    First portion of 2.4 update, mostly QoL updates. Second portion will include more of 2.4 content, now most likely related gameplay to Thargoids story...but i suspect not only.

    I'd agree with you here w3bbo. The 'Conda gets the nod from me. It's a "do anything" ship and that is it's main strength. I couldn't believe what an improvement the G5 Dirty Drives mod made to this ship and I am very happy with it. :)

    Ok Thanks.... One final question, i purchased the Beluga for passesngers however i see it being no different to another ship (conda, Cutter etc) of similar size with cabins installed. Is there something that the Beluga does more than other large ships when carrying passengers? Thankyou

    Obviously you are a bit ignorant towards Ubuntu Linux and Fedora Linux, which are like just way easier to manage than Windows. And those aren't my words, but few of my converted friends. But I guess you have made up your mind, not gonna change that.

    Well, I have to say I'm disappointed. Where's the slow clap emote? Seriously Frontier, all you've done is remake Planet Coaster with dinosaurs and redoing what you did with the zoo expansion for Rollercoaster Tycoon III. You're joining the Jurassic Park franchise three years too late. There were so many other movie franchises you could have done, I personally would have thought Frontier would have been perfect for Ready Player One, it's full of easter eggs, which is right up Frontier's alley AND they have their origins in the exact time period Ready Player One is about (the 80's not the 2040's the story is set in). So congrats Frontier, I hope this works out for you and you haven't joined an already sinking ship. PLEASE I am begging you, do not sell out to Disney (like everyone else does).

    Perhaps it's Blake's 7? To see Avon again...*gasp* :o EDIT: Just learned it's a new Jurassic Park style game title. Oh well, maybe next time FD? ;)

    Interesting idea. This strikes me as a kind of "legal disguise", as it were, a kind of cloaking device of hiding in plain sight. Perhaps if bounties were increased 500%, that would suppress it better?

    Sorry, but as someone involved in professional support for Linux desktop and server for 15 years and as someone using Linux on casual basis I strongly disagree with you. Linux is very consumer friendly OS, especially if done OEM style as Windows usually is. And that's a fact. I don't feel I need to justify it. I understand it is not your OS of choice.

    Google "The Jonestown Massacre". It's grim reading. In terms of referring to SC, the implication is that a lot of fans take whatever CIG say at face value and don't question the reasoning nor take note of past history.

    Known old bug, also seen when rotating ship and watching sun corona. Would be nice to get it fixed

    My two penneth. Don't make a change for the sakes of addressing realisim at the cost of playability. ED is a VERY grind heavy game made more so because there is no sense of place or ownership. When you dial in yet another reason to grind, with an even more limited affect, the result is a further loss of a 'sense of place'. In my opinion stacking is not something that really needs 'fixing' where context and ownership of behaviour sorely does.

    I can't stand Yamiks, he can't get through a sentence without swearing or referring to the male appendage. The childishness is utterly grating. It's a shame because he has some good points that are largely lost in the chaff of crass scripting. In my opinion of course.

  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.

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.
