    Well, the real beauty of opinions is that they are opinions, and are all just as valid as each other. Actual logic is a vicious beast though, which is why it needs gates :D

    I use the trims for firegroups and sensor zoom, the slider for cargo scoop, and the left under-button for next destination select - it's handy as it's just a full thumb-down to hit.

    You can certainly use the wheels as any inputs you want - but for me at least, it's awkward as anything. Someone somewhere out there though is undoubtedly laughing at me as a wheel-noob though.

    You'd do a far, far better job than what CIG have previously demonstrated :D I'll volunteer to move your racks around so that they reach the fibre. No need for site surveys, safety loops or anything - let's just put a 300 degree bend in those optical babies and yes! 3 quid 6-plugs from Tesco are perfectly acceptable.

    That's.... really quite disturbing. CIG apparently have the best marketing department ever, why would it need any help from anyone else, especially somewhere that the more "enthusiastic" backers have decried as urm, someplace irrelevant to everything.

    It's a bit of a motley crew though - I can see a X52, X52 Pro, X56 - you would have thought they would have a default configuration and a stock setup so each build wouldn't need customised driver installs for each model, and each machine painstakingly paired to it's peripherals somewhere as chaotic as a live techshow, not to mention the hassle of getting used to the different bindings available. The simple solution to that of course, is to KB&M the hell out of everything and just have the wagglesticks as stage dressing :D Oh you are far too kind Sir!

    That is one way of approaching it. A different way might be to allow substitution of materials / elements / data for others in the same "group", as I proposed here: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/370339-Proposal-to-Permit-the-Substitution-of-Ingredients-for-Engineer-Modifications-Using-Different-Ingredients-From-the-Same-quot-Group-quot

    These are pretty good, in my opinion - and the low "stick-out" makes them unlikely to be broken off when sticking out of an accessible USB socket: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00812F7O8/ref=twister_B00QRZVE7A

    CD sourced audio would only require 1411(.2) kbps of data throughput, uncompressed (i.e. WAV). My FLAC library averages c.894 kbps. USB (even 1.1) would be fine - anything else is overkill from a purely music playback perspective.

    It also appears to make the rather absurd argument that regulation by definition is bad and reduces trade, when some sorts of regulation can actually enhance trade.

    It rather depended what one was doing and where - it also had much less to do - and there was only one path to Elite and that required combat. This game has three paths to Elite and only one of them requires the player to fire a shot at anything. While this game is a sequel to that game, it contains so much more.

    Along with the infinite lives and the ability to only lose what had been gained since the last save (that one could revert to at any time)?

    What a novel idea! For $400+, I bet it is focused on exploration interceptor trading stealth bomber missile boat repair gameplay, has a convenient coffee machine and it's own disco floor.

    Going on the last time the issue was discussed in the DDF (https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=14580) - nope.... :D

    A different approach might be to look at the K/D ratio for a player against NPCs (which should also probably take ship disparity between CMDR / NPC(s) into account) - the higher it gets, the more likely the player is to encounter an NPC with AI, ship and loadout that should offer a more challenging experience. The reason that Combat rank is not a measure of player capability is that, even if the player continues to destroy lower ranked NPCs, their Combat rank will (eventually) reach Elite - like the previous games, Elite rank is a measure of endurance rather than skill.

    Aye, question for you. Just started playing this game, and saw this video of yours: https://www.youtube.com/watch?t=72&v=7txixfOI0tE

    I'm actually at this exact black hole, but I'm unable to get it to distort it as much as you. Any tips?
