    Anyone playing recently? having a blast recently yet again. started a new game 2 months ago. still trying to make more money. for now 22Million credits. Traveled California nebula wish ASPX. while returning back encountered some NPC enemies and they killed me easily with ASPX. try to get SOL system permit. Doing some federation missions. exchanged that ASPX with Vulture. ripping enemy ships with it easily.

    Tried Type 7 transporter or what ever it is called. holly sht. that cargo space. done poem missions to deliver that from A to B. each mission gave me like 400K. not bad. they were 1 jump distance anyway. but pirate attacks r so intense. this ship can’t escape easily from those interdictions or how u call it.

    What u guys doing around? if any players exists .

    I have about 3 billion credits in total assets. Got all permits I care about (except for founders permit; not even I can grind to such extremes.) Have a Python, Anaconda, FDL, Vulture, ASP, all top kitted, and many small ships, and half a billion credits.

    There's not much to do. Haven't played in months (actually more than a year now.) I tried engineering my ships to the max, but I got tired looking at spreadsheets. More time is spent looking at websites with spreadsheets rather than playing the game.

    Waiting for something to happen in this game that makes it fun again. But development pace is even slower than even Star Citizen, so I'm not holding my breath for 2018. Maybe 2019. Maybe.

    Wow man. I think I am the only person who is poor in this game. how many hours u put into it?

    I play like I am living it. even tried to play like it is a RPG. but hard to earn, easy to loose.

    @Tj, Mo version? I think I have it but never touched it. CQC this is that rank I guess. Close Quarters Combat I presume. there is too many PRO players I this game. I have it since 2014 but still trying to understand it. Properly played it last year with OCOLUS. Then couldn’t play and stopped. Now playing since 2 months. and here 22M credits and vulture. can’t earn much. can’t play a lot anyway too.

    Should be around 150 to 200 hours. Most of that was at the beginning of 2015 when it came out, and 2016 when Horizons was released.

    It was easier to earn credits. I could bounty hunt big ships and do smuggling missions with big payouts. Then they nerfed everything and made earning credits very boring. I mostly stopped playing when that happened, as it wasn't fun for me anymore. To me, it looks impossible to buy all the big ships in the game now. Just not possible. Unless your idea of fun is playing the same game for thousands of hours.

    Now I hop into the game from time to time to check out minor updates, but that's about it. The last update that made me play again was Horizons. They never added anything like that again since then. From what they hinted at so far, a Horizons-like update may be be released in 2019.

    New Ships

    Krait Phantom (Faulcon DeLacy)

    With a spacious cargo hold and a relatively generous quantity of hardpoints, the Krait Phantom is a versatile ship suited to a range of roles. It has enough firepower to hold its own against larger targets, and enough straight-line speed to outpace smaller targets. The ship also offers eight internal compartments, allowing the pilot to tailor the ship to their requirements. And while it lacks the firepower and fighter bay of its sister ship, the Krait Mk II, it is both faster and lighter.

    • 2 large and 2 medium hardpoints
    • 8 Internal optional slots
    • Top speed of 256m/s and a boost speed of 358m/s
    • 8.23LY laden FSD range

    Mamba (Zorgon Peterson)

    Based on an unreleased racing prototype, the Mamba is one of the fastest ships in production. It can also deliver a lot of punishment, boasting one huge and two large hardpoints. This emphasis on firepower and speed means the ship can hit hard and fast, vanishing before the target has a chance to react. Comparisons to the Fer-de-Lance, also produced by Zorgon Peterson, will be inevitable, but the Mamba is in fact faster in a straight line, while being slightly less maneuverable.

    • 1 huge, 2 large and 2 small hardpoints
    • 5 internal optional slots
    • Top speed of 316m/s and a boost speed of 387m/s
    • 6.37LY laden FSD range

    Quality of Life

    • Display a notification icon to indicate new bindings are available to the player
    • Starport contacts now displayed as a grid, rather than a flat list
    • Added icon to info panel to show players if their ship or SRV lights are on
    • Audio Options screen:

    • Added “Wavescanner Autodocking” option. Disable this to hear the SRV wavescanner more clearly at high speeds
    • Audio Options screen is reorganised for more clarity and ease of use
    • Restore defaults button added
    • The default position on the Audio volume sliders is now indicated.
    • The child volume sliders can now be boosted above the default value.
    • Important note: your volume sliders will be reset to default position when you first run 3.3.

    necro-ing the thread a bit, new trailer. I have some mixed feelings about this game but glad they're still working on it and trying new things

    oh oh, they're totally going after Star Citizen player base right? Those armor/space suit even look familiar.

    Well, unlike Star Citizen, Elite has been "out" a couple of years now. I guess you could say that they want to snatch the playerbase before SC comes out and gets it (whenever that may be).

    I'm not a big fan of the whole flying thing anyway, got SC because you're playing a character most of the time, if Elite adds this dimension to their game experience they have my attention.

    Just a heads up, Elite Dangerous will be available as a freebie on EGS this week and I think the game now contains all the content from the 1st expansion too.

    New expansion on its way sometime 2021 and we'll finally get to stretch our legs on planets and stations to some degree. [Edit] didn't spot the video about the new expansion already posted above. doh!

    Highly recommend anyone who fancies a space game to give this a go if you haven't yet. It's not a perfect game but its very atmospheric and the mouse + keyboard controls are done well so no need for joystick setups.

    Actually, they might be more interested in hardcore NMS player base... Fauna, sampling kit, exploration, rewards for finding new stuff...

    Nice! I'll grab it for free on my two Epic accounts even though I was a backer and have the game + Horizons, my biggest annoyance (besides the lack of endgame) was and still is the way the combat takes place, that it's not free and open as you're flying around but you have to fly into the whole combat corridor and then have the fights with other ships.

    I have never bothered with the combat in this game, the few times i gave it a whirl it felt too clunky and horrible to bother with, so i just spent the time being a delivery driver and miner, of course i play in solo these days seeing as i was a easy target for the a@@hats who are bored with the game and now just hang around waiting to blow people up for no reason. Lol

    Yeah I don't do MP in this or any other game, if I wanted to meet toxic people in my spare time I'd hang out on 4chan or something ;)

    I tried it quite briefly (~50 hours) two years ago, it was quite fun for that time and I might pick it up again, but I can't say I that in that time I had unpleasant encounters with players. Had one really nice one, but most players are just there, that's when you even encounter them.

    Looks like Frontier underestimated the influx of new players thanks to the Epic Promo... or me bumping this thread had way more influence than I anticipated! The servers just took a legit dump and went on strike. Hopefully they'll sort it out soon'ish.

    This has VR right, wonder how it will work with steamVR and Epic.
