While working on the advance military career tutorial I find myself headed back to base with a trail of smoke and flame coming from my ship… an ominous start at least.
Looking back on this video I noticed a number of mistakes. I said something several times about launching drones but somehow didn’t get them launched and so didn’t have their help which would have made life a LOT easier and maybe prevented me from having to leave in flames.
Another one was that the shield hardener was not turned on. Having that actually running would have helped a lot as well. Thing is, it took me a while to realize that just having the module installed wasn’t enough and that it had to be explicitly turned on in order to do any good. Somehow nothing ever showed me that or I’d have certainly used it.
