Let's be honest, the whole Interstellar Initiative thing is a massive joke. Instead of doing a one week contained CG, it's now over four weeks, and, as usual, they are utterlly clueless about what they want to do, what the playerbase wants, and completely and utterly ignore the playerbase when we tell them something isn't right.
I mean, who the hell at FDev agreed that this ferry service was useful? Who? Do they play the game? 700 lightyears? It's utterly useless! It's clear it wasn't even thought out, and the people behind it were just expecting to be lavished with praise for a new and bold move by the playerbase.
Utterly clueless. Little wonder I've played <100 hours since before Thargoids came back (LMAO btw).
Yes, I can take a different ship with small jump range and explore for a week then jump back. I dock the ship in the evening, the next day it's there without any effort/boredom at all. Why would anyone be against it?
No, and I'm just glad it has a limited range and doesn't take you straight to Sag A, Beagle Point, and back (the journey there is half the fun). It's just a tad disappointing that A) the vote took place on the forum and not in-game and B) that it still doesn't give new-to-Guardian-crap players the slightest clue what to do when they actually get to Guardian space.
