    Cmdr Thrust has been playing ED for so long that he's the reason the Guardians were wiped out.

    One teensy correction to that (in case anyone was concerned) ... we always get the stranded pilot to send us the friend request. I actually forget now whether there were any instancing based reasons for this but one reason is because we try to discourage stranded pilots from expecting and accepting random friend requests since we don't want people (especially new players) to inadvertantly get targetted by "undesireables".

    Hmmm possibly. I was with my friend at the expo and she didn't have a founders pass, so I watched the main presentation from the second stage. We had a very brief glimpse of Ed coming on stage with no audio, then nothing for a few more minutes till the main presentation started. So it's certainly a possibility, perhaps someone else in the main room may be able to shed some light.

    My bad, I dumped 25 Buckyball Beer Mats into the heart of a star earlier on ... Clearly they've caused some sort of blockage.

    Thanks, I've grabbed the DJTS one to watch on the train. What I was actually thinking of tho (and maybe I just imagined this) was, I thought there was an interview with him that they showed on the main stage prior to going in to the main PC/ED/JW presentations. No?

    There were 2 meet and greet sessions with him for Founders Pass holders, though I missed them both, but DJ Truthsayer had an interview with him that he broadcast on his twitch channel the week after the expo, was that the one you meant? https://go.twitch.tv/videos/181870841

    Ooooh I didn't realise that Polly was organising a race, life's been hit and miss once again. Looks like I might have to put off slaying some Orcs tonight (something which I'm sure the Norse gods would be proud of) and turn my attention to this instead. Really good write up Polly, looks like a great race too. I'll go for the Squirrel as I have some experience there :p Not sure if I can bring myself to fly my Imperial Eagle (which I was given for free) just for the extra 50m/s on a boost though... I have to leave work soon, so I'll make up my mind and decide on my battle cry on the way home.

    Incidentally, there was a David Braben interview as part of the expo wasn't there? Is this available to watch on-line somewhere?

    I see that Frontier have just uploaded the Jack Horner talk. Is there any news yet as to whether any of the talks on the second stage were recorded? Been waiting for an answer for weeks and really want to see Ant's talk The closest Black Hole to Sol is only ~190Ly away, that 4-5 jumps! :D

    Nope nothing. I was probably the first in too, not that I am really expecting any kind of response. If I'm not needed to help out at any of the UK events over the last 3 years, I can't see being asked to one in another country. I'm sure there's more than enough French Cmdrs who are willing.

    Oh I see what you mean now ... you're not talking about having insufficient torque to cope with the steep incline (which traversing would help with) but about why the wheels should lose traction when being rolled directly up the gradient but not lose traction when rolling across it an an angle. Yeah OK - fair point.

    Oooh, that looks nice! I hadn't actually heard of DU prior to this thread so I wasn't entirely sure what it was capable of. It really will be amazing to see atmospheric worlds in Elite. Every time I see a screenshot like that (or, say, a screenshot from SC) I'm immediately struck by the beauty that blue sky and bright sunshine can bring to a planet surface. As someone who's done a fair bit of skiing there's nothing quite so majestic as a sunlit mountain top!

    Nowt counter-intuitive about it. That's why roads up mountains look like this ...

    Have to say I agree with sleutelbos on that. It looks kinda No-Mans-Sky/cartoon-like to me .. .. compared to the more realistic appearance we already have in Elite .. (If you ignore the blue sky and pretty light glimmering on the snow which is a by-product of atmospheric landings and will come in time)

    Plotting to the core is still slow with the new planner. hchalkley mentioned that the route is split into 1,000Ly chunks so the distance away you are when you start plotting doesn't really matter.
