    Are we comparing hard drives? Your mom didn't complain about it last night.

    As you can see, there are a lot of approaches to this - further complicated by the fact that different ships work out differently. In some ships, shields have a very low multiplier, so even large shield generators only give you little protection. Other ships (prime example is the iCourier) take very well to shields. Same with armour and reinforcements - those add mass to the ship, and while you might be willing to weigh down a FGS with heavy armour and hull reinforcements, doing so on an iCourier would usually not be considered a good idea. In general, hull reinforcements give you a better mass to protection ratio than the actual armour - but they use up optional slots. There are even builds that forego shields completely and rely solely on armour - to create a very cold ship, which is hard to detect and lock onto, and can escape into silent running without the penalty of losing the shields.

    I got hyperdicted yesterday. How long was the scripted hyperdiction encounter scrapped? I can't remember...

    Howdy, Cmdrs, I'm having a frustrating problem after a small Windows update (which follows a larger update earlier in the week) last night. After starting up my computer this morning and logging into ED on my Rift, I found what looks like a drop in color depth, which is most apparent in the opening loading screen and in the in-game menu, but also seems to make the colors washed out in game. After searching the web, it looks like there's a well-known issue with Nvidia, but I'm using an AMD card (RX-480). I've tried reinstalling the video drivers, plugging and unplugging the HDMI cable, using a different HDMI port, messing with display properties, rebooting.... everything I can think of. Nothing is working. Interestingly, when I first get into the game and the cockpit first appears, for the briefest split-second everything appears normal. The view out the windshield shows a clear variation between the cloudy milky way and the blackness of deep space, but then something gets applied and then space goes...

    As a hypothetical question, would reapers and the various mass effect species be interesting to meet in a setting like this - yes they would. Are thargoids totally awesome and amazing and fill the wonder and personal connection that all the species that mass effect pull off? I know how I would answer that...

    It will be at WP7 IIRC. You are correct there was a goal and it reached 11 so the station should have jacuzzis and spacelegs and lavian brandy for all

    Nope . Despite the fact they revolve, the ELW bobble head always shows Australia when you exit a jump.

    It's amazing how principles can be thrown out of the window when someone wants something they're not entitled to. FD may have said they had made a mistake regarding the Cobra MkIV being an alpha/premium-beta/LEP/Horizons beta (etc.) pre-order exclusive but if they renege on that exclusivity by giving the ship to all, then how will it affect any other pre-order revenue if exclusives will eventually be given out regardless? Exclusive means exclusive which means, if you're not entitled to it, then you're not entitled to it. It doesn't get any simpler than that no matter how loud you can shout "I WANT ONE" while stamping your feet. :)

    I think it's a great idea and would would like to see some rpg aspects come to the game when spacelegs gets here proper. Some ideas for pilot skills and levels could be special "manuevers" such as temporarily adding a yaw or pitch boost for a limited time with a cooldown period. Other skills , probably the majority should be spacelegs gameplay centric, imo. Of course a wished for skill for an npc crew could be piloting the ship while your pc can relax or do something else. There's a whole wealth of possibilities and ideas that can be inspired from the rpg genre and paper rpg systems. If spacelegs actually gets some rpg aspects, I'd hope they make a differentiated class sytem so that a pc can't attempt to learn every skill and boon i.e. something like Pathfinder/D&D or rolemaster.

    And yet, it's a less powerful card than my 3GB 1060, which runs elite on ultra with nothing less than 40fps ever, even in intense combat situations, mining, and nebulae

    Ganking and clogging have both been around since the first playable version, and I saw both from the start of gamma at the latest. I've seen gankers clog when it went wrong for them pre-release so even trying to separate the two is silly. Blaming gankers/cloggers/both for what anyone else chooses to do on any side of the debate is pointless, you all need to chill out about other people either playing the video game or choosing not to. Its not a big deal either way. Its not a choice you have any input in so by choosing to make it your problem you just seem to be winding yourselves up.

    For a minute I thought chain hyperdictions were back ... Hyperdictions are known from 1-4 interceptors .

    It may be 4gb, but it's a pretty average card these days. It's generally less powerful than the nvidia GTX 970 and barely beats my 970m in my laptop. Adding more main memory to your PC won't make a single framerate of difference if your setup is GPU throttled, which it appears to be. The GTX 970 is now two generations old with much faster and more advanced cards available from Nvidia, I am sure the same applies to AMD cards. Your best option to improve performance is to upgrade the vid card, you will only get small performance icnreases using other available methods, overclocking etc.

    I couldn't care less about usefulness, subjective fun is the only thing that matters. Anything else misses the point of video games.

    I know right? Its if Ci!G has TWO main departments running completely unrelated to each other. One is attempting to create the game that Cash Roberts promised all those years ago the other is focusing on thinking up new stuff regardless if the underlying or existing game can even support it. Kind of like a run-away dream that is living its own life by now and cannot be reigned in anymore. Joking of course. These new things are thought of by actual humans who draw a pay-check handed out by CRoberts who clearly has to be in the loop for this to happen. Watching him green-lighting such ridiculous things over all the problems he already has might be a thing of necessity in order to keep things running but that doesnt make it any less of a scam then it already is. I ve read with great interest over all these pages how the rest of you think, some select few share my opinion. Others laugh deeming it ridiculous and mot reserve judgement instead thinking its stupidity or incompetence. I have thought about that...

    It's part of the Distant World 2 expedition which will reach the core in a few weeks at which point the station will be there. Then there will be another CG to equip it.
