    I love Elite. I haven't played properly since the latter part of 2016. The engineering changes put me off. I have engineered my entire fleet. Then all of a sudden I had to start over. I was devastated. I may play again when the first person shooter expansion gets released.

    It can't be any worse than Star Citizen. You would have thought CiG would have thrown something interesting to do. Nope you get this ridiculous start where it can take up to 10 minutes to even get to your ship. The the game is just boring anyway. There is nothing compelling to do outside of the same old same. All this time and the mechanics are not even fun. ED urinates over it for pacing, style, fluidity of the flight model, fun. The only thing SC has over ED is looks and even then SC is starting to look old. It's been in development for nearly 10 years. I wish I could get my money back. I was a 2012 backer.

    No matter where you buy the game these are just launcher shortcuts, the game itself will still open the main Frontier launcher, and yes it is VR no matter where you buy the game. ;)

    That was quite a fun run, although I remember it took me about 40 min, to go there. Met a nice dude there and we had a good chat. Just make sure you have enough fuel to actually get there.

    Mugs..

    I ended up just minimizing the game, thankfully it doesn't crash when you do other things.

    Took more than an hour to get there.

    wow.
    Elite meets Space Engine. It was about time.

    Ready to reinstall, although I might have given up my triple monitor setup a tad too soon :(

    They sure increased bounty payouts. Was getting back into the game last night and really wanted a diamondback explorer to go and explore but didn't have the money because my playing has always been a bit sporadic and most of my time with ED was prior to the release of Power Play. Went into a high RES and started blasting, next thing I know I had made 1.7mil in like 10 minutes. Got a plot routed now into the sticks and ima gonna go see what I can find! Fully expecting to run out of fuel due to bad course plotting and end up stranded.

    That's what the general consensus is but it was outside of my budget. Could have grinded out the creds for it but I felt it best to try a cheaper ship in case it turns out that exploration isn't my cup of tea.

    Btw, am I supposed to link my Elite account with Steam or Epic Games now ? If I look at the pre-purchase for Odyssey it directs me to Steam ? I bought the game directly from Frontier's website back in the day and I've not done the Steam link thing.
