    Eyes are open, your comment is based on nothing but pessimism. Braben said they're working on space legs. Lots of people want it. There's so many threads about space legs and a desire to walk in Elite for years.

    We know they're working on space legs according to Braben since 2016. We don't know how far in development it is though. That's the speculative part. The first iteration could be walking indoors, in specific ship sections, station hangar and/or social area like a bar on a station. They will cross use technology of their other games like Planet Coaster and the new Hollywood IP which have the COBRA Engine. This drastically reduces development time. So I think that can definitely be released during season 3 (December 2017 or in 2018). More complex features like boarding other ships could require more time. This would include first-person combat.

    Orrery is not critical to gameplay and neither are paintjobs. However paintjobs, that don't affect how you might play ED, are a development with a return on investment able to raise money for other nice non-essential things, like orrery views, that might. I bought white lasers and engines (white is a tone, not a colour right?) and I'm glad I did it so there :rolleyes:

    For me PP is somewhat inaccessible. The game descriptions, for how CC is distrubuted and earned is all well and good if you're into the detailed game, and I think there's something in it but at the moment all those numbers are intimidating. For more casual players, if PP generated introductory missions or allowed group players to post them somewhere obvious then a new power member could continue to fly 'while' the detail of CC distribution / politics seeps in. Once you have the basic ideas (take these pamplets to our control system y before power x takes over because ..) then you can step up to suggesting strategic decsions. I do like how PP works as alternative to the main BGS however some support .. eg. a password protected forum area (eg. with a password that rolls over weekly, and visible in-game only to players signed up to each power) would allow some centralisation of information sharing between group members. Although people have done a good job in organising such things for themselves, if I'm a...

    I have played Elite on large screen TVs, three monitor setups with TrackIr, VRidge and Riftcat using my Samsung S6 screen and none of those things compares to the Oculus Rift that I bought a week ago. It is truly stunning. It's the little things like a 3D radar or that you actually feel part of the ship. True - some things suck like the difficulty communicating by text or getting used to the Galaxy Map with no mouse, but the immersion overcomes those. So I disagree with the OP. I could never go back to flat.

    Whatever is done about system body discovery should not add any more time than what is already taken... This looks exactly like it would lengthen the time for body discovery because... Yep - this would add time to spinning-balls-in-space discovery :rolleyes:

    Different dev teams, yep .. but same pot of money. But while ED might be a niche game (smaller sales volumes) PC definitely isnt', that's a game with mass market possibilities if you ever saw one. Been wondering what DLC PC was going to come up with and, once again .. I like it a lot. More power to you, Frontier.

    Seconded, I really want to know that we'll get space legs during season 3. :p Space legs and atmospheric landings are the highest anticipated features for me. It's confirmed that they're working on it. I'm happy with just walking around in my cockpit or on a planet, I don't need a lot of features at first honest.

    Starport weapons are super powerful - they'll clear up mines in short order. Just don't be near any mines when it happens ;)

    Wonder what the average age is by comparison .. though not a cultural difference, either necessarily, only a demographic one unless you count yoof .. as a cultcha, grandads. I know the console section of forum is more 'half glass full' than other sections have been at times (but then PC was platform for game alpha and the most basic game at first release). Still a good attitude to have though.

    That's superb. First I've heard about the 16,000Ly trip (how remote is that!) so props to these two. Cheeky devils, I would kill for a tour of NASA. I'm calling Simon Cowell .. Karaoke on Chiron? .. anyone? :D

    True that. I don't think the OP is asking if one format is 'better' than the other That's been done to death = who cares anyway and elite! OP's asking whether there are 'cultural differences' .. I'm going to take a stab at "chairs". Commander's of the jury, I give you .. Exhbit A A 50/50 typical, ED PC player ('s dream woman) Notice the pencil, posture, and the way her blouse gently loosens at her wrist in a .. I digress.

    Congratulations on your progress Commander and here's to the future, Cobra is THE iconic 33rd century ship, you're going to love it. The Discovery Scanner is finding planets marked Unexplored for you? You can get more info without needing any more equipment .. target the planet and fly direct towards it. It has limited range so watch it but the passive scanner (fitted to all ships that works on Signal Sources too) will give Exploration Data on the planet (it's name and surface map). Detailed Surface Scanner is the advanced version of that passive scanner. It works in the same way (target and fly toward planet) but gives more detail on materials composition, and a bonus when selling as Cartographics data. Also, in populated systems, scanning the Nav Beacon (drop on it and target the white blip) wll also give basic explore data, without having to scan each planet. Great to hear you're enjoying yourself. Keep us posted .. and good luck! o7
