Well - to be completely frank, this mystery had more time invested in it because all of you kept looking for it. Yes, it was always out there, but you gave me more and more ammo to beef it up along the way. So reps to you all - as without your input and tinfoiling... all of this would have been quite different.
TL;DR - it's all your fault.
One of the difficulties in running this event. ;) Yes, you've found a big part of today - well done - I will credit accordingly. If you can collaborate with the story unfolding by not highlighting this too widely I would appreciate it. There is more...
I have asked the discord to reign things in a bit. Can't crit the passion, but I do not want anyone to feel alienated.
If you fly a shieldless sidewinder or a modded corvette, you're welcome. Right on, Commanders.
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.
Space and flight sim games, occasional strategy games. Traveller RPG, astronomy
