    New update 3.3.03 is available.

    Bet it won't fix any of the bugs I reported.

    See if the more eagle-eyed can spot the slight error in this one:

    Yup. Turns out that's only the start of the fuckups.

    Our squadron was convinced we were being undermined by another player faction. It almost came to war. Then we realised that Inf across the entire Bubble was going haywire. Turns out that in the latest upgrade FDev had fucked everything up so each time you thought you were doing something positive you were actually hurting your faction.

    Wanksplats! :evil:

    I've had very little time to play recently because of work but I've put a few hours in this weekend.

    How are you finding the 'improvements' to scanning, mining and squadrons?

    err, to be honest I've mainly gone back to basics :oops::lol: I even managed to stack my ship doing a planetary landing ffs. Costly mistake, 1.7m worth of costly mistake. I actually don't know about the squadrons. Whats that about?

    For a mere 10M credits you can form your own in-game Minor Playing Faction and create a squadron which people can join up to.

    Pop into one of our controlled systems and say hello sometime.

    Cool. If I come bounding in in my Krait Phantom with no hardpoints and crap shields, am I gonna get my pants pulled down :lol:

    I am saving up for improvements. I just found a nice little route which is netting me 800k credits per journey for some polymers

    You'll be safe. We don't encourage violence even though we're an anarchist outfit. We grew out of the Secret Billionaires group. We don't even get out of bed for 800k. :cool:

    Aaaaaaand........ they've nerfed it! :evil:

    Now you can cruise around for an hour and maybe find one ship carrying LTDs.

    And when you interdict it it now runs away at full throttle. Even shooting at it just causes it to get about 5km away before it turns around and starts a straffing run. Repeat and repeat.

    Best I've managed so far is 10t of LTD. Its just not worth it anymore.

    Bastards! :evil:

    Auto Launch: wait for ages for all the ships in the station to clear whilst your ship bobs up and down and side to side. Then when it does start to move out it clips the station and you get a fine.

    Auto Supercruise: Target a ground station and it helpfully drops you out of Supercruise and puts you into orbit around the planet...... then fights you all the way down as it just orbits with no sense of direction to the settlement. The moment you put the throttle back into the blue it tries to take control.

    Its all shit!
