"how can I help you sir?" -- take me to.. oh nevermind

Although I still laugh my ass off at times when riding a cap ship across GT or MA, the fun in it is wearing thin.

Particularly when the highways are going the wrong way and the cap ship used to be a decent way to paddle upstream, saving a good bit of time.

I've undocked from ships still spinning from asteroid glances along the route, upside down and evrything in between.

It seems the XL (fight only?) ships may be immune to bouncing, spinning and twirling their way across asteroid fields, but the extra time they take in positioning and boost speed is kind of a pain too.

It's ironic that I'll pass through stations, gate structure, and other ships but asteroids are now impenetrable.


If this bumper pool cap ship riding is for the sake of realism I think that it's lacking further realism, like using missles or guns to clear the way.

You can avoid the bouncy-bounce by going to external view and zooming all the way out while travelling - works like a charm :)

Really?? Interesting. Will give that a try. Thanks for the tip.

I use the external view from time to time but generally catch up on trade or station related stuff during the flights.

..part of which how I can cope with the barf taxis, being bured in the menus.

I got my Skunk stuck inside a station and an ice asteroid and could get out using the external view, so you can use it for that too.
