    I just press the Left Stick to switch between the modes as and when I need them. I looked at remapping as well and found that everything was being used in some form or another. And yeah everyone in little sidewinders exploding in the stations and leaving SC at stars because they got to close.:D Takes me back to Alpha when I did those things as well as many other commanders.

    Well what can I say. FDev have done a really nice job of converting the game over to the PS4, the controls are smooth and easy to use and they have worked in a lot of the PS4 controller options into the default for the game. Just one little thing they could do is add the station voices to use the controller speaker would be awesome. If they ever give the PS4 version VR support then this would be the clinch for me to purchase a VR headset for the PS4 as well. It just feels odd not wearing a VR headset after playing the game for 1 year in the Vive. It has been a long time since I have messed around in a stock sidewinder and I thought I would get bored with it very soon and go back to the PC version and fly around in my Clipper. But there is something about flying about with little to no money in a basic sidewinder that was refreshing. I have of course upgraded the ship so nearly all of it is now using grade A or grade D equipment, still got to unlock the engineers but this will happen in time as I...

    Tenshi replied to a thread Random disconnects. in PlayStation 4
    Ah ok I usually play on the PC as that is my main platform for Elite Dangerous. But some days using the VR in hot weather can be a pain and noisy due to the fans, so I got ED on the PS4 as well. The game runs smoothly its just the disconnects. I wonder if the same is going on in the PC version.

    Also depends on the security of the system you are in.

    I have been playing the PS4 version for most of the day and I am getting random disconnects in the game every few minutes. It has gotten to the point where I just can't seem to land, jump, dock, or even drop out of SC without being disconnected from the server. Anyone else having this problem? Or know of a fix?

    Not really - it's how PowerPlay NPCs work at the moment. They'll interdict you and then scan you to see if you're carrying merits, and they only attack if you are.

    I have a few blocks in forum.. but I believe my game blocklist currently stands at a grand total of zero. :)

    I don't recall ever saying you DID make that claim. You asked me for a quote earlier, now how about you please provide one of mine where I'm made that claim? I think, rightly or wrongly, that assumption's already been widely made. Nope it wasn't, we are agreed. The only remarks I've made about ganking - if I recall correctly - were to liken the "open's full of gankers" myth to your exaggeration of the issue of the block lists and the dangers of "everyone blocking you" or words to that effect. I do find it amusing that you accuse me of going off on tangents (which I freely admit that I do) while employing this diversionary tactic yourself, but hey... you do what you gotta do.

    That's the thing... there seems to be this school of thought that we shouldn't have any control over who we play with... that meeting and being forced to interact with people we dislike is some sort of "price of entry" for being in open. The PvP crowd are quick to remind us that there's millions of potential players who aren't on the forums every time a poll result is mentioned, well doesn't that also apply to block lists? If I play in open and block players A, C, and C, am I not still able to meet the other 1,999,997 potential players who are out there? Then recall that this block list only influences the matchmaker, it's not a hard block, so I still have a chance of meeting A, B, and C... just a reduced one. The whole thing's basically much ado about nothing... a few people feeling slighted at the idea that someone may not want to play with them and may actually be able to do something about it.

    Really? Why not? FDev put that function in because that's exactly what they DID want players to be able to do. I think what you mean is that YOU don't want players to be able to block YOU. Everybody else however, including FDev, wants to have the choice of playing with you or not.

    Your whine for the day appears to be that you can't hunt every player because some of them block you... so.... :) In fact at one point you were implying that "everyone" would do so and you would be "lonely".

    Sorry, just where does it say you can hunt every player regardless of what they want? More hyperbole. Nor does it give you the right to demand to be that risk. Players need risk, but they don't need you to be that risk.

    The idea that "everybody in open will block me" is as flawed as the idea that "everyone in open in a ganker and there's one behind every star" (which ironically also comes from the PvPers in a false attribution to PvEers). Hyperbole of the highest order. The difference however is that when you DO meet the occasional ganker, you get ganked. When you meet the occasional person who's blocked you, you don't have a clue. It's as if they're not even there.

    *snorts coffee out of nose onto keyboard* Well done sir. :) Yep. Bad apples spoiling the bunch, bad players spoiling open, and all that. You may only run into a ganker with one in ten players in open, but the fact that the other nine are decent still isn't a reason to have to put up with number ten.

    A small percentage of players honestly believe that we have an obligation to be their content, and that if we're somehow managing to enjoy the game where they can't shoot us that is in some way a personal insult to them. Would that be the same little grin seal clubbers exhibit when they pop a harmless trader?

    It goes to the heart of the sort of gameplay some PvPers indulge in... attacking the people who don't want to be attacked. It's the whole reason behind mode invasions. It also explains why people might want to block them. Seems like a clever tactic to me really... find a place where there's a bunch of people you don't want to play with and where they're likely to be distracted and go there so you can block them all at once. Very efficient.:)

    Considering this was news all over the place, with screenshots, with Youtube live streams left right and centre, I think there were a couple of undiscovered tribes in the the Lower Coosbane Watershed area who hadn't yet seen it. So I consider the spoiler-slap a bit of an over-reaction. HEY! You didn't wrap that in spoilers! You just spoiled Kings Canyon for those who haven't been there yet! Thats my backyard by the way.

    You have a fair idea I think how long it's been since I've played, and we started about the same time. I'm just starting to think it's maybe time to unpack my joystick again now... but honestly unless 2.4 is AMAZING I'll probably wait till 3.0 hits. So in your case - since you've not burned out to the degree I did - I'd suggest you go with: ... and see what 2.4 brings.

    Alien artforms at HIP 19026 I was really trying for YES album cover with this one! Now with spoiler tags for those who loudly complained. Thank you all for correcting me. I can only say surfeit of typinge skillzorz due to bus. Though, I must say; There was the whopping big post earlier with a live stream on Youtube to the same place, being widely publicsed across gaming sites et al.. so if you hadn't seen them yet you must have been very deeply buried under a very large rock, Ford & Arthur style from the Original Radio Series. "Hey man! I got your messgae! The towel in the meteorite! How did you do that man?"
