    Even this thread is proof of just how 'different' this community is, it hasn't gotten too toxic or completely derailed and it's already on it's fourth page! Truth be told OP, the haters are going to hate, the fanboys and white-knights are going to defend and as others here have said, it's best to just take either side's commentary with a grain of salt.

    This claim is made without any evidence. State support for children can be very significant in reducing childhood poverty and inequality. What is your claim with "increase reliance" here? Only wealthy people should have children? The children of poor parents should live in poverty, because the important thing is keeping taxes low rather than taking care of the next generstion?

    I think the reason people are asking is because it seems outwardly that Frontier isn't giving Elite priority. The game has pretty clearly hit a speed bump. Aliens are very very cool, but not exactly full featured content. More of a basic boss fight with some cool graphics effects. We don't even have any story-driven motivation to fight them yet other than "target practice." And since I'm being straight, the Beyond set of release stuff are things that many people expected already within the last two years. Don't get me wrong, we are THRILLED you guys are finally talking about fleshing out Exploration, but 14 months?? After, waiting 30 months already, that is a crazy huge runway you guys are giving yourselves. I mean we have open wallets here ready to throw money at Frontier. We're just waiting for you guys to release stuff at this point. Yeah, I know the Beyond stuff is free, but for pete's sake, launch a Kickstarter if you need to kick it up a notch. 14 months for Exploration overhauls... I...

    They have made improvements. It used to be, one shot was enough. We do get the 'watch your fire' message now and if you're allied, you get even more leeway. At the same time: There is always room for improvement.

    You keep saying 'I knew', but in fact, you assumed. A completed scan, becomes a fact. Them hitting you, becomes a fact. Hit the hostile button and the facts are there; instantly. Then no scan required.

    Seriously guys "virtue signalling" is a made up BS concept. It may sound sciency, but it was coined by a right wing columnist. It makes the claim that nobody has any values really, those liberals just pretend that they do. You will seem a lot smarter if you stop using that phrase.

    Cutter: Speed and shield, for less then 30 more seconds. The first ship is wanted, because they fired on you, boost to the next and scan. If either of the other two ships start hitting you, they automatic become wanted too. All three confirmed, then move some pips and play.

    Dunno - you would need to ask Cmdr Thrudd. Sorry I can't help.

    I would say that it should be released into the general population and those who own it, would not be too angry about it, no longer being their exclusive.

    Cutter, nice ship, I may afford one, one day. So do you think you'll be using those tact-ticks again?

    Thrudds ( is closing down on the 24th - Cmdr Thrudd has offered the source code and database to anyone willing and able to take it over. I can't possibly do it but I have not seen anything else about it on the fora and wondered if anyone was considering taking it on? EDIT: P.S. I hope that Cmdr Thrudd doesn't mind me posting this, I should have asked I suppose.

    I spy three Annocondas and I'll just start shooting at the first one I scan. No need to worry about the others, they could be Elite, no worries; they could even be harmless and therefore not be able to fly in a straight line; but still. No worries, no need to check them out, before I start shooting. FD have been doing things about stray shots hitting things they shoulden't; years ago it was one shot and you were dog food. These days, you get a few stray shots, before they even mention it to you through the coms. Getting wanted, takes a lot of damage.

    ..............and the moral of the story is: I really didn't have to read all of that and we do have to get sucked into the 'voices of doom' threads.

    The mark four has been a marketing mistake in the long run. It was offered; unfortunately as an exclusive, with re-release horizons purchase. I brought the LP and got it, because of the time I brought it. I thought, it would be a free ship in the game, because I took up the deal. But it became, an exclusive, which in theory, means they cannot offer it again. Not a good plan. As to it being a useless ship. Nope, you can amour tank it to about 2,000HPs, you can carry over 20 passenger. It is like a mini Python.

    I have my own method of calculating the standings and just ignore Fdev 2 points for every system 1 point for every favorable system -1 point for every unfavorable system My criteria simply is how far and how much a Power has spread his or her influence inline with their ethos. Population could easily be used in place of system count

    Ziljan replied to a thread No 5th Aegis CG in Aliens
    Yeah I was thinking guardian tech may be next too. I'm not sure we have everything we need though. We don't have an adequate defense against swarm missiles or the yellow lightning. Though the flak seems to take out missiles, and the lighting can sort of be dodged and may be subject to thermal resists (needs testing). Also we don't have any corrosion resistance or way to remove the ongoing effect in combat. Nor do we have a way to follow their wakes, which could require an updated xenoscanner and possibly a new jump drive.

    Looks like our human tech innovation has stalled. If the Thargoids continue to adapt while we stagnate, will humanity be doomed? What are we gonna do about this CMDRs?

About Arry

Basic Information

About Arry
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?
Somewhere near Sol?
Bones, chewing up things and spiting them out and the ocational ball licking.
See above?



WHAT!? You think I said or did something wrong again? Blame T.j's cat.

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?
