    Can't argue with this. The only reason to not do this is to make Xbox controllers more "equal" by effectively nerfing the potential of KBM/HOTAS. This is a terrible way to treat PC gamers though.

    I agree that they should be challenging, and I'm not worried about it getting too easy since I'm sure Frontier will just notch up the difficult with each new tool we get, just as they've already done. As for the wakes, you should read the descriptions on the materials you can collect from Thargoid corpses. ;)

    OP, I suspect the clunkiness lies between the chair and the desk. Sure it would be great if the device had a fire group, but it's WAY easier to use than an ECM. An ECM requires precise timing and counters a fast attack. The anti-EMP only requires charging. It's dead easy to use because the Thargoid EMPs are very predictable.

    I would be amazed if there's anything space based in the Hind Nebula, considering the Asteroid Base there the system has been visited a lot this last year.

    Again, my experience differs; out of the dozen plus such missions I've done over the past 2-3 days, only once have I had such an occurrence (and you can jump out to orbital cruise and back in again, rather than re-logging). Admittedly I've only had two or three stacked at a time. Personally I'm just pleased to see that since 2.4, multiple missions to the same system will actually send you to different targets, and different planets/moons, rather than all sending you to the same place!

    This does not match my own experience. Over the past 2-3 days I have done maybe a dozen planetary surface scan missions, all for a faction currently at peace (and with which I am allied). Payouts have ranged from 200k to 3.1m, and in probably around two-thirds of cases the target has been defended with trespass zone, skimmers and defence turrets. It sounds like OP may just have had a bad patch of RNG.

    Good. If you can defend and counter all the weapons they have, then it makes the whole thing rather pointless. They should be a challenge if you want to try and fight them. I don't think we'll be getting a way of following their wakes anytime soon, or probably, anytime.

    Ozric replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    Well it's hard as they're 218Mb each :p However this is a crop of one and if you zoom right in you'll notice how the metal fixings don't lose any quality, but the writing's already blurred. I can't see anything behind the writing though, maybe it's cause the lighting's different but I don't think so. Click the picture to get a fullscreen version.

    Ozric replied to a thread INRA Base Discoveries in Aliens
    I doubt you'll get them to be honest, the writing is deliberately blurred. I take my screenshots at 6k resolution and you still can't read what they say. I only managed to make out water and coffee beans when I first posted that picture, didn't notice toilet roll, but I'm glad they had some at least :D

    Connectivity and other issues aside, how the turret got implemented didn't seem as arcadey and cheap as it seemed to be at first glance. Now, that's not to say I think it's good design, because when it came out I recall some hastily constructed explanation of how it worked (a "camera drone"? righhht.) that indicated they didn't actually think it through like the whole telepresence thing. But a third person turret view actually makes a lot of sense for a gunner trying to aim from a platform that might be moving in three different directions at once. Now, if you grew up in the past 40 years, this is what you wanted from being a spaceship gunner: But during that fight the Millennium Falcon didn't maneuver at all and flew straight and level while the Tie Fighters made strafing runs around it. Like the other dogfights in Star Wars, it was WWII style fighters vs a bomber. How hard would it have been able to aim, let alone see anything if the Falcon were jinking and dodging every which way? The turrets...

    Would LOVE to be able to fly an untethered SLF! Especially if we could engineer it a little. Not much, just enough to make it a little more durable and with better power distribution. Maybe get some experimental effects like corrosion, concordant sequence, etc. Maybe limit it to having only Super Cruise, so it requires a carrier ship in the system, or ship transfers to move around the galaxy.

    Respect for owning up to a mistake is traditional. Doubly so for offering up an apology as well.

    Here's an easy test for you or anybody, and anybody can play. (works for black knights too) Open up your post history. Look at the posts you've made. Count up how many times you've posted in a single thread, especially back and forth with another user who you disagree with in the span of a few minutes not actually trying to change the person's mind, but trying to show to the community that the other person is wrong, usually ending with "You should go play another game/This game isn't for you/You don't understand game design/Haters Just go away" as a mic drop. (And on the flip side, "Frontier sucks/Frontier Sux/Frontier Suxxxxx/Fanboyz Go Away") If you've got more than just a few posts in your history that all say the same thing in a bunch of different threads to rebut someone else's criticism of the game... If you just can't let it go when you see a negative as you're browsing the forums and have to reply... you might be a White Knight. Same is true for the haters. If you look in your post history...
