    Thank you Dominic for taking the time to post on the forums in response to these issues that players are experiencing. It's very much appreciated by the ED community and great to see the devs responding in this way!

    Which is silly, it can take longer than that just to get your hotas bindings sorted out...

    Given that ED is (allegedly) a finished and complete game (its not in Alpha like SC), then development would be expected to include additional game elements (aka Carriers / Squadrons in this instance). Conversely, given that ED is really still in Alpha and is just a collection of placeholders (allegedly :p), then development would be expected to include core game mechanic improvements. My personal opinion after playing ED for two years (several thousand hours), is that it's still in Alpha and it's pretending to be more than it really is. Don't get me wrong, I've loved ED with much passion. But my patience with fdev has all but run out. I bought the game believing that I was buying a finished game (2.0). What I got was a bunch of barely functional placeholders like mining. It sure wasn't worth the 40 spent on it from a quality perspective (inch deep etc). That said, I've had thousands of hours playing ED and you could argue that I've had my 40s worth. It's been with a mixture of enjoyment and pleasure...

    I would be careful with assertions like that. SC is soon to go to 3.0 (I've bought an account this week, and my focus may well shift away from ED in the future). For me it's an ethos thing, 1 cookie now or 3 cookies later. Also, 1 cookie now sets up a bad culture of instant gratification. It's having a deleterious effect on the quality aspects of ED and seems to have become ingrained in the culture at fdev. I hope that the 2018 QoL improvements to ED (converting placeholders to actual playable game mechanics) help reverse that trend.

    If a hotas isn't your thing due to the complexities of setting it up. Then perhaps you should be playing on a console with a game pad instead? Much easier than a hotas as it's plug and play... But offers much more than just a keyboard and mouse.

    It turned basically into a moneygrab. And to all FD employees and Dave himself. We see that, and we don't forget how you have treated us in the past. Just saying you know.

    One of the devs said it after it was found. Its there, but you will have to search for it. And as you should know I helped set up base camp Alpha.

    Rolls sleeves up, eyes exits nervously. The Formidine mystery was in the end an utter crapshoot. We had commanders wasting years looking for the answer to that one... And guess what. The original design was that there would be a lonely Anaconda there with a few text messages. THATS IT. Nothing else. Eventually - at the very last moment it got redesigned. To a bigger ship with audio. This in effect prevented players from just well... killing FD devs on sight. And it sorta worked. Sorta. Lets look on the positive side for a moment. There is the idea of just... well... letting us at it. Why should we be informed when a new weapon is available? Normally when im docked im drinking beer, and not hacking government sites to find the latest weapon of choice for the layperson to deal with the wildlife. But er... I cant actually do that as im based on EARTH. NOW. AT THE MOMENT.
