    There was a Horizon episode about bad language. They said that they were magical words with magical properties. In an experiment involving the very potty-mouthed Brian Blessed, they showed that overuse of these words tended to dilute their potency. I'm happy with the swear filter on the forum, and I only have the slightest concern of the use of bad language in the newsletter. If you are going to swear, please at least make it funny! It is difficult to come up with something funny, but it's easy to spot somebody else's funny joke. If you feel the need to inject a little humour into the newsletters, what about a "joke of the week" competition?

    Please no. The only piece of basic airmanship and navigation is flying to co-ords. The whingers have no gratitude for the Zero Meridian. We should do a season with arbitrary zero meridians. You get one, but it doesn't match anyone else's. Then when we get the Common Zero Meridian back, it will fill the gap. Instead of easy mode waypoints I propose "Player Beacons"

    My kid likes the idea that the Alliance should have some kind of mega trade ship with a ridiculous cargo capacity. Like 4000 tons or something. He drew this back when my "big ship" was a Clipper, and you can see a couple on there for scale. Oh and it is still surprisingly maneuverable because it has thrusters on the wing tips.

    I see "How to trade in open" vids from multiple sources. They feature the T-7. Wish someone would do one for the T-9. But I suspect you've just got to take the rebuy.

    Welcome Commander! Delighted to have you onboard and thank you for contributing to Elite. Fly safe, drive sound and good luck with your galactic pastimes. The Galactic AcademyMentors will set you up for initial play-through and beyond. The following thread will help you find collaborative game-play and some. The single best recommendation is to seriously take your time and experiment before you commit or switch between game-mode and play style. Don’t be afraid of a do-over or two and if needs be ‘clear your save’ can be found in-game under options menu. Have fun acclimating, play-testing and configuring your control schemes to benefit you specifically long-term while you carry on with all-out whizzing about in the black. The secret to piloting is persistence with mastering: sweet-spot manoeuvrability, ship power distribution, silent running mechanics and flight assist deployment.

    There's nothing to stop a president from pardoning himself but after this affair is over Trump will no longer be president and so he will no longer be in a position to pardon himself. The question isn't about whether this is the case This seems obvious to me, and I'm sure to everyone else as well The question I'm asking is why isn't this obvious to Trump? Why on Earth would Trump think he'd be in a position to pardon himself?

    Whether folk like/dislike or use/not use DC it MUST always be an option, to keep ED as accessible to as many folk as possible.

    Ah fair enough. On the other hand however, as a former tailor's assistant I have a lot of issues with Daniel Craig's dodgy over tight tailoring and things that are off in his James Bond films, but at the same time I can set that aside and realise it's a film it's fantasy - not realism to any significant degree. Besides, on ED, surely in the future we'd have 'inertial dampers' by then?

    I posit they were expressly designed that way using specific soundscapes and frequencies from nature: 1. Bull elephant infrasound 2. Tiger and lion roars. 3. earthquake infrasounds. All of these have been found to evoke a predator response reaction in primates AND humans!

    Indeed, the fact that Naval FSD technology of the superpowers that these Leviathanic craft have is SO far advanced of anything civillians have --though likely not as advanced as Thargoid tech-- could possibly mean they can 'hide' in an area by generating a WitchSpace mini-instance (for want of a better idiom), a mini buble universe perhaps? Maybe it makes them as heavy as planetoids? Speculation of course...

    Scooping by hand is a pain on some ships. Use the external camera to have a look where your cargo hatch is placed on your ship. When it is aft of the cockpit your control inputs won't match quite right. And ignore the canister in your window. Concentrate on the one in the target.

    Really? Now my memory may have become erratic and I may confuse you with some other people, but I seem to recall lots of derision, ridicule, contempt, etc. from your direction towards anyone who isn't a hardcore PvP player...

    You gain rep with the faction that gives you the mission. There are some influence effects on the faction that recieves the mission, but your reputation only comes from whoever issued the mission. But your fundamental problem here is that you've picked the wrong team #nevertrustafed ;-)

    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.
