    I think you're right, but not just about the cloud in use. It's more likely to be about the canonical owner of player accounts, which are Xbox accounts and proprietary Elite Dangerous accounts owned by Frontier on PC. From what I can see, these are only shared on the first discovery field of each system, and I guess that these are just plain old text data without a reference back to the originating player account backend (consider the inability to query your first discovereds). If the gameservers used directly by sessions are indeed required to be on Azure for Xbox, then that's indeed a whole other world of pain to unify. Refactoring the player account model, taking into account different platform backends, their customer account models, and how those handle DLC and Game Extra purchases, would give the backend team no end of fun and games. I do something very similar in my day job.

    Even the best law systems are flawed. But what's going on in places like NK? It's just as banged up it can possibly gets.

    Sure, there's precedence for paying in advance for undeveloped content, but that doesn't make it the best idea in all cases. What someone does with their money is their own business, but in general I would say you should be very careful with plonking down money for something before its even made. There *are* execptions.... the Elite Dangerous kickstarter was obviously one. Many people (myself included) put down money on this project before anything was available. That was a gamble and it paid off. There have been many other kickstarter gambles I've made that have not. Kickstarter is a crowd funding system for getting projects off the ground. As far as gaming goes it makes the most sense for small/indie devs who do not have the capability of getting publishers behind them. However, there *are* risks with it. You as a backer assume financial risk. If that's fine then more power to ya. The point here is that Kickstarter is not the best platorm *now* with which to develop Elite further. Dale...

    I can only speak for the Verity pack as that's the only one I have tried, but most of the commands I wanted were already set up. Of course I don't know what command set you want so can't guarantee how useful it would be to you. A very helpful chap has put together a list of commands in the Astra pack: Looks like the same set as Verity has.

    I just checked in and confirmed that missions should remain active but will expire at the designated time regardless of server downtime or outtages or version upgrades.

    I like the idea, so long as it's not some kind of 'loot crate' gimmick. (You know.... gotta pay something to unlock it, etc.) I think that adding more salvage like you suggest would be very cool! We already have some of that, of course, but primarily it's just cargo and mission stuff that you find. It would be neat to find more usable stuff like ship components and rares.

    Ok, guys. I can see Yaffle's eye starting to twitch over there and it's weirding me out. Y'all better get back on Star Citizen and not Elite Dangerous! I'll distract him as long as I can but I wouldn't wanna be on the receiving end of an off-topic Yaflehammer....

    AFAIK the only thing that commanders may lose before 2.4 is their powerplay pledge, if they have zero merits:

    I see what you mean. That is where a voice pack might be helpful. There are a whole bunch of commands already programmed and you can add to them if necessary.

    Welcome to the forum! You should be fine. When 2.4 goes live your current gamestate/statistics/progress should be intact.

    I've know of a few times Commanders have helped out other Commanders with hardware and so far all processes have gone through smoothly and everyone was very happy at the end of the day. Couple of occasions I've sent things that I no longer needed and one of the Mods here lent me a Graphics card to check my system etc. the same mod offered me a CPU and M/B just today (far too generous that one) as I'm looking to upgrade my old one. Please remember though to just be a bit careful, really don't want anyone being or feeling let down. On the whole this is a fantastic community. To the Op, Glad your happy with your new Card. :D

    You pretty much can. Just create profile, open it, create a command, (as many commands as you like). Title with the words you want to say to activate the command. Assign the key you want to press when you say the command (This is the simplest thing to have it do. You can have it do lots of other stuff as well). You can optionally choose which application you want it to be active in or have work everywhere. Save the profile. Make sure VA is running and launch ED. Your commands should just work. If they don't, try running VA as admin.

    Cmdr Skiprat was fed up of looking like an advertisement for the hong kong phone book. It was time to do something about all those chins. Infact it was getting so bad he sat on an empire credit note the other day and a booger flew out of the emperor's nose. So with his new membership to Jizzy's Gym, he set right too it. After ten minutes the throf was pouring out of Skiprat, his arms were aching and his knees were weakening. He could really feel the tightness in his chest. Finally he stopped masturbating and took a shower..
