    Oh man Gunnery has about as much in it as spaceship command. Every bit of it as yummy too. Kerovan, which gun are you working towards?

    Yep. You can find me as

    TS Rico, lol.

    As far as actually playing...well, I wouldn't go that far. I don't have much actual play time (too busy playing UO) but I do take the time to train my character, lol. my account is nearly two years old, but I only have just shy of 9 million training points...la

    Welp, I'm going to start studying so I can get a ore mining ship. Since I really don't play much, I might as well make a little cash in the small bursts of time I am going to be on line. Was thinking about getting targeting up to lvl 3, but thought making some money wouldn't be a good thing seeing that the higher level skills are soooooo, expensive, not to mention the better ships and gear.

    To be honest I have yet to spend more than 2 hours in game in a given week over the past 2 years, lol...la

    Salvaging is cool. As long as you aren't being an A-hole and scanning down mission runners to salvage their missions before they are even done.



    PS: Navigation V done, few days left till Warp Drive Op V and then Jump Drive Op I! Yay Capital ships I'll NEVER be able to afford!

    Scout drone 5 at the moment so I can use tier 2 Light and Mediums. Gonna raise the rest of my relavant drone skills from lvl 3 to 4, then I dunno. Probably work towards a specific ship I cant fly yet like a force recon.

    I haven't used drones yet, but have the skills trained. Spent a bunch of the cash I made salvaging on new skill training. Started working some of the social skills this weekend so I can get better missions.

    Salvaging for the win. I run missions and then salvage the rat ships I kill. LOL, I make more isk in the salvaging then I do from the actual mission...la

    Drones are handy for the higher level missions to deal with frigates that can avoid big missles and guns.

    Ive got about 3/4 of my combat related skills to lvl 4 or 5. I got a Caldari Raven, solo lvl 4 missions, then come back with my Industrial and loot/salvage it before I turn it in. I get Caldari LP and their faction items are nice all around for a missle user/shield tanker. Ive nearly got my Navy Raven put together, once its done I'll be looting with it and Ill give up on salvaging with the Industrial for a while. The lvl 4 missions youre getting upwards of a mil bounty for every battleship so it pays better to get through the missions as quick as possible. Ill still have a tractor for easy looting. Once that ship is done, Ill probably start buying +5 implants. The big level 4's you can make 60+ mil on them with full looting/salvaging and a handful of social skills.

    Belmarduk Guest

    With lvl 4 mission you can make good money
    Bounty,loot and salvage together can be 30+ mio isk with certain missions.

    About drones: Tech2 drones are worth it - Believe a Dominix Pilot who uses T2 sentrys/Heavys/Hammerheads T2 ;)

    I used to fly with a cnr but to try something different I tried a T2 fitted Domi with T2 drones - Now I must say I prefer it to the cnr :)

    Rico you still not got your mining barge?? Goto your wallet - set filter "Player Donations" ;) everylittle helps ..la

    LOL, I changed my mind again. I have the skills for the barge...but salvaging and can looting is more fun. Someone yelled "Guards" at me last night and dammit, if they didn't come and get me, lol. I think I need to read up on this game's mechanics, lol....la

    Haha thats awesome TSR! Don't take someone's loot unless they are not there or you can get away a bit faster. Don't be afraid to dock in station until the aggression timer is done.

    12 days till advance spaceship command V is finished!

    It was that flashing red tag that alerted the coppers. It was funny. I was going from asteroid field to asteroid field and I noticed some jagoff had alerted the local channel on my...and then he crossed the line. He used a cuss word *was shocked*. So I went to the field he was mining in...found one of his cans...opened it to see all sorts of ore loots. Too much for me to steal...so I figured I would kill the can...******* police podded me :). It was fun to watch the guys reation though. I think he spent the next 20 minutes coming up with some creative names for me, lol...la

    haha! Did you actually kill the can? Thats hilarious! It would be been better if you stole a little bit of the ore and hoped he shot at you so you could kill him.

    LOL I'm just doing Capital ships because I can. I'm pretty well rounded in most respects and figure heck one day I may be offered to pilot a Capital for a corp and should be ready. I am trying to raise the 1.5-1.7 billion for my Moros but I don't think it will happen at the rate I fall asleep and get killed in L4 missions :sleep2:

    You can dock Dreadnoughts, Carriers, and Rorquals. Motherships and Titans are undockable.

    Currently I'm training Navigation lvl 2, I played about a year ago, quit and promptly forgot my account details.
    So starting a new account out of pure boredom today, using the trial and may keep playing again after that.

    Welcome back Stumpy. Hope you stick around this time!

    I'm about ready to start Advance Weapon Upgrades V after I finish Large Hybrid V in about 3 days.

    Yeah I am considering it, will get to the end of my trial and make a decision. I aim to try alot more things than last time and to more than likely get into PvP if I stay around. Last time I played I had no real idea on any of the electronics side of it but I have experimented with it a bit and find it rather cool.

    Oh well if anyone sees fit to contact an old UOer I'm going by the name Beaverhousen so I suppose I may see you out there in space.
