    Oh, you missed the point - The green you mentioned in a hashtag, flooding the milky way - I don't see. Like I said when I replied to your screenshot - I see a neutron star and the rest looks fine. You're posting as if I agree'd with your screenshot as an example of how bad the game is. I wasn't. Because my screen isn't yours, and its not set up like yours. I could post your own screenshot back to your as a counter point to your own argument. Sucks for you tho, as I said I like how the light falls on things - you have a problem with the background. *shrug*

    The FSS - that thing you use, out of the cockpit, while parked by the star - gives you all the information the old ADS gave you, PLUS the information that the old DSS gave you, PLUS an indication of exactly which planets have POIs on them, AND what type they are. Yes, you have to play a minigame in order to unlock all that information, but since there is no failure mechanism to it, you could train a monkey to do it. That, my friend, is far more godly than the ADS ever was. As far as finding POIs go, I'd have preferred a 'hotspot' mechanism where you get an enhanced probability of finding a POI, but you have to actually find it for yourself. You know, do a bit of exploration.

    This is mostly a 'VR Problem,' so I am asking here. Previously, when I had a transaction pending in my Transaction tab.. something like 'Transport X Tons of Y to Station Z' I could click on the Transaction for the details. In that page there is an option to 'Open galaxy map' to plot a course for this mission. Lets assume I am taking cargo to Leonard Nemoy station in LHS 3006 system. If I opened the Galaxy Map through the detail of that transaction, the map would open with LHS 3006 selected. Now, it opens with my current system selected. This means I have to take off my HMD and actually type LHS 3006 into the search in my galaxy map. Previously, I didn't have to do this.

    It does in relation to how ED is displayed on the same screen. It's identical to how the acutal game looks (excluding compression). If the background image looks green-tinted on the screenshot, it will look green-tinted in the game. Which has absolutely no impact on the validity of the posted screenshot, since the colors are identical to how the game is displayed on your screen. Again, differences between monitors isn't the issue since taking a screenshot is not the same as taking a picture of your monitor. Case in point: if the milky way in the image appears green to you on the screenshot it will appear green to you in the game, since they are both displayed on the same device. This isn't solved by changing the color temperature either, since the tint is dependant on the local star.

    My 1yr old us obsessed with the x56.. every time he sees it out he races towards it and demands to be on my lap playing with all the switches on the throttle and pushing the joystick trying to copy me.. its co cute. Somehow i find it adorable when he emergency drops me out of supercruise. I showed him the boost button i mapped on the stick and he presses that impressed with himself. Amazing. Lately he seems to be staring at the game itself wondering what it is.. surprising since its just balls in space. Wifey i don't think knows what to make of it.. other games she sees whats going on and gets it, but a fly on the wall watching someone playing elite probably only sees a sequence of witchspace and glowing orange circles materialise.. having said.. ive been so impressed with elite since i've been able to put my name on things in the bubble im determined to teach her how to play over the holidays.

    Here's one: Have an FDev employee attempt to pirate a single NPC trader on stream. While it is doable - you need Ion Disruption mines, which are easy to get - it's on a scale from extremely punishing to excruciating pain. You have to hit an NPC's drives until they're at or near single-digit percentage and then hit them with a mine - without being caught in the blast radius, which reboots your drives. You then hit the drives and destroy them while the NPC is standing still. You get no points for doing it in Anarchy and you get negative points if you destroy the drives without the NPC being in a standstill due to the mines. If an FDev employee manages to do that without dying to police, in a low security system (4.5 minutes until police response), I will eat a sock.

    Performance has taken quite a hit on Xbox too. Fdev said the new lighting and all wouldn't have an effect on performance,......yeah right!

    I'm running on a gaming laptop, and the game has been stuttering quite a bit this evening ..... once I had to ctrl alt del to get control back, other times it's paused and then continued as normal ....... most recently, a whole set of about 40 geological features spread over two nearby planets disappeared from my contacts screen when I logged back in, then suddenly appeared ..... so I suspect the server issues have not yet settled down.

    167.6% total power use! Until you changed it, you had my 136.7% total power beat. Updated my build now that ADS is gone: (I see speed/jump is still too high on there, I only wish I was that fast!)

    I am just going to ask here to ask other VR players.. Is any of this needed just for signal source hunting? I don't get the new Exploration system.. and flat out can't use it. I'm sorry if that sounds stupid.. I tried.. I just hate it and can't make it work in VR. I want to skip it all together, but now I can't seem to find Signal Sources for Engineering. When I jump into a system, there are like 10 USS in my contacts.. but if none of them are what I am looking for (HGE for example) I'm just screwed. It doesn't seem to spawn more then what's in there initially so now I am stuck. I got the mode switch to work so I can do a basic 'honk' of the system. I have a key binding for 'open discovery' it does nothing. I opened the FSS.. and @#$ that.. I don't get this stupid thing and I don't want to map all new key binds for it.

    Best of luck with the install and remember, the higher value the ships at your disposal the more fun you are going to have. Lets hope the mining ship is among the listed so that you can alpha-test the tier-zero mining feature for CiG. Alternatively go for a grinding-run to earn enough credits to buy the mining ship. Please let us know if the fun you are having while doing so is on par with being better then already released AAA games. Best regards, holding my chair MTB Fritz

    OK, finally got everything working (thanks to several commanders across several posts...). A question for the Explorers amongst you.... IF the only change had been the DSS/Honk part and not the Probe Launching, what would your opinion have been? I say this because I have just dropped into a system with an ELW and 2 Water Worlds. I played the DSS/Honk game, reolved the Blue Blobs and zoomed in -- Hey presto ! I have effectively DSS's and first discovered them. But, these planets were 42 000 LS away (is there a range limit ?)

    Glad some people are enjoying this. I turned on the game. Got bored out my skull after 15 minutes and then logged out again. Went back to ESO. Sorry, there's just nothing to apart from flying around looking at small variations of the same thing..the new mechanics are just convoluted but still uninteresting. You guys enjoy though. I'll wait another 6 months to see if the game isn't a snoozefest yet.

    He estado mirando el menu de la flota y no he visto ningún chat para hablar entre nosotros. Hay alguno o hay que usar el chat de siempre?
