  1. I can see that. They certainly don't have any functioning market; prices are what they are, and I'm not sure players have any way to affect them in that sense. Money is so easy to come by that it's ceased to be a currency that people really worry about; the real currency that people scramble for is materials, and those can't be traded between players in any way. I do wish player factions mattered in some way, but I'm not sure they're willing to allow the world to be completely defined by player actions, the way I hear Eve seems to be.
  2. I think Elite will make some serious expansions in 2020, but there's no way to know what those are. I'm personally hoping a first person element, plus landing on planets with atmospheres. No Man's Sky had a really weak opening, to the point where there were accusations of it being an outright scam, but it's apparently made some huge leaps in the past year or so. I'd like to see Elite do the same.
  3. No repair limpets? You not gonna name the corvette?
  4. Yeah, I do about the same. Over 1 mil is worth my time, other stuff usually not.
  5. You stick to high-grading the scans, right? Pretty much just scanning ELWs, WWs, and anything terraformable?
  6. What appeals to you about it? I generally have tried to use the best one that only controls one at a time, on the grounds that any more is a waste. Also, the D-rated and E-rated versions purposely accept lesser components in an effort to achieve the cheapest price, especially the E-rated models.
  7. I agree. I always hate how regional accents get looked down on as "uneducated" sounding, to be honest. As long as you're speaking intelligibly and your accent doesn't make you too hard to understand, I think regional accents are great. I'd love to hear more Southern accents, Brooklynese, and New England accents on television. The news is the worst; they simply won't accept you speaking with anything but the American version of the British "received pronunciation", which for us is a flat Midwestern accent. Also, I immediately assumed it was an April Fool's video. Yamiks made one too.
  8. “Raxxler.” The Brits may be wasteful of their U’s, shoehorning them into words that don’t need them, like honor and flavor, and also cram an extra I into a perfectly good word like aluminum, adding an unnecessary syllable, but their habit of adding an R sound to words, giving us “Raxxler” and “idear” and so forth, is a charming idiosyncrasy, which by sheer coincidence also happens to be a characteristic of the accent of my own part of America.
  9. I updated my older guide to outfitting a deep core miner, put it in a Google doc this time around. Opinions? https://docs.google.com/document/d/1n7oUX9BGiG6JgCuu7YxJzUwNOQUANdnU8qIaMOCELUc/edit?usp=sharing
  10. Not surprising. At all. I'm hoping that next year's major update will include getting out of the ships, plus a heavy rework of smuggling and crime in general, but I do wonder if they're actually going anywhere with the Thargoid.
  11. You do have enough for the rebuy, right?
  12. Well, I think it's time I make it official. Florb's Iron Law of Internet Game Forums: The closer a game forum is to being the official forum of the game publisher, the more toxic it will be. Putting it in bold and italics makes it Internet Law. This is a known known. I'm on the last day of a three-day ban because I politely questioned their removal of a mildly sarcastic comment. r/elite_dangerous is much better, much more hospitable. Somebody actually started r/elitedangerous_ and made it a private sub, and they admitted to me in a private message that it was purely as a placeholder to keep anybody else from starting yet another ED general sub. Toxic. The specialty subs are good, but low-traffic, I find.
