    "It will be very very bad for you" is designed to knock confidence of young people. However, knocking 10-20% off your deficit is free money (not bad for you) and comes with the benefit of accountable government, able to make policy without concern for upsetting French farming unions etc..

    Only if it continues to try to destabilise the UK with talk of 'how terrible for you' because, fair's fair. Actually against European law to destabilise an extisting member state I believe but Europe and EU are two very different things .. EU is a jumped up and over glorified trade organisation. Europe is awesome, and far too good for the EU, which doesn't deserve your money.

    To benefit from a reduced trade deficit? Around 1 pico second given automated trading algorithms? A political collapse of Europe would be a bigger problem (not the EU though, that needs to be reformed)

    And the strike from third party developers only fueled the fact that Frontier are focusing on the wrong things (the shiny things) rather than fleshing out core gameplay and in-game tools.

    You don't make a loss if you impose tariffs on a trade deficit.

    No doubt smart people but just remember people always have their agenda (and yes, their own high salary does also count as one). It's not Germany's fault the UK can't afford it, it's the EU's. Though I would point out Mrs Merkel, great respect to, but East German (Iron Curtain) heritage. Opinion of the West, may have some bearing? Not sure but 'open the external borders' was a bit .. weird.

    Subsidise individual exporter's tariffs; If you're running a deficit, you ALWAYS win that exchange (think about it)

    Only peanuts if your Health services aren't hitting the wall? You can only borrow to consume for so long, sorry. A £60bn untaxed annual trade deficit aint peanuts either and what happened anyway, to UK's nationalised infrastrctures .. gas, electric, rail, telecoms, free university places, the gold reserve .. how could UK ever fund those, President Juncker's new suits AND Lithuania?

    Maybe a managed exit would be, better than a revolutionary one? A problem is the EU doesn't redistribute wealth to the poorest people in the contributing nations but it does redistribute wealth in an Easterly direction, which is kind of random when you think about it. Squeeze the geese laying the golden eggs too hard and .. "pop" ?

    The EU does not want to lose the £8,000 million (nett) annual subscription, in case wondering.

    To save time, I allways commit to the interdiction and then highwake out. I've actually never even tried to fight an interdiction, because I know it can last for quite a while.

    Welcome home Commander! Overjoyed for your return and thank you for contributing to Elite. Thankfully Dangerous is shaping up to be the signature Elite in the making and rightfully pays plenty homage to the originals beyond just game-play and aesthetics. Fly safely, fly dangerously and good luck with cosmic reminiscing. The single best recommendation is to seriously take your time and experiment before you commit or switch between game-mode and play style. Don’t be afraid of a do-over or two and if needs be ‘clear your save’ can be found in-game under options menu. The most awesome gamepad software ever: Padstarr, Grifta Morphing Gamepad, TobiiEyeX Controller, ECHOTalkative AI VoiceAttack with HCSVoicepacks are highly commended for systematically complimenting game-play and more. Have fun acclimating, play-testing and configuring your control schemes to benefit you specifically long-term while you carry on with all-out rekindling interstellar behaviours. The secret to piloting is persistence with...

    Personally I think this sort of thing might come eventually (am a KS backer and have been watching since before release). It's a while off though because we're still in the realm of player to player networking (2.3 Commanders) and vehicle in vehicle nesting (2.2 Guardians) etc etc. Some good ideas in here below but for the time being, you can (set up your own company) 'informally' if you're willing to group with other people, set up a free blog website etc. Unless handled with some care though, the minute it gets introduced formally in game, it's bound to go on rails, and is ultimately less flexible than the roleplayed version can ever be. The more interesting people can make their groups in the meantime though, the better the brainstorm and the better any game implementation ends up being later. Show us how it's done?

    Yep.. I use it all the time, except when I play in VR... apparently there is a way to make it work in VR, but I havn't had a look at that yet.

    I noticed that if I connected to a server starting with IP 54.xxx.xxx.xxx I generally have no problems. If I connect to a server starting with an IP that is NOT 54.xxx.xxx.xxx I start to experience these issues. I have yet to confirm it, I have just started to take note of connection IP since I started encountering these problems (to have more info for when I log a ticket with FD) (IP visible bottom left of main menu).

    I REALLY want this to appear on Galnet, especially given API-gate yesterday.

    Possibly? CG's definitely give you a reason to read Galnet, bring you into contact at least, with other player Commanders which makes life 'interesting' even if you're only blockade running and not winging up with them. Best way to understand Engineers is to visit one I'd say. Farseer is probably a decent first stop because jump range boosts and thruster upgrades are good for all forms of play. Which brings me to a question? Are you looking to bounty hunt? Or a mix? Or why were you fixed on O and B class stars? I think you had it right with looking for a home faction to promote really, especially if you like to mix up the gameplay driven by BGS events and maybe if you had found a base before things might have been different. Try a different criteria maybe? I could certainly suggest a prison colony system that 'needs' to have a fanatical religious sect (or a greedy corporation) in charge.

    I'm saying a production economy is ultimately more resilient than a service based one and that now is the time, because I also think you should prefer local food over imports, for the simple reason of food miles, and obtaining transport fuel in the medium future. I think we'll see more food grown in the UK and that will also develop the social underclasses away from a culture where there's not much else to do but stab each other. Are cheap calories necessarily a good thing for instance?
