-Some minor corrections, most information was accurate but for example the name of the A18 hospital was outdated

-Font/text color inconsistencies fixed

-More tips

-Various spelling mistakes fixes


The medical guide image I posted a few posts back has been updated, so I updated my earlier post with it. We now have the latest version. More details above. Same person is planning more images for salvage and more.

3.18 Salvage guide pamphlet

IHateMartians wrote:Reclaimer temporarily has 300 SCU cargo right now, 120 were added in the salvage area

It also has three turrets, one manned, and six remote turrets operated by two people (three per station)

If you create another pamphlet like this, including the different modules might be good, here are the stats for them:

Cinch: Diameter - 1.50m, Speed - 0.5, Efficiency - 0.89

Abrade: Diameter - 3.50m, Speed - 0.44, Efficiency - 0.89

Trawler: Diameter - 6.00m, Speed - 0.15, Efficiency - 0.69

Cinch is at the moment pretty useless, Trawler and Abrade are pretty similar, though I prefer using Trawler.

Vulture has Cinch and Abrade by default, Reclaimer has Abrade and Trawler by default. I haven't tested if you can switch them yet.

Is the map on the list of things to get upgraded in 3.18? As a new player is the one thing that is the most frustrating to use I don’t understand how it can be that bad when everything else is that good.

1. If you can't route to a destination, you might be too close to the planet. Try jumping to an orbital marker first. (OM1 - North pole , OM2 -South, 3,4,5,6 around the equator)

2. If you in space next to a moon and can't route to another destination. Try jumping to the moon first. I've seen this happen a lot around Cellin.

3. When zooming in on a planet, always double-click first. If you don't you won't be able to select anything on the planet or in orbit.

4. If QT markers aren't coming up you might still have a destination locked in the map. It will only show you the marker for the destination. Click clear route to fix that.


tahaan wrote:I will add to this.

5) if you are not calibrating while aiming at a marker, aim away and back at the marker. 6) if you are calibrated and spooled but still can't start jump, aim away and back and let it calibrate again. 7) if you get a jump back to the station you just departed out of as the first stop, fly up over the station, open the map, and set target . You don't need to reselect the target, just set target and it will remove the "completed" stop from the sequence. 8) while zooming in if the map disappears, zoom out and aim super carefully at the thing you want to zoom in on, then try again.

HappyFamily0131 wrote:Same problem with the MOLE vs multiple Prospectors. 3 Prospectors can search for the next big rock in 3 different directions simultaneously. 2 Prospectors can collect non-quantanium ore while 1 collects quantanium, so it can run back and drop its load before exploding while the other two keep mining. If the quant rock is too big to gather in a single Prospector run, the others can wait nearby and can act as a marker beacon so the first Prospector has no trouble finding the same rock again. If attacked, 3 Prospectors are more agile than a MOLE and can run away in 3 separate directions. If 1 Prospector is destroyed, only that ship's cargo is lost. If someone's computer crashes, only that player's ship despawns. If the owner of the MOLE's computer crashes or connection drops, while the MOLE itself should remain on the server as long as other players are on it, none of them can sell its contents.

There are just so many advantages to multi-ship activities rather than multi-crew. Multi-crew ships will need absolutely massive bonuses to offset them. I'm talking, "quantanium ore is indefinitely stable while in an undamaged MOLE," that level of bonus.


I have no doubt CIG will improve the balance of multicrew as development progresses, which is why I am putting this post here as a tip and not in the main SC thread. Also note that in 3.18 ships won't despawn anymore, they'll stay where you left them for days and even weeks, so the desync problems are gone; the MOLE owner just logs back in the server and rejoins his friends.

And on top of all the above, there are many people in the thread saying that they have friends who don't care about benefits and still play multicrew even if it's underpowered simply because it's fun. We're certainly in that group too. But when we're gunning for some credit goal and we're short on time, we have the tips above on how to maximize profits.

Kinosha wrote:3.18 PES question

To those who have been testing throughout 3.18's PTU cycle; how is the viability of the carrack and 890J affected by PES? For example, would it be possible to load either with a snub or lighter ship and use it as a base, without it despawning? I'm curious as when 3.18 kicks off I'm going to be grinding towards either an 890J or Carrack as my main aUEC goal.


ashketchum2095 wrote:Yeah it's viable to do this. Any ship you spawn stays wherever it is and you can spawn quite a few (not sure if there's a limit) without worrying about any despawning.

This isn't possible in 3.17 because once you get a certain distance away from your "base" ship it despawns.

So as long as you remember where you parked you should be good :p


Briso_ wrote:Is there a way to mark your position? Like GPS to go back to your base?


ashketchum2095 wrote:You could get a delivery box to use as a tracker.


youre_a_pretty_panda wrote:You can just keep server hopping with r_displayinfo 2 toggled on until you get back to the same server where your ship is.

Just be sure to check the server number when you start. Also, if a server 30Ks you need to wait about 30min for the old shard/server to boot up again.

I've gotten back my ships (when not inside them) 99% of the time after server crashes this way.


GuilheMGB wrote:It's viable (and you don't have the limit of 3 vehicles spawned anymore, you can spawn seemingly as many as you want). However at this stage, patches are too frequent to really understand what kind of problems will emerge when shards are kept going for weeks and weeks (something called the "shard growth rate"). So it could be that things start to become less reliable/break in shards that cumulate too many things.


More details in the thread. Mobile living is worth experimenting with now, and it'll get more and more viable over the coming months.

