Couldn't have said it better, myself, Slange. Will miss running into you in the game and community, but Elite is definitely done. o7 for the last time, CMDR.Not anymore.
During my first 3000 hours I was the whitest of knights.
Then I became more aware of bugs.
Bugs that were never fixed.
Radio silence from Fdev about bugs.
currently tens of thousands of bugs on the issue tracker
Then Frontier turning to publishing and new IP.
It's Frontier's right to change focus. And mine to realize what Frontier has become.
Sean Murray's game might not be a Commander's cup of tea. BUT HE OBVIOUSLY LOVES HIS GAME.
There is a dialectic between game creators and those who choose to live in the game creators' worlds. Creators delight in making stuff and Users love exploring and manipulating them. Ideally it's a two way street.
There is no dialectic between Frontier and the Commander. Commanders get what they get, bugs and all. Frontier determines which bugs get fixed. Frontier determines when and if bugs get fixed. There is never an apology for having knowingly wasted our time.
Community Managers are used as underpaid Meat Shields in order to sustain the illusion that Frontier Management is listening. Anyone else notice the Community Manager turnover rate? I miss Ed!!!!
So no, I am not conditioned.
I wish Frontier well on it's way to being a corporate giant. I had a lot of fun playing Elite Dangerous and surely got my money's worth.
But alas, parting is inevitable.
*sold. The game FDev sold. Because they have not completed making it, clearly, since they skipped the step where they ship it in a functional state.That sounds like a good game. A great game. You should make it.
Meanwhile, we'll play the game FDev made.
This bug is ancient, too, just like your clipping through ground bug. FDev quality!Aaaand... I've had the 6th one.
I gave up after the error message and clicked the exit button, only to see this:
Had to use the task mgr to kill the process.
Strange, I was under the impression that a working "exit" procedure should be a standard function of every computer program, but what do I know.
