Just get Rebel Galaxy Outlaw — it's a better entry in Wing Commander series than anything Chris et al. has ever produced.
Is it possible to use a HOTAS setup (including pedals) with Rebel Galaxy Outlaw? I googled, but did not find anything really answering my question... I don't like using the mouse for space games, and controllers even less so.
 
And it's far from the only one. Archeage had criminals go through player-jury trials that voted on guilt, deciding to sentence to prison or to release. For a high fidelity universe that models drink-mixing of all things, this is a sorely disappointing implementation of criminality. And considering the notoriously psychotic nature of mmo players, if there's one area where you could go wild on gameplay and know that it'll be used, it's ' law and order. Bounties, arrests, prisoner transfers, prison convoy escort/interception, the prison itself with its inside scene, its guards to corrupt, its old kingpins, its smuggling needs... Heck, you could even see it as an incentive for criminal type players: get arrested just so that you get to meet the boss inside and get jobs/instructions to carry after keeping quiet and being released early on good conduct. Basically all the stuff I have to make up in my head when hanging around prison colonies in ED.
STOP MAKING ME WANT TO PLAY ESCAPE FROM BUTCHER BAY AGAIN
 
I believe so.
Thank you, I'll be looking into it.

Not this month, though. My daughter (12) dropped her Samsung Galaxy A70, and the display shattered. Guess who's got to pick up the tab on that one . . . one doting, foolish father . . . (yeah, I know, but what can I do?)

@ Mugur

Took a turn for the worse, that one. A couple of nights ago, one Chris Roberts advised me that I should not even be thinking of engaging in criminal activities in my home system, or else . . .

My kids went through a phase of breaking their screens on their tablets through lack of care. My response was with each breakage i replaced the tablet with one half the price of the previous. I didn't bother replacing screens as that is pricy anyway.

So my son's first one was about 300 dollars. The next was 150ish. Then 75ish. Then 40sh.

Interestingly enough, they never broke any more after I said the next one would be replaced with a calculator.

Jenner has played it, maybe he has tried with HOTAS. The dev recommends gamepad tho.

Excellent advice, well worth keeping in mind . . . :)

Replacing the screen would cost 150 Euros -- the phone cost 350. (Man, I remember being a kid WITHOUT being such an electronic shackle. We survived without that stuff...).

Regarding SC, the biggest reason why I am POed about how they handle things is that I'd like it come out and be really, really GOOD . . . ED can use the competition.

That being said, I just sunk a couple of hours into ED VR. This game keeps sucking me back in, there's no substitute.

ED already has competition, and more is on the way. NMS, X4, Dual Universe, Space Engineers, etc. Each offers something different, doing some things better, some things worse, some things not at all.

If SC ever releases, in the best case its going to be just another space game that does some things (maybe?) well and some things bad, and some things not at all.

Most likely though, by the time SC is releasable in MVP form, ED will already be close to the end of its development cycle anyway. I suppose in that case, backers might start doing victory laps about how SC is still going strong when ED is dying :p

But i doubt that. Assuming FD keep working on the game, slow as updates are, SC seems to be a lot slower, and the gap will continue to widen. Space legs is the last big thing that SC has over ED in terms of gameplay, and if the leak is right, 2020 will see that gap closed. Atmospheric worlds? Yeah, not so much gameplay there, just graphics, which is nice, and hope FD have that on the roadmap for after 2020. At which point ED will have billions upon billions of atmospheric planets, while CIG are likely to be still slowly adding another system or two.

I think you would probably be disappointed using a HOTAS with the limited flight control.

I still have a little difficulty envisioning ED with cities and flora and forna. Maybe if they actually introduce the ice planets as they dangled the carrot for them to be, then it might be a little more believable that they could introduce other things than dust ball rocks

That thread is mostly about how evil epic is
