Warp transport Rocktropia to Crystal Palace.

April 15th 2017: I was in need of a logged off transport to Crystal Palace, every once in a while I have to visit the home system to resupply. I took all I needed and went aboard ship from where I contacted Lizzy before logging off.

April 16th 2017: Lizzy reports the warp transport is complete and that we are docked at Crystal Palace, the journey was without incident.

Space Skilling Saturday 169 (Internet routing issues, probably)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space.
Time:- 1845 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads Internet routing!!!!

I arrived late as I could not connect to EU or any mindark site although I could connect to every other site I tried. Several e-mails were sent between Wolta, Nocturaline and myself. After over an hour of trying it started to work, I suspect some internet routing issues although both my ISP and my 4G provider had the same problem and there were UK based accounts on-line. The result of this was that we began about 45 minutes late. I said I would forego my pilot session as both Wolta and Nocturaline waited patiently for me to arrive however things transpired somewhat differently.

Wolta’s hour:- turns out it’s just half an hour and with only 5 horrors, Wolta was too tired to continue.

Nocturaline insisted I take a stint as pilot so I split the remaining time between us giving us 40 minutes each.

My 40 minutes:- I kill 26 Horrors and get next to nothing in return.

Nocturaline’s 40 minutes:- There are 31 kills that included a 10 and a 7 PED ¬†loot. Nocturaline reports there are plenty of Horrors. After the 40 minutes she takes us back to Rocktropia Space Station where the crew disembark.

A loss of 92 PED and a return of 51%.

Space Skilling Saturday 168 (RK20 shortage)

Start Location:- Rocktropia Space.
Time:- 1757 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads what a good idea!

I arrived in good time and positioned the ship, Nocturaline offered me a summons but I was already aboard.

We set out a little before scheduled with Wolta at the helm.

Wolta’s hour, initially there was a problem finding Horrors as indicated by Wolta’s comment “Ah, a mob”. 29 Kills.

My hour, Operation failed due to an internal error after having to stand, Wolta reports many fails on repair. Kills 41 with one a 25 PED loot. Skills seemed low too.

Nocturaline’s hour, I also experience many fails while repairing. Kills 37 for nothing but lag! Even the Horrors became scarce.

There were conversations about the rarity of RK-20s and RK20 BPs.

A loss of 151 PED and a return of just 53%.
