    Currently Passenger missions are pretty much the only option for making fast, large amounts of credits even after the nerf I can still make a nice chunk just not as much as I could before.

    I have spent alot of time recently engineering my Corvette even more, and still have abit more to do to it but when this update drops I am going straight back to that system from the video earlier and see how my Corvette stands again.

    Bought a DBX and am going round scanning ancient obelisks for Ram Tahs mission, currently at 66mil reward, should be 67mil but I somehow missed one, found which one it is though, just have to drop back in on the way back to meene. 101mil reward will be nice when I've done, :D

    Well I bought a Beluga Liner, fully kitted it out to do passenger missions, and I have to say... "What a bag of ****!" :grin: The bloody thing keeps getting jammed and blows up in the slot! Which costs me 6million Cr to rebuy, and then you get fined just because the stupid over sized fins an the rear get stuck, and no amount of thrust in any direction will set you free. Anyone else had that trouble?

    If you get stuck in the slot, deploy and retract the landing gear over and over until you get loose.

    For reasons known only to Frontier your ship briefly noclips when cycling it's landing gear, allowing you to inch out of a jam.

    Couldn't find the last ancient scan that I was missing, so got a 100m reward, :D. So now I've got 135mil, what should I splash my cash on?

    I need to get my joystick out of the cupboard and get back into this I think. Has anyone set up a Bit-Tech private group?

    I had a spare 40mil, so I decided to buy another ASP Explorer and kit it out for exploring, so I took my first trip to Orion Nebula, only to be blown away by finding a station being built into an asteroid, and the vast cluster of stars together. :)

    Be careful with exploring, it's easy to get carried away and be out there for months at a time.

    Not sure if it's worth setting one up - given the size of the universe it's still unlikely we'll be playing together unless we make a conscious effort to group together.

    Yeah, I can see that. There's me thinking I've travelled a vast distance, only to zoom out on the galaxy map and be a smidge away from the bubble... Lol

    I'm happy to join a group depending on what you guys are planning?
