    Well, the updates and improvements can be new features. For example, the current QoL improvements were: ship transfer, increasing the materials storage and adding storage for modules. 2 of these 3 are actually new features - while still being technically improvements to the core gameplay. Adding new stuff for explorers to find - new features, while improving gameplay. Adding new mechanics for black markets (buy illegal/stolen goods; new, related missions; undercover cops offering stolen goods on mission board) - all new features, while... and so on. If they combine this with adding some completely new stuff, that are not classed as improvements to current gameplay - I think it's perfectly understandable if they charge for it.

    (highlight mine) Maybe for you - but you seem to forget that other people may enjoy other parts and aspects of the game. While I share your view on the journey being the best part of Elite, not everyone does. As for your idea - I don't think it's a good one. Engineering ships takes a lot of time as it stands and it's easy to lose a ship in Elite (depending on what you do of course). If players had to re-do all their modules each time they lose a ship... I don't even want to think about the storm on the forums. FDEV get a lot of unnecessary grief as it is :P You're right - it doesn't make sense from lore and RP point of view, however sometimes compromises have to be made to accommodate the convenience and for gameplay reasons. I don't usually generalise, but in this particular case I'm pretty sure that most of the community would be very upset if they lost their modifications after a ship is lost.

    As pathetic and sickening as reading statements like "the community is falling apart" and "game as a whole is rushing head down into a concrete wall" and "there's something deeply wrong with Elite" every single time a new patch is out or when a dev post in the forums. Oh, wait...

    Welcome Commander! Ecstatic to have you onboard and thank you for contributing to Elite. Elite is truly not a race nor a marathon but a unique experience. Fly safe, fly dangerous and good luck with your interstellar excursions. The Galactic AcademyMentors will set you up for initial play-through and beyond. The following thread will help you find collaborative game-play and some. The single best recommendation is to seriously take your time and experiment before you commit or switch between game-mode and play style.

The most awesome gamepad software ever: Padstarr, Grifta Morphing Gamepad, TobiiEyeX Controller, ECHOTalkative AI VoiceAttack with HCSVoicepacks are highly commended for substantially boosting game-play and more.

    Good to finally hear something about the future of the game. Focus on core gameplay and QOL improvements is great news and a step in the right direction. Can't wait for E3 now! I hope you guys will be making an appearance at Lavecon and save some juicy news for that too!

    Hi Aleksej,
    thanks for the reply, totally appreciate your stance, it does you credit. As I only get 15FPS at best, (a slow player in my instance may cause it to drop to 1-2 FPS), I often have to turn and run or die. Have to use gimballed at the moment though. I tried pirating once, shot three players trying to scavenge the cargo, felt bad, so getting practice on cargo pickups in free for all, I found less players there seem to slow me down. I tend to engage if they start hostilities, like yourself. Your the only commander I noticed doing the same. I also find it more fun to be the underdog


    All best

    Hi Aleksej,

    Just a nod to the most honourable commander I've encountered in Free for all so far. You're reluctant to shoot a player first either it seems from the couple of encounters I had with you (If I'm wrong let me know, I may just have been lucky). Noted and appreciated, thanks for my life
