    Dunno, there were lotsa people complaining when they found out there was going to be a mod for a weapon that would have "healed" ships in Wing. "Oh, woes and dismay, Elite is dead! It's now a game with 4 roles tank,healer,blah blah blah" Seems like nothing like that happened, so... Nohting- carry on.

    Agree completely. I ended up selling my Vive again and playing E: D on ultra sharp and fluid settings on my TV with added EDTracker headtracker. Much more accessible, and now I can read the text again. :)

    In the real world it might evolve into another superpower given 50 to 100 years, assuming it became self-sustainable (even through trade). Here though the time available is too short and there's no way to impose a national identity. It's full of Commanders. ie. It's full of 'I' in the plural form (which isn't 'We'). Each intent on doing his own thing. Sure some of them want to unite, but most don't. And in the game there's no way you can impose your will over others.

    The initial learning curve is considered steep by many. Don't sweat it. Throw yourself at the training missions. They are free of charge. :) And it's not about racing to the biggest boat. I've grinded my way to the big boats only to find myself prefering to pilot the smaller ships in my yard; The T6, the FAS (Federal Assault Ship) and the Asp X (Explorer). Pay no heed to others telling you how you should play the game. Play your way. :) Right on Commander.

    It is interesting that some share my observations (thanks for mentioning "turreting", this best describes my observations), while others experience the complete opposite. I think both observations must be true and there may be more at play here which leads to some of us seeing more varied and interesting behaviour and some of us seeing NPCs turreting all the time.

    Are you both sure the NPCs are actually trying to out-turn you? Whenever it happens that an NPC gets out of my sight, it alway seems to be a side-effect of them just trying to point their nose at me, i.e. depending on their orientation and speed they may have to accelerate first (e.g. into the blue zone) before starting the turn.

    One of the more recent major updates (I think it was either 2.1 or 2.2) upgraded the combat AI of NPCs. We all immediately noticed how they behaved more aggressively, but only now has it become clear to me what has actually changed under the hood. For a long time I though my observations were just the result of high level NPCs in large ships having to fight me in also a large ship (Python), but after flying my Eagle again after so long I realized the same happens regardless. NPCs will attempt to bring their forward guns to bear at all cost. No matter the opponent, no matter the difference in ship sizes or firepower, all they are concerned with is facing you head on and firing. Where formerly they would switch between different modes, e.g. jousting attack, evasive maneuvres, getting behind the opponent etc, it now seems these have all been replaced with a single maneuvre: ignore positioning entirely and care only about turning the nose towards the enemy. This leads to various odd, sometimes hilarious,...

    Its a shambles. Many of the problems with this game come down to poor and lazy design choices. For piracy to be viable they'd need to change the one dimensional trade system from its scripted state to one thats more dynamic and player led. This in turn would make trade more worthwhile. As it stands why would anyone do piracy? It pays so poorly its barely worth anyones time bar those who are trying to role play. Trade should really be a balance of risk vs reward. Stay in safe areas, you should be able to make a modest profit, want the big bucks go to more dangerous places... None of this exists, and with all the credit exploits and so on I doubt many people spend their time trading anyway.. Not that it is trading in its present form, rather its spacetrucking. When we also consider that solo and pg exist it further removes the option for people to pirate players. Yeah I suppose we can attack the AI but I find it extremely tedious and unrewarding. In my view there are simply too many obstacles...
