    End of the day...NMS and ED and SC and other games such as DU are all trying to develop the same sort of game with a similar but not identical list of features. It won't be good to have one win...because the genre also needs credible competition. But the big difference looks like its going to be graphical style and feel more than the feature list.

    I've had the engineer invite but not brought the gold to unlock him yet (although it's on my 'To Do' list!), so thanks for the heads-up on the gravity. As for the specific problem you've encountered, it sounds like you're further along the 'gittin' gud' with FA Off road than I am, so kudos for that too!

    The blue circles are usually human debris or mining installation, the tiny blue points are what we look for. Sometimes the tiny blue points turn out to be nothing but rock, but if you have found a tiny blue point and have dropped down and see nothing it may simply be that you are a hundred metres away and they are hidden by rocks of even down a canyon, it's hard to zero in on the blue dot. When I have problems what I do to zero in is to change the radar setting, the tiny blue dot will get bigger and you can position yourself in the exact centre, that will usually get you within ten or fifteen metres of the object, whatever it is. Just don't forget to zoom your radar out after you finish. More than once I have taken off and started searching forgetting I had zoomed the radar in and had to turn around and go over the same ground just to be sure. Oh yes the crystals aren't scannable, they are collectible, shoot them and grab the ores they release. Personally I think there should be some sort of science we...

    I want missions that pay me for the time I put in them. Spending 40 minutes ferrying some "adventurer" around to 5 different systems 400LY away for 4 million credits is insulting. Carrying 20 economy passengers to a drop off point 10,000 LS away for 40,000 credits is equally insulting. I want to land on a moon and not see the same random pattern of rocks, boulders, and pebbles that I see on every single moon. I want to land on our Moon. I want engineering without RNG, or having to build up favor after every single "special" modification I make. Favor is favor....stop treating it like a currency.

    If you don't want to overclock at all, skip the K chips, and skip the Z boards in favour of cheaper models that don't offer overclocking. No point paying for an unlocked chip/chipset that you aren't going to push. That will also help in terms of saving some cash. As a rift owner, I agree with the Vive, in terms of tracking at the very least. Room scale with the Rift is a bit of a mission, with 3 cameras and 3 USB ports tied up, and all the cables running around the room... I don't play any room scale games at this stage, so not an issue for me, but I will be considering this heavily when it's time to upgrade. Having said that, I really do hope a viable tracking alternative is invented that doesn't need cameras or lighthouse tech. Z...

    You guys are right about the balancing. It was never my intention to come off as complaining I was just questioning it. I can understand everyone's argument and can agree.

    Depends on what you're looking for, but a goal is *always* a good idea. Even if it's "this is the next waypoint", because it's easy to go space mad.

    The New Mission Panel is a great addition, especially when you are trying to Ally and get Permits. Superb.

    My PS4 is hooked up to a 27" computer monitor, though it's a pretty cheap one that only does 1920x1080 with no HDR shenanigans. I sit pretty close to it, but I seem to be one of the lucky people that don't see many graphical problems with the newer ED patches.

    Can FDev add space legs to ED? Quite easily. In a sense, they've already it. Change the SRV model to a character and slow it down. You have space legs. The real challenge with space legs is providing the content to make it worthwhile. Being able to walk around is impressive enough to make it desireable and put it on the to-do list....but without something to do, it can only ever be far down the list. SC and CIG is discovering this for itself. Pilots meet mission givers in bars. ED uses a vid phone. SC pilots help stack cargo. ED does it behind the scenes with an automated cargo delivery setup. Still...space legs offers the chance for some unique gameplay. It will require cities and bases to be procedurally generated. Where worlds would be populated with plants and animals, cities and stations would be populated with different NPCs. Cities would allow for exploration to find unique one of a kind items from merchants and ne'er do wells. Space legs would allow for EVA...for walking around ships and...

    That's a fair point actually. We could bounty hunt with our ship out of system, while we do everything in an SLF. Would mean we wouldn't need multi crew either, if done like with the SRVs.

    Are you still dragging the passenger along? I hope so, because I find that thought to be hilarious.

    You may be onto something with the perspective thing. I did play quite close to a large HDTV and although I havenít had your issues specifically, the detail does seem to bed in on approach to planets more slowly nowadays. I took the PS4 upstairs and onto a smaller TV and it seemed sharper. Bothe these sets are nice but not flashy. Iím assuming that by now youíve stuck the PlayStation on the sitting room telly so you have some comparison? It makes sense that developers would target appearances for a mid range HDTV more than a monitor for a console. The key question for any survey would be: are the people getting the worst of the graphical issues playing on top-end TVs and monitors? And of course, what are they looking at, at Frontier HQ? Fingers crossed that your idea moves things forward a bit!
