    I have to agree in part with the gist of the OP. F D obviously decided that you would have to be forced into certain modes of play in order to unlock each engineer. To me some of that "hoop-jumping" was/is incongruous as well as being a pain.

    In the post above mine, Eventure (the author) stated that changing the 30Ly range will produce a larger starter database. The distance figure (10,000 default) is the max distance of the markets from the arrival point - it is the 30Ly one that should make a difference. I am just a user (lightweight at that) of the system, rely on Eventure for accuracy.

    The thing about "Emergency Accommodation" provision is that the local authority is not legally bound to provide it if it can be said that the person(s) have made themselves "intentionally homeless". I believe that they find all sorts of excuses reasons why someone has "intentionally" become homeless and of course males seem to provide them with either more of an excuse or perhaps make them (the decider) feel less "guilty" about classifying them that way. (That is just my subjective view, I have no evidence to support it.) There is a further issue beyond the emergency provision and that is the allocation of social housing tenancy depends on a points-based qualification and of course single people with no disabilities / health problems qualify for the lowest points. My daughter worked for the local authority where she lives, a long way from my home - when I retired she made enquiries (without asking me) about getting me into a council retirement bungalow (you know the sort of thing) in her area and they...

    If you do this, make sure you copy your journal files first otherwise you may lose your locally held data (not your in-game stats etc, they are on the server) - They can be found in the Users/**yourname**/Saved Games/Frontier Developments/Elite Dangerous directory.

    I have not tried this but since you have just started using it, the changes won't hurt: You could try building another "Starter Database" but this time increasing the variables, further than the default 30 LY range and larger distance so that should produce more trade markets in your database than you collected using 30Ly default. I don't know what the maximum this will / can do. N.B Creating a starter database overwrites your current database I believe, so bear that in mind - it is a "fresh start". EDIT - Ninja'd by the Eventure themselves. ;)

    A single British born older male, is right at the bottom of the allocation list for even those places. I have to ask; do they treat refugees in the same way? Putting them into instant debt.

    If you just click on the search icon with a blank field, you get a better search page (Advanced Search) open - it is still not the be-all-and-end-all but I find it suffices (others use Google).

    Sorry to hear that, never heard of that before - post your issue in the thread and one of the developers will assist, they are usually "on the ball".

    I won't engage with people on my ignore list so I don't refer to anything your quote mentioned. However, today's Observer has an interesting article about a "Shelter" report: Housing crisis threatens a million families with eviction by 2020 Report shows combination of low wages, freezes to benefits and rising costs of renting could cause more than 1 million households to become homeless By December 2016, nearly 76,000 households were living in emergency temporary accommodation such as bed and breakfasts, of which 60,000 were families with children or pregnant mothers. This is more than 10% up on the previous year and 58% more than in 2010 when just over 48,000 households were living in temporary accommodation.

    I don't know of any way of entering markets (stations) without visiting them other than the initial "starter database" which gets all markets within the "setup" parameters selected on the TCE Relay page - by default 30LY from your current location I believe. As to the sharing of market data, as I said, using the "Update Prices" option on th TCE Relay page updates your database with all the prices for the markets you have - so the data from other people is shared.

    People? Who whom are we meant to blame for what happened at the latest tower fire? You are correct; you should not see yourself and a part of them and us. If you are genuine part of them; you would not be here, conversing with the common masses. If you were us and by us; I mean those lost by the state in general. Those struggling to pay the bills and eat; those who cannot afford a holiday and even if we could find a way to have one; we would probably have to explain and even ask permission to leave town and take that holiday. By us I mean, going to the store and counting the total cost of the items you are adding the the basket. Yes it is all relative, even the rich man, has issues paying his bills sometimes, because his bills are bigger and he still has to work to a budget. However: When you are being given less than you need to pay your rent; by a government that blames you for the cost of it. When you understand; that due to greed (a Tory trait) you are to become homeless, ...

    It is essentially a personal database so you have to actually go to stations (markets) and add that market to your database - that is just two clicks "new market" and "save". From then on every time you dock there your database is updated with the prices etc. (See my note following for better news...) You can update the prices for all markets in your database when you start TCE - you use the "TCE Relay" button then select "update prices" and it syncs your database with it's latest available prices.

    I've been playing around 2yrs now and spent most of it as a member of the Mobius group. Around 3mths ago I had become confident enough in my combat skills to attempt to play in Open and now I play in Open all the time. Honestly I think it is a bit like the present day media who believe that if they repeat something enough people will stupidly take it as the truth. Playing in Open the last three months has shown me that there is virtually no difference in my game experience, try it out you will see.

    They realised Chump was going to win, or better still; they could not win without him, so they chose a side. I have said before: To the Republicans, it does not matter how long Chump lasts, they have their vice president waiting in the wings. In the mean time, it is 'yes Mr President, no Mr president'. Toad eaters until it is time to get the knives out, when they can be sure to take him out.

    Actually it was "New Labour" - otherwise known as pink Tory or blue Labour - a centrist movement put together to court right-wing interests to back a non-Tory government. As one of many that ripped up their membership cards at the Clause IV shamefulness in 1995 I (and many others) feel that they went too far and embraced neo-liberalism too eagerly. (It took the leadership contest of 2010 to bring me back into the party.)
