More shooting stuff… Been progressing pretty easily through the set of missions form this agent. Picked up a few little bits and pieces, but I’m still not really satisfied with my targeting process. I’m sure there must be a better way.
Step one – see the red on my list, right click.
Step two – choose lock target
Step three – choose to approach/orbit or keep at range
Step four – wait until within weapons range, activate weapons (the high slots are currently mapped to my Naga 1-3 keys)
As each is destroyed I have to start again.
It seems… well untidy? You can also right click, or hold down over the targets, but they do have a tendency to buzz about some, making that difficult.
I also discovered two ships in my inventory, that must have been gifts from CCP at some point. One is a BattleCruiser, so it will be some time before I use it. The other is another frigate, but it seems to have fewer turrets than the current ship.
Still I decided to move the frigate. This meant training another race’s ships. I fitted some weapons, more for show than any expectation of being able to actually defend my ship. Then I flew it to the current system I am operating in.
Successfully transfered and safe in the Station Hanger.
It’s a much more sophisticated looking ship than the contraptions I have been flying. Called a Sarum Magnate (I think).
Back into the action I go.
