Yep, couldn't be much better. Just don't overthink that phrase, or you might just end up tumbling the words so it turns out horribly.

Hey since neither of us have lunch today, wanna go grab finals and break to take a hangout from lunch?
User avatar

Yeah hahaha, although that might get a chuckle and show how nervous I am to her, which with shy girls would probably help out unless I'm wrong.

Well, plan didn't work to go to lunch but it ended up that she isn't really interested in hanging out and that pretty much means not interested in me. Oh well, plan to remain friends and maybe things could change next semester. Now I can focus on my school work a little better.

#204338 - alstorp (12/08/2015) [-]
Well what did she say? Don't give up that easily, she most likely doesn't know you well enough to start being interested, make her know you and she might fall.

#204339 - syrenthra (12/08/2015) [-]
I'm only giving up till next semester (this is finals week so yeah). Her roommate who has been my wingman in this just asked the girl about me wanting to hangout today and take a break from studying and her response "I'm not really interested in hanging out. I'm sorry."

I plan to continue being friends with her and continue getting close to her and become better friends. But with a lab, project and 2 exams for the next 2 days, I need to drop that off my plate since there isn't much more to be done in this short time.

Not such a bad rejection at all, so I wouldn't say she's out of the picture then, keep at it, but yeah, keep your life in check first hand priority.

i got no fucking clue what im doing but im raking in what appears to be small amount of cash now than i compare it to what other people have....great game. maybe one of these days ill find humans somewhere in the online community...

im a trader.


im thinking of upradging to the explorer...but i hear its extremely costy to upkeep so im kinda repulsed by that
User avatar
#71 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
You mean the Asp? It's not too bad, but it's not a trade ship.
Either way, I can tell you that trading doesn't make as much money as a lot of combat until you at least get a Type-7. Or find a really good trade route, but the best I've found only gets me a profit of like a million in 4 round trips. If I'm slow about it.
User avatar
#72 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
i already own a type 7


and asp is flexible. with enough modding it can hold apparently about 115t cargo while still being better equipped for combat than type 7.

also combat as far as i have seen only brings about 100k if you farm for an hour..if even that.

meanwhile i make about 200k per run. and as far as i have seen. mining is the real money maker with single trips making you around 500k or so as far as i have seen it. but i couldnt get any of the mining equipment working...so
User avatar
#74 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
Oh yeah, and going from a Type-7 to an Asp is definitely not an upgrade to trading potential; you would be cutting your cargo space in half.
You sure you don't mean you're in a Type-6? That ship costs about 1 million while an Asp is about 5-6 million. A Type-7 is about 15-20 million.
User avatar
#77 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
>>#73, yeah i suppose im in type 6... im still relatively new to the game so i dont have all the ship names down..

and i actually managed to balance it out nicely with cobra. i racked up bounties of about 50k while still carrying slaves valuable goods around weighing at 100k worth in cash...which to me is actually quite nice haul.


i might shift my focus from trading to combat then...what would the best combat oriented ship be i could get for 6 mil?
User avatar
#78 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
The Vulture costs about the same as an Asp, though it's kinda hard to find a shipyard that sells it, and it costs about 16-20 million to fully A-rate it.
The Vulture is the second most maneuverable ship in the game after the Eagle, has decent stats for everything else, 4 utility hardpoints, can fit tier 5 shields while still having room for 16-32t of cargo and other internals, and it has 2 tier 3 (that's LARGE) weapons.
The thing's only downside is that like every other combat archetype ship, even the best power plant it can fit is lacking in terms of power; you cannot A-rate the ship without using power management and setting up your module priorities (cargo scoop, frame shift drive, interdictor, and some other things should be priority 5, that will give you an extra MW or so). You would also have to make some sacrifices, like the fact that I can't use a high-rated shield booster without it going over what disabling the modules I mentioned would allow, and I can only use gimballed pulse lasers; anything bigger would use too much power. Not that gimballed pulse lasers are weak or anything, they still dunk everything I look at, but still.

If you can't find (Dalton Gateway in LHS 3447 sells them, that's where I got mine), afford or don't want to invest in a Vulture yet, a Viper is probably the best second choice. Yeah it's extremely cheap and low-tier compared to a Vulture, but if my buddy can 1-on-1 an Anaconda in it, you could too with some practice. You'll even have plenty of money left over in case you suck at flying and die a lot.

