    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.

    Heh! Well, I remained steadfast in my support for years, but lately I've felt progressively more pessimistic about the project. I suppose everyone has their own 'breaking point'. Gamescom 2017 was it for me. I'll happily put down cash when it's released and we can play an actual fun & working game. Until then... 'peace, out!' and all....

    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.

    ATC NPCs with decision trees and animations? I think the game has enough pie in the sky goals already. :rolleyes:

    I get the impression that having permit locks on bubble systems is mainly just because there needed to be some rewards to attach to faction rep grinding (aside from a couple of ships anyway). Well, that and it was a mechanic that existed in at least Frontier: Elite 2. It doesn't add much in and of itself, no.

    That's funny since my entry into the franchise started with FE2. I never played Elite. FE2, though, I enjoyed. :) Played it a bunch.

    Does this PSA fall under the new no-PSA rule? (tightens grip on ban hammer) ;)

    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...
