    Cosmos replied to a thread [PROPOSAL DISCUSSION] Ship Rebuy Penalty Cost Discussion in 2.4 Beta General Discussion
    I dont know if this has been mentioned before but one thing stands out as a glaring issue. I'm all for stopping the sidey exploit of removing bounties but apparently this only applies if one has PvP'd? Really? Frontier sell this game advertised in a way that is becoming clearly dishonest. Clearing bounties by sidey suicide should be the same for everyone regardless of playstyle. What sham are you people at FD up to? You sell the game set in a cutthroat galaxy where we apparently have infinite freedom to (lmao) Play our way. The above statement, using Frontiers words, not mine, is turning out to be the biggest load of bull I've seen in the gaming industry. You know there is some rational to reporting this game to the advertising standards body..

    We're talking apples and oranges here I think. There is no comparing me blowing up your e-spaceship (in a game where that's allowed) to cyber bullying (which is what you have been doing) Again, I genuinely think you need help.

    You're clearly not thinking this through There is a small number of SDC members They've been removed from Möbius If they want to do another mode infiltration, they'll have to trick their way in, which results in a shadowbans. Please provide a citation that proves the events in Dogmaa lead to SDC and other groups being afraid to infiltrate the Möbius Private Group, which is what we were discussing in case you forgot.

    First off, my apologies if a duplicate thread (if so, please merge/close/delete). I exited HS to a system to be confronted with no star. Thinking it was black hole, I hit select target ahead, but no response. Looking at my nav panel, I noticed that the main star was ~98ls away. I spun my ship round to see that it was in orbit with another star ~110ls away from me. I presume that this is a new thing where, when you exit HS and would pass through a companion star, you appear some way off. If so, awesome, but I hope FD haven't got rid of the "OMG" moment if you exit between two stars. :)

    I've only got station griefers and cheats blocked Jason (as we've been over more than once already), and I don't think you are either of those things (as we've been over more than once already). So your bleating and whining about me picking on you by blocking you is wasted, as I haven't done it. But since you've dug up the topic of blocking here's some handy info for anyone whose interested in using the the block function to counter griefing direct from Sandro Sammarco lead designer of the game: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/367388-Lead-Designers-advice-on-dealing-with-griefing-(part-2)

    I forgot: The Paladins will insist that you spend a week at a command line, tweaking your internet. It's now midnight, Saturday, in the UK. In two, to three hours, they will have gone to bed, fallen on their keyboards, or will have had an intervention of some kind. :) Then, we get the game back.

    Its a tough one... On one hand i dont agree with bullying cyber or otherwise and sometimes it is what it amounts too. OTOH just because its the internet or a videogame.... In any medium where you interact with people actions have consequences and imo that needs to be weighed up before doing something. A few years ago on here a poster -appologies if exact details hazy - (foolishly imo) mailed out on here saying he just got back from sag a (when it was still a thing) and would like an escort.during the escort one of the cmdrs thought it was funny to blow them up. He unsurprisingly got a bashing on the forums etc, and apparently took offence at the reaction...... Actions have consequences and that goes both ways imo. When a pink haired cmdr gleefully stream snipes and team kills a player they are meant to be protecting and is then caught red handed cheating..... They get lambasted for it (rightfully imo) indeed this forum actually protects the offender far more than it should imo, if there is video...

    You told me FDEV threatened shadow bans for mode invasion, when they clearly didn't. Robert Maynard supplied a link and it turns out the shadow ban threats were only made about ban evasion, now I understand you like trying to paint yourselves as victims and shriek in alarm. But by either trying to dress up what FDEV really said, or trying to conceal the failed attempts at ban evasion you haven't really achieved anything other than making yourselves look duplicitous.

    My health has confined me to quarters in the last week, so I've been getting in more time exploring. What disturbs me is that I now have more time in Elite, than in RL flying. :( Only a fraction of the stars have been discovered, say the 1%'rs. Never underestimate time-rich ADD gamers with OCD, I say. :(

    Too bad the actors don't resemble the main characters actually at all. The comics are brilliant, which is why I'm afraid the movie would be 'meh' to me in the best possible scenario. :(

    Yep you got me, you're totally right. PvP players who have no interest in the BGS speak your name in feared hushed tones, so concerned are they you might topple their minor faction they don't give two figs about. Jason, Cosmo and I were selected by the PvP Illuminati to take you down in this thread and were paid in Star Citizen dollars, but we've clearly failed. I'm off to commit e-sepucu with a thruatmaster, as honour dictates.

    Explorers just need to stock up on the requisite materials before the journey. It's not onerous and the materials have no mass... Sheesh... Let's move on to a topic of actual importance now shall we?

    While scanning a planet in solo, Elite burped to a black screen, and gave me a "Disconnected Fom Matchmaking Server" error. It's just like a weekend with a Beta Test going on, or something. :)

    Passenger missions might be another option. Be careful taking criminal passengers, if you're scanned entering or leaving a station carrying criminal passengers, the station will open fire on you. Some passengers also don't like being scanned and will end their contract if you're scanned. Others don't like hull damage so be careful for that as well. Doing PVE in an unengineered ship can be a challenge when facing higher ranked NPCs. Be very careful. Good luck, CMDR.

    Yes this might very well be beyond me but I will have a look. Unfortunately I don't want to make EDP open sourced for various good reasons so if someone wants to help they have to be comfortable with that, but I would of course welcome help. This would be a nice feature if I could get it implemented

    That's still very sad indeed. Anyway reading the OP of that thread the problem FDEV were addressing with mentions of harassment was attempted group and block ban evasion : "We wanted to reiterate some examples regarding the rules of Player harassment. If a player has been blocked from a private group, or a group/individual has taken every step possible to remove a player from their gameplay, then attempting to circumvent this in any fashion is a serious offense and action will be taken accordingly. Attempting to re-establish contact with an individual who has blocked a player through secondary accounts or other methods of attempting to evade the block are against the rules. Action can and will be taken against both the accounts in question and the main accounts of players that we deem to be harassing players through this method." The paragraph about mode invasion is this one :

    Yeah Eurogamer covered it well... For those who havent read it, its worth a read: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2016-04-01-griefers-or-saviours-the-elite-dangerous-players-causing-a-rift-in-space I actually flew with SDC for a time, left due to a dispute with one, but it was fun and there was never a dull moment. Even now there is political tension and I do enjoy it. This sort of thing provides what the PvE game lacks in my view. I suppose I like having decent adversaries in game. They are characters and many of them I quite like despite conflict over a game. Its just a game, worth us all remembering that. ;)

Biography:
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!
