    Reputation decay should be disabled, because its demotivating and many people don't play every day. So when they come back in a week or it shouldn't decay while we're offline. Add more cool, meaningful stuff to do. Related post on reddit FDEV - Please stop reputation decay while players are offline

    The names were determined by their original source - in this case LFT for the primary star with Gliese for the companion. You can get this with older catalogues, especially Hipparcos and HR. Michael

    CQC needs Bots to survive, because there's not enough active players to start CQC matches without waiting for like an hour.

    We'll get that with update 2.4 for sure.

    Before 2.3 autodock was working fine for me. After it, I get a juddering flight, so something's acting squarely (not really surprising though as 2.3 was a deep, deep code update .. deeper than we'll ever see again, imho.)

    5 minutes of non-stop jousting? Five full minutes of just repeatedly diving pell-mell at one another - joust, pitch 180° and repeat... and this lame excuse for combat is supposed to justify the custard-space 'flight model'? Compared to the range of combat manoeuvres you can make in FFE this is just.. so sad. :( The only time you'd end up jousting like this in the previous games is if you were flying a big heavy ship, in combat against a small fighter. But then, it'd only take one or two well-aimed shots to end it. With more-or-less equal ship classes and no space-friction or space-speed-limits you'd be able to go proper Top Gun on one another. And no i'm not talking about the volleyball scene.

    I also only have one ship, and don't see any point in owning any others since they're all equally useless. Took my eagle out last night, for the first time in maybe a year or so, undocked from Daedalus station, out into custard and swam down to the surface of Mercury, using FSD, obviously, as all the ships are completely immobilised in 'normal space' and at a top speed of 140 m/s (relative to the frame of custard itself!?) it'd probably take a week just to make that one short hop. Went through the soul-destroying indignity of orbital cruise and glide mode as i approached the surface, robbing me of all speed and thus any real point of even trying to buzz the surface of a planet in the first place, saw a crater in the distance that i thought might be fun to dive into, but again, at the 140 m/s i was allowed at the surface, that too would've taken all day to reach, so instead i just swam around for a while watching the identical little black rocks slowly ebb by, until i noticed some kind of small base,...

    They stated in advance what would be in Horizons, each major update and have developed those things. Whether you like it or not is another matter. There are issues, bugs (many of which have been patched), but that doesn't make the game itself broken.

    You think really highly of yourself. When you pay for something you agree with the terms. Simple as that. They have been developing the features they stated would be in each major update. There's no fixed release date for all Horizons updates. Your rants don't help either.

    By 2.5 years you mean since the release of the game. That's not true, because there have been several updates which improved features like mining, combat and exploration (core features). For example the ancient ruins, planetary landing and neutron stars came after the game launched. Mining, exploration and bounty hunting could use more depth. They can't do everything at once. I agree planets need more content and gameplay. A new SRV is a request that's has not been confirmed. The BGS could use more improvements, it had some minor improvements during the last year. It's not a broken game lol.

    What you call "clear motivations" is your amateur analysis. You also don't know the long-term plans beyond Horizons. They can use their resources however they want. You have zero influence on that. If they'd really wanted to neglect Elite they wouldn't bring to the PS4.

    A lot of the features that were added with Horizons made the game a lot better. Those features need more depth such as multicrew (non-combat role). I think Frontier should release updates with more depth and improve old features. I wouldn't call it effortless. Horizons has added a lot for the price point, there's still update 2.4 to come. So to me Horizons is worth it. That is worrisome, because a reason why few people use CQC is because it needs integration in the main-game, multicrew needs non-combat roles and more depth (now it's mostly pew pew). I understand people expect more with each update... Frontier tends to improve stuff iteratively (adding more content overtime).

    But you didn't add sources which verify the development decisions. Yes I'll show you: FY2017 Ahead of Expectations Revenue and profit for the current financial year are now projected to be ahead of the Board’s expectations. This is due to strong sales following a successful November and December Holiday period combined with a positive Easter weekend. The performance of both current franchises, Elite Dangerous and Planet Coaster, has been helped by a continuing roadmap of updates, delivering additional content, improvements and extensions.

    It would be nice if Frontier put more development resources on Elite Dangerous to improve the core game. I think a lot went to the PS4 version which is why 2.3 had less content than what people wanted. However, you have no say in whether Frontier should only focus on Elite (which they won't, cause they want multiple self-published franchises). So where is your proof of that? You're just commenting on a forum without any official development documents or memos where such decisions were made. I do know that and I also know they're doing pretty good with millions of pounds in cash reserves and growing self-published franchises. So there's nothing to worry about financially for the coming years.

    You can do that, it's just two buttons instead of one .. <enter camera mode> <toggle from ship conttol, to camera control>. I think the fact the camera always defaults to ship control, every time you switch views too can be easily confusing but once you've got your head around it, two buttons aint that bad and the extras; blur, depth of field, camera speed and such, cool.

    But that's like your opinion man. Many people think more time should be spent on improving the old, core game mechanics and development is slow (frequency of patches and the amount of content). The game has flaws (lacks social tools, chat rooms, guilds, much grinding/needs more fun gameplay), but by no means is Elite Dangerous a bad game. Rather it's good compared to other space sims, and many people get a lot more value out of it than what they paid. Where do you get this insider information? You have no idea how they finance the development of ED and other games.

    :P Indeed! But what an improvement it would make! And in previous threads I've suggested how that could be implemented using code already existing in the game; the "planetary search mission" indicator code could be used to mark your target destination, for example. The heatmap of areas-of-interest would very much be part of an exploration gameplay though. If you're specifically looking for volcanism, for example, you'd be more inclined to fly around a specific area of a planet's surface by aiming toward something indicated on a heatmap, as opposed to what happens now which is flying around a planet surface in the vain hope of finding volcanism using the Mk.1 Eyeball.

    Aw c'mon Jaiotu, a large number of your list has very little to do with Explorer content. That was a QoL improvement, not specific exploration content. Really! Not specifically exploration content - needed for new features added to the game (like base scanning etc.)

    It's not that I think, even though every one of them I've met, at a couple of elite meets now, was top blokes and even though we are talking 'Cambridge' here. People who want to see the potential of ED achieved don't want that potential to be wiped out by others who don't necessarily always have, the best interests of the game long term, at heart. These might be ppl might be worried about pirates interdicting them on the way to an engineer or who decide not to engage with the BGS and then call the game shallow. If people can manage your expectations though, and don't risk turning off new players, there is already a lot to do in ED if you're willing to engage with it. Problem is, some people seem to think ED should be tying our shoe laces for us, or solving the mysteries of gravity quarks a couple of years in. (When - obviously - that's season 4)
