    Hi Alex, Not an expert on this, but I believe I'm correct that you can download the .mobi version from the Fdev store and email it to your Kindle. Premonition will be available natively on Amazon/Kindle before too long, but I don't have a date for it at present. Cheers, Drew.

    It is galaxy with star systems which most likely have ammonia worlds. Also it looks way too detailed not to be real.

    It may be a while before it appears on Amazon itself, however the .mobi format available in the download from the Fdev site is compatible with the Kindle, you just need to upload it manually. Cheers, Drew.

    I've advised Fdev, hopefully they'll fix that soon. Cheers, Drew.

    Yes, it's the full book. Ebook only for the time being. More news on other formats to come in time. Thanks to all who have already bought it, I'm having to use a small fire extinguisher on my twitter feed... excuse me... Cheers, Drew.

    Mission screen is loaded in async with rest of interface, that's why it is more flexible. They have been improving this for considerable time now and missions are very fast atm. Happy. As for 2.3.10 improvements - there will be places where you will see them in networking, but there will be new issues or old bugs appearing as well. Enable network logging and report them to FD QA so they can continue to improve the game.

    it is Microsoft "crossplay". Call me when Microsoft will allow Steam Machines to join crowd for example. Microsoft is losing console wars badly, and it's hold on PC gaming is threatened. It knows it very well. Thus this "crossplay" push. Microsoft isn't neutral player in this, and thus Sony just not gonna play their ball. Because Microsoft is desperate to push Windows 10.

    I'm working on Lords of Midnight next. That's due to be completed (from my perspective) in about October. After that I'm going to do a short-ish young adult SF novel called "Sam and the spaceship in the attic". After that I will commit to finishing books 3 and 4 of the Shadeward Saga. Effectively I'll start writing book 3 in early 2018 and then continue straight on to book 4. Guessitimate on availability for Book 3 will be late 2018 (probably launched at that years' FantastiCon) and perhaps Spring/Summer 2019 for book 4. :) I really want to get back to the Shadeward stuff as soon as I can. After those we'll see. There's always a possibility of Shadeward prequels, or something entirely different. Definitely can't link Shadeward and ED. Other than the IP problem (basically I wouldn't be allowed), I wouldn't want to because they aren't the same universe. Shadeward is set only a few centuries ahead of 'now' (exact date not fixed - probably 24rd or 25th century on Earth) and Shadeward is a 'hard SF'...

    NDA does prevent me from this right now, and there are links to other stuff (FDev mysteries and other things that have been in the game since the beginning which have yet to be found - see MB's Fiction Diaries on youtube and DB's comments for details) which could be compromised as a result. As for the tinfoiling, some of the ideas were far better than the ones I came up with. :) Cheers, Drew.

    A quick update regarding the book and the "Engineers' Exploit". This only came to my attention last week and it is far too late for the book to be altered in response. However, whilst I had not anticipated that particular problem, I was well aware of the modus operandi and predilections of the individuals and groups involved and had already dealt with them sensitively in the book. SDC are referred to anonymously, and their 'play style' clearly indicated by other characters in the story who clearly know about them, thus they get no glory in the book for any specific undertakings. Besieger (as per the Galnet article) does kill Salomé (it happened, so it happened) but, naturally, there is a twist and the universe has its own karma. ;) Cheers, Drew.

    Just from a business point of view, if all you have to do is apply for a tax break from the government and they hand you over 4 million, it's free money. Currently the income is from marketing and backers good faith. 4 million up in a short time period is nothing to snort at when you go 4 mill down in 2 months. No-one having 150 mill in the bank would say "you know what, it's enough, we don't need any more" when someone says "here's a free 4 million". It's an illogical argument.

    Or it's what they say it is an obtaining a tax credit before hand and it's BAU... I have no vested interest in being right or wrong but it's very much like a game imagining SC burning before there is hard evidence that it is.

  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.

Basic Information

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.
