    My indifference is at the point where I'll just copy/paste my reply from a different topic: My Thargoid-give-a-crap-o-meter is reading pretty darn low these days.

    Hey now, are you implying that Thargoid encounters are static, non-dynamic experience with defined triggers as opposed to an inevitable force like a flood or plague set to sweep across known space? Boy I hope not... I've had my hands full the past couple of years not being impacted in any way by the 12-way clandestine cold war struggle for galactic dominance known as "Powerplay." The threat of a legendary alien threat from beyond witchspace endangering all of humanity and making me actually notice there was an invasion would be too much for me to handle. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got more important things like farming arsenic and high grade emission USS's to think about.

    Woah, woah WOAH. Cancel the three ringed circus? Closing circuses means unhappy, unemployed clowns. Think Thargoids are trouble? The LAST thing we need are sad clowns with too much time on their hands. "You'll grind, too!"

    Your best bet is to link up with these cats: http://www.buckyballracing.org.uk/ They know a thing or two about it. For a little more history on the subject, have a gander at this: http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/The_Buckyball_Run

    Having spent the last couple of days sacrificing time and materials on the altars of various engineers, I decided I might as well carry this through with the suggested sacrifice to the gods. Well, Thor, it being his day and all.

    You actually wanted another one? Frontier was wise in not instituting another trade CG for the Nth week in a row. They really need to get the "narrative" part going. The Thargoid war can't just be an endless stream of CG's... can it?

    That's the problem with fleshing out the naval careers for all three factions, not just Alliance. Trying to backfill the career/ranking system after it's been in place for three years is going to ruffle feathers no matter how they do it. Adding ranks to Alliance? If you've already got the Alioth permit and have run 10,000 missions for them, do you start out as an Alliance rookie and have to work your way up from the bottom? If they add actual military careers and missions beyond "take a random mission and add Naval Ascension to it" are players who've ranked to Admiral or King going to have to go back and re-certify? If not, will the players who want the gameplay offered by such a thing be able to go back and play them? Will they scrap the current model altogether and make everybody start from scratch? Will they make fleet allegiance a requirement, where you can only serve in one military at a time, and if so what happens to your other ranks?

    Why not have a go at our current race Yggdrasil - link in my signature - instead? By the way, did you voice the awesome Galnet story for my Fat Tony's Festival of Racing event? If so then, I've been meaning to tank you. Consider this an IOU for a pint sometime. Hopefully I'll be at next year's Lavecon. :)

    LOL ... just watched the video. I did wonder why you were asking about the Fuel Rats. :p What I'd have given to be the one to take the call ... his rescuer didn't even know who he was rescuing. I'd have made that WAY more embarassing for him! :D

    #1 - yes, please #2 - states and minor faction influence are only available via system map for systems you have explored previously or are huge population systems. your implementation would break with that, making it available to everyone, which i personally don't like. i would like to see all info on a faction and the systems it is in bring present in its homesystem for exampel. #3 well, for me the utc. midnight tick was a catastrophe as a bgs player, seriously cutting into me sleep-time to update tasks for those players in other time-zones. i think there is no good fix ticktime, but would suggest a 25 hours tick for the same reason.
