    Ahhh, yes. That is a little confusing at first. The game differentiates between navigational targets (planets, stars, signal sources etc) and interaction targets (ships, beacons, canisters etc) and they behave differently. The round targets (yellow semi-circle) are things you can arrive at, these are just points in space, not things you can interact with. Everything else will have angular target brackets when selected. Another way to think about it is stuff on the navigation tab is just destinations, while stuff on the contacts tab can be scanned / shot / picked up.

    You can also do Meta Alloy delivery missions from Maya for mega bucks. Can't remember the station name though! Just on my way back from the galactic core now. Swung via a few points on my way out (including Colonia, Great Annihilator, and Black in Green) and tagged some nice Earth Like World's, and a system with 5 black holes too. Sagittarius A is a lovely place to get some screenshots, I love the effects the black holes cause on the surrounding area.

    Last time I was in the area, we had just reclaimed Mukhang, and we owned a number of neighbouring systems too (3 or 4). That was about a month ago though, might have changed since then.

    If your scanner is in a fire group, it will deploy hardpoints by default when you press either primary or secondary fire outside of superscruise. You can turn this off in the control options, but I don't know if you will need to manually deploy your hardpoints to use your scanner. Not sure what you mean about regular scanning. You just have to be facing your target (so it sits within your targeting area) , and within a certain distance (depending on your scanner and the objects mass) before scanning will start.

    I think you need to cycle to the fire group with has chaff assigned before you can use it (thing in your utility slots are always shown on the Hud). I think it is worth doing all of the tutorials except for the advanced combat one before starting the game as there is no in game help or tutorials at all, so you need to know how to dock etc or you will be stuffed.

    Bigger green bar means more rolls / weapon swings / longer sprinting etc, yes. Edit - the amount a roll takes is fixed.

    The DLC is nothing like the dungeons at all; it's absolutely brilliant, and a mandatory purchase.

    Do you have to 'redeem' those decals, or will they just be there in the livery / outfitting immediately?

    I decided to take a break from Mukhang while waiting for the election to begin, so headed over to the latest CG to fight in the conflict zones. This would be the first proper combat test for my Corvette (outside of 1v1 interdictions and assassination missions). I was playing in open initially and it was going OK, but there were so many players in the CZ that the Cartel ships were getting wiped out in seconds of spawning. Also, the huge number of players meant that the game was frequently dropping to about 5fps during combat. I decided to drop into solo as the poor performance was really bumming me out. Things went quite well for a while and I banked about 5mil in combat bonds with any issues (and about 20mil in massacre missions). I was finding that SLFs to be quite frustrating; the fighters were sometimes getting destroyed instantly, or would often get confused and end up miles away from my ship. My crew man, India Bryan, was developing well though. I recruited her as a Harmless rank, and I'd trained her up to Dangerous and she was getting quite good at chasing down ships that tried to bail out of combat. I joined a wing with @Floshenbarnicaland we pretty much owner the CZ for a while; but a while later I was fighting solo again and I found that every single enemy ship in the CZ suddenly turned on me, my shields only lasted about 3 seconds, and my hull only lasted another couple of seconds after that. There was about 8-10 ships on me at that point. After a very salty 17mil rebuy (which is discounted from 22 for some reason) I was heading out to the CZ again when I realised, India Bryant was gone! My trusty fighter pilot had bitten the dust along with my first Corvette loss. RIP I turned around and headed back to the crew lounge for some fresh meat. My next two forays into the CZ almost ended in disaster too, with all the ships deciding to focus on my at the same time. It took another couple of runs before I realised that having the fighter launched dramatically increases the amount of aggro you attract. I just did another run without using the fighter and my shields didn't even drop below 90%! I think it might be time to park the SLFs and just use the big guns. It's going to take a fair bit of killing to get into the top 10% for the CG now. Up to 12mil banked so far and still in the top 25%. I also noticed that you crew still gain experience even if you don't launch them in a fighter! My new crewman, Howard something-or-other is up to Novice already!
  14. Any word yet on how much this will be on PSN?
