Last couple of days I put the work into unlocking Professor Palin, and Chloe Sedesi. Their requirements are the same: Explore 5000ly from your start, and provide 25 sensor fragments. I jumped in the Endeavour (my AspX) to make the journey, which wasn't too bad thanks to the ship's 60ly range. I started off by taking the tour of Orion, narrated (kind of) by William Shatner. After that I ran into a little trouble because a lot of space around Barnard's loop is sectioned off, requiring permits that you can't obtain. So I had to veer off over into the Sanguineous Rim to finish the whole 5k ly distance. I made about 7m cr from the trek though, so not all bad.

 

Getting the sensor fragments was simple enough, there's crashed Thargoid ship in HIP 17403. You can get a load from there. I suppose I should unlock Selene Jean next, but I'm not sure I fancy mining.

 

Might start working on Federation rep next. to unlock the Corvette.

 

As you are in Vr player you may know. I played this well over a year ago in VR but the galaxy map was a bit fucked to navigate in VR.  I'm wondering whether that's been fixed. Can't remember if that was because I was playing with the Trustmaster stick.  Have you encountered any issues with the map and what controller do you use ?

I'm using the Thrustmaster PS4 HOTAS, it's compatible with PC. The map controls the same as it does on PS4 with the stick. 

 

I haven't had any issues, it's been fine mostly, but I think that's because I'm used to the quirks of using the map with the HOTAS on PS4 Elite.

Now that the storefront updates have finished shaking out, I was able to get the paint job I wanted on my new ship and take it on its maiden voyage to Sol after a shakedown/engineering cruise to Felicity Farseer earlier in the year.

I like to think of it as a Super Cobra. After a lot of exploration and tourism to pay the way to it, I think I’ll go back to odd jobbing my way around the cosmos.

It's more like a Super Duper Cobra. It's a genuinely great all round ship.
