Thread: Important Community Update (01/03)

Guess they've clammed up a bit since August. Considering how significant this particular update is, and how many salient questions remain unanswered, I find it pretty disappointing.
    My guess is the answer to many of the questions is either something which could hurt the health of the CURRENT content OR that they simply do not have final details nailed down themselves yet.

    After some pretty awful missteps regarding features comeing to elite D i think FD are right to keep quiet untill they are at least fairly confident that what they announce will come.

    FD made a lot of sales off a lot of features which never came and I think this was not great. I am dissapointed with the pace of development too but personally i would rather be patient and get something we can consider nailed on, rather than more pie in the sky hopes and dreams which may never come

    (like the planetary tech update shown in 2017 for release in 3.4, or like landing on volcanic worlds in a later horizons DLC, or like using the SRV and SLF in a combined attack in multicrew, or like different SRVs with different characteristics coming in horizons or like........ well you catch my drift.

    better no info than false info imo.

    Go figure....

    and, there was an elite livestream yesterday? I missed that!
    It was quite fun, worth a watch.

    I wish i understood the logic behind offering people answers and then going silent. Did somebody speak of trolls?

    Yes, you're right. But if this is the case, they should let know us this, too.

    The naughty six must have quite a few alt accounts then.

    I must have read that wrong. Care to enlighten me what the correct interpretation of those words is?

    Will, I wouldn't have your job no matter what incentives were added!

    Thank you for coming back into the firing line once more...

    I think the responses here (and in another host of related threads) might demonstrate how passionate your player base are about this 'odd' game and its ongoing development, responses ranging from elation to desolation (or even outright contempt from a few) seemingly focussed around a 'lack' of meat on the bone you threw us

    If something more than hints were given it would likely bring the same result as the previous statement given...

    You'll never win as Dev's, but in truth I think you have more supporters than are obvious from a few comments.

    I've really appreciated the update Will, thank you.

    One of the things that's frustrated me in the past about FD comms is how quiet things can be, and I also know that you get a reaction to any update you do make, but please give us updates as often as you can. Cheers. o7

    I beg to differ, but these are our own opinions so I'm perfectly happy to agree we disagree and carry on.
    That said, I would like to put some health into perspective of 2020 major update: I don't know about you, but I have a job and I have more games to play than time to play them, so any moment I feel like I'm tired of Elite, there's more game to pick to fill the time in.
    And judging by the pace the time flows by in my mid-thirties, it's gonna be 2020 real quick.

    So just chill, Everyone. Life's too short to be constantly moaning about something - enjoy it instead.
    Peace.
