    No doubt the Elite team will miss you, like we all will :) Good luck on the secret project!

    TBH I'm not sure you had any hope in the first place as you're not really invested in whether I understand it or not. But ok then :) so that must mean that you DO understand it. If you can invest a little time, I would like that ask if you can kindly explain it to me. Tell me where I'm going wrong please so that I can learn from it. Help me understand what I'm missing here. If you point something out that I'm clearly missing I will certainly thank you for it. Looking fwd to your response so I can finally get a grip on this thing.

    Not so. You can do very well with passenger missions these days. Very profitable indeed. Have at it.

    Sounds like another bad excuse to me. I can say for certain that I never felt even slightly inclined to cheat, not even for a second. FD's only mistake was not fixing the exploit earlier. There is no excuse for cheating, ever, regardless of how long it takes to fix something. Their punishment was practically a slap on the wrist compared to other online games, and IMO the cheaters should be thanking FD that they can still log into their accounts. Anywhere else, and they'd most likely be banned right now.

    Lots of people here who believe, for whatever reason, that making large sums of money quickly is a sin and that making money in a glacial fashion is virtuous.

    Thank you FD for putting your foot down. I find it funny that the ones that seems to be whining are most likely the ones that are hit by the removal of engineering. This feels a little bit like Salomé's Revenge on the sheep in wolves clothing. Does this mean that Salomé still around considering the ship that killed her most likely had the ship engineering? Drew just saying! Karma has a funny way of coming around and biting you in the when you least expect it. Having fun at the cost of someone else is called bullying, and I have to say I have no love for bullies.

    It didn't hurt me 'cos in 21 years of online gaming I've never cheated or exploited yet still managed to enjoy and occasionally be rather good at gaming. If you can't help cheating, sod off and don't come back until you grow up.

    I asked the question on the live stream and the answer was, NO you cannot use both controllers at the same time, the Dualshock 4 will only work for PS UI functions and the headphone socket... So no touchpad gal map, (Use the DS4. It's right _there_!) no gyro head tracking, (DS4 + duck tape to the head. Simples.) no SRV driving (Nothing lost. DS4 is right there next to me.) I always use Joysticks for flight sims, but having to CLUNK around in the galaxy map, Hat head-Look in cockpit and drive the SRV with a Hotas just doesn't work aswell as a mouse/touchpad and twinsticks for driving...

    Boom! 1000th I think perm bans would have been way too harsh though. Even account resets. They couldn't have gone that far I don't think. Imagine those who only gave it a try, didn't use it against any player and then lost their entire fleet, back to square one. Who is going to want to start again ? They only thing they'd want to start is a revolution. So imagine a perm ban ?!! Nah, that would be going too far and the punishment wouldn't fit the crime.

    Right - the cheat basically consisted of creating an inconsistency between the game client and the game server, and exploiting that inconsistency. That would have probably left a paper trail in the server logs (because inconsistencies usually are symptoms of bugs, so devs will add code to the server to write them to the log if they detect them), and all that FDev needed to do to find the cheats was to find a bunch of these error log entries coming from the same game client in a short period of time. Someone who accidentally triggered the inconsistency would have just one or two isolated transaction error logs.

    I know this has already been said plenty of times but I really feel Frontier dropped the ball on the pure trade ships. Theres literally no reason to use one beside price over the multiple purpose ships and all they are are placeholders til you get enough money to buy a multipurpose ship. I think its really stupid that all of the trade ships have inferior cargo capacity as well as inferior jump ranges to the multirole ships in the same weight ranges. Trade ships are made ONLY for hauling stuff they should actually have the biggest cargo capacities and longest jump ranges besides explorer vessels and be the most fuel efficient as well. Its the trade off for having no weapons and being non maneuverable. The biggest flaw in this game is how the trading and commodities market is handled. Its a shame because it would be the easiest way to actually give players something to care about besides grinding to buy a bigger combat ship. Logistics should be pretty much the lifeblood of this game instead of...

    Lot of apologists and cheaters here, it's great what FDEV did, but Quince is an exploit too. Of course hypocrisy doesn't see it that way, and will pretend that their logic of bypassing the grind is somehow different and 'justified' from the engineer exploiters. My ships are legit modded and I got my money through legitimate ingame means. It wasn't all 'legal' by crime standards, but gamewise totally legit, usually one hatchbreaker at a time.

    These cheats clearly don't realize how lightly they've gotten off. A lot of MMOs would have perma-banned them, instead they just need to grind their modules the same the rest of us did. It's the equivalent of robbing the bank, getting caught, and the judge just tells the robber that he needs to give the money back and get a real job.

    I barely touched the mail slot when farming the LYR bonus and got killed for some unknown reasons (2kMJ shields). Made a ticket and my exploration data was given back (about 500m after bonus). So very much appreciated.

    Yep, I think I might have helped contribute to them turning that off so I knew about it probably on the day or the day after. All that is left now is, as you say, long range missions. What that didn't turn off was the other cash cow of the plant scan missions.

    Months before the Zurara was discovered Drew revealed that the Formidine Rift mystery had been "enhanced" to take advantage of new features available in the game and to make it something bigger then it initially was when released in Gamma. This was never intended to be a Rubik's Cube type puzzle to solve. It was always intended to be part of a a narrative ... one that got sidetracked by Frontier's focus on other elements of gameplay (i.e. PowerPlay) over and above the desire to tell a consistent and compelling story via GalNet. I fear that Frontier still hasn't figured out the proper pace for story telling but that's a different discussion. As for "covering up for Drew" ... even if the worse accusations are true and there was nothing to be found out there until 2.3 was released you are pointing fingers at the wrong person. If Frontier didn't have anything out there then Drew was as much a victim as anyone else. If you've paid close attention though I think that it's pretty obvious that there always was...
