    Indeed. They have fuel - they'll also have repair - you don't. Any questions? :)

    I 100% agree with all of this.

    I'd rather not risk the wrath of the forum gods and post it here. Also, I'd have to go looking for it again - it happened a while back - last year I think? I'll have a search and if I find it I'll PM it to you. Nice story :) In my incident, I wasn't bothered too much because I'd just turned Elite in exploration back then, and just got access to Shinrarta Dezhra, and was merely taking the Clipper out on a wee run to somewhere I hadn't fully explored before, nearby the bubble, and back. So nothing much was lost and it proved to be a valuable learning experience - lemonade from lemons and all that. But yeah, it definitely would have been a tough break if I'd have been carrying 280 million spacebucks worth of data. It might have taken a little bit longer to have recovered from something like that ;)

    Well. My point is - I'm sad to see the guy be so badly affected by the dogpiling he underwent on Reddit for it. On the other hand, if it were me, I'd have pulled my britches up and just continued to play, treating the event as a learning experience and moving on. I mean, the hate was terribad at the time, but nonsense like that is just that - a bit of heat and flame for a day or two and it'll all blow over, because it doesn't take long for the next internet drama to happen. To be so badly affected by a mistake made whilst playing <Generic Space Game>... perhaps one should have some introspection and decide whether or not it's even worth bothering about. Having had an exploration ship I was flying back to Jameson Memorial blown up by a PvP Pro Bro myself, after a moment of outrage I looked at the event and why it happened, and decided that I was in fact to blame for my ship blowing up - many mistakes were made by me. I panicked. I thought my ExploraClipper could boost away ( they were also in a...

    I only know of one player who was literally hated out of playing this game - they combat logged at Sag. A* and regretted it. Personally, I liked the guy and have him on my friendslist, and it was sad to see them go.

    I'd like to suggest that any person who gets psychologically harmed if their virtual pixel spaceship gets blown up, should step away from their PC or games console and not play another game, and should, perhaps, even seek advice from a mental health professional at their earliest convenience. Now I'm the first to admit that I might feel a little bit irritated and sad if my precious Anaconda and its rather nice crewmember were obliterated. But that would be a fleeting moment. I might take a break for a minute or three, or move on to some other activity for a bit. But I'm damned sure it's going to be treated as a learning experience rather than the worst torment to ever happen to me :)

    I know you *want* to encourage microtransactions, but perhaps it would be worth having a config file lock flag to disable 'shopper mode' for kids playing ED?

    Is there any way to get a dump of all cosmetics owned? I have a lot of them. I can review my old order emails for purchases or (EDIT) view orders in the Frontier Store, but for items from various community events, freebie special offers, beta participation, black friday, freagle, golden asp, CG gold sidewinder, and livestreams I've participated in, there is no way to see what I have obtained, so it's hard to look for bugs in the listings provided by the game client.
