    Go to the crash sites, positions on the Front Page, you can scoop them from there.

    I'd say the scavengers have been sent from an active base, to get stuff from these inactive/derelict ones.

    What ever hosting site you use you should use the direct option url between the img tags. Sorry would give you a site and example but on mobile. Edit: Try postimage.io upload from your computer and use the direct option. Again hope it helps.

    Alec Turner replied to a thread Update 2.3.10 in Patch Notes
    So is anyone else getting "Failed to read from response stream: Network connection closed."? For the first time ever I appear to be stuck without the game - can't upgrade. :S

    Awesome news, great job Frontier. Also a massive, round of applause to the team responsible for that trailer, it's brilliant! I don't know Stormy they give you what you want and you still want more :p

    You sir are a legend and a genius :) I had actually remembered when the visitedstars cache was first put in Howard explained how the information could be gathered and put into a file to be imported. One of the 2 external things I use is EDDiscovery and Finwen has automated the process you have just described, there is an option in there to create an export file of visited systems and it outputs it into the correct folder with the right name. I just opened the game and it added over 11.5k systems to my Visited Systems list :D The only thing neither of them will do (I believe, certainly the EDDiscovery way won't) is to import systems from the early days when you had to have verbose logging in your AppConfig file, which is annoyingly stripped out every time there's an update to the game! I did mention it to Howard and he said they'd add a note to try and get the path changed for future Beta releases so they don't use the same file. If QA could make a note of that too it would be great!

    Doh, sorry, of course he is ... nice improvement Jigster! To be honest we always knew that unfamiliar control bindings would be an issue which is why we had 4 separate controller options and were happy for people to tinker. Beyond getting people to bring their own controllers I think that's something we'll have to live with ... I might try to have some more "normal" thrustmaster bindings next time tho (if someone can tell me what "normal" is?) :p

    Sorry I must have missed the part where you said how you know that Frontier don't track player movement. It's worth pointing out that it was Steve's idea as I did mention in my first post, though not as detailed. Shame you don't like fun though, because the "guy wearing a wig" was hilarious! No it's not the same issue, how do you plan to hand in your tracked movements to a CG? How do tie in tracked movements to actually scanning certain types of objects, or how many objects within a certain system? As Furrycat said CGs rely on actively handing things in, whether that's by selling commodities, cartographic data, or materials/data to a contact. Your derision and dismissal does you no favours, so sorry no hug yet :)

    Now you mention it I did retire to bed on Friday night believing it to be around 11:30pm only to discover it was actually 2:30am ... hell that's 3hrs! Enough time for the mistress of minions to have given me some kind of implant you think?

    Just wanted to say a quick thank you to Robin for the awesome Buckyball badges we were handing out (visible in the following table mess photo - or rather the empty bag where all the badges used to be is visible - just to the top-right of the diagram explaining my notoriously "cack-handed" joystick controls :p). Thanks Robin!

    Intent to race: CMDR Raiko The Nomad (Asp X) Open Unlimited I've only made a handful of neutron boosted jumps so far, so I'm looking forward to this, but not sure if I'll get chance to enter regulation hauler as well.

    I'm a bit gutted you haven't replied to this to be honest. I had an idea what it might be and Dav confirmed my fears when I spoke to him at Lavecon (caveat of he said he wasn't 100% sure). It would appear as though clearing my save in the Beta has actually wiped my visitedstarcache file... If this is the case then you really need to look at this to make sure it doesn't happen at the next Beta, while I try and work out how on Earth I'm going to repopulate it, if indeed it's even possible!

    The lack of streaming was intentional I imagine as they have no idea what kind of colourful language may be used in the questions :p Actually they did answer quite a few question. Sandy was a bit self conscious as most of the questions especially near the start were for him and he felt like he was monopolising them. I think he may have actually only said "No ETAs, no guarantees" 3 or 4 times :D At Lavecon it does seem that most of the things are suggestions and requests, rather than direct questions about things in the game currently. There were a few Powerplay questions, a couple of PvP ones and a piracy one. Some of them Sandy thought were interesting ideas and something to look into more. I imagine the Lave Radio team will do a round up at some point as I'm sure they would have been taking notes. The main reason I don't remember them all is that I was 5th in the queue for questions and stood right in front of one of the speakers and Sandy's mic was really loud :D Oh and the...
