    Your overall post isn't the clearest but I'm guessing that the government of NZ has suspended a tax cut in order to pay benefits or offer tax credits to families? First of all you need to determine who really are your "economic betters". A guy of 22 on 10 an hour could actually better off economically than a woman of 35 on 30 an hour, if he lives with his parents and she has a child and a stay at at home hubby, rent, water bills, gas bills etc. This is why taxation and benefit systems are so complex and attempts to "simplify" them become exercises in creating poverty. Secondly, yes, this sort of thing: ...is indicative of a lack of compassion and the "me me me" way of thinking that informs objectivism. You can do this with anything. I'm paying taxes for peoples brain surgery who ride bikes and got hit by cars. I am paying taxes for the chemotherapy of people who smoked. I'm paying taxes for libraries I don't use, schools my kid isn't in, old peoples pensions that don't do anything, and for...

    Looking at these pictures feels a bit like watching that film of the japanese marine biologist who filmed the live giant squid a few years ago.

    I only encountered them twice, yet and the first time I quickly saw the red glow and it ended with the rebuy screen only seconds later. When I was hyperdicted, my ship was completely dark like i've been hit by an emp and it took a moment to reboot. I didn't have any visual of the Thargoid during that time so I have no idea if he scanned me. When my DBX had the rebooting sequence completed, I put everything into engines and tried a brave Sir Robin. Took a little while for me to realize that the alien was right behind me all the time, 'staring' at me. I find the details in your pics are amazing.

    Looks different, mine didn't have that green glow or at least very little of it. We know that their technology is organic, so possibly their ships grow and age. Maybe the ship on my pictures is still a child, while the one that you encountered is an adult?

    The Problem is. Any Plot that would at this point in time suggest an Peaceful Approach would be highly Unrealistic and would result in the entire thing becoming extremely Generic. Even more so than it already is on some other Edges. Thargoids have come out and Attack us. An Species that we cannot Talk to and have no means to Communicate with has started Attacking us with Superior Weaponry and Technology. So at this point the Logical Focus of everyone is Countermeasures. Once we are further into the War. Its likely that Focus will Shift towards Understanding the Enemy to be able and Formulate Effective Means towards Defeating it. Intelligence and maybe at some point Communications might become possible and once this happened there might be options for an more Peaceful and Scientific Approach.

    About 5 hours ago, on my way from Maia to HIP 17125, I was hyperdicted by a Thargoid vessel (quite an experience, I can tell you). It was one of those that do nothing, but seem to stare at you, keeping the distance and mimic every move you make. My cargo bay was empty, so I couldn't offer him (or her?) a decent cup of tea or meta alloys. As it didn't show any signs of hostility or reaction to the lights of my ship, I decided to take some screenshots. Always trying to keep a distance of exactly 461m: Even at full boost it stayed with me:

    Well. I think the last thing we need is more World. I think the Galaxy is Big enough lol. We need something to Fill it. Not even more Empty Room xD As for Expansions. Well as you have apparently not noticed it. But that has more or less already happened. None of em Costs 50 Euro alone anymore. By now the Base Game as well as Horizons has already gone down to 25 Euro each. Meaning they now together cost 50 Euro. The Package which includes some Packs costs 50 Euro total. So while I doubt that they will Include the Prior Expansions completely for Free. Its likely that just like most Games. The older Expansions etc will become Cheaper as additional Expansions come out. So it will be more like. Latest Expansion sitting between 30-50 Euro and the older ones going down to 10-20 Euro each. I also assume that there will be Packages available at all times which will offer the Complete Game with all Expansions for something around 50-70 Euro.

    Well I am sure most of you have heard the News. For those who did not. https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2017/10/09/squadrons-and-fleet-carriers-are-coming-to-elite-dangerous-in-2018-for-free/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+rockpapershotgun%2Fsteam+%28Rock%2C+Paper%2C+Shotgun%3A+Steam+RSS%29 So. Now this Begs alot of Questions I am sure :) Alot of Questions about just what Carriers will look and work like. Just what Squadrons are going to be like and how far they will be Integrated into the Game. But what Bugs me in all of this. Is the Emphasize on this being Free Updates.

    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...

    This Game has alot of Black Knights which will by default call Doomsday on whatever FD does. And alot of White Knights which will by default Deny that FD could ever have done anything Wrong. :) As you have already realized. Its always the very same Names you see for this. So the Easiest Solution in General is. To just use the Ignore Function of the Forum. So that their Posts Dissappear and you can Focus on the Posts of the Remaining Community which is more Open to Discussion on Matters ;)

    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.

    Don't be silly. The idea that people travel thousands of miles and risk drowning for the thrilling prospect of a min-wage job in the snow is just not rational. Aiding refugees and giving them safe haven is the very definition of humanitarian. "Virtue signalling" is a meaningless phrase that is only ever used by people who not only don't understand empathy but are actually often incapable of it. The same sort of rationalization is used to explain "virtue signalling", and this rationalization is absolutely beyond awful in both its conclusions and its, for want of a better word, reasoning.

    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.

    The thing is nobody owes the UK for that. We talk English cause the British Empire spread it so far that its common. And most of this spread was not something you would want others to pay back. Humanity Evolves and nobody owes anyone on that. This aint about Demeaning the UK or anything. Its just about the Simple Fact that we are not responsible for our Ancestors and that we are not bound to repay their debts. Be it a debt of blood paid in revenge or be a debt of Culture for what they achieved. And well.
