I just want a big red flashing phone that is a hotline through to the Brabster.
Indeed.But all that is COMMUNICATION!!!
You know, that word that other's in the community are complaining that there is a LACK OF & that we need BETTER of too!!!
You just can't please some people.
You will until the umpteenth time he calls you up at daft ‘o clock in the morning in tears at all the negativity on the forums. Then you’ll mention Powerplay and he’ll just hang up on you.I just want a big red flashing phone that is a hotline through to the Brabster.
I'm running the Windows version as I've had to since 2018I'm not dismissing your concern, not even slightly, but it's possible that they're not even sure exactly what it is they need to do yet, no? They're working on it.
Also, trust me, you would NOT want the current PC state ported to console.
Nah, he'd ring me because i'm like this guy:You will until the umpteenth time he calls you up at daft ‘o clock in the morning in tears at all the negativity on the forums. Then you’ll mention Powerplay and he’ll just hang up on you.
POW ZZAPHoly update chaos Brabman!!!!
... for we are legion - resistance is futile!There is no "we". You don't speak for me.
No, it's just them, we're communicating 24/7 (check the issue tracker) - they're just not responding. Not that I'm expecting a detailed roadmap of where the game is and where's it's going, or a dev diary that turned into another 'we're fixing stuff and things have changed' post.If you feel like FDev isn't communicating well, is it really them and them alone? Or is it possible, however unlikely, it can be us?
If the shoe fits or do you still believe the alpha we got sold as a finished release was, y'know, actually a release build of the game?... and called liars, thieves, swindlers and...
So now we have Chris Roberts as the Penguin tooPOW ZZAP
'Luckily old chum, I have my anti-spaghetti code spray on my utility belt. If I can just dislocate my shoulder .......... there!'
'Holy C++ Brabman, that heroic dev sacrificed himself to release the code'.
'Yes Brabin, that's the sort of employee that Frontier hires. To the Brabenmobile!'
No I don't. Heck, FD even admitted as much by now. I just fail to see how throwing about even more unsubstantiated promises will somehow improve the situation.If the shoe fits or do you still believe the alpha we got sold as a finished release was, y'know, actually a release build of the game?
I don't need dates. It would be nice but it's not really a concern.Honest question: What is it, exactly, that they're supposed to "communicate?"
You can't publish a deadline (well, you can, but it would momentously stupid) until you have a realistic idea that you can meet it.To some people communication isn't communication & is ignored if it isn't the communication that the listener WANTS to hear.
Arf said it on stream a couple of weeks ago, when asked why there's no listed fix post beforehand when an update is coming, until it's released.
His response was true & quite correct...."the team are working right up to the last moments fixing & testing stuff & some may be found to cause other issues, so then wouldn't be included...." or words to that effect.
And that's probably why this 'roadmap' for fixes probably won't be a workable idea.
I'd like to hear that too, believe me, because this launch was horrid, but I don't expect them to give me answers until they have some they can actually give us.What I want to know. When you consider what EDO has brought to the game. How did we end up in a situation where computers that are les than 3 years old end up being outdated? And this was sprung us at very late notice don't forget.
Frontier may know now...I don't need dates. It would be nice but it's not really a concern.

Has the technology failed?
Was optimisation actually done?
What technology was introduced?
Whilst I don't require specific dates, a road map on the optimisation process would be very handy so I can make an informed decision on whether to upgrade my computer or not. Considering the chip shortage and prices. It would be nice to know.
Bingo.Update 6 is being worked on and we are exploring additional features and improvements to Odyssey which we will be more than happy to share with you once we can be sure what we show you is at least very close to what you will get.
That's a good point.......to US it's a game, but to the Frontier staff it's their livelihood.Bingo.
Keep doing that. I appreciate it. I don't like pie-in-the-sky announcements, even though I'm thirsty for updates.
You keep on giving us what you can give and nothing more. I appreciate that.
Best of luck to all of you. I know you're working your ARXes off, why wouldn't you? It's not just a game franchise, it's your jobs.
Keep on keeping on and all of my best!
