Ok folks, seeing more instances of people getting stranded in PvP space for various reasons, here’s a simply but helpful guide to best avoid finding yourself in a similar scenario.
A). Plan your journey - not hard look at map, plot ur course count the required Pentax (make sure to take that amount with you)
B). PvE systems - do you pass through one on your travels? Ocd can be accessed here may be a wise idea to store some Pentax in you ocd.
C). Attacked and died ? This can leave you without means of travel make sure to have atleast a warp sled ready to spawn in your factory, very cheap very basic cv.
D). Spare device - again attacked and maybe you got away but can’t warp? Keep a back up warpcore and tank incase, even place a couple in different cargo boxes on the ship.
E). Never use public ships as a for of guidance - your not the only ones who can see this and may attract unwanted attention.
Players won’t always be willing to help or provide a pickup from PvP space. And also giving your location or even playfield can leave you vulnerable to attack from others who may see your distress cry in global chat. So final word of advice pick a supporter, someone you know won’t back stab you, seek to add them on steam or contact them via discord and make sure your faction is allied with them, otherwise shots maybe fired and ur left stranded as they think it’s a trap.
Also some advice for anyone attending these calls.
A). Never talk in global again take it to steam or discord.
B). ensure you have nothing of value.
C). Place a container publicly coded on the exterior of the ship easily accessible if they need fuel or Pentax (reduces risk to you)
D). Ensure your warp tank is fueled and ur warp target is locked before the meet, this way if it is a trap you can align and leave promptly.
E). Place a cockpit in a reinforced area of the ship, frontal cockpits on prefab ships are a deathtrap, you would be aswell to select suicide in combat lol.
This is the best advice I can think for both parties in that situation
