I got this game awhile back when I bought my oculus, and it's absolutely mesmerizing to fly around and see the planets as you fly by... but I simply cannot figure out how to actually "play" this game... I'm a huge fan of free-form games that let you make your own path, but it seems like there just isn't any gameplay loop beyond "pick this up here, and take it there." It's like a flight simulator for futuristic space ships and nothing more.

That's how it felt to me before the planet surfaces were added and I haven't gathered the strength to get back into it after that. It's a shame you're confirming my fear of Elite still being what it was...

On the other hand, the way I eventually played Elite Dangerous (and spending a good 60 odd hours) was; I made up my own adventures, for example setting a target system WAY far away and travelling to it, trying to get as many exploration bonuses and scans along the way, making it a great sightseeing tour across the galaxy; and then finding the nearest mission hub to my destination to really get to know that part of space. Because it does offer different factions and different parts to get. But yeah, the bottom line of Elite back then really was just to choose a way to grind together your next best ship upgrade, rinse and repeat. And that's a pretty damn long grind too.

the game give you complete freedom on role you want to play. how you achieve is up to you.
it is always like this with open-ended games. you have so much things to do that you dont know where to start and you are constantly sidetracked by something else. while you are trying this and that you lose focus on your "big goal"

i've started 2nd time into game (i play solo). 1st time was before engineers update and i didnt liked it much. rewards for missions was small, control of the ship with m&k was meh, i didnt had a clue what i am doing and i just left it for quite long time.

now i have this. ship control is far more pleasant. missions are more divers with a lot better rewards. after i've maxed out sidewinder i've made a little resurch on what to be my next ship and i've started picking highest reward missions that i think i can complete. got money for cobra mk3 and it's initial outfit w/o hassle (iirc i couldnt make it till mk3 1st time). got rank in exploration and combat and half way to next rank in trader. in mean time increased rep with some minor factions and feds i think if i join fed i will be eligible for rank up straight away. then i've checked what are those engineers all about. i've decided some mods could be useful so i am now working on unlocking independent engis. weapon guy was easy but hull, armor lady is a bit boooooooring (at least for me). have to mine 500 ore. i've bought type 6 set it up for mining (B refinery, scan and gather drones etc) but after 8-10th asteroid i get sleepy so this one goes slowly. i do make some money from selling ore but missions are far more effective (i havnt looked for high value mats or mining missions thou)
i've havent been into powerplay but from what i've read about it give you a opportunity to influence galaxy politics (should you are interested in this, i am not so far). not 100% sure on this but i think after initial setup of powerplay changes in the faction influence is fully community driven and randomness in this aspect comes from strategical and tactical moves of community guild/alliances that are big enough to influence galaxy map.

you also have weekly community goals that give you nice cash rewards (fight and trade missions in specific system) where you join your effort with the rest of the community and yes it is available in solo mode too.


but they seemed like fancy packaging to make the grind a bit more meaningful... am I right or wrong
grinding is there but it isnt as mandatory as in other mmos. there isnt best ship and bigger/more expensive doesnt mean better. if you find reasonably priced multi role ship works ok for you dont need to spend for bigger one. just max up all modules and enjoy your time.


There is one thing, even with Powerplay, that still seems amiss, and that is persistence and 'presence'
well it depends on what you expect from the game. it is just space ship flight sim. everything else is added to give you some reason to fly from A to B. what you will get from the game is up to you. if you like you can play role. if you like you can try to influence galaxy politics. whether you will be noticed or not depends on the time and effort you will put on this. frontier are trying to build alive galaxy which in some aspects is fully in other partly driven from community. how successful this will be is yet to be seen.

Thargoids is an addition to the game, it seems 2.4 is going to be a long-term release patch as well, taking months to come to fruition. I would expect Thargoids are here to stay once they've been released. We'll keep a spot open for ya! :)

Still trying to get to Colonia. Kill me plz. im in a rinkey dink hauler because after a year off the game I forgot my diamondback didnt have a fuel scoop. So I drove it into a sun. now im on the slow crawl from SOL to Colonia at a 13l/yr jump range. and scooping every so often. its 22k light years away.

maximum tears. im hoping my cartography turn in will net me enough to get a better ship. Thoughts?

