and one more: DON'T fly an M6

Why?

because they are useless, imho.
I have two, fly each of them for a while then went back to my mamba raider.


I'd change that to :

Dont fly an UNMODIFIED M6.

The only ship I fly is the Apricot Gunbus Smile

Don't think you can prevent NPC traders from entering a station by poisitioning yourself in front of the dock.
I was waiting for a power plant to produce enough cells to get to 9 credits, and I saw a NPC mercury was heading for the SPP, obviously to buy cells. So I put my own mercury in front of the dock expecting the NPC autopilot to maneuver to avoid me, SETAed for a bit, and promptly died as the NPC ship crashed into me, bumping my ship enough that it crashed into the station.

Don't forget to upgrade the shield on your new M2... I couldn't figure out why a couple of priates were damaging my brand new Titan. It had GPPC's and BPPC's everywhere...But everytime I got the ship under attack message I would look and it was suffering hull damage.. After repaing it several times at $20 Mill a wack I pulled it back to my base to look at it... Imagine my chagrin when I saw it still only had 1 125 MJ shield Embarassed

just a hint for getting across xenon sectors.

Dive!

dive below the ecliptic plane, as far below as possible, on seta, then go across to the gate you're trying to get to, then come up again.

just make sure to pray while you're at it.

it works for me (altho i dont do the praying bit, but you get the idea)

Don't forget to install windscreen wipers on your ships, you can't get out of your ship in the middle of a busy sector to clean spacefly (or the pilot whose ship you are about to capture's) guts off your windscreen

Don't cook your tea over the jets of your ship.

If your piloting a Hercules, do not dock or undock while another capital size ship is also docking or undocking. BOOM the hercules is so fat that it scrapes the edge of the other ship ( well the collision does the ship itself doesn't Sad ( go figure )

DONT, shortly after activating THAT part in the storyline where the paranid get paranoid, sit in paranid prime, hunting those few pirates, thinking that you can boost your rep again.

Well.... *if* you do sit in PP... make sure you know where the cap ships are.... OH LOOK a snowball...... uh-oh

While running LVs Race Response Fleets, don't accidentally hit a NPC station with Hammerhead or Firestorm missiles.

Result: Christmas Time, with a side order of Typhoons. Very Happy

I am actually tempted, now that i am in THAT part of the story line, to hire a few other races TLs and send them into paranid space... and sit back and wait for race responce fleets kick in.....

Serious hint. Don't get directly behind a pirate nova. The rear has an AHEPT. The front has APACs. Now which would you rather have hit you?
