    High risk = high reward is well and good, but insta-fail on scan is rather cheap imho. That's not adding risk, just annoyance. Better to make missions more engaging/challenging/immersive/appropriately rewarding as a whole rather than slapping a band-aid on it. How? I'm not a game designer. :)

    Have you tried any of the other themes? I have the same theme running and yes the text is dark but just about readable.

    If you disagree with a Moderator decision you can PM BrettC who will happily investigate. Just so you know, imagery can be similar but have a totally different context, but if you feel a image or post contravenes the forum rules then please report it..

    Well, get grinding mate. I had to get R7= Ensign to be part of the Ross 128 takeover. But realistically, Exbeur is not a viable target. BBFA are well established, well organized and Exbeur is a high population system so change there would be slow, heavy work. "Tell him he's dreamin'" But while ya waitin have good butcher's at this:

    The WAR for LAVE is on, WE are in PENDING CIVIL war with the Workers of Lave Liberals, if we win we take Lave Station. But we need help, we need you to run +++ influence missions for us all the way till Friday mornings Tick when WAR should break out, then its WAR ZONES well conflict zones and combat bonds. Group passenger missions are particularly helpful too, leave those solo riders behind. It is also OPEN SEASON on any Workers of Lave Liberal ships, destroy at will. Extreme Prejudice. We must secure the station for the future of us all. Help us ... pleeease

    I think actually that is a pretty common feeling. Elite has this strong "Blaze your own trail" ethos. You are welcome to go and be part of things but really - its up to you. You can be sufficiently Empire to have prismatics but also Fed enough to put them on your Corvette. And mission types are the same whoever you barrack for. So it's easy to view the powers as undifferentiated and opt to start afresh. Groups like the Mercs of Mikuun and The Winged Hussars really carved out a place for themselves. I imagine that's what a lot of Player Groups think they are going to do. Opt out of the big politics and be their own thing. It's not hard to be moderately successful. And as the groups mature they often find they have a position regarding the big powers. But there's so much lore and background to wrap your head around.

    Yeah, nah - one is. I live in Darwin IRL and I spent a couple of months out at Darwin Research Laboratory in the California Nebula flipping the system to Alliance and making my first Billion. Lotta parallels, and half the stuff in Darwin is named after Charlie IRL. There's Charles Darwin University, and Charles Darwin National Park and so on. They are both really remote, research hubs and kinda hot, kinda crazy and full of tourists and military. That's grouse.

    My Answer to your question is that yes it is totally Fair, the rules for open are that there are no rules, you want to blow up noobs cmdrs then go ahead, you want to attack players trying to earn a living at a CG then yes its fair, you want to interdict players in smaller ships than yours, sure its totally fair. because open is a mode the allows it to be fair for anyone who thinks its fair. If players don't think its fair then join a PVE group that makes things fair for all players.

    I do agree that tearing down property is indeed vandalism. I hold that society as a whole would probably defend such an act if it collectively deems the thing being vandalized sufficiently distasteful, though. Crime? Yes. Justified? Depends on your point of view. I'm sure that no one looks back on those people taking sledgehammers to the Berlin Wall and thinks "what a shame they are destroying that wall instead of engaging in a dialog." As an American I will defend anyone's right to say any stupid thing they want. However, also do not believe that we as a society need to allow the defacto glorification and normalization of racist ideology in our public sphere. Private property gets a little more sticky, I admit. Flying Confederate flags and maintaining statues for Confederate soldiers and politicians in a public setting, though? No.

    I have a certain well-known and despised flag in storage that my grandfather brought back from France during WW2. You can bet that my neighbors would have a massive problem with me if I decided to fly that flag. They would probably even tear the thing down, private property be damned. And so they should.

    Thanks for my 1st rep; from one ex-lecturer to a current one.
    May I also take the opportunity to say that I love your CMDR name.
    Being of a certain age, I can't help but notice that your avatar does bear a striking resemblance to a fellow academic of yesteryear, one Professor Yaffle? Could you possibly be one and the same?
    If so, please pass on my regards to Emily and B.P. if you're still in contact.

    Kind regards,

    CMDR C-Dweller
