    You're very lucky. Even if I had the money, if I stuck a 55 incher in my pokey little cottage it would take up a whole wall. I guess it's one of the reasons why I prefer VR to a conventional monitor.

    I think going forward Horizons will be the last season to ever be released, I doubt that we will ever see a season 3 and that all future content will be purchased. for example being able to purchase a planetary landing module and being able to purchase access to engineers for those who don't own horizons. while those who own horizons will purchase a atmosphere module so they can get access to planets with an atmosphere. only guessing.

    A Valid question since frontier have changed how the game development will proceed. the only info frontier has given is in the below quote from Zac in another thread. Frontier have already released a road map for 2018 and your current LEP obviously includes what's coming in 2018. Looking into what zak says it sounds like that those who only purchased Horizons will have to purchase premium content, im guessing that squadron mobile bases will be among the first premium content and access to thargoid space being another possible area where players will have to purchase access, I wouldn't be surprised if they add purchases for cmdr save slots. im guessing that premium content wont go down the route of pay to win as that would kill the games userbase. the worrying thing is that Zac only mentions the Beyond series updates which we know is basically the 2018 road map, what happens after that is anyone's guess.

    I was hoping waving a blaster in Sam's face would illicit more of a response. His reaction was reticence, not defiance. Maybe I could persuade him. "That dame did us both over good. She set you up as a patsy before she even picked your name out the phonebook. She'll be hundreds of light years away by now with the plans clutched in those dainty little fingers of hers. Would you care to tell me where she's heading?" Sam casually looked down at the blaster. "Go pull the trigger. It wouldn't be the worst thing that happened to me today."

    The film appears to be doing well in the UK. I guess it is getting a lot of good word-of-mouth here. I'm sure that it will do great when it's released for the home. I went out with a girl with a bad back. I always felt sorry for her when I saw her shifting uncomfortably in her cinema seat. Home viewing is better for long movies. It's such a shame it's going to lose something displayed on the little flat rectangle in folk's homes.

    I didn't know he'd picked up on it. For the record the post wasn't *just* about this, was more a 'most recent example'. But there is an element of ownership and entitlement where some people think if you aren't doing it their way, you're doing it wrong.

    I know a lot of FDevs keep their eye on this thread, I know that Elite has nothing to do with Star Wars, and I know that Frontier might need to pay a lot of money to Disney for this, but could we please have Jar Jar Binks as a killable character?

    You have to give them more than 11 minutes to engage their silicon brains and get the large keyboards out so they can troll the post ;)

    Huh. I remember being told about that by a security guard when I was at school in Middlesbrough about 18 years ago. I didn't believe him but I remember it being a really weird thing to have made up. What on Earth happened that day?

    I can't help but feel there's something in this article we can learn from. There’s always going to be people who ruin something for everyone, but it increasingly feels like pop culture fandom has gone rotten. An aggressive type of entitled fan has become dominant and vocal in the past few decades. The arrogant confidence of these fans is out of control with the type of behaviour they think they can get away with. Don't get me wrong, I've found the vast majority of ED fans to be pleasant, mature, fun and interesting people, many of whom over the last five years or so I've come to consider friends. But I do feel there's a minority, noise-making, entitled crowd that I feel makes the rest of us look bad. I was a little bit embarassed watching the twitch during the expo, where the planet coaster crowd were nice and polite and we were screaming over them 'when's ED' 'what's this rubbish?' etc etc

    A bit disappointed. I don't really have much interest in the PU. I know Chris Roberts has had some stick on this thread in the past about how cheesy his dialogue can be, but that's what he does. The reason I was following this thread was for SQ42. Elite is a game where you are a small cog in a big universe. I was looking for a space game where the storyline's that I'm some sort of a big hero, and that I alone can save humanity. I was looking for a different experience from one that I currently get from Elite. I'm going to keep an eye on this thread to see what their plans are eventually. It's fun to read just for the comedic aspect anyway

    If they did install a Large pad... We could have a Shipyard that lists Anacondas at 1,000c - but always has none in stock ;)

    I have the worst crush .. on Rey (so sue me. :p) Some of The Force Awakens was filmed local to me as it happens (Forest of Dean .. the most magical forest on the face of the planet according to Kathleen Kennedy) but when Rey closed her eyes, tuned into The Force and became a super-cool swordswoman .. wowee, I like. A lot. Cor. Also as it happens I didn't mind the high styling of the prequels as, people have said, it is for kids really. But as any Sci-Fantasy geek probably (and I'm one) looking forward to December 15 or soon after. I hope there's plenty of lightside/darkside psychobabble.

    It would spoil the joke..... We like having a useless outpost in the middle of nowhere! Building something else out there for people to visit might be interesting though.

    WRT "The Last Jedi" No-one (here or elsewhere) seems to have noticed that Force Awakens specifically refers to Luke as "the last Jedi" in the opening crawl and in dialogue. As for what has been speculated in this thread, don't trust trailers or speculation click-bait videos on Youtube.

    Oh if they did that! I'd be switching from my Imperial SLF to the Condor. I'd be waving my shut-up-and-take-my-money credits at the shop assistant. <grin>
