Just curious to know how everyone plays in regards to ship-juggling.
I use a hauler as my default ship, my plan was to turn it into a Millennium Falcon style, heavily upgraded weapons and shields type ship. This philosophy worked fine pre-Atlas Rises but with the additions and changes to ship combat, even with max shield upgrades, I’m still feeling a little outmatched.
I do have an A class fighter gathering dust in the hangar on my freighter, and seeing as I’m not really hauling a lot of stuff right now, I might switch to it and upgrade it to give me a more of a chance.
How I always wanted to play was I’d be bombing around in my hauler then a fight kicks off, I summon my freighter and jump into my fighter to deal with it. (Can you even summon your freighter mid-combat?)
I feel like I’m being pushed into having a maxed fighter as my default ship, and just use the hauler for ferrying goods from my farm to where I’m selling them.
So what type of ship does everyone use as a default?
I’m going to play at the weekend with the sole aim of getting the Rocket Blueprint plus the Economy and Conflict Scanners. This is in a hope to boost my haulers firepower and also find wealthy systems to hopefully get a better fighter.
Also I would be eternally grateful if people could share pictures of their tech load-out installations, how you’ve optimised all your upgrades to get the best possible bonuses.
