Space Skilling Saturday 226 (At Calypso II)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1748 MA.
Present:- Nocturaline, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads, what royal wedding??

I leave Next Island at about 1635 in my Quad and head to the ship which is docked at Calypso Space Station. The journey takes about an hour. I arrive in good time, set up this blog and Summon the crew.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds via Crystal Palace we encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1759.

Wolta’s hour:- We were kept busy in Engineering, Wolta reports good mob density and a gain of 2.25% on captain. She was also hungry and had to dash to the galley as soon as she left the chair to make a sandwich which was unfortunately too small.
Kills: 16 + 14

Cee’s hour:- Good mob density, I had to stand and manoeuvre during the first session at the guns as the crew were too busy eating cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off! The second group were easy to collect but the ship was quite close to destruction when in the turret. Quite a lot of skill gain messages but loot was low.
Kills: (11 + 13) + 27

Nocturaline’s hour:- A friendly quad was close during the first session at the guns. There were some good loots during this session. Nocturaline reports a gain of 1.85% in captain skill using 50% skill pills.
Kills: 24 + 19

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 124
Balance – Loss of 1.18 PED
Return – 99.67%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will remain at Calypso (Though we were quite close to moving on).

Space Skilling Saturday 225 (At Calypso I)

Start Location:- Calypso Space Station.
Time:- 1756 MA.
Present:- Casper, Nocturaline, Ntina, Phil, Wolta and Myself.
Team name:- Sleepyheads jus passin through?

I arrive with a whole hour to spare, I am already aboard ship so began this log entry and made ready ammo and loot pills, Nocturaline is on line so we chat a little. When I summon Wolta Leroy Casper Hunter transports as well but is not equipped so has to return to the surface for his quad, Nocturaline provides him with RKs.

Wolta takes us to the Training Grounds via Crystal Palace, during the transition a quad takes one shot at us. We wait for Casper at Crystal Palace. We encounter the Cosmic Horrors at 1816. After the excitement of getting this SSS on the road the rest is bound to be a disappointment.

Wolta’s hour:- Within five minutes of starting Wolta reports a lack of mobs. Skill gains were poor too.
Kills: 13 + 14

Cee’s hour:- Decent density and skill gain messages seemed more frequent than is usual. Even had a few decent loots but not the one that matters.
Kills: 23 + 18

Nocturaline’s hour:- No Horrors to begin but that changed. A gain of +1.35% in Captain.
Kills: 22+ 20

This week’s stats.
Kill total – 110
Balance – Loss of 53 PED
Return – 84%

Next week Space Skilling Saturday will be staying at Calypso.


Training TigeRPaw

TigeRPaw had expressed an interest in Space Skilling, some time ago she did warp the ship see Warps: Rocktropia – Crystal Palace – Next Island so is not a complete novice however this was about two and a half years ago.

We took my Quad from the surface of Calypso to the Space Station and then onto Crystal Palace where from the Hanger we TP’d aboard, the ship being positioned too close to the asteroid to permit a direct transfer from the Quad.

From here TigeRPaw piloted the ship from dock to the Training Grounds while listening to my very basic instructions, once Horrors were spotted I stayed in a turret while she collected the first two before going to the repair stations. TigeRPaw collect five in total and once there were no more skills to be had was talked through positioning the ship ready for them to be killed, which was done successfully.

TigeRPaw repeated this without any further instruction, there was a hiccup in that I took a phone call that I could not hurry and we ended up with a little more than five Horrors and a ship very close to blowing from either repair point but we managed it. Unfortunately this did take quite a lot of time during which TigeRPaw gained no skills but some experience.

We went through the process a third time, this time eight Horrors were collected, drained and killed. After repairs I took the ship back to Crystal Palace while TigeRPaw was in Engineering and later in a turret.

The whole session lasted about one and three quarter hours and even resulted in a small profit. At Crystal Palace we went our separate ways. TigeRPaw may join us for Space Skilling Saturday once in a while.

Cee’s hour:-During the first session at the guns a 116 PED Cosmic Horror Young. The second session, I needed to leave the gun as not enough repair was being done. The Horrors were very nicely distributed especially at the start and I got a lot of skill messages, this is one of the best sessions at helm I have had in a long time.
Kills: 24 + 24

Nocturaline’s hour:- First stack had lost aggro and it took a while to get them all, also there was some bad loot lag. Nocturaline had difficulties finding the second stack. She reports a gain of 1.16% in Captain skill and 31% done towards VSE 49.
Kills: 19 + 14 + 1
