Roadmap leaked??

Did a technical artist tell you this?!!?!!

Sounds legit ;)
Nope, but just logic, quoting my other post on player bases vs. atmo-planets_

I would be happy to see both, but just still need to say that I have no understanding on programming, but actually developing based on this (P2P) engine multipple constantly changing modular bases might actually be much more complicated than design and code with PG (procedural generation, that will produce unlimited amount of alternatives after put in enough variables).

Actually some algorithms on code like simple planetary formations, trees/weed/plants/desert and even animals from smaller area and replicate it on different forms on different planets might require much less work than nursing what and where ever players deside to put their base in (and if choices are possible, in what form?).
 
Ok Watson ;)

(PS would be interested in seeing the debunked leaks if you can find them easy enough. Would be interesting to compare the styles. I only remember one in recent times, posted here in DD, but that one had a different cadence & was super transparent off the bat).
I've been defeated by forum search unfortunately.
 
Im genuinely curious as to what people who want legs expect it to be.

Are they looking for a fps or just more of the same with legs.
I'm not bothered by first person, but I do think the real advantage is the scale of the game and the object within it are not obvious, this becomes much clearer in first person. Or VR. I think it's worth it potentially for that reason alone, but guns etc? Couldnt care less.
 
I bought NMS recently as it is having a VR update allegedly...
Base building, not using creator mode, is tedious grind, importing even more faffing around for materials into ED would surely 'raise the roof', even if for something new! As for the idea of turning Space Legs out to make a FPS, well - that would convince me to go somewhere else immediately :)

I think the 'leak' is likely complete moopoo and will wait to see what FD brings to the table next year, I'm more tempted to believe atmospheric planets, but won't be holding my breath.
 
The entire "leak" sounded like an anti-Frontier Troll to me. The word "Maintenance Mode" is exclusively used by Frontier Haters, so it was easy to pick it as a fake. FPS game-play & base building? Sheesh, maybe I should warn you all that the word gullible has been taken out of the dictionary.

TIL saying Elite is/was in maintenance mode makes you a hater.

Spot on. They also seem mad about dinosaurs and say they are scrapping JWE to make a sequel because the first is so broken, other favorites of the games angry ex-boyfriends.
 
Have you considered that it could be an intentional leak filled with true and false information?
Just to see the players reaction and make further choices for the future... They should've realized now that we prefer atmospheric planets to spacelegs 🤣

No.

But I can believe it's providing someone with much amusement at the moment.
 
Oh god, I hope this doesn’t lock functional content for bases and ships behind a paywall! This game will take a huge dump if it goes this route.

I do love the idea of getting out of my seat and wandering around my ships, though. Hopefully there is gameplay around repairing or reloading your ship while in super cruise assist mode!
I don't see it. Micro transactions work great for games with millions of players. It doesn't matter if you annoy the majority of your players because when 10% buy a €5 DLC that's still several hundred thousands revenue. If only 10% of the Elite community buys something that's next to nothing, which only makes sense for low effort stuff like paintjobs.
 
With GDPR, non disclosure agreements and employment contracts as they are in the current age, I strongly feel that leaks like this are unlikely to happen.
I suspect that its either a deliberate release by FD or a bit of made up fun by someone.
Either way its a bit of fun speculating what is ahead, in the absence of any further information from FD.
 
Wondered when this thread was gonna pop-up. This news is a few days old now. I don't actively follow this forum or the game anymore, and even I heard of it on other outlets.
Back in the day, people would have jumped right away to speculate on the news, regardless of its veridity. Now it took a few days and a video from a longtime game supporter to get a thread started here.

It's true, you're definitely better than us.

Well that is what usually happens in the games, people tend to play rather than be at the forums (me being here now after kickstarter for other reason than some bugs has been very very rare, problem with a launcher brought me here now).
