    Wrong. Gravity bends space time, not the matter in it. Let me translate for the folks what you just said. You said planets, which are "matter", and then you said, the "matter" gets bent by space time into a sphere. Exactly what shape is that flat planet again, which gets bent into a sphere? Gravitational lensing is an aboration, a convex effect caused by the bending of space time between the distant observer and the distant black hole. Look at any convex 35mm camera lens and you will see the convex effect.

    Just a guess, the center of gravity pulls equally on all objects on the surface of a rotating sphere? Hell, I don't know. I'm just a dumb physicist. Be well.

    Hello CMDR's This is an old thread and an old question, which as somewhat been answered by Frontier and David. Both stated they envisioned the future possibility. A replacement for DX, i.e. Vulcan would make this possible for PC. PS4 is a Sony Proprietary Port of Elite in Linux. So, the game already exists for a closed distro of Linux and apparently it works, i.e. the release of Elite for PS4. Give it up on Wine folks. There is no way in hell M$ will let it run and if it does, it's going to be full of bugs, unsupported and your experience will be a difficult one. Believe me when I say I would love a linux version of Elite NOW more than ever, as at some point, the DX requirements of Elite might just go to v12, (or Windows 10) and if that happens, I'm out.

    yup, they are better than us and level up faster. I am guessing that it is so we do not have to wait for a year for them to be elite. Also because if they die (i have killed lots) then you have to start all over again. Just wait till you go into another ship with no fighter bay and you crew still get paid! sitting in a bar in a station can make them millions!

    I have a rift and i know people with a vive. The rift is easyest to get readable text with HMD set to 1.25 and higher. The vive can be the same but they have to work harder to get it there. Long range objects are not good, eg CZ fights. And disappointing..... But when you are in REZ and close! Or just in your asp! Or coming in on a planet! OH MY!!!!!! I am in love with elite all over again! I did a lot of trying before i brought so if you could do Heavys kind offer or someone else with elite then i would. I had a GTX960 but upgraded to a 1080 just to play in VR. i think of my old flat screen ( 720p 42") as high res elite and my rift as 3D elite, so it is a win-win mate! good luck!

    We also need to say farewell the the "beta backer gift" of the "Combat Tutorial Demo", which is also 32Bit. I thought this was a very cool tool for those first coming into the game, and some of it I believe has been incorporated into the main menu under "Training". Just a casualty of technology moving forward, and if Frontier is reaching out to those who are affected by the demise of 32Bit, I would point out it was a "backer gift", and those who were gifted are also affected. Be well.

    Now, you have the opportunity to move to a real computer, the Commodore 64. "Spoiler" Upgrades are cheap, and I think Elite will still run. Of course, you could wait for the Commodore 128, but the upgrades are not ready yet. Be well.

    Potagos Port in Wangal also selling: Titanium - 786 Cr Semiconductors - 659 Cr Trading here will also benefit a player run Imperial Faction, the Angeli Imperial Enterprises. Two birds, one stone. We can also offer security for traders.

    Dinosaurs in Elite, Really? I could see some earth like worlds in ED with some of this present, as a world ages and forms complicated life, some having evolved to this point. With aliens on the way and a big battle planned, who has time to pick a fight with lifeforms on other worlds. I guess this is planned after we whoop some alien butt, provided we win. Be well.

    That is okay. I wanted to rep some more people tonight but that particular thread is locked. One of the guys said ED is different from other games. How true. Hope they never put an end in it.
    I replay stacker and borderlands over and over. Or I did before Elite. I want to say things, but probably better to go grind, whinge complain ......... Oh wait a minute. The other team does that.
