    That's not what he's saying. He's basically saying, across the board that feature is more detrimental than the overall benefits it provide. It's a giant universe. Player encounters are minimal at best but if you play a certain style (like killing players) you are more likely to be abused by the usage of this feature even tough your game style is totaly within the boundaries of what is considered acceptable in terms of gameplay. Yeah it's pretty hilarious to see such terrible design decisions.

    I spent 90mil credits to ship a Cobra MKIII, MKIV, Vulture and Asp to Colonia which will take 61 hours. Sounds horrid but I made 60mil in exploration data on the trip there in my Corvette, and after setting up the ship transfer I took a bunch of pirate kill missions (no mode switching used) and made another 30mil. Now I just have to decide how to get my Anaconda and Python here. Combined cost is around 700mil to transfer. I'm thinking of buying an Asp in Colonia and flying it back to get the other ships one at a time. It's a shame that the module selection in the area is terrible.

    no wonder, that's the purpose of ceos giving speeches (or interviews). honestly, i really saw nothing new from several previous ones. that's probably a good thing in that it allows to gauge the cognitive dissonance and project it into the future. the game will continue as long as it sells enough, that's very simple. all major platforms have been reaped now, so continuity will have to come from added content (plus the shop). while elite has a very unique and loyal core fan base, my impression is that the game has big impact on new users but overall player retention is not very good. i'm hopeful but not very optimistic.

    Since I was out exploring when the mission initially started I tried to do it a few weeks back but it never appeared. It's great that it is fixed but think I will pass on it now especially with reduced payout and go off and do other things. Good luck tho to those of you who are going to do it. For me, the same effort and risk for less money does not appeal, sorry FD.

    +1 I had an idea in the past that there would be say 10-15 achievements in game that are major like "Triple Elite, Visit Sag A*" etc which are account specific. Do it once and it stays done even with reset save. For each of those milestones you can choose a single store item for free. The thought behind it being that everyone can have a few things for a few ships but obviously once those 10-15 run dry they'll still be getting or flying different ships and a fair few may start spending money. For those that buy things sure FDev loose a bit of cash but it may incentive the large group of people that are on the fence. And for the group that have self control and never buy cosmetic extras they get some freebies for doing the milestones and FD don't really loose any money as they'd not have spent anyway. Anyway, I do also like the idea of specific decals/paintjobs etc for in game events/milestones, I'd also love it if these were kept secret so we (as a community) just stumbled across them.

    Good point, not having used a console since the PS1 I always forget that they have subscription-based multiplayer these days. I wonder if console players can still play solo without the subscription, or if solo still technically counts as multiplayer because of the shared BGS etc. Can't speak for anybody else of course, but the only reason I haven't yet bought a second copy of the game is that I don't want to have to faff about with multiple accounts. I'd jump at the opportunity to buy actual CMDR slots which could be accessed from the main menu, especially since it would (presumably) mean being able to use the same cosmetic items across them.

    It's a fair assessment but knowing Fdev... they will do everything to make money on that feature. How much you bet they are going to sell us slots for 8.99$? I can already see a mile away from here, 9 months from now we will have to pay for every quality of life change they add to the game.

    I'm coming back home with...who knows how much exploration data. So my question is (And keep in mind I've unlocked every engineer so I already have max rep with all engineer factions) does anyone know of good systems to max rep with using the exploration data? Can be for any reason, missions, permits, etc.

    Well you could always try to jump, no one is forcing you to do the latter but if you die and come complain here don't expect everybody to give you a tissue. That's basically what I'm saying. It's not worth breaking your keyboard or losing your ship over a few cannister cans.

    Chiggy, we did already make you an honorary fuel rat right? :D Also Sapyx for next time (if there is one) I can assure you that the Fuel Rats have also done material rescues and will make the trip anywhere to do our best to save you. So glad Chiggy (the original materials saviour) could help though. A materials rescue earlier this year from yours truly with a 2nd rat en-route with mining lasers as a backup backup! :)

    Putting a temporary band-aid fix such as "blocking players" is only going to further fragment the community and make it worse. Yeah, let's get rid of players that are not space rainbow friendly because they hurt my feelings or don't play like I want to play the game even tough I joined OPEN and technically agreed to all consequences associated with it. Great way to promote some of your game features such as "PVP", "Bounty Hunting", "Piracy", "Trading" and pretty much every other social aspect that made open such a great place to go pew pew like the community goals! The blocking feature is terrible in terms of game design. As much as I agree with the fact that it's a great feature to instantly block hackers, cheaters and exploiters. It is abused by a horde of people against legitimate players that just enjoy playing a different playstyle. At this point, I don't even understand why we have solo. Furthermore,

    I've found quite a few. Honestly Between this account and my old one it's almost scary how much I have explored so maybe it's a little biased in my favor due to sheer number but they aren't that rare that you'll find more.

    Certain passenger missions add rep to Exploration rankings. If you have been hammering as much as you say you have it explains the discrepancy and is probably "as intended". Personally I'd still raise a bug report but that's because I have a personal agenda and believe the requirement for Elite Exploration is now too low. Submit a few screenshots of your statistics panel specifically the exploration and passengers section (right hand panel, scroll left 3? times and then down) and just query it. Can't really hurt.

    1/2 point for partial answer and I will forgive the mistake as it was out of the norm. Pretty much right, Sidewinder was meant to be Lamb (and a joke with Aries), Python is right, Vulture is right, AspX is right, Cobra uses US military designation of sorts being K = Refueling C = Cargo and the the R = Rat I'm thinking of turning it into a Fuel Rat affiliated vessel in case I get bored but it is honestly under consideration for fleet realignment at this time.
