I might need someone to buy them for me as they really don't like me then i can buy them off the kind person that helped me.
No probs. My Cruiser is docked somewhere in New York I think. I didn't end up putting missile turrets on it as I was very limited on turret space. Think I went for 5 Solaris, 2 Cruiser and a Light Mortar.

OOO, speaking of which, can you pick me up a French Mortar for the cruiser (I seem to remember they were better?).
Don't know if i will be on tonight but i will try
I thought you said you were on proper today?

I went for a fast firing rig on all class 6 turrets ( 8 x Milteuese :-) )making more of a fighter/bomber hunter which worked very well against fighters.

My rep with GRN was full green and one from the top so i though i would do a couple of misions to try it out unfortunately both missions i tried had wings of gunboats and i didn't have the fire power to sort them out and had to abort both missions as i was getting hammered.

That's why i was on this morning i was going back to Djon station to get a couple of heavier weapons for my class 7 turrets as i only have 2 x Cerebrus turrets fitted atm.  I think i pissed them off as the station now says i have to be more friendly with GRN but they are still full green?

Hopefully that will be sorted next time i am on and yes i will pick you up a light Trebucket for you before i head down from froggy land.  I didn't think it was games night tonight and i have cleaning to do :-( might get a bit of gaming in though.  I will hop on at some point and pick u up that weapon and come down and get my missle turrets if thats all right? 

Assuming GRN have forgiven me :-)

Shiny, TCT for that. So you just wanted 1 Liberty Missile Turrent yes?

Yeah, my cruiser could only fit 3 class 7's - so I had to stick with 2x Cerebrus and my Mortar.

It isn't really games night this week (as far as I know), but I remember you saying you would be on, and me and Greg will be too, so...

Well i did want two as two can take out a whole wing of fighters can't it.

I am now not sure i have made my Cruiser very good against fighters but it is lacking heavier firepower for anything else.  I will have a think and let you know before you finish work i might just get one GRN missle turret i wanted 2 x Liberty ones so i could fire them together.

I might need you to reset my rep with GRN if it isn't sorted tonight IYATSOP so i can get your Trebucket it was weird full green but wouldn't let me buy any weapons :-(.

Okay cool. Safest bet is for me to just not buy anything until you are online, hopefully you will have decided by then. What time are you expecting to be on by the way?

Yea no probs. We can sort that out when you are online.

So can i legally have a cloak on my Cruiser?

You can only buy them from the admin base correct?

Yes, you can legally have one. Although the fuel costs are back to the original settings. I myself am staying well away from cloaks though. They can be bought from the Admin base or player created bases (something I will be looking into - and reducing up-keep costs so they are viable for us to build :-)).

I though a cloak might be handy for getting out of trouble.

Yes we need to build Option Station Greg will have to build his own Adoption Station :-)

Best call it Gamic base then we can all use it.

Can you change the resource usage for stations?

Sorry to geek out, but if you are going to quote Farscape, get it right ;-)

Gammak Base

I hope/think so, I will be looking into it.

Well I think my dip into trading was an unqualified failure. I managed spunk 1.4.0 million credits to end up with 750.0 credits and didn’t complete a single trade run in the 5.0 hours I was playing.

Yes, it was interesting to say the least. As a gesture of good-will I gave you a strangely unround "9,240,500" credits as compensation for your troubles. 

So, let's recap on what happened shall we:

1. I am in New York, Greg is in Kyushu. I say to meet me in Manchester.
2. Greg takes the route through the "Tau's" and I go through house space.
3. Greg dies and loses all his cargo. He spawns back at Kyushu.
4. I suggest to Greg that he goes the way I did to avoid nasty ships.
5. Greg goes the same way again, only realising he went "the wrong way" after about 10 minutes flight time.
6. Greg dies again.
7. I decide to "admin" him over to me so we can go together (I am at Birmingham Station by now).
8. We set off for the mysterious "Cayman" system.
9. Upon reaching Omega-49 I check my map again to look for the jumphole to the system but cannot see it on my map. I ask Greg to check his map and he says he cannot see it either.
10. We head for Omega-47. The same thing happens.
11. I suggest to dock so I can check out the situation.
12. Greg gets into a firefight and ends up shooting the base he is about to dock with. They open-fire and he is obliterated. He loses all his cargo and gets respawned back in Manchester.
13. It all gets a bit blurry after then, but sufficed to say it didn't go well afterwards either, with one thing that I do remember:
??. I check the Wiki and see that there is meant to be a jumphole for Cayman in G3. of Omega-49. I use admin powers to give myself the full map and it is indeed there. I ask Greg why he didn't see it on his map when I asked him. After I ask him to check again he finds it. I facepalm and ask we play Garry's Mod instead.

The End

It was very funny and i wasn't even there :-)

I finally managed to get friendly with Outcasts and got the last couple of guns i wanted.  So next time Greg can have a twin Cruiser escort it may help.

Have we tried vessel to vessel docking yet?

I think we have been doing this wrong. I read you must use /acceptdock or something similar to allow another ship to dock at your ship. That is worth a try. I am also not sure if only small ships like fighters are allowed... it requires some testing.

It was. Funny, though ;-)

We here at Jimbobslimbob Freight Insurance are pleased that you are happy with the service. The incidents that occurred on Friday are unfortunate, but are probably due in-part, to you being a "Tricky Little Swine".

Unfortunately this incident has increased your premium because you have lost your no-claims bonus. As such, I must now ask that you sit facing the wall and duck for precisely 3.0 hours. This (for some strange reason) revalidates your insurance certificate and allows you to... OWWWWWWWWWW NO, MY WIFE'S GONNA KILL ME!
