    Theyre animated but at the moment are small scale, you'll need to be much closer to the surface than this to see them. They're also difficult to find as a rule, though as you have passengers aboard, imagine you'll get a mission related USS if you get close enough. Would orbit the planet a couple of times in high orbital cruise to pick up USS.

    Deep exploring. When / if I go, I'd like to do so in a fully kitted out, luxury Cutter with all mod cons. SRV's, fighters and probably a full compliment of beauties, as crew. :D

    Sorry. This is PC only. And it's going to be an uphill battle to get that out.

    Though to be fair SLF (even if just for combat as of right now) begins to solve the networking connections that need to be added, to accurately model your ship + your shuttle. Frontier don't tend to talk about what's coming but you can already transfer cargo between two vehicles and back again (Ship + SRV) and if there's a logical progression in the development of space based nested vehicles, the OP is probably it. A nice way to hand in combat bonds, bounties and such without docking, though limited to...

    I agree that there is no evidence that Col 70 Sector FY-N c21-3 is Miackce, but a while ago I compared the FE2/FFE galaxy to the ED galaxy and I'm afraid you can't draw any conclusions about the positions of systems in ED based on their positions in FFE. Stars got moved all over the place. You also can't rely on the FFE system compositions. Those too changed radically and inconsistently between FFE and ED. Edit: Here is my post about the visualisation of the positions of systems in FFE and ED:...

    What evidence is there for this? So far there is no known connection between the Guardians/ruins and the UA/UP/Merope stuff.

    You'd need to know the orientation of the plane of the system to the plane of the galaxy (inclination etc). I don't think that data is visible in ED is it?

    Even without the fact that "day" is based on an Earth measurement and therefore meaningless in this context, we have to be very careful about ascribing meaning to numbers just because they're divisible by three. An random number has a one in three chance of being divisible by three.

    As only 12 men have walked on the moon, to date, and because that is a pretty incredible piece of exploration history, for me it would be top if Astronauts were marked in a different way than naming a station. Leonard Nimoy, Carrie Fisher - quite rightly - have stations named, but are actors. Gene Cernan currently holds the land speed record for a driven vehicle on the surface of the moon. Geting his moonbuggy up to a whopping 11.2 mph (18 km/h .. 5m/s) ... could something SRV related get the name? The...

    Given 2.1 million copies of ED are sold, Frontier need to automate it don't they? I've a few ideas on the subject, even suggesting bonuses that you might only earn if your ship gets killed occasionally (link) but I also think improving the report player function could be helpful .. building a database that an algorithm might check connects/disconnects against ... Trouble is with the rudimenatry flagging we have now .. I've never tried it because what happens to the guy? I'm no rat! Plus, as his name...

    Hehe. I'm not sure if it's exaclty the same .. we're talking about another car crashing into you (and trying to kill you). I take your point about the no costs solution though, which is why I suggest some kind of benefit in the game. In combat loggng I personally think the forums rule against naming / shaming is wrong, for reason that 'dishonour' is a good demotivator to cheating (though recognise you have reasonable confidence they logged and it's not just a power outage). I also think logging is a...

    Well, I don't know. If some viral marketing means Frontier can divert more of the money they have into game development I don't think it's really so bad. Maybe if all your social media accounts are business or personal, or you want to keep your naughty ED habit a secret from the world (just a joke) plus .. if you made a new email to get new Cmdr account, you could set up Your Commander's Twatter Account on that email and have some fun with it .. my day trucking in a CZ, in 120 characters or something. ...

    Yeah. Though you and I all know, that everybody realises it's a template, for an alternative BGS, that accesses the Galaxy Map and makes a new mirror. It almost seems to divide the galaxy into "regions" .. eg. of 'thargoid controlled space', 'empire v federation v alliance space' or 'human v andromeda strain (biogenetic plaque) space' etc etc etc. In the same way that we all know (too) that multi-crew is really about distinguishing the player (avatar) from the ship and nest nerworking .. player to player,...

    Hi fella, you wanted a reminder to share your market data dump on Dropbox

    Thanks again,

  9. Missed your post as I was away from Ed and the forums for a few days. Thanks for your kind words. Good to see that I'm not the only one with 'frustation'. Thanks for your trade routes, I will try them, if/when I have the money for them as they are quite expensive iirc. As I said in the OP or later on I'm using slopey's trade tool atm but even that doesn't get me going. Luckily next week on the 24th PB2 will be released with a 3 systems. I guess the market will flatten quit quickly again after that so I MUST play it directly on that evening.

    I will start this evening again if I can manage it. I will keep you informed. Thanks for the offer of flying with me in the future. Would be nice. But for that to happen 'communication' must be in the game first. I think comm. will change ED quit a bit.

    Hi Wolverine,
    I just wanted to say thanks for posting your 'frustration' message on the forums. Your comments and the following replies have helped me a lot to stay calm and think clearly. I'm also PB-frustrated as an 80's speccy Elite player :-)
    I've been grinding on the Chango-Dahan route, making a relatively safe 343 profit per unit for trading Tantalum from Dahan to Chango and then with Domestic Appliances from Chango to Dahan for 79 unit profit. Not great, but good for docking training!
    Please let me know if you have any success gaining monies from the comments in that forum thread or elsewhere. I'd be very happy to fly with you into a scuffle in the future - but need to get a stick and brush up on my dogfighting skills first!
