    Can't take seriously cos I don't believe you have properly considered how many variables and possible outcomes would need to be set to put a bot to work autonomously in space, even without other ships, stations, rotating mailslots, planetary approaches, random nodes, interdictions and no API. I could write a mobile game from scratch more easily. Ask FD how much code the limpets needed, then triple that. A wow miner can be done with just scripts (and still isn't exactly easy). Elite is a whole different ball game.

    It brings a problem of existence. If you can harvest parts from my living but dead in space ship, or even my dead body, when you leave, or when I rebuy, how come i still have them? As for pvp having drops, that would be a disaster... "hey man let's go get x ship each which drops these, then I can kill you, you can kill me until we've spent as much as we can bear in rebuys to get the stuff we want." Keep the ideas coming though! :)

    If the ship had a cargo rack, let alone cargo, it wasn't a ship dedicated and engineered for pvp.

    I don't find it easy to make money, despite knowing three methods of making 20m+ per hour. I do concede though that it is much easier now than ever before.

    Indeed, it's a perfect example of people citing reasons that things have gone wrong elsewhere as reasons why they would go wrong in Elite, without thinking about it. Bots in Elite is impossible, period. I know how WoW mining bot AI is programmed, I even dabbled in trading bots (bitcoin), it's not easy at all. For every variable you have to have the bot make an informed decision. WoW's world is flat (basically) and nodes are always in the same place. That makes it EASY, yet still it's a great challenge making a reliable bot. Elite's universe has 6 degrees of freedom and I don't think nodes are always in the same place, are they? If they are, that would make it significantly easier, however, we're talking undocking, leaving stations, not hitting other ships, staying under 100kps, making sure the system to jump to is visible before attempting to jump, anticipating the random place you drop out next to a star and steering the correct direction, targeting a body, avoiding random interdictions, ALL UNATTENDED...

    Using your new found luxury trading barge on an efficient trade run, you'll soon make the credits to outfit it with 8A powerplant and thrusters, you'll want to G5 dirty drive the thrusters, being honest with you seeing as you have 8a prismatics to go on it and those modded boosters its going to be so shieldy you don't need the bulkheads doing and it is awesome. I'm more of a fighter pilot than a starship captain, the cutter always feels like its the size of star trek voyager and doesnt suit my play style since you've got the ranks sorted, why not try a clipper, whcih is my favourite ship in the game, it will counter most of the things you didint like about the cutter..

    Eh? What gave you two the idea I support this!?! You're preaching to the choir, friends, knowing WHY it is filtered is not the same as saying it SHOULD be filtered. BUT... How would you feel if a significant number of ships starting being named after particularly disgusting slang and swearing, would you not get tired of seeing it? I would. So where do you draw the line? I'd prefer that the 'bad' stuff is censored, and I could let a few of the toilet humour ones go, but everyone's line is different, mine might be reasonable in your view, but in another's view, I might be tremendously liberal, or draconian, others might think that some people are actually going to burn in hell for that ship name. Some even think that they will burn in hell just for allowing it on their computer screen! When natural selection stops and we have to start saying everyone is equal, then you have to TREAT people like they are equal. Do I like it? No. Do I think there are many people truly 'equal' to me? No (there are many that...

    I support the OP's notion of an imperial medium ship along the lines gutamaya would go to make a counter to the fer de lance or fed gun ship, see my sig for a link to a previous proposal I made about reworking the clipper model into such a craft.

    I've been thinking about this, and I think I understand it now... I suspect they have modelled the SRV with straight cut rather than helical gears and the sound department have engineered in a transmission whine to faithfully represent that. You can hear an example of straight gear transmission whine in the following youtube video of a guy running a scooby imprezza wrx with a straight cut gearbox fitted to it:<em> So... ...We could make it an engineer's upgrade to SRV Helical gears G1,2&3 where G1 would simply introduce the helical gears and the higher grades of mod would also change the ratios, altering acceleration vs top speed. So for example G1 would mean the quieter helical gears no change in ratios same top speed (30m/s) & acceleration, whereas G2 could be for example geared to 45m/s 2/3rds of the acceleration and G3 could be the quieter helical gears and 60 m/s but 1/2 acceleration.

    Like I say, it will self adjust. But yes, you're right, my current best money maker makes me between 15m and 25m an hour. Tungsten I can gather (because I'm bad at it, others will be much faster) at a rate of about 9 pieces an hour if I'm lucky (3 drops) from palnetary prospecting of nodes, rather than volcanism. Others who are adept at farming volcanism and hulks could probably make a good deal more, let's say 20 per hour. Average those out, 20m credits per hour vs 20 pieces per hour and it works out 1m each. I am a spender, despite playing for years, I never really have focused on credit gathering, I build ships, try them out, then strip and sell them a couple of hours later, I do donations almost whenever I see them. I just finished my PVP FAS, which took me from 200m back down to 50 again, so if Tungsten was to cost 1m each I would carry on farming it, simply cos I don't have that kind of money for mats. The same thingn from my side... I can gather 20 CIF and 20 MEF in two hours with a little...

    I'd pay up to 50 grand a piece, and that's what I'd expect to get for it as a seller. Why though Ziggy? In the WoW auction house, naturally, the prices are dictated by supply and demand (and to a degree time, but Elite does not have timed events, dailies, weeklies, etc, so that would not be a factor), they can fluctuate WILDLY. You can pay 10g a piece of iron one week and 100 the next. Certainly it will take the community time to 'feel out' the appropriate credits/effort ratio, cos if they're too expensive, people go back to farming, so it's a self adjusting mechanism, usually. There are so many things in Elite that are so different from other MMOs (like I mentioned above, just not having dailies or weekly raids is already in Elite's favour, it won't create glut times at the auction house). Of all the games that could implement trading, but don't because of irrational fears, Elite is the one that would suffer the absolute least. THat's why I won't stop campaigning for auction houses and guilds. Take...

    Well said, and also, every iteration of anything is better (assuming competent minds on the task), Elite could have a few additional tweaks to minimise the negatives. It's very defeatist to say it caused problems for other games, so it will for Elite, without even trying.

    Bots in Elite? I'd like to see them try to program a bot to fly a ship and use the cargo scoop unattended, or prospect on a planet. :) Sometimes in WoW, with only 2 degrees of freedom, and one definition of 'up', you still see bots getting terribly confused, imagine in Elite. No way.

    Yeh. Cos another thing that needs to be considered is a formula to work out how many people would buy gold. It's not a high profit industry, it's a volume industry, they wouldn't come if there weren't enough customers, and I wonder if there are. The official figures for 'general' MMO gold buyers are at about 20% (according to eurogamer), but I think that number would be less in Elite, simply due to the demographic so let's go 12%. Of those 12%, let's say half will be habitual high buyers and others occasional, so you've got 6% of the community as the target audience for gold sellers. If there are only 200k active players or less, I don't think the gold sellers would come in any significant number, certainly the Chinese wouldn't bother, it would be the eastern europeans and the russians. More evidence that it won't ruin the game.
