Elite Journal: Becoming Dangerous in LTT 4961

I’ve really enjoyed my time with the Python. It’s a fantastic ship that allows me to feel extremely competitive with every opponent. With that said, it’s time for a change, and I’m now the proud owner of an Anaconda!

I had to work on things for a few weeks to make it happen, because although I had the basic funds to cover the ship purchase and insurance, my fitting would have been pretty poor (and still is – I still need to upgrade some items to A-Class). So I cashed in and sold all my other ships, including my exploration, mining and trading vessels. I’m going to miss my T9. :(

I rarely have time to get out there and earn credits. The most enjoyable way for me, is combat. I tried fighting on behalf of the Empire in a conflict zone, backed up by one of the Imperial Capital Ships, but frankly felt disappointed by the earnings.

I decided to move my operations to LTT 4961, an independent system occupied by the NULL anti-pirate organization. I figured that as a bounty hunter, this might be a good place for me to be. My total credits went up quite a bit!

After a few days, I gained my promotion to ‘Dangerous’ from the Pilots Federation. This felt great, as it came before I’d even upgraded my ship!

Once I had my Anaconda prepped, I thought I would make a trip to see the fruit of my work on the Among the Stars community goal. It’s time to head off to Obsidian Orbital in the Pleiades Nebula! tend

  1. Hello Tim, I have enjoyed your videos and have learned a lot from you. I’m new to ED but I am doing good so far trading rares and I have a Cobra 3. When I started the game I was attacked often by pirates looking for an easy kill. I leared about the code group and thanks to you I now know about the Null group. Great fun. Thank you.

  2. Thanks for the kind comments. :) Hope to see you around and feel free to add twhtly to your friends in the game. :)

My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.

I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.

These days I use gaming to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I also occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch, and rather than doing this to instruct others of the best way to play, I do it because of the social interaction with viewers and other gamers.
