    You spent five years in game development. You just don't understand game development. Genuine Roberts is a perfectionist

    And in my opinion - there's nothing wrong with that if the purchaser wishes to spend $400. Logically though, buying a $400 ship to play with in a game that hasn't progressed past pre-alpha, that has no game loop in which to perform it's intended function, where there are no game mechanics in which that intended function could even be possible, that where you continually t-pose through the mesh of said ship, and where there is absolutely no clear evidence that the situation will improve any time soon, we simply have to look at the facts of the matter. My lulzbucket exploded. I rest my case.

    Well, the real beauty of opinions is that they are opinions, and are all just as valid as each other. Actual logic is a vicious beast though, which is why it needs gates :D

    I use the trims for firegroups and sensor zoom, the slider for cargo scoop, and the left under-button for next destination select - it's handy as it's just a full thumb-down to hit.

    You can certainly use the wheels as any inputs you want - but for me at least, it's awkward as anything. Someone somewhere out there though is undoubtedly laughing at me as a wheel-noob though.

    You'd do a far, far better job than what CIG have previously demonstrated :D I'll volunteer to move your racks around so that they reach the fibre. No need for site surveys, safety loops or anything - let's just put a 300 degree bend in those optical babies and yes! 3 quid 6-plugs from Tesco are perfectly acceptable.

    That's.... really quite disturbing. CIG apparently have the best marketing department ever, why would it need any help from anyone else, especially somewhere that the more "enthusiastic" backers have decried as urm, someplace irrelevant to everything.

    It's a bit of a motley crew though - I can see a X52, X52 Pro, X56 - you would have thought they would have a default configuration and a stock setup so each build wouldn't need customised driver installs for each model, and each machine painstakingly paired to it's peripherals somewhere as chaotic as a live techshow, not to mention the hassle of getting used to the different bindings available. The simple solution to that of course, is to KB&M the hell out of everything and just have the wagglesticks as stage dressing :D Oh you are far too kind Sir!

    The problem is its impossible to fail. Any time there is a sniff of anything remotely posing a challenge the same folks appear crying blue murder and FD cave in. Problem is two fold; people moaning about getting blown up and keeping them happy so the bills get paid. After all the longer people play the more cosmetics they will likely buy. I don't have an issue FD making a profit but the cash motive and catering to a certain group are impacting on the game. Now, if it turns out that the majority want a very safe, cuddly, unchallenging experience, and blink lights at one another then it makes sense to cater to that (i suppose). The game poses no jeopardy whatsoever and never has for me. Hence the bots (NPCs) are tedious to engage and the game becomes very predictable and a bit of a yawn. It would be a bit like playing WoW but the only quests to kill level 1 boars in the forest. Much of the reason I PvP is because of the above. If I didn't I would have died of boredom long ago.

    What a novel idea! For $400+, I bet it is focused on exploration interceptor trading stealth bomber missile boat repair gameplay, has a convenient coffee machine and it's own disco floor.

    Lots and lots of those! Got to collect them all! It's a dynamic and fluid gaming environment - Space Chariot Fidelity JPEG Collector 0.01A - even when you buy the jpeg and can cuddle and pet it, it doesn't always reflect what you'll end up with in the Space Chariot Immersion Simulator Pre-3.0. It becomes a nuanced PvP zero-player game that operates on multiple levels with a near-infinite range of complex gameplay possibilities and end-game counterplay. Using the Freelancer as an example, my original jpeg has horrifically mutat, erm, lovingly crafted itself into quite a different beast. What I originally thought I had purchased, and indeed was originally able to view and interact with in the Fidelity Chamber, now requires further Content Accessibility Share Holding (CASH for short) in order to get all the shooty and explody bits I originally had. That's where the deep PvP content comes into play. Do I embrace the inner struggle with nerved jpegs, or do I execute "Good Move" and counter with CASH, or...

    Hi Titas. If you had gone for 1v1 I'd have been bricking it, was testing out a new setup that didn't really work. Anyhow, I'm in TEST, though not as active due to family commitments as I'd like. Pretty certain shooting at the Alliance spokesperson would be grounds for a disciplinary!
