    Currently there is no quest i know of. You need at least one alien artifact to enter a base (but the exterior alone is worth an hour of fun, so you could just fly to a base and enjoy ultimate creepyness). For the full show you need both an unknown artifact and an unknown probe. Check the first page of the Canonn thread under Dangerous Discussuions for all needed info on how to get everything and where and how to locate a base. It is worth all the work. Believe me. :)

    Exploring a Thargoid base by SRV... The artwork, sound and scenery is some of the best alien designs i have ever wittnessed. The mood it creates with those creepy sounds, green mist, those strange organic structures and the sheer size of everything... In this area one self is the most alien thing. Totally out of place in the best way possible. Definitely something i plan to do again, when 2.4 hits.

    You need to find the option to define what is done on press, hold and release of the button, if that is supported. Send the command to open the menue on press, do nothing on hold and send the close command on release. That should do the trick.

    There is a nice free software called Voicemeeter Banana (stupid i know), which handles this excellently. You can select up to three hardware and two virtual audio sources and send them to up to three hardware outputs. You can mix and tweak each channel as desired with a complex equalizer and channel mixer. I use three transducers (2x50 watts, 1x100 watts), that are wired to an amp which is connected with a 5.1 sound card. I send the computers main audio signal to the standard Rift headphones and a tweaked one (increased bass, more volume and frequencies capped at 80 hz and above) to the sound card. This way you have full audio on the headphones and only deep bass signals on the transducers. Voicemeeter also works with USB sources, so you can use any headset you like. The only downside is, that you have to fire up the program, each time you want to use the teansducers. I hope this helps :)

    Your crystal ball might have told you, that you would have received more rep for this, but that i wasnt allowed to give it. I think this mirrors the behavior of the community perfectly. For me, Elite is still the best space sim ever made. Yes, i have wishes too, wishes that most of the time are not fulfilled, but sometimes they are. And playing this game in VR is like holidays delivered in small sessions, whenever i want... For almost 3 years, i play Elite exclusively, with small interruptions, where i either play Kerbal Space Program or Project CARS. Elite never became boring and each update adds something cool and new to the universe. I am really looking forward to 2.4 and beyond, and i am thrilled to see, what Frontier has in store for us at Frontier Expo.

    I dont know what type of controller you are using, but with the Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T tool, you could set up such control behavior quite easy. It only works with certain Thrustmaster controllers though (Warthog HOTAS, t.flight series, Cougar and T16000-M if i recall it right).

    We are getting a free pair of sunglasses with 2.4, yes. However, i think this will go more in the direction of fancy cyber-visors and stuff, when hitting the store.
