    IMDB is first original crowdsourcing site. It has editors and stuff, but most of content comes from people reporting to it.

    Well that is certainly not my intention, perhaps I need to work on the clarity of my assertions. My key point is not to further divide but to find an amicable solution for all that solves your initial premise. Anything new, be it AX weapons or any other change, will undoubtedly upset the balance of PvP in the game. My key point here is to remove all reasonable doubt. The game should make it crystal clear that Open = PvP; and as a result sanctions against players who CLog could and should be more forcefully applied.

    As for money required to finish game is hard to predict because SC internals are not known that well. But they will need considerable money to keep servers running and continue development. I just don't see how.

    Well I don't want to detract too far from the point, but to clarify perhaps it would have been better for me to say 'not ALL players' in that previous point. I was not trying to advocate that people should give up and go play PVE mode. Merely that presenting the players with the clear choice at the mode selection screen would leave less room for confusion; and hopefully as a side effect help alleviate the issue in your OP. EDIT: See this is a very good point, I don't see how giving other players options would be an affront to anyone else if they are not there to see it?

    All recent sales have been failures. Yes, money is still flowing but trend is slowing down and I think it will be quite lower than in 2016. Also remember - till Gamescom people expected CIG to actually deliver (I remember SC fans reporting that 3.0 is incoming any second now). Since Gamescom it has been slowed down very considerably.

    Impossible is not the antithesis of 'easy'. I said it would 'take some work' to implement. And please don't bring the immersion word into play, it is a weak argument when we are all flying around FTL and shooting visible lasers. ;)

    No, I was talking about giving the option to the player to specify up front how they want to play. Immediately before I was agreeing how I think renaming open to specify PVP. I can't decide if that is a quote mine, cherry picking or an ad hominem but A+ for effort ;)

    Yes, I think at this stage it would be a good course of action to reconsider the options. It is quite obvious that players do not want to play the way that FD originally intended. I am not sure you fully understand the way the game architecture works in respect to modes. It would be possible, it would take some work sure, but it is not 'impossible' ;)

    I don't think they can anymore. It has been constant struggle to gather money for CIG this year and after 3.0 'reveal' it has went a bit downhill. Also it is good question do you trust these numbers anymore, because if CIG situation is serious, they are not really in position to tell the truth, otherwise it is end for the project. While they can convince that money is pouring in, some people will still believe that it is possible.

    They can be outfit to be tough ships, but you can't fly one like a fighter, it will be a different experience to an FDL ;)

    I will wait for summary here and on Twitter. Too much fun with other things. If SC pulls something amazing, well, then I will see it a bit later than others :)

    As above, I also run a GTX970 and VR low is about all I can manage too. This is to be expected, VR is a huge strain on your system.

  3. Hi I am Nats, a long time Frontier and First Encounters fan. Been visiting this forum for around 8 years now looking for news on Elite 4 - still can't really believe it is actually getting made at last.

    I have loved being part of the Elite Dangerous Kickstarter it was certainly quite a ride, especially having a laugh with the other fans in the comments section - the Monty Python bit must be the highlight for me, other than the first day and the fantastic ending of course. But I also very much enjoyed seeing the Elite 4 project gradually come to life from basically nothing to a fully fledged game concept over the length of the Kickstarter.

    I can't wait now for 2014 and especially looking forward to that planetary landing expansion when it comes along !!

    Please don't hestitate to leave a message if you wish.

About nats
Biography:
Also known as Commander Nats - drop by and say hello in-game.

Started computer gaming with the ZX81 then the Spectrum but it wasnt till I played games like Frontier, X-Wing and Wing Commander on my Amiga that I got started getting hooked on computer games - mainly space and flight sims. And then First Encounters came and it was even better. Then space and flight sims as computer games died. I dropped into the Frontier forums religiously every year after, waiting for news on Elite 4, pestering David Braben quite a bit with constant 'where is it' questions.

I bought into Elite Dangerous just after the Kickstarter finished, during Standard Beta, and it hasn't disappointed. Main thing I am waiting for are the planetary landings, which I loved most in the earlier games.

Things I would liike added to the game: planet landings/busy spaceports, better external view system with landing/chase view, Thargoids, human presence, busy spacestation docks, better missions, spaceship crew, passengers, cargo life support.
Location:
Yorkshire, UK
Interests:
Space and flight sim games, occasional strategy games. Traveller RPG, astronomy
