    Today my lovely daughter Abbie took part in the Race for Life - Pretty Muddy 2017. As I'm a forum mod I din't advertise this on the forum but mentioned it on the Discord Channel we lurk in.... I should have known..... :D Thanks to the amazing generosity of the Mod team, Frontier, the Hutton Orbital Truckers , the Abrakadrabblers and some of the forum posters she raised an amazing... £516.00 including gift aid which took it to over £500

    Good Catch. I can't believe I called them Intrepid class? There is no Intrepid class in ED. *Gives Himself a slap*

    I did complain about it at the time as I thought it was 'too easy', but they didn't change it. :) There would have also been an uproar if achievements in gamma were reset for the official launch, thus it stayed. Cheers, Drew.

    I just looked up the genesis of the idea behind the Formidine Rift - couldn't remember myself after all this time. It was a post in the private writers forum, dated 01/09/2013 at 9:18 am. Michael Brookes had asked for candidates for background legends and myths in the Elite Dangerous universe, much like Raxxla was in the original game. All the writers had access to it and then the option to include it in their books if they desired. There were others too, such as the Lave stuff and Soontill bits and pieces. Below is a copy of that post. It's what I pitched at the time. It was modified a lot afterwards of course - at that point we didn't even have a starmap. Interesting to note the original location was towards the core. We changed it later because hyperspace transit turned out to be much faster than expected when the game eventually came out (someone got to Sag A* in the gamma). At the time we were led to believe a 1000 lightyears would be a massive trek, but that was quickly dismissed. I didn''t know the...

    drew replied to a thread Salome Reborn! in Dangerous Discussion
    Complete nonsense. I made reference to SDC in a tweet during November I believe. This was actually in reference to the exploration CG that was running at the time between the Federation and the CoR. SDC had informed me that they intended to kill explorers involved. I replied that their behaviour was their business. I did not request or endorse the behaviour, but I I noted it for the book because it was occurring. Perhaps I should not have tweeted about it, but I did. I did join the SDC discord channel prior to the Salomé event, mostly as research to understand a little better how they operated. I couldn't understand most of it as it was a level of english so far below my ability to comprehend. I did offer to talk with them and offered my email address to start a conversation. That offer was never taken up. My intention once again was to understand more of how they operated as I assumed they would take part in the event. That was a my complete and total interaction with SDC over the entire year. My...

    Does anyone have any good tips for playing this? It's really fun, but man is it difficult for me to wrap my head around! A good starter guide would be awesome, as the in-game tutorial is quite spartan. I'm getting my rear handed to me even during the really early war engagements in like 1936/37 which (I would assume) would not be that challenging. I played Japan last night and basically got stalled trying to invade China. Since this was one if the first things you can do in the national focus tree I figure I must be doing something seriously wrong! :)

    I put this exact question to Drew when I was interviewing him for Lave Radio. You'll get his answer when I've finished editing it. (Probably sometime next week) ;-)
