Am working from home today and plan to dip into it over lunch.

I have pretty much decided the following though:
- I will only play it on private mode, I have no desire for interaction with cunts ingame.
- I will only play the bits I understand, the whole factions and engineers bit has left me completely nonplussed.
- I only like flying about in space, the planet landings are (visuals aside, will take that as read) deadly dull.

You should try the Mobius private group Snowy. No gits out for pvp griefing but it got a bit of life to it that just plays the environment.

Engineers is alright mate worth a general dabble to improve stuff like fsd range etc power play is bollox though.

Planetary side is OK but horses for courses I guess.

Pick the group option at start up screen instead of open or private. Type in Mobius to add yourself to the authorisation list the chap that runs it strangely called Mobius will let you in after about a day or so maybe a lot less if he's online. Once he's done that the option to join in the group will appear in the group list.

Finally got my Federal Assault Ship - packs a fair punch but seems to have shields made of tissue paper!

Meh, yeah I suppose.

Getting the Chief Petty Officer Federation rank was pure grind, and I suspect the Engineers is going to be the same...

It's easy to get a decent level with them. Level 3 of 5 is attainable easily and gives a decent boost to whatever you want to boost. The "grind" is there if you want it and some do. The best way of getting to level 3 is to just spam level 1. The level 1 requirements for any given enginner are usually very simple to fulfill with easy to find stuff. Visit to engineer to see what they want and just collect lots of that stuff for level 1. Go back and spam the thing until you get level 3 to 4 unlocked. Don't bother applying any of the results of the level one spam. Wait till you unlock level 3.

Inara.cz is a good site for researching where to find materials. Also the engineers sub forum on frontier has stickies that are worth looking at.

Oh man I remember them so well from the old Elite - when you got ripped out of hyperspace and found yourself in empty space with no stars nearby, you knew you were in trouble...