Can't the hauler get a 20-ish ly jumprange pretty cheap? The cartography will for sure get you tons of credits though

Hey guys. I wanna try and get back into this game again. And when I say "try" and "back into" I mean I have tried three times but with a keyboard and mouse but ive tried three times. I think I just dont have the proper equipment that I need to play this game. Looks really good and I really want to get into it especially with my ultrawide.

Any recommendations for a joystick or the like? Nothing too balls to the wall.

My favorite has been the CH Fighter Stick USB...hands down the best. I also have used a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro USB...and it is okay...but the twist rudder sucks!

Fighter Stick USB + Logitech G13 was my favorite combination. Thumstick was lateral thrusters on the G13. Worked great.

In the TPU news post where you initially posted and I was tagged I gave you some of my custom keyboard config I use when playing KB + Mouse. For me it makes a helluva difference in how well I play and how much I enjoy flying.

Greetings Commanders,

The galaxy servers are currently down to allow us to update to 3.0 Elite Dangerous: Beyond - Chapter One.

The downtime is expected to last for approximately 9 hours, although this could potentially go over.

We have posted the full change log below, and a summary of how the features will work in Chapter One, will be available on the forum later today.

New features for 3.0

Crime
  • Crime & Counter Crime system overhaul, including Advance Tactical Response (ATR)
  • When the player is destroyed they are not necessarily returned to the last port they docked at, based on a prioritised list of rules
  • If players are destroyed when a fine/bounty has been detected they will respawn at a detention centre
  • Players that join a Multi-crew session in someone else’s ship, and commit a crime, have a corresponding fine/bounty added to their own most valuable ship
  • Players can store hot modules (modules applied to a ship at the time a crime is committed)
  • Players can clean ships of any bounties and fines through an Interstellar Factor contact
  • Players can sell hot ships from the shipyard for a markdown
  • Access to port services including ship transferring/storage/retrieval/selling are limited if the player docks in a 'wanted' ship (bounties and fines) applicable in that jurisdiction, and the cost is increased where transfer is possible
  • Power bounties are issued instead of normal bounties for criminal acts to do with valid Powerplay interactions
  • Players can see details on fines and bounties in the wanted ships cockpit, the shipyard and the ship transfer screens
  • New crime recognised: "reckless weapons discharge"
  • Bounties and fines incurred by players are applied to the ship that the crime was committed in and never go dormant
  • Kill Warrant Scanner changes and Interstellar Bounties will be coming soon

Trade Data & Galaxy Map
  • Galaxy map now indicates its mode when any tab is active

  • Commodity Market: Players can search trade data they own, to compare it to the current market
  • Prison ships have been added to one of the routes to Colonia
  • Ship yards added to Caravanserai in Gandharvi and Eudaemon Anchorage in Rohini



Engineers
  • Material Trader contacts, which allow the player to convert materials. * Horizons only
  • Engineering a module or weapon results in progressively better improvements within a range
  • Players can convert and modify their older modules/weapons engineered before this update
  • Players can modify modules/weapons at selected ports (ports with access to outfitting) outside Engineer ports
  • Players can select which experimental effect they want to apply to their module, at a material cost
  • Players are presented with a screen where they can choose the module/weapon to modify, the Blueprint to apply or pin, see the material cost, and preview the outcome



Weapons and modules
  • Added Technology Broker contacts, which allows the player to unlock new weapons and modules in return for specific materials and commodities. * Horizons only
  • Medium Shock Cannon (Fixed, gimbal & turret)
  • Medium Remote Flechette Launcher (Fixed & Turret)

  • Size 4 Meta Alloy Hull Reinforcement Package
  • Recon Limpet Controller



Galnet Audio
