    It's an Agile term, the development method they are using.

    Ok, I'll bite. Please explain how, as the game is currently, somebody starting from scratch can get an Anaconda in 3 - 6 hours.

    I hate to tell you, WR3ND, since I know your heart was the right place, but from a purely economic perspective unfortunately by buying the LEP you've given up your right to vote with your money and shortened Elite's lifespan in the process. And that imo, is bad for everyone in the long run in part because it creates a corrupting incentive vacuum. So a vested interest can quickly become a sunk cost depending on what Frontier decides to do with your money. On the positive side, I think that investment will pay off for you personally (in the short term) because Frontier is honorable, but I also hope that they never offer the LEP again. If too big a % of the player base owned the LEP then Frontier would be working on prepaid income. That doesn't look too good on financial statements, and for a very good reason. It effectively gives Elite a shorter "going concern" lifespan (unless they manage to dramatically grow their customer base).

    Arry replied to a thread I am sad :( in Elite Exploration
    Of course it is your call, but you are not playing iron man mode and it won't cost you anything, to try your luck with a very realistic and often sympathetic support team we have here. Go for it, you have already accepted the loss; anything else. is a bonus. Sad news anyway.

    Whoa whoa, hold on there cowboy. I never asked for the ADS to be removed. I asked for BDS and IDS to be remade into Infinite range scanners that revealed stepwise less info than the ADS, so that all 3 groups could each have a scanner they wanted that revealed the desired level of detail. With the status quo remaining in the game as the middle option (IDS) And the ADS being buffed to include surface detail without a DSS (at the cost of increased mass). And the BDS revealing only dark spheres until a DSS was applied. Hence nothing would be removed, only added, since no one uses the BDS or IDS in their current irrelevant form.

    I disagree. The spread of racism and other toxic memes is the result, as is misleading propaganda and hybrid warfare. Facebook has in effect become a news platform, and those need to be held to a standard of honesty.

    I think Lysander isn't quite realising that no NATO member has any "back payments" owed to the US. The actual NATO budget is quite modest. Whether countries budget 2% GDP into the military is a different thing. You'd think that a big reason for the existence of NATO now that the Cold War is over, would be to keep defence spending as low as possible. Peace dividend, and all that.

    Nope - that doesn't cut the mustard as far as I am concerned. Sorry. I really would like to know the actual F D reason for adopting this mechanism.

    Sweden is doing so well it's making the rest of the world look bad. We have a sort of sibling rivalry going on here in the Nordics, which is not helped by the fact that Sweden used to be the conquering overlord of the region. Finland's problem is that our business culture is quite young, and we don't have old blue blood money like Sweden has. It's all too common for somebody to build a successful business from the ground up here, and when they reach retirement age, they'll just cash in by selling everything to a big multinational, rather than wanting the company to go on. I'm hoping that's slowly getting better with the younger generations.

    Quite correct what they doing in many cases counts as a real life criminal activity. But without further ado, here is a strong clue to this single celled organisms. http://www.ctvnews.ca/politics/anti-cyberbullying-law-bill-c-13-now-in-effect-1.2270460 And this is just England. IF they are really interested in they can take a look to facebook / youtube user agreement and legals part. Alongside with the laws of their own country which is they are obliviously don't know. Or just think it over how easy to remove in FB a single Photo uploaded about you without your agreement. Anyway? After the Hulk hogan, + revenge <censored word> (adult sport movie) and other cases? The justice system will going to have their turn with them, and that will be everything just ain't pretty. They are not going to get away with it! When the law decide to make an example? And first cases they must! That's ugly beyond describable.

    I like this idea; but having said that. I tend to shy away from the 'tip off' mission stuff. Basically because I have no idea of what they entail. Unique and random missions, with the same type of rewards, would go down well, in my opinion.

    A few excerpts from that wall of text. What on Earth makes you claim that America is "the most amazing"? I don't see anything particularly impressive about the political life in the US. The biggest achievement is managing a peaceful transfer of power for such a long time. That's a genuinely valuable achievement, but claiming that the political structure of the US is somehow amazing and the very bestest ever speak of some deep seated belief in American Exceptionalism. As for Trump being tough, give me a break. He's a massive cry baby, with extremely short attention span. He needs to be babied and flattered at all times, or he either gets surly or loses interest.

    ROFL. :D if anything FB is extremely mercenary in it's capitalism. You think it's "commie" is utterly hilarious. Also you clearly didn't read the article. Try reading before you comment, you'll seem smarter.

    I hope you read the whole article. My point was not about "holocaust denial", even though it's a good litmus test for neo-N-word idiots.

    The fiasco wasn't that one group got their way and the other didn't. No that would be fine if it was a decisive development in a growth oriented direction. The fiasco was that the result was stagnation and continuation of status quo shallow gameplay. It might be comforting in the short term, but in the long term, it's a recipe for death. You're either growing or dying. And stagnation is death by attrition. Even for the people that wanted it to stay the same. Also, let's not forget than in the case of scanners there was a solution floated where ALL the parties could have gotten a scanner they wanted. But ~30% rejected the universal solution because they thought everyone should be forced to use the same scanner.

    Unfortunately the following quote could be (erroneously) taken to mean that Frontier is putting Elite into maintenance mode. I don't believe this is the case, and Ed Lewis is saying quite the opposite (hopefully it catches on!) that the Elite team is bigger than ever. I would love for this to mean that Elite will be getting more meat on the bones. So that's how I'm going to take it until I see proof that it is otherwise. However I do anticipate some heavy forum wars and Devs frustration and backtracking trying to please conflicting interests. My major hope though is the game becomes an integrated whole, were each career has a meaningful impact on the community as a whole. Right now we have a series of disconnected bones on a shared table. Maybe the fleshing out can also become the connective tissue? :)

    I would like to know the reasoning behind a "stray hit" producing a bounty. Murder, yes I can understand, but why does an accidental hit turn you into "public enemy #1" rather than just incurring a fine? The rationale just seems stupid to me, so if there is a valid reason for F D having it that way maybe someone could point to an explanation.

    Eh... If any of that was actually a surprise to you then more power to you. For me, I put no weight in any of it until its developed and released and I can play it.

About Arry

Basic Information

About Arry
Biography:
I'm a dog. A dog was in space long before man had the nerve to venture there.
I am fed and watered by an old feller, who still thinks that playing Elite should be done in the traditional way; via a keyboard, with a P.C. that has to crash every hour or so. So today he is using a Toshiba, satellite pro C660, duel core Intel 1.6GHz CPU, 8 GB of Ram and unknown GPU. No idea of "frame rates" etc.
Rules to play the game this way?
Avoid Star-ports, combat and pressing more that one key at any time. So it feels a bit like using the ZX81, but at least today, he can cough without the system crashing.
His aim in life is to reach Elite, within my lifetime?
Location:
Somewhere near Sol?
Interests:
Bones, chewing up things and spiting them out and the ocational ball licking.
Occupation:
See above?

Signature


WOOF! WOOF!

WHAT!? You think I said or did something wrong again? Blame T.j

8 out of 10 Cats, have me on their ignore lists: 5 out of 10 posters; have me on their kill lists?

Oh dear, it seems that I have joined the Elite. Does that mean, that now I have to oppress the masses?
