In these two pictures, I wasn't sure whether I wanted the rocket exhaust to be part of the image, and in the break I took between the time the two images were taken, flicking between the two it can be noticed how the stars move, showing the rotation of the planetary body I was on. The fact that the orbital mechanics are not fudged and represent realistic and real time motion is still quite stunning, even 20+ years when it was first incorporated into Frontier: Elite II. Though give me Elite Dangerous graphics over those every day of the week.

Just a quick snapshot I took that in retrospect I really like how it came out:

It might be dumb luck or maybe Update 9 needed to percolate through the galaxy, but this is one of the three planetary settlements I recently found that ran at a steady 60 fps via Geforce Now, a service that often struggles with Odyssey. I hope this is a sign of good things to come soon.🤞

When I think about my first weeks with Elite back in 2015, I realize now that it was the realistic orbital mechanics that hooked me on the game. I remember docking at some station where a moon (IIRC) was in the sky to the right of my landing pad. I signed off for the night and came back the next day and discovered that the moon was now far off to the left and more distant. After playing countless space games with pretty but static "skyboxes," those orbital mechanics made for all the difference in the world. Sometimes it's the small things that can make or break a game. The extra immersive realism the orbital mechanics brought to Elite had thoroughly hooked me in a way that I never would have expected.

There's once in a lifetime alignments, and no system is ever the same twice. It's not hyperbole to call Elite Dangerous a galactic simulator. o7
 
Good morning CMDRs,

A quick engineering run to buff up my mining T10. The TFS Nostromo felt... a little fragile after the buff to the TFS Saul of Tarsus!

And yes, I have 2 T10s...

How to tell the difference?

If the exhaust is white, you're all right!

But if the exhaust is yellow... run. Run for your life!

Certain jobs require a, er, smaller craft.

Getting echoes of the ending of Alien with this one...

Nevertheless, do not underestimate the capabilities...

Or indeed the prettiness of such a craft!

See you in the black! o7

Good morning CMDRs,

After spending quite a bit of time in the Bubble, and some tank sunbathing, it's time to travel again!

Time to go into storage, my friend.

Heading out to the frontier...

Past one of the many white dwarfs inside the Bubble...

To an outpost on the edge of inhabited space...

On a moon with rings!!!

Last stop for civilisation. From here on out, there is only the black...

I want to thank CMDR Kaito=Otori, plank owner of the fleet carrier N- Nautilus, for helping me complete a mission for the Feds. I needed some advanced medicines and his carrier was the only place that stocked them in the system. It saved me a big headache trying to track down another source!
