A solo warp from Rocktropia to Calypso Space Station.

Space Skilling Saturday 270 (At Rocktropia III) THE LAST?

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1904 MA.
Present:- Alice, Nocturaline, Ntina, Wolta and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads Aches & Pains

I arrive and prepare, we have a new recruit this week, Alice Pandora Eole, Phil is unable to make it this week. Once Wolta arrives we depart with her at the helm.

Wolta’s hour:- After 20 minutes Ntina arrives. We score a 123 PED global on a Cosmic Horror Young during the first session in the turret. I asked if anyone wanted to include Monria this circuit, no one said anything so we will go to Calypso. Loot was pretty good, Wolta has nothing to report.
Kills: 8 + 8

Cee’s hour:- Density was good, loot seemed reasonable but skills were very poor. I did nothing but struggle, this is by far the worst interface I’ve seen in any game, I could not return to the forward view after using the look feature except by chance, the whole thing just crashed at one point and I had to wait to login, it is not possible to type while turning. It took so long to maneuver the ship into a position that would let me use a turret that the ship was almost destroyed by the time I got there and I had to wait for repair before going into the turret. This is either designed by a complete incompetent or a way for MA to get a little more money from us, probably both. I have decided and announced to the crew that “THIS IS THE LAST SSS“, if they make the interface usable I will review that. I do this for fun and I am having none so fuck it. I finished after only 40 minutes, I just want this to be over.
Kills: 22

Nocturaline’s hour:- Loot seemed to drop off a bit. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.62% in Captain skill using pills, half way to level 38.
Kills: 16 + 14 + 11

Nocturaline takes us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 79
Balance – Gain of 100 PED
Return – 142%

Next week and for as far ahead as I can currently see there will not be an SSS.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have participated in SSS over the past 5 years, especially Nocturaline, Phil and Wolta who have been the core crew during this time, I apologize to you all for this decision and am saddened by it myself, almost every Saturday night for five years is quite a commitment and to lose this is painful. Hopefully something will be done to improve this complete fuck of an upgrade but somehow I doubt it.

Space Skilling Saturday 269 Cancelled

I was not available to run this session as I was at Nephew George’s Birthday party.

Space Skilling Saturday 268 (At Rocktropia II)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space Station.
Time:- 1900 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil and Myself
Team name:- Sleepyheads update woes

I arrive and prepare, Nocturaline summons me and we transfer to the ship. Wolta informed us that she may not make it we wait until 1900 then leave.

Cee’s hour:- Loot seemed OK as did skills, density was a bit low. Interface and view is still seriously fucking shit, how could anyone have thought this a good idea? Had to stand during the second session. When I left the guns after the last session I got stuck, normally I would enter and exit a seat but I could not see one. T put me outside the ship on top near the front I walked to the starboard side of the pilot seat and fell through to the stairs.
Kills 13 + (9 + 6) + 6

Nocturaline’s hour:- I needed guidance to find two horrors at the end of the first session. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1. 3% in Captain.
Kills: 14 + 12 + 9

Nocturaline takes us to the space station.

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 69 Dude!
Balance – Loss of 19 PED
Return – 91%

Next week we will be in the Rocktropia system.
