    *edit, READ NEW CONTEXT TO MY THREAD Anyways I came back to say that after some people calmed me down and one in particular explained something: That I am not AS worried as before. The person in question who told me this has the exact same exploration style as me and fully understands where I am coming from. The context I was missing it seems, was that the filter system gives an overview of the entire system and allows you to briefly judge it based on that. It is NOT only a system to filter out things you want (though you can use it for that). Frontier went on about money and the people on the forums keep telling me if I only want earth likes I can do that. Neither was what I cared for.

    On the recent livestream FD showcased the changes for exploration mechanics that will be coming with update 3.3. Among these changes was the introduction of 42 numbered regions that will allow FD to spread rumors about possible places to discover within that region, as well as allowing player discoveries to propagate to other players. (The new regions) We think this is an amazing idea! However… The Galactic Mapping Project is one of the oldest community projects in Elite Dangerous, and although we've always understood that the project is not an official 'naming' project that FD has adopted, we hope that the rich history that has been built up around it over the past few years would be taken into consideration when Frontier Developments implement their regional overlay for 3.3.

    Explorers, the long wait is almost over. We have waited. For years. Hoping. Praying. Jumping. Honking. Scanning. Eye-balling planets from orbit for.....anything of interest. Some thought a day like tomorrow would never come. Some thought that the past and future belonged to never ending releases of Combat ships.

    I'm sure more people prefer unlimited but if it comes out that also a lot wish to have limited maybe FD may consider to introduce also a scanner with limited ones (a cheaper or basic version for example) so everyone's happy. Please!? :D Edit: Thanks a lot to Obsidian Ant for his kind support!

    Seriously anyone that wants gameplay based on how much time it takes to see everything because they make movies or they want to scan the whole galaxy the fast as possible or whatever other idiot reason, should just be ignored. The current honk and show everything is clearly a placeholder and FD is doing very well to introduce at last some gameplay in exploring. If you want to find interesting stuff use the new mechanic and stop comparing the time spent with when there was no gameplay.

    I don't have a strong opinion. Just curious what others think. The recent SC demos have been pretty strong and i've observed Obsidianant for eg recently focussing on that and X4 instead of ED. Is ED getting stale i wonder? It's had a good run but maybe we're on the cusp of contenders for the crown taking it's place? Or will the unknown 'big' update we've been told to expect reassert it's dominance?? Personally i hope so. I hope it can fulfil it's planned 10 year life anyway.

    I've played this game since launch, so I've seen countless players come and go. Some stand out for their skill, leadership, accomplishments, or antics. The following list is who I would consider some of the most famous CMDR's in the Galaxy and why. CMDR ObsidianAnt - This guy has been making Elite videos as long as I can remember, and his soothing voice and great editing skills have propelled him to Elite stardom. CMDR itchynipples - If you played Elite in the first few months after launch, you possibly fell victim to this CMDR's ingenious and sometimes unscrupulous ways to see you dead. I certainly did, although I eventually got my revenge. CMDR LiquidCatnip - In the first few months of the game, before I was a leader of a group or even a member of one, I knew of LiquidCatnip who founded the East India Trading Company, a group that still exists today. CMDR S7 - Founder (I believe) and leader of the Code. There was a time in the game when sightings of the Code would send CMDR's scurrying for...

    The current system goes like this: Jump into the system Hold down your keybind to start the scan/maneuver for fueling if you are going to Scan completed, pull up the system map Make a decision on whether or not to invest more time on the system Take other actions in system or plot course and jump out The new system, if I understand it correctly, works like this:

    We have a live-stream devoted to ships soon, and since Beyond is all about improving the core of the game, I was wondering if Frontier will take an opportunity to rebalance some of the ships. The Anaconda, in particular, is (IMO) well overdue for a nerf as far as hull mass is concerned. How can a ship that big be lighter than a Federal Dropship? The Beluga needs one heck of a buff because King of Passenger Ships it ain't at the moment. The Asp Scout needs......a miracle. The Crusader needs another look by Lakon R & D. And no, the Python doesn't need a fighter bay. I'm not suggesting massive changes like additional hardpoints, but maybe an extra slot here and there, perhaps a bigger slot here and there, Maybe some dedicated exploration slots? Especially now we have Guardian FSD Boosters. What are Commanders thoughts on ship rebalancing?

    I'm a life timer who left after a couple years. I can't believe its 6 years since kickstarter. I felt there was nothing left to discover anymore and I had done pretty much everything. Sure the Thargoids are here etc but I wanted something out in the black. Now there is. I feel I owe them some more money. Its a small amount but its something. We are all getting this season for free. I know next year may not be that way but we need to keep this going. They put some notches in their belt and taken care of business that needed to be done a long time ago which is bring back the bulk of the explorers that wanted more than a big empty galaxy. They took a risk by pandering to us non combative types this year and I want to make it pay off for them.

    Man the Ornery looks drab, why not cheat the planets sizes a bit, like the posters at school.

    Critics of SL say you must have a reason for it and I agree. Its a lot of work for FDEV just to let us walk around and "oooh and ahhh" for 5 mins then back to standard operating procedures, our butts safely ensconced in our swivel chairs. What are the practical reasons for getting out of the chair to make it worth the trouble? 1. EVA operations outside ship/SRV 2. Travel to a station without your ship (taxi, tourism) 3. Scan internal dataports in bases/settlements/outposts 4. Combat boarding 5. Rescue missions 6. Sabotage missions 7. Cantina social interactions 8. What else would a spaceship pilot do when not piloting?

    For me, I like the fact that after I map a planet (which that on its own is AMAZING!!!) , I know where certain things are now, instead of dropping down and waiting for RNGesus to spawn stuff!!! 1:13:22 THIS IS WHAT I'VE ALWAYS WANTED FROM PLANETARY EXPLORATION!!! I'm really happy for this entire thing and its only 1/4 of the stuff that's coming.

    In the teaser there are two applications pending. I think and hope that means they can be accepted booth at the same time. If this was already confirmed by FD and I missed it, sorry for wasting your time. :)
