Ok, I’m surprised we’ve gone this long without a thread about Elite Dangerous.
So… I’ll kick it off.
I played it a lot in beta and then after release but I stopped for several months. A lot has changed since then and I’m loving it. Horizons adds some pretty cool stuff as well.
Who’s got it and what’s your in game name?
Where are you? (Note whether that’s a temporary location or base of operations)
What ships do you fly?
What do you spend most of your time doing?
To start with answering my own questions, my name in game is Jim Bandit.
Currently I’m hanging around LTT 15575, but I plan on making a trek towards Maia fairly soon. I want to check out the barnacles and there’s supposed to be some pretty good (illegal) cargo run missions out that way.
My primary ship is the trusty Viper. Love the thing but looking to upgrade to a Vulture soon. I’ve got a Type 6 as well but I’ll probably sell that before I leave for Maia. I do also have a free Viper Mk IV laying around somewhere but I don’t know how I’d retrieve it. Sure would be nice if you could pay to have ships delivered to you.
I spend most of my time bounty hunting or doing bulletin board cargo missions.
For what it’s worth, I do spend most of my time running in private group mode. I have enough problems with AI interdiction trolls, I don’t need live ones as well. Feel free to add me in game and I’ve got a small private group under the same name.
I’m still out of town at the moment but hoping to get some time online sometime this weekend or next week.
