    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.

    No, not at all, I do not accept that. Deacon he was the first disabled superstar on children's TV to be treated normally, he was a smart man and I as a disabled man look back on his legacy and escapades with admiration: "In 1981, during the last year of his life , Joey Deacon was featured on the children's magazine programme Blue Peter for the International Year of the Disabled. He was presented as an example of a man who achieved a lot in spite of his disabilities."

    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...

    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?

    Uh oh, are we gonna get a 5th Aegis CG, or did all of the complaints about boring CG mechanics have the unintended consequence of stopping the flow of goodies?

    For the people wondering how their ship could sustain damage even with "low speed" realize your ship is MASSIVE, which means even a slow impact carries a huge amount of energy. Eg, Even an impact at 5m/s of a 2000 T space ship is like getting hit with 25 MJ (KE = 1/2mV^2) of absolute hull damage to your unmodded integrity. Why unmodded? In Elite the game doesn't seems to care how much hull you have when colliding with immovable objects. Hence the game seems to model these collisions as inelastic, which means that all of the energy is converted into deformation of the ship's core frame. This is different from two colliding ships where both objects are movable and of somewhat comparable mass. For the people wondering why their gear isn't buffering the impact, realize that if your gear isn't lined up with the terrain, then you're potentially damaging your landing gear / impinged hull. It would be like jumping into the air, flopping like a fish, landing with your legs at a funny angle, and wondering...

    The trick is to line up perfectly on a nice flat area, and then toggle FA until you drift via gravity to the surface and the landing gear engages. Eg, NEVER use down thrust or even slow momentum to reach the ground. Toggle only. Ideally you should finish with FA on and the barest passsive downward vector. Speed should still read 0 the whole time. 1 at the most. EDIT: For this to work, FA button must be set to HOLD. Not TOGGLE.

    Cool theory. Until I see evidence, ammonia based life forms are still KOS. Wouldn't surprise me if it were true though. Would be a nice twist.

    Hull damage from landing without shields? What speed are you landing??? No need for hull damage if you fly it right ;).

    I laughed at this then realised this sucks hard. I hope you get this sorted mate. Still a very good "Dit" (Navy slang for short funny story) anyways:). Incidentally...DECE talk show? Is this a discord channel? (Don't use discord as much as I should).

    Yes the "Git Gud" folks seem to be missing a trick it seems to me: I'd argue that ED is like Chess, in that it is good practice to help out others novice to the game to get the most from it, as gunning after absolute beginners for the sake of it is a hollow victory in which you learn little.

    You know mate, that is exactly my sentiment. I backed SC with much excitement on the back of ED, yet, now, with a heavy heart I fear Derek Smart was right and Chris Roberts bit off more than he could chew. I do not think SC will ever see the light of day, but it's nothing compared to the 120 I invesrted in PopSlate 2. Anyway, sorry...that's a bit of a tangent to the OP...carry on chaps.

    My bad, yes. I meant Mobius & Fozza are PvE areas that are essentially PvE with humans and NPCs
