    With the latter comes the former - which is why neither is likely to be forced upon the player-base, in my opinion. Nope. PvE. There are two multi-player game modes in the game and neither of them is PvE (exclusively) - Private Groups are only PvE only by agreement, not by in-game rules.

    It is easy - because one of the aims is so obvious - entice more players to play in Open (to be targets for players that like to shoot at players). If we're trying to get more people to play together then removing the membership limits on Private Groups or introduce an Open-PvE mode for those that so obviously seek one....

    The modes debate has been ongoing for as long as some players realised that other players would be able to play without being interfered with - that's nearly five years now. The game accommodates both players that like PvP and those that don't. (Direct) PvP is optional in this game. Frontier would also seem to be well aware that the majority of players do not get involved in PvP....

    The aim of this thread seems rather clear - that Solo and Private Group play should be hobbled to attempt to force players that want to interact with the BGS / CGs / PowerPlay / Factions to play in Open. Anyone can create a Player Group, with or without a Private Group, and attempt to attract players. There seems to be a need to find a solution to a problem that only some players consider to be a problem - for other players it's a feature.

    The text I quoted said "multiplayer mode", of which there are two. The membership limit for a Private Group on PC/Mac is 20,000 - that's pretty large.... I believe that the Private Group membership limit on XB1/PS4 is 1,000 - which is still fairly large. Bear in mind that any player can create a Private Group and invite no-one else into it - effectively making another Solo mode. Frontier consciously implemented CGs, PowerPlay, Wings and Multi-Crew in all of the modes where such play was possible (i.e. no Wings or Multi-Crew in Solo - yet - we still await NPC crew / Wingmen), not just in Open. .... and any player group can request that a Faction is inserted into the game, not just player groups that prefer to play in Open.

    No progress on the code side of things at all, I'm sorry to say - too busy in RL and playing the game in free time. It's still on the to-do-list though.

    If Frontier were to ever introduce a mode lock for our CMDRs then mine would be locked to Private Groups - all the benefits of multi-player (play in a large Private Group or even several) and also the ability to play Solo (create a personal Private Group and don't invite anyone to play in it....).

    Frontier would not seem to agree. There's a Dev quote that's relevant here: .... and another, even more succinct:

    Thanks for all your contributions and creations Drew! Hope to see you back with another Elite book at some point in time or maybe in game storyline similar to the Premonition one. Loved it! :) All the best sir.

    Folks, As some of you will know I wrote some lore articles for ED as part of my process for generating Reclamation and Premonition. With my focus on my books now I don't have time to maintain this anymore and their purpose has been overtaken by youtube, twitch and wikis. Canonn Research have kindly agreed to host copies and you can find them here > https://canonn.science/game-lore/ I'm now leaving the future commentary on the lore to Obsidian Ant, DJ TruthSayer, Dave Hughes and the Wiki. I think it's in safe hands! For those of you who were after my unofficial Oolite Saga fan-fic (all written long before Elite Dangerous was a thing, but which now dovetails into both of my official books) that too has been archived. It's now hosted by CMDR Ascorbius. > https://www.ascorbius.com/drewwagaroolite
