    The way to keep.people interested is to make each mission feel as different as possible from every other mission-even if they are technically the same template. For instance-via text, mission wrinkles & mission follow-ons it would be possible to ensure that no two massacre missions is exactly the same....but that would actually necessitate the end of mission stacking exploits.

    They hate it.....yet they do it anyway. What illogical behaviour. I never mission stack & I never mode switch....yet I always manage to find enough rewarding missions to keep me entertained. I find it's only the people who think there is some imminent end game and/or who are obsessed with achieving the biggest gains in the shortest time-frame who engage in these activities. I really don't see a reason to pander to this sub-group of players.

    In General you are right Op alltough I'm guessing this is about recent events in America. Which outta be extreme as it is extreme with a clear side whos right and a clear side whos wrong. It maddens my mind how people could come out with some "Both sides" Crap in regards to Charlottesville. Sometimes a side truly is just wrong, evil stupidity.

    Oh......and PULSARS. Seriously, everyone complains about how boring exploration is.....but when someone suggests spicing it up a bit, they all complain. I don't think Cosmo was saying "instant death if you're in the same system"....but face-planting one should be almost a death sentence, with a huge amount of skill required to escape from it if you crash into it.

    I agree. Also, why not make those solar ejections from regular stars more meaningful too? Maybe certain stars can have "hot-spots" that allow for faster refueling, but are also more unstable-throwing out flares with only a moments warning-& heating your ship up at a faster rate.....thus offering up a challenge beyond "park your ship above a star & refuel". Likewise, beyond making black holes simply dangerous.....offer some game play around it. Like with neutron stars and white dwarfs, black holes could offer massive boosts to FSD range.....but at massive risk. Likewise, why not gravitational & navigational hazards to force players to make something other than a beeline to a destination. At the end of the day, what I think I am saying is that-with hull repair limpets & AMFD's-there is really no reason not to make Elite: DANGEROUS live up to its name ;).

    Unplayable? Nothing in the game is, "I don't like it" is not the same as "unplayable". I never engage in mission stacking, but really enjoy doing massacre & surface scan missions.....whilst still seeing where they can be improved.....but improved doesn't mean "leave in an obvious exploit".

    Well, that sucks.....'cause those are the worst ones. Hopefully Beta 2 will sort that out. You've bug reported it, I hope?

    I don't see it as an inconsistency. Maybe UC has a deal to pay a "finders fee" to the Factions that control the station at which the data is handed in?

    I think you, me & Cosmic have posted something like that on the suggestion page in the last year or so ;).

    Yep, why grind at all? Just playing at my own pace, & enjoying every minute. I also have never understood the point of stacking missions of exactly the same type. I always like to grab a diverse range of missions-which is why I crave more mission templates (like Escort, Surface Rush, Don't Get Scanned & In Safe name a few) in future. What I also most want from missions is for them to be better differentiated via the in-game text(s), & for them to almost always throw up unexpected surprises-via wrinkles and follow-ons.

    If it helps my first task when I logged onto the beta was to sell about 250m Cr of exploration data, with plenty of first discoveries. While most got zero bonus there were some (maybe 10%) that did give extra credits. Mostly low value (~1400Cr), with some higher (~30,000Cr). Some of my data pre-dates the value increase.

    New legal systems are one of the things being tested in this update. If it bothers you so much, either become a griefer yourself for the duration, or switch to Private/Solo for the beta.

    No, only the image on your scanner-hollow vs solid. It goes solid if hardpoints are deployed though. Personally, that is how I wanted it to be from the get-go.

    Oh dear. So, any guesses on what they will name this revolutionary tech of being able to open and close doors in a computer game?

    Indeed. Rockstar have built a long and solid reputation as winners. And on the other side you have Chris Roberts with a rather up and down history. His main success was the wing commander series. After that, things haven't gone so well in the game development arena.

    So, are you still going to implement the chat filter? I don't need to ready everything my NPC says in chat. It quickly fills up and obscured/removes messages from Friends that I actually want to read.
