Yes, and all the commanders from the dawn of Elite are readying their ships, all filled with A class engineered weaponry, while I grind through peanuts. Damn. Damn damn.

Not to mention that a certain  100 million mission appeared! I immediately changed my ship to my exploration Cobra III and went for it. Now I have 4 weeks to finish it. I hope there is a walk-through out before that. :D

That mission is pretty much a decoy for now... So what... Took a shot of the alien site though. Last days of my Cobra mk. III.

Got meself an Asp Explorer, more fuel, longer jump range, far more available space. As its role is exactly the same as Cobra's, the latter was sold.

Does this star have any coronary diseases?

A HUGE landable planet, 22,4 Earth masses. Landing here is definitely not something I'd try while on a well paid mission.

Driving tourists leads you to some really nice sites. Geysers are rare and hard to find - unless someone places a tourist beacon right next to them.

Posted Image

FD even went as far as making some "fumaroles" active and others not.

Just for the viewing pleasure.

Absolutely lovely vistas out there, SV.

Just take care not to burn up your spiffy new ship trying to take a pretty snapshot too close... ;)

And I will, sooner or later, he he he! Man, people are next to zealous in Elite, I tell ya. I went to the ruins, discovered that only "brute-force" discoveries are possible, meaning that one needs to try out every damn combination of one or two items at the site. I went away, knowing that others will do it - or it is not worth doing in the first place. The time spent there would be just intolerable. People flying over planets to visually scan them... Planets are pretty freaking big in Elite and it is very easy to miss features. If I was not given the coordinates I wouldn't find these ruins in the four weeks allocated to the mission... But there they are, flying over them and checking the surface.

People are taking this game a bit too seriously. Seriously. :D
