    So on a You-Tube video that is made by an independent content creator, the independent content creator used a phrasing from which you inferred that there is a move to eliminate LEPs to monetize the game more, and ...... that .... is evidence of anything, at all?

    If the only issue you have with the D.M., then you have never really read the paper. Which could be a good thing.

    The male name for female character is apparently a thing one of the show's creators usually does as a kind of signature move, I would not interprete too much into it.

    They are trying to advertise Open and potentially interact with the community. Hard to do with a bullseye painted on your back by being a dev (a double hit as it probably precludes being a particularly experienced player) and streaming, but I appreciate that they try. Can I use my 815m/s Courier and jump twice after I submit?

    If you don't already have an SSD, upgrade to that before anything else.

    I used to run my 2560 x 1440 monitor in ultra using a GTX970 4GB so it is possible but a 1060 would be better (I now use a 1070 8GB and there is a noticeable difference). EDIT: Yes a HOTAS would be what I recommend you get while looking for a monitor. Even the cheapest HOTAS-X from Thrustmaster will transform how you enjoy the game. Agree with Chris - don't waste your money on a soundcard get a decent set of cans (I use HyperX CloudII). E D has a surround-emulation for stereo headphones in it's audio options so don't think you need to buy "surround headphones".

    I believe Coil guns and Rail guns rely of different mechanisms to accelerate the projectile so could offer different positives and negatives for a similar weapon class Akin to how Cannons vs Multi-cannons are the same but different kinetic weapons with chemical reaction used to propel the projectile

    MalcYorks replied to a thread New Explorer in Newcomers Forum
    I's suggest you add a No 8 - learn what a TypeII gas giant looks like on the map and in the target scan box - these are HUGELY move valuable than the other GGs and are always worth scanning (well, OK, nearly always ;) ). P.S. If you engineer a DSS for long-range you can scan things from much further away, really noticeable on GGs and stars.

    There isn't any practical way for it to be unless ship masses increase dramatically, ship's are shrunk volume wise, or canisters become comically large. If you could devote half the internal volume of a Python to cargo it would hold something like seven thousand canisters.

    Either I was only looking at the standard characters or my 1911 American Morse Code guide is slightly out of date (and probably American).

    Morbad replied to a thread FerDL versus FAS for PvP? in PvP
    People have always rammed with the FAS. I don't really worry about being rammed by FASes, because any ship I have that's smaller than a Corvette can just side step the attack, while the Corvette suffers about a third of the damage from the ram as the FAS itself, so I don't even try to move out of the way.

    But not stored in the same directory or you will confuse E D (see below). Make sure you also change the name in line 2 of the binds file as that is where E D looks to identify the file (which is why copies in the same directory confuse the game).

    Yes I have been trying to work out the triggers for different passenger types, focusing on Bulk First. But it turned out to be more complicated as it is often the State of the destination as the trigger as much as the State of the Home faction. So Famines Wars and Outbreaks will see Refugees (and High ranking VIPs) fleeing and POWs shipped out It is in Surrounding systems where you will find the Scientists, Aid workers and Security Personal being shipped in Business people want to go where the Booms are, if their current system doesn't have one Politicians seek out elections, and civil unrest (presumable to capitalize on it)

    Morbad replied to a thread Aliens are ruining PvP in PvP
    I don't like PvP/PvE flags either and this is a valid complain. However, it's not my main issue with it. The flags are just as much of an unnecessary and arbitrary divide as separate modes, and they further emphasize the separation between CMDR and NPC. If anything, I'd simply go back to the idea of not having CMDRs and NPCs look any different on sensors. Without organization, and with inferior vessels, PvE ships are just fodder, even in what should be overwhelming numbers, even against builds as silly as a Corvette with only 600MJ of shields...

    Hi Ben; I'm not much of a communicator. But, I'm privately messaging my friends. -Not going to continue on the 'Forums' for a while; They are just too toxic for me, and 'wind' me up too much...

    Ive' played this 'game' enthusiastically since released and love space; - to be honest though, I'm more of a game and less of a deep 'Sim' player. -So I'll be following developments...
