    The 'i' word crowd: They could have a cow that poops pure gold bars and would still complain about all the poop everywhere. I'm loving this! When they said weekend I though 'ah I'm working nights all weekend no chance for me to join in but lots of people will have fun so ok' the I read 24th-30th for the second time as my brain was just awake from a nap. YIPPEE! Even shift workers are thought about! G AWESOMENESS!!

    I've never heard anyone suggest turning Elite into 'Eve in cockpits', i've never played eve so i cannot comment further, except to say that David Braben was stating as far back as 1999 that Elite IV would be multiplayer, we waited a long time for it and then when it arrived had this awful solo play mode incorporated which IMHO serves to undermine, and ruin in some ways the multi-player ideology.

    That would be so awesome. I could probably spend hours just walking through the park and exploring everything as a visitor.

    Hi all, I was reminiscing with friends about Descent, and started looking online for a space game like Descent to try out. I found Star Citizen, and it looked really cool! Talking with friends I learned it was (and has been) in development, and if I wanted to try a space flight game, try Elite Dangerous. I started researching it and was a bit intimidated by the comments about learning curves, etc., but many comments said it was worth it! So I made sure my PC could handle it, and finally found it on sale! I bought it and installed it on my PC at home. This was over 3 weeks ago. I used to play Descent with a Thrustmaster Joystick (I was pretty good at Descent) so I started investigating their new joysticks. Much more research, and finally decided their T.16000 FCS Duo would work for me. It arrived 2 weeks ago, and I spent the next week setting up the key mappings, learning what was important to have immediately available on the game, and started running the Trainings sometime last week. I had yet to...

    Also, check the manufacturer of your powerline network adapters to see if there is a firmware update. When I moved, my Netgear powerline adapters did not work *at all* until I flashed the new firmware which was odd as I figured they would work anywhere. But I guess in this apartment complex I live in now has terrible frequencies in the power that needed an upgrade. So check if there is an upgrade and you might also consider a factory reset of your powerline adapters if they have such an option (my Netgear's do).

    I do not track those, but I woke up in Off-Topic today, so the I think Community Relations *is* working on *something*. On topic: In aerospace, we literally had to interpolate with hard-wired machine code *in machines*, so re-writes were not an option. Things like 555 timers, J/K filp-flops, N/AND gates had to be considered. I think Jack is correct; at this stage the whole game is constrained by it's legacy code decisions.

    Since when do you get to use the term "we", apropos losing interest? Just who are you speaking for or about? I've not played it for a few weeks, but that's perfectly normal given I enjoy all kinds of other games. But I doubt I'll lose interest at any stage in Elite's lifetime. There is nothing else quite like it at the moment, so it's going to need direct competition (something much more than NMS on Xbox) to really make me, or a lot of people, drift away. Sure, Elite's still often a jumble of legacy design issues, and FDev do seem obsessed with RNG grinds, but it's also still unique, and at times still uniquely brilliant.

    To be fair, this is probably older than EVE. I remember having constant debates in the Jumpgate forums (Jumpgate predates EVE by about 2 years) between the mostly European "Carebears" and the mostly American "Space Rambos" (or whatever other derogatory name we used to call them - I don't remember exactly). The topic was - surprise surprise - the handling of griefers and mostly unregulated PvP.

    I wish to have the ability to actually tour your own park as a guest. First person view would be ideal but would settle on third. Just as long as you had complete control on where you want to go and what you want to look at.

    The best thing FD could do for solo and PG is PP goes open only is remove all PP ships from spawning outside of open and instead spawn more of other ships. That alone would be a big enough olive branch for me SO LONG AS FD stick to their promise and never do this for any other feature. I am guessing this won't happen however and we will still get those PP ships even tho they offer nothing outside of open and just waste our time.

    Thanks, FDEV. I'm sorry you have to put up with all the negative posts. it's only a gimmick if you want to look at it like that and yes I'm one of the "oldies" on the forum too. A Shakespeare said " Participate or don't participate.....that is the question " Don't moan
