    Hello all, I'll post some observations after a week of playing ED(H). First, this game is a big thing. It has been a long time since I was truly impressed by any game, and this includes many AAA titles. ED is awesome in so many aspects, from ship handling to world size, carreer paths and things to do... where I have to start complaining. It has only been a week, tried trading, missions, mining and some combat too. I feel I'm an explorer type, so I took a Cobra for a short trip of about 1200 Lys... and that was enough to get me an AspX. People condemn the "grind" in this game, but I never even thought about it. Another casual excursion allowed me to kit out the Asp with everything I need, and then after a day's trip to some nebulas and back, I have like 25M Cr and nothing to spend on. I know there are some expensive ships and then equipment, and even the Asp has eaten up some 16M, but economy is so generous that it doesn't feel like an accomplishment. I haven't even found an untouched system,...

    Greetings Commanders, The Elite Dangerous servers will be offline for PC at 13:00 (UTC) today for approximately 5 minutes to apply the 3.3.05 patch. This patch will address the crash that can occurring from dropping out of Supercruise (either by choice, or after an interdiction). We’re aiming to roll out the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 fix for this on 21 Thursday. More information about that when we have it. Thank you for your understanding!

    People are using their alt accounts to queue up for games and just kill their alt accounts over and over again. Queued into someone doing that today. Just thought you guys at FD should know about it. I don't know if you care about it however.

    https://community.elitedangerous.com/en/galnet/uid/5c667ef723d8ab6ede7748b2 OK, some fluff about secret research outpost and stuff. And GalNet reports that a 300 mega-ton yield fusion bomb got stolen - "enough to level an entire city" 300 mega-tons? How big are cities in Elite Dangerous? :eek: A reminder, the tsar bomb - the biggest H-bomb ever exploded in real world - had a yield of around 50-60 mega-tons. And that thing would have been enough to level a big city (circle of total destruction of 35 Km). I understand that bigger is better in story telling, but that is a bit over the top. Even a 30 mega-ton fusion bomb would have been a really scary bomb. 300 mega-tons is a bit of overkill in terms of story telling (in my opinion).

    Shinrarta Dezhra should be a non pvp region. I like open play. I want to be in open play but, SD is supposed to be a safe haven for Elites (according to elite law, to my knowledge), it's bad enough that no Imperial mission givers are in JM. On top of this getting tag teamed by pvp'ers is a total put off for non PvP'ers and noobs to pvp especially when, in some cases, it is impossible to evade interdictions or, you're interdicted one after another with no way to escape. High wake,,, you often don't get the time to with a ps4 controller, that's for certain. I'm gonna have to go solo unfortunately and switching from solo to open every time just ain't gonna happen. I heard open players complain that there isn't enough people in open play, if you change SD pvp I'm sure you'll see a difference. Just a disgruntled suggestion, from a player that hasn't got the contacts to counter two pvp'ers (This happens a lot) let alone the engineering levels to compete in PvP 1v1. 😬

    Do any of these pictures express your view of E: D's balance? Specifically, the balance between PvE'ers and PvP'ers, not the CMDR-NPC balance (although there is a knock on effect here too), or PvP-PvP ship balance. A) - B) - C) - FDev decided early on that E: D would be a game of two halves. Those that wanted to engage in digitally simulated combat, could. While those that didn't want to, wouldn't have to. This choice seemingly caters to a wide range of playstyles, while leaving every door open for everyone to experience everything the game has to offer. A smart move... except instead of an open and accessible platform, what we have is two very strident camps that only engage in activities outside of their preferred sphere, in order to achieve an objective that was rendered otherwise meaningless for a given player by the separation, not inclusion, of playstyles. FDev's decision broke the game in a number of ways... Firstly, my own personal bug-bear comes in two parts...

    Well, I played for a number of months hitting the wanted at the nav points, then played delivery boy with the typical rares circuit in a type 6. Finally got to play with the Python I was so looking forward to. Got ripped up and no second chance recovery. The only options are to go back to the type 6 or the starter. Well, I'm done. Consider this a rage quit or whatever but definately a sensation of being let down. There's a hell lot more games out there to play out than getting shot up and essentially getting told too bad. I wish the community well but I'm moving on if this is the expected.

    15 incursions this week and 15 new stations on fire: At the current rate we have 1000 weeks until the bubble is gone, so no need to move to Colonia yet I guess :) Anyway, I'll let you get back to your rage-quit threads :D

    ...what is the point? Just do a live stream when there's something to show us. Watching people making idle conversation while playing a game is extremely boring. It's like the video game equivalent of Gogglebox.

    With 9000 hours played I've put my flight kit into the box and placed the box on a top shelf. After trying to scan one system with not much luck I decided spending 45 minutes trying to locate the last gas giant a lost cause. I am now sinking my time into another game while I wait for elite dangerous to get some serious updates to their broken exploration system and some new content. Perhaps in five years time it will be playable again.

    Ok, my ship's currently floating about 2/3 of the way to Sag A and it's been there for 3 weeks, and I can't decide whether to go forward or back because I got bored and took a break. But I have tried out the new explo quite a bit and have some thoughts on it. While I like some aspects of it, others are too overdone, mainly the surface scanning. It actually takes quite a while to play "sit and spin" and scan each new system for signal sources. That should be enough. Targeting and tuning a body, then zooming in on it should be enough to get the surface data and any points of interest on it. The whole "fly all the freak'n way to a planet and fire probes at it's face" thing is actually pretty cool and fun for like, the first dozen times, but then becomes extremely repetitive, time consuming and boring. Even today, we don't have to physically fly all the Mercury to get a gist of what it has going on (not much). The surface scan should just work automatically once you zoom in when in analysis mode. Also,...

    I have stopped playing ED for quite some time ago. After I grinded enough money to buy certain ships (like Anaconda), I simply didn't feel there was anything in there for me to do anymore...except to keep on piling up money (doing passenger or cargo missions)..the game seems to a bit..too repetative. I know there is option of going to distant worlds..but in my opinion, it takes way too much time and hours to get there..and once you do get there..it's all the same, different (generated) planets...pretty much all the same. Just my opinion..not sure if I'm the only one here thinking that..but felt the need to share.

    Welcome CMDR's! It's been a while since I did one of these so bear with me as I may be a bit rusty. In this special edition we'll not be exploring the deeper depths of a persons love for their ship nor will we be discussing the strange mating habits of space monsters - No, instead we'll be revealing our deep dark secret love within the Elite galaxy! Yes folks, it's time to come clean and reveal all... Challenge: Send a valentines message in the form of a forum post to the person/object/spacial body of your hearts desire. It could be anyone or thing that is related to the Elite universe but don't hold back. Tell us everything you feel for them, use pictures (No nudes - Nobody wants to see your SRV naked Alec.) Also as it's nearly the weekend you may as well tell us your plans for galactic domination too...

    I got a 2nd account last week, since it was on sale, but really have not done anything with it other than log on and get it working. BTW, for those with multiple accounts, this tool is amazingly easy to use and props to the creator: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/137688-Tool-E-D-Account-Switcher?highlight=account+switcher. I was thinking about resetting my current save, but just could not bear to do it. I have had it since the start (either late 2015 or early 2016) and just could not clear it out. So, my main reasons for the second account boil down to these: 1) Open mode only. I played in solo mode (or PG's) almost exclusively on my first account until very recently. The second account will be open mode only from the start (aside from the occasional need to land at an outpost or planetary base occupied by an NPC). 2) Credits do not matter. With the credit explosion, I can pretty much buy any ship I want in little to no time. 3) FA-off only. I only use FA-off when needed...
