    I have plans. Whether any of them survive contact with open mode remains to be seen. ;) It will be what it will be. Cheers, Drew.

    Salomé has flown out into the void (as a player character) a number of times. She went to Beagle point, not via teleport but by good old fashioned slog across the stars. During her various travels she scanned and 'first discovered' quite a few systems. She was looking for something too... Cheers, Drew.

    My in-game daughter flew out there to escape me. Apparently I was too overbearing a mother. :( I've heard back from her - she's doing well, she arrived at Jacques yesterday, and managed to sell her exploration data for the trip for around 45 million. One thing she did tell me, before she cut me off, was that nearly all her equipment cost more to transport than the equipment was worth. Anything less than 4A you may as well buy out there, unless it's engineered. Like all kids, you hope they'll come back, but I think she might be gone for good. :(

    I have voted twice (more than 12 hours between) using the same name and e-mail. No problem. If they allow that then I assume it's OK.

    It is on the list of things to discuss. No promises though. :) No offence taken! I listen to the criticism and try to learn from it. As was pointed out on the main Rift thread, i signed up for this and should take any flak for how the story turns out - it's my content at the end of the day. Some will love it, some will say it's too complicated, some will say 'Meh', some will say 'After all this time, is that it?' etc. etc. ... ;) There are lots of complexities involved, not least the game itself evolving massively over the time-scales involved in ways that weren't known at the start. I get a small slice of dev time for which I'm very grateful. I have tried to write an interesting story for folks to discuss, figure, 'tin-foil' and enjoy. I've made decisions on what to adjust as we've gone along. I've tried not to 'over-hype' it, but there's a fine line between getting people to notice and over-promoting things. I have learnt a lot along the way and would be a lot wiser going into it a second time...

    I would agree, but as far as I know (!) we're not there yet with the technology. Yes, this is fair criticism - I'd love to see more exploration tools - more sophisticated scanners and so on - it would make putting together an exploration story much more engaging. With clues - the trouble us, until you see how people are responding to clues, it's difficult to tell in advance whether the clue was too easy or not. Hence the injection of subsequent clues if folks aren't going where you hoped they would go. :) Cheers,

    This was awfully difficult to balance between being trivial and impossible. Having seen the community in action since I would do in differently if I did it again - it was a learning experience. For the curious I will write up an explanation of how each clue led to the next at some point when I have a little spare time. :) At a high-level it was designed to be stepping stones. Eg. Reorte to Riedquat was the teaser. Heart and Soul a visible milestone on the way and so on. The only clues that were in the first book were that something odd was going on, it was called the Formidine Rift and you had to follow the R-R line. Cheers, Drew.

    Spot on. I know the additional clue is a bit contrived - and I accept that criticism, but it had to be unlocked at a certain point in time to allow the book to be finished. Cheers, Drew.

    You should be fine actually. Back in 2013 Frontier posted the following (Updated 2015). "Elite Dangerous Media Usage Rules" This still stands, although there has been requests for an update to cover wider usage.

    These days distances are used to calculate positions for systems that are remote from your current position. Before ED 2.1, you only got a time stamp and the name of the current system in the network log, and only if you had verbose logging enabled. You had to calculate the actual position for the system using distances from the galaxy map. That is why the functionality exists. After ED 2.1 the position of the current system was made available in the network log, and after ED 2.2 also in the journals. I haven't logged any distances at all since the release of 2.1 (not that I logged that many before that). So, unless you you need to find the position of a remote systems somewhere, you can pretty much forget about distances.
