Sure would be nice if FDev would clarify this kind of thing, wouldn't it?
"You can see the lack of sufficient strength behind his more direct parries. Shame they didn't make this more believably realistic, as it distracts from the significance of the scene. Great movie though on principle and execution in general either way though."Sure would be nice if FDev would clarify this kind of thing, wouldn't it?
Even if legendary, I am really not sure where the idea of it being strictly finite came from. Especially in the eventual scenario that the game continues offering reasonable profits.Well there was the legendary 10 years plan, which if you run from 2012 means there's only a few years left now.
That's pointless. There is a context for using the term investment here, and buying a video game (including kickstarting one) is not a financial investment. As stated by others, investing in FDEV is.It's more than a financial term, though that is the most common context in recent years:
noun: investment; plural noun: investments
the action or process of investing money for profit.
"a debate over private investment in road-building"
synonyms: investing, speculation; More
expenditure, outlay, funding, backing, financing, underwriting;
"you can lose money pretty fast by bad investment"
stake, share, portion, interest, money/capital invested;
"an investment of £305,000"
- a thing that is worth buying because it may be profitable or useful in the future.
"freezers really are a good investment for the elderly"
synonyms: venture, speculation, risk, gamble; More
asset, buy, acquisition, holding, possession;
"I'm satisfied that it's a good investment"
- an act of devoting time, effort, or energy to a particular undertaking with the expectation of a worthwhile result.
"the time spent in attending the seminar is an investment in our professional futures"
synonyms: sacrifice, surrender, foregoing, loss, relinquishment, forfeiture
"a substantial investment of time and energy"
the surrounding of a place by a hostile force in order to besiege or blockade it.
Maybe it’s happened and that’s what the god mode cheat/hack thread is actually about ;-)They could just ask for their "God-like powers" which actually were promised...
Investment in Mrs Rob At Work £250,000 - £500,000Well, in terms of money vs time investment ;-
DDF purchase : £300. (although I haven't included the various paint jobs, ship kits, Elite Books I've got over the year from the store.)
Number of Hours played : 2150.
Cost per Hour (So Far) : £0.14 (rounded) per hour.
Even through I'm disappointed with the lack of promised features that came with the DDF. It's not bad value for money when compared to say what I've spent on SWTOR or the Mass Effect Series.
Mass Effect 1, 2, 3 (Plus their DLC): £80
Number of Hours Played : 95
Cost per Hour (So Far) : £0.84 (rounded) per hour.
SWTOR : Purchase and 2 Years Subscription : £ 250
Number of Hours played : 400 hours
Cost per Hour : £0.625
Watching Avengers: Endgame £12.00
Number of Hours : 3 (ish)
Cost per hour : £4.00
Ha!Maybe it’s happened and that’s what the god mode cheat/hack thread is actually about ;-)
I’m an LEPer since premium beta and although slightly miffed that the game didn’t really pan out as I’d hoped, or the originally implied rate of updates wasn’t actually what happened.. I feel I’d be rather more peeved if I’d bought the LEP with Horizons as many did.
IMHO they should have offered refunds to that group along with the snow flake cosmetics last xmas.
That's a very big IF... looking at past experiences, I am not holding my breath."if"...
Problem is with FD being radio silent there is still hope for some........ TBH i would rather FD did a video or a long post regarding the road so far, about lessons learned from making a game and also would go through the main missing or hugely cut down features talked about in the DDF and the dev diaries and be honest about whether they are still on the list or are really not either feasable or the direction the devs want to take the game in.Yeah, but there is such a thing as beating a dead horse.
A retrospective would be nice. Anything that looks to the future though... well, you know the community. Anything said as "we would like" would be taken as an absoloute promise.Problem is with FD being radio silent there is still hope for some........

personally until they do that i shall continue to hope they will appear, as well as be dissapointed when they dont.
honestly people keep taking about features such as space legs and atmospheric landings and all sorts of cool, but really hard to do (well) features... i would just be happy with a ships crew with fairly basic skills sets for very minor passive bonuses as well as the ability to hire npc wingmates and have some escort missions....
