    Unfortunately, Open restricts how i want to play. To play in Open you need to be prepared for PvP at any moment. This means flying ship capable of taking part in PvP or at least evading it... and if you are just evading it, what is the point? Even out at Sag A* you might find someone just looking to blow you up. This is not the sort of gameplay i want from ED, so i don't feel like i'm missing much. If anything, i'm gaining from not flying in Open, not losing. The question from my side is, why do you care we are missing out in your eyes? To each their own.

    I don't recall FD every saying 100 programmers. I seem to recall them saying a year or so ago they had 100 people working on ED. Developing a game takes a lot more than just programmers. Some people, such as Customer Support will support the company as a whole. Some people will be dedicated to just ED, or at least for long durations. Some will work on ED as and when they are needed. For example, artists will likely get pulled between different projects as needed. Even if you put a gun to Braben's head, he probably could give you no more than a rough indication of how many people or programmers are working on ED at any point in time.

    See, there's some skill and fun involved in certain areas of exploring. In my case that is to traverse the very sparse regions as you have to manual plot things, use jumponium, etc.

    I like your style, anyways, that doesn't change significantly the estimate, I wasn't even considering unreported 5 body systems or the amount of systems registered outside of EDSM.

    Thargs require cool to cold environs. Flower Thargs and Retro Thargs may differ.

    Yes the "Git Gud" folks seem to be missing a trick it seems to me: I'd argue that ED is like Chess, in that it is good practice to help out others novice to the game to get the most from it, as gunning after absolute beginners for the sake of it is a hollow victory in which you learn little.

    You know mate, that is exactly my sentiment. I backed SC with much excitement on the back of ED, yet, now, with a heavy heart I fear Derek Smart was right and Chris Roberts bit off more than he could chew. I do not think SC will ever see the light of day, but it's nothing compared to the 120 I invesrted in PopSlate 2. Anyway, sorry...that's a bit of a tangent to the OP...carry on chaps.

    My bad, yes. I meant Mobius & Fozza are PvE areas that are essentially PvE with humans and NPCs

    EDSM reports that there are 17 mill systems discovered for now. If only 3 examples have been reported then there is a 1:5,6x10^6 chance of finding one. Elite has 400 billion systems so in the whole galaxy we should see round about 400 bill/5,6 mill=71 thousend aprox. I wouldn't say that's a few thousends but it's still a very small number relatively speaking.

    The best of the best anacondas get to 72 Ly but that's still a long way off from 81 so you are right in your assumption.

    No thanks. Independent factions are independent for a reason.

    Aren't the big three supposed to be good at combat or why are we even paying the premium for them?

    The problem is that some folks don't need to work 50 hours to get enough money to buy an ingame ship. About your spending limitations, I paid for this game, I paid for Horizons, I'm as entitled as you are to suggest about the games future and a secondary effect of this is the limitation of what you can and can't do.

    If you bought the game after it did then yes. Cough cough, solo mode.

    Hehe, I really wonder what you did in 40 hours because I doubt you went to many interesting places, did any interesting feats or simply be part of an expedition. Exploration is still a very popular part of the game, it just so happens that you didn't experience enough of it or its not your cup of tea, though it could and will be better.

    This is why I have a Tommy Tippee. Don't judge! 200T handed in. Would have been 300T but I signed up to the CG 8 seconds before handing in cargo. Apparently that's too fast.

    As far as I can tell, in pure gameplay terms, an occupied escape pod is just a re-skinned cargo canister. I'm pretty sure the last time I scooped up slaves, they were in a regular cargo canister. Why not re-skinned slave canisters to escape pods? Would look better.
