No problem, happy to help. I'm hardly a veteran or anything but I've gotten the hang of most aspects of the game, at least those that you need to know to get in the groove anyway.

My ASP explorer is kitted out to a value of about 12mil and I have another 5 mil in the bank. Feel like I'm starting to make progress, though it's still slow. Trying to decide whether to mix things up and go for more combat oriented ship or stick with my jack of all trades ASP. Long distance passenger trips with scanning data can earn good money but I'm getting the itch for something a bit more exciting.

This is on the same level as Oblivion for 'ok the game has started, what do I do now?'. The complexity of it is quite staggering, I can spend 15 minutes on the ship kit screen and still be none the wiser. I've no idea what my passenger capacity is and I think I've only got 2 cargo slots. Someone give me an idea of one thing to do right at the beginning?

Data delivery missions - they don't take up any cargo slots and are usually only 1 or 2 system jumps. Nice and straightforward way to ease you into the various aspects of the game - take-off/regular flight/warp-jumping/supercruise/landing.

Just to say, if you're playing on PS4 and you're not playing on one of these

http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5725847

Then you're doing it wrong. It's absolutely fantastic having all the controls to hand, the mapping (aside from the triangle button) is perfect. It looks like Argos have removed the £38 option now but you can still find occasional ones for £48 depending on stock location, if there is one near you then I'd highly recommend it.

So I've just discovered community goals. A great way to earn cash whilst exploring areas I wouldn't normally. I now have assets totalling about 30mil credits.

Hey everyone,

A quick question for Xbox players. Looking at this as a possible coop game with friends.

Is it possible to play this in a private group (friends only) as a PvE type game.

If so, how does it work? Can you do missions together or complete trading runs together. Are there any limitations here?

Thanks.
