Roadmap leaked??

Base building and space legs are two things I dgaf about though space legs would be kind of okay for walking around my ship I guess but I don't really care much about it. What I would prefer is they update the game world to make it more lifelike, more immersive. Give NPC's some personality/life. The elite galaxy is barren and I don't mean theres a lack of vegetation and rivers. Other CMDR's are no replacement for well made NPC's....
 
Point being that's an entire year without any meaningful upgrades (specifically, PP). I've had enough of those years already.
The last patch was OK for beginners, and the couple of QoL improvements for the rest of us were OK.

Addressing things like PP, Frontier need another Beyond to flesh out existing game play. I can't see PP being improved before 2020 - which is unfortunate because there's a lot of potential there... it's another rather flat feature that is largely meaningless. No Meat.
 
This community: FD must do space legs and base building.

Also this community: If FD do space legs and base builditing i'll quit!

The potiential of space legs to bring in a lot of new casuals will offset the very few who will quit lol. I also doubt most of them will actually do what they say.
 
I'm neutral about legs and bases, as long as they fill in the rest of the game as well and test.

The ultimate would be having combined arms missions like Battlezone: air, tank SRV, on foot raids for various reasons (turf war, assassinate), peaceful scavenger missions, not so peaceful scavs etc. Walking distances in ED are shall we say.....really big, that means thats a lot of things that can become boring if done wrong or not included at all.

Been playing some Escape from Tarkov, and sometimes I imagine that type of FPS style in Elite. Its some of the best gunplay I have ever experienced. Hell Fdev could even RNG the loot like they do too for farming.


It could be pretty legit gun mechanics/engineering those pieces of guns. Hope we get some variety and not something like a multitool.

The other outcome might be something like Mass Effect 1 Mako base raids. This was OK, but quite cookie cutter. In ME 1 that was saved by the overarching narrative, something that ED lacks which would concern me. the proc gen missions are still too short and lack context.
 
Probably. I'd guess a lot of people who declared they would quit due to ship transfer times never actually quit and many now use the feature.
Who’s quitting because of space legs?!?!? Space legs ho!!!!!!

How could finally providing the wish that everyone has in their second or third play session be bad?

Well, some people think they can dictate what Fdev must do or else, so they whinge about it. Problem is Fdev have always stated, they want to make a space game that they want to play, and judging by their development dairies most of the Devs are excited for space legs. Feedback is good of course, but they will not change their original game vision over a few salty people. Besides I think people are over reacting, I have a feeling we will see legs & some atmos in the 2020 update.
