Sorry to hear that, Chris. Condolances
Sad to hear that, Chris; I am sorry for your loss.Well, to once again return to the OP question:
I burried my brother, today. I haven't been playing Elite for the last week, but now I'm ready to start again. I think it will be a nice therapy.
I'm thinking of once again clearing my save and starting over. Maybe a clean mining+exploration playthrough. It should be fun.
FOV?A couple of things struck me, though. I'd like to be able to reduce the HUD and cockpit (SRV and ship) so that it's on-screen size was smaller, as well as the font. Is this doable? It'd be nice to see more scenery and less space taken by the tech (while maintaining all the functionality).
It's in Settings.xmlIs that in the graphics_override.xml file somewhere? Must go and take a look!
I think I have it set around 95. I guess if you're not happy with the in-game maximum, you can start at 80 or 90 and go up by five.Chris, I'm assuming this is the line:
What increments can be used and what is the theoretical maximum/optimum, would you know? Or possibly advise on? Much appreciated!
I don't want to enter something stupid and get the game all crashtastic.
Honestly, depends which direction you're going.Drat. Forgot to try this and Mrs. Tyres has gone all online shopping on me so it will be a while.
Time to add a laptop to my device collection?
I was thinking though... how far, on average, does one have to travel from say, Diaguandri before unexplored systems start appearing? I suppose I should just pick a direction and keep going.
I'm enjoying the newer explo model these days and I've got the bug back to do more of it. Currently at 47% Ranger so there's truckloads to find before getting my second Elite.
Depends on the direction. I recommend you fly away from spots you see mentioned on the forum a lot. In my experience doing this will have you finding untagged systems around 800-900 lightyears.I was thinking though... how far, on average, does one have to travel from say, Diaguandri before unexplored systems start appearing?
