    Yay! They got the race in the newsletter before the start this time! OK, so they used the wrong image but still, good effort FD, 7/10. :p Happy racing everyone!

    Same here, wanted that all along, dirty great billowing plumes of smoke ... not these simple rainbow colours. Oh well, easy money I suppose.

    Thanks mate, these are superb. You might want to rephrase this, maybe. :x

    Sandro, this may be the best Exploration focused dev post I've read to date. When I heard you were reviewing the scan mechanic, I was thrilled, but reading this list fills me with renewed hope that Exploration could be a complete and vital game unto itself. I can see you have the design concepts well in hand, and tbh I'm even more glad now for having dropped an expansions worth of money in the store this week. As much as I love the kits and paint jobs, the main reason I buy them is to say: Thank you! to everyone at Fdev. Very excited to see what comes next. :)

    For what it's worth there are a couple of informal race tracks out there along with old scoreboards from their when their respective events were being run that you could always have a go at (comparing your final time against the winning times).

    Interesting ... you said it was dark and I was confused because it seemed OK for me. Comparing your Viper run video with the one from my POV I can't quite put my finger on it but yours does seem darker. Have your dropped your gamma correction way down or something?

    ^^^ this The points the OP are trying to make are valid (I adore VR, I think it's a total game changer, but you know what ... I only play ED in VR about 10% of the time - cue cries of shock from the crowd!). There are all sorts of good reasons for this. However ... I think you might struggle to get the sensible and perfectly reasonable discussion you deserve with, as Munial so eloquently puts it ...

    Maybe, but would that stop people from complaining that what they deem to be relevant isn't displayed? That's obviously a rhetorical question. I stand by the fact the superpowers are in damage limitation though, as far as the average person in the galaxy is concerned they have nothing to worry about the Thargoids, there's been no direct hostility with anyone except for some Federal ships. Which probably didn't make any of the major news outlets (except in imperial space I'm sure ;)) The galaxy is fully aware of Palin's links with Xenobiology, if you were interested in finding out more then he is the obvious place to start, the obvious downside to that is that you have to become allied with Sirius corporation who I trust as far as I could throw the ravenous bugblatter beast of traal. I have not been to Palin's base since it all became public knowledge, but I think that there should definitely be some news articles there (if there isn't) that would direct you to at least one of the Thargoid sites. ...

    Slightly OT (and a bit cringe worthy, me recommending my own thread - sorry) but it feels like an opportune moment (what with all the forum regulars here who've never seen these blueprints before) to direct people to my "Best of Forum" thread. There's seem really great stuff out there (like these blueprints) which has been around for ages that you may well have missed the first time around!

    Welcome Bo :D Can't believe it's your first post here. I'm can't make it as aside from not being in Germany, I am going to see 65daysofstatic on Thursday evening. Interesting that you're taking a break from the show floor this year I am very intrigued indeed to see what you are going to be doing instead! If one of those special events could be held over here then that would be great too ;)

    Nice! I think it's definitely worth conveying that getting into VR ED can be a pretty simple process. One question, was all this strictly necessary? Close oculus home Shut down pc Start pc Launch oculus home

    For the avoidance of further sarky comments I strongly suggest you change the title of this thread to something like .. A sober opinion of the current state of phone based VR for Elite Dangerous

    I'm sure that Terrorsidic was taking it easy on us with his Eagle run, but here is the video of my 3:36.75 time. Man flying that Eagle with the enhanced thrusters is crazy, but it makes avoiding incoming large ships a little bit easier :D You can see my success at fitting through the gap this time too, I didn't aim for it intentionally but I wasn't going out of my way to avoid it.

    They haven't been found on Earth though have they? They've been found hundreds of Ly away from the bubble, no one truly knows what they are, why do you expect there to be signposts to them for any Tom, Dick or Harry to find? Yes there were Galnet articles, quite a few in fact, and as for finding the Professor Palin missions... As was already pointed out they weren't openly advertised because, why would you, especially considering what has happened to those who have tried to get the message out. They were found, because someone picked one up and then spread the word among the community of pilots that have been taking an interest in such things. This is still in cover up and damage limitation mode as far as the superpowers are concerned.

    Thank you very much for the update Dale. It is a shame that there was no in game announcement prior to this, but Dale has responded and said this was down to a mistake on Frontier's part. They're not trying to cover anything up, they're openly admitting when something unforeseen happened. You know full well the first site we found was the one FD intended us to find. And while some sites were found that way, not all of them were, just as not all people solving the mission now are using route optimisers. But given people's necessity to only care about making the maximum cr/h, I don't think it's that surprising.

    Alec Turner replied to a thread [EVENT] Buckyball Racing Club in Dangerous Groups
    Update: I spent an entire session scouting the surface of Mitterand Hollow for a nice peak overlooking a crater with a recognisable/serviceable landing spot on the top (that's not much to ask for is it?). Got depressed by the lack of variety in the terrain generation (sure the mountains are all different, but they're all different in the same way - is it me or did we used to have much more variety in the types of mountain terrain that the game could generate? Have mountains become the new beige?) and abandoned this (for now) in favour of the Okinura Station Sprint. My SRV race idea has not been abandoned, but it has been delayed.

    I've not chosen a course yet, so I'd prefer not to have the first slot, other than that I've no preference.
