    I'm quite happy to avoid all Thargoid contact. I'm not a fighter, I've got the reflexes of a tree. I remember the Thargoids from my Speccy as being an alien I could NEVER win against. I don't need those odds back. It would ruin the game for me if I could just randomly get blown up at any time :(

    Nope, two reasons... One, my Commander is in Colonia. Two, on the 29th I'll be checking into Claridge's for the weekend :) http://www.claridges.co.uk/ Have fun though

    Exactamondo... as the Pope might say. For me it's something that, unless implemented in a very clever way, I'd have a very short attention span for. - - - Updated - - - Hmm, I think that's stretching the definition quite some way. I don't shoot limpets, I launch them, and I don't shoot scanners, I activate them. In fact I do no "shooting off" at all... I love Elite very much, but there's a limit :P

    It's only a first person shooter if you shoot stuff.

    I'd appreciate your thoughts on this, but please be polite to people. I saw a thread here today from somebody who said he'd recently bought a copy of Star Citizen and was considering jumping ship (no pun intended!) It got me thinking about space legs and why I really don't care about them. If you look at what Elite Dangerous (and especially the original Elite) is, it's an exploration, and space trading game. If you look at Star Citizen (please don't move this thread, there's a point to this) then that's primarily a combat and first person shooter game. I don't care about combat in Elite and I never go anywhere near first person shooters. I'm curious if you want space legs, but if you're not a FPS fan, as I can't think of many other reasons to have it in Elite, short of moving with the times, expanding the potential sales reach of the game, etc... In No Man's Sky, for which there could never be an FPS feature, as it's not designed that way, being able to walk around is engineered so that it...

    Oh, sooo much... Additional money earned for planets containing some form of life (amoebas upwards) Wrecked ships with salvageable materials / components / cargo New types of astronomical phenomena such as comets and dust clouds New materials discovered that are only available in certain regions The occasional mystery (alien?) encounter The discovery of abandoned generation ships / megaships perhaps with mysterious messages New exploration megaships sent throughout the galaxy that can be used for repair and restock, and as staging points for deep exploration missions

    Such an Engineer should have blueprints that don't appear in the bubble for another six months :)

    There's plenty of stuff going on at Colonia at the moment, but nothing that can't also be found in the bubble. Colonia really needs to be expanded, and soon, and I'd be interested in what you think, but this is my list... An Asteroid Base, a dockable Megaship and different outpost types when the current expansion CG ends A narrative storyline of its own, such as... A huge exploration, megaship or colony ship to be discovered adrift Alien artefacts to be discovered on planets, or alien ships discovered adrift, or a mystery ship graveyard These tied to a region of space nearby (I think there's a locked one) where we can find alien activity

    2 / 3 #Meh There's much more needed before we get his, such as finishing the features that are already in the game first! See my footer for a link to my own feature requests list.

  6. Hi Tristan,

    There's a donate button on the "About" page in the BPC. All donations are gratefully received, and are donated to MND Scotland.

    Hi Slopey. I love your BPC, although I did feel a bit dirty using it to begin with instead of pens and paper. C'est la vie! Now, though, I'd like to give you a small donation to thank you for your time. I can't find any donate buttons, and thought you might be able to point me in the right direction or send me your PayPal email address. Ta.

    Sloapy.. So your Find Elite question at the beginning of launch if it's not detected. Takes a long time. You know that. However.. In an effort to speed it to near instanteous. Why not run a quick If. Elite Dangerous Executeable is Running. What is its file path.. Search there first? This seems like a very easy solution. Also adding things like search same drive sloapys is downloaded to first, or search for words like games, and elite first.. not sure how you are searching.. but most of the time, people have elite running already...

    Hello! I've found an erroneous entry in the Ngaliba system; the Nordenskiold Landing station is listed twice. The wrong one has been spelt with an "o" at the end instead of a "d".
    Cheers for a brilliant tool!
