    Trying to shine while being an a-hole. Not popular @ OP. Game mechanics might be working properly here. You choosing to do this, however, is negative Karma. Very negative.

    The best PvP in the game is the boardgame RISK; the BGS! As long as Frontier have Open, Private Group and Solo, I really don't understand these threads, to be honest.

    Even on an M.2 PCIE NVMe it does that, except the "stalling" happens less often and the duration is much shorter. Not as bad as running off a standard HDD. I think even if you had oodles of RAM and completely loaded ED into RAM it'd still stall occasionally (32GB of RAM would be enough.. you need about 20GB odd for the RAM Drive or less if you don't even load non-horizons ED, and the remainder for running the game).

    Mr Teatime replied to a thread PiMAX 8K VR in Virtual Reality
    Thanks Strife = I hadn't dug into it much when I first posted this thread and PiMAX seemed to be firming up the specs. I've backed for a standard 8K and so far the kickstarter is going well. My only concern now is that the excitement and PiMAX trying to accommodate backer's wishes ends up introducing too much feature creep...seriously looking forward to delivery now :)

    As for the moment, size of citizenships in systems is static, and if required tweaked manually by FD. They haven't given reasons why occupation sizes aren't part of BGS yet, but I will guess they will additional code and game design (you need to protect it against brigading, etc.). Also I suspect in larger scale of things what we do play little role (few hundred commanders doing refugee missions let's say in Lave most likely won't change numbers that much). However, I am all for more feedback of what's going on in background in game. I really, really hope it is matter of core updates, that there's serious rethink how BGS impact game and vice versa. We have something, but want more. As for total size of humanity I think there are calculated somewhere by some curious commanders, but that number are in tens of billions. Considering sold copies of game, and just who play game at once (let's say there are 100k commanders on active duty)....yeah, we are nothing ;) But sure our actions have impact. So yeah,...

    Yep... Have you seen/heard of/played the boardgame called Risk? BGS works like that and is the ultimate PvP, in my oppinion.

    Combat rank says nothing... absolutely NOTHING about the skills. It is just a rank. As far as I can tell, this guy has probably practiced A LOT within the training section of the game.

    I would love to help out with this one, even if I am on the side of trying to communicate with Thargoids, rather than killing them. We have a War in the player faction I am in, so I need to focus on that during the weekend. Good luck to you all!

    To be fair, recent mainstream gaming media articles has been doing just that (except for few painfully obvious paid for articles).

    I will make a guess that they will require incredible amounts of power, will disable your shields and won't work well on human ship hulls and shields.

    I think second one is a bit worse. As gamers we can dream aright, but let's not fool ourselves.

    Make believe system. It is ancient as gambling. Chris taps in - and frankly only reason SC isn't pure open scam for me it is because Chris believes that himself - that 'you can put almost everything in game so let's put everything' feeling lot of gamers definitely have. Just check out these forums for 'what would happen if we cross breed ED, SC, NMS, etc. etc.' and other nonsense. Lot of people, even bright, clever people I know personally, believe it is just that easy and that CIG is able to do that. What CIG really struggles is to make anything scripted real. They know gamers will call them out on being fake as crap if they just do scripted stuff - despite the fact you can do very immerse things with scripting, just need to be creative and oohhh, you need solid QA team. So it ends up them not knowing really how to achieve that. That's however would be lesser of their problems if they would have at least basic gameplay loop going. NPCs as traffic controllers ain't that.

    It would be totally exciting if they would have finished one damn simple game loop. They haven't. It is basically dream up sandbox do everything game. It is for gamers who thinks that game devs don't understand what they want - because they want it all. It's an exercise in vanity.

    Nothing is too ambitious if you have to keep project to float around with people who understand zero about game design but know they can dream. Also obvious last ditch survival push for Citizencon is obvious. Good riddance.

    Good for roleplaying .. though yes, agreed - not very profitable on this particular CG. I suspect the lore is, it's normal explosives with some alien material mixed in to make them effective. It would be an interesting experiment to deliver some alien stuff to the CG. What you lose on the trade you MIGHT make up on the CG rewards table. I've no evidence for this .. and I'm a little surprised alien wares haven't been given a rare goods value .. but the introduction of aliens into ED is a one off thing and somewhere there's a database of who delivers what to CG's (you got a decal in the beta from this dbase). I wouldn't rule out at least a chance that a hand-crafted element could be added to your game this time around. Either that or someone needs to call Canonn Research and get them over to Eurybia, fast (not me, I'm away now for the weekend). Please if you can get this CG completed - and Thargoids wiped out - by the time I get back? Think of the children!

    I'm of the opinion that taking commodities away from engineering game design caused a problem .. because it meant a rapid proliferation of the mods. If a larger percentage of the people you meet have upgrades, you need them too. If it had been left as it was, engineering would have stayed relatively niche. It's a thorny one obviously and OK fair enough, commodities were removed so people could use the feature and ED is developing a range of features - but I'm a bit worried that rumours of engineering being made even easier after 2.4 will mean yet more proliferation and that soon, having engineer mods will be a 100% necessity no matter what role you play in the game .. which is not so much blazing your own trail I think.

    I heard on the radio last night that, apparently, following the end of the Korean War (25 Jun 1950 – 27 Jul 1953) an official cessation - and declaration of peace - never took place, meaning that technically USA and North Korea have been in a perpetual (legal) state of war, ever since. I only just caught the piece on radio but although the current situation doesn't exactly promote drawing a line under the Korean War, sounded to me like it might be at least partial explanation of Pyongyang's beligerency towards the USA and nuclear program (self-defence). Not saying it's a nice regime but regime change is a slightly different issue unless official cessation of hostility is dependent on it I suppose (though regime change is not strictly permitted by UN convention iirc). Maybe the USA should declare end of Korean War (ended 50 years ago) so we at least know where we are. A nuclear armed North Korea is probably inevitable anyway by now - I think.

    Do Thargoid materials work like rare goods does anyone know - a bonus for delivering over distance? I've delivered a couple of thousand tons of explosives but I'm interested in trying to track some weird stuff down. Any Thargoid experts in here?
