    Oh right? I didn't know that. Thanks.

    Yes, quite frankly this guy is clueless. He seems quite happy to repeat the same tasks, the exact same say, over & over again-& pretend its fun just because the payout was large. By making the same type of mission play out a little bit differently every time will make said missions feel far less repetitive and therefore less of a grind.....regardless of the payout. Tonight I got 1.4m credits for a surface scan mission which literally had no danger to it. To be honest, as soon as it was done I logged out.....as it just bored me to tears. That is *not* how I want this game to make me feel.

    Another perfect example tonight. Took a surface scan mission worth 1.4m credits......in the hope that the outpost in question would be brimming with hostile forces ready to leap on me as soon as I breached the trespass zone. However, there was no trespass zone, & only 2 defense turrets.....neither of which reacted to my presence at all.....even as I stole the data I'd come to collect. So just another boring milk run. Sad :(.

    All games are a grind. Only ones that aren't, are the weird visual novels featuring big eyed Japanese cartoons.

    Example one: What size laser should I bring? Any way to work out based on distro' size? Example two: How many limpets should I bring, assuming I have a size 1 collection & prospecting controller on board, plus 32t cargo?

    From the livestream: Yes they are playing 3.0, but its not finished 3.0, as 3.0 isn't ready to go live. So... 2.9.1..... :D They have disabled quantum travel. (Perhaps to stop people going where they don't want them to go). Disabled Mobiglass Only Daymar where they have "thrown down" some POIs. So basically, stuff they added just for the show.

    I remain convinced that Missions are the bread & butter of the game, so obviously it's the system I want to see improved the most. I must say that-glitches aside-the Mission system has undergone far greater improvements since launch than any other part of the game. Which is fantastic.

    Yep, not long ago I posted to the Suggestion Sub-forum that certain Factions should have natural in-system enemy/hostile factions-like Dictator vs Democrat, Anarchy vs Non-Anarchy Factions.....that kind of stuff. The idea would be that increasing your rep with one faction would always cause a similar decline in your reputation with that faction's natural enemy-with attacks on the latter faction just speeding up the rate of decline. These inter-faction rivalries could be further heightened by having various factions affiliated to Powers, so working for one power will off any factions that are affiliated to an enemy faction. Fingers crossed this is the kind of stuff we will see, post 2.4.

    Couldn't agree more. Funny how those who are quickest to complain about the game being a "GRIND" are also the same people who complain about any suggestion to actually make the game LESS of a grind. Then, it's suddenly all about "don't hurt my 'Credits per hour' rate, Man!!!"

    But it is completely lame if what you are wanting to do is take an explorer vessel out with a mining laser and a prospector to collect materials for jumponium on the way. Zero chance of getting enough tin by mining. The best ring I know of has 2% ring and has good material yields as it's metal rich. By my calculations, mining there I could possibly get 6 fragments of tin by prospecting and mining 100 roids. So it would cost me 100 limpets to get enough tin to build 8 new ones, and this is picking the best source I know of. I'm not impressed.

    Oh, & if you could possibly pop your head into this thread: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/372047-Request-Please-make-Surface-Scans-more-DANGEROUS I'd greatly appreciate that too :).

    You mean the in-box message? If so, then that'll be *fantastic* :). Believe me, Missions will be one of the only things I'll be testing, so I will definitely let you know the outcomes! Also, whilst you're here, I was hoping to "pick your brain"-if you don't mind? I was wondering if there was any plan to make some of the mission texts a bit less....generic? As an avid role-player, a more varied & contextualized description of a mission-by the mission giver-would really help to deepen my immersion. Also, are there any plans-post 2.4-to up the frequency and variety of mission wrinkles-especially for more high paying missions? Again, any answers you can provide......even if they come with the "No promises, no ETA's, no guarantees" caveat....would be greatly appreciated!

    When I see this, a spiteful part of me always wants to reply, "Nah, I'm going to fly as dangerously as I can now." Granted I often regret doing that, afterwards at the rebuy screen.

    Thanks for getting back to us Adam, always love getting feedback from you & Dale :). So does this mean the later chains might be entirely new mission types? Also, any chance you can put in an inbox message alert if you enter a system where a follow-on is pending? Thanks in advance :).

    I like the fact that I occasionally limp home from a CZ at about 8% hull and 50% modules, sometimes without even having claimed a single kill. I usually return with a grin on my face.

    I think you need a new hobby OP. However, have you tried a B rated combat tank? B rate everything and engineer everything with integrity improving mods. Its fun. My Beluga took about 30 dumbfires to the face when its shields dropped and i lost less than 50% hull and modules held up nicely. Finished him off, and shields regenerated and was able to continue in battle.

    FD have said no to more SLFs at once. But its fun if you multicrew with someone so you can have 2 SLFs out at once.

    Ok, whatever, just offering some good advice. You are free to ignore or listen as you will. Pretty certain i can imagine what the devs will say if they read this thread though. It will be the joke of the office for a few minutes until they get on with their jobs.

    So, gamescon today right? SC fans getting very excited about some images they have been shown. For example this. Now, i must admit, it looks very nice, but, can that be a real in-game shot with no photoshop on top? Are CIG misleading people?

    Yeah, I have a dedicated mining Python specifically for RES sites. I used to mine the open rings, but now it's RES every time. Even as tough as my Python is, Medium RES is as high as I can go it alone. Have to have a wingman for High, and more for Haz. Those yields are so damn tasty though, and with turrets on the Python, I get to pick up bounties on top of the cargo. RES mining is pure sweetness :)
