    I've long advocated for a rework of superpower leveling and the military career path. Just let people keep their existing rank and ships and rework the system. Seems fair to me.

    In the base if you try to log off to the main menu the game will tell you it's a dangerous area and that you'll me moved 3km out if you sign off. Do that, and when you come back in you'll be just at the edge of the "settlement" area (the base in this case) where you can recall your ship safely. :)

    It's awesome to have a whole new group of Commanders here in the forum and game! I'm loving all the fiest imprrssion threads and such from people kust discovering Elite Dangerous, or just now playing.

    It's quite improved, yes. Kudos to FD for fixing it up.

    I really enjoyed shooting those eggs. And blowing up whatever else I could around the Thargoid base. For the glory of the Empire, of course. :)

    Yeah, it's cool that people figured that out originally. As a one-off thing I applaud it too. Or as an Easter-egg, I applaud it. If, however, it's required to advance the storyline for everyone and it's something that FD are using again and again, then I would hope they'd expend some dev effort to make this stuff accessible to the 99%. Otherwise they're spending time and effort coding in puzzles that only a small fraction will have the pleasure of solving themselves. It's totally FD's prerogative to do so, but I don't agree with it. :)

    And there it is, the confirmation that we'll fight against them. There goes any enthusiasm into the story and mystery if it is all going to end in yet another instance of the "stop the evil invading aliens" trope...

    It would be a nice gesture, but imho that's a band-aid on a larger problem. That does nothing to help those without said tools be an active part in the entire mystery chain. They would be still be second-class researchers, feeding on the crumbs that fall from the table of commanders with access to third party tools. I get the teamwork argument, though, I really do. It's great to encourage people to get together and use their individual skills and deduction ability to figure this out. However, that's not what we have at the moment imho. We're not talking about skills and deduction, but access to tools.

    I do really enjoy it when I take part in multi-crew activity, but I agree FD really need to expand upon it for it to be viable long-term. It's disappointing that the only real roles so far are limited to shooting things, and even that is limited to just CZs and HasRez sites. It needs way more variety. ED is all about variety in activity. David B has even said before he's surprised that people tend to fall into doing the same activity over and over again. Well.... multi-crew is pretty much the same activity over and over and over and over and over. :) Shooting NPCs is *fun* mind you, but there needs to be more flesh on those bones.

    I worry about this as well. Players shouldn't have to resort to using all these third party tools just to play the game, but it appears that FD have embraced that reality. Heck, I'm a mod and have been here since Kickstarter and even I have to experience most of the alien mystery stuff through Obsidian Ant's videos and the forum. It's all rather removed from the actual in-game experience. The point about players on other platforms being even more at a disadvantage here is very appropriate, too. Kudos to the Canonn and all who figure this stuff out, though. I don't have the time or patience or tools for it. :)
