Hello fellow commanders and
I just randomly got an invite the other day and I really like the idea of playing Elite with other people. So far I have only come across a handful of other commanders in game. I'm currently grinding out credits for a new ship, primarily by smuggling, as I have had my ASP for quite some time now and I would like a change. Additionally I don't really know what this "group" (I'm tempted to say "community" but I'm not sure if it applies) stands for, but I only just got here so I'm sure I will learn more in time.
One thing I could use some help on is how to appropriately use the in-game comms as I've only had the opportunity once and I couldn't figure out how to respond to the commander who messaged me with a direct message. Here is to hoping that he could read local chat.
