning. Don't feel you have to do all the tutorials at once, do a few then jump into the game and practice. As you get confident then you can start taking on a variety of missions or trying out one of the other professions or raising your combat skills a bit. It's very much at your pace to do what you want, and ask lots of questions.
  18. It can be fun on lower g planets by putting all your pips into engine, going full speed up a rise to jump, then click and hold the right stick to thrust and do some massive jumps.....especially across canyons.
  19. Have you done the tutorial? Don't forget you can adjust the radar size to see further (on xbox I hold A and use the bumpers to adjust range).
  20. I've destroyed a lot of cargo scooping. A little tip for the missions that require you to search and collect trade data/black boxes/salvage that's floating in space ......once the planet has been identified and you circle around it waiting for the exact location to appear, I think this location is random and appears roughly where you are circling. So make sure you are NOT circling in or very near the blue circles surrounding a (landable) planet because the mission objective will also appear there and will be affected by the gravitational pull of the planet, making the cargo move at speed towards the planet rather than just floating. You ship will also handle harder. Both factors make it very hard to scoop the cargo.
  21. Which materials? And no, LeChuck, no point to them, dead weight.You dont even need shields really so buy the lightest for a little piece of mind.
  22. Yep. The materials transfer with you between ships.
  23. Just to add that if you don't have a scanner then just drop down to the Nav Beacon and scan it. You can do this for all misions to find a location in a system.
  24. The Type-7 did me proud during the last delivery CG, with her 272t of cargo space I came in the top 10% and netted a whopping 29,800,00cr. With the winnings I bought myself a Diamondback Explorer last night and A-graded the necessary stuff suitable for exploration. I flew her from the CG to my home base and, with her great engine sound, long jump range and very responsive handling I'm already excited to take her out of the Bubble tonight with the goal of trying out neutron star jumping and visit a nearby nebula. Smoke me a kipper, I'll be back for breakfast.
