Setting up ED on my son’s PC with the spare Thrustmaster HOTAS X.
Initially he’ll be in and around HIP 17298 in an Eagle in the conflict zones, so if you see an Eagle getting around and not responding. It’ll be him. I’ve set it up as a basic bounty hunter and given him a list of who and who not to shoot (WEP etc).
He also has a short list of the combat guys (Vyvian, Hazara, NZSimian, Sketchy etc) – I think he’ll gravitate to you guys as he’s very combat orientated.
I’ve also set him up on teasmspeak, his name is LolWutHax or something like that.
I’ve told him if he flies anything else and even dares look at the Queen, he will die. As time goes on, if he stays interested I’ll start setting up other ships around for him.
Feel free to hurl advice his way and hopefully soon he’ll have his own account. Remember he’s using my money (approx 22m at this stage) so when upgrading etc, bear that in mind. In other words don’t spend all my money!! 🙂

Very nice, good to have another cadet on board.

At this rate we will be able to field a Cadet wing

So far so good.
Conflict zone – check
stupid maniacal grin – check

You should have seen JR’s face when he realised he lost his PPPoints to a CMDR this morning, he was less than happy.
I’m staying up in fed space, shit attracts flies so I’m dumping lots of shit.

He handled himself well, and well done Blaine – flew down & escorted him up – jump by jump to the badlands.
We smoked a couple of commanders… And got a sideways look from a Patreus CMDR for having an odd wing of ships.. but more than a few hundred tonnes of ships sunk.
I even got a reminder from Blain.. I had asked ethe to leave non-aligned CMDR’s alone, so when Blaine saw me lining up a non-powerplay commander he let me know.. thanks mate.. needless violence is not needed.

Oh. My. God.
I leave him alone with you clowns for one night. ONE NIGHT!!!
Get up this morning to find I’m in arse crack Fed Space and I’m extremely unpopular!!!
Stay local I said. Nooooo
😀 😀 😀 😀
You’ve created a monster.
How did he handle himself? Does he deserve a better ship? If so, what do you recommend I let him have?
19/07/2015 at 9:04 AM #3732
A hauler. Those things are just plain cool 🙂
I’d let him build up to a viper.
hows the funds? When i was winged briefly, shields were optional 🙂
19/07/2015 at 9:16 AM #3733
LOL! I’ve got 21m – but once I get back home I can roll some funds in the Queen.
19/07/2015 at 10:07 AM #3734
He did well mate – very fast learner & pretty keen to the fight!, and (perhaps luckily) another night where CMDRS were few & far between.
19/07/2015 at 10:18 AM #3735
Yeah, I figured he’d gravitate to you guys. Good to hear, is he ready for a Viper?
19/07/2015 at 10:22 AM #3736
Make him earn it… write down your balance, & let him earn what he can to outfit it… You look after it a little better if it cost you something.
19/07/2015 at 10:25 AM #3737
True. I’ll do that.
I’m so tempted to just buy the game for him but the Mrs would kill me.
19/07/2015 at 10:34 AM #3738
19/07/2015 at 11:01 AM #3740
LOL!! Quite possibly.
21/07/2015 at 3:51 PM #3765
Ok, he’s on his own login now. A few will have friend requests in game from him.
Ask him how he got the game 🙂
21/07/2015 at 5:33 PM #3769
Washing dishes every night until he’s left home?
21/07/2015 at 6:32 PM #3770
LOL, not even close.

“Found” your credit card?
No, even better: Asked the grandparents?

23/07/2015 at 5:56 AM #3793
I’ve just seen.
You sir, rock 🙂
23/07/2015 at 10:25 AM #3795
LMAO, me for making it happen, or him for doing it?
23/07/2015 at 8:25 PM #3806
Mrs Simian doesn’t approve, which is extra points for you 🙂
