      I’d say it will eventually be worth moving this thread to a more secure location.

      Anyway, I’m sure we have all picked up a couple of pointers to share with the rest of the crew. I realise some of the things posted here will be obvious to some.

      Mine are as follows:

      Trouble finding the correct side of the station to dock? All stations rotate anti-clockwise, so no more going around the back.

      If your speed is too high while approaching an unidentified signal source, or similar, switch to your navigation screen, and either unlock your current destination, or lock on to something else. The *majority* of the time, you will slow down to your set speed, and you can select the original target again, without over shooting it.

      You’ll find a few places where missions on the bulletin board ask you to find items, that are actually already sold at that station. Worth checking, easy money.

      Bounties are safer to clear at outposts, especially if you have a lot of heat on you.

      You don’t actually need to remember which way the stations rotate (specifically talking about the rotating dice ones). As soon as you nav lock to them there will be arrows on the side of the hologram on the bottom left of your HUD which point toward the entrance.

      Leaving the fight with an annie to kill a civvy adder is not productive.

      Always have your landing gear deployed when inside a starport, it disables the boost so you don’t accidentally slam into the wall.

        I’ve done this more than once.

        Following on from this… If you are doing a mission involving illicit cargo… Turn off auto dock before you zoom in to a station or else when you try and stop it auto docks you in to a wall and you lose all your cargo. 😛

      One should definitely not boost out the envelope, hey Scanlon 😛

      Especially when there’s not enough room for the vulture leaving the station, the t9 entering the station, and yourself… 😉

      Let me know when you get back down here, I’ll drop off some goods.

      Keep a close eye on your fuel gauge when planning long trips.

      Remember your scoopable stars with this phrase:

      KGB FOAM

      Those T Tauri stars look so nice, but are a trap for young players.

        KGB FOAM sounds better than FOG KBAM, sounds like the name for Stalin’s fire extinguisher.. 😛

        You can also remember the scoopable star types like this:

         

        Slide up to the star all suave like and say ‘Oh Be A Fine Girl and Kiss Me’

        And then give her a cheeky little wink. 😉

      We need a lockable room to keep this one in and away from normal people….
