I’m coming out of a Elite lull. Having only played a half a dozen times over the past couple of months, I didn’t really have many updates to make but after hitting a milestone yesterday, I realized that I played nearly 10 hours over last week. February and March saw me playing a few new things, going back to some old favorites, but nothing really latched and took up my time.Continue reading “Mission Log 60”
I did not rest on my laurels over the new year break!
Well…I rested…but I played games. Mostly Elite. I need to start posting the playlist again cause I’m actually playing more than just Elite.Continue reading “Mission Log 57”
Greetings, weary travelers!
I hope everyone had a great Holiday however you celebrate it. And if you don’t, I hope you had a peaceful time of year!
Christmas is over and I spent some time with family and got a bunch of cool stuff! But I also got a good bit done in Elite! So let’s chat about that.Continue reading “Mission Log 56”
A little bit of tweaking to the site theme! It’s a free account so it’s limited in what I can do, but hey…it still looks decent.
I’ve made it a little over halfway to our final destination despite some issues with GPU drivers and some bugs that Frontier says they patched today. Then we can turn around and head back home.Continue reading “Mission Log 55”
Enough time has passed:
More than enough! So, I go through cycles. Long stretches of doing a thing and then long stretches of not doing a thing. So I’m coming out of both an Elite Dangerous lull AND a not blogging lull. I started playing again a couple of weeks before the latest Beyond update and, with the update, I’m feeling like writing stuff down again. I don’t know. It’s weird. And I don’t know how long it’ll last (the writing thing) so let’s take advantage of it, right?!Continue reading “Mission Log 54”
Money generation has become a slower process since the last update I feel. It’s like they swapped rank and money.
Oh well. I’m still flying a space ship. And it’s still fun as hell. I’ve been doing a mixture of passenger sightseeing tours and wing missions to gain funds for the Corvette fitting and it’s been going pretty good! Since Mission Log 52, I’ve been able to mark off the Power Plant and Thrusters from the list on my Short/Long term goals page. I can probably knock out the smaller upgrades pretty quick and then focus on the last huge one. Armor upgrades are some serious coin.
Part of the added benefit of the sightseeing tours is gaining a Pilot Federation rank of Ranger!
I’ve gotten pretty good at remembering to honk whenever I’m jumping around. I usually only take passenger missions with 2 or less stops and payouts no lower than 2 million.
Wing missions (specifically for deliveries) seem to have been changed quite a but since launch. When they started…I could get 7 million for moving 2-3 thousand tons of cargo. Now I’m seeing 7 thousand tons for 3-4 million. Which sucks because it’s absolutely not worth the time. Over the weekend, though, I happened across a 5600 ton mission with a 10+ million payout. Even better, some Hammer Wing members jumped in and helped out. They picked up around 100 tons between the two of them but it was more about getting the the chance to cash in on 10 million without a lot of work. Here they are delivering the final loads just before I completed the mission
And here’s a random GamerCow that I ran into!
