    The gameplay potential of trying to sneak through an asteroid field in a stealthy ship, to witness/scan something without being detected/destroyed, is much greater... The gameplay potential of trying to escort a convoy of ships through an asteroid field to an asteroid base, using a number of assigned NPC wingmen to help, is much greater... The gameplay potential of trying to attack a convoy of ships going through an asteroid field enroute to an asteroid base, using a number of assigned NPC wingmen to help, is much greater... The gameplay potential of signing up to an hour long military tour of duty on a capital ship as a fighter (using a number of assigned NPC wingmen?) to undertake tasks such as clearing out some pirates from a location, before then torpedoing their asteroid base, is much greater. The gameplay potential of full station blockade mechanics where you come out of SC a long distance out, and where you are either then trying to enforce the blockade or run the blocakde, is much greater.

    Well, as a new player it is impossible to recognize such a system. I just hope someone will blab about it and I can make a profit before it is nerfed. Just need the money to do what is fun but impossible without and too time consuming normally.

    Specifically, it's named after the *combat* rank. Elite: Entrepreneur and Elite: Ranger would also be valid titles - CQC could be rebranded "Elite: Hero" on the same logic - but give a very different impression about what the game is about. Which is more likely: - Frontier subtitled the game "Dangerous" for marketing reasons to give an impression of ... er ... danger, and maybe even excitement, in a way that "IV" doesn't, and then came up with a bit of in-game justification for it - Frontier subtitled the game "Dangerous" purely due to an obscure bit of lore which, so far after three years of game releases, has exactly zero in-game effect, and other than in "actually this is why it's called Elite Dangerous" posts never comes up out of game either.

    Go right ahead, there's been a fair few people wanting the FR bobblehead in game. All credit to CMDR D0lphin for the design and image, one of the surprisingly large number of talented artists within the Fuel Rats.

    FWIW and just to let you know, the Beta is so unstable for me that I'm not going to continue beta testing until the next update. Hopefully today, otherwise no beta testing during this Weekend for me. I've already sent 5 or 6 crash reports from one evening, where otherwise I usually get 1 or 2 crashes per month at most.

    Malic replied to a thread [ED64 2.4 Closed Beta] HUD Reticle on the target is *inside* my ship... in 2.4 Beta Bug Reports
    @Qa-Johnny *was* getting this on the right eye only in the Oculsu Rift, but was only happening very early during the beta yesterday, not getting it anymore. Also noticed that when it was happening, the window dirt ( was flying an Asp Explorer at the time ) was also rendering though the console in front of the pilot. Also had the see though target cursor on the Imperial Courier, but again, was right eye only, not sure if the window dirt thing was doing it, as the ICourier does not have any windows that overlap its console/dashboard. I was going to try to record a video, but it went away after a relog to desktop, so have not had it happen again, will try to capture it if it happens again though.

    *nod* agreed. I'm about as far from being a PvPer as you can get*, but I fly in Open and accept it's going to happen. If it happens too much, I'll find another solution, but I'll never combat log. That's just wrong. *Although I had some nice cat'n'mouse with a Code guy last night at the rares CG. Dude, if you're reading this, sorry for not replying to your comms but you were forcing me to be a little busy :)

    Because they're not paying for a specific target in a massacre mission. They're just paying you to kill a certain amount of guys on the other side. In addition, it makes plenty of sense - both parties want the number of ships and pilots available to the target reduced through violence. Both parties then benefit from the reduction of ships and pilots flying for the target. Moving your argument on to a logical extension - declaring that you should only be paid by one person for killing a target then competely removes the value of a kill-warrant scanner, because surely once you've cashed in one of the bounties criminal A has on their head, why would the other three or four factions who've also put a price on his head have to pay you? As for evidence that you're working only for them, the Pilot's Federation is entirely neutral. I suspect that anyone making the demand that any of the members work exclusively for them and nobody else even temporarily would very quickly find it completely impossible to hire...

    Это верно. На самом деле, цифры просто абсурдны. Полностью проинженеринный шип становится раза так в 3-4 круче своей базовой версии. Когда я первый раз увидел эти цифры, я свято верил, что это какой-то тестовый прогон, который потом будет сильно урезан, но ничего в итоге не изменилось. Конечно им сложно балансировать эту хрень - слишком большая дисперсия.

