    Best piece of advice I can give: In 2.6.3 Hold F to get off the toilet in the Connie Taurus, don't tap it.

    I will help out. One of the things I hate about the PTU is people think it's an opportunity to do whatever for "testing". Thing is, if they just ASKED, I am sure they would get tons of volunteers, instead of harassing people who are working on testing other specific bugs. You want to kill me for testing, I'm ok with that. Just tell me when and where. If I am not busy testing another bug, I will be happy to help out.

    I know how many Auroras it takes to kill a Starfarer. just one. you hit it right in the kisser, it will take the nose of the ship right off.

    Nice! At max speed I assume? I wanna test out/make a diagram/video of all the larger ships for where to ram and how much speed you need.

    I have this picture of a Reclaimer sitting above Olisar munching ships as they get spawned onto the pads... I’m betting that the thing would absorb a lot of shots from security forces before it popped like a scrap piñata ..... it’s raining scrap....

    Nice setup, huh?

    My wife would agree. With both definitions I'd say.

    OK! I have some science to report, and it's a bit troubling! Concerning our primary war-machine the Aurora, the thrusters are not very strong, especially the ones located in the nose. I started my decel into Levski at 15K. It became quite apparent to me this was not going to work out well at about 8K to Levski. I flipped 180 to use my main engines to decel and still slammed into Levski at around 500m/s. So be aware, Auroras moving at max AB speed of over 1100m/s take a long time to slow down.
