    Those examples aren't even close to what I asked for. That's you drawing a false equivalence. I asked for something very specific.

    I started writing computer games on a shared mainframe terminal, then a PDP-80. The C-64 was wonderful in the day. That's when coding was simple enough to be printed in glossy magazines. Now, it takes teams that rival the teams I was on in military aerospace. This changes the balance of responsibility to senior managers. Yes, the game industry is large. But, Elite is a unique game, with a playerbase that is skewed older, and geekier than the usual AAA game. Some of us actually *could* do better than the team has. Look at the third party devs. And a player base that paid in advance for a promise.

    How things work on the Frontier Forums: Threads based on emotion are posted by an OP. ie: "I was destroyed and am upset. Here are my frustrations." We counter with game-proven facts and advice to help. "You need to improve your defenses. You can easily escape most situations by high-waking. Here's how to do it." OP gets more upset. "Don't tell me how to play" refuses to accept any outside help. All additional efforts to help complaining OP's improve their gaming experience fail, and they imply we have some sort of disorder, or are terrible humans. Thread degrades into a huge argument.

    I've brought it up, all along the way, as it happens. I regularly ask for people who object to name calling towards PvPers to stop, to at least recognize the insults coming from PvPers. To no avail. You just move on to other posts to avoid it, and now you expect someone to compile a list. I'll just lay out some of the buzz words for you to dismiss: Coward, Hiding, Cheater, Unskilled, Exploiter, Thin Skinned, Weak, ect. I don't want to come across as condoning throwing insults at PvPers. I just think this poor behavior does both ways, equally. If you call for one side to stop, try calling for it to stop in total.

    I can assure you it's 40 without the deluxe edition, because it is stated in the article that they have no knowledge of any special editions yet. Should I update that in the thread?

    Seems a recurring theme is highlighted here. Objective evidence is not on the same level as how people "feel" about an issue. Evidence is a much, much higher standard. I think that false equivalence comes up far too often.

    Actually fairly quick to get CM. Just go to outbreak system (with anarchy as best). Look for "Convoy" signal which will show up within 1000LS around planets. Drop in and kill the type 9's. Often drop 1 or 2 CM. Then relog and kill respawned type 9,s. 4-6 usually spawn.

    Yep, I just cruise around the general area of the anomalies and wait for the crystals or cobble to spawn. Shoot them and they pop out goodies. Open your cargo scoop and scoop 'em up just like you would in space with your ship in a USS.

    Apart from any known bugs, IMHO the severely cluttered UI design for the Traders makes it very easy to overlook one. - Services : none Systems clutter up everything to no purpose and can't be disabled - zoom level and System density have a very distinct "cover-up" effect on any displayed Trader location - System names remain shown for all Systems, even uninhabited cones, even further cluttering the UI upto being literally unusable to locate the desired Target - actual Target candidates have no visuals to highlight them amongst and make them stand out against the clutter Can you spot it? No, you can't. There is an Encoded Materials Trader System though in this shot. It's merely 10LY from the centered map location... yet, it is 100% invisible due to the UI clutter displaying everything not useful instead of showing the Target.

    Why does my Hauler say 28.0/105 tonnes? is that because if I completely filled all available modules with highest mass it might be 105t or something ? It can't be fuel as the tank is only 2t :)

    Really? 4M for a 59M kill? Well that's horse $#!^. That's being forced to forfeit roughly 93% (?) of the income of that kill. That extra 55M is essentially a buy back for a 1B credit combat-fit Cutter. Cripes sakes, that's higher extortion than Big Oil and almost as bad as the material brokers. That ticks me off too. I want the whole enchilada with hot sauce, not a tortilla chip and ketchup. Rooks o7
