    If so, there really isn't any reason at all that Frontier cannot still include a "honk" for this function. :) And heck, they might even add something better, to improve the entire process.

    Was aware of the first thread, not the second. First thread seemed to have died out a bit and I didn't feel like necro'ing it. It would be nice to consolidate everything into one place though.

    Could you detail some of these wider utilities, what can the ADS be used for outside of discovering planets?

    A few other points that are confirmed: 1) MB has confirmed Raxxla is in-game 2) He and DB know where it is 3) No further clues will be given Another tidbit of personal theory: Since Raxxla was supposed to have been reachable ages ago with very early jump-drive tech, I believe it might actually be closer to the bubble than people think. It may be a rogue planet in a star system that for whatever reason doesn't show up with an ADS honk, and needs to be found in a similar fashion to some other discoveries (example: Generation ships). We need a point of origin, and a direction, and then need to fly out tens of thousands of LS until it appears in the NAV panel.

    And now ... pure conjecture. The Drake Equation and the Fermi Paradox. Why is the Elite universe so devoid of intelligent alien life? It is my belief that some members of The Dark Wheel discovered Raxxla in some alternate universe ... a universe where the myriad species of aliens that occupied the galaxies of the original Elite actually existed. They employed the Talmor Lens to send themselves, and Raxxla, back in time. Way back. To when life was only beginning to emerge in The Milky Way. They had seen what the Thargoids had done to humanity ... and began extinguishing any lifeforms that evolved sapience on other worlds to ensure mankind would dominate ... but they weren't able to extinguish the Thargoids themselves. Now mankind stands alone against this ancient threat. Alien species that could have joined us as allies were killed in crib, so to speak. The galaxy is empty because we emptied it. ... and this is why finding Raxxla is so important. It's like a great big "reset" switch that will restore...

    Was looking back over some old videos, and it's unbelievable that almost 3 years on and the combat/flight model still hasn't changed from this early nonsense: I mean, 3 years! When Arena Commander was specifically sold as to be used by CIG to nail down the flight/combat mechanics, there has been literally no improvement, with the ships all still handling like noclip cameras with a cockpit glued to the front.

    Steven Eisler's (AKA Robert Holdstock) The Alien World also contains a description of "The Dark Wheel". I'll have to transcribe that section and post it as well. Here's a summary: There was a human colony ship that fell into an area of space that caused them to emerge in a far off spiral galaxy far in the past. This galaxy, The Dark Wheel, was hidden from view of the Sol by clouds of gas and dust. If memory serves me correctly descendants of The Dark Wheel returned to the Milky Way and Earth to help shepherd their ancestors through time ... acting as guardians to ensure that, at the right time, that colony ship would indeed launch ... creating a causal loop paradox.

    A guide to what we know and what we think we know. Raxxla. To some it is a mystery. To others a mere folly. What is it, where is it and why does it even matter? When it comes to Raxxla separating fact from fiction is extremely difficult. Almost all of what we know about this mysterious place (if it is a place) is apocryphal at best ... it is therefore essential to begin with what we know to be true and then work our way from there through the legends before embarking into conjecture.

    Thing is Allchemyst Religion is off topic and it not needed on Frontier Forums. It could cause a heated discussion between you and people of any religion Faith and I will not be in the middle of that. It don't matter if it was middle ages or today. Religion is a touchy subject and I will not touch it. Thing is Allchemyst all I been doing is pointing out common sense skills and ideas Let me show them to you again. 1 Radar. Use to locate Clean and Police or security ships or Pirates. 2 Sound. Stereo or Surround sound can tell you a lot like ships next to you if they are right or left of you. Better setup like surround sound Behind you or in front of you. Mono could make combat hard on you. A cheap pair of headsets could help you a lot. 3 Visual also helps Playing around with Headlock mode or VR Tracker or other means you can view what other ships are doing around you. Some just use the forward view only which could cause more issue then not.

    To the Commander who interdicted me in the Wyrd System for an 'inspection', claimed I was a pirate, and then tried to kill me.... That was fun. :) I had not been up this way in the bubble for awhile, but I had recently unlocked the Dweller despite not really trying to and and I figured.... 'eh.... what the heck'. I went up to check out what was what. I leave his base and find you orbiting the planet. You send me a message saying I have to submit. Naturally I go on my merry way. You message again. I send off some taunt and then you start to interdict me. Nice. My blood is pumping now. :) I try to defeat the interdiction, but alas I fail... I try to fight a bit but it's obvious I'm really out-classed here. Not only is my Clipper not set up for PvP, but I'm terrible at PvP anyway. :D However, I manage to low wake out. (yeah yeah.... I didn't high wake). Of course you immediately do the same thing again. Again I try to fight it, and again I'm pulled down.

    It's interesting to see Congress finally starting (in baby steps) to assert some degree of checks on this administration. At the very least it shows that they're trying to build up the guardrails of our institutional democracy so that the president can't just drive us all over the cliff. Shows what they think of his character....

    Hi Drew,

    Thank you so much for all your involvement with Elite Dangerous and the recent Salome event. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the twists, plots and clues here on the forums and in game that you have been involved with, they have added greatly to my enjoyment of the game and added considerable depth to it.

    Good luck in the future and I hope to see your continued participation in this great game, I have enjoyed since 1985.

  2. Howdy! I just finished your first ED book (I bought ebook and Audible) and enjoyed it very much. I'm a PS4 owner, so your book was a great intro to ED universe while I wait my turn to climb into the cockpit. Thanks!

    I think I've come really close to getting inside.... something in the rift. Something thought to be possibly unreachable (pre-Horizons Xbox One)
