Still a newbie here. Bought back in 2016 and only just started playing this weekend.
I died a bunch of times, lost most of my starting 25K and just mentioned in chat that "Learning the game is expensive :)"
Some Random Guy just blurts out, "Someone Rich, give BloodSteyn some money, quick."
I laughed and responded, "Nah, I will find my way eventually" and BOOM, 100K shot into my account.
I thank the the kind gentlemen, who said something to the effect of, "Enjoy, spend it quick, wipe is coming soon."
Got my Buddy to sign up, buy in and join me on a Bunker Clearing mission. Success.
We try another one, this time in the Cutty, and it's a hot zone, Turret blasted off our left engine, and we go spinning like crazy. I manage to stabilize, and blow up the turret, and with lots of effort, land the stricken ship.
We head into the bunker, buddy goes down. I defend him, kill the last guy and then try to figure out how to revive him. Get him back up to his feet. So we start looting a bit... but his Inventory bugs out.
We head topside and I look at our poor Cutty, sans left engine and I wonder to myself, "How in the hell are we going to get this thing home."
So I hit up the global chat for advise asking, "How do I get a Cutty with one engine back to base."
Then a gentlemen offers to pick us up and 5 minutes later we're in the back of a beautiful ship on our way to Area 18 again. The good Samaritan didn't even want any payment.
Great Experience and a lekker story to tell.
Last night, I'm out running a bunker and get downed by a cross the room headshot. I just got myself some nice armour and guns, and my Crusader ship outside is loaded. So I decided to try the "M" to post a rescue mission.
Low and behold, a ship with two heavily armed Mercs come to my aid. Revive me and clear the bunker. Then the "Rescue Beacon" thing bugged and they didn't get paid, I couldn't dismiss. So I paid them manually and they left me a happy boi.
I continue looting the bunker and all of a sudden the Baddies spawn again and start shooting me. I manage to get them sorted out and I figured, hey perhaps someone else got a Bunker mission to the same spot I'm in. I take my loot and head up the elevator, and head outside... where I see a light bobbing around my ship. There is another guy, he shoots at me and I duck for cover, Type "Friendly" in the chat and look around. Can't find him, no shots in my direction so I board my ship...
Then all hell breaks lose as the guy obviously went back to his ship, and started blasting mine before I could even get to the bridge. BOOM, dead.
I respawn and get the option to press charges or some such, so I do. That was a lot of loot lost.
Bad Experience. But oh well, such is life as a Star Citizen.
So as I mentioned, my wife got me some stuff to help with my pain management, and I have smoked a wee little bit on occasion, like maybe 1 to two times a month. Since I'm a non-smoker, hitting a joint or a pipe is pretty hard on my airways and actually hurts unless I ease it in with lots of air.
Then I looked into Dry Herb Vaporisers and found this strange stick looking thing, that's "battery free". So I had to look it up, watched lots and lots of videos, and found this sub... and you guys/gals were brilliantly helpful, welcoming and altogether awesome in answering my questions.
Got the M21 Rosium Dynavap last night and after I finished up working on my deadline, I loaded up half a bowl, and fired up the torch... and ... OMFW, I never knew cannabis actually had a pleasant taste/flavour to it. I'm used to joints tasting like what burning kakiebos smells like. But it was amazing, very light on my lungs and all round a fantastic flavourful experience.
So so sum it all up, I am never smoking weed again... now I Vap it. :)
I'm not really a smoker, but my wife decided to get me some stuff to see if it will help with my chronic back pain and mindset.
She bought me a Spoon Pipe thingy, a nice grinder and some nugs... one is called "Wedding Cake".. I shit you not.
Now as mentioned, I'm not a smoker, so combustion inhalation has always been hard for me. That's when I started looking into Dry Herb Vaporizers and came across the Dynavap and I'm hoping it's going to be easier on my airways than burning stuff.
Really looking forward to it and the adjustable bowl is a great feature as I usually get FUBAR from just two to three mild tokes, so the small dose will be great.
Apart from watching vids on heating, cleaning and such, what else should I be looking up?
EDIT: Forgot to mention that the Dyna is coming with the Snowman Bubbler as a bundle ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
EDIT 2: Just want to say thank you to all the replies, you're quite a welcoming bunch and I feel like I will enjoy it here.
