    Not the system, but the jurisdiction. The ruling faction (Faction A) sets the jurisdiction over a whole system, but if a different faction (Faction B) controls an asset (a station for example) in that system and the target is not wanted by Faction B, they will not show as Wanted in the vinicity of their assets, even though it's in the same system.

    Just to let you know guys - Cmdr Dirk Brabeen decided to only use half of his 20 GBP prize in the FDEV store and together we've decided to donate the other half to Special Effect charity. Very noble of him - so thank you Commander!

    EIite games were always at the top of my "best game ever" list. So nostalgia, mostly. Plus, I love sci-fi.

    You need to point the ship's nose exactly at the link and be at a very specific distance, about 150m. They're extremely sensitive and equally annoying piece of kit.

    No, not at all, I do not accept that. Deacon was the first disabled superstar on children's TV to be treated normally, he was a smart man and I as a disabled man look back on his legacy and escapades with admiration: "In 1981, during the last year of his life , Joey Deacon was featured on the children's magazine programme Blue Peter for the International Year of the Disabled. He was presented as an example of a man who achieved a lot in spite of his disabilities." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZF0DJRQo_Y https://infogalactic.com/info/Joey_Deacon

    rootsrat replied to a thread Aliens are ruining PvP in PvP
    Well, the CG's as a story progression is not a bad tool at all - I'm fine with that. But somehow these particular ones were a little bit meh in my opinion. More than a bit actually. They were just plain boring and dull. There was no real challenge, just "haul as much stuff as you can". Most of the items were just ordinary stuff you can get at any starport. They could have been thought out a bit better IMHO. Remember the Cerberus Plague? Where players had to choose which starports to save? There was a choice to be made - we either try to help all and fail or focus our efforts on a single starport and win. That was engaging. It forced the community to actually cooperate to achieve a common goal. I personally loved it. I still think this was the best CG storyline to date. The Aegis ones could possibly ditch the ordinarily available goods and focus purely on Thargoids tech instead. Let the players use all that new content that was introduced to the game. We have Barnacles, we have Meta Alloys, we have...

    I think people are possibly getting fed up with progressing the story via boring CG's and manual searching of bases on planets... That's one of the reasons I didn't get involved in any of the CG's, they were pretty dull stuff unfortunately.

    I have my own method of calculating the standings and just ignore Fdev 2 points for every system 1 point for every favorable system -1 point for every unfavorable system My criteria simply is how far and how much a Power has spread his or her influence inline with their ethos. Population could easily be used in place of system count

    Huh, interesting. I presumed I'd made a mistake since I'd never been through the rebuy process before and the screen really confused me. Seems a little late for support though - I've bought and outfitted a whole new ship since then.

    Darren Grey replied to a thread COMPLETED CG Remembrance Week (Rares) in Community Goals
    I managed to have my first death in the game on this mission! A player pirate ambushed me one jump away from Kauruk and demanded my tea. But I didn't realise it was a Commander until I fled and got trounced - if I'd thought more carefully maybe I would've just handed some of my goods over. Alas, my shields disappeared very quickly and then missiles took me out. Was quite a shock - I'd never seen the death screen before. In my confusion I must have clicked something wrong as I got rebooted in my Cobra but missing most of my modules :-/ It put me back at Heike, so the only big loss was my expensive fuel scoop. Anyway, well done to the pirate - was nice to have some surprise excitement :)

    Yes the "Git Gud" folks seem to be missing a trick it seems to me: I'd argue that ED is like Chess, in that it is good practice to help out others novice to the game to get the most from it, as gunning after absolute beginners for the sake of it is a hollow victory in which you learn little.
