    On the other hand we could of course make sure that most pirates do not touch ships running the imperium flag by putting harsh penalties on pirating one of our vessels : - instant contract on any pirate dumb enough to mess with us: You mess with us and we will make sure it is not worth it. We will find you and we will kill you. We make it personal each and every time. - maybe a special imperium branch that is set up for "punishing" pirates that mess with our ships: they hunt down the pirates and recycle their ships Regular pirates will not mess with us if they understand that the might of the imperium fleet will come down on their heads if they harm our ships. You always have the ones that will attack us just to mess with us but at least we discourage a large amount of players and hopefully they will attack a ship that is from a smaller org that does not unleash the dogs war on them

    I think you are right about point 4. It is much smarter to patrol a smaller area. Where we have trade routes or mining operations. It take a little time but most smart pirates will learn not to attack any Imperium ship close to one of them areas, even if that ship is not in the area we are defending. As we could send overwhelming force to deal with them fast. As for your first point, I do think attacking pirates could have things to offset the cost. For one bounty's, we scan and find out who on the ship and we claim the bounty's on them. You get more money if they are live, but some will still pay even if they die, just not as much. Every little helps. You also have the ships they was flying. You might not be able to keep their ship. But i don't think it be anything stopping other people from the Org coming with their reclaimer and striping it for every UEC they can get out of it. But at some point, might be at a start of moving in to a area or when they get overzealous. You might have to go and show them the Org can use overwhelming force if need to guard it assets in a given area. But that also might be going into the next system where they are coming from. A stay out of my area or i come to your area type thing. You don't always have to use overwhelming force, but you need them to know it there if needed and you will use it. And that a big offset to cost you have. As for your sixth point. You are right but. I think you have pirates fighting each other over the right to a area. Or just attacking them because they have something they want. Or just griefing each other.

    Welcome! See you in the space!
  10. Destroyer, Javelin-class

    Well, I hope they used protection. The last thing we need are hundreds of Javerheads flying around!
  11. Destroyer, Javelin-class

    I also liked seeing the Hammerhead on top of the Javelin. I think they make a very nice pair style-wise.

    @MadWolfie The Thrustmaster T16000M HOTAS is a great budget setup. I use one of the joysticks as my left hand controller with the Warthog flight stick (also Thrustmaster) in my right. Thrustmaster has a few tiers of gear, with the T16K being their entry-level tier and the Warthog HOTAS being the top-of-the-line. I'm approaching this game as an enthusiast so I'm dropping a bit more on gear for it than most people will. Warthog flight stick on its own is around $260 and the HOTAS is about $350-400. I got the HOTAS because I got a nice discount for working at Microcenter. The throttle panel has so many switches, it makes turning on my ships so much fun :). Anyhoo just my two cents. +1 for buying at Microcenter as well. (slightly biased). The T16k flight stick is about $45 on Amazon and it's reversible - it comes with a left-handed grip and swapping them out is very simple. For 6DOF flight a joystick is better than a throttle in your left hand IMO, and one as versatile as the T16K does it remarkably well. Only downside to the Warthog stick that I've come across is the lack of a twist axis (being able to turn the joystick like a motorbike throttle) but otherwise it's worth every penny to me.

    That is not a bad deal in this case! Good thinking. If you want a second stick the thrust master 1600 is decent. Its plastic, but I ended up going through the x52, the warthog, various keypad setups and settling with it for a left hand set up. @Donut I have been drooling over the vkb stuff too. They make left handed sticks too, but I cant find them tonight.

    encore disponible la veste tactique ?
  20. Ongoing Discussion Saitek x55 and x56

    Thanks. I pickup another x52 pro at micro center. Pay for the extended warranty ($39) 3 years. I know it going to break down sooner then the warranty. So it like a $39 rental till a good hotas come out. It was just seem add that no locals store carry the x56, so I could (rent) it
  21. Wingman and your ships

    escort was also a thing they talked about years ago, with a limit of 2 or mayby max 4 but never been furter then yust talking about it, no promises where made afaik
  22. Wingman and your ships

    What I cannot understand cleary is if I shall hire an NPC escort + ships (so the ship is "included" in the NPC when I hire him) OR I can use one of my alt AI chars (linked to the account) and - besides using them to crew my ship (that was confrimed) - also put them in one (let's say) Gladius that I own and use it as an IA escort for the ship I'm flying.
  23. Wingman and your ships

    We can still hire escorts to fly our ships, or use our own NPC's but still have to pay them as employee's under contract. I don't think that will ever change. Keep in mind this: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/spectrum/community/SC/forum/3/thread/npc-crew-2 Also Chris specifically said he wants players to be able to hire escorts.

    Saitek products have a lot of quality control issues, one of the reasons they went under in the first place. Now that they're back and being owned by Logitech, I would assume they're all getting rid of the old products so they can do a complete re-branding of their name and push out new, better products. I would hold off unless you really need a HOTAS. Personally I'm waiting for VKB to come out with their Space Sim product line, and we also have the Star Citizen product line coming from Mad Catz which just came back and are also re-branding themselves. Lot's of things coming but you'll have to be patient. VKB You can still find the x55 and x56 on Amazon if you really wanted them though. But imo would not be a wise decision. https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00HHAIY72/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all https://www.amazon.com/Saitek-Flight-Controller-SCB432210002-01/dp/B01CZTSS3O
