    No resource extraction sites outside bubble. It's LAWLESS space which means no consequences for shooting any innocent NPC miner and taking his cargo but no bounty on pirates either, unless you KWS scan them first. You will usually see a wing of pirates, attracted by your wake drop when you first arrive. If you've no cargo 99% sure they won't attack you (not interested in limpets). After a fly past they will high wake and you won't see any more but they do sometimes fly back before they high wake out, so be aware if you started mining. Risk of engaging them of course, is you'll get no form of security help no matter what and if your canopy busts it's a brown trouser RTB in a hurry. I always mine on the bubble edge, not TOO far from a market I suggest, a couple of jumps is OK but much more than that and it can get a little tedious returning home and going back out after a while. Interestingly .. one system I mined at had a population of zero when I first arrived, not classified as having any type of...

    I think their intention is not to say no, we won't do it. I guess constantly demanding we setup FD recent efforts to fail and that's why they feel they have to double down on it. He said that it is better to thing as way off because it is way off and for FD their current work is more important.

    People jump to conclusions all the time. People still don't know what term 'units' mean, despite it being clarified that it is ED base game and Horizons combined copies. Also add justified questions about future of ED and slow release cycle of Horizons - so scepticism is understandable. However they go with most extreme scenario, ignoring more trivial ones. But that's internet for you.

    Company current view on space legs has been known for a year now. Dale just repeated what they have said. No, it does not say never. No, it does not say when. Also other game is delayed because of incompetence of it's developers.

    Truth to be told, EVE has never been designed from first person perspective, so it is no surprise they struggled to come up with gameplay for that. That's not exactly problem ED have. But yeah, as example of 'just release something' is right on target. Space legs won't work with 'just release something'. And other scenario is to do awfully lot of work.

    Like those massive space battles on EVE which takes like 2 minutes for 1 second to last? No thanks. People pushing for client/server arch simply does not see full picture. 1) client/server arch would slow down ship speeds a lot. It wouldn't increase how many ships you can see at once, not really. Also it would mean severs would be split off and for one shard you would get hundreds of ones. Usual MMO issue when you are on one server and friend is another one. ED at least have theoretical mechanisms - recently working more reliably - to meet someone you want; 2) costs for server renting are HUGE. Basically that would mean most of MT money going for server renting and no to development. Selling copies is just not good enough for games like ED; 3) In the end, peer to peer is problematic mostly because of infrastructure issues in (ironically) old West, like UK or US. In countries where infrastructure is relatively new there's no problem with games like ED. I also expect peer to peer improve with time,...

    So this should give you feel that FD *wants* to add them and plan game accordingly. They just don't know when and how. That's called 'future proofing'. They just don't know in full detail how that future will look like.

    This. If 3.0 would be real, allowing exploring it would just make fans run wild with fantasies and would support SC cause big time. I don't buy 'quality' claim, not anymore. After 5 years you want to show SOMETHING to go on. This is nothing compared to what even basic premise, initial KS premise promised.

    So in nutshell - big CryEngine level, very rudimentary mechanics, some good looking assets, nothing that resembles game loop, nothing that resembles MMO. At this point good looks really won't help CIG. If ED would offer space legs just this hour, CIG would be done for. But as FD have admitted they don't have immediate plans to do so, so CIG might be safe for some time (ironically).

    Ok, so we have to wait for the full clip to be available for later view I presume. Although I would imagine something as serious as a delay to December would have already been commented on Spectrum or Reddit and I cant see it.

    Avatars does not imply space legs. They might makes us dream about space legs, but it is not unwritten promise about doing them.

    I never seen it as pledge. But ok, I understand your point there. But Dale did not say anything that wasn't said for at least a year. Granted, about year ago I thought 3.0 will be about space legs and yes, I was disappointed when FD decided they finally need to say something about it and cooled our expectations considerably. And although I don't like to hear those statements, doesn't make them less repeating same statements as before. Also Dale is right on many points - lot of space legs games have failed around us, it is really not that desired feature anymore, there are much more important things to improve, it is very expensive and huge work, and it needs solid plan and reasoning to be done. I still want space legs. But he is right...FD despite recent success does not have pile of money and idle devs to take that risk right now. Looking at whole thing my only problem (and it is big one) is that FD haven't said anything about the future of game for very long time. I really hope Frontier Expo...

    If we would assume they have some prototyping done on atmospheric planets, then I suspect they most likely have working render versions of primitive ones in-house at this point. Will they ship with next expansion reminds to be seen (I expect they will, gas giants are hinted by David a lot), but that most likely is 2018 release.

    No need for conspiracies, CIG has sunk their own credit of trust long time ago. Also nice to see fresh faces arrive on this thread just for a time of Gamescom. No suspicious at all ;)

    Thanks for writing the Pilot's Guide. It's very comprehensive. I'm going through it now, and have picked up a few things I wasn't aware of.

    P.S. You might want to change all the occurrences of 'binded' to 'bound'.
