    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

    Forgive my ignorance but could you expand upon this further? I assume you mean evasion of a combat action due to waking out of danger. Am I correct in this? Also, I'd be very interested to read your definitions of harm in or to the game. How do you quantify it?

    The harm is to the environment of open mode itself, not necessarily the ego or sentiments of an individual Cmdr. Clogging has been stated as a cheat and that overrides anyone's interpretation of personal 'values'; be they ethics, morals or any other justification of an exception to a rule. Other play modes exist for those who dislike the flavor of the open environment, including the highly popular Mobius. To see someone clogging on you, blatantly cheating the game in your instance, is a deflating gameplay experience for me. It's also demoralizing in terms of having accepted the conditions and risks of open mode from other players only to see that belittled by a cheater. I hope Clogging is the next exploit that comes under scrutiny and has actions implemented to address it - especially in open mode.

    That is a very serious accusation to make. I would suggest you think very carefully before making any other such claims.

    Ah, that's a very good point actually. Pre-engineers things were much more of a balancing act. Now its more just a case of getting the right upgrades. Still, can't complain, it does allow for some crazy builds ;)

    Can I just mention for potential VR users who need reading glasses (I am one with a +2.00 Dioptre) and are unsure about how the Rift will be, you probably won't need to wear them. I don't and everything is in perfect focus. Buy one, you will not regret it.

    Wer sich von den Weiten des Alls erholen möchte, dem sei mein ARK sever mit der Map Ragnorak nahe gelegt, der über den folgenden Link steam://connect/176.57.169.156:27016/ rund um die Uhr betreten werden kann. Ein PVE server, den ich mit netten Einstellungen für Anfänger eingerichtet habe. 8 slots sind derzeit frei...kostet natürlich nichts.

    Are they? Well, call me skeptical. I'll believe it when i see it. I think they will be back in action once they get their ships kitted out again.

    Presume i would have to read an article or something to understand what some of these mean Fighting against human nature is a losing battle - True. Especially true when it comes to the forums. Aesthetics matter - ED nails this Resonance is important - Not sure what is meant here? Whether the game resonates with players? In that case, for me, yeah, ED does that. Make use of piggybacking - No idea. Don't confuse "interesting" with "fun" - Good point. Although both are good. I find ED both fun and interesting. Understand what emotion your game is trying to evoke - ED: Scale, sense of awe, wonder, mystery, loneliness, danger. Allow the players the ability to make the game personal - Depends on what they mean. Solo mode? A connection with the character?

    It will affect everyone, "it's just not important" and having you think about cutting your hedge, when your cost of living could explode to the level where you drop from "middle class" to "the poor" in your lifetime is a nice way of screwing you over. *) "Don't think twice, it's all right". "you're either in or you're not, no messing about" is May rhetoric. That woman is a complete fail as a politician (as well as your press a disgrace *2) ), since instead of explaining in plain terms what her "hard brexit" means, she waffles on buzzword bingo words. Maybot. Oops sorry cut out some of your quote! but the essence is there am replying to :) Yep its not that important(and you haven't seen that hedge! ;) I get ya, i get the ramifications if it all goes wrong but what else would you like me to do, leaflet campaign? send a strongly worded e/mail to my local MP? we had elections/referendums and i go along with the results, thats democracy for ya, you might not like the outcome, you might not like our...

    The opinions of forum mods regarding exploits are about as relevant as the opinions of any other players. The only opinion that matters is that of FD. When we are not sure, we will ask FD for their opinion, usually one of the CMs. If in doubt as to whether something is an exploit, do not publish it.
