    Renewing. Anyone plays here? Feel free to add me, same nickname as here. Currently Generation 3 and loving it. I'm not great, but I don't totally suck either. The thing with TF2 (and 1) is that even when you lose, you still have immense satisfaction out of pure gameplay. It's a gem, the gameplay it self has something very special that even dying is somehow satisfying :D Love that game.

    Wise words, Shan. Indeed, that kind of label sti(n)cks for a long time.

    With all the praise for FDEV, it's also worth noting that it's really good to see a very positive reaction from the community to Frontier's actions - for a change. It's the best day I've had on the forums in a long time. Lots of positive vibes and good humour :) I also hope this will make FDEV start acting like they did today more often. They've shown that they don't tolerate behaviour that is destructive for both the game and the community. They also communicated their actions very clearly. It's most welcomed and they shouldn't be afraid to harshly punish such players. Well done FDEV and well done Community!

    Postanowiłem sprawić komuś prezent, ogłaszam więc konkurs :) Wbrew wszelkim pozorom, zarówno wizualnym jak i behawioralnym, na ogół jestem miłym facetem ;) i dlatego postanowiłem sprezentować komuś Elite: Dagerous CMDR DeLuxe Edition. Obecnie na ED jest zniżka w sklepie FDEV, więc pomyślałem, że fajnie będzie sprawić komuś taki prezent. Aby wziąć udział w konkursie wystarczy opisać w tym wątku na otwartym forum TWH co sprawia, że chcecie grać (lub gracie, jeśli już posiadacie grę) w Elite Dangerous. Jury w składzie mojej osoby :P wybierze najlepszy tekst i ta osoba dostanie nagrodę - koszt pokrywam z własnej kieszeni :) Z nagrodą możecie zrobić, co chcecie - podarować komuś lub zatrzymać dla siebie - wybór jest Wasz. Zapraszam do wzięcia udziału!

    Yeah, I noticed that .. (OP's pic) is a Tourism commodity market. I love the idea of flogging stuff to sunburned holiday makers for a good price, I've been to Istanbul .. and Moissanite, Taaffeite and Jadeite, they're all semi precious stones. Moissanite, is even a fake .. or at least bargain basement holiday resort diamond, ha! An educational one on me +1 reps all around

    One thing is certain - it's one of the best days on the forums since the release. I'm enjoying the silence from certain individuals, enjoying it a lot! :D :D :D

    Ah .. Jadeite (quite valuable! found surface scavenging, ideally in lawless systems) .. You'll find it ready mined in cannisters at some POI sites on surfaces. Not sure if it ever turns up if you destroy mining installations but there are a couple of minerals in the same category in OP screenshot. Possibly hints at something for the future game. At the moment not possible to mine the surface yourself afaik though if people will leave it lying around and if I just happen to be passing by in SRV, obviously wouldn't mind if I do! You can sell it in commodity market (depending exactly where you got it) but don't think you can buy it anywhere.

    Yes, that would be much appreciated, because I personally don't believe you and I honestly think you're just upset to lost all or most of your modules (as that seems to be the case, going by what you've said in that quoted discord chat - and my assumption is based purely on your words).

    Did you consider the fact that perhaps the other ones are more difficult to track down or fix?

    Ah, sorry buddy. I misunderstood your post - thought you're complaining about that! D

    The exploit was NOT god rolls, aka the result. The exploit was using G1 materials for G5 modifications. And you had to do a series of specific actions to achieve that, so it must have been deliberate. If you have never used the exploit and got god-rolls from legitimate rolls - you're safe. If you have used the exploit on a given module type, ALL modifications from ALL modules of that type you own were removed. So, case #1: You have FSD upgraded on 4 ships. You ran out of G5 materials to upgrade the last ship and you have used the exploit to use G1 materials to get G5 upgrade. ALL your FSD upgrades are removed.

    I was also considering 7700K, but that would mean a new mobo and new RAM. Which I could probably afford if my secondary monitor didn't break a few days ago... :(

    Thanks for the report. My 4790K is due to arrive tomrrow and - accidentally - I have a day off, booked it ages ago (preparation for Lavecon :) ). I'll report if there is any improvement for 4590 > 4790K.

    While you're right, there's absolutely NO 'wrong mode' .. it's wallopin' good fun to fly in and out again, sightseeing right under their noses, in a speedy stealth build. (Did someone say Eagle? Costs near nothing if the worst actually does happen but you do know for a fact, if you've no cargo, no NPC will ever touch you).

    Likewise. I don't have ridiculous hours to play, fly mid-range ships, mouse keyboard on a below spec laptop but play open anyway, including CG's, visits to engineers, the lot. Find it adds that unknown factor, making Elite: Extra Dangerous. Don't think I've ever had an issue not able to escape from but even if I did .. stuff happens and I could introduce you to the elite NPC FdL who just tried to mess up my Python's day. In answer to the OP then .. hope so. Little by little the galaxy is 'maturing'. So come on in, the water's lovely, and the adrenalin too.

    Thanks for the explanation, it makes sense now :) I agree the RNG factor is a bit excessive in some parts of the game - hopefully we'll see balance passes and improvements in this area as part of post 2/4 fixes. But that's going into offtopic for this thread now.

    Sorry if I have misinterpreted this statement made by you: Care to elaborate on that? It's just that to me it looks like you're saying (that's my interpretation): "I don't like the RNG associated with Engineers, so it's OK to use the exploit." Unless you mean "If not for the RNG, people wouldn't use the exploit.", which means you're blaming the developers for the fact that some people cheat in the game. I apologise if that's not what you meant, but that's how I read your post. Feel free to explain/correct me.

    So...cheating is justified and OK, because the player cheater (let's not mix those two) has a subjective opinion on the game mechanics (he dislikes it)?

    The exploit was the possibility to use Grade 1 materials to roll Grade 5 Engineer upgrades on modules. I don't know how it actually worked though, as I'm not interested in using that kind of stuff :P

    Maybe fixing the other ones takes more than this one? I find it hard to believe fDEV would deliberately left a known exploit in game.

    Hi fella, you wanted a reminder to share your market data dump on Dropbox

    Thanks again,

  9. Missed your post as I was away from Ed and the forums for a few days. Thanks for your kind words. Good to see that I'm not the only one with 'frustation'. Thanks for your trade routes, I will try them, if/when I have the money for them as they are quite expensive iirc. As I said in the OP or later on I'm using slopey's trade tool atm but even that doesn't get me going. Luckily next week on the 24th PB2 will be released with a 3 systems. I guess the market will flatten quit quickly again after that so I MUST play it directly on that evening.

    I will start this evening again if I can manage it. I will keep you informed. Thanks for the offer of flying with me in the future. Would be nice. But for that to happen 'communication' must be in the game first. I think comm. will change ED quit a bit.

    Hi Wolverine,
    I just wanted to say thanks for posting your 'frustration' message on the forums. Your comments and the following replies have helped me a lot to stay calm and think clearly. I'm also PB-frustrated as an 80's speccy Elite player :-)
    I've been grinding on the Chango-Dahan route, making a relatively safe 343 profit per unit for trading Tantalum from Dahan to Chango and then with Domestic Appliances from Chango to Dahan for 79 unit profit. Not great, but good for docking training!
    Please let me know if you have any success gaining monies from the comments in that forum thread or elsewhere. I'd be very happy to fly with you into a scuffle in the future - but need to get a stick and brush up on my dogfighting skills first!

    Trader Ted (Ed.)
