Played this wonderful game for quite a while, 3 billion assets, all the ships, all the engineers, done the grind. Only needed Elite in exploration so I get my Connie and set off with 5 passengers to do my first long range mission. Previously couldn't face 250 jumps to get out here but I was enjoying it (strangely!) and already planning my next trip to Colonia to meet the new engineers, maybe get my name on some unexplored systems etc. Last stop Triple Density and plot the course for home. Oh look! there's a star in the system I'll get a jet cone boost from that and speed myself back to the bubble. Yes, it was a white dwarf and I got my well and truly fried. Lost 30kly data and 200 million credits for the missions, I can handle that, sort of! maybe I could rebuy next to Triple Density and drop in to Colonia but no, I have to rebuy back at Reorte. And there's the rub, the spell is broken, I just don't want to have to get back in the cockpit and spend hours to get back to where I was. But it's not sad and it's not a rant, it's a strange feeling like breaking up with a girlfriend, this delightful experience in my life has passed. I would have played on but the barrier to overcome the loss is too high, which should be a salutary message for Fdev and any games developer; don't let your players die feeling cheated. So thanks for a really wonderful time and I hope this game flourishes, but it's off to pastures new for me, I wish you all well.
