    Thargoid replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    How do you know the timeline on this? Was it ALWAYS an INRA base? or did INRA take over it? Or has someone mocked it up to look like an INRA base? INRA were a major component of the story in FFE, and I tried to continue that in And Here The Wheel. . . I am watching this development with great interest!

    Wow. That is spectacular! Mind you, I'm easily pleased - I play 20 year old games and consider playing ED on everything on low/off to be spectacular.

    I posit that the broad POINT of ED is one that is unlike virtually any other game since the franchise started in 1984 which went along the same -albeit more compact- lines: That the point is player defined? The whole franchise from the very start has never really had -The Dark Wheel Aside- a particularly hard defined ongoing narrative, because it focuses so much on the individual player, who begins and starts very much as an outsider, right into the deep end, having to fend for himself. They become the story. I suspect FD introduced powers to encourage competitive exploration, when that didn't work much after players stuck with 'grind' around the old worlds (then complained it was grindy), FD introduced Guardians and weird artifacts / probes which seemed to help a little, and now return of Thargoids and now INRA, which fills in a lot of backstory yet is relatively baffling to non-veteran players? The point is You & your exploration, The point is it's a crucible for your own self generated...

    Indeed. Don't use EDH that much as vanilla ED limits missions to non surface ones which are far less folderol and faster to make cash.

    Cutter, will pay for itself quicker adn the jump range is far better. Failing that I suggest that you go for the one that will be easiest for you to unlock first, based on your current ranks and reputation

    That looks more like the 'Heart' or internal organ which was scooped in the latest trailer!

    I think going forward Horizons will be the last season to ever be released, I doubt that we will ever see a season 3 and that all future content will be purchased. for example being able to purchase a planetary landing module and being able to purchase access to engineers for those who don't own horizons. while those who own horizons will purchase a atmosphere module so they can get access to planets with an atmosphere. only guessing.

    A Valid question since frontier have changed how the game development will proceed. the only info frontier has given is in the below quote from Zac in another thread. Frontier have already released a road map for 2018 and your current LEP obviously includes what's coming in 2018. Looking into what zak says it sounds like that those who only purchased Horizons will have to purchase premium content, im guessing that squadron mobile bases will be among the first premium content and access to thargoid space being another possible area where players will have to purchase access, I wouldn't be surprised if they add purchases for cmdr save slots. im guessing that premium content wont go down the route of pay to win as that would kill the games userbase. the worrying thing is that Zac only mentions the Beyond series updates which we know is basically the 2018 road map, what happens after that is anyone's guess.

    I didn't know he'd picked up on it. For the record the post wasn't *just* about this, was more a 'most recent example'. But there is an element of ownership and entitlement where some people think if you aren't doing it their way, you're doing it wrong.

    With regards to the thread about Lavecon I was told to contact you directly. I understand you're looking for volunteers to help out? Let me know if that's the case.

    Cheers,
