    ATC NPCs with decision trees and animations? I think the game has enough pie in the sky goals already. :rolleyes:

    I get the impression that having permit locks on bubble systems is mainly just because there needed to be some rewards to attach to faction rep grinding (aside from a couple of ships anyway). Well, that and it was a mechanic that existed in at least Frontier: Elite 2. It doesn't add much in and of itself, no.

    It's a rather dystopian future, innit? :p

    No, they are talking about modelling the actual ATC controller as an individual AI character in the game - if you look through the flashy stuff then you miss 99% of what they want to achieve: "Because our flight operators are actually like physically placed in the station, so... you could basically stand in the station, see him talking to someone and whoever is on the ship will see the same thing. So it's a... uh... ONE TO ONE TRANSITION. Let's say that station gets attacked or that guy is out of an emergency or whatever, he's not there, we have a BACKUP system that picks up with just a generic computer voice and that will handle the flight operation then."

    An article that pushes the conversation into the FUTURE and away from the circus that is going on RIGHT NOW. That's what CIG marketing is all about.

    Tuesday. You need to have carry over merits from last week or fresh merits this week to stay in.

    At what point does any of the gaming press actually step forward and start warning people that this thing is stuck in development hell, they don't seem to have a clue what they're doing and you shouldn't touch it with a bargepole never mind throw money at it. You know, actually INFORM people for a change.

    They've lost the plot now haven't they, we are actually in the process of watching them completely loose the plot. Face over IP and now an ATC controller who walks about and drinks his coffee, I don't actually know what it is they are supposed to be building any more. These things have nothing whatsoever to do with gameplay, it's all... I don't even know! I've used Radar Contact for FSX for donkey's years, it provides decent and realistic ATC way above the default FSX ATC. Anyone who has used an ATC package for a flight sim knows what I'm talking about, RC4 does an amazing job, it's a super complex piece of software. This thing CIG are talking about has nothing to do with anything, they have some kind of movie character giving it "howdy partner! Get yourself down to hangar one!" and the character is supposed to have some kind of AI generated life outside of doing that GET AWAY OUT OF HERE WITH THAT RUBBISH! It's actually embarrassing, it's like something a ten year old would come up with. They've...

    That's funny since my entry into the franchise started with FE2. I never played Elite. FE2, though, I enjoyed. :) Played it a bunch.

    Presumably this would only be available to the creator / owner of the Private Group?

    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
