    Welcome to the game commander :) One thing the docking tutorial doesn't make clear (iirc) is that you have to be facing the right way before you can land on the pad. If you are in a station this will be facing the back wall. As you get close to the pad (with landing gear down), your scanner display will change to a landing display showing your ship and the pad (hopefully underneath you). Have a look at this: Of course, in reality, it's more like this:

    I wasn't being entirely serious at the time, but now I think about it, you can glue it to a couple of bits of plywood and drill holes in that for mounting. Hot glue is relatively easy to remove if you want to take them off later as well.

    <stares disbelievingly at all the hyperbolics> Right! When I were a lad... t'space were black and white. We didn't haave none o' that fancy landing on moons and 'aving fun driving about and all that. I 'ad t'Kempston joystick which were bitsa spring steel to give ya four digital inputs and a single fire button. If ye'weren't careful and tugged too 'ard on yer stick yer joystick interface'd wobble on yer expansion slot... an' coz the whole universe t'crash. I were one of the lucky ones what had t'tape machine. In t'morning ahd press "play" on machine. Then go ahff t'pits. Sixteen 'ours later ahd come back t'Spectrum, and it'd be almost loaded by then. T'telly would be filled wi' funny black blocks ahnd I'd 'av t'stick this funny plastic lens thing on my eyes t'see anti-piracy code. Well, m'eyes wert blurry from t'pits. Ahd answer wi wrong code an' an electric shock would frazzle me fingers an' t'Spectrum reset and I'ahd t'wait til tomorrow t'try again.

    I thought this thread was going to be a throwing down the gauntlet and siding with the Thargoids. And that beach looks like Bali after New Years.

    It's awesome to have a whole new group of Commanders here in the forum and game! I'm loving all the fiest imprrssion threads and such from people kust discovering Elite Dangerous, or just now playing.

    Well that would be an easy one to test, go to the other side of the bubble and see if it points inwards.

    Hey All. Congratulations to me and apologies to you. Today marks two years that I have been with the AEDC. And only a couple of days longer playing Elite Dangerous, and boring you on the forums. What better way to celebrate than by becoming a cash Billionaire? Bucket List!

    Some good ideas in this, but I have a couple of thoughts. The "Vote for action" model won't work for all Player Groups. I wouldn't really class even the AEDC as a voting democracy. More a meritocracy, based on effort and insight. One of my main criticisms of the proposals of Rootstat and Beskore is that the in-game model of communication enforces a structure on all the groups. So for example within the AEDC - the strategic thinkers (the boffins upstairs at HQ) set goals and priorities after discussion. Would their votes be sufficient to set strategic priorities, or do they then also need to direct the votes of the wider internal AEDC CMDRs so that the public facing orders/actions are set? Also some other groups have a much smaller group of directors and a much wider playerbase. Whatever comes into the game needs to work for a wide variety of organizational structures. Even a secret comms channel presupposes use cases for the Player Group. Some Player Groups thrive on complete transparency. One...

    I really enjoyed shooting those eggs. And blowing up whatever else I could around the Thargoid base. For the glory of the Empire, of course. :)

    Yeah, it's cool that people figured that out originally. As a one-off thing I applaud it too. Or as an Easter-egg, I applaud it. If, however, it's required to advance the storyline for everyone and it's something that FD are using again and again, then I would hope they'd expend some dev effort to make this stuff accessible to the 99%. Otherwise they're spending time and effort coding in puzzles that only a small fraction will have the pleasure of solving themselves. It's totally FD's prerogative to do so, but I don't agree with it. :)

    I live in Scotland. I'm sorry if you thought otherwise. It is difficult to know where people come from when you just know them from the internet. There's a woman I follow on Twitter who is scared witless by this change in healthcare. She suffers from MCTD and there's a good chance she is going to lose the money for her treatment.

    No problemo Frank. I've been missing them too. It's not like the comms system is working 100% either, so one tends to give up on it too.