    I found the tone of the article a little arrogant, but I can see what he's driving at. At the heart, games are a pretty basic transaction. How many hours will I play this game vs. how much does it cost. If players aren't able to reconcile those two sides of the equation, that's their problem, not the game's. On that that scale, the worst games I have bought are Black & White and Dungeon Keeper. They promised so much but delivered so little. Elite Dangerous? Go read the kickstarter page. It doesn't really promise a lot. Delivered gameplay for ED and Horizons? For the money I spent, it's been huge.

    Ok... I've been using the neutron highway as a means to get from Colonia to Sag A... So far so good. Some are trickier than others as it's hard to gauge their distance while you approach. They apparently come in different densities and some you come flying up on quickly while others are easier. Anyway, I aim for the cone and try to come in at a shallow angle to spend enough time in there to get my supercharge. If I get tossed out too early, I just loop around and go through the end of the cone again. I was wrong about fuel usage.. it doesn't seem to use more fuel than using a fully boosted FSD. Is it faster than just jumping? It is if neutron stars are easy to find on the map. I happen to be in a pretty abundant layer of neutrons at the moment so, it's pretty easy to select the next one and keep jumping. I've been taking my time and scanning each one.. for some reason.. they take a long while to scan. It definitely make longs distance travel more exciting than the ol'...

    Government types and powerplay spheres of exploitation affect status of slavery. Control systems of Powers have most direct effect on the markets by prohibiting or permitting sales. Archon Delaine legalizes both kinds of slaves. Federal powers ban both kinds of slaves. Edmund Mahon of Alliance bans both kind of slaves. Imperial powers legalize Imperial slaves (unless you're Aisling Duval, then ban?) Rest of Independent powers legalize or forbid them indirectly depending on whether they close or open black markets in their control systems. Anarchies of all kinds legalize both kinds of slaves.

    ... Но потом массовое нытьё казуалов (вы шо, эта игра не должна прогибаться под пвпшников-гриферочков! Это всё молодёжи неймётся, а нам отдохнуть охота и т.д.) перегнёт палку в свою сторону и ничего не изменится Ż\_(ツ)_/Ż

    If it happens rarely I don't understand why it needs to be a highlighted point in OPs argument. Anyway, I don't want to derail the thread further.

    i have no oroblem with discussion and debate. my problem is people who have no interest in the actual topic and are just here to derail the thread because they dont like that i pointed out a problem with the game's community. so please, i politely request that if this is going to continue to just be about me pointing out comments from dumb people on reddit or in-game you leave. if youd like to further discuss the topic of the OP, then youre more than welcome to. no, i cant actually kick you out and youre free to do what you want, but as i said id rather not have this thread moderated.

    Everyone seems to be assuming the diam x or asp x is designed to be the endgame explorer vessel, able to utilize all of the exploration materials and upgrades frontier does from now on in one ship without compromising anything. Is it really this huge massive deal and "garbage design" problem(not the quoted guy obviously, but it's in the thread)? Or is it just not going to be used by every single explorer because it fails to fit perfectly in an aspx explorer min/max build? Most likely the latter. If you can't fit it then UPGRADE YOUR SHIP LIKE EVERY SINGLE OTHER PROFESSION NEEDS TO DO TO USE ENDGAME LEVEL MECHANICS. It's like complaining the piracy eagle doesn't have room for large amounts of cargo and hatchbreaker limpets or a bounty hunting vulture doesn't get to use ship launched fighters and stick a full array of contermeasures onboard along with it's grade A kill scanner and upgraded weaponry. That's kind of the point of the ship progression system in place, and the entirety of the ship...

    I'd support that. I always wait for steam to do my updates because they're faster and more stable. But they don't do the betas, so I never bother joining. My internet only ever works at about 5-7Mb/s anyway. Except when it did this once.. Lol

    Ja tam się cieszę. Trochę zdrowej konkurencji dobrze nam wszystkim zrobi. Polska scena Elite pogrążona była w maraźmie, było TWH i tyle. Liczę na to, że theRenegades będzie prężnie działającą grupą, a jest na to spora szansa, bo jej trzon to faktycznie część bardzo aktywnych graczy TWH. Polscy gracze mają teraz większy wybór. Może pojawią się jeszcze kolejne frakcje. Z pewnością będzie się działo. Na pewno będzie pole do współpracy i równie pewne są konflikty. Realizujemy po prostu hasło przewodnie Elite: Blaze your own trail! :D
