    I have been present at a death, and worked with a few terminally ill people in a hospice when I was younger. Perhaps that has left a mark. Cheers, Drew.

    Anything that occurred in Reclamation and Premonition is canon, which includes the Children of Raxxla, along with lots of other player factions. :) Cheers, Drew.

    This is certainly true, they spoke to me on a number of occasions in early 2016. The Premonition book was quite a specific request (i.e. tell the story of the game, rather than write something completely freeform in the ED universe) I got the impression, though it may not be completely accurate, that support for fiction was rather overstretched in the Kickstarter phase of Elite Dangerous supporting so many projects. Other than the two RPGs which are now rolling out, I believe mine is the only subsequent/sequel novel thus for. Thus it may be that there is now a 'bit of queue' of applications. We'll have to see what Fdev decides to do next. Cheers, Drew.

    Whether folk like/dislike or use/not use DC it MUST always be an option, to keep ED as accessible to as many folk as possible.

    Ah fair enough. On the other hand however, as a former tailor's assistant I have a lot of issues with Daniel Craig's dodgy over tight tailoring and things that are off in his James Bond films, but at the same time I can set that aside and realise it's a film it's fantasy - not realism to any significant degree. Besides, on ED, surely in the future we'd have 'inertial dampers' by then?

    I posit they were expressly designed that way using specific soundscapes and frequencies from nature: 1. Bull elephant infrasound 2. Tiger and lion roars. 3. earthquake infrasounds. All of these have been found to evoke a predator response reaction in primates AND humans!

    Indeed, the fact that Naval FSD technology of the superpowers that these Leviathanic craft have is SO far advanced of anything civillians have --though likely not as advanced as Thargoid tech-- could possibly mean they can 'hide' in an area by generating a WitchSpace mini-instance (for want of a better idiom), a mini buble universe perhaps? Maybe it makes them as heavy as planetoids? Speculation of course...

    Ohhh 3.0 at Gamescom... Which year it is? Should be 2016... That's some strong deja vu if you ask me. Edit: but if they will release something this time i will check out videos.

    It's the Bourne series. As you say, it's a Universal Studios film, releasing in 2018. But you haven't considered: It's not got a game for it yet (Jurassic park has either now or in the past) and it can use work on The Outsider as it's near identical in story. And if it is Bourne ... I called it first :P https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/275284-The-Outsider?p=4255840&viewfull=1#post4255840 EDIT2: Ok "called it" is a stretch .... :P

  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
