    I realise that could explain it, theoretically, but it'd be absolutely bonkers in practice. You'd have to standardise the size of a shipping container so it'd be big enough to hold at least 1 tonne of the lightest possible material and then just put smaller quantities of heavier items inside the same type of container. You'd end up with shipping containers the size of a tower-block so they could accept 1t of, say, bubble-wrap and some of them would be almost completely empty inside except for a pallet with a small block of Uranium on it. Still, I guess that might explain why the cargo capacity of ships is so tiny, if they're all designed to hold these gigantic fixed-weight containers.

    I'm still waiting to read your proposal. I'm not interested in playing games with you. You understand that something is a potentially contentious issue, you think it's worrying, any you pursue is doggedly. That's not a cultural thing, that's just being crass.

    Girls take all the compliments you can while you are young. When that 30 number hits your birthday the compliments get fewer and fewer. There might be a time in the future when you may actually miss the attention. No matter how annoying the compliments seem now. It's only human nature to want to be liked, shall we say. I say this a lot in forums. If you post your image online and get a torrent of abuse or unwanted attention then that is on you. If a woman speaks on the mic in games like CSGO then yeah you are going to get unwanted attention and verbal abuse. You can either cry about it or just own it by ignoring it. Testosterone is a powerful hormone. It gives men the edge physically over women. Muscle mass, bone density and sheer drive to do things. Don't link Facebook to Steam ladies. Come on and use a fake avatar. It's like crossing the road. Be aware there are some dangers but if you have some fore-sight and planning, you can look left and right and cross the hazards safely. All while having fun.

    At one stage all the planets were just spherical meshes wrapped in a 2D bitmap to make them look good. Then we got horizons, that didn't happen overnight, I am sure they are working on the tech for atmospherics even as they do all the other stuff we so eagerly want, that sort of thing doesn't simply happen from one patch to the next and I expect a big planetary upgrade when that happens.

    Maybe if you were max rank with a particular PP faction, you could engage in an espionage mission to temporarily gain the ability to buy an enemy's powerplay module. E.g. if you were pledged to Li Yong Rui and reached rank 5, there might be a mission to smuggle plans for Prismatic Shields out of one of the Space Princess' stations. You'd get attacked by various craft as you tried to escape with the plans, and maybe there'd be vengeful NPCs for a week or two. The ability to buy the module might last a few hours, or a day, or whatever. During that time you could fill your boots with whatever you needed.

    Someone cheating in a video game and getting shamed by the community of that game can reasonably be compared to a mob hunting down a person, using rope to string them from a tree, and hanging them from said tree until death? Perhaps this is a cultural issue. As an American, it's a particularly disturbing train of thought to hear so casually promoted. Oh by the way, I'll have to take a rain check on that sparring session. My PC is down right now. Do you play on XBOX? We could play there!

    The design intent presents as requiring people to upgrade each tier to completion, regardless of when the next tier is unlocked. It's asinine to offer the next tier, but require additional rolls within those tiers to compensate for the missed rolls. In short; optimal use of materials, to minimise expensive grade 4-5, is to completely max out every single tier and ignore the ability to progress to the next tier until this is done. It's institutionalised waste (time, materials) but this is what I've come to expect from Frontier. They honestly need a refresh of the player base to shift perspectives; the stale and odious approach has impacted my friends list markedly. Very few now play. Fewer still, are motivated to play with any regularity. And these were people who championed elite, and helped encourage others. Perhaps that is the intended outcome of the mechanics; to make it intolerable enough that we simply stop. --

    That's true, just because I enjoy landing and driving around on planets doesn't mean everyone should like it or be forced to do it. There should be mission rewards, although I would suggest just for high grade materials that can then be downgraded using the mat trader to get lower grade materials, there's no real need to have every type of mat available from missions, just a few would do.

    I am encountering this intermittently as well. i have replicated the issue and generated a netlog file, i can send it in if it helps, but not sure where to send it to. Is there a bug report email or would I need to upload the file and link it manually?

    Isn't that what they call "busywork". Seeing it listed like that, just makes it more ridiculous in my mind and does nothing to encourage me to do any.

    why am i not suprised? using just a little edgy translation, is it meant to be? appauling, to exploit the oppertunity, in suffering. why should people expect different, of (presumably) hudsons?

    The transactional nature of the BGS is no secret to anyone who has tried for about 5 mins to get information, or found the BGS subforum here. I would say by now, lack of knowledge of 1-click a BGS player only has him- or herself to blame for, whereas the players and player groups who figured all of this out have shared this around with interested parties. This knowledge has helped us through random traffic peaks, like sudden popular skimmer massacre missions and their disastrous effects. (Not to mention the joy of figuring out the mechanics. I see some request for clear instructions/manual. You miss the best part then! And even when you know the mechanics themselves, there is so much more depth to follow...) The bit that is the biggest protection against random money grinders and mercenaries is exactly what you are objecting against. Whereas the best part is that knowledge and skill wins out over straight value grinding, and how to best apply your understanding of a set of basic rules that interplay in...

    I would say that's a reasonable analogy, can you not see that?. I'd also say you are stepping beyond the bounds of reasonable enquiry to ask such a question here.

    Basically the third island as some are calling it meaning the islands won't unlock in the order they are in. I have a suspicion that Isla Sorna will be last, at least in the Las Cinco Muertes chain. Nublar is the real last island and it's where the big secret is that I am sure people will have ruined for them just 3-4 days after the game is released by YouTube video. I was reading over the JWE Reddit page and found it.

    Yes. Rlsg said the common practice of putting Combat Loggers on 'Kill on Sight' lists and shaming them among other PvPers was a 'lynch mob mentality.' Considering Rlsg's poor thinking in other areas, I'm challenging them on the use of that phrase. A real lynch mob is a pretty horrible thing and hardly an appropriate description for the behaviors I described above. And to keep on topic to this thread - gross characterizations like Rlsg's don't help PvP's popularity.

    you need to be in a high populace system with plenty of federation or imperial faction reps. like hundreds of thousands of people. sol is a good example it has over a million population. can't say there's a magic low end number but less than 100k doesn't work from my experience.

    Sounds like a FIRE GROUP issue. Shouldn't be a problem setting them up. Mining Laser in one group, Pulse lasers in the other. Gets real tricky when you have something like an AspX with 4 small Turreted Multi-cannons and 2 medium MC's and I wanted the starboard Medium in the same group as the two port smalls and vise versa. Also, as noted, Gimbled and turreted weapons must "see" the target to fire. If you haven't done this, >>>> << you might want to..
