Elite: Dangerous - updates!


#341

Still, Awesome!


#342

Congratulations! I’ll see you at Jamison Memorial.

…so what’s your secret trade route? Asking for a friend…


#343

I guess now I should go get combat elite too lol


#344

Good ideas, good perspectives… little time to type them out and discuss.
I’ll be back.


#345

This all sounds really interesting, but now I fear I’m going to have to upgrade to a bigger ship than my Clipper for mining. All these extra modules are going to take up more space/ hardpoints than I think I could afford to give up.


#346

I still haven’t got into this game, what days do yall get on?


#347

I’ve been taking a break since the Hornet dropped - I’d been burned out as of late, but I’ll likely revisit after the new content drops next week. I’ll let you know when I’m looking to be in.


#348

ok. ive literally got 5 mins in game.


#349

@Andrew116, still flying?


#350

Yep I’m still around. Been on a little less while I’m waiting for the update next week. But anytime you guys wanna fly let me know.


#351

What system y’all close to these days?


#352

I’m sort of all over. I was last in whatever system had the most recent gold rush with skimmers a few weeks ago, and I think my Clipper is somewhere with Thargoids. I think a couple of my ships are still in Branglal though, and I can move wherever.


#353

I’m mostly on the western edge of the bubble, but really I got long jump ranges so I can be where ever I’m needed.


#354

Krait unveiled plus some narrative.


#355

If only elite featured actual crew members you could hire and see in your ship, improve their skills over time etc.

Over time I have fallen quite out of love with elite as a game. It’s still a great VR experience though.


#356

I sort of agree. NPC crew would feel really good.

In the end, tainted from all the previous games, for me it’s all about me and the Multicrew.
Earlier this year I had a German crewmate that provided me relief from space madness. :smiley:


#357

I hope that’s a hint at walking around, even if just on the pad looking at your ship would add so much immersion… I didn’t think the Krait was that big when I was a kid?! I thought it was a single seat fighter? Looks nice though.


#358

Trust me it’s not. I know- I’d love it too.
But this is primarily a space game and most of its development will go that way.


#359

True, I just want to be more connected to the ship I guess. I’m not really bothered about walking around on ship just to get out at a station and have an area around the ship to walk would be awesome.


#360

Yup, I’m with you on that…
Plus we already have the avatars…
