    :D Ok, good list, but I'm going to play Devil's advocate here: VPC hotas. We don't know how good or bad it is, since no-one has the throttle yet. I read very good things about the stick and don't have any reason to doubt the throttle will be just as well received, but that's not the same as actually knowing it's the best thing out there. Thrustmaster Warthog. It has issues. The throttle is based on a real unit, which is great for brrrrt immersion, but not so good for ergonomics. I know I don't like the button arrangement. I suspect I'm not alone. The main issues are the goofy left throttle body side switch, the awkward, difficult to reach at low rev setting flap switches and the APU start switch that gets obscured at medium throttle. The warner silence and autopilot engage buttons are missed opportunities, offering just a single press option. All perfectly acceptable for flying a virtual A-10, but not so great for other virtual aircraft, where the controller is hobbled for no good reason. I remember...

    West Veil Nebula is only about 5k LY away from the bubble (in fact I think its closer). Sometimes its called the Cotton Candy Nebula because of the amazing colors that can be found there. If youre in it for the money, Go NW of West Veil Nebula about 3k LY until you find Aucofs Sector: its not uncommon by any means to find systems with 3-5+ ammonia/earth/waters.

    Thank you for this. IF I could have chose a background that let me start with a pre-nerf Python, I would play daily. I love the ship: It could fight. It could haul. It could explore. You do everything with a single ship, sort of like Han Solo and the Millennium Falcon. No grinding. Just go where you want to go and do what you want to do, without worrying about cr/hr and how long it would take you to earn that freedom. But no. I had to start with a Sidewinder. I get the reasoning. Build your legacy, and by the time you GET the big ship, you have a story to go with it. Except...you dont. Have a story. Because the game world and the factions and people in it, do not remember or react to a single thing you do. Ever. Leave a CZ, come back and choose the other side? Sure, no problem. Take smuggling jobs and sell the stuff somewhere else because you found a more lucrative job there instead? Sure, go ahead. No one will care, in the long run, and certainly no one will ever react.

    I have a GTX 660 set up with 3 monitors. In Windows (right now) all three monitors display the Windows Desktop and this forum. Once I start the game only the center monitor is being used. If you have an NVidia graphics card, how do you get the game to span all three monitors? I was hoping to see the center console in the middle, the Comms panel on the left and the System panel on the right, so basically the entire cockpit is displayed. Is this how yours is working? If so, how did you get it to work? Thanks! Jibs

    It can't? Why not? I've never had that issue before. I also don't see how the T-10 wouldn't also have the exact same problem but worse if that's the case as they boss have roughly the same energy drain per second while running similar load outs but the Conda gets a better distributor. On top of that the weapons convergence of the T-10 is abysmal even with gimballs and in order to get all of the weapons firing on a single target its more reliable to use Turrets for some of the hardpoints. The short version being that while the Type 10 is tankier than the Conda its effective DPS is pretty meh in comparison from reduced time on target and heavier reliance on gimball/turrets. which, to be fair can still easily give any of the big 3 a bad time, but I'm not really seeing how the Conda doesn't hold a candle to it.

    Probably my own mistake with this one. I took elite as a "hobby" rather than just a video game. When frontier obviously think no better of their creation. Sucks but hey its their game. Having said, this has been true ever since i started playing. The simulator sandbox elements of elite are best and unique. The "video game" aspects of elite are incredibly bad. To add a weekend event to cheapen it tops it off as another one of these. Trying to not be mad at how stupid it is, the game itself just isn't there yet to become a game. Every single player "puts up" with something on the gamer gamey parts of elite. It doesn't make sense to go there with elite in the condition that it is. No sense at all.

    Warframe's content is also generally active, too. The only thing I can think of that's essentially "wait for the game to play itself" is the manufacturing, and you can be doing other stuff while that runs.

    So, doing a wing assassination mission, terrorist leader, usual thing. This is far from my first rodeo, so I'm pretty familiar with how these missions work and the usual triggers for failure. Take the mission around 23:00. Go to system, find target in Supercruise in the target system between the time 23:50 and 01:20. Time is currently 00:12, so well within the location timeframe. Interdict a wingman of my target (this is a pretty normal tactic too; the wingmates go down easy so gives me a head start), rest of the wingmates jump in including the lead. I'm by no means the best fighter, so my usual tactic is take out some of the weak ships, wait for cops to arrive and then pound down the main target together with the cops. All is going well, about a dozen cops arrive and we're going to work. Suddenly, in the middle of all the gunfire, Mission Failed. Err... what? Accompanying message with the failure isn't much use either. Sadly, shadowplay wasn't running so didn't get any video.

    I stopped playing a good few months ago...after a previous hiatus of several months. The realisation hit me at one point that I was becoming so separated from the influx of player demographic in what I expected, wished and required from E-D and to where FDev were driving it through design just wasn't worth my expenditure of time and support. It's not a bad thing per se...I'm sure FDev are happy to tag the game with the 'MMO' suffix and push features concurrent with that design philosophy to attract a fresh outlook from new players. But not for me....I guess I'm still waiting for that game I thought I was emotionally buying into 3 years and 5,500 hours ago. :)
