    There are 400 billion star systems in the ED galaxy. We aren't even anywhere near close to 1% of that explored yet - a small fraction of 1%. I'll bet there are quite a lot of planets of doom. :)

    There have been numerous posts within this thread answering all the points you make - hint hint :) It's not a case of messing up whilst fuel scooping, for example. Look up things like the "Planet of Death" (or was it Planet Of Doom"? Can't remember offhand) - recent-ish thread. I'll leave it as an exercise to read up on what that's all about. Basically, it's about being able to do more risky things whilst exploring, rather than less. You'll find there's a majority of explorers playing the game that want more risk, not less. :)

    Okay, I understand your point of view on this, however, the game is reflecting a very well known phenomenon in the human world called 'progress', which is what I was trying to portray in my earlier post :) It very much looks like you are viewing the engineering of FSD's with some disdain. I view such as progress and a positive instead. With all due respect, this viewpoint sort of smacks of elitism and snobbery dare I say it. :) I have to ask the question: what makes a trip to Beagle Point in one ship better than another? What makes the accomplishment of reaching Beagle Point lesser than another? What I'm trying to point out is that there's glory in being able to be the first player or players to reach some place in the galaxy, and they get the plaudits for that. It's like being the first to climb Mount Everest - once one person has done so, others will follow, and as time marches forward, the equipment and technology available to mountain climbers will be vastly superior to that available to...

    Mmm. Maybe. I just glance at the top right corner HUD right after the ADS honk and it tells you the number of bodies discovered. I'm trying to think what use such an AdsHonk event - even with a breakdown on the body types as you describe - could be to Captain's Log or EDDiscovery or similar, and I can't off-hand think of anything useful to do with such minimal data :)

    I too pondered this very thing on the EDCD Discord a few days ago. It seemed like a reasonable thought - obtain extremely basic body data after an ADS Honk, including counts. After all, you see this data in the system map after an ADS honk. I came to the conclusion that it's not practical in a gamplay sense - you'd be giving away for definite some rather large hints at what a planet type is, for example. Sure, in the system map you can see that a planet might just be an Earth-like World - but you're not 100% sure of that until you either use the 'audio listening method' (whereby you can highlight the suspected ELW icon and you can hear a very distinctive piece of ambient audio denoting an ELW - or some other piece of ambient audio indicating otherwise), or you actually go and detailed surface scan the suspected ELW. If you had an AdsHonk Journal event which supplied such details, then all the surprise has been removed from the game. Therefore my conclusion was; it's not practical.

    Its endemic within modern gaming culture, years and years and years of diluted content that has to be subsidised by paid for DLC has entrenched the mindset that anything and everything can and will be monetised. Rightly or wrongly, the fact FD has a shop (even though its cosmetic) probably reinforces the notion that the motivation to do anything / add anything is because revenue can be raised from it. Its really not that complicated a reason.
