    Yes, you can do this but it's not as cheap as a Sidewinder any more! That's a good thing.

    It's interesting to me that most of the people saying they can't make enough money in the game don't want to play the game much before they get all the rewards in the game. The same people will turn around and call the game boring when they didn't even spend the time to know the game. There are currently at least two other threads like this one: "The Trail I Want to Blaze" and "The Biggest Request of 2.3 or 2.4: Please let us make money." For those who want to spend any time at all getting to know this game, it is easy to make the credits. I'll argue that it's much easier than it was and much easier than it should be, at this point to get, to the first large ship. As a result, the game is starting to attract gamers who are used to games that give them nearly everything up front and will still complain that its current pace of completion to be too slow. The only end result of this slide toward instant gratification would kill this game. I know that's not where Frontier will let the game go, so I'm not...

    As I said in the "The Trail I Want to Blaze" thread which should have been titled "The trail I won't spend the time to blaze". It applies in this thread too: For those who want to spend any time at all getting to know this game, it is easy to make the credits. I'll argue that it's much easier than it was and much easier than it should be, at this point to get, to the first large ship.

    Hmm. That's too bad! The 2017 live showing seemed live to me when they did it. They had a team of people actively playing the "game" in a live play fashion. Not just a couple people, but about 15 or so toward the end in the capital ship / carrier fight scenes. I know the scope of the game is maddeningly huge and there are a lot of bugs they were mostly avoiding, but it still looks like a fair amount of content to me. I still have some hope. To what others who were pointing out that all of what they showed was not in the next 3.0 alpha. I did realize that. That wasn't bothering to me. I just hope that what they do release for 3.0 is substantial enough and playable enough.

    We are now 8+ days into the longest (mass) expedition ever attempted in the history of Elite: Dangerous, and I have a good feeling about this :) Despite initial problems with the mass jump (and we'll probably see more mass jump challenges), many of you have already made it to BC1, let it be no secret that I'm particularly happy to see an Imperial Cutter arriving to 3 Geminorum, indicating that almost anything is within our reach. I'm also happy in the way many DECE explorers are being helped when they ask for assistance, e.g. routes or material gathering. This thread & our Discord channel has been a great facilitator in that respect, and I see many happy exchanges there. The DECE Candy thread was off to a flying start, and I'm amazed how many spectacular shots & videos there's been posted already. In a few hours the expedition will have made more than 50.000 jumps and traveled over a million light years according to edsm.net and that is pretty awesome to me. Our brilliant scouting team have...

    I suggest the entire thread is reviewd once more on reasons given. In short, those witgh the deepest pockets dominate the franchise, thus removing the RPG-y-ness of it, as one can simply buy ones way up the ranks Munchkin style.

    Now I do recall that I was pretty hyped about BC3000ad back in the day before we saw it ... in all its glory. Had forgotten that. SC did recently show the process of taking a mission and a capital ship / carrier fight. I thought that had some great potential. Still rooting for them ... not backing ... just rooting!

    Non-sense. I didn't blog calling people names like DS did and did't claim expertise. Newspapers ... relevance?

    I can't figure out why people even react to DS any more. He's never accomplished any relevant product. I don't see the "bad blood" people are talking about in this thread? I don't follow SC a lot, but was very impressed with the last demo of SC 3.0 content. I think it may still have a chance.

    Have not happened to me yet, quite the opposite with a number of 'guided' entries with nothing in front of me, feverishly throttling to zero throttle thinking 'oh noes, a black hole!'. Heard similar stories of CMDRs landing in-between anyway, if it doesn't work and can't be trusted, then I prefer the old way any day.

    Using Distant Worlds to further the search for Raxxla, eh?

    Not a bad idea, just know that there are people that will try and take that promised land from you.

    Ah, but I must introduce myself, yes? I am The Man of Many Names, though in this instance you may call me Draseus.

    I've been after Raxxla for a long, long time, and I can see it's your dream too, isn't it CMDR?

    Take heed, Raxxla is the ultimate goal, but just like anything else in the Universe, there will be forces that exist solely to stop you, forces that may come from anywhere, and anytime.

    Always remember CMDR, though those of us that hunt Raxxla with a cocky air about us talk about how we'll only find it if we help one-another.....

    Just how many people would be willing to share such a rich treasure? Your best friend becomes your worst enemy when something that can give one as much power as Raxxla can is on the line, I learned that the hard way.

    Be careful, and always know that there are forces bigger than the Dark Wheel watching, waiting for you to slip up in your quest.

    Don't you worry though, I'm pulling for you to succeed, and hope to see you at the metaphorical gates one day, CMDR.
