    Try going to one of the starports nearby - the Planetary Landing Suite should be available at any of them, I think. EDIT: Unsure if the starports around Maia have Outfitting though.

    Opinions vary on that, given that it would affect all players* in Open.... :) *: that might want to visit player populated areas.

    Whether it is correct (or not) rather depends on one's opinion regarding direct PvP and the ability to completely avoid it in this game. Equal in the sense that, if there are 100,000 players in Open then that equates to an average of 1 player per 4,000,000 systems - and, at the very least, 399,999,900,000 of those systems would be empty. The point being that the risk is only increased when there is more than one player in an instance and there is the likelihood of hostility between those present. The fact that Frontier has stuck to their chosen design for the game throughout development and past release is the reason that there are an ever increasing number of these threads - started by players whose preferred play-style may be affected by the freedoms afforded to all players.

    Nice bug :) Did you try starting the game in non-Horizons mode? That should get you off the planet.

    Exactly. I drove in a straight line from the gate for 79 kilometers and found a metallic meteorite. Coincidence? I think not!

    Another example of leftist violence can be seen in the case of former UC Berkeley professor Ted Kaczynski, AKA "The Unabomber". He espoused a philosophy of anti-industrialism and the return to a more basic eco-friendly anarchic lifestyle. His bombs killed 3 and injured 23.

    I like the graphics, I like the sound, but the author said "there's no enemy to shoot at" or somesuch. The gameplay looks to be nothing more than driving/flying your Round Thing around different planets. There's probably a lot of people for whom this game will appeal to, that's for sure. To my jaundiced eyes, though, the first thing that came to mind when watching the albeit pleasant video, was... A game which I did play for a bit, in days of yore ;)

    Tree spiking comes to mind as a particularly violent tactic that has been used by certain left-wing environmentalist extremists. Though I think they disavowed the tactic after the first human casualty. There were some violent protests following the recent Presidential election in the United States though, to be honest, most of that violence was directed at inanimate objects (breaking windows for example) and not toward harming people.

    I'm curious too, about these progressive attacks. Knifings and mass shootings one supposes. Or does Lysander feel that they are emotionally attacking him perhaps.

    Little things could go a long way. Imagine taking a mission to assassinate an Elite combateer named "Harry Blowhard". The mission goes according to plan and you get paid. The next day you get attacked by a wing of three competent NPCs and are shocked when you see their names: Amy Blowhard, George Blowhard and Tyrone Blowhard. Then the accompanying text: "You killed our father. There's no way you're getting away with this." It would be kind of fun if the game occasionally threw things at us to make us feel like our actions have long-running consequences.

    A lot of people are avoiding multicrew with strangers because it currently gives those strangers the power to get you a wanted flag real quick. A few black hats have take to joining multicrew sessions and deliberately attacking starports and system authorities as a new form of griefing. I believe that Frontier is working on a patch that will allow the helmsman to prevent multicrew participants from deploying hard points, etc. to allow the pilot some control over this kind of behavior.

    How about just condemning violent people? It's not the idea themselves that are generally at fault for the violence. Any idea, in the hands of a particularly unstable individual, can be used to kindle the fires of violence. I'm not particularly fond of the "thought police" and the criminalization of ideas. If your ideas lead you to violent acts or to incite others to violence then, yeah, you've got a problem.

    lol. Yeah, I usually fit the largest fuel scoop I can affix to my ship. I've timed my average hyperspace jump, scooping and all, to about one-and-a-half minutes. The amount of time that I'm required to actually pilot my ship during that time period is about 20 seconds. That gives me 70 seconds of snooze time. I'm ex-military. I can sleep standing up or even when marching. I'm on my what must be about my 7th trip to Colonia right now and believe me it's just as engaging as it sounds. Totally my choice of course but I really want my FAS out there and I'm not willing to pay the transfer cost. Given my current jump range it take about an hour to travel 1,000 light-years. That's a 22 hour trip. If I can sleep most of the way there then that's just a bonus ... especially since I work nights and weekends. Sleep is at a premium. I get it wherever and whenever I can. I never actually said anything about autopilot in my post. I simply pointed out that much of my playing Elite involved me NOT actually...

    Hmm well that's odd! Do you have a different DPI setting from 96? CL2 (and CL1) use Qt4, which isn't fantastic when it comes to handling DPI. It's been an annoyance for me for a long time. Qt is a fantastic GUI toolkit and I love it to bits, but boy it's annoying when it comes to different screen resolutions and/or DPI!

    Seriously dude. If on death I have to grind all my materials again just so I can then spend another few hours grinding around half a dozen engineers that are scattered around the galaxy to get my ship back. All that so I can then go back to doing what I was enjoying before my unfortunate demise, that sounds like a true awful gaming experience.

    Why would they? The added risk due to other players only affects a vanishingly small proportion of the galaxy - therefore a blanket bonus for one mode would almost always be incorrectly applied. .... and Frontier are on record, several times now, stating that the game modes are equal and valid (and that they know that not all players agree).
