    Beta 5 should drop in the next day or so, and given Ed's last message on this, I imagine we'll see something. It's not something they would want untested to some degree before it goes live, even if it's just a demo plate for us testers.

    Agreed. I don't want to have to follow some community created spreadsheet to be able to complete some alien artifact missions. We don't need more signposts (not that there's anything wrong with the tourist beacons). What we need is more tools for exploration.

    I bet that's a lot of those in the pic I showed. The core gets a bit crowded. And the point is, you have to make sure a system will work in any situation. A nav mode that highlights all the jumpable stars that you can go to would get complex even before you got to core numbers.

    Really? Did they teach you that at business school? Listen. It's not about "crying" or "getting one up" or "12 year olds" or "brats". It's about not wanting Frontier to add free to play like features to a paid for game. Not to paywall features off, that really is it. Which is perfectly fair and reasonable, and something that's in EVERY PLAYER'S INTEREST. The only reason people are upset about it is because they give a ** about the game. You can sit there insulting people and trying to paint it as something else, but that really is the long and short of it.

    No, you just forgot to put 'think' in your post, you know when you were being abusive.

    Or it means that I can't be bothered. I use both and I know which one fits best in my mind.

    If you want Intel, buy Intel. No one mentioned them at all (or servers, or Clinton or Linux.) This is a thread about the new 16-core AMD chip. I'm happy to debate AMD's Pros and Cons (there are many of each) and Intel's as well, but if you can't contribute anything but hysterical, incorrect and obviously biased opinions on a CPU core that isn't even out yet, then just stay quiet, or start your own Intel friendly thread. Why you feel so obviously threatened by what others choose is beyond me. My choices do not invalidate yours and how I spend my money has nothing to do with you. Back to the thread. For those of you interested in more detail on the new core, here's a PC Gamer article with some details on the clock speed and OC abilities.

    No, disagree. People are entitled to express their opinion (politely). Doesn't mean FD will listen. The trouble with your post is that you didn't think :)

    Looks like this board has been recalled or removed from sale temporarily. Nothing available on Amazon, NewEgg or any other major site I can name. Too bad, as reports started coming forward that they were fixing the BIOS successfully for OC and other issues. Am hoping they get things sorted soon.

    Adding a Filter for overall Range would make VR navigation easier. Often I also want to Filter Anarchy with Stations only which have Restock, Refuel, and a Black Market. It's a pain to search manually seriously. Even the System Map should be made to follow the Next Destination selected so you can look ahead directly. To have to use a Gap Map to filter and then select a System and then select each Station and then look up it's details is a HUGE PAIN IN THE NECK!

    NAT is the only reason the vast majority have not swapped to IPv6 yet. That will extend the time for a transition, but not for long. On the same subject, here's a Slashdot article on UK ISP compensating end users for bad service.

    sleutelbos replied to a thread Murdered in Lidpar.. in Xbox One
    If you are a trader: upon entering Lidpar do NOT head for the station. Head 'up or 'down', at a 90degrees angle to the station. Keep travelling a bit, then turn and aim above the station. You are now a 1000LS or so above the 'star->station' plane. You'll see any pirates coming from miles, you'll approach the station at a much higher speed and generally will be fine. Make sure you overshoot so you approach the station facing the star, any pirate will have to go all around you whereas there are always juicier targets who just go straight for the station.

    Providing the ship has one installed, I like this. Explains why you don't have one on the SLF. Also, could be used by the gunner position to generate additional funds.

    No, cmdr names don't have to be paid for. I think he's just making a comparison to something else in the hud, and asking if you'd be ok if the cmdr name wasn't visible to others unless you'd paid a fee.

    Alright, I want to see this for myself. Got the trial for a few Euro, will cancel afterwards. First up: downloading the full game apparantly. :(

    Cosmo replied to a thread 2.4 guess in Dangerous Discussion
    I think the combat will be different, maybe we need engineered weapons so we can win against Thargoids. They could be end-boss, elite mobs. Also they could be new Powers in Powerplay. Maybe we can work for a Thargoid faction and trade with them. If you increase your reputation we might be able to land in a Thargoid Megaship or something. It can be a lot more than just simple interdictions. Either way it increases variety with more mob types. Fleshing out existing roles with more variety and depth is important too. Maybe add a non-combat role to multicrew.

    Did you read the thread? Or even the last few posts? Or are you throwing out insults based on what you imagine people want? Nobody has asked for everything to be free, not even close.

    That's true. Controllers are supposed to be dispassionate, people under combat stresses less so. Hah! I've just had a fun few minutes feeding Werner Herzog quotes into WillBadGuy, and it's hilarious. :D That's an interesting site and one I've not come across before. Most of the sentences sound a little "choppier" than others I've used, but certain individual words are spoken perfectly, as though the algorithm is looking for words it knows and pulling pre-tuned renderings from the sound bank rather than constructing them phonetically on the fly. It makes a good stab at realistic inflections at the ends of sentences too. I love this stuff. I've been fascinated by computer voice replication since the days of the Currah ΅Speech.

    It seems to be fractions vs decimal, say a third : 0.33333333333333333 vs 3/12. Engineering vs say trade using discrete amount. The "measuring" system (and so the monetary system) is just a tool intended to serve whatever it is folk (perhaps humanity) is doing at that time. As I say it wouldn't surprise me if, as a civilisation, we switch to something else down the line.

    And what would be wrong with having to work the area you have been rezzed in until you have enough credits to get you where you wish you were instead of where you deliberately gamed the system to return to the bubble.

About jontycampbell
One of my top priorities is to endeavor to live as an inspired man -to see the world as fresh promise of the curious and strange; every morning the unexplored, wonderful and possible- even on those days where it seems nothing's going right.

Let's face it, we all like a good moan occasionally, yet there's a grand canyon of difference between moaning, and quietly acknowledging that yes, things are sometimes rubbish yet rolling our sleeves up and getting stuck in anyway and making the best of it. And moaning won't bathe the baby.

To paraphrase Churchill, True "Optimism is going from setback to setback with no loss of enthusiasm". I'm a lover of hot sauce and cookie dough. A Creator. I translate & polish written output others are unwilling or unable to do. I slice, I dice, I even make chips.

There are few things more exciting to me than finding out. One thing I do know, is that Travel is the fastest vaccine for "isms" ever devised. It's trite, but we're all the same really. I'm forever seeking the trail of the next adventure, big, small, foreign or domestic - even the next post code. I'd love to get a Eurail pass and hitch a trail across Europe. The Romance of a tooled leather-bound atlas has always held a certain appeal: faraway places with strange sounding names.

I've learned a few things out here in the world, though the greatest, most fascinating, most important thing I've learned is how much I don't know. Onward!
