    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

    Well if the cave had been found near here: (H G Wells crater - ) I'd have been more impressed. After all, H G Wells wrote about a race of insect-like creatures (Selenites) living in caves on the moon in 1901's "First Men on the Moon".

    Just as a bit of a light-hearted, slightly tangential thingie.... Laura Dern (Star Wars' purple-haired Resistance leader Amilyn Holdo): “Rian Johnson (the director) keeps telling this really embarrassing story about how when he got in the editing room – ...I do have weaponry in a scene.... – he literally heard me making sounds, ............, on camera you hear me going “‘pew, pew pew'”. “I was so excited to be there, that I really did think I was at play”. :D

    You just had to use a derogatory term eh? Some of us are just not into the combat side because we suck at it big time and no matter how many times we get told to we are just not of the right mind-set to "git gud". :P

    Not if you pick the right one. I use the mocha one and it is great, keeps the radar icons and faces are ok too. P.S. If you stick your sig graphic in your BB sig option (settings / edit signature) it will save you pasting it in every time.

    Yes, stipulated, however not being "forced" into something doesn't mean you are not manipulated into it - NPC pirates and gaining access to certain engineers for example plus of course being "tempted" to go murder some pixels to scavenge their bits (yes I get them without doing that so far). So not forced but not exactly completely optional. ;)

    I too think it a good idea but needs to be a facility that can be disabled / enabled as your circumstances dictate. Just add it to the list in the Functions tab of the RHS UI screen like orbit lines, beacon, etc.

    I would tend to disagree. Combat-focused features far outnumber other types. Look at the variation in weaponry and other combat related mods for example - not much love for mining, exploration and zero for trading in RNGineers. Of course F D knows what it's player-base mainly engages in (we don't) and so caters to it. So even though it might not have been a design objective you can't deny that there is an enormous skewing towards the pew-pew-pew aspect of the game.

    I was finding the same as the OP stated , missions were not spawning when i docked . Switched from Mobius Euro to Mobius original and missions spawn as they should. Perhaps worth trying a few different modes to see if that helps . Also , I am finding that the message HUD is a bit faulty and doesn't always delete offered missions that have been declined or deleted , thus stopping further of these types of mission from spawning when you land at OO . Solution is to Filter Messages -> Clear all messages. This seems to allow the Palin missions to be offered again. Hope that helps some.

    ...Now, call me selfish if you want BUT I'm actually pretty sure that I speak for all those who chose to play the game their way when I say: Every person that who thinks that is it their right and duty to tell other players how to play their game is diminishing their experience and ( that of) everyone else. It's such a shame.... Now if that was your original post i could agree with you , sadly not. Such a shame. In the words of my grandmother . " So glad you have an opinion , so sorry you feel the need to express it ."

    ... I should point out that I don't know what E D produces but I do know that the SPDIF output from my MOBO is fed from the audio circuitry on the board so any DTS encoding is done by that equipment, the same on-board audio equipment that is decoding whatever E D is producing and providing the direct 5.1 surround connectors on the rear of the MOBO (clustered with the TOSLink connector).

    There was a hint there in my post: "... prior to re-equipping with HDMI stuff my previous ...".

    Interesting - prior to re-equipping with HDMI stuff my previous home cinema system used fibre-optic connections and the AVRx decoder produced good quality 5.1 from Dolby and DTS sources. Although originally an electronics engineer I have not followed things very much after I moved into education many years ago so I am not going to argue with you. EDIT - Just checked and it seems that my mobo (Maximus VIII Hero) uses DTS Connect over the SPDIF so that explains how the decoder is actually decoding 5.1 and not just producing simulated surround. Still prefer the direct outputs though. :) Further Edit: Just realised that I never mentioned that I am running W7 and there does seem to be some issue with W10 and the "audio stack" (whatever that is) so my contribution here has been worse than useless, sorry @OP.

    You might be interested to voice support in this suggestion thread: It might do no good but it can't hurt to have people ask for it.