That reminds me, BIG PRO-TIP: NEVER FLY A SHIP YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO LOSE.
I never go on the forums, but the one time I did, there was some guy that got pissed at and rage-quit the game because his new A-rated Asp got destroyed and he couldn't pay the insurance to replace it. Which is always a mere 5%. For my Vulture, that's like 1-2 million, which is nothing since I have 15 million in my pocket.

Once you can afford to outfit one well, get a Type-7 and just do the boring grind that is trading until you have about 60-80 million.

i actually like smuggling...


but yeah i might get vulture then... and i already knew about the rule of not driving what you cant afford( i usually make sure i have atleast 500k lying around in spares before i do anything anyway...) and i dont think im too welcome in lhs anymore..i think i might have a bounty on my head there....not entirely sure....
User avatar
#80 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
Well bounties expire after a week.
Or something, I don't know, I don't do anything that would get me a bounty.
Anyway, what's your in-game name? I'm thatperson1. I'm doing Battlefield right now, but maybe later.
User avatar
#81 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
not sure....either puolakanaho(an old nick i rarely use..only when my usual nick is taken) or angelious...i think angelious was taken so i went with my old nick...


and i have fines everywhere...about 50k in total that i wont care to pay ><
User avatar
#83 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
Well... stop getting fined then. Or get better at smuggling.
You know they stop scanning you once you enter the door of a station, right? So get in there super fucking fast and you're good. Like, line up with the door beforehand.

#84 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
they actually continue scanning you even if you enter through the force field..you need to dock in order to avoid scanning. and even then there is the federation patrols that pull you out of space and scan you.

also im heading to the lhs system you called out as having vultures.

it was about 10 jumps away from me so i thought to give it a visit and do some math...
User avatar
#85 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
Well they must have changed that then since they always used to stop once you enter.
If any military or security ships interdict you, just submit to the interdiction and immediately jump out; they don't chase you or anything and it takes them like 5 minutes to even start scanning you. If a pirate or something interdicts you, then just kill them.

I'm kinda bored of dunking shit on BF4, so I might get on in a bit.
User avatar
#86 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
they actually start scanning right away. and idk if you can jump out faster than they scan these days so its better to just try outrun them... and type 6 cant fight for shit.


also the normal patrols that stop anybody that enters the system are actually easy to outrun when they try indirect you, but when there comes patrols that are specially there just to stop YOU (basically the difference is that they immedietly announce that a suspected smuggler has entered the system and they are going to intercept him and blaa bala blaa) those things are a lot harder to out run.


anyway i bought vulture and now i just need to scrounge up 50k more cash to get the full insurance cost ready for it... then i guess ill try battlefieldings.

I just sent a friend request to Angelious.
If you want, I can give you a bunch of money in the form of commodities since there's no other way to transfer funds.
User avatar
#88 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]
yeah i guess im called puolakanaho then since i dont got no friend requests popping up...

also sorry for late reply i was afk.


and its only 50k that i need to make sure that i dont lose the beam lazers i bought for the ship... i only did a minute math on how much i was allowed to spend on the ship and i didnt look at any numbers below 100 thousands...
#89 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
Yeah but like...



Also I did some testing because I finally found some tier 3 gimballed burst lasers, and unfortunately each of those uses 10% of my power, compared to a pulse laser's 5%, and I only have a "budget" of 13%. So I can't even use a single burst laser, even if I got rid of my interdictor.
User avatar
#90 - angelious (12/05/2015) [-]

also...since puo isnt on the list try noasdsaatana.

its my oldest nick...and last of the ones i use on regular basis if the two other ones are otherwise taken...

#73 - motherfuckingkenji (12/05/2015) [-]
You shouldn't compromise between combat and trading; either go with one or the other. Either use the Type-7 or a Vulture. The Asp generally kinda sucks anyway, it's designed for exploration.

If you go to a High Intensity Conflict Zone, you can make like 2-3 million in an hour. That's how I get most of my money, I just hunt Anacondas and Pythons since they're easy targets (though I haven't really done combat since they changed how power plants work) and each is worth 72k and 56k respectively.

I've tried mining, and it's awful; it takes an hour to get 5 tons of tradeable ores.
Then again I didn't try that hard, but it was just a bad experience.
