    Saool started a thread Andromeda in Dangerous Discussion
    Given how crazy bright Barnard's Loop is in Elite Dangerous (when was the last time you stepped out of your house on a night (in winter in the northern hemisphere), looked up and went, "oh look, Barnards Loop"), shouldn't the Andromeda Galaxy look something like this? EDIT: Given they seem to have M110 with it in the sky box, is it just a case of FDEV not realising how big Andromeda really is in the sky (granted, on reflection this image may have it a bit too big, but not too much).

    I have a question. Did Ed get some sleep?

    Very little has been written about socio-economics in the lore of ED actually. There are some technology primers that were made available to the writers, but they are still NDA protected at the moment unfortunately. Space ship ownership is probably best related to house ownership nowadays, possibly the biggest expense an individual is likely to incur. However the economics of today can't be directly compared. Spacepilots, as a % of the entire human population, are a relatively small segment, but the scale of human habitation makes them seem very significant. They're perhaps more akin to owner/driver white van merchants. Cheers, Drew.

    Frontier are beginning to augment the lore via the forums and on Galnet bit by bit, so my pages won't be updated beyond v2.4, I'm slowly retiring them. However, I think my hyperspace page is still pretty accurate. https://www.drewwagar.com/lore/elite-dangerous-lore-hyperspace/ To answer the OP's questions. Yes, I'm pretty sure it's the same 'witchspace', ie. some sort of higher dimension that you're shortcutting through. You're also right that the new hyperdrives are more akin in function to the ones in the original Elite, though using different technology and vastly extended jump ranges. The original Elite drives were more technically advanced than the ones present in FE2/FFE, but their technology was lost in the collapse of Galcop - now just a footnote in history. Cheers, Drew.

    That's your evidence? Oh don't make me laugh. Everyone who got the Lifetime pass knew it was for updates like Horizons and whatever is coming next. The cosmetics were never part of that.

    There's going to be more than just Core Updates. FDev are going to need to rely on both E : D and PC to keep the revenue coming in to create the Dinosaur Game. If you want to keep the revenue coming in, then it's going to take more than just the cosmetics packs we've seen so far. I think at this point, DLC can be packaged in such a way that it can compartmentalise any new gameplay without having too much effect on the existing game. eg. DLC for Atmospheric landings means the landing module gets updated, planetary mining DLC could be the availability of a special vehicle hanger that holds the mining machines and DLC for Gas Giant Scooping is only available with a new type of fuel school but you have to pay real money to get access to the new equipment that you need for the DLC. The exception is that if you've paid for a lifetime pass either separately or as part of being a certain rank of kickstarter backer, the DLC should still be available for free

    Oh My. Have you played them recently? Seriously? The Newtonian flight model was not fun, it was only improved when the fan mods came in and gave it lateral thrust, did it feel like the combat was enjoyable. The ships were ok for the time but they have nothing on the ships in E:D. I'd rather have ships of the present quality rather than a lot of There were only two extra missions, Photograph something, Bomb/nuke something. You didn't have any way to drive around on the planets and there wasn't any interaction you could do with anything outside of the spaceports. For all the effort that went into it, They were just stations on the ground. Seriously, Compare a Bombing mission to a base raid, you're missing out. Crew? That was a horrible distraction. They were just numbers that you had to have in order to fly the ship. Al least this crew can allow you to fly a fighter (which was certainly not in Frontier or FFE). Plot? Sorry but there wasn't one in Frontier. It was a complete sandbox. I did enjoy the...

    This is a rare case where I would suggest the passive approach may have more benefit in the long run.

    This. Cinematics and actual game play are far removed. Also for all we know they might heal slower and slower as more damage is sustained. There are many possibilities. So I would not be drawing conclusions yet, other than this: The first encounters will likely be hard, and one sided. Only once people have started to have fights, no matter how badly they go, will people be able to start looking at viable tactics.

    Yeah I guess you are right. This just sums up my whole feeling on the topic. Not angry at the goal, just disappointed with the approach.

    It all seems so totally unnecessary, I don't want to listen to some NPC's backstory, I want to land my damn ship. I guarantee players will get bored of that and want to turn it off after a few variations.

    No. The burden of proof is upon you to tell us why it matters. I see this as them saving 12m on property to instead spend on making product to sell. We all need you to explain why it is a big problem to NOT own the building.

    A few thoughts. Yes the Feds are probably lying. The wing that attacked the Cyclops was Aegis not just Fed, but I am loving that the Feds are taking the heat. I think Aegis is a bad idea. It sort of makes the differences between the Alliance, Federation and Empire irrelevant in the face of a superior foe. Making for a more boring, two dimensional humans vs aliens affair, which has been done to death.

    Your vids have REALLY helped my experience with the game. My commander would have been a vaporised splat at the bottom of an impact crater on some backwater planet long ago if it hadn't been for you. Cheers man!
