For discussing regular gaming nights and what we'll be playing.

I was on last night! My spider sense was right! Good rounds with Kasto and Archie on PUBG, I'll take 2nd place.

Elite - I'm up to about 17 million now. Probably sell my Diamondback which is excess of 3 million... need another 10 million to get a decent kitted up Asp Explorer.

Speaking to Niko last night it sounds like, while being an intergalatic taxi service is a good money maker, taking part in the community goals can give you bonus payments in the millions... so could be worth us trying that out, even multicrew it.

I should be on, not sure what I want to play but I'll be around!

Also 400,000 free if you log into GTA5 before the 6th.

Good runs last night, thanks for putting up with my elite noobish-ness!

No worries - We speak to Niko and we're all noobish :P

26 million - Almost time to get the ASP. Getting more interested in meeting up with Thargoids now :D

The engineer stuff is really confusing, but looks like its basically a dice roll. Want to improve your FSD roll the dice and see, could be better, could be worse. Improved my FSD by about 4Ly so I can do a 27 jump now in the Dolphin, but on the flipside it gets even hotter than it did before, only by a couple of % but still. Not sure how interested I am in this but I'll read online on what you can do with it with better grade stuff I guess.

Same! Got the Asp, reasonably good gear on it, maybe needs another 5-10 million thrown at it. I don't really like it :P but I need to get used to not being able to throw it into a docking bay... handles a bit like the type 6, slow to stop.

Up for any other games going on as well.

Just use auto-pilot!

I may be on, will be doing a 2.6 million transport contract I picked up before I logged off last time, quite a way in Light seconds from the entry point but 2.6 million!

Nice - I did one last night under the 'missions' section.

Once you get in good with sub-factions this is worth looking at; Planetary Scans.

Basically had to land on a planet, near a building (had to find it which is a bit weird at first but your scanners eventually just find it) 'scan' the data centre (a big tower in the middle) fly back to originating base (which was Rosseland Gateway in Zeesse - 1.6million. Combined with another drop off of 1.5 million very close and a Boom data delivery (80k but +rep) basically over 3 million for 15 minutes. As I'm always heading back to that station as a base anyway works out well.

Looking at Planetary scan jobs though, there are quite a lot but not all pay as much as that.

Excellent game Chains! Hoping for a workshop at some point! Been a long time since I've laughed so much. :D

Yeah it was hilarious - Definitely up for more when workshop kicks in or if anyone wants to try and farm the rest of the achievements I'm up for it anyway.

Thanks for the headsup on that Mach, might give that a go.

Good shout, I already have it and it's not a bad GTA-like mixed with Batman style combat. Too much time on it gives me motion sickness though :(

Development seems slow on Human Fall Flat (it's just one guy!) but the coop is very new so it's still active. It looks like you can join a Steam group to get access to the beta workshop so I'll take a look at that and report back. Yeah, although we've done the levels I'd be up for clocking those achievements for the extra challenge and trying to do the levels different ways as well. I reckon now we know the levels it would be a good laugh to have a race on them complete with unsportingly throwing each other off ledges :D

I went on last night for a quick blast and bagged another achievement really easily (going the opposite way on construction)

Also my new skin is ready.

I'll be on, not sure if I'll be a little late in part because I'll be creating a new skin for HFF before we play!

Enjoyed HFF last night, probably wait until Workshop before picking up again unless anyone has a good way of getting those final achievements.

I'll be around on Saturday night for a bit, up for some PUBG but probably be earning credits on Elite.

Yeah we took part in the community event - Basically just delivering certain materials to a certain station. Myself and Nuts got into the top 75% so we're in line for a minimum of around 9-10 million on Thursday I think, Chains in the top 50% so he is in for a huge windfall. Was pretty fun actually, and we made money in the process as it was basically just selling shit. Also me and Nuts ranked as Novices in Federal now, aiming for Petty Officer so we can get into SOL... just for something to do.

I'm going to re-install Rust, Kasto was talking about it last night and they've scrapped the XP system and gone back to the lootbox lottery system. Loads of updates and improvements we've missed.... might be a good one to get us all back into. Worth checking out anyway.

Wooo! I'll get it installed. I've been hoping we'd pick this back up at some point, I never really got bored of it before. Have they fixed the base decay though?

Online tonight.

FYI community goal in Elite - You have to pick up FROM the place you were at, so a fly back to Grant Dock for anyone who went back to Zeesse (like me) but only 5 jumps.

PUBG vaulting is actually quite impressive, they've done it well and means you can jump in and out of buildings really easily now. Optimisations, could be placebo but I thought it was running better. See what its like when it goes live.

Quickly tested Rust - As brutal as it always was. Looks great though!
