  1. I came back because of Demeter and now I'm leaving again. I was watching Markee Dragon on youtube to see if DU was worth subscribing to again and saw that the Demeter patch was on the way. I didnt want to lose my stuff so paid a 3 month subscription and came back. I thought I would stick around if the game was good. So, My goal is to make quanta by offering a rescue/repair/boosting service and I have a space station setup for that purpose. With demeter, I find that I spend all of my available gaming time calibrating MU's, picking up the ore (from Ion and Symeon) and selling it. I have not done anything else since the initial scanning (which was boring as hell). I have unsubscribed. I have one month remaining and I think I'll keep trying to make some quanta for most of the month. I will then put my 5 best MU locations as HQ and wait until the game gets out of Alpha (could be some years). How the game makes me feel: (I may be wrong, but its how I feel) The tax system is causing me stress. Not the good stress that drives you to make accomplishments that you are subsequently proud of. The bad stress where you feel you are locked into a course of action that brings no reward and no way out.
  2. Thank you to the player who purchased my ore
  3. I just went to sell some Chromite at market 6. Best buy price is 18. I put 50K on the market for 30 which is the same as the cheapest price. I'm not expecting it to sell.
  4. Regarding atmo speed. I'm pretty sure burning up at lowish speeds is intended to prevent players moving into/through solid objects before the server has loaded them in. In other words. I would not expect the speed limit to be raised anytime soon, no matter how good you reasoning might be, because the game just cant handle it.
  5. On the outer planets you will find T2 and T3 on pretty much every scan. The current issue is that those T2 and T3 ores are not bringing in much more quanta than T1. When we consider the travel time/risk etc its not really worth it. Sanctuary is currently my most time/quanta efficient hex.
  6. As soon as a ship gets a lock on your ship the ship initiating the lock explodes. Sounds like fair play, right.
  7. This patch is the 1st time I have ever used buy now price for ore. I tried to sell garnerite for 2 weeks, constantly lowering my price to try and beat all the other players doing the same thing. Never sold any. Then, I had to pay tax. I imagine most players who need to raise funds to pay tax are simply selling ore at the buy price because They cant wait 3 months to sell at a reasonable price. The real price is only real if people are actually selling for that price. In a market where the real price is constantly dropping, its because people are not selling at the real price.
  8. Slow boating my ore back from Symeon and Ion takes a lot of time. The T3 ore I bring back (Garnerite) is currently worth 31 quanta. Just happens to be the same price as Bauxite. It really feels like I'm wasting my time.
  9. Yes, as it turned out claibration talents were a waste of TP. The skill that give us more calibrations was the only one required. Who new.
  10. Its my intention to keep doing this horrible MU thing for maybe one more month then put the best ones as HQ and shut down all mining. Then I'll go back to playing the game.
  11. OK, So you have to be there in person? No VR. EDIT: I just tried it in VR and it worked fine even without skill. I guess it depends how far your calibration goes down. Anyway thanks for the tip it will save time.
  12. So, I know nothing about PvP. From what has been stated I assume the following. 1) Pirate ship has at lesat 2 crew and 1 is a gunner 2) Pirate see's a ship is about to warp and they know its intended destination 3) They press the warp button within 1 second of the target pressing warp. 4) Whilst in warp and less than 2 su away, they target and kill the target ship There are a few things here that make this happening without a glitch/bug extremely unlikely. At least as far as I can see.
  13. I'm confused. Ran out? By that you mean you didnt pay the tax? You could have made it a HQ hex and not had to pay tax. Have you just come back to the game? Were you notified when Kor claimed your territory? If its less than 2 weeks you should be able to move your stuff off the hex.
  14. A notice was placed at your nearest council office on alpha centauri. Did, non subscribed players get notice. I know they were supposed to but?
