    Agony_Aunt replied to a thread Ship buying in Xbox One
    Do you have Horizons? You need Horizons to be able to purchase a Dolphin. The only Saud Kruger ship you can buy without Horizons is the Orca. If you have Horizons, you can use eddb.io to find the nearest station which sells them.

    I just wanted to start by saying that I applaud FDev's efforts to improve the "Crime & Punishment" system. However, I have a few ideas about how it can, IMHO, be improved even further. Death shouldn't wipe bounties: Pretty much what the title says. To me, the best solution to the Suicidewinder exploit is to have it that player death never wipes-nor even makes dormant-the active bounties a Commander has. At best, player death should cause a bounty to go dormant for a short, set period of time (say, up to 1 hour) before becoming active again. The only way a bounty should ever become dormant in the longer term is by having it expire naturally. Then, when the Dormant bounty expires, it converts to a Fine, which can turn back into a bounty if it is not paid within a set period of time. Grades of Wanted: As a trade off for non-expiring Bounties, I think we need grades of "Wanted", based on how big our current bounties are-from Petty Criminal, to Minor Criminal, to Major Criminal, to Notorious Criminal all...

    "Fun" is subjective. Just because for YOU the journey is not fun, doesn't mean it's like that for everyone. Any sources of this information by chance? How do you know that most people do A-B trading? How do you know that minority of people have avoided that. Please provide some sources behind these "facts". Otherwise they are just your speculation, nothing else. See, Subnautica kept me entertained for about 13 hours (or so my Steam says). Then it became a boring grind for me - and at that point I stopped playing it. Things like that are purely subjective, as we all have a different perception of "fun". So just because you found it non-grindy... You know, to me there is something wrong with the design management of Subnautica. And Elite kept me going for nearly 1400 hours and I'm still not bored at all, still have dozens of little goals to achieve - and my journey, which as you say is the point of the game, consists of achieving them. There are hundreds of hours of FUN in front of me and I am...

    So here's the deal.....I absolutely *adore* this game, & am seriously looking forward to what 2.4 & beyond will bring. However I've been playing the game almost continuously since December 2014, which has led to several other great games I've bought in that time falling by the wayside-almost un-played (a testament to how addictive this game is ;) ) & also has me concerned that I could end up becoming burned out on the game. So I'm turning to the community for advice. As I see it, I have 3 main options- (a) Keep playing as I always have, & deal with any burn-out if or when it actually occurs. (b) Keep playing, but make it my secondary, rather than primary game (assuming I can even manage to do that!) (c) Just stop playing altogether, at least until 2.4 Beta drops....& use that time to play some of the other long-neglected titles on my "shelf". So, guys, I'm leaving it up to you to help me decide. I'm leaning heavily towards option (b), but fear that I won't be able to stick to it! Any advice you...

    Just watched the vid in the OP. Chap in the video holds Minecraft up as a gold standard because it's different but mostly the same every time you start it, complains that other open world games don't have an engaging story that encourages you to visit more of the map & learn all the skills. Minecraft doesn't do this either. I've played Minecraft, my son & I used to start a new multiplayer map every year & play it through, I've done the get all achievements thing, but after a while you have had enough & play another game. My son moved on to terreria & more recently the new Zelda game, I've got ED. To me ED plays out much the same. The most exciting, risky bit is the first few days when you don't really know what you're doing, a joy that diminishes to a chore each time you start again (so I haven't so far in ED) because most of the fun comes from learning stuff, and once you know, you know. I can see that the video makes a reasonable, idealistic point but not one that really applies to ED. When I...

    I totally agree. That's why I've never been interested in buying a Ferrari, it's just another crappy reskin of all those other cars. (Not gonna visit Canada either - it's just a reskin of New Zealand). :rolleyes:

    To be fair, though, piracy is easier post 2.2 than it has even been before. Hatchbreaker limpets are more agile & can pass through shields, making it a much easier thing to do a quick "snatch & grab".....often without alerting the Authorities to your presence. Yes the commander can turn & fight.....but that just gives you the chance to steal more cargo. When you think they're on the verge of doing some real damage, just hightail it out of there with your ill-gotten gains.

    On my pc account, its what most would think of as the standard way to play. Taken a few losses and carried on regardless...did a bit of everything jack of all trades master of none. On my console account, I play ironman mode...one life and when it ends I wipe the save and start again. Exploration only apart from a short time trading to afford a better ship and modules but almost all money earned is through exploration scan data. No guns, no sheilds ^

    Im a gank magnet, been ganked multiple times so I just dont play in open at all anymore. Now of course, it wouldnt matter if Im in open or solo...Im in the middle of nowhere and aint seen another soul in months...got sidetracked on my way to jacques and off course by about 8klys. Im never around other players enough to find out if they hostile or not, but experience tells me life is just easier in solo. I will admit though, it was worse on my pc account ^

    I wonder if the changing memory locations are done intentionally to stop people writing autopilot cheats. If you can read from the memory relliably, you can write to the memory. Unless, FD had fixed locations for read only data for stuff like this, so changing those locations wouldn't cause any changes to the game itself. Not sure, just musing.

    Genuinely meant no disrespect...thats impressive, really. Good luck with the project m8...see now thats something I would pay for because Im disabled and cant use standard office chairs. I cant tolerate standard chairs fer more than 30 minutes at a time. The chair in that picture is very similar to the old suspension rocker chairs a few years back...300 quid they were but damn were they sweet chairs. Rocked so hard, ye had to bolt it into a solid floor although that was fer racing games from yesteryear when wheels and pedals were all the rage. Until this, all Ive seen are modified cockpits or "command centres" fer this genre of games...thats why your example is truly impressive. Dont see one of those every day ^

    the "Illicit cargo" goes for any jurisdiction in the system you are jumping to, pretty much as it will show wanted, if you are wanted with any of the minor factions in system. e.g. kamitra cigars are illegal in most federal juridictions, so they will show "illicit cargo", a long as there is 1 minor faction in system that makes kamitra cigars illegal, whether they control the system itself or not. as you can have several jurisictions in the same system, I'm pretty sure it is working as intended.

    Oh Id side with the enemy in a heartbeat...I could take over in the probing department if they get bored dealing with the dirty slimy monkey things. Im fairly happy just watching mankind burn to be honest...my anti authority nature doesnt make a distinction between any of the powers and I would be indifferent to any of them. I have no issues pushing anyone of you lot in front of me to save my own worthless yellow hide...really :cool: Now if they offered me credits...well thats a bonus, but Im certainly ok with doing small jobs on a volunteer basis ^

    Added rep to the op but just wanted to ask, was this a serious question? I only ask because Ive seen similar setups which are entirely home made and mostly from old junk. Mean no disrespect to op even though it does have a very creative look about it...very impressive and very comfy by the looks of that sofa in the middle ^
