Ok, so this dedicated thread was not abused as it was supposed to be. Still, I have to say the game is visually stunning. I was dropped at some godforsaken outpost with no missions available. I went through basic learning missions so I know the absolute basics. The basic-most of the basics is that the original ship is always available to me and I can crash as many times as I want. I haven't crashed yet though. I was jumping around a bit and it looked I might be left without fuel. I read that I need to commit self-destruct to be "reborn". Unless someone saves me as article Thor posted
writes about. Forget about that for a n00b.
Anyway, just when I thought I was done for, using my last possible jump, I finally arrived at a system with any kind of station. A huge one, really a sight to see. I called Nadja to show her the station in all its majesty. I mean, an obviously coolest sight one can get, screw mountains.
She looks at the screen and goes... "Yeah, ok, what?" "Erm, a space station!" "Yeah, ok, SO WHAT?" "Nothing, dear, sorry. Go back to the television."
So there I am now, docked and waiting for at least an hour of free time to figure out what to do next. I have checked and there are missions available and I have a little starting dough minus the fine for firing in close proximity to the station. A good start.
