    Yeah, I noticed that .. (OP's pic) it's a Tourism commodity market. I love the idea of flogging stuff to sunburned holiday makers for a good price, I've been to Istanbul .. and Moissanite, Taaffeite and Jadeite, they're all semi precious stones. Moissanite's even a FAKE haha A new one on me +1 reps all around

    Ah .. Jadeite (quite valuable! found surface scavenging, ideally in lawless systems) .. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jadeite You'll find it ready mined in cannisters at some POI sites on surfaces. Not sure if it ever turns up if you destroy mining installations but there are a couple of minerals in the same category in OP screenshot. Possibly hints at something for the future game. At the moment not possible to mine the surface yourself afaik though if people will leave it lying around and if I just happen to be passing by in SRV, obviously wouldn't mind if I do! You can sell it in commodity market (depending exactly where you got it) but don't think you can buy it anywhere.

    While you're right, there's absolutely NO 'wrong mode' .. it's wallopin' good fun to fly in and out again, sightseeing right under their noses, in a speedy stealth build. (Did someone say Eagle? Costs near nothing if the worst actually does happen but you do know for a fact, if you've no cargo, no NPC will ever touch you).

    Likewise. I don't have ridiculous hours to play, fly mid-range ships, mouse keyboard on a below spec laptop but play open anyway, including CG's, visits to engineers, the lot. Find it adds that unknown factor, making Elite: Extra Dangerous. Don't think I've ever had an issue not able to escape from but even if I did .. stuff happens and I could introduce you to the elite NPC FdL who just tried to mess up my Python's day. In answer to the OP then .. hope so. Little by little the galaxy is 'maturing'. So come on in, the water's lovely, and the adrenalin too.

    I have been spending the last few days away from my cockpit and browsing the old archives in Ravescene Memorial in the Futhark system. During my browsing, I uncovered a mysterious time portal hidden away, leading to a most wonderful collection of documents dating back to the mid 11th Century: tapestries depicting life on Earth at the time. Interestingly, many of the customs, cultural references and activities depicted resemble very similar practices in today's 34th Century life. Agree?

    OP, I'll have zero pity of any explorer who achieved a grade 5 FSD mod by way of the exploit.

    When are you going to stop indiscriminate player killing? And thanks Frontier for this action. Many of us who've achieved our Engineering mods without exploiting, and just plain 'hard work', are glad of this move.

    I loved the hauler too. For my folly, i have all its paint jobs. Pity that even space taxiing has been taken away from it by ship transfers. Wouldn't it be nice if there were sub-outpost starports that only had small pads, limited by demand volume but giving high margin, making you into the overpriced mobile shop in space? Or if there was a way to have lower running costs on a non-combat ship, so that they would higher credits/hr at any size class than a multirole or combat-fitted vessel?

    I use pitch and yaw on mouse, like it was in the previous games, and use Q & E for roll, with A & D, W & S for linear thrust. Same mapping i use in FFED3D. The nerfed yaw in ED - together with the infernal "space speed limits" - mean i mostly play FFE tho, as coming back to the same controls on ED is like driving a Sinclair C5 after being used to a Ferrari... :(

    Good luck with the new project! My best MB memory is of the time when you were being the community manager as well as exec producer while production was in full flow and head of fiction, to boot! I was in awe at your pulling it all off, interacting with us, the great unwashed, here, and remaining sane at the same time.

    That would be a lot better than the nothing-burger we got now. Especially on consoles where the dreadful orange HUD is the only option.

    I'm sure they will add more aliens. Thargoids will be the first sentient species that we'll encounter.

    Hi everyone, Iíve worked at Frontier now for over 14 years, and in that time Iíve had the pleasure on working on a diverse range of projects. In fact of all the games weíve released in that time thereís only three Iíve not worked on in some capacity! The most significant of which was Elite Dangerous. Since becoming involved in the Kickstarter, and the subsequent development itís been a major factor not only in my professional life, but in my social one as well. As with any multi-project company people occasionally move between games, and itís with great pleasure (and some sadness) that I can let you know that Iím moving onto the secret project we announced a few months ago. Itís a fantastic opportunity, and another game Iím proud to be involved with. While I will miss not being so closely involved in Elite, Iíll still be playing the game regularly and participating in the community where I can Ė Iím currently making my way to Colonia in my Imperial Courier :-) I should emphasise that this doesnít...

    Clearly the imagination has little relevance in 'a computer game about outer space 3303' but I find the trailers evocative, as the game's working simulation is. Maybe the ten year plan is about how ED really should appeal most of all, to ten year olds? I reckon it does and that grown ups enjoy it for what it is too, maybe only teeny boppers what like to complain. Elite Dangerous : Me Me Me .. for (season) three?? Arf.
