    They will have undoubtedly defined a handcrafted algorithmic procedure for the optimum mentions of subsumption to achieve a level of unprecedented fidelity to the Vision!

    The beauty of procedural generation .. unless you're within sight of them, there could be a billion blades of grass, but the engine just ignores them, too far away to care. The flipside is you need a good number of ways to interact (and large enough number of assets to try to avoid same-ness) but all objects and levers must come in 'classes'. It's also why (I believe) this stage we're at now is a bit painfully slow ... FD need to be confident that you can hit the wall of the outpost, interact with the datapoint, shoot that barnacle, as these are basic classes of object that can be morphed into something else at a later date. Object classes going in at this stage though means FD need to predict the future. I'm sure a lot of effort goes into making sure you can morph a barnacle into a tiger, or the stellar forge will run into big trouble later.

    Same thing happened with my X52. Unplug it, download and run the installer, plug into a different USB port. I think some windows update made a mess of things. Good luck with it!

    Oh yeah, blimey! Murder is illegal. You are allowed to kill other ships but only in circumstances where they are wanted (and have a bounty on them) or in a war situation. Target a ship, point your nose at it and wait for a passive scan to finish. You'll get their name, rank and an indication, bottom left in your HUD, clean = no bounty (don't shoot) .. wanted = you can kill them and claim a bounty, under contacts in most major stations. There is a special piece of equipment, Kill Warrant Scanner that you can also use to scan wanted ships. This often gives more payout because bounties can be issued locally, or galaxy wide. A KWS scan means you get paid both. (As I mentioned wars; civil wars happen between local factions as they vie for power. When there's a civil war, combat zones crop up and when you drop into one, approach it like you do to any station, you need to pick a side (right panel, functions tab under 'faction'.) Shoot only red blips (opposing faction) and claim vouchers, again under...

    This is not propaganda, you are not informed enough. Manuel Valls the French Prime Minister, and other European politicians had criticized Merkel for her irresponsible calls. Even the political party of Merkel was against and even the German people were beginning to be saturated. You are of dishonest bad faith. Can you please for the love of god stop denying the reality

    I don't know about that actually. In a thousand years Earth will, quite realistically, be almost unrecognisable (especially after the Nuclear wars of the twenty fifth, Hyper Tsunami's of the twenty ninth century, and so on). Just 100 years ago the car was a fairly novel idea? I think it will be open world, like it is now but that's why Earthlikes are a way off. I think we might see mega fauna on ammonia worlds etc., we're already seeing evidence of Thargoids. I hope there will be a monorail system .. and I DO want to hunt rare beasts to the edge of extinction for their priceless toenails, throwing the rest of their inedible bodies away, just for the big game hunter wastage of it.

    I suspect it wouldn't help development come faster anyway. Frontier would have to maintain a number of different builds and that takes more resourcing away from pure design, while the basic game (in your model) would be asked to share assets (some assets .. not that one .. and this asset is shared by exploration, mining and pew-pew but not by trading and Tharg hunting etc, etc .. and etc. .. YUCK! Said programmers .. everywhere) The spiritual version ; For me one major draw of ED is the diversity of interests different people have, while all sharing the same environment. I'm basically peaceful in the game but I still love that shenagians are going on elsewhere, fuel rats here, CG's there, giving the environment flavour and knowing that any person could move into any other thing at any time and so could I even if I don't want to! I'm looking for the right word here but 'sterility' springs to mind when losing that. I have lifetime expansion pass so would make no difference but this kind of career...

    That happens all the time in some games like Call of Duty. Either ignore it or block a person if it bothers you.

    Well-designed and standards compliant PSU's are :D Some of the cheapies I've seen over the years were so badly designed or specced, or made from obviously rejected or pulled components, that the only reasonable thing to do with them was put them straight into electrical scrap. Some off-brand PSU's are simply genuinely dangerous.

    We'll get an hour-long demonstration of SQ42, some wonderful teasers, an introduction to the rich characters and finely-crafted script, a Morrow Tour Remastered, and a free-fly weekend with a 30 minute playable demo of the SQ42 level :D Or... We'll get more waffle, magnificent hand-waving, another strong foundation completed in order to build a tool to rapidly ramp up concepts of the Vision, ship sales of game-changing Whatevers that punch above their weight, and another majestic glimpse into the skunk-works Magic World of Handbags MMO they've been working on for quite some time.

    I'm a Ben in real life and you can believe 'Mr Benn', confused the heck out of me as a small child. (Though it did make more sense when I visited Japan, much later, Tuub san) I hope Mr Benn, The Game by Frontier Developments .. will bring 21st Century standards of hygiene though Seriously because in all that time, and after all those adventures he never ONCE changed his underpants!
