    I've been told that you can book passage on the Normandie for 30 days for 100 PED. Might be worth it...

    Say you make six round trip flights to caly per month, that comes to 11 peds per secure trip if you fly down when the Normandie is backed up to the planet's atmosphere.

    if I could get enough texture jobs per trip that fast it would be worth it but its really not. Takes me a full weekend to use half my textures usually.

    and I know forum rules that's why I don't break them heheh Or at least I try not to? Dont think I did hehehe

    Maybe my texturing only available on ark will bring more visitors >^.^<

    Sry to hear u got shot down, your texturing job you done for me was amazing, risky business in space *whistles innocently on pirate subject*, however as a friend just let me know and i will teach u the full extent of space combat if you are willing to learn with an open mind. being able to defend oneself is beneficial and space combat does go beyond just point, aim and click

    so feel free to PM me if you want, i will be back on arkadia soon, i hope lol =)

    We've had a few comments here suggesting that quads are safe for transporting stackables and that it's the technique or the "skills" of the quad pilot. This is not true. No stackables should ever be moved using a quad while pirates roam space. Use a reputable mothership that warps and can protect itself in the event it happens along a warp mine.

    It is no fun to get looted in space.... but it is a part of the game.... quads have 2 seats, must have a gunner to be of any use in a dogfight... if you travel in space your safety is determined by the time and effort you put into your flight...... if you travel alone, and in a straight line to your destination, and dont watch the "corners", its only a matter of time..... there are pilots and security teams that will escort for a price..... MS's are not foolproof, and can be taken out fast with the right attack. and like i always say "since there is no book to this game, and the rules change constantly, ask 10 people and choose your best option"..... as far as not naming pirates.... piss off, name anyone, its ok..... its a profession allowed by MA.... just like like any other... space travel cannot be 100% safe, it keeps the travel econ rolling

    p.s. Does a miner in pvp 4 on Caly complain of pirates?

    Does the miner in PVP4 HAVE to go through PVP4 to get to Akmuul or another TP?

    It is a standalone pvp area that has/had high MU materials in, and is not somewhere that has to be travelled through to get somewhere else.

    Bit of a difference in my opinion.

    All the damn time :p

    The whole purpose of lootable pvp in space is to give some insulation between economies. Your best bet would be to leave caly textures on caly and ark textures on ark. That way you can just point the ship in a direction and let it go.

    If you want to make a profit off of the differences in the planet economies you have to take on some more risk or pay for services.

    I can confirm though that there are ways to make the trip in a quad almost 100% safe. ;)

    I agree. Key word is "almost".

    It might very well be an allowed profession by MA, but as we have recently seen once again, the naming of people tends to polarise the forum community a fair bit. That's why its against the rules to "Name and Shame" people on this, and other, forums. If people insist in doing so they will also have to deal with the consequences...

    Hi,

    I think MA walks a very dangerous line with this space thingie. In my humble opinion they open themselves to quite some legal risks, including aiding, promoting and/ or supporting criminal behavior like thievery, robbery and money laundering.

    I've posted about it on EF already (klick me!) about it, a few interesting replys. Posted one more today, for the lazy, klick here. Be aware that this could be deleted. I carry a copy :)

    Have a good time!

    naturally... mindark legalized theft, protect the thieves and now heavily promote it by making space alot bigger so it takes forever to get anywhere so you'll be a target for a much longer time...

    way to go mindark... way to make people quit... ><

    ok sorry about the whining, i just had to get it out of my system :)
    i have personally never been looted before, but mindarks view on thieving is making me angry....

    sorry to hear about the pirate kitten :(

    Bigger space doesnt make you more vulnerable. Almost all the risk is when u depart a planet, especially caly.

    So let's have a rule against naming traders shall we? After all, trading is something that people get hot under the collar about, and we've all heard traders being called nasty names. Oh, and a rule against naming mentors, cos some of them are disciple-farming scum, and...oh yeah, we definitely need a rule against naming forum mods :D
