    He he, they couldn't afford me. ;-) Seriously though, never say never, but I would need a proper project team to make something greater than what was achieved with the resources we had. That depends on what appetite Fdev has for that sort of content. Ultimately it will be a commercial decision for them. Cheers, Drew.

    As for the moment, size of citizenships in systems is static, and if required tweaked manually by FD. They haven't given reasons why occupation sizes aren't part of BGS yet, but I will guess they will additional code and game design (you need to protect it against brigading, etc.). Also I suspect in larger scale of things what we do play little role (few hundred commanders doing refugee missions let's say in Lave most likely won't change numbers that much). However, I am all for more feedback of what's going on in background in game. I really, really hope it is matter of core updates, that there's serious rethink how BGS impact game and vice versa. We have something, but want more. As for total size of humanity I think there are calculated somewhere by some curious commanders, but that number are in tens of billions. Considering sold copies of game, and just who play game at once (let's say there are 100k commanders on active duty)....yeah, we are nothing ;) But sure our actions have impact. So yeah,...

    This is true, they were kickstarted. It's a very expensive process unfortunately, so funding them is the major stumbling block. Cheers, Drew.

  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.
