Yeah f*ck that. I would prefer to just purchase the Orca instead and G5 engineer its FSD. Should keep me entertained for a good while in terms of passenger missions.
Right now all I care for is having a medium sized ship that can do well in each category (combat, trading and exploring)
- Asp Explorer (Rare trading, trading and combat mix-up - perfect for any kind of CG and for material/data gathering) - Build as a combat trader in mind
- Vulture (Combat-only)
- Diamondback Explorer (Exploration-only)
As to why, a Medium sized ship will allow me to dock at any station (including outposts), so no restrictions. Especially when bounty hunting, where an Outpost is the closest thing I can find to a High RES point.
The notable exception to this will be the Orca, as it needs a Large landing pad (then again, the best passenger missions are not exactly found on outposts).
I have already G5 engineered the FSD of my Diamondback Explorer, so technically I can do some exploration again. However, I want to engineer my Asp Explorer a bit further first (get G5 Overcharged with AutoLoader on my largest multicannon, the two smaller ones already have Efficient mod with Corrosive and Incendiary effect, plus engineer the lasers as well, and the trusters)
Once that’s done, go unlock some engineers and see if I can engineer my Diamondback even further. Then go out of the bubble for a bit.
