Damn, dude Very impressive on all points.
I have done very little by comparison. Also I could not be bothered to plan my engi mats ahead of time, and I’m not sure if the engineering discount special really helped me. All along, I’d been patiently gathering up, here and there, mats that had given me a problem in the past. This weekend, I visited engineers who wanted mats I’d never given a thought to before. Yes, I could have traded down at a materials trader, and I did, as needed. But I didn’t mass trade any materials, because then I’d be on the hook to do all my engineering before the special is over, after which I’d be left with a truckload of useless mats.
However, I have been playing pretty consistently. I’ve A-rated my Clipper, and done the most important bits of engineering, with the notable exception of shields. I’ve flown it a bit more in the freighter role I’ve given it, gotten comfortable enough I’m keeping it, and named it Moments of Transition. Used it to get to the 50th percentile in the trading/smuggling CG (I refuse to trade in Narcotics or Tobacco, but I will smuggle Beer, which is illegal in that system. I carry a full hold of legal Coffee when enough is available.)
What is the meaning of your killer Corvette’s name?
What do you do specifically with a bunker buster? I get that it’s about planetary assault, but which mission types? I’m sure I’ve never done one.
I remembered there is this thing called Google, and now I think this is either a nod to Old Irish mythology, or (much more likely) a Dark Souls reference.
Edit 2: I had wanted to name the Clipper Enlightened Self-Interest, but it was too long and wasn’t allowed.
