So for those of you who don't play Elite:Dangerous yet and hear Dominion and I complain about "Accidental Bounties" this is the kinda shit we're talking about:

Source: Reddit

Also I thought a bit more about the situation with "Last-Hitting-Bounty" mechanic and I think what they have right now would be appropriate if Elite:Dangerous was a single player game like all the Elite's previous were.  Since it's not, the rules really should work differently when in respect to other players, especially if those players are in a group.  I would be happy to fly wingman with Dominion and share bounties by damage delt or even split.

There's a report of a pretty crazy server issue for Elite: Dangerous right now.  I haven't logged in today to confirm it but you might want to be careful if you.

The Friendship Drive Cult expands.

Also, I think the scare from the previous sever issues is well passed.  They are looking at things from a player to player basis, and I've had no issues.

Also, I'm going to start operating in the Liaedin local area for a bit.  It's an Imperial system in the middle of our local Federation area.  It's kinda rough to find a black market around there but I've had a lot of great luck lately with bounties lately. If you are into bounty hunting and have a jump drive that can make the trip I recommend it.

EDIT UPDATE: Olivas Station in LHS 3505 is one jump away and has a Black Market.

I'm still operating in and around Liaedin for the time being but Ren next time you're on if I'm around I'll totally head out for LHS 3447 and its nearyby stars to help out in any way I can.  If not let me know if there's any other assistance I can provide.

On a more humorous, "Oh my god keep your shields on while docking," note, about those docking computers...

EDIT: Also someone is taking pre-orders on a Friendship Drive Shirt.

More EDIT: My god the Elite:Dangerous subreddit is awesome today.  Some suggested this is how the Friendship Drive works.  If I ever do a cargo run for cargo run's sake I am totally going to play this.

DMZ and I had a fun jaunt last night.  He was doing a series of Cargo runs between Eravate and 31 Aqualae.  I was at the nearby Lieadin and caught up with him at 31 Aqualae.  There we linked up and I started flying escort for him.  I padded my own cargo a little bit, but the route was determined by his missions and cargo routes.  Along the way a few NPCs tried to interdict him.  Each time as he was moving to escape I found his ship and then locked onto the ship closest behind.  Each time DMZ broke free of the tether I locked onto the offending ship's FSD Wake, dropped in on them and ended them, picking up a bounty in the process.

This was a lark for me. DMZ's ship, an adder, represents a juicer target to potential pirates than my Viper does, and their attempts to interdict gives me the green line to drop in on them and blow them to hell.  I made more than enough money on bounties to make up for the fact that I wasn't the one carrying a ton of cargo.  It's a sweet deal and I hope to get to do more of it in the future (plus it lets me stretch my legs a bit more than I do in a typical play session).

I think I logged out in Eravate so I'm back in that neighborhood again.

I had fun, too, Adam.  I look forward to the days of the Type 9.

And I am all over that Friendship Drive shirt.  I'm so glad that's a thing.

I can't wait until helping out friends and allies becomes easier. I'd hope sometime soon you could lock on to your friend's instance when they get pulled out and jump in to give them a hand.

I also apparently need to get back to bounty hunting. The Liaedin system doesn't seem to be trader friendly. I went to it and surrounding systems and they have practically nothing in high supply. However Vergil sounds like he's making bank in the bounty hunting department there. Was hoping to get some light trading done in my new Cobra but my efforts have given me little profit here.

Dominion, in the Liaedin region you could try moving minerals from Liaedin to the Refiningl economy system (the station is Dana Platform) adjacent to GD 219 and metals from that system back to 31 Aquilae.  31 Aquilae provides agri goods which are valuable just about anywhere else in the region and its industrial stations can provide crop harvesters, mineral extractors, and computer components, which are valuable elsewhere in 31 Aquilae, Liaedin, and Dana Platform respectively.  I packed my hull full of 22 tons of various metal ingots and flew from Dana Platform to the industrial stations of 31 Aquilae and made a decent haul, especially since I scored three separate missions to bring computer components back to Dana Platform.

High supply is good but rare.  Medium supply is sufficient if you're following the economy trail: extraction>refining>industrial>high tech/agricultural>everywhere*

*but only for specific goods

 

After becoming familiarized with Parry Gripp thanks to Space Unicorn, I think we should all name our ships after one of his songs. Vergil can be Space Unicorn, I think Dominion should be Last Train to Awesometown, and Ren can be Neon Pegasus.

I will be CMDR Max Boomhammer, captain of the Burrito Van.

I'll give that a try. I did some trading on the medium supplies but profits were only one or two thousands after refueling.

I don't know what this is but it is DONE.
