    Quick question ... These hearing dogs... erm are you sure they are for the Death People? I'm imagining some sort of cult now..
    I just read that and I'm wondering too

    Ah, so we're getting proper dark sides back for landfall planets? Sweet!

    Finally, the long awaited 2.3 is here!

    Now back to the doom and gloom 2.4 predictions: dark times are going to be the end for Elite Dangerous - there I said it first!

    Elite: Dangerous - mile wide, player deep.

    If you write code at all , you will have come across situations where you know that the problem exists, but have no idea how to resolve without making things worse.
    Even if you do know what's causing it, you can't resolve it. For minor issues (eg paint fix not always going to 100% ... actually I think they have made this work in Beta 2.3)) it is not worth breaking the main functionality.
    So give them a break.

    It would be nice if the issues can be resolved, but hopefully they at least fix the game breakers.

    ...

    As to people saying "what's in 2.4?" .... blooming heck! let the dust settle first.

    ...

    Main new features are the Commander creator "Holome". This is really simple to use and you can quickly put together you're own character. It's a kind of identi-kit system and works very well. Doesn't add to gameplay at all, but it's very pretty.

    The Camera suite changes are very extensive and now quite complicated to use. But you can see inside your cockpit with all those nice avatars you and your crewmates have created. A good tool for the YouTube people. but I think not as intuitive as the old simple camera.

    MultiCrew.

    This is a potentially nice feature. You have up to 3 people in your ship. The 'virtual' presence means you can get some fighting action by joining a ship even if you are 'really' 20.00LY away. The ability to fly the ship fighter and use the turret weapons in a controlled manner will make multicrew ships more powerful than a single lone pilot version.
    There are issues if your crewmates are trigger happy as you'll get "Wanted" status quite a bit.

    And beware of Back-seat drivers ... nothing more unnerving than trying to land your ship with two people sitting there saying "I can do better"

    Only think I dislike about multicrew mechanic, is the 3rd person view for the Gunner role. I think this should be a view from the turret weapons. All other ED viewpoints have been from a 1st person perspective. But it does allow Gunner to be very quickly able to assess potential targets.
    If you fly in a wing already and have voice communications active, then multicrew might suit your gameplay very well indeed.

    I think all these changes are mostly to add mechanics for other features later, which I also feel are unlikely to see the light in the 2.x releases.

    Could you be more specific on what a "sometime next week" is please?

    I want to brace myself for the inevitable torrent of whinging, whining and trolling that will occur post the release.

    I just want 2.3 without the toxic extras.

    This is not news, but some kind of shame..
    The game is more than 2 years old, and in the news babbling about innovations as about some kind of achievement .. and these ugly kamo. Hrrrrr
    Where is the news about E:D?

  14. #29
    Perhaps some nice outfits for our pilots like the contender one or the Explorer suit Hope for a paintjob for the Dolphin (like the ones made for the Beluga)
