Only for study and reproduction so that I can write an exhaustive bug report about it.
Quite true.One mans exploit is another mans ‘working as intended’!
I disagree 100%.[...]without web third party tools this game would be next to unplayable[...]
If I was 12, no. That’s when I learned exploits and cheats suck the fun right out of any game.Would you use an exploit?
Are there any things that you consider ok that others consider an exploit?
What is “too much”?
Does it make a difference that it’s a multiplayer game?
What about exploits in other games?
As we did last time, here's some of the Lave Radio Crew's initial thoughts...
- I'd not use an exploit in multiplayer games
- My take on an exploit in Elite, is probably far stronger than most peoples... I wont even do some acts that are potentially against the intent of the Developers... For example, back when the game was 1st released, Rare Trading allowed you to make ridiculous credits and so many of the early community made bank with it. I considered it an exploit and deliberately didn't do it. Frontier obviously nerfed Rare Trading to what we have today and no actions were taken against cmdrs who partook. Similarly I've not joined in on the Long Distance Passenger Mission Rush and so on!
- I am not however whiter than white!!! I will use cheat codes etc to my hearts content in Single Player Games, for example in the Mass Effect games and Cyber Punk 2077 I've added materials to my games because I just can't be bothered with that side of what they call game play!!! Also I was banned for a month from playing GTA because I got sick of modders in the PC port putting flaming toilets on people all the time, so I used a mod menu to remove them. Rock Star banned me and zero'd my game...
I used to take Federation Corporate State passenger missions, specifically so that I could turn them over to the brave resistance members as a modicum of justice.I've not carried passengers for a few weeks - but your comments brought back the 'take your passenger to XXX instead and sell as slaves' offers that used to pop up in comms - It has been ages since the last I saw
What egg???I even found the idea of exploiting the egg made me want to vomit with horror. I mean, how bloody boring anyway!
??? Is that mat trading? or using less mats for engineers?Engineer 5 to 1 exploit.
This!If FDev says it's an exploit I don't do it.
I don't care what everyone else is doing.*
