    Given the stratospheric agility of the iFighter and the durability of the Taipan, I think they could have given the Condor slightly worse transverse acceleration than the Taipan and been very balanced in the end.

    Why would I use a small ship tactic from the bridge of a big old ship? Especially when big ship tactics (see above) work so much better! :P A highly skilled stealth Cobra 4 (honestly one the better pilots I've seen, the same guy in Morbads video) tried going up against my Corvette. He barely escaped with 1% hull intact and only then because the instance crashed. So, I guess you could say I live in the very real (Virtual) world of Elite Dangerous.

    You can't. Panite can only be mined. Unless beta has changed that. If that's the case, Seline Jean will have many new customers!

    Create pirate and bounty hunter ranking paths that unlock ships, gear, bases as you rank up. Exclusively join one or the other to engage in lawful cat and mouse pvp. If pirates kill innocents PC then the ship value is added to a bounty and a hunter can track them. I posted a more complete overview on a thread I started on this, oh, a year ago ish. As I understand it tracker limpet and Karma is going to be the way forward.

    Hmm, are you sure about seeing the arms? Most of Andromeda is hidden by dust. With the naked eye you can see the galactic core, about the width of the moon in the sky. However if not for the dust, you would see Andromeda stretching six times the width of the moon in or skies. It would be the most obvious and dramatic thing in the night sky. Even in ED we are just seeing the core. (but given some of the other clangers (Pleiades in infra-red anyone?), I suspect they just did not know better.

    I think it may have been little earlier than that. E&B was 2002. The original Elite (with the 2001 inspired rotating docking) was published in 1984.

    Shipping lanes? Smuggler at Nav beacons Combat Aftermaths in Shipping lances Some ships you wouldn't expect might drop what you are looking for Conductive Ceramics for example state can be found "Ship salvage (transport ships), Signal source (anarchy)" but Anacondas in CZ can leave them as Salvage as the Anaconda is in the list of transport ships

    Did you see DBs video from Pax? All that talk of 'possible' interdictions, and 'did it really happen' followed immediately by a video of it happening. Seems to me that the original plotline had us wondering if there was instead of thargoids, a massive conspiracy, and this snippet is part of that. Nobody but the deranged is falling for it.

    Following your idea: I dislike playing a space ship shooter game for it's combat mode. Some do like it, but to me it's tedious and boring. I claim the reason is because the ship can only face each other, they can't move and can only shoot the same weapon by repeatidly hitting space every 30 second and j every minute then wait and that the outcome is always the same with no interaction other than those 2 keypress. Well you know what, I'd be damn right as the barebone design would be at fault. Known fact. You're a troll and better understand it. Known fact Won't reply to your useless post anymore.

    I must agree here about lack of content but disagree with your previous post which seemed against 4k tv. True, there's not that much content to watch in 4k. A few series on netflix, few nature/sport video on youtube and 4k HDR movies that are being release more often but not always coming from real 4k content anyway. Yet, I already have a few decent PC, a few decent headphones, some decent HT speakers (well, maybe not that decent anymore and the receiver clearly is lacking). What's wrong if I treat myself with a nice 4K 3d Oled so I can enjoy the few source giving me such a maverlous picture? Sure cable looks no better than with previous TV, but those Hawaii 4k Video on youtube are breath taking and 1080p can't come close to it.

    I thought Pan-Am was a bit more obvious (within it's obscurity). As a young child I used to have a model of the Orion III. I loved it.

    Cobra 4 vs any of the big 3, disabling/countering shields with rails?? Lololololol. Yeeeeah.... right. Maybe if the illuminati are drugging the big 3 pilots. Rails on a small ship, burning through thousands of MJ of shields enough to convince a big 3 pilot to use SBCs...lol. Assuming the rail cobra lives that long, they will have a heat sig that will light up like a xmas tree completely eliminating their small ship advantage. I could rip them apart with an SLF before they could even drop my shields, and have done exactly this vs Elite beta testers trying out your "deluxe" Cobra 4. The only hope of a Cobra 4 is use mines/torps/stealth to dive bomb my ship before they get whittled to pieces by the larger ship. This is a valid strat, but takes ages and is easily countered by emissive + missiles/kinetic weapons. A couple solid hits from PA volleys and they are toast with non-functioning external modules. And Cobra 4s are exceedingly easy to hit with PAs when they turn for their next strafing run.

    The problem with a multi-year game is everyone ends up with enough money to buy almost any ship they want, so money can't really be used as a balancing factor. FD could go for a rock-paper-scissors like model where everything has some unique advantage, but that won't really work either with 30+ distinct ships in the game. I think the best hope for ships like the Asp Scout would be some unique cosmetics (shipkits, or even at some point in the future, different cockpit/dashboard)

    I agree. This is an incredibly accurate and astute social commentary; on ourselves as spectators of - rather than participants in - our own lives. On our own flawed and confused life priorities. And on our superficiality and lack of respect for what's gone before. Well done, FD! :P

    In another thread about ship names, I said one of my three Pythons was called the 'Pan-Am'. This is due to the ship kit parts I stuck on it. It then occurred to me that a lot of people would be too young to get the reference, and how it links to Elite. It then occurred to me that those same folks may not have any idea where 'the slot' and the docking computer music (By the beautiful blue Danube) come from. Let's fix that. Let's go back to time before Star Wars, and see some of the inspiration for Elite.

    Don't trim them, make them fold more? I'd love to see ships with massive wings that have to be folded up for landing, like the Imperial Shuttles from SW. Ideally, the retraction operation is done manually when extending the landing gear, so if you forget to do so...................

    Personally, I think it'd be too easy & boring if your crew always survived. It's probably too annoying if they always die. I'd prefer one of the following: - Your crew have a (dare I say the word) random chance of getting to an escape pod in the event of ship destruction. The higher their rank, the smarter/better they are at this. This could add an element of tension/suspense when you get back to the station and want to see if they survived too. - You (as captain/helm) have to manually issue the order to abandon ship. But it takes a certain period for them to make it to the pods. Too late, and they won't make it. Too soon, and the crew who might have been able to help you survive are gone. Or perhaps you DO survive, but the rest of your crew are halfway back to your home station and you have to go pick them up again. This approach would make it a bit more skillful / strategic.
