    Very nice. Now add loot chests! :P I'd like to do that for our group, but i'm afraid our CMDR Jankules would bankrupt us within the first week. :D

    Walking around in games is fine if walking around is the focus. Once you make flying around the main part, then walking is mainly a side issue, and sometimes even an annoyance if forced (eg: SC waking up in bed, walking to the bridge, etc). However, i still want it for ED, if only for the standing around looking at the landscape.... but i won't say that will make it a better game, just something i'd like to see.

    Indeed. When everyone was bashing on NMS, cbtrading remained positive. And eventually, a year or so after NMS released, it started slowly turning into a decent game by the look of things. Who knows, in a few years, SC might start shaping up to be a decent game as well, possibly even with a 1.0 release. Assuming SC ever makes release, assuming CIG can get the funds to finish it off. I'm still of a mind they will need half a billion to get the game to a state where they can say its approaching what CR wants... and i say approaching, because to get 100% what CR wants, i don't think the GDP of a large country would cover it.

    While i enjoy flying with a bounty, i find bounty hunters dropping in just as you have pulled a T9 full of LTDs out of SC a pain. The T9 might get away while you are dealing with the bounty hunter. In terms of my current bounty, i've now got Elite Anacondas coming after me.... i can't take one of those out and keep a T9 occupied at the same time. Hell, i can barely take out an Elite Anaoconda in my Combat Orca... my piracy Orca wouldn't stand a chance.

    Study mount is a good idea, but i don't think MCs are the weapon you should be using. I find cannons the weapon of choice for module sniping. Sturdy cannons with high yield effect are simply evil against modules.

    Urk, they shouldn't do that. Record it and submit it as a bug report.

    FD tried that with CQC/Arena - didn't work out too well.

    Cool, ill try and keep an eye on this thread then. A pirate squadron would be cool. I'd be tempted to get involved, but at least for the moment i'm far too busy with my own faction.

    Looks like OP is pretty clued up. But best do pirating in Anarchy systems to avoid getting bounties on your head and no cops giving your problems.

    Can someone point out on that thread that the long range Cobra Mk3 that 5000 backer got was just a regular CM3 with a specific loadout, something that someone could get the equivalent of in a few hours of gameplay?

    You're seeing things. FD covered three games, 2 released, 1 already in the works. CIG are covering one badly buggy tech demo and trying to squeeze more cash from backers.

    One thing that just struck me is about a difference of attitutes between SC fans and Ark fans. Anyone remember when the Ark devs announced Scorched Earth, which would be a fully playable DLC for a game that was still in beta? There was massive outrage. How can the devs release a DLC while the game isn't even released yet? And at such a high price ($60 IIRC? Maybe less). If you haven't played it, Scorched Earth is an awesome addition to Ark, providing a much more challenging game and a load of new creatures. In other words, it delivers. On the other hand, we have SC fans defending the sale of an $800 concept....

    Yup. They are not giving any time at all to the special screening of Sandi's film. What a let down! It surely would be the highlight of the whole evening!

    Seriously, how? How many people can seriously be upset about this? The mind boggles. How many people have that much money to throw after the promise of a ship to fly at some point? Even if they are certain it will come at some point, how many ships do these whales need? And non-whales shouldn't even care. Is this ship not going to be available with in game credits when launched? Because if its meant to be a "game changer" that's going to make quite a few people salty. All i see is hype and marketing being used to squeeze more funding from a community who over recent weeks have been less and less willing to part with their money.

    The problem is, people only see what they can see. And they only believe what they want to believe. In the case of Brett, as we mods have constant contact with him, we get to see how hard he works. The average forumite doesn't get to see this, and therefore some don't appreciate the effort he puts in. By extension, most of us don't get to see the effort the devs put in. We don't get to see their reactions when things like this happen. Like the OP's initial rant indicated, he really thought FD don't care about this. Of course, he has no idea what they really think, none of us do. However, i think its more likely that the devs responsible for this issue, upon reading about this (or being informed by Brett) did some serious facepalming over what they had done. But of course, they can't just run to the forums and openly say "we messed up". Communications have to be controlled. Start letting devs shoot off at the mouth on any topic, and the forum situation would be a nightmare. Things hinted at would become...

    You are entitled to your opinion of course, but working the BGS is a big part of the game for me and many others. So do not dismiss their enjoyment of this aspect of the game. I mean, as much as i think Powerplay is terrible, and really wish FD would do something to improve it, i don't tell those who enjoy Powerplay they are wasting their time.
