    Question is Herc, why did you want the guy dead?

    For what it's worth though, just submitted this one . If only a closer landing pad had been assigned at the end! I should start paying the people at the control tower in platinum for some better treatment me thinks... NOTE to self: At 830-850 ol' Sir Crashelot has become a killing machine, blacking out and crashing into station arms, rings etc has become a daily routine...

    PVP with some kind of reasoning behind it aside from "I like to shoot things" or "Look how big my special spendage is" is super awesome, especially when people bother to use the comms system to make it clear to people what that resonining is, and even better allow people to join them/fight against them without it just being a SEEMINGLY meaningless (and the seemingly part is very important) frag fest. Random killings aren't really that interesting, and PVP duels are fun for the people dueling of course.

    That would suck yeah. But they could have made a bunch of things using some of the similar methods they did with the Maia Listening post->Communications Hub Zeta----- narrative line, which was a pretty cool idea, and has potential to create some interesting stuff.

    Yes, they will charge you to change each individual element, for each specific colour. So you want a blue scanner eh? $2. Ah, you want friendlies to show as purple? $2 please So! you want your comms panel to be a slighty different shade of orange? $5 of course! It will be pre-defined colours too, so if you want the option to have your scanner blue, and purple, that's two separate purchases.

    Looks like you've found the rare "Rock" variant of rock there. Nice find.

    Yes, I'd really like this too. I don't want to be limited to 5-8 colors, like the weapon or engine colors. In particular, I want desaturated colors, so that means at least 2 sliders are required.

    I'd need to double-check in-game, but that looks worse than I remember on my GTX 980Ti system. I have a 4K monitor, so it's possible that the game is using a higher res bitmap on high res displays. It sounds like your problem isn't related to in-game settings. Try going to the NVidia Control Panel / Manage 3D Settings page and scroll down to Texture filtering - Quality. I have mine set to High quality. If you are using one of the "performance" settings, that might be your problem. Normal installations of the NVidia drivers usually preserve previous settings, so a driver install wouldn't normally change this setting and your problem could persist with new drivers. Also, I've had cases (in the past) where the settings aren't completely preserved and my tweaked "highest quality settings" have been reset to "performance" settings. I now always verify my video driver settings whenever I install NVidia drivers.

    Considering that a ship can take off and land on a planet w/o a docking computer, why should a DC require a slot AT ALL? A DC is simply a quality-of-life feature, unlike shields, weapons, etc., which provide a real in-game advantage. There is absolutely no good reason that a DC isn't included with any ship that can carry an SRV.

    I have purple weapons and it looks quite nice. (I looked in my image folder for a screen capture, but couldn't find one.) I also have purple engines, which look great with my black paintjob.

    The problem with PvP in Open, imo, is the lack of balance. For "proper" PvP, the game needs to be more like OverWatch: No rebuys, opponents should have similar power and defenses, so that it's a fair match. FD tried that with CQC, which was a good idea in principle, but completely missed the mark. Unfortunately, this imbalance causes me to avoid playing in Open, because the cost of losing my progress is too high. One thing that might help, would be to restrict instances so that they only contain "similar" ships, so it's a "reasonably fair" fight. That is, if you have an engineered PvP ship, you would only see other PvP ships with comparable (engineered) build outs. If you are in a wing, you'd only share an instance with other wings. If you want to be a pirate, you'd need to have some empty cargo racks in a ship that is suitable for trading and weapons suitable for disabling a ship, not obliterating it. Battles which last a few seconds aren't fun for at least one of the parties. Another...

    Ouch! The mission quality depends a lot on the system state, not just your local reputation. I've spent months exploring, so I understand. I'm currently in the bubble, waiting for Thargoids (for a change of pace). I'm sure I'll head out into the black, one of these days, but I'm hoping that FD will greatly improve the exploration tools and I want to outfit them, before my next big expedition (although I seriously considered joining the Dead End's Circumnavigation Expedition).

    Sure, there's risk and it is thrilling. There's nothing quite like the feelings you get when (stupidly) flying without a rebuy. (I try to avoid that, but I've done it a few times.) Another is returning to the bubble with months of exploration data in an exploration ship with tissue-paper shields. Generally, I try to avoid unnecessary risk, like flying in Open in a non-PvP ship.

    That was exactly what I was going to suggest. Rep++ Even when I'm traveling around the bubble, I scan stuff, so I always have a cache of exploration data available, when I want to settle down for a while and do some missions. I also frequently donate cash to build rep. I'm a nomad and have great rep at numerous systems throughout the bubble. The current game behavior is fine, rep/trust should affect the quality of missions you are offered.

FD tried that with CQC, which was a good idea in principle, but completely missed the mark. While I like the OP's concept, I don't think it can fix the fundamental problems that currently exist in Open. For that matter, I don't think the proposed C&P will be sufficient either. Someone mentioned improving the authority ship response: Much faster response with weapons that are sufficient to engage over-engineered PvP ships. That could help. Unfortunately, these things are unlikely to tempt me to play in Open, because the cost of losing my progress is too high. One thing that might, would be to restrict instances so that they only contain "similar" ships, so it's a "reasonably fair" fight.
