I do actually have a quick question for any veteran of NMS. I can't get the hang of ship to ship combat, the ship controls are too floaty for me to accurately target enemy ships so I find myself in 5-10 minute dogfights against single ships because I can't ever lock on to them. Any tips? I still have a relative noob ship (B class - 27 slots with minimal boosts to stats). Are there any auto lock weapons that I can just fire in their general direction?
As of right now, this is pretty frustrating for me because there is a main mission that's locked behind getting ship kills :/
I'm not sure if they patched it but in 5.2 there was a glitch where you can dupe your photon canons. Search NMS jetpack duplication on youtube and it's the same principal,only do it once do because three dupes makes the visuals to strong and whites out the screen,it's made me the king of the sky, and with a few shield modules I haven't died once in space combat.
If they have it patched. Farm nanite clusters and deck out your ship with S ranked modules (the yellow upgrades at the space stations) Best advice is to hit the breaks and turn as quickly as possible and wait for the ships to come your way and strafe the fuckers. Always break before they pass you and flip to the directional indicator.
