    I'd agree with that. Missions need to make sense and let's be honest, killing 60, 70, 80 ships for a few million doesnt really add up. Hell, if a faction had a fleet of 100 disposable fighters, their infrastructure would have to be phenomenal. A massacre mission should be 5-10 ships with one or two tough nuts to crack. Better yet, kill some here, find out info about some there, kill them get info about a base, do recon. Once you have info bomb pirate base or join an npc fleet to attack. It feels like twiddling numbers without an effort to contextualise the actions and/or outcomes. I'm not sure complexity and micro managing is an answer as much as broadening the context, the whys and wherefores, for the things we already do. There is stacks to do, there just isnt a variety of outcomes.

    No? Say I wanted to engineer my ship? Are you suggesting that this is achievable without monotonous repetition? What about establishing trade routes? Upgrading my ship... I understand your choice point of view but I don't believe that there is enough context or impact to come from those choices to make them meaningful. In the context of this thread we are talking about mission stacking and a deviation from reality or believability vs playability. Taking your point and converting it to a playing style then surely missions are both largely irrelevant but also any incidental progression peripheral? You would never stack anyway since it would make no sense nor offer advantages to your 'game life'? I get the feeling that in your having a goal, your getting there is almost entirely accidental? As a gamer but also in life I set goals and find the most efficient way to get there (and if it ends up being enjoyable then bonus!). My choices are driven by game mechanic and a desire for bigger/faster/more...

    With the greatest of respect I disagree. Currently there are a few reasons to play that fit the ideal of having a goal. Money, rank, equipment and enjoyment. Of those three of them absolutely have a grind element. Yes you can play to enjoy and at a far more gradual rate (due to factional affiliation) earn credits and materials and from there buy items and earn rank. However it's a largely peripheral outcome. If you decide you have a goal that encompasses any of the first three then some form of grinding is a must. In my opinion, there is a balance between game play and realism that has to be walked. Mission stacking allows for what would otherwise be a soul destroying game of repetition to be a little more bare able. Why do I say soul destroying repetitive? Because the missions mean nothing. There is no ownership, no context, no variation beyond a superficial text output upon completion. If I complete missions for a faction then I want to see the roll on effect in the system that I am operating...

    Frontier is the Daddy when it comes to this type of game. I'll pin my colours to the mast and say it will be a very good game.

    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. :)

    For me it's a solid positive move on Frontier ramping up their standing on the games industry stage.

    Hello Ashley
    i know its been sometime but I still would like to get my name changed. It may be easier to change it in the FORUMS than in games. So if you can get my name changed in the FORUMS to Commander Corvis that would be great.

    Wow, they certainly have you buried under with bug tickets my friend. Hope you are getting some rest. I know they can get impatient as they want aswers. Can't blame them for that. But it is tough with so many people filing tickets of all sorts right now. Hang in there mate. You're a good man. I think most of them realize that.

    Well I've been trying to use the 'Insert Image' button, which then brings up a pop up box requesting a URL. So do I just need to type in the location I have my picture stored at on my PC or do I have to upload my pictures somewhere first with an embedded URL?

    Sorry for being a bit thick about this
  7. Hi there.

    There shouldn't be anything preventing your account from putting images in your posts, are you trying to upload them as attachments by mistake?

    Hi Ashley. I made a discovery while playing tonight and I wanted to post a thread on the forums with a couple of pictures of proof of my discovery. However according to my profile I'm unable to attach files/pictures. So could you grant me access to do this or is there another way I can add pictures to my thread.

    Many thanks.
