    I 100% agree with all of this.

    I'd rather not risk the wrath of the forum gods and post it here. Also, I'd have to go looking for it again - it happened a while back - last year I think? I'll have a search and if I find it I'll PM it to you. Nice story :) In my incident, I wasn't bothered too much because I'd just turned Elite in exploration back then, and just got access to Shinrarta Dezhra, and was merely taking the Clipper out on a wee run to somewhere I hadn't fully explored before, nearby the bubble, and back. So nothing much was lost and it proved to be a valuable learning experience - lemonade from lemons and all that. But yeah, it definitely would have been a tough break if I'd have been carrying 280 million spacebucks worth of data. It might have taken a little bit longer to have recovered from something like that ;)

    Well. My point is - I'm sad to see the guy be so badly affected by the dogpiling he underwent on Reddit for it. On the other hand, if it were me, I'd have pulled my britches up and just continued to play, treating the event as a learning experience and moving on. I mean, the hate was terribad at the time, but nonsense like that is just that - a bit of heat and flame for a day or two and it'll all blow over, because it doesn't take long for the next internet drama to happen. To be so badly affected by a mistake made whilst playing <Generic Space Game>... perhaps one should have some introspection and decide whether or not it's even worth bothering about. Having had an exploration ship I was flying back to Jameson Memorial blown up by a PvP Pro Bro myself, after a moment of outrage I looked at the event and why it happened, and decided that I was in fact to blame for my ship blowing up - many mistakes were made by me. I panicked. I thought my ExploraClipper could boost away ( they were also in a...

    I only know of one player who was literally hated out of playing this game - they combat logged at Sag. A* and regretted it. Personally, I liked the guy and have him on my friendslist, and it was sad to see them go.

    I'd like to suggest that any person who gets psychologically harmed if their virtual pixel spaceship gets blown up, should step away from their PC or games console and not play another game, and should, perhaps, even seek advice from a mental health professional at their earliest convenience. Now I'm the first to admit that I might feel a little bit irritated and sad if my precious Anaconda and its rather nice crewmember were obliterated. But that would be a fleeting moment. I might take a break for a minute or three, or move on to some other activity for a bit. But I'm damned sure it's going to be treated as a learning experience rather than the worst torment to ever happen to me :)

    I know you *want* to encourage microtransactions, but perhaps it would be worth having a config file lock flag to disable 'shopper mode' for kids playing ED?

    I'm not 100% on this. I thought maybe the gold was a limited offer and then the golden was the gift for having it (and a Horizons pre-order too maybe). If I'm honest, it's a blur. Maybe my posting this post is not helpful.

    Well OK but equally heat sinks don't help if you take a heavy landing while looking for materials! Stocking up in prep is still cool, does not remove explorer challenges and long expeditions might take more planning. Also why I like Cmdr Quantis Trap's idea. Truth is too, that heat sinks do have more and varied uses in the bubble .. so still don't see the 2.4 synthesis being very far from the mark. edit: Also add .. powerplant unrepairable? Doesn't it just kick you into emergency life support while the AFMU works on it? Then, you can recharge life support after, with (natural material) synthesis.

    Not sure what you mean. As long as no permit involved and as long as you have the range/fuel, you should be able to navigate anywhere. I don't need a slave but can you explain how you're trying to navigate there? If you're sure you accepted the mission properly you should be able to see the mission details (ship's left panel, transactions) . Check you didn't fail it for any reason.

    Genius idea. Inert? Looks like a ground / air source heat pump .. (if you have a hot lump of metal and you cut a bit off it .. you have a smaller, hot piece of metal, not a cooler one I think no?) I think FD made a good choice with heat sinks .. because repair limpets.

    I like this. We have it to an extent ofc, in that rep with faction does improve missions offered, though having that process come more front and centre (and I think your secenario is very, very suitable for Secret Service Military recruitment, where you follow breadcrumbs, past the security levels to the secret base where the doomsday machine is kept) would certainly be interesting. It's spculation but the new system for delivering traffic control dialogue (2.4) could play into this, so you can generate your viewscreen messages with non-repetitive ways of speaking (talking about nearby bases, place specific). The 3d view of your holo-me character (2.3 which might otherwise be seen as fluff) allows the game to generate an animated face (already in game) for that same audio-video message. This is why I urge management of our own expectations on how quickly it can realistically happen as a rule because <bosh> Avatar face - Welcome to starport X I am commander Y </bosh> isn't as simple as it sounds if you...

    Not YET anyway. ---- You're fine asking questions Commander, ask away .. there's no such thing as a daft one. I also agree with youtube being a not great teacher and also think you have to take the plunge, get into the ship, muck about ... and then look up or ask about specific things, as and when they occur to you. Working your way through, to understand everything on the Station Board and Ship Panels, for me was good fun (a good thing to do) and a game in itself. (Forget there's a galaxy of 4,000,000,000 stars outside ...!!???!!!)

    Yeah that would be pretty cool .. more R2D2 astro-droid you're talking? Though I think I <definitely> still prefer the art department working on the Thargs (content NeilF that's content) in terms of priorities as, even when playing the game, metal bending R2D2's would ge good to watch .. once .. but then it comes down to repair my ship (quickly as possible please), moving on .. So not sure all that animation's worth it, right exactly now.

    Sol is High Command for the Federation (if I recall correctly) .. Achenar, is where the Imperial Palace is. Neither one will let just anybody in. Security reasons I suspect. Agree with HurstLlama to an extent Commanders though I think I do sense - some - straight face - tongue in cheek too, maybe. Anyway ED is not a remake of Frontier. It's a new game so definitely suggest getting used to dropping some expectations, there's even a car (and a seriously good car too) in this title. So o7 (a salute) ... blank page, deep breath .. go.

    What ship are you in? What ship are they? eg. Sidewinder is like a mini Cobra III, multi-purpose ship (quite tanky). Eagles are maneuverable, fast turn fighters but vulnerable by virtue of having thin skins. So they're all over you? Yep .. it happens..Do the decent thing .. a Brave Sir Robin .. and run away quickly! You'll love it .. take your time and learn how to drive Rookie. ;) edit: by the way; flight assist will toggle on / off (Z by default?) in training missions too. Be a bit warned though .. it is twitchy.
