    Agreed. It isn't going to be easy for FDev though.

    First off, not until you are at insanely late-game content like tracking down the ruins of ancient extinct alien civilizations so you can use weapons based on their technology to fight other not-so-extinct aliens. I put fifty or a hundred hours into this game without using ANY metagame spoilers at all and did just fine. I've put less time into AAA titles that I've paid more for. That said, it's like FDev is designing a game that appeals to their most dedicated community members who enjoy creating the hubs of information sharing so that the community can work together for everyone's benefit or something crazy like that... Do you realize how insanely awesome a crowd-sourced market locator that autoupdates based on a third party tool is? I used to be ambivalent about the third party tools, but after some thought, they are part of what makes Elite, and the Elite Community so flipping DANGEROUS!

    The problem I have with squadrons is that is it not new interesting game play, but instead is new infrastructure like so many of the other infrastructure features which have been added which we still question to this day. I'm doubtful that the new forms of identification and communication offered in squadrons is going to enable new game play when commanders have already been using tried and tested external forms of identification and communication such as Discord for a while now. I'm hoping that Frontier dropped carriers and picked up the new mining and exploration features because they finally realized that they have to deliver new playable features instead of just new infrastructure!

    FYI I solved this. If you enter the 'delivery depot' screen at the receiving port it gives you 2 graphs. The still to collect graph, and the delivered graph. The still to collect graph has the collection station labelled on it. Stupid cos you'd never use this screen with no cargo on. Info needs to be on the transactions tab really.

    What you are talking about is less about group gameplay and more about 4X gameplay - the latter is a toxic environment for mixed environment gameplay. Group gameplay is already facilitated through wing missions and to a degree PP. Squadrons themselves is essentially just a refinement of that, especially if members of the same squadron support a specific PP faction. At no point should any individual or group, whether via squadrons or otherwise, have any direct control or more influence over the BGS than is currently permitted. Leave player driven expansion mechanics to PP which should be limited to systems which have already been populated by the BGS. All population expansions should remain firmly in the hands of the BGS, and PP should have minimal to no effect over that IMO.

    A new rare commodity perhaps? On a side note, this CG is quite lucrative. I made 40 mil last night doing the Herculean one.

    And now you made me think of some older games. But I'm sure a learning AI will be held up high on a pedestal as groundbreaking. 1997 seems pretty far away, if you ask me :P

    IMO Factabulous is joking, I doubt Q4 will change anything in the way the content is found (narrative of?) in the game. But we're all waiting for it an all regards anyway...

    Before this one, the last time I kickstarted a game was in 2012. That year, I did Elite Dangerous, Kingdom Come: Deliverance, Shroud of the Avatar, and Star Citizen. So I had a 75% success rate and I have been happy with those three games that have released,( Well, Shroud is about to release). So I am satisfied with my investments. I learned two things in the process. One is that you are not buying a game, you are funding a game development and as such, you should only put in money you can afford to lose because it is far from a sure thing. Two, at least for me, is don't waste you money on alpha and beta access levels. The only alpha/beta that was any good was Elite: Dangerous. KCD put out a Beta pretty early on and did a few patches and that was it. Everyone played that for 5 years with no further changes. Shroud of the Avatar is pretty good now but the first few years were buggy and boring and empty. I wont even talk about the continuing history of the Star Citizen Alpha. So while I did invest in the...

    Disagree that reputation means nothing. Half the arguments here are about complaints that the mission boards aren't giving better paying missions, yet if you get fully allied with the factions, better missions are offered are they not? Of course some will still complain that they aren't getting perfect mission boards without flipping but I would suggest they would complain even if they did get the missions they wanted.

    As i currently log in and play the game and like exploring I would say I count. And personally no I don't think anyone of us should have the final say. It isn't their game or my game, it is FDevs game.

    No you are reading that into it. I am saying reputation has no meaning, other than pay, but minor factions don't know you and don't give you missions tied to your preference and competence. It is RNG. Also rep is a progress bar, not something delicately coded.

    Well yeah... But those pilots are not to blame either, right? The Thargoids are hostile. Sometimes. Like us. But then again, Ive had many encounters with them without a single proton has been fired... I crave for INRA blood!

    Hutton Orbital Radio with music 24 hours a day, with a lively sprinkling of Hutton Orbital News, the Galnet News digest, parodies and Elite adverts. Can even find it on the TuneIn app on the ps4 ;-)
