    With the blocking feature now so much under discussion as well, Open is also not exactly the same open for everyone on the same platform. So even Open within a single platform is more fragmented.

    Its an interesting feature, and especially interesting reading how on xbox its built into the platform as a whole. So even if people are against the block feature on principle, no way is that going to change for xboxers anyway. From my perspective then, its either fly in group and ensure i only meet up with people i know i can trust to not grief/gank (at least theoretically - the larger the group, the greater the chance of someone slipping in), or fly in open and start cultivating a block list when someone does something against my ship that i personally feel is not in the spirit of the game. A more amusing thought is with this, people really should stop saying "I fly in open" now as some sort of status. They probably need to add to that "... and have zero CMDRs on my block list" :D

    Good post Kaim. Being "hardcore" is not something that interests me in ED (or indeed most games). I play games for fun, and for me, being hardcore at a game means it becomes too much like work, and in ED especially, it leads to grind, and i hate grind. Advice to git gud is useless to me, i've no real interest in gitting gud at ED. Games with direct PvP engagement and competitiveness built in from the ground up, sure, i enjoy gitting gud at those (although at my best i'm usually nowhere near top tier, but can compete at least) as there is usually no grind for upgrades or improvements, just dive in and compete. Even so, i rarely play those games to hardcore levels either. Just a nice bit of fun away from more slow paced games. At the end of the day, i just want to pootle around a spaceship.

    If you are using the high grade signal source method, make sure you are not doing it in a system which has other spawns in high grade signal sources. Especially Imperial or Fed systems, because the spawn tables will be competing with Core Dynamic Composites or Imperial Shielding for drops.

    Juniper replied to a thread Sag.A trip in PlayStation 4
    For me it's all about getting the maximum range on the FSD. Less weight = more range. An extra lightyear here or there can make all the difference in a long trip in terms of the number of jumps. If you have a decent scoop (and I wouldn't venture out without the biggest A class scoop you can get), you can more or less fill your tank automatically as you swoop round the star to line up for the next jump target. Truthfully, the hardest thing about getting to Sag. A is boredom.

    Ok, as we're talking about eyes (and the original question was answered) ... why do eyes see upside-down and the brain flip it the right way up? Why doesn't the eye just see the right way up to begin with? EDIT: Yes, I know it's because the lens flips the image ... my question is why doesn't the eye do ... something ... to make the image the right way up and save the brain some work? And don't resort to "Evolution".

    I think the concept of the concept is awesome. As i've heard more and more from CIG, the less i find the concept appealing. On top of that, the whole thing about the lore and naming is the sort of think that might have been come up by a 10 year old. Example, calling a planet Terra. Yeah, i had my own imaginary universe when i was about 10 with a planet called Terra in it (come on, admit it, most of us did... unless I was strange... no, its not me! Its everyone else!). Ahem. I think this is perhaps where CR is getting a lot of his momentum from. He is looking to make that 10 year old boy dream come true. It might work... if they can turn the concept into something that resembles what many of us imagined. But reality is a harsh mistress at times.
