I enjoyed gadding about for a while in a markI then a Mark II and then the MarkIII. If you don't mind the lack of missiles (and therefore fuel tanks and other usefull stuff) the zippyness makes these ships fun. Then I "upgraded" to the Mark IV which was a mistake: Still no missiles plus the darned t...

I'd love to reskin these ships properly, but with no guidelines on the texture .pngs I've little to go on! I managed ok with the wonderful B-Wing but with the rest it's impossible to tell what goes where except by trial and error. Has anyone got the maps?

Talking of catching Thargoids, I finally bagged me an invader with a salvage missile!! I noticed that if you meet a Thargoid carrier and destroy it with a Quirium mine it will spit out some invaders before it explodes, but presumably the crew are dead as the ships are dormant and just tumble along t...

Bulk haulers certainly do spurt out a whole shower of escape pods when they've been shot up. My nasty pirate Commander Cack (flying a Griff Boa) loves to attack BH's until they call abandon ship, "rescue" as many pods as possible and take then to a station for the insurance money. I know, despicable...

If OXP ships are to your taste my most successfull Commander to date flies a Dragon M http://wiki.alioth.net/index.php/Dragon with lots of lovely turrets!! It's fast and deadly with a reasonable cargo hold. If you aren't keen on the paint job you can use this one instead http://img.photobucket.com/a...

Encountered my first nest in witchspace the other day, but they were mostly fighting the thargoids so I thought best not annoy them. Along with the Thargoids and the Navy witchspace was very busy that time!When I'd had enough of a pounding (and I was only in an Eagle mark II) I was able to hitch a l...

Talking of stations in interstellar space, the new wasp stations definately do spawn there I found out last night. On this occasion they mostly seemed to be fighting the Thargoids and I was able to hitch a ride on the station back to normal space.

I'd like to see a mission screen maybe with a variety of choices and outcomes (like you get at the seedy space bar etc.) Maybe you escape with alien items or stolen technology, maybe you get away with your skin and a stolen (crappy) ship or maybe they subject you to horrendously fatal medical experi...

BAH! Don't let your Captured Thargons loose when attacking your mark!!!! If they accidentally kill the blighter before you the kill gets credited to "Another Bounty Hunter" and you don't get the pay either. Damn their eyes!

I can report that I have sucessfully (and easily) docked with the bigger version of the hermit in both an Anaconda and even a Kirin XM. Not using a Caddy at the moment, but I guess that'd be the real acid test!!!

The gas giant textures seem to be mapping strangely onto the planets with the bands of clouds forming hexagons intead of rings.

You can't disable the players ship in the sense you mean. Also there are always frames of reference, such as planets, suns, other ships and indeed space dust...
