    Just looked at the last two pages of responses - there are certainly people who want this, and it makes some sense for 'real' explorer who run the (small) risk of having a long trip wrecked due to circumstances they cannot control (though I don't think it's them complaining). I'm against it as it will slow down long distance travel, but it's not that much slower and people will get used to it. Long distance speed records set before 2.4 might stand for a while unless the 20k ly plotting tips things in the opposite direction - time will tell.

    According to eddb there are 27705 systems found with ELW out of 12902681 systems - so that's 0.2% of systems have ELW (probably a good estimate as if people scan one thing it will be the ELW). As for star class (took out a few weird outliers, and around 1500 we don't know the star class) - looks like F & K win: spectral_class | count ----------------+------- TTS | 56 F | 6661 G | 3790 M | 1263

    Well I almost died when randomly npc interdicted when the postman knocked - so I guess we should get rid of interdiction too ... :) (Good points in your post btw)

    Never seen that - you did get in the srv right?

    Never used a heatsink when exploring - and since they've made the h/s synthesis need combat mats I don't think explorers would be relying on them anyway, but that's a different thread:)

    I don't understand this - if you drop out near a binary etc the game clearly shows the high temperature, if you get too close (and drop out of SC) there's a huge popup talking about damage, and then you get at least a minute to work out what to do as the temperature goes up. Unless you go afk I don't see how you're going to die without it being your fault. I think they're also bringing back to audio "over temperature" message in 2.4 as well, in case the CMDR is really not paying attention.

    This might be interesting - 2.4 is changing how the missions for ranking and permits is filled - maybe more permit missions will start appearing?

    It will be - that is one of the harder ones to find, though I'm sure OA did a good job of explaining how to find it. Others are easier to find:

    I know what you mean - I've occasionally not been 'on' the star recently, but 2.4 is even more pronounced and happens more often - sometimes you have to search around for the star :(

    ... and this is why we must keep skimmer deaths in the game - for the insta-gibb lolwuts ;)

    Yup - pic of the list of missions and another of the mission details when you open it - top and bottom. By the time you've done that you should have worked it out for yourself though ;)

    Well, I haven't died to skimmer rain, so it would be nice if it continued, maybe just until 2.4.1

    Don't think so. More people play feds, so they outnumber the imps. And as they have numbers more go on that side, and so on. Not that their ships are better, they just have numbers.

    Plenty of threads about how to find your ship in a base - had to look it up before myself. You need to work on your google fu as well as your parking ;)

    I didn't need heatsinks before : skillz ;) It does make travel slower, is annoying appearing in the middle of nowhere. Hope they reverted it after the beta - fingers crossed.

    Hmmm, reddit - pretty definitive. I'm sure FD would do it in a minute if allowed by Sony/MS - no advantage to them at all.

    Those systems have Col 70 Sector between them - which is a huge permit locked area (not obvious unless you select one of the Col 70 systems & try to plot a route to it). Permit locked areas tend to be difficult (and will be in 2.4) for the route plotter. Suggest you play a route via somewhere to one side (maybe in OOCHORRS?)

    No idea - usually need about 3-4 lvl1 to unlock lvl2, then do 3-4 lvl2 to get lvl3. Then a couple of lvl3 should unlock palin invite. Doing it just with lvl1 is inefficient. And just choose the recipes you have mats for - doesn't matter which ones as you don't need to apply them.

    Get involved more with the community (not here, this is a shouty hell-hole :)). Some options: Canonn are always investigating things - like finding Barnacles, Listening Posts etc (though really it's just a place to find more player driven missions like the barnacle / brain tree hunts). Probably other groups as well, but the level of tinfoil is high enough around canonn for me... Player groups making rares available by using the BGS, or just expanding their influence make a good reason for running missions. Or PvP I guess - they have strong communities.

    Yup between 9 & 10 UTC on 26th, expect game to be down for 6-10 hours. New client will be available at some point during this time (PC is towards the end Xbox tends to be earlier). Then we have a few hours of people complaining that the servers say they are up, but they cannot connect / have the wrong client version. And the calls to do this in outside UK work hours. Then the complaints about invalid/slow downloads (y'all should skip this stage :)). Then all the complaints about new the version and calls for fixes, which will usually be ignored. Not that I've been through this before ;)
