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
Cities might be an issue. Fauna and Flora? Check out Zoo Planet, which runs on the same engine for how far they are in development of that stuff. The rest is just good enough procedural generation (the thing NMS struggled with a bit, though they improved, and I doubt FDev cannot do better) and some aliens or few to keep you busy while more stuff gets added.

Unlike SC, I believe FDev will manage to actually procgen stuff, without having to place everything manually (though in some story cases they will do that, of course).
 
Hmm Citcon in the UK this year? So there are enough whales in the UK to support this? Could be a different vibe this year - UK audiences don't tend to get as excited as our US chums.
 
Sacrifices must be made to be in the same room with our savior Chris Roberts.
Me and the GF are on a trip back to the UK this November / December for a couple of things. We actually considered attending CitizenCon for the fun of it - but neither of us were able to obtain tickets. Oh well - no big loss really, but it would have certainly been an interesting experience.

The US sales technique of hyping also shouldn't work too well with Germans either, but plenty of german whales exist as well.

I was always told if you want to sell to the US you appeal to their emotions. If you want to sell to the Germans you show them technical specifications and parameters. If you want to sell to the English you get them drunk.

No, no, no. These days, if you want to sell the average German something, you only have to tell him (her, it...) that it's for the "fight against Nazis," and there'll be up there quicker than a rat up a drain pipe. (Forgive my being slightly bitter for being called the N-Word, only for being conservative, an avid supporter of Israel und Jews in general, and in support of freedom of speech...)

In other words, if CRobberts wishes to boost sales, he only needs to inform the German government that there will be banners and holograms against "Nazis" in the 'verse -- he'll get funding until it comes out of his ears afterwards...
 
Welp...I won't be going to Citcon..besides being closer to Norway than the UK here...I've got silage and harvesting to do... and winter feeding by the time that pile of nonsense comes around..
 
A few randoms on a quiet server made up a sort of HH crew last night. One Portugese, 2 UK, a Norwegian, an Orkney Islander and a Berliner...sounds like the beginning of a joke somehow...We did a few escorts for a guy in a Caterpillar...attacked a drug den...killed some pirates and some UEE navy ships at Kareah..then a bit of random flying around Hurston in the Valkyrie. A good night on the SC servers as things go and made some new friends for the contacts list. I was in the rear turret in case you were wondering why the pics are upside down, just had to get that screenie of the HH shadow over the drug den...
