I jumped on for a brief second last night but had to go and do something else. Having bought it I think I should give it a proper go. It was somewhat boring for me not knowing what to do other than carry small amounts of fertiliser or such back and forth.

I also got this for voice attack. Voice attack is pretty cool, I use it in a few things. http://www.elitedangerousvoicepack.com

It's got over 1000 replies as well has hundreds of known phrases. I am not so short on buttons with my warthog but sometimes it's just easier to say what you want like 'balance power'

Now off to find a profile for the hog.

I play in open almost exclusively. Probably 95% of players ignore me or are friendly, but as I'm in a combat ship that stat is probably skewed a bit :D

There are PvP focused people out there but most CMDRs I interact with it's friendly.

I'm CMDR Allfree if you want a wingman sometime.

I'm Cmdr X20.

I've mostly been playing in a private group due to some griefing a while back but will likely venture back into Open.

I am CMDR CMDR Beeps..(Yes, I know, I am THAT guy).

I have been playing about in the Open universe and doing OK so far.

Mining is a bit of a grind, but it is good coin. I have probably been able to buy a Cobra with extra goodies, but I have one seriously upgraded Sidey instead. :)

ED is quite addictive.

Great set of links there Beep, answered a few questions I've had for a long time.

In other news, just collected my 5M payment from last community goal (Stop the Sobek Boys) - so it's time to go shopping for that Vulture I've long wanted! Anyone else flying one?

I've flown one in previous community goals. It's an amazing killing machine and great for taking down the bigger targets.

You'll love it.

WOW - I see what you mean. 2 x Class 3 lasers and I can boil up the bigger ships in no time. Can't believe I used to peck away in my little Eagle!
