    I just checked in on one of the Colonia CGs - 18 participants. Calling it a "community" goal is a bit generous, I'd say ;)

    The question (and answer) is not useless to me. I'm a PS4 console player with zero investment in the XBox platform. Because Frontier is currently screwing up ED on the PS4, I find myself looking at alternatives. The XBox One X is an alternative, but then again, so is a PC. For that matter, I thought Microsoft was working on making all XBox One games playable on PC. If that's true, and I haven't misread, then comparing the XBox One X to a PC for the sake of answering the personal question, "which should I buy?" doesn't seem so far off topic. That said, I'll probably just stick to my PS4 and hope that FDev eventually learns how to write software for it :p

    Believe me, I don't doubt you. I know what it's like to have to deal with bugs that a percentage of other people are blessed not to have. I'm just reporting what I am seeing for the sake of the developer team (as they say, "Just the facts, ma'am.")

    Being able "in seconds" to nominate a better anarchy faction candidate is only possible through your extensive embedding in the area. It it takes a huge amount of time and detail sifting to come to an understanding of a region. I got VR recently and discovered a wealth of information about AEDC and wider Alliance systems in a half hour in the GalMap. But that's because I care about the systems. I've fought alongside my team for particular assets. I've attacked our enemies, investigated our neighbours, and visited our friends. But unless you devote time to bookmarks and lookups and chatting to others working the region, it's completely opaque from the GalMap.

    It's been "no more ED for me" since 2.4 dropped. I may log in today just to try out this mission board bug. It's sad that my sole purpose in playing ED lately is to find bugs, and I ain't talking Thargoids (which I've totally given up on).... -- UPDATE -- I'm getting a delay in loading missions, but it's not as bad for me as others are reporting. As far as I can tell, I'm getting the full mission list. One interesting tidbit is that if I exit the mission screen and immediately go back to it, the delay remains - so there is apparently no caching going on, OR the delay is not network-related after all.

    Old Duck replied to a thread PS4 VR in PlayStation 4
    Did I read somewhere that XBox One X might / will support PC VR headsets like the Rift? I honestly think that's the platform that will get the most love first, if for no other reason than it's the platform (Windows & DirectX) that FDev is familiar with. We already know XB1X will get ED 4K, whereas there's been no mention of this for the PS4 Pro. Not that this helps anyone who already owns the Pro and PSVR, but for someone like me who owns neither, we might be drawn in this direction...

    Did you have "Report crimes against me" turned on? If not, then an attacker won't switch to WANTED when they shoot you, and you'll get a bounty for firing on / killing a clean ship. It's kinda dumb, but I'm pretty sure that's just how it works.

    Frank replied to a thread PS4 VR in PlayStation 4
    I don't think your question merits SpaceMachine's reply seeing as Frontier Developments were looking into the possibility of PSVR. David Braben has had previous with getting games to work on improbable hardware. But that was a while back, and there hasn't been any word since. I really really doubt that the game could be optimised well enough to allow PSVR on moon buggy rides. I'd suggest you bite the bullet and go for PC-based VR, as long as you don't blame me if a PSVR version of Elite is released right after you've made your purchases. PC VR will be better the PSVR anyway, as PCs can take advantage of incremental upgrades.

    I Probably wasn't clear. I'm not talking about player tools. I'm talking about tools for the Frontier loremasters. The PowerPlay map is an example of the public facing version of a thing I am imagining. Imagine like a proper loremaster. Like a DM/GM. Someone unconcerned by the details of the code, but who needs excellent tracking and visualization tools to be able to manage a responsive narrative based on what's really going on. Super granular detail when needed. Big picture overviews when needed. But it none of this would have to be developed to a bug-free, pretty, in-game, public facing thing.

    Base your expectations on what they announce and release, not things they specifically said are "definitely not yet" to avoid disappointment. There's also stuff in your list they've fixed already.

    You know how space games are a niche and most dev's wont touch them, it's because of the finite number of people who will potentially buy in limiting profits. This means less cash being spent on our favorite genre. Why not allow people to buy ships or credits, don't sell rank or engineer modules/access so you keep the big two play locked but let people pay for the same sort of leg-up exploiters get from grinding Quince for a week or whatever. People have been taking short cuts for cash since Gamma to my knowledge, this wouldn't change that. I'm a space billionaire with big ships already none of this applies to me. However star citizen increasingly looks like a $150 million waste of space game money, which is probably more than has been spent on the genre as a whole in decades. Why not allow FDEV to put some of that to good use.
