fao Michael, is the local faction bounty going to be fixed soon, lots of money sitting there
Please, please, *please* help me, developers. I am near my wits end because of this stupid validation error I keep having with data.ovx!!!! Over 24 hours, & I am no closer to upgrading my game. In desperation, I've deleted *all* my files & am starting from scratch......but I fear that won't help either!!!!!
But, the 2.5% discount isn't for all backers, it's for those that backed at the £150 "Founder" level and above, of which there's not so many. In lore terms they are "founding members of the Elite" and therefor are apparently loved throughout the known universe, getting plied with shiny decals, free cocktails in bars and discounts in the outfitting shop.
If you were happy to shell out £150 before the game was even out, then yes, you've missed out. But personally I don't see it as a huge problem, giving a perk to people who supported the game with cold hard cash based on faith it'd get built along.
Yay, that *finally* seems to have worked, now just the wait for the game to install. Quick question, though. As I downloaded everything from scratch, does this mean that I lose all the progress I've made in the last 2 months?!?! I sure hope not. I had assumed all the vital data was stored at your servers.....hope I was correct in that assumption!
Well said! Too many people concern themselves about what others have than what they have, its a problem in our socety in general. Sure moan about bugs but stop bleating about rewards etc for backers, all of us could have joined at backer stage ages ago but for whatever reason we decided not to. If FDEV promised backers bonuses and they are honouring this then that is great!I disagree. I only backed at premium beta (£100) which is a lot more cash wise than many KS people paid and got the sol permit and 96.something insurance. Im more than happy with the way things are. If it wasnt for the kickstarting community we wouldnt even have a game to play. People should be more concerned about making their own enjoyment in the game than worrying about others. Everyone, myself included had a chance to back early. I didnt hear about the project till Alpha but i couldnt afford £200 at the time to back.
As an 80's Elite player im very happy this game got the backing it needed.

You're still posting a lot for someone who's had enough and has rage-quit. Every game has its problems, how many of the games you play are based on a brand new from the ground up engine? I'd bet not many. So have fun playing the same game again and again with a slightly different skin. At least you have the confidence that they've already been through thousands of the same problems in the previous 20 iterations of the game to have them ironed out by now.
There were all of 2069 people who backed at £150 or above on the Kickstarter and between them they contributed 38% of the £1.5 million raised during the campaign. Being a Founder was always intended to come with benefits such as discounts and access to missions only given to Elite pilots, regardless of your true Elite rank.
Without the Founder+ backers it is entirely possible the Kickstarter would have failed and those of you complaining wouldn't have a game to play at all. It isn't "pay to win", the Founders paid so that everyone could have an opportunity to win.
I won't go anywhere with pages full of unsold exploraton data
I do hope they fix it soon. I didn't realize how much I really enjoy exploring until I wasn't able to do it.
I would risk running back to deep space and just stay gone till its fixed, but the impossible to win interdiction game every other jump, well its too scary for me.
The "we are working on it" is great but an ETA would be better. I bet that stuff would of never made it to the public if it were trading that was broken.
Explorers are worthless.
Known critical bugs in beta 1 2 and 3. Still pushed out because Who the Frack Cares about quality.
I am quite annoyed.
The version is 1.1.02.
Don't think they knew it doesn't work. In beta there were no old data to scan. Everybody started for a new, and in the game there are a lot of explorers who were waiting fir the patch to sell data by page instead of by single system.
