    Allitnil certainly has the experience, but I haven't heard his ideas on exploration revamps. Erimus just listed his ideas a page or so back, and they are genius. They don't necessarily require a change to the existing base mechanics and would dramatically enhance the experience of exploration.

    If I were working in customer support I'd be furious having to deal with censorship reports to manually uncensor individual names just because the devs forgot the most important part of any language filter: the checkbox to enable and disable it.

    I could get behind this, actually. Not only have I no desire to grind again for gear, I am also opposed to all the current saber rattling against the Thargoids, and sincerely hope FD have planned more for their story and just yet another "evil aliens want to kill as all because they are evil and alien" scenario (yawn).

    If someone works in the EU they may bring their family with them. The UK is not reciprocating. Does that not bother you at all?

    Still haven't got mine. Edit: Aaaand it arrived literally mere moments ago as of this edit. I miss the times when I could come back from work on Fridays and the newsletter is already there. It's become rather unrealiable in the recent weeks.

    true. The only advantage of the T-9 is that it costs about 200 Million less to outfit in trade mode and can use a C8 biweave for super fast regen. However, the shielded cargo capacity is nearly identical, and the jump range, shield strength, weaponry, module protection, boost speed, agility, hull are all weaker to MUCH weaker on the T-9. Still love the T-9 though, mostly for the amazing (wasted?) cockpit, and the feel of flying a massive-behemoth that actually feels like a massive behemoth ship. Really hope they use the reuse the T9 cockpit on the T10 defender, or something similarly awesome. :)

    The leaked paper was not. That there did more to sabotage the negotiations than anything else so far, at least that we know about. The EU want something in place beyond the power of the UK government, so that they can hold the UK to account should it start mistreating EU citizens in some way (a reasonable worry given leaks like that). It's happening on multiple fronts now. To say that the UK has become hostile to foreigners at an institutional level is undeniable.

    Gortron, these things are really happening. The home office are deporting and detaining more EU citizens than ever before. People have been refused "settled status" even though they've got kids here and are married to British citizens. Read. Whether you believe it or not is irrelevant. The EU knows it is happening, the various countries in the EU know it's happening, and as a result there is no political mileage for any EU political party to support Britain. In fact politicians can become popular promising to stand up to this sort of abuse of their citizens. The UK needs Europe for trade, for medicines, food, and some other things besides. This sort of thing is wrecking the chance of a decent post-Brexit relationship. That should worry you.

    As much as I like Obsidian as a person and an Elite newscaster, I would prefer to have a more technical expert like Erimus to be a player adviser to Frontier. Obsidian is a great YouTuber and promoter, but Erimus is an Explorer's Explorer with unsurpassed knowledge and experience and quite frankly a richer and deeper source of ideas for mechanics.

    And Cyprus, Malta, Sicily, etc. All islands, all quite comfortable in the EU. I don't think being an island has much to do with this to be honest. Barnier himself has brought this up, as well as Verhofstadt. If you live in a country for 15 years, put down roots, get pets, have kids, and then you get letters threatening to deport you that's not "hysterics", that's hostility. It's really happening to EU citizens living in the UK and it's really effecting the negotiations. That's objective fact Gortron.

    This is something I have been wanting for a long long time. I think it fits in perfectly with the current high wake jump boost mechanics, and imo should be applied to every kind of boosted jump. The bigger the boost, the more difficult the "interdiction type tunnel" should be. I would even be Ok with having a 20kLY jump range as long as the interdiction tunnel was vitually impossible to beat and failure meaning being thrown 20kLY off course and severely crippled ship, possible completely disabled if the AFMUs are too badly damaged. White dwarf binaries should be quite rare for a variety of reasons. 1) WD precursors are not all that common Pop I&II: B,A,F and Pop II: G 2) stars don't age at the same rate, lower mass stars burn slower and live longer lives on the main sequence (hence Sirius B was initially higher mass than sirius a) 3) stars in the future-WD mass range expand when they die, and this mass can accrete upon the companion star potentially altering its lifespan, or causing it to go...

    I got Elite with this compilation pack for the ZX spectrum. It cost me £10 at the time, an absolute fortune when you're 12ish. I remember playing it and loving it loads as a youngster. Probably my favorite game on the Speccy. I've got this memory of playing it, about Christmas time, really late, really cold, half playing and half watching the old Westworld movie after everyone else had gone to bed. My first sci-fi-gasm. I also believe it delayed me from discovering girls for at least 8 months.

    No? He want to be in good terms and maintain relations with the Eu while he bluntly saying out we have nothing to do with each others. Uh - oh! One or another! hate you or love you. But hate and love you in the same time? Together and apart? That's a very special kind of hell and no remotely sane person gets in a situation like this. Yes or no? Red or green? or alternatively there is the orange in the traffic light. You know? I just haven't made up my mind yet... But for pity sake! Don't use the two together. That's when the other got confused and do something stupid, or just do the smart thing and combat log to the other face and he is right about it. ;)

    What she's saying is pretty immaterial for two reasons. Firstly the EU are rigidly sticking to their schedules. Unless there is movement on their 3 main concerns (Irish border, Citz rights, finance) there won't be any deal or transition at all. Secondly the Home Office are, in their own way, doing more talking (and more damage) to this process than anyone else. If one reads the EU based press one gets a very different perspective on this. Those letters "accidentally" sent to EU nationals warning them to leave? The forced deportations which have gone right through the roof? The talk of using UK services like banks to find immigrants? The leaked documents which actually state they want to stop immigrants being able to settle in the UK? All incredibly damaging. It will take a lot to restore that trust.

    Thats just one part of the problem the other is some politician are trying to appeal to your emotions. I don't say the reason behind it to create rifts, they are doing it because it can pays off. But since emotional reasoning are capable to extreme polarisation especially if you trying to appeal to negative emotions this is how it will unavoidably ends. Edit; Economical inequality is just another emotional appeal. Appeal to pity toward the poorest. Or the opposite. we are rich, they want to take it!

    I would go with something like this for combat: You can use this shield build with any kind of build though (trade/blockade runs/bounty hunting/etc). The beauty of it is that the regen is so fast that all an NPC needs to do is run out of WEP for a few secs and you almost don't even need the SCBs. It can take quite a lot of punishment, even going toe to toe with the biggest baddest ships you'll find in a high CZ.

    Dunno? Passing time, debating about the things of the world what's interests us? You know, i'm intrested on it, with a lot of other peoples. And belíve it or not it counts. Especially because if in a democracy people ceases to care about it, than that democracy starting to move toward something else simply because they let the leaders do whatever they desire. Serious mistake! So i asking you if you don't care about it at least let others to do it. But i must also admit, some people just can't do it nicely so it is problematic. But the resolution is not to ban it, but regulate it. And yes also irritates a lot of people what i can understand. The resolution? Sociological and political questions need another sub session just like off topic, so it's won't disrupts regular off topic discussion. With even stricter regulations for example in off topic you can't post before a number of posts in politics? Temporal / permanent ban out from that session, if you are a troll. Simple. Edit; Politics, is off...
