    As usual, I guess I shall have to wait and see in the beet-ahh !
    I find pretty cool that both cases will work and that MC finally gets navigator role.

    Possible and would certainly negate the issue.. I wouldn't expect that to happen till new paid for point release tho'. But at this point anything is possible I guess.

    Exactly which is why I think it was a good question.

    Which raises another question.. iirc it was stated at an earlier reveal that the DDS would keep it's original functionality and you wouldn't necessarily need to use probes ..
    So, if that is the case, are explorers able to "map" the planet by approaching in supercruise and simply scanning the old way?

    If the probes are fired from a secondary view, then yes, I can see a MC benefit/role. BUT, if they're fired from the cockpit view, then surely only the pilot can use them?

    Or have some screenshots implied this behaviour?

    I heart it being suggested that you will just have to fly over it in orbit to do that.

    Proposal suggests you will be able to fire it in MC. I doubt it means only pilot can do it.

    How can non-Horizons owners get G1 matts in the middle of space? What am I overlooking here?

    Ok...

    Then hopefully, like the DS view, multiple crew will all be able to use the feature at once too!

    That is what I thought I heard. It would be great to have choices.

    The "aim and fire" probe technique is probably being developed to give MC something to do (and to earn credits) while sitting in the explorer's ship !

    You can get some G1 matts from mining with a mining laser.

    I think some is an underestimate

So....Always the same doom and gloom that serves nothing than bringing so much more negativity. It helps nothing in the end.
    I used Holo me for 5 minutes when I put my commander together and have never touched it since.

    This is why the 'working hard' epithet doesn't really wash. Is that hard work any good and also directed in the right direction?

    Watch their faces as the question comes up... you'll have to find the timestamp, as I'm tired from jumping my fleet to Colonia tonight.

    Edit: Found *that* at 39:32

    Poor Adam. A bad cold, Ed machine-gunning beside him, and awkward questions about if the Sidewinder comes with a discovery scanner...or what kind it is.

    Edit: Found *that* at 22:22



    I agree. To the rebuy screen.
    39:10 What kind of answer is that? Just say you don't know.

    To be fair, lots of people, including me, complained about seeing an empty seat all the time so I was happy enough to see it filled. Next step is the rest of the empty seats

    That was a bit embarrassing wasn't it, like it hadn't come up between the Devs at all until a viewer asked there and then.

    They ever reveal any of the new mining stuff?
