    And from both you and I'm thinking: it is not true you're safe if you are not pledged.

    As I said elsewhere: C&P is now big oily spaghetti mess
    What exactly you don't understand there? PF bounty makes exception if you do a a) bounty hunting and commander in question has legit local bounty on his head and b) do powerplay business with other power pledged commander in either your or his/hers power system.

    It is quite clear for all intents and purposes.

    Not a long changelog. Hopefully it means release date is very close

    If being not pledged make you safe as a victim (i.e. killer gets no exception), thats (for me) contradiction to the victim being "advertised" to the killer as 'LAWLESS' (read: you can kill him). It's kind of contradictory.

    I've had my Corvette for a month now and it's time to give it the name it deserves.

    No fix needed, It's how it is.

    Thanks for all the hard work FD. Really, I appreciate it because you guys are kicking butt and doing something I love but cannot do.

    I'm very pleased with the overall direction of the game and can't wait for the Expo news, which I think will make me even happier.

    The salt is I wish FD would trust and interact with the player base a bit more like the pre-V1.0 days with the DDF, regular sneak peeks and etc. That is where it seems most want to see the game head (obv I do not represent everyone or even 'most' but I consider it a fair reading of threads over the last 2 years). Post Kickstarter hasn't been nearly as good as the Kickstarter period and the headline features have a mixed reception (to say the least). The best bits seem to be when Sandro or another team member makes a forum post or hops in the forums for some Q&A on a feature- but this seems to have been mostly random over the last year and not as formalized as the DDF, and so to me not as effective (but I'm outside looking in, of course).

    I'll test the latest Beta after work as I don't have the kids tonight. I hope the SRV volume levels are fixed (looking forward to a total overhaul/replacement of that non-fun mechanic in the next year). Also hope the over-powered cascade weapons fixed so NPC engineered ships don't still essentially incapacitate me with 1 or 2 shots only- that really makes combat not fun.

    Cheers!

    Can you please clarify this? Can commanders from any Imperial power kill commanders from any Federal power in any system exploited/controlled by said powers? If not, I am worried that this change will create significant issues for intra-superpower cooperation.

    Hello Commanders!

    This, I believe. All the following conditions must be true:

    1. The victim is pledged to a power
    2. The aggressor is pledged to a power
    3. The location of the crime is in a system controlled/exploited/expanding by a power that the victim or aggressor is linked to

    Before the exclusion can trigger.

    Thanks
    I too would like to know this. We don't need details if it's spoilery, but a simple "there's more we aren't ready to reveal" or a "this is all there is for 2.4" would be appreciated.

    Excellent thank you for the clarification.

    Afaik someone who is not pledged to other power won't get 'lawless' tag.

    Would be fine, too. So we could fit 2 co-pilots in there
