dirty drives are so dumb on the iEagle. lol. you have to set the ship permanently to 1/3 speed to stay on anyone's tail. You're in a Lambo; everyone else is in a Mini Cooper by comparison.

There's so little discussion about this, I can't seem to find a forum anywhere mention it :(

Does it work outside the game?

Tried it with Arma and some other games, no dice. Obviously, there's an issue where anything nongaming isn't 3D so.

Anyway, I'm not going to keep it. It actually made me pretty Nauseous like I've experienced in the past with poor VR.

The eye tracking in conjunction with the head tracking just doesn't work on a static screen together. A big issue is looking at UI elements or glancing causes the camera to move, now I was able to compensate with some sliders to try to stop that from happening. But the delay between looking around the corners of the screen, and the camera moving is enough to cause eye strain and nausea at least for me.

It was worth a restocking fee to try it out though. Assuming they do charge me one. I'm more convinced than ever that eye tracking is key to VR's future. But I don't truly see a way forward in gaming for it without VR.

The closest I've seen to that problem is TrackIR's settings, that manage to completely hijack the buttons used to control it, and no other program can use those buttons as long as TrackIR is running. Sounds like something similar may be happening there.

Anybody else notice the title of the email? "Newsletter Template"... oops.. lol.

Those Coriolis bobbleheads are actually pretty cool.. I might pick up the wireframe one.

Finding these chemical manipulators is awful. I would have happily gone for upgrading my jump range a bit and continuing to grind for cash a bit longer but this has bored me to death. Sitting in SC for an hour at a time hoping to find a USS, then hoping it's combat aftermath, then hoping the chemical manipulators will show up is way too many layers of luck applied to the most boring aspect of the game. Both my last sessions of this game have been an hour of SC with not a single combat aftermath showing up and it's drained any enthusiasm.

Define game. The game is what you call tedium. Put two coats on.

You're doing it wrong, unfortunately. I too made this mistake.

The efficient way to do this is to go to an Outbreak system and shoot T7's at the convoy meet ups.

I was being facetious, of course the grind is the game.

Outbreak system? Never heard of those or convoy meet ups. How do I locate these on the map? I'm sick to death of searching for USS now.

Sort on the galaxy map by State. Tick the outbreak box.

Thanks, I'll give that a go. By the way what would people suggest as weapon outfitting for a Python? I'm using 2 Large pulse lasers + two medium Pulses with a Large Multi cannon and I'm not sure it's a good choice. I found a type 9 in SC and went for the ambush and found he put up a pretty good fight surprisingly. With his ship launched fighter and missiles he was packing pretty heavy damage.

I keep hearing about the ability to buy modular terminals somewhere, is there any truth to that?

I'm assuming no. Anyone remember which economy and state tend to spawn them more as rewards?

Bounty hunting at RE sites is where the easy money is to start with.

Plus they have the advantage of being in planet rings so they look pretty decent too.

I went out to the Formidine Rift to help search for the settlements there. I was searching the Delta site planet when my kid came in and was talking to me and I crashed my ship...

Waaaayyyyyy back to Meene. I had spotted a few water worlds on the way too.

I played like 16 hours of the game so far and I wish I could get more into it. I love the way the game plays, I love the way it looks but...it's one of those games that is way too big for me to enjoy. I'd rather have 50 distinct systems than 400 billion randomly generated.
Then again I do not care about multiplayer a bit and that maybe wouldn't work that well with "only" 50 systems.

Still enjoy the game but I can't see myself playing it for much longer.

I honestly feel like they started blurring together after, like 10 systems. I still think the game is super cool. Maybe one day I'll get my Freelancer 2. I've really been chasing that high ever since.
