    I'm surprised that nobody added this already, I've not played much since 2.4 so didn't have chance to check if it was added: Harma Silver Sea Rum - Added in 2.4 from the "Time flies when you're having rum!" community goal. Harma Silver Sea Rum (Legal Drugs) Max Alloc 20t (I got 8t, then 8t, then 4t), price 265Cr Gabriel Enterprise (258.59ls) - Harma

    Supply is boosted when a station is in boom state. For leathery eggs the supply jumps to 15.

    Cmdr Thrust has been playing ED for so long that he's the reason the Guardians were wiped out.

    The devs said during the preview video showing images of the T10 in flight: "and here is a look at the content you can expect it the coming weeks". That was 2 weeks and 2 days ago.

    Those are the two sticks I've owned actually. The X52 is garbage. Buggy software that kills your soul. Clunky spring. Cheap internals. Horrible center feel. The Thrustmaster is far more accurate and agile. It does have some minor drawbacks. Has re-centering issues and a cheaper feel in the hand. All told though it's probably the best space sim stick on the market. I wouldn't even pick the Warthog over the FCS. In my dreams, Thrustmaster makes an FCS style HOTAS with the build quality of a Warthog by Christmas.

    I am aware of the propaganda. If any of it is true, then we are being railroaded into an arms race with the clearly non-aggressive Oresians. My question is: why? And why are we getting CGs that advance the cause of using Oresians as target practice?

    It's too easy to blame human nature, but there is nothing natural about the story progression. All we've been given so far is a series of guns and a butt probe, surprisingly the Thargoids react negatively to both of these. We're being set up for conflict. Not even told why. So that what? Galnet can say humans started the war because humans are violent apes? Feels like a setup to me. I'm done killing Goids until I've got a real motivation to do so again.

    One teensy correction to that (in case anyone was concerned) ... we always get the stranded pilot to send us the friend request. I actually forget now whether there were any instancing based reasons for this but one reason is because we try to discourage stranded pilots from expecting and accepting random friend requests since we don't want people (especially new players) to inadvertantly get targetted by "undesireables".

    Hmmm possibly. I was with my friend at the expo and she didn't have a founders pass, so I watched the main presentation from the second stage. We had a very brief glimpse of Ed coming on stage with no audio, then nothing for a few more minutes till the main presentation started. So it's certainly a possibility, perhaps someone else in the main room may be able to shed some light.

    I've had to call the fuel rats already about this exact issue a couple weeks ago. I told them the Thargoids were super thirsty for fuel, but I don't think they believed me at the time. Anyway, it's not a death sentence if you shut down all your non-essential modules and log out quickly.

    My bad, I dumped 25 Buckyball Beer Mats into the heart of a star earlier on ... Clearly they've caused some sort of blockage.

    Thanks, I've grabbed the DJTS one to watch on the train. What I was actually thinking of tho (and maybe I just imagined this) was, I thought there was an interview with him that they showed on the main stage prior to going in to the main PC/ED/JW presentations. No?

    There were 2 meet and greet sessions with him for Founders Pass holders, though I missed them both, but DJ Truthsayer had an interview with him that he broadcast on his twitch channel the week after the expo, was that the one you meant? https://go.twitch.tv/videos/181870841

    Ooooh I didn't realise that Polly was organising a race, life's been hit and miss once again. Looks like I might have to put off slaying some Orcs tonight (something which I'm sure the Norse gods would be proud of) and turn my attention to this instead. Really good write up Polly, looks like a great race too. I'll go for the Squirrel as I have some experience there :p Not sure if I can bring myself to fly my Imperial Eagle (which I was given for free) just for the extra 50m/s on a boost though... I have to leave work soon, so I'll make up my mind and decide on my battle cry on the way home.

    Incidentally, there was a David Braben interview as part of the expo wasn't there? Is this available to watch on-line somewhere?

    I see that Frontier have just uploaded the Jack Horner talk. Is there any news yet as to whether any of the talks on the second stage were recorded? Been waiting for an answer for weeks and really want to see Ant's talk The closest Black Hole to Sol is only ~190Ly away, that 4-5 jumps! :D
