    Nope, you didn't. It always shows game time, which is great for arranging play sessions with friends from various different countries. Everyone just works out their own time from the game time and will know exactly when to meet.

    Before 2.3 autodock was working fine for me. After it, I get a juddering flight, so something's acting squarely (not really surprising though as 2.3 was a deep, deep code update .. deeper than we'll ever see again, imho.)

    I think general issue is that lot of people 'feel' that there's some "depth" missing. But they don't know and have very little idea how it might be improved. What means depth in such game where everything is grand and complex in background? I take simple terms to describe it. Do I feel engaged when playing ED for let's say 2 hours a week (which is my current go to approach)? I feel overwhelmed in fact. There's so much to do. Knowing how it plays out in background gives some sense of belonging as well. But is ED engaging enough to play it 2 hours a day? That is really 'depends' territory. Some people still will be satisfied but some people will want more - more in-depth thinkering to get additional advantage, more enganging daily story lines to sink their teeth into. That's what missing in my opinion. I hope some indications about things to come - like delayed gameplay around persistent POI system which was hinted during 2.3 beta cycle - there will be more interesting things to do.

    Edward, thanks for all work done on this. I think major rub which causes some of discontent is lack of news about future of ED beyond 2.4/end of season 2. We know 2.4 is coming, most likely autumn (following previous patern of release). But we lack any knowledge what lies beyond. I think in this case potential date about potentially having news might give some goal for players to look forward to. I know you want marketing to concentrate on *now*, current state of game and I actually applaud for you for that. But having some news about future...without giving specific promises...would be nice. Have a nice Sunday :)

    I really doubt ObsidianAnt asking for money for GPU is something bad. He later opened Patreon account to do it even more proper way. He has been best example of space sim fan who wants to share good things. Not sure it is something you should hold against him.

    Dates are given one by one. We have PS4 date now. I expect them to announce 2.4 date at August trading shows. More likely we will also know more about future releases. That's how FD have done this for years. They use media attention spots to attract interest. They don't have millions of PR money to waste.

    Season 2 promise for 2016 was maybe very early marketing, but it was quickly removed and later on it was clear Season 2 will be longer. My personal opinion is that they took too long time, and something went wrong with planning. This worries me a bit, but not in 'oh my god sky is falling' sense people seem to treat it. Season 3 silence is because they won't do seasons, they will do updates differently. It is very obvious. PS4 porting is done by same team of XBO porting (sans Cobra engine team members who have done PS4 specific bits). To be frank, after all criticism - some of them very justified - of Season 2 and how updates came to be I would prefer to them reinvent model how they will move forward and then let us know. We already know seasons won't be a thing. So question is what will replace them. I guess we will know in autumn.

    Pay attention to what? You seem to think FD doesn't care or they don't know. Both are so far from truth that I don't know even to start. You don't know situation. You don't understand it. So stop pretending you do. Criticize? Sure. But stop mob FD. Not gonna help anyone. Never had. - - - Updated - - - He is very passionate about ED. Claiming him giving balanced commentary though is a bit hard sell. He is well know for being very emotional and jumping to conclusions in many cases. And being emotional isn't bad. Introducing emotions into complex issues however is. He has never claimed to have any solutions. He has justifiably pointed out issues with the game. And I doubt he claims to do anything else pass that.

    They don't react to these repeated circledances around fire though. Because it has been addressed many times. Still many people think they know better about game development. Ohh well.

    You know what's cool? Proper criticism. You know what's not? Trying very hard to make things bigger than they are. Posting thousands of posts, both here and on reddit won't develop game faster. - - - Updated - - -

    You can do that, it's just two buttons instead of one .. <enter camera mode> <toggle from ship conttol, to camera control>. I think the fact the camera always defaults to ship control, every time you switch views too can be easily confusing but once you've got your head around it, two buttons aint that bad and the extras; blur, depth of field, camera speed and such, cool.

    It's not that I think, even though every one of them I've met, at a couple of elite meets now, was top blokes and even though we are talking 'Cambridge' here. People who want to see the potential of ED achieved don't want that potential to be wiped out by others who don't necessarily always have, the best interests of the game long term, at heart. These might be ppl might be worried about pirates interdicting them on the way to an engineer or who decide not to engage with the BGS and then call the game shallow. If people can manage your expectations though, and don't risk turning off new players, there is already a lot to do in ED if you're willing to engage with it. Problem is, some people seem to think ED should be tying our shoe laces for us, or solving the mysteries of gravity quarks a couple of years in. (When - obviously - that's season 4)

    LOL ok sorry if I sound a little bit MORE confused.... Divisions = small / medium / large ship type Class = Standard / Unlimited entries So you said "4 divisions" but there's only 3... Secondly....your statement also implies that should I choose to run in the Unlimited class, I am forever bound to *ONLY* Unlimited runs for the duration of the event, right? As an example - let's say I chose to run Small / Unlimited... I could then run Medium / Unlimited and maybe even a Large / Unlimited, but I cannot run a Medium / Standard?

    I'm reminded of how I felt when I played the original Elite back in the day. I was deathly afraid of Feudal and lower systems - pirate attacks were a sure bet, and my Cobra was nowhere near combat-ready. I traded mostly in Democracy, Corporate States and maybe, sometimes, in Confederate space. Those were the levels of security I was comfortable with. I was somewhat disappointed that in ED, security levels have almost no bearing on how safe you were going to be. I could go through an Anarchy system with a full load of gold and not get harassed at all, and I then I go into a Democracy system with just Biowaste and get interdicted and fired upon not just once, but 3 times. However I must say that since 2.3 dropped I have hardly been interdicted at all, regardless of system security levels.

    My understanding is that if you've chosen, say, "Small/Unlimited" for a run, you're stuck with this for that board. So you could potentially have 1 "Medium/Unlimited" and 1 "Small/Unlimited" in 2 separate boards (Intro / Main Event)

    Fantastic race, even better leaderboards! :) Great fun, and thanks to Aken (and BBRC) for the event! Just 1 small comment (not a complaint, just something to think about) about the boards.... Shouldn't Bruski's positive time be #1 instead of #0? Then his negative time could be either #0 or #-1 .... Or if we're gonna be comparing it to real-world podiums, his negative time would be #1, his positive time be #2 and furrycat's time be #3 then....
