... so this feedback is from a perspective of complete ignorance about what investing in the system actually does.
Your dosh goes straight into the coffers of whichever crime family is running that particular system.
Otherwise, things tend to go missing, spaceships get broken - if you get my drift.

The fourth octant is a bit strange, the fifth is excellent, the seventh is the best.

So far I've played without OXPs. I want to get a good amount of game experience with just the vanilla game, but I definitely plan on trying a bunch out.
That's a good way to start - then begin adding eye-candy/ambience stuff. I always recommend [EliteWiki] Random Ship Names.

Re: Aliens!

How do you communicate with a planet-sized slime with ESP that eats electricity?
Sounds like Lem's novel Solaris.

It's worse at the witchpoint if you get attacked by some assassins while police are watching...
Cops are reluctant to engage assassins, as their Vipers aren't tough enough.
It's easier to take the player down, then head for coffee and doughnuts!

One possibility is ships that have a "pirate-aegis-raider" role - they might attack the player in the aegis without provocation.
Aegis Raiders will do that, though whether solely by design, I can't be sure, as I'd seen Oolite do it before they were a thing.