Guide on how to repel boarding attacks
https://www.reddit.com/r/starcitizen/co ... ng_attacks

Image

With the upcoming 3.18 and the new "soft death" mechanic, your ship can be disabled and you can be boarded. This massive guide tells you how to deal with that. It was too much work copy-pasting it in here, so I saved it on my hard drive, and if the link above gets taken down, bump this thread and I will upload it.

FluffiCatfish wrote:Racing tips for beginners

These are some tips from a sim racer that has been loving the new 3.18 racing career, yet still has a lot to improve on:

1. Start slow! Remember races are about finishing. Yes, there are always going to be people faster than you, but so what? If you went 1 sec faster around the track, you have improved yourself and your speed, and every increment will count and bring you closer to that YouTube video you saw.

2. Fly with what you have. Sure, primary racing ships fly fantastic and will do absolutely amazing, but just like in racing in reality, new drivers don’t sit down in Formula1 cars on their first track day. If you have a Aurora, Mustang, Titan it doesn’t matter, if you practice and get to know your ship, you will succeed. For instance you can get Gold with a Drake Cutlass on the Lorville Outskirts (I did it, and shooting for Platinum).

3. Time is money. If you truly are dedicated to it, keep doing the races, if you are getting 1-3 minute laps (depending on the track) and restarting the mission every time, you can make enough money after a couple hours to get you enough money to get a P-52 which a lot of people say are great for atmo flying and learning handling essentials!

4. Learn from others. With the popularity and having missions for racing, it is much more accessible and easy to hop into. Before you needed to know where you were going, now there are checkpoints. If you sit at a track for even just a bit, it is almost certain that someone else will pop up to do some laps. Chat with them, watch them race (even if they are not as good as you), race with them, all of it will improve you by learning from improvements, mistakes, or pushing each other to do better.

These are just a few tips, other racers feel free to add to this list, and I hope it helps anyone looking into racing and a new gameplay! Don’t be discouraged or scared to race, it isn’t easy, and even the official racing teams started exactly where you are at right now.


It's pretty damn cool you can make money racing now.

Some small functional changes coming with 3.18 that I’ve seen mentioned but haven’t bothered to collect references for.

-You can manipulate items on the ground from within the inventory screen now.

-Some trash cans now work. You drop stuff in it, and the stuff eventually disappears. You can help keep the server clean and running better this way.

-You can also sell used bottles at some vendors now. Not sure which ones.

-I think I heard the shuttle seats now work again in Lorville and maybe other places where they didn’t work.

Zealousideal_Sound_2 wrote:We found how to use Antares, it's awesome

My friend is the pilot and has a loadout with disto, I'm the copilot.

We go to yela or gas clouds. We search for vultures (with salvage being new, there is MANY).

Once found, I use IEM to disable the ship (with the help of disto) and the snare ability to prevent the ship to escape.

Once disabled, we ask for payment (50% of load). If he refuses, I board the ship, kill the owner and steal the ship directly. Head to ground station or Grim Hex to transfer all RMCs to a cargo ship we spawn then sell them.

So far it works really well, especially since there is no ComArray in Gas Cloud, so no CS.

We plan to try with miners, but it would probably require a 3rd guy as to know when they are leaving refinery.

Dayreach wrote:Okay, now explain what unique advantage using the Antares gave you in that scenario that a Cutlass Blue with some distortion weapons couldn't have done more efficiently? Since then you'd have an actual gun turret for your copilot to use instead of the "two button panel", an interior to change out gear in, and you could just load the RMC straight into the Blue and fly to hex without needing all those extra steps and ship switching. Hell you might even be able to hit multiple vultures before you have to fly back depending how full they were at the time. And this is all with a cheaper ship.

And what was even your plan if he did give you half his cargo? Where were you planning on putting it?


Top-Judgment8456 wrote:I took this as "we found a way to use the Antares". Is it efficient? No, it can't haul any cargo. But, if the "50% of load" is simply paid in cash then transport is no longer a problem. OP also stated if they do blow up a ship they come back with a cargo vessel, and if they need to board they just take the ship.


darksoul9669 wrote:OP is clearly also only encountering some huge dummies too; Lets be real. How do you have a solo person board you without just immediately blasting them as they come in... I never got why people keep giving this single boarding scenario with the Antares as if it's not an awful idea lol.


Vasten1 wrote:That why I carry a railgun. Stop me I say I surrender then pop out the side door then bobs you're uncle. Or I use my grenade launcher blow up the cargo and who ever is down those stairs.

Sattorin wrote:OP says they operate in areas without Comm Array coverage, so they never go red or get a crime stat.


Nilshrling wrote:its called piracy and its been in game for a very long time

improvement idea: get a fucking cutty blue and dont ask for ransom! just soft death it, kill the owner and take the 100%of the cargo, dont even need to fly back to grim

antares is not a good pirate ship


Zealousideal_Sound_2 wrote:The loot part wasn't possible before.

So far killing the ship has take more time than ransom. Due to having to load, then head to city.

Also Antares has IEM which help alot to disable bigger ships (like, a cuty or mantis ain't enough to disable a Hercules)


jonnysbtm wrote:This is why I use a reclaimer we run it with 3 people and that has enough fire power to hold its own


Zealousideal_Sound_2 wrote:We haven't found any reclaimer so far, I wonder what would happen


lordhelmos wrote:Agree with the Cutlass Blue having cargo space and doing the same job. You can also disable the target faster due to having 6s3 with the copilot turret.

But yeah I guess that would work too
