    Well said :) Ditto with The Winged Hussars. Player factions require some role play and out of game management at this stage. That's not to say that Frontier won't implement more tools for us in the future, I remember Michael Brookes saying at Lavecon he'd like to see more of that in game. I think (not confirmed!) FDEV have plans for more player groups related tools in game, but no details emerged as of now.

    I didn't know that. It still should not make you (or them) to feel entitled to anything (apart from the stuff you were supposed to get of course). The complaints are valid in this case, however I rarely see any complaints related to KS entitlement, but I see a lot of self-entitlement, and that's not right.

    I just calculated my spendings in FDEV store. 450, excluding the Premium Beta 2 base game (that was 100). Do I feel entitled to anything? No, I got all I paid for - the paintjobs, t-shirts, socks, soundtrack and so on...

    I wasn't talking in terms of rewards, but in the context of OP's post.

    Personally I don't think the KS backers are owed anything. They made the game possible, they got their rewards, sweet. I joined at Premium Beta 2 stage (wasn't in the financial position to back KS at the time unfortunately), which was the last chance to get LEP. Do I feel entitled to anything? No. Sure, I have different view on the game and FDEV because I don't have to pay for the expansions anymore, but it doesn't make me feel superior to anyone at all. We've all paid for this game, some more, some less. Just because Player 1 paid more than Player 2 due to paying separately for all the seasons, doesn't mean P1 paid more than P2 in total, as P2 may have spent fortune in the store for cosmetics. In either case, nobody is more (or less) entitled to anything, just because they've paid more (or less). IMHO.

    I also think this would be a great way to go. You might have 'levels of access' grantable (mmmaybe in the firegroups settings) .. say, one full access for any 'trusted crewmen', one restricted to just operating the turret weapons (locking out mining turret and limpets) or vice versa, one "ensign" where it's headlights / landing gear only. Another way to go about it might be to 'request permission' and when a crew member 'tries' to fire a particular weapon, the helm gets the chance to authorise that action, or not, maybe for the duration of the session or per Commander (though difficult to edit here). It's fiddly I think, tricky for Frontier to do, but could be very satisfying.

    The benefit you get, if your allied faction (whether a random generated one or one you named) does well, is a boom state, with lots of good missions attached? Less good? Civil War and the Fnords from next door move in. As long as you're controlling the station though, every bit of exploration data and trade influence, goes direct, to shore up your influence in controlling the station? edit -- It might not be a direct asset thing but if the station formely known as Ours, is run by the Fnords now. Could we should we hang our heads in shame? You can always equip yourself with a wake scanner and if you don't want unallied traders coming and going (who goes there) follow them out of your faction influence and kill them where you don't mind being a wanted outlaw? Or at least 'blockade' unallied stations in yours and surrounding systems by chasing people out, if they trade there instead of at your station?

    I don't know masses about, but what happened with the Rise to Power initiative last year? Didn't one of these factions gain Power standing? Might not have implemented yet, not sure, but player owned stations (I think you must be talking about) are a little way off yet I think. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/243226-The-Dangerous-Games-The-Rise-to-Power! Depends what you're after? Groups/Clans usually work together via reddit, twitch, discord, facebook, inara? In game, they get the chance to control a station, and expand territory, if not actually own the station entirely.

    Please lookup Inara in EDCodex entry. Use the search function at the home page. The Inara entry has an author mentioned, click on it and it will reveal his email address. Hope it works out, as the email address uses the same domain as his website.

    Ah I see, is that what happened in beta 4, the upgrade suits are locked? It's different, but .. would it really be, so really bad, if the store was streamlined into the game? No more paypal/store log in, reboot game .. but click in game to buy? Helpful (possibly essential) to Playstation Commanders, although my .. *will power* .. might waving a little white flag right about now, I'm game. Why not. Elite Dangerous for the win.

    I strongly suggest to stop the personal attacks and remarks. Please? Thanks.

    Yeah. Such a nasty attack style. Even if he was followed in the car behind, would even that have stopped him? It took about 20 seconds to cross the bridge I heard. Daesh were bound to claim but probably can because their order is to use any household item available? So community style protection is key, got to be when it "could" come from anywhere. Boomer Kay (in thread above) has it right imo. Best bet is for as many people as possible, to be useful people to have around in a bad situation, with as few hapless passengers, as possible. All within reason of course, but isn't this you, me, them, everybody? Semi-serious but dates back to 1829 (Robert Peel), "the police are the public and the public are the police" because it's mistake (I think) to imagine you can rely entirely on para-military style coppers, unless you want enormous expense and no liberty at all. And as, in a good democracy, even the laws are made collectively, too.

    As long as the ship ID is random and different for all my ships at least is it very authentic to change it anyway? Some six letter words do include; boxcar, wizard, puzzle, hijack, jackal, wheeze, pyjama, icebox .... The field says not (guaranteed) to be unique? But what are the chances of meeting the same ID twice? --> --> 0 ?

    You can try hit the EDSM sync button, not sure about that one. But every flight log should be reimported tonight either way, it's a security we added so that every logs call that hit a 500 errors are reimported every night.

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

    Thanks again,

    Mike
  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!

    Trader Ted (Ed.)
